My wife and I stayed at Xanadu for the second half of our recent vacation in Belize. We were very impressed with the staff's care and professionalism. From our booking to our arrival, communication was quick and informative. We were met at the water taxi terminal and reached Xanadu about 10 minutes later. Check-in was fast. The suite was comfortable, with nice amenities including a basin at the bottom of the stairs to wash off shoes or feet, an outdoor seating area with table, chairs, and hammock, and a comfortable indoor area. Access to the two bedrooms in our suite was by spiral staircase, which was fine for two active 50-somethings, but could be a problem for some visitors. The staff were helpful in booking a snorkel tour; otherwise, we made our own arrangements. The kitchen was well equipped, for the most part, but as is usually the case in vacation rentals, the knives were dull. I usually pack a small knife sharpener, but I forgot it this time. The resort has a pier with a swimming area marked off with buoys, and a pool. There's a bar, but it closes relatively early, which I appreciated—it's not a place for people who want to party all night. San Pedro can be noisy, with the constant putt-putt of gasoline-powered golf carts in the streets, but Xanadu, which is set back from the street, was very quiet. And it's possible to walk downtown along the beach, which is much calmer than the streets. At the entrance to the property, there's a very good takeout place, and there are two grocery stores within a few minutes' walk. I would definitely stay at Xanadu again on my next trip to Belize.

Hotel's Favourite
This resort is exactly what we were looking for! We spent 3 nights in a two-bedroom unit with our daughter. It was great space, strong AC, and a fabulous deck. The pool was perfect and our daughter loved wandering around the little paths and waterfalls. Staff was super friendly and we really couldn't have asked for more. Book your snorkeling trips through them because the guide they work with is amazing!

I have been to numerous locations in San Pedro and this is by far the most gorgeous, accommodating and customer-oriented place to stay. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to vacation. If someone has a complaint, then I don't know what they would be looking for. It's all here!!!!.... Location, beauty, accessibility, customer service (Thanks Winston)

Xanadu staff are very friendly and helpful! Their front desk took care of our reservation, and answered our questions quickly before-hand for planning. As an environmental scientist, I really appreciated that the resort fitted itself into the lush tropical landscape! It was not crowded or noisy and all the amenities were close by. Our suite was roomy, clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. I definitely recommend Xanadu for a relaxing and fun getaway! Jim J

XANADU 22+ Countries, Xanadu leads the way Small jungle like eco hotel with amazing employees and clean HOMELY FEELING type of a room. Check in was a breeze with a free drinks. Walter and Joel @ front office made it easy and recommended restaurants, places to go & to do. Do's & Don'ts while in Belize. I believe we met the owners who were very very humble. I once saw the owner @ tje beach helping with the clean up. The Room Its a home away from home. Spacious , clean, full residential fridge, kitchen with stove, dining table, kitchenware, coffe machine & a microwave. King 🛌, comfy and near freeze AC unit. The Sorrounding A quite pub with lots of option to choose. Ryan was awesome bar tender. Clean large pool surrounded by cocnut trees,.some with coconuts 🥥 already, but dont worry they take good care of the trees almost everyday. Ask front desk for food delivery book and phone numbers and recommendations of restaurants. An outside BBQ place on the beach, corn hole games. 3 tiki with lounge facing the ocean & lay down chairs. & thanks to the gentlemen who ensures there are cushions out there every 🌄.  And picks then up again evening. Some playfull dogs from the neighborhood will always stop to say hi and welcome you to XANADU while on the beach. Very cool. A dock with a designated area to swim in the ocean. Was very glad and happy to see the owners allow locals to come and swim freely with guest. We had a pleasant exchange with the locals.

We love the Xanadu Island Resort!! It is our oasis from the world, and our favorite place to come and reconnect with what is really important in life, just enjoying the moment in a beautiful setting , one with nature and the universe, and totally relaxed!! The people at Xanadu are really what make it so special & enjoyable !! Ingrid and Jesica at the front office are so sweet and helpful, arranging our daily excursions diving, snorkeling, massages, meal deliveries when we were too tired to go out, and advising places to eat and visit around town - They are the best!!! And Winston, the bartender, makes the "world's best" pina colada. He is the coolest dude on the island!!! Everyone there, from the pool and grounds crew to the cleaning services and all of the customer services staff and management, worked hard to make our vacation one we'll remember for a lifetime!! It's all of the small but very thoughtful niceties they gave throughout our weeklong stay that make us appreciate how fortunate we are to get to know them and share their love for life and humanity. They say it is the slow season in September, but the weather was perfect, the people of Belize were super friendly, and every place we visited was not crowded and very accommodating!! Please plan a visit soon, as you will love this place as much as we do, I promise!!! Steve & Kay Parker visited 09/18 - 09/25, 2023

An amazing place conscious of the earth that provides a thoughtful and complete service. Every need on our list was met and then some. Conveniently located close enough to many activities but yet nestled back in a forest setting that makes you feel like miles away with a beachfront. The surroundings and beauty of this place really make you feel like a trip back into a rainforest. Growth around the buildings is spectacular lending to a layout that mixes natural beauty and building stricture to blend as one. The grounds are well kept daily with a landscape crew who keeps a good eye on all details. Every last aspect of our accommodations and trip activities was well communicated, and all needs were taken care of. The staff is so friendly and kind to say hello and simply make you feel at home. Jessica went to great lengths to ensure our activities and local transfers went through as planned with some of the best tour operators who treated us with days filled with enjoyable moments. The sea view 1 bedroom loft room was perfect. The deck view is just right for watching waters and sunrises but also for good evening rest to enjoy your night sea breeze. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. Would highly recommend ito family and friends as we hope to visit again real soon.

This was out 10th trip to San Pedro. We typically have a ‘go to’ resort we love, but it was closed for maintenance. So we tried Xanadu. The staff was so friendly. A member of our party got sick and the staff helped to arrange a visit to the doctor. The staff made great recommendations for dining. They were amazing. The facility was charming with the tropical jungle feel. Make sure you take mosquito spray, LOL. We loved the private dock and swimming area. We had a beach front room. The rooms were great, clean and spacious. The security light shines directly in our room. Nothing that a little infinity couldn’t fix. Downside…..Wi-Fi was sketchy (in and out). Doesn’t seem to be a lot of communication between staff. Tropic Air in Belize City had to call Xanadu about our flight reservation. Not within walking distance from downtown (many places we like to visit). Lack of a restaurant was inconvenient, but we did experience some different businesses we hadn’t been to. So overall it was a great choice and we did have a good time.

Our group of 3 ladies had 4 nights at Xanadu and had a fabulous time! We had a 2 bedroom beach view room, which was very spacious and had a great wide balcony. We were picked up at the water taxi and had an easy check in process along with a welcome drink. We had reserved a golf cart for the next day so we walked to the Garifuna restaurant for dinner. It was delicious! We had dives with Belize Pro Dive Center- a quick walk away ( great dive at Hol Chan!). It was great to relax in the pool and the swim area at the end of the dock was quite large. We enjoyed having the golf cart- was waiting at the resort ready for us- pick up and drop off is right in the parking lot at Xanadu. We drove up to Secret Beach and liked seeing the north part of the island. We were there during the slow season so Secret Beach wasn’t crazy but I can imagine what it would be like at other times! Had Joel arrange for a snorkel trip our last day with Lil Alphonse. He was great! We went to Mexico Rocks and Tres Cocos and Alphonse was a fabulous, enthusiastic guide! The staff at Xanadu were all fabulous! We enjoyed hanging out with bartender Winston and were happy with Walter and Joel’s assistance in the office. Orlando was super nice too! Xanadu is a great size. There is no on site restaurant but there are options nearby and you are not too far from the downtown. The bar isn’t open late but we enjoyed hanging out (had some Belikins in the fridge to drink later while on our balcony) We all loved our time at Xanadu and will stay here again on our next trip to San Pedro!

I really lucked out finding this resort. The staff was so knowledgeable about the island and so kind. My sister and I got to spend a wonderful 6 days at Xanadu, celebrating my birthday. The view was beautiful, the pool was heated and the atmosphere was serene. The staff had the best recommendations and really took good care of us. Can’t wait to return!
