First trip to AC. Hard to chose a resort. Family of 4 incl 2 older teens. Pricing from Banyan = Xanadu plus golf cart / day. Both appear beautiful (as do a lot of places). Any first hand input?
Thanks for your time.

A month ago my wife & I were riding bikes south of town & went by Banyan Bay. On the way back it was very hot so we stopped & jumped in the water at their beach. It probably has one of the best beaches on AC. It is a beautiful place & is not far from town. I don't know the prices.

I have stayed at both and both places are very nice. Xanadu is a bit closer to town and does offer the free bikes, kayaks & canoes. Banyan has a great beach but to be fair, Xanadu just increased their beach area by quite a bit and put in a little "kayak marina" just off shore. Can't go wrong with either place, really. Banyan is a bit more full service with restaraunt & bar on site, none at Xanadu but several within walking distance. Banyan does have that awesome summer special going on though - rates are hard to beat if you are going in the summer! Another place I would consider is The Palms. Much closer to town than either of the others (good for the teens!) and has spacious 2 bedroom suites as well.

Not too sure how to add to these posts. Any help?
In case I get it at least partially right, thanks everyone for the input so far.

Last August our family of 4 stayed at Banyan Bay. We lucked out and got a ocean front room with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths (the 3rd was a loft bedroom w/ bath), so each kid had their own space. very woody - lots of mahagony. Can't remember the room # but it was in building H, 2nd floor.
