Never see much mentioned on here about Xanadu and I had some apprension about booking it for our 30th anniversary trip, but we are sure glad we did.
It was one of the most comfortable, pleasant and well maintained places I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The rooms were comfortable, beautiful, spacious, clean, shady, breezy and private.
It was equipped with a complete kitchen with virtually new appliances. Full size stove and refrigerator (full of Belikins on arrival) coffee maker, toaster, microwave, blender, you name it. All except a dishwasher, but she came in around noon every day. Hot water was reliable, beds were comfortable, no bugs crawlin round. 24 hour security which I thought unnecessary.
A large 2nd floor deck, with table and chairs overlooked the ocean. Two full bathrooms were great. Satellite TV which we never turned on, phone we never used, DSL internet in the room. Heck I can't even get that at home!
Fabulous swimming pool, beautiful manicured grounds, nice pier and palapa. Banana and almond trees full of fruit. A market right up the lane. Convenient to town.
But the best part was the staff. Martin and Susan did everthing possible to make the stay perfect, and it was. They took care of booking all of our trips, calling us a cabs, getting a golf cart rental, etc. I'm sure they make a booking fee but the prices we paid through them were the same as if we had booked the trips ourselves, much more convenient and it elimated the problems of dealing with money on the water and in the wind.
There were no hidden fees and no surprises at checkout. The only thing I was surprised about was how reasonable the charges were for the services rendered.
Every day they would ask if all was well and every day our answer was "perfect in every respect." As hard as we thought about it, we could find nothing to fault. All in all, probably the best facility I have ever stayed at, anywhere.
We won (?) a free 7 night stay with the leaches at Capt. Morgans, but I went ahead and booked 2 more weeks at the Xanadu for next trip.
