Had a fantastic time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Edgewater Resort and Spa. The sunsets were magnificent. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The food was superb. Will definitely recommend it to friends and family, and will return soon.


A great relaxing holiday. Everything at the resort one could wish for.

We were very impressed with Edgewater. Even though we were in the older part of the complex the rooms were all very clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and nothing was a problem to them. There was plenty of entertainment if one so required which was suitable for all ages. The food was all very tasty and well presented and a good value. The gardens gave the resort a great tropical atmosphere.
