We had pretty much decided on Banana Beach but are wondering if it might be "busier" than we want...anyone have any comments on a comparison between BB and Xanadu? We are looking for a relatively quiet place but want to be within walking distance from town, and not north of the cut ... need units with kitchen, pool and nice ocean views.

I own a unit at Xanadu and love it. It's a little closer to town then BB. Units are fully appointed, my has TV in all rooms and full kitchens. I'm partial but, if it's in San Pedro, it's good!!!

Both places are great and have different personalities. Xanadu is small and quiet, all units are essentially beachfront, great condos, new & beautiful pool and excellent service from staff, including booking excursions. The condos were constructed for view, quietness and comfort. Owners live on the property and are involved in day to day operation. With no restaurant and bar, it is quieter than many places, but still close enough to town for easy access. Their bikes may be free, recommend you check with them. Bars and restaurants are nearby. No bad places to stay in San Pedro, it's just a matter of your lifestyle preferences. Happy trip!

Victoria,
I have stayed at Bananas,twice, once in August 2002 and December 2002/January 2003 and going back in May. I found Bananas to be pretty much laid back and quiet. I never found it to be to "busy",even the addition of the restaurant,lounge and travel shop,it just made it all more convinent.All there ocean front suites have kitchens, and a beautiful view of the ocean from all the suites.The beach area is very well maintained and the lounge chairs are very comfortable. Fresh beach towels daily. It is a 25 minute walk to town and they have two pools.The staff is beyond compare and the owner is pretty much always on the property.
