This is the 3rd time we visited Xanadu Guest Villa. My wife and I come here for quality time, to relax and unwind.
The owners Albert and Tersia each time remembers us and this time upon our arrival immediately asked "how's the baby doing?" who we left at the grandparents - we are definitely not just a number like you would feel staying at a hotel.
The guest house décor is superb. We love the ambiance they create in the guest house by the décor and the soft background music that plays via an iPod.I have spent time reading other reviews and I am confused by the odd review where the guest complains about the decor... this is 5-star decor, what more to say? These people must have very strange taste, and even if it's not your taste, you can still appreciate it for what it is and not complain just because its not in line with your taste? My wife also mentioned that she wants music like that to be playing in our own house....
The views are spectacular. Ten steps down onto your "private" beach with complimentary beach towels, chair, umbrella and other beach toys.
Lovely breakfast - more than enough variety. You can choose to sit at the round table for 8 people and get to know other guests and exchange ideas for day trips in and around the area, or you can sit at the other two smaller tables if you are perhaps not in the mood to mingle. If you sit at the 8-seater and Albert/Tersia comes past, they will introduce you to the other guests if you haven't gotten to know then already, which is nice.
The rooms are exactly like to photos on the website - perfect.
Overall we remained extremely satisfied with our stay once again, and we will keep returning!
