6 of us have just spent 8 days at this lovely resort. We arrived after a 12 hour flight delay and a night spent at the airport. Our villa was so welcoming. Airy, clean, cool and very well equipped for us to be self sufficient, if we wanted to be. We continued to enjoy the restaurant, facillities and friendly staff....

This was my first ever Island trip and I can honestly say it was love at first sight, smell, sound and experience.. Straight off the plane myself and my friend were treated like royalty.

We travelled in late Sept/ early Oct 2014 as a group of 8 adults and 6 kids aged 12 - 4. The Edgewater was perfect for what we needed - great safe lagoon for the kids (all able to snorkel here) and everyone enjoyed the pool. The resort was not too busy or over-run by kids even during the NZ...
