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.

My husband and I stayed at the Edgewater for the 4th time (we come every year). We even got married at the Edgewater last year. Absolutely amazing island but the Edgewater has really dropped their standards. Firstly we arrived and were told by the men outside that take people to their rooms that our room was only just past the...

The Edgewater Resort was amazing. It was my first time to Rarotonga and it surpassed my expectations. The staff are amazing from the Receptionist to the Restaurant Staff to the housekeepers. Such gorgeous people that just want to please. Gorgeous beach just a stones throw away. Food was amazing. The property does need some TLC but our room was great....

We ate the Spaghetti House and it was delicious. Great service and very clean. Reasonably priced as well. We could charge back to our room at the Edgewater resort. You do need to book though it gets very busy. The restaurant is not open for lunch.

So we stayed at the Edgewater in February, the rainy season. The room was average. No frills. Bed, small fridge, one chair, TV, counter, but no place to stash your bags or put your clothes. I used the ironing board to put the suitcase on so I didn't have to hassle with it on the floor open. The air conditioning...

We stayed at the Edgewater Resort & Spa which was an old property but the rooms were large with excellent air conditioning, bathroom amenities were adequate; the bed was comfortable & the tea & coffee we were very glad of especially after our "across island "walk! The staff at the hotel were so friendly & nothing was too much trouble....

I read a few reviews and thought the Edgewater wouldn't be as good as it was. I was pleasantly surprised! No, it's not 4 star, but I had a lagoon front room and was very satisfied. Roomy, great view and everything worked fine! Not the most modern but very clean. Simple and tasty breakfast, very friendly staff. Pool area a...
