Location was great amenities great, the fijian house keeper was beautiful. Loved my lagoon room in Aitutaki block. Tiles around the paths slippery when wet but everything else great. The clockwise and anticlockwise buses all go right in to resort to pick up and drop off. I've ticked that I stayed in November as that was the bulk of my...

Just returned from 10 great days at the Edgewater on our first visit to Rarotonga. Things didn’t start off too well when my wife (who had a hip problem) and I (both in our very late 70’s) arrived at about 10.45pm and were taken up 3 flights of steps to the top floor of the PukaPuka block of beachfront suites,...

My fired and I stayed here for five nights in a garden room. Our room was fine but we could hear the group in the next room. AC was excellent. Bathroom nice but our studio needed some art or a mirror in the main room. Lovely balcony. Good snorkeling but shallow unless around high tide. This is definitely more of...

First time to Raro and travel agent booked us in here. Read many reviews about Edgewater before we arrived and they all varied so didn't really know what to expect. Loved it the moment we got here, super friendly staff, basic room but everything we needed it was clean and fresh. The grounds were immaculate, with staff constantly sweeting hosing...

We returned to the Edgewater with our adult children and grandchildren. Renting a 3 bedroom 'home away from home' villa for our children and a beachfront unit for ourselves. This was a fabulous holiday - the unit had food and provisions for a day or 2 which was very welcome. We also took advantage of the kids club for the...

Great place to stay. Close to town, bus comes to reception every hour and will take you into town or around the island. The rooms are clean, beds a bit too soft and bouncey for our liking. The food at the restaurant is yum, especially the raw fish. Culture night is well worth it, the entertainment and buffet, couldn't fault...
