This was our second stay at Edgewater and enjoyed our break there once again. This time we stayed in a Garden Superior Room, which didn't have the same view as the Beachfront Deluxe we stayed in last time (!) but was still fine if you just want a cheap option. We like this resort and will be back! It is...

would stay at edgewater just for the view seeing whales swim past while enjoying a meal or cocktail or two was a holiday highlight. Sunsets were stunning. Ok the garden rooms were motel standard but adequate for sleeping.

We were lucky enough to stay here as part of a package for a week in a deluxe room, ground floor, with lagoon views. We were very very happy overall, the staff are lovely, the room a bit dated and tired in parts, but clean, light and airy. We loved the central location of Edgewater, handy to the airport, town...

Stayed in an older style Garden Room at the back of the resort. Room reasonably clean but found a screw driver and loose paper when settling in. Our room could definitely do with a makeover although it was okay for sleeping. Had to walk on a section of dirt path/road to get to the room. It rained one day, so...

We found Edgewater to be a fabulous value for money resort. We stayed in the beachfront deluxe rooms and loved it with the view and spacious rooms plus great bathroom.
