TiredPosted Nov 20, 2015
Pros: Location was great. Had a good restaurant attached to the resort (Spaghetti House). Vehicle hire available at the hotel at good prices.
Cons: Cleanliness of rooms. Introduction to hotel and facilities was limited and not complete. Air conditioning units. Beds were not comfortable.
Location: Location good, small island so can not be far from everything. Right on beach, views great. Restaurants close by. Not far from town center.
Reservation not recognized at reception so took half an hour to check in, room did not have bed for our daughter even though we had booked for 3 people. Had with pool issue, faces in pool one day and action to remedy when we reported it was slow and inadequate, then we were snubbed by staff for pointing it out to them. Air conditioning unit so old and loud we couldn't use it when sleeping. We locked key in room one day and when asked for another no security questions asked before giving us a new one, we could have been anybody asking for a key for any room. Resort large and impersonal.

Good value budget accommodation. Great activities and snorkelling. Very noisy, not very soundproof walls!

Awesome family friendly resortPosted Oct 12, 2015
Pros: The staff, the activities club, the gardens, the restaurant - everything was awesome!!
Cons: The rooms probably could do with a makeover but we weren't fussed, they were still clean and had everything we needed.
Location: his side of the island was less windy than the Muri side when we were there. Great restaurants nearby, bus stops at the resort.
I was nervous about booking here due to all the reviews of the rooms being tired but needn't have worried. My partner and myself and our 5 month old baby stayed in a Superior Garden Room and it was more than enough to suit our needs, clean and with a nice balcony to sit and look out over the gardens. The room was simply and perhaps a little old but I felt the price of the resort reflected a more simple room type and was therefore very satisfied. The housekeeping came in everyday and tidied our room with fresh towels and linen, we felt like we couldn't have had better service. The real selling point for the Edgewater is the activity club, beachfront bar area and staff. We ate at the resort three times for lunch and dinner and every morning for breakfast. The staff were super super accommodating, efficient and helpful. Pauline at Mal's bar would take our 5 month old while we ate dinner which really did help make our stay. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced - marlin steaks for $23 with delicious curry sauce was our favourite! The resort grounds are stunning, well manicured and very well looked after. We will definitely be returning, the resort looks perfect for older children, families and groups. We may also have our wedding here as the wedding they had while we were there was absolutely beautiful. All in all, if you want a lush room that you will sit in the entire time then don't stay here. But if you want a fantastic resort experience with awesome activities

良くも悪くもPosted Sep 12, 2015
Cons: シャワーの水圧が弱い。 朝食をもっと充実させてほしい。
すべてにおいて問題ないレベルではある。 朝食はパンとシリアルとフルーツだけ。もう少し種類があるとよい。 プールは基本的に子供専用。大人で入っている人はいなかった。 ビーチもムリビーチに比べるとやはり物足りない。

Great place to holiday with your family!Posted Aug 30, 2015
Pros: I liked that, there was always something to do, the kids were never bored, it had a great vibe.
Cons: My only gripe, is the food. Its not bad, but it could do with a little flair on the side, it lacked that something ?.
Location: Well being that you can drive around the island in about 45 mins, there are lots of things to do. Ask, there are lots of people who know great spots.
My family and I had a great stay at Edgewater, the staff are amazing, especially with kids. My children spent alot of time in the pool, one of the staff noticed and gave me a plate of freshly cooked muffins to give to the kids when they had finished swimming. It is a friendly and entertaining place to stay, our villa was amazing, having a washing machine was awesome. I can't wait to come back.
