Could cry looking at the photos; we had such a beautiful time at Xanadu Island. Got back 4 days ago.
We arrived to a complimentary upgrade - we got a suite bigger than the size of our flat back in London. The grounds are spotless, the scenery is stunning - the moon on the surrounding sea, the sun set over the mountains, sigh. There are hidden piers around the island offering further, beautiful views.
The pools are great, we preferred the archipelago pool as it was quieter - no one came to the pools til 10am, so no rush for a sunbead. Though we visited when it was 1/4 capacity, I believe. Great service from the team for drinks and snacks around the pool. Highly recommend the afternoon pizzas, they were delicious.
Food was good, bit repetitive especially if you’re vegetarian. Lots of salad choices, always rice, breads etc. Would recommend the Italian a la carte (mushroom risotto!), but not the Aegean. My partner enjoyed the bbq each night.
The reception staff were really lovely. When we asked about our transfer we were kindly posted a note the next day to confirm. Oh! Free laundry service! Amazing! I would have taken half the clothes, the service is *brilliant*. Rooms were always clean.
One major recommendation/request is about recycling - I found recycling bins on the beach, but only general bins are provided elsewhere. The number of disposable plastic bottles consumed is huge (bottles supplied are 33ml x 2 people = 140 bottles per holiday). So I would really welcome wider recycling facilities across the island.
Bowling was great, played darts. Cinema room looked cool.
This is definitely the nicest hotel we’ve visited, felt very premium. Thanks to the team for making our 7 days a joy.
