“Hospitable Staff, Exotic Environment”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

My school had their Christmas Lime at Xanadu. We spent half the day but did not want to leave. The environment is very clean and cozy. The management also have a few fruit trees that they use in preparing dishes. We had a blast, very hospitable staff at Xanadu.

My sister along with my mom and I stayed at Xanadu. I have to say it was wonderful. The room was very nice, clean. It had enough room for the three of us and the beds where clean and comfy. Bathroom, clean and spacious. The host was extremely hospitable and fun to get along with. He made us feel comfortable and safe. The area for parking was good, it's right in the gated compound so no need to worry about your car. The pool and surrounding area was well kept and clean. We even got homemade ice cream which was the sealing point for us, it took us by surprise and it tasted great. I would most definitely recommend this resort!

I stayed in Xanadu for the month of January while taking classes in Trinidad. I absolutely loved Xanadu the minute I walked in. Mr. Wayne, Xanadu's host, was extremely hospitable and kind, and he took the time to learn all the names of the fifteen people in my group within the first week. The rooms were very nice, and I really enjoyed the lounge room as well as the pool area. Mr. Wayne even hosted karaoke nights for my group, which were very fun, and I got to meet so many Trinidadians who were also invited. It wasn't long before Xanadu began to feel like "home" away from home, and if I ever go back to Trinidad I would not stay anywhere else!

Mr. Wayne and the Xanadu staff were so friendly and welcoming! I travelled with a group of 13 and within a week he knew all of our names and always asked us how we were doing and making sure we were comfortable. The place felt more like a home than a hotel. I definitely recommend the Xanadu resort!

This morning my co-worker and I came across a flyer from this resort. The flyer was so attractive we immediately called and arranged to do a site visit after lunch to see if they just had a good photographer or if it was that good...Based on our site visit, here is what I found...
Customer service was excellent
Bed linens were clean and soft to the touch
Bathrooms excellent...very clean...
No bugs, no dust, everything is clean guaranteed
The pool was very clean and clear also, and so was the general property
The rooms are cozy enough for two and for groups some rooms have the option to open their connecting doors... (Good for any group, couple or single to enjoy!)
I would definitely recommend this place...
Note: The only reason I did not give five stars is because I have not tasted their food yet...
For those living in Trinidad do a drive by, check it out for your self, family or your church as I did...worth the drive...
