Nice hotel, clean rooms, staff is very friendly and customer oriented. Only issue was the water pressure is low in the shower. Only downside was No hot tub. I would recommend to others, and would definitely come back. Overall a great customer experience.

We stay here several times a year for past 28 years. The staff is the best there is. The hotel is great and we always have a fun time. I cannot wait until next year when we go back again. We will be there in May June and September 2016. Hope to see you soon.

We have been staying this family run hotel for about 4 years now. We love the value we get for a ocean view 10 person condo. (only 3 in our family) It has everything we need and they also has the best ice cream shop down below. Really nice kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Love it.

We chose a first floor room right near the pool. There was a bit of traffic on our "balcony", as it was the walkway to the pool, other rooms and check-in.

We have been going to the Water's Edge for many years and I would never consider staying anywhere else. The rooms are spotless and the staff is incredible. The owners bend over backwards to accommodate any of your needs. They update every year. Definitely the #1 hotel!!!!
