A really great location to stay...restaurant was fine no problems, awesome island night with lovely food. I think the staff could of been more friendly the best staff member I encountered was the porter who showed us to our room. Our room was nice and we were upgraded overlooking the pool. Unsure if I would stay at the Edgewater again but overall it was great in terms of the location and the beach.

Thank you for posting your comments while staying with us here at The Edgewater Resort & Spa. It is a pleasure hosting you at our famous island night buffet and show, with the variety of island food and desserts we have available that is a highlight for many visitors while on holiday with us, and having our island dancing show while dining is a great way to enjoy our culture and food. We appreciate your comments regarding some of our staff and will be sure to look into this further with our management team.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Rarotonga in the near future.

We stayed as our first overseas trip (Jan 2012) and we also decided to get married while we were here too.

From the wedding planner to the staff in the bar and also to the hair dresser and make-up artist who made everything special for us.

Enjoyed the entertainment on the teo nights that they were showing, food awesome too!!!!!

We stayed at edgewater over Xmas , we booked a garden room however we were upgraded to a lagoon view room . The porters were very helpfull. The room was on the second level and had great westerly views toward the amazing sunsets . The room had a king size bed and a single , large bathroom with bath and shower. The rooms are exactly what we needed , considering you spend all day outside doing things . Having a balcony was gold . We had complimentary breakfast this is your usual toast , fruit and cornflakes sort of buffet , all you need to get started. We had a couple of lunches and dinners in the restaurant and found the food to be very good .the housekeeping and reception staff were friendly and useful , but the restaurant staff were quite slow,uninterested and "dis engaged" with their jobs.the beach is ok , snorkeling can be challenging due to the low water level , at high tide it was very rough with currents. It is well located near some great restaurants .All in all this hotel is great value for money , if you want luxury then pay for it somewhere else, but when you are out exploring and diving all day it's perfect .

We thank you for posing your great comments while staying with us here at The Edgewater Resort & Spa. With the resort being situated on the western side of the island we get to enjoy the beautiful sunsets, and what a better view then from your beachfront deluxe room balcony. Our beachfront rooms are spacious and it is pleasing to hear the facilities were to your satisfaction including the housekeeping and front office staff. Our tropical breakfast is a highlight for many guests, enjoying the fresh fruits and variation of breads/cereals/beverages and condiments and a good way to start your day on Rarotonga. We will be sure to convey your comments to our F&B Manager regarding our staff, we thank you for your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to our tropical shores in the near future.

We had a wonderful time and would defiantly stay here again. They have everything you need, great food and cocktails.
Staff friendly and helpful, everything ran smoothly from checking in to checking out. Great price and buffet breakfast daily was bonus :) The sunset is amazing.

Thank you for your wonderful comments while staying with us here at The Edgewater Resort & Spa. It is fantastic to hear that your holiday with us was a memorable one. The location of the resort is on the western side of the island and so we get to endure the beautiful sunsets in the evenings and what better way to complete your day by having a tropical cocktail and watching the sunset right at the shores edge. We look forward to you returning to our shores in the near future.

Stayed her for 8 nights last week in a Garden Room with my nephew who was visiting the island. We were treated extremely well and the staff were just tremendous (shout out to the waitresses and Bobby on security). They remembered our names daily and actually on a couple of occasions went of their way to help. Granted the pace is slower but that's exactly why my wife sent me for a holiday to Raro! The rooms were clean and tidy. The amenities were fantastic for what we needed. The sunsets were amazing. I will definitely go back again as I think it's great value. My nephew Josh felt the same based on his experience.
