Xanadu or White Sands Rock?

Xanadu or White Sands Rock? - 01/17/07 01:56 AM

My wife and I are treating my parents to a well deserved vacation in May. We have done a lot of research and wanted some opinions on accomodations. We are a group of 4, don't want to be too far away from the action, but will be renting a golf cart for the week to get around. We would like a condo or house....want something clean and nice.....and want to spend $300 or less a night if possible. We were thinking Xanadu or White Sands Rock but would be open to any suggestions. We will be arriving May 25th and staying for 7 nights.

Either is a beautiful property. You might also consider the Palms. They are closer to town, have 2/2 condos, and clean and in your price range.

When you say White Sands Rocks do you mean White Sands Cove or Mata Rocks?

I LOVE White sands cove, it is beautiful, peaceful and the resort is so friendly.

Xanadu is a much easier ride to town. Great accommodations too.

My wife and I stayed at Xanadu this past Thanksgiving week. I don't think you could do much better. The Staff is the best, and they are very very helpfull with whatever you might need to make your stay enjoyable. They will even arrange to have a golf cart available for you when you arrive. They pay for the transortation from and to the Airport. The resort is beautiful and the grounds immaculate. The rooms are clean and very roomy. You are only 1.5 miles from the center of town.

My wife and I will be back there the first full week this coming May.

White Sands Cove is not far at all from town! It is one of the first stops north. I just walked past there the other day from Boca Del Rio area and took no time. It is beautiful and in my opinion much more private than Xanadu. The condos are much nicer as well.
Beach is better, pool is better, onsite bar.

I also think the resort owners are run the place fantastic, some of the kindest owners on the island.

The staff and management of Xanadu are second to none, and the grounds and rooms are immaculate. Plus, you have a well stocked convienience store right next door should you need anything during your stay.

Poopingturtle, I'm not sure what White Sands Cove offers, but Xanadu has free use of bicycles and kayaks, a nice pool and central airconditioning. I have not stayed at the Palms, but it's much closer to town and may suit you very well also.

Good luck!

yep, they offer same and have a dive shop. I'd say white sands is about 10 min further walk from town, just walked to captain morgans and passed it on Sunday.
