“Hidden piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

My daughter and I wanted to take a relaxing trip, we sure picked the right place with this gem. We chose the Tropic Ferry to pick us up at the Belize airport and escort us to our resort. They originally appeared to be more expensive but after factoring in a separate flight to the island, cabs and local ferry expenses this was actually less expensive, less time and so much nicer. We found them waiting outside the airport and made the trip easy, fun and educational, we were so happy we used them. They were professional and helpful. We will use them again when we return. We were dropped off at the dock of our resort and quickly knew we had found a little peace in heaven we both desired. The pristine white beach, crystal blue water and colorful rooms were so inviting. We were quickly given a tour by the wonderful staff and unloaded our luggage in our room. The rooms have the tropical feel that takes your stress and the wonderful warm breeze blows it out to the blue. We took a golf cart into town to do some shopping. The roads were a little rough but we had great fun. San Pedro was full of friendly people and plenty of unique local items that kept us busy and happy. The art store was full of local painter’s beautiful works. We returned to San Pedro several times and each time was wonderful. We also used the local ferry to go wherever we wanted to adventure. Scuba diving was also on our list of things to do. We tried the local White Sands and were pleasantly surprised with all the stunning wildlife we saw, sharks, eels, turtles and plenty of fish. The trip was well rounded with a fun crew that even put my fish fearing daughter at ease. Back at the resort we enjoyed the free water activities, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boating and much more. The beach bar was a nice place to grab a cool drink with some great people. The restaurant was nice with great food. The weather was spectacular and the stars at night were stunning. Our room was very comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen where we prepared a few meals. Everything we needed was there and the attentive staff made sure things were perfect making our trip so carefree. We loved the pool and just lounging on the beach chairs. This topical paradise is off the beaten path and offers a hidden piece of heaven. We will be returning soon, can’t say enough about how wonderful it was.

Room Tip: White Sands for scuba diving or snorkeling, great people, nice variety of sites to visit. Tropic Fer...

We arrived at X'Tan Ha unaware the resort had recently re-opened. It has a great new coat of paint, some great colors and a nice seaside theme happening. We had a great experience with staff helping us to co-ordinate our arrival. We had arranged for a double-room that had a fold-out bed for a third person. There's a smallish kitchen that is very capable so make sure you bring supplies from town if you wish to self-cater. We had a problem with a horrible sulfur smell from the hot tap making it impossible for us to shower the first night. We also had a problem with the master bedroom fan that didn't work. We discovered this late that night, alerted staff who did what they could given the hour but returned first thing the next day to ensure both problems were corrected. And they were. The room has a television and an enormous bed.
The beachfront is nice and there's plenty of chairs to relax, or water sports equipment to take out, including paddle-boards (a nice touch). The pool is wonderfully clean, comfortable and a great temperature. The bar staff are great to chat to and the restaurant serves up some absolutely delicious (a little expensive) food. Staff during the day might be a tad over-attentive during the day for drinks around the pool but it's a minor complaint. Overall a lovely stay.

I was just here in January and so glad the resort has reopened. Our stay was wonderful and beyond expectations. Very relaxing, peaceful. The hotel is made up of condo style units with a kitchen, living room with a futon/bed, and a separate bedroom with king size bed. All rooms have a/c and flashlights are provided for wandering after dark.. Our front patio was very close to the beach, and this beach is beautiful! It is one of the few (if any) Belize resorts in which you can enter the water from the beach without having to wade through grasses. The hotel is a little ways from town (about 7 miles) but ia restaurant and bar are located onsite, The bar is right on the beach for lovely views day or night.. Amenities includes ocean kayaks, paddle boats, bicycles and sailboard (all at no cost). The bartender, Hill (sp), is a great bartender, making everything fresh (no pre-made mixers).... All staff is very friendly and want to make sure your vacation is enjoyable. If you want to get away and relax on a sandy beach, You'll love X'tan Ha.
