Great location in walking distance to beach transport cafes shops. Extremely clean Resort both indoors & outdoors. Apartment was very good slight issue with shower head but nothing major. Room overlooked beach on southern side - middle apartments better. Very quiet & comfy beds. Will stay again.

We stayed for 7 nights on the 8th floor of the East tower in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was not one of the newly upgraded ones. The apartment was large, clean and very well set out. I like the idea of the two bedrooms being separated by the lounge, because it gave my wife and I some privacy... More

This complex has residences and rentals combined, it is not a true "hotel" as I think of them. It felt more like a timeshare building. You do get a nice apartment, complete with kitchen, living room and laundry. Your place is not regularly serviced so you are responsible to wash your towels, make your beds and on checkout have all... More

Xanadu promotes itself as “luxury accommodation with first class customer service” but unfortunately we don’t agree. They style themselves as if they are 5-star, but we think they are about 4-star. Here’s why: • We would have thought the beds would have been made and the linen changed every two or three days, but their policy is seven days. •... More

Hi Chris15570, thank you for writing a review about your stay on our TripAdvisor page. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations but that could be explained by the fact we are not a 5 star resort and never have been.

As the title states this was a holiday with ages ranging from 90 to a 15 month old toddler. We booked a total of 4 x 2 bed apartments - 3 for two weeks and 1 for our son-in-law's parents who came for 7 nights. All units were excellent, large, clean and well maintained. Outside pool and bar-b-que area, indoor... More

Hi Kassa5212 thank you for the very kind review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your family holiday. If I remember correctly you all stayed in the East Tower and recall helping out your parents with a TV remote control. I knowledge family holidays aren't very relaxing sometimes with logistics creating challenges but you folks seemed to enjoy yourselves anyway. Thanks... More
