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...

Second time staying at the Edgewater over Christmas- such a nice place to stay with ample room for family, safe snorkelling and well located for island activities. Very welcoming staff and comfortable accommodation.

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,...

First the good: The staff was very helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean and visually pleasing, as was the room. The value of the room and prices on the resort are pretty fair, if not good.
