Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We had the best family vacation we have ever experienced at Edgwater Beach Resort. I highly recommend this property if you looking for a family getaway. We found a great deal on Groupon. If you book through the resort collection directly your stay includes admission to the Kids Adventure during the summer months. It included discounted restaurant purchases, Mr. surfs surf lessons, scuba lessons (in the lagoon pool), giant big screen poolside movie night, kids games and crafts. We met other families who rented through private owners and this amenity was not part of their stay. We rented a standard one bedroom, tower 3 room 409, that was fully updated and had plenty of room to accommodate our family of 4. Plus a washer/dryer! My kids can't stop talking about how much they LOVED their stay. Best vacation ever! Beats Disney World by far!

ewtre et ,eeyet: tsuAs the As the title says, we have mixed feelings about this resort. We are currently one day into a 5 night stay. We arrived last night after dark and were impressed by the security at the resort. It's gated with guards that operate the gates. Now this is more of an illusion of security since the guards that I have seen are either old, obese, or both. But that's cool, it probably deters some riffraff.The unit we are in (L-605) is pretty nice. Fully equipped with front loading washer and dryer, dishwasher, etc.
The building we are in is called Leeward and this is where the negative feelings begin. The exterior of the building is pretty dated and run down looking. It shares a smaller pool with its twin building the Windward. It looks to be in a similar condition. So, if you make reservations and expect to be overlooking their "Famous Lagoon Pool" you better talk to a real person and verify. If not, you may be disappointed as we were/are. Our unit has a recliner with a sharp piece of metal sticking out of its back about waist high. So if your Son is going behind the chair to plug in an iPad, he very likely will have a scratch on his tummy and a hole in his new Under Armour shirt.
We were at the little pool in between the two twin buildings and noticed a sign that read NO FOOD OR DRINKS IN POOL OR ON POOL DECK. Now what's up with this? No drinks while sitting in the chaise by the pool? That's crazy. We then took a hike over to the "Famous Lagoon Pool". As I expected finding a chaise is quite a task. As with a lot of resorts people stake their claim in the mornings and hog up all the chairs even though they are gone to the beach or wherever. We did find 2 chairs together even though there were 3 of us. We stayed a few minutes but pool was like ice. Gulf was warmer than pool even though I am almost positive I read the pool is heated. We then went back to the pool between the Leeward and Wimward buildings. There was another couple besides us there with 2 young girls. They were playing a radio at a very decent and tolerable level (even though not my favorite genre). A security dude showed up saying someone was complaining about the loud music! He just kinda blew it off because he heard how loud it was. But there was a dude on the balcony overlooking the pool 30 minutes earlier reading and I would speculate he was/is the whiny little baby that called the Po-Po. Hahaha
In summary: You can do a lot better for the money. Heck, you can do better for less money. I definitely won't return and if I could leave without losing so much money, I would go somewhere else for the next 4 nights.

We appreciate you taking the time to write this feedback. Yes, we are a gated resort with 24 hour security that is here to protect the safety of our guests and homeowners. I will address your concerns regarding the building with the Homeowner’s Association. The policy of the food and drink on the pool deck is actually Florida law. We hope you enjoy the rest of your time here and will return again soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Edgewater. The beach, pool and the rest of the grounds are amazing! We loved the pool!!!! The kids enjoyed the splash pad. The Oceans restaurant was very nice. Food was tasty and drinks were great! Service was excellent. The only thing that I would change is that I would upgrade the rooms and ensure that the blankets do not have stains. Our villa was clean and nicely furnished. One of our bedrooms and bathrooms looked as though it was recently upgraded but the master bedroom and bath along with the kitchen and living room appeared to be a bit outdated.

I really think this is a great resort. Some minor upgrades would make this a 3-4 star resort.

We enjoyed our time there.

Thank you for taking the time to write this nice review about your recent stay at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. We are so glad to hear about how much you enjoyed our amenities including our onsite restaurant, Oceans and of course our amazing pool deck. Each unit is owned individually and the furnishings are based on the owner’s desires, although they have to meet our standard to be a part of the onsite rental management program. We hope to see you and your family back at Edgewater again soon!

I first have to say that the overall rating would most definitely be a five had the rooms been in better shape. From stains on the carpet, furniture, walls, and ceiling to the moldy moist smells in the units, breezeways and elevators... there needs to be some cosmetic updates. I walked 3 separate units and each one was worse than the first. They did give me the opportunity to upgrade to a larger room for an additional fee but wasn't interested in spending more money than what worked out to be around $300 a night. There is a non-refundable and extremely large cleaning fee added to your overall bill so keep that in mind. On to the perks though, exceptional service, amenities, and location! The grounds inside the resort are meticulously kept and well thought out. The property was gorgeous! Security is forever present, yet not obnoxious. I felt very safe and that if there were to have been an incident, it would have been taken care of quickly. Their beachfront restaurant, Oceans, has great views of both the beach and their lagoon-style pool area. The food and drinks there are excellent as well. I highly recommend the fish tacos, and the fried grouper sandwich!

Room Tip: From what I understand, if you can upgrade to the deluxe 2 bedroom, do it. I just didn't budget...

There are many lovely units that would appeal to any type of traveler. We hope that you will try us again to experience a different room and take advantage of all we have to offer, including of course, the wonderful fish tacos at our onsite restaurant.

If you're looking for a half outdated hotel/resort then this would be the one for you. The two plus bedrooms are well furnished. I stayed in a one bedroom beachfront location with poor lighting, squeaky doors, a tiny bed, and a decent looking kitchen. I would know because I went to this resort chosen for a wedding destination. Don't forget the charge on the no refundable cleaning bill.

We got a deal on Groupon that we couldn't pass up. The condo we rented was awesome! It wasn't beach side but with a gulf course view, we didn't mind a short walk to the beach. The pool/beach access tags are $50 if you loose them, so be careful. The condo was fully furnished other than only 1 bar of soap for the two bathrooms and a couple trash bags with 2 pouches for the dishwasher for our 5 nights wasn't a big deal. We just went to the local walmart and got some supplies. The hotel was hosting a prom one of the nights we were there, so in the later evening there was lots of kids walking around the pool area. The resort had a shuttle to take you over the walking bridge to the pool entrance on the way and on the way back they would take you all the way to your condo. The beach was well maintained and we had lots of fun.

Room Tip: Watch for the specials and avoid spring break season!
