I originally planned for my wife & I to go for the weekend Sept 16-18th only but as it turned out one of Sandra's closest friends came to Connecticut to visit us that weekend. Well then I had to improvise because Sandra didn't know about the rental because I was going to use that getaway to celebrate our 10 Year... More

Beautiful spot to have a wedding. Seems to be a lace where there are weddings non stop here, for example the bride for our wedding was walking down the aisle as the bride and groom for another wedding were taking pictures somewhat near the grounds. Was very nice, food service was kind of slow in the reception hall (did not... More

We were so impressed with the Water's Edge. YES, it is expensive but the villas are beautiful. We were in the area for a family reunion and really wanted to stay in an updated unit. I can't speak to the hotel rooms or the "time share" part of the property, but the villas are very modern and immaculate. Manager Patrick... More

Nice hotel, clean, needs a bit of updating. Pricey. Food is good but excessively priced. All employees are helpful. There were 3 different hallways leading to our room. One of the floors was on quite an angle, my husband tripped every time we walked it. The view is great. They need to be less stingy with towels. I don't know... More

My husband and I returned to Water's Edge Resort after a 13 year hiatus. It was always on our list of "must go back" - this time was for an Anniversary Celebration. While the location is still incredible and the hotel a bit tired but still nice, the welcome was less than welcoming. We arrived at 12:30 and asked in... More

We visited the hotel with my grandparents and two children for one night in August. The hotel is so clean and just beautiful. The food is overpriced but ok. I would go back in a heartbeat, in fact we are thinking of making it a yearly trip. We stayed in the library section and the rooms were spacious and well... More

Although I live close by, I attend many functions, some that include overnights at Waters Edge. The Resort has an amazing spa. The rooms are a throw of the dice. When you book, ask for the newly renovated rooms. There are weddings every weekend all weekend there - so if photobombing is your thing .... 😬. The food at the... More

This property is in a beautiful setting and staff are friendly & accommodating. It's been about 7 years since I had stayed there & the property could really use some updating. The rooms are a bit dated in the decor and common areas are looking worn. The location is great and food was good. I ordered dinner in the bar... More

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The hotel room is a nice size, however, it did not come with a refrigerator. If we wanted one they were going to charge us $10 day, we paid enough for the room so we opted not to pay any extra. There is a pool right on the LI... More
