“Most mismanaged resort on Cape Cod”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Great location but the manager has to go. The beach area would be their biggest attraction but it's a mess! The Worst section of beach from The Belmont to the Ocean house. Everybody else rakes and cleans their section of beach but not Edgewater.(I complained but nothing was done during the week I was there) There are a lot of employees that do a good job when given direction but a lot of them stand around and talk because of no direction. The housekeepers do a good job cleaning the rooms. The pool opens at 8:00 but no towels until 10:00? Every year there are some updates, (new grilles, new paint) If they can get a good manager it would be an excellent place to go. I posted a picture of the actual beach...

Used our timeshare week to book. Newly renovated with updated appliances. Right on the beach with two pools. Has a kitchenette with a burner but no oven. There are plenty of gas grills around the property to make dinner.

Only complaint is that the beach could have been raked up. The small shells were murder on the feet

We had no idea what this place would be like. We were completely blown away at this resort. No it doesn't have a ton of extras but what it does have is really nice. The 1 bed rooms are great! Very large living rooms with a fireplace looking right out on to the ocean. The bed rooms are well sized and appropriately on the parking lot side of the building.

The living rooms have sliding glass doors that allow you to walk right on to the lawn and then the beach or to your grill.

The room was extremely well kept and nothing was broken or run down. the pool is both in door and outdoor and kept very warm. There is also a nice hot tub. For a family this place is perfect!

Room Tip: As long as you are on the ground floor and in a 1 bed room in the main horse shoe shaped building I...

This is a nice, simple, clean place. One flat screen TV in the main room and a traditional TV in the bedroom. Plenty of grills and they are making many improvements. I would walk to the jetty every morning and watch a great sun rise and maybe some seals. Caught seven stripers one morning, some mornings one or two, some mornings none. The water is extremely clean. Quality restaurants very close.

Room Tip: We had room 218 closest to the jetty.

Had a one bedroom suite, clean and comfortable. Had a view of the water from the balcony, room had a small kitchen, 2 burner stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, refrigerator, flat screen TV and a gas fireplace. Nice New England beach, bring your fishing pole!! Plenty of gas grills and picnic tables, 2 pools, coin laundry and fitness center. Mid Cape, great location.

The Edgewater is a well located. Most rooms have some view of the ocean and the property is located directly on the ocean. Most units have a balcony or deck for you to enjoy. The grounds are well maintained as are the rooms. All rooms now have flat screen TVs. Our unit was small (rated to sleep 4). It was great for 2 or could work for a young family with small children. The room was to small for 4 adults. Additionally there is no storage for bags and luggage. There was an efficiency kitchen that was equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster and two burner stove. This was convenient for breakfast. The indoor and outdoor pools are a plus especially if you have children. Finally the beach is sandy and you can walk it for miles.
Some bad aspects of the Edgewater are the following:
A). you can hear everything in the adjacent rooms
B). Rooms located near the resorts main office hear every utility or delivery truck coming and going.
C). On Sunday morning (7:30 am) a contractor started working on the property pulling up an old flower bed and replacing it with brick. This demonstrates some level of disrespect to the guests staying at the resort.
D). It is only a resort by cape cod standards. It is a facility that was converted to timeshares. The resort does not offer the amenities found elsewhere in the US as a resort.
E). There is no onsite restaurants but plenty to choose from in the area.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and used it as a base to explore the Cape.

Had oceanfront suite - very clean, plenty of room including screened, tiled porch. We were happy with the location, plenty of parking. Friendly staff. WiFi $10 for the entire week. One glaring defect is that mgt neglected to pick up trash accumulated on dunes fronting the hotel - would take 10 minutes and create a much different impression.

Next door construction noise early a.m. the first day but subsided thereafter.

Room Tip: Suites 133-136 and 233-236 are oceanfront.
