Had this opportunity to travel to beautiful Cook Islands in December 2013. Stayed for 7 nights at this hotel and had an awesome experience. 10 minutes away from airport and located right at the beach with crystal clear transparent water touching your feet. Very large premises, rooms are very well presented and had onsite dinning facilities and activities complimenting the...

We came to the Edgewater to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary with the kids, renew our wedding vows, and celebrate our youngest boy's 10th birthday! The Edgewater was a great spot for us. Being there in the quieter season we were upgraded to a beachfront villa which gave us three bedrooms for the six of us, big living areas, a...

I had 5 nights, and it was lovely! Staff very very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and spacious. Food was nice, and evening specials were good! Only down side was a lack of space next to the pool, so right next to the person on the next lounger and no umberellas for the mid day heat! However, it is...

First time visiting Rarotonga. Staff were friendly and attentive. Room was adequate. Only hiccup when you put please do not disturb sign out, the people servicing the room would knock and proceed to open the door. Other wise facilities were great. Good to see security presence around the complex. Would stay there again. Lots of different activities for people to...

Great Resort for us. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly. Enjoyable activities every day. Loved the tropical breakfasts. Easy to book attractions and cars.

My partner and I were unimpressed with the 5 nights we stayed here. The general feeling was of a tourist accommodation factory. No porters helped with our luggage,room was basic with a nice glass basin and good shower however I found the decor dated and tatty. I was unhappy to stay in a room with mouldy curtains.

The Edgewater was a fantastic resort. Light airy and clean. The staff were all really lovely and constantly cleaning not only the rooms but also around the resort. I was also impressed that the acting GM was constantly wandering around the resort yet he looked like one of the guests. It has a great restaurant and bar on site,plus car...

We had an amazing time at The Edgewater! With restaurants and a bar on site we barely ate anywhere else. If you're there on a pub crawl night...do it!!! Great hosts and heaps of fun. Next time we'd definitely pay the extra for a beach front villa though, much nicer and bigger space than the garden villas.
