We stayed here in the 2nd week of July, to attend a family wedding. It was perfect as they provide a range of accomodation from garden view motel style rooms, to ocean view rooms that are a little bigger and then villas. The entire bridal party and family stayed at the resort which meant we could share meals together and...

My husband and I joined with some 50 other bowlers to travel to Cook Island on a Bowls trip. We had a ball! "Uplift Travel" organised it and did a fabulous job!

We visited the resort daily as we had friends staying and ate at the restaurant one evening and attended the island night on another occasion. The food was very good and Island night a very enjoyable evenings entertainment. It was good to see the younger members of the community so involved. The resort is certainly very central to eating out...

We went back to the Edgewater for Island Night during this holiday and had another fantastic night. The food was amazing and so good to be able to try the local foods. Show was fantastic and we had a great table up the front. Loved the cute little island girls who were learning the dances etc.

We (2 adults, 1 toddler, 1 baby) loved Edgewater so much on our last visit, we really couldn't justify going somewhere else - the familiarity with all the friendly staff, the fun Kid's Club and AMAZING food (especially on Island Nights) was too much to pass on. We stayed for 2+ weeks and had such a great time, this time...

Edgewater was in a beautiful location but the room was tired and the box style air con was so loud, rattling the hole wall. We arrived at around 1am and there was no access to food or drink, no mini bar, not even some biscuits to have with coffee or tea. The drink machine was not working in the foyer...
