We have stayed and dined at this property many times throughout the years and still keep going back. This resort has a combination on hotel and timeshare accommodations. The hotel is large with nicely appointed rooms in the main section and hotel style rooms in the attached section. The timeshare villas are spacious and exist all around the main building....

We took a family trip to the east coast and this was by far my favorite place that we stayed at. The views are just beautiful. While the hotel itself is old, the resort is just amazing! The grounds and the atmosphere are just refreshing. I sat and drank coffee on the veranda and felt like I was in a...

After reading several negative reviews on Facebook & Trip Advisor, we were a bit reluctant to eat @ the hotel restaurant & called around to several local eateries to find nothing open for Christmas dinner. Left with no choice,we gave it a try. Not only was the atmosphere completely breathtaking, all the staff was attentive & friendly, the food was...

I took two of my sisters and two of my nieces here to celebrate my birthday and it was so well worth it! We really relaxed and just hung out! The people that worked there were wonderful! The only negative was the pool had lots of kids but the advertising said it was the hotel's pool so I expected it....

Place was excellent. Located within 20 miles each way from our favorite stores. I would have given 5 stars except no wifi available (They said it was So So in our Condo). That needs addressing because we took this trip to relax and email friends and shop on line. We do 90% of our shopping on line to stay out...

This hotel aims at being a "resort and spa", but it is at a Holiday Inn level. There are places on the East Coast that are not Four Seasons style of luxury, but rather "old charm" with dated decor, etc. (for example, Mohonk and similar places in upstate NY), and I guess this is what Water's Edge tries to emulate....

An amazing atmosphere, with Xmas decorations everywhere. Beautiful and clean rooms, with quiet and such a cozy atmosphere. A staff as great as the spot visible in the dining room. The whole service is not cheap of course...but if you're looking for such a place, the cost is not the main feature you're worried about.

This place could be really great. Spectacular location right on Long Island Sound. Public areas are very nice. Bar was excellent; good pub food. Neat shops right there. Unfortunately, the sleeping rooms or at least the one I had (Room 315) had more of a three star or even less feel. Caulk around tub was moldy and stained. Porcelain was...

The best thing about Water's Edge is the locations. It's just what the name says it is, right on a hillside overlooking Long Island Sound. It's a sprawling, old-fashioned complex near Mystic, Old Seabrook and Essex Village as well as the sound, the Connecticut River, historic sites and a wildlife refuge. Our unit had a kitchen and living area with...

Beautiful grounds. We were visiting the area to reunite my 98 year old mother with her 90 year old sister. The room we reserved ended up being just a regular motel style room. There were 2 very soft queen beds, two very soft upholstered chairs, a tv and desk. The room was small and difficult for my mother, who walks...
