Everything about the place was perfect, we visited other hotels and agreed we where staying at the best place. the big let down was the service at Mal's bar and restaurant, we thought it was island time but all the other hotels we visited where on to it, but not the staff of the Edgewater. My son commented "who is on holiday us or the staff"
