Stopped at this place for dinner with a friend, and asked for what the menu described as 'Prime steak cooked to your liking, served with mashed potato, or fries, finished with pepper or mushroom sauce". I asked for mine to be done medium to well done, with mashed potato and pepper sauce. What arrived was not exactly that, for starters,...

Edgewater is a great place to take the kids when you need a little break from the weather (sun or rain) and/or the beach (heaven forbid!!). Adults can sit in a fale pool-side and keep watch while the kids swim. There's a very short slide which keep them surprisingly busy. Quite a good kids menu and all of the food...

We stayed for 6 nights in late October, to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, having stayed there 10 years previously with our teenagers. It is the biggest resort in Rarotonga so you have to know that. It is well located in Arorangi with both the clockwise and anticlockwise bus calling in to reception so that you can get to whatever...

Edgewater is probably one of the better accommodation providers in Rarotonga and some things have improved with time. The food is really pretty good and since local staff were replaced by Fijians the service has improved a bit. But the whole process from check in to check out, including any payments for food and drink are clumsy and inflexible, clearly...

I went to Rarotonga for a wedding and was originally booked in to stay in a hostel, however, upon arrival I decided to spend more and stay in a resort. Since the wedding was being held at the Edgewater, it was a no brainer. Although the Edgewater was miles better than the hostel, there were a few things that they...

It is a rather big resort for Rarotonga, even a public bus has a stop by the reception, but if you are there to have an active holiday, it's the right place. A lot of entertaining offered by the resort: snorkelling tours, head garland making, coconut show, sarong making and much more! The guys at the activity hut are amazing,...
