Our Air Nz flight was cancelled and we were given a free accommodation in the Edgewater Resorts until they sort out the issue. First thought when I opened the double bedroom was it looks dated and the floors were dirty. Found a dead tick lying on the floor and a yellow stain on the bed when I removed the covers (photos attached). I seriously felt so disgusted that I didn't get a good night's sleep thinking that our room was not cleaned or disinfected before we moved in. I couldn't comprehend why there was a yellow stain on the bed if they changed the covers!! The next morning we got a call that our flight will resume that day, which made me really happy. Had breakfast (c/o Air Nz) and was disappointed that you only get a selection of bread, muffins, cereals and fruits for $23!

My flight (JetStar) out of Rarotonga got cancelled. JetStar put me up in this hotel for 3-days. It was okay, despirate need of a face lift in many places throughout the site, just didn't have that 'wow' factor for me if you come along way for say a honeymoon.

Attended the Island Night tonight and was welcomed with unfriendly staff. The dancers and drummers were great but would have been better if we could hear it over the teenagers sitting behind us. They weren’t in the restaurant, so obviously weren’t part of the “island night” payers. They had pulled up chairs to the sliding doors we were directly in front of. They talked loudly, played videos and their own music throughout 80% of the show. The food was decent, however dessert ran out quickly and left nothing for those who had to wait. When paying our bill, not one person asked us how the experience was or thanked us for coming, in fact no words were uttered. I understand that you’re trying to get through a lot of transactions, I’ve worked hospitality, but this was horrendous. It

A group of 12 family members including myself stayed for a week at Edgewater over the 2019/2020 new years. My family have all been to Rarotonga many times but it was my first trip. Overall I would recommend this as a great place to stay, as it is close to the main town, has a fantastic beachfront location with a very nice and swimmable lagoon out front and good service. It is also quite reasonably priced so its great for those who aren’t completely budget conscious, but also don’t want to spend hundreds upon hundreds per night. I wouldn’t call it ‘luxury’ but I would certainly call it comfortable and cosy. I have drilled down to further details as per below if you need more information. Rooms We had booked 5 rooms amongst our group, 2 apartments and 3 hotel rooms. The

The resort is really well maintained, staff are very friendly and will go the extra mile for you. Everything is available that you would want; parking, pool towels, reef shoes, activities, themed dinners. It's a great place to relax and unwind. We were fortunate enough to catch tuna out on a fishing trip and the chef was kind enough to cook it for us, for a charge. The kitchen did a wonderful job and the tuna was cooked perfectly!!
