We did a Mother-Daughter 3 night getaway before heading to the interior and found Xanadu via Trip Advisor and so glad we did. Stayed in the honeymoon suite #2 (last unit left) and it has the best location being ocean front second floor. Room very clean with living room, eating area, kitchen, and full bath on main and bedroom loft...

We spent 4 nights at the Xanadu Resort, and were thrilled with our experience in late June of 2013. We really enjoyed the natural flora, which was not bulldozed like so many of the resorts. this is Belize-we wanted it to look like Belize! we liked the amenities and the location the best, and we liked the bugs the least....

Beautiful well kept grounds, spacious suite with large veranda. Nice pool, beach and dock with swimming area. Staff was super friendly and very accommodating on rescheduling activities when we had some bad weather at the beginning of our trip. Would recommend for families or couples.

Don't let the throwback name deter you, this little condo resort is great! Four girls ranging from 35-70 years old stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, complete with a kitchen and living room. The thatched roof condo was cool and clean. The kitchen had everything! The heated pool, small beach and snorkel rental was perfect. There was a dock for...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Xanadu from June 20-24 and overall enjoyed our stay there. This was my 3rd trip to the island, and I have stayed at different resorts each time, and would probably stay somewhere new again next time, as I wasn't totally "WOW'ed" with my experience at Xanadu. We stayed in the Honeymoon ocean view suite...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that we were unable to 'wow' you. We have taken note of your comments and spoken to the housekeeper responsible for your suite. The buildings are monolithic domes which creates the interesting architectural style. Beaches on Ambergris Caye are small and because of the proximity to the reef the beaches also have...

This hotel was SO clean, authentic, and beautiful. The staff was very available and helpful, and the adventure tours that they offer are competitively priced compared to the tour companies along the beach, which usually isn't the case. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there, and we would definitely stay there again... those white, fluffy beds were so inviting...

Our group of 8 adults stayed at Xanadu in two different units. This was a return visit for 5 in our group to Xanadu. The resort is superb and the owners built the units around the natural setting preserving paradise. You feel part of the area staying there rather than viewing a postcard scene out a window.

Thank you for your positive review. Our setting amongst the trees certainly creates a tranquil feeling and without a restaurant and bar we are able to keep that tranquility for our guests.

My partner and I booked a 6 night stay at Xanadu Island in late May '13. The staff was extremely helpful and quick to respond to e-mail inquiries about activities around the island.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that you felt well cared for by our staff. Because we have the privilege of the barrier reef so close to us, it means that the beaches on the island have sea grass which is the reason so many resorts have long piers and cordoned off areas to swim.

We had a small family reunion at Xanadu with five adults and two small children. It was the perfect location for our kids... the pool has a large shallow area that is perfect for them to play. The resort is small and intimate, so even from the farthest suites you can be out on the beach in about 1 minute....

Visiting Xanadu can be so exciting for children and adults who love to look for the little crabs, lizards and bigger iguanas. The bicycles and kayaks are also a lot of fun. We are happy your children enjoyed the pool and that you all had fun with us. Thank you for your review and do come again.
