Great stay at the edgewater... upgraded to a beach villa on arrival which was 10m from the beautiful beach. Rooms were clean and tidy. air cinditioning and fans were perfect. Simple complimentary breakfasts of toast, cereal and fruits were well received. Activities were family friendly are easily accesible. Staff were super friendly! Tennis court a little tired but who cares!...

We loved the look of the Edgewater Resort and Spa but unfortunately the service was poor. Particularly the reception team and general room service (cleaning and linen was very inconsistent). It was rather disappointing and most requests no matter how small seemed to be an inconvenience. On the positive, we enjoyed the dining experiance and the activities hut was great.

This was our second time as extended family holidaying in Rarotonga at the Edgewater. This time we rented the three bedroom villas. these proved to be a perfect solution to needing space for families, small children,etc, but the luxury of being part of a resort

We came to the Edgewater Resort to attend a Wedding. The wedding was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. The Resort itself was comfortable but really in need of an upgrade. Our room was very tired (very clean though) and worn. The Televison was substandard and considering it was sky TV there were limited options with intermintent reception. The...

A good location situated on a good local bus route. Our room was spacious and clean. The pool is relatively small and could do with being upgraded and enlarged at some point. The sunbeds could also do with upgrading. The beach is lovely and sea swimming was good. The hotel grounds have nice gardens. The food at the restaurant was...

We love the cocktail hour at the Edgewater when cocktails cost only $10 - great value. The menu has a good selection to choose from, so we all tend to get something different and taste each others' drinks before deciding on a second round. The buffet dinner on Tuesdays and Saturdays is always a treat. Most things are labelled so...

The staff here are amazing. From the front desk moving our friends around to a bigger room to make their stay more comfortable to the wait staff in the restaurant making sure that the 15 month old kids got their food quickly. For such a busy place they really do know what service is.
