Peter and Michelle have created a beautiful and comfortable home away from home. First and foremost, the staff were very friendly, extremely helpful, accommodating, and professional yet down-to-earth. Jessica and the front office staff helped make dinner and snorkeling reservations. Winston the bartender serves up yummy rum punch and great conversation. The grounds are clean and perfect for meanderings for families with small children. Pool is kept at the perfect temp and hot tub is clean. Our garden-view suite had plenty of space for 2. We met family after family who make Xanadu their home for annual vacations. The fact that there is no restaurant on site turned out to be a blessing as it got us out and about to meet more locals and eat a variety of super tasty local Belizean food. Location is south of the hubbub in San Pedro but close enough to the southern end for access to more restaurants. It was a great spot and we just couldn’t be happier.

This was me and my husband's third visit to San Pedro, bringing my sister and best friend to visit Belize for the first time. This was our first stay at Xanadu Island Resort. The resort is beautiful, small and quaint. Though small, we never felt we were overstepping on other families/vacationers. We stayed in the 3-bedroom ocean front suite which offered amazing views from the balcony. And the suite itself was spacious, comfortable and inviting. It had all the amenities to cook your own food if you wanted. We highly recommend making yourself a pot of coffee and sitting out to watch the sunrise: so relaxing and breath-taking! We can't say enough about the staff. The staff was truly amazing!! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and assisted us with booking excursions, reservations and taxi service. There was great communication with the staff from the moment we booked up until we checked out. This was one of the best stays and trips we have taken. We cannot wait to go back!

We spent four nights here in a three bedroom unit with our three kids (13,11,10) and worked well for us. The pool was great and the hot tub was really nice after a day in the reef. The beds were comfortable and the units fit our family well. We took out paddle boards and kayaks as well as rode bikes from the resort. The trees made it seem nice and private and away from everything even though it was easy access. Great location to do all the island things but removed enough to be private. Our boat (Mar Coast which I highly recommend) picked us up on the pier every morning. Staff were great in helping us make reservations and we set our golf cart up with them at a discount and the pickup and drop off was all with the front desk. They made things very easy and location was great.

My wife and I just spent a week at Xanadu for our honeymoon. We could not be happier with the experience. The customer service was the best I’ve had anywhere in the world. It’s perfectly located just south of the hustle and bustle of downtown, but still close enough to be a short distance to all the restaurants and activities. The rooms are clean and meticulously maintained and the staff basically become family by the end. If you’re lucky, Orlando will cut you down a coconut for a pina colada! Absolutely will be staying here again when we come back to San Pedro.

Another great trip at Xanadu. We came back for the ocean views from the porch, easy beach access, and accessibility to restaurants and town. Winston mentioned that the owners at Xanadu were one of the few businesses that supported their staff during the pandemic. Great to hear!

This trip was so special for our family. The pool was perfect for our kids (1 and 5) and the resort was relatively quiet. The staff was amazing, including Winston and Christina. The owner Peter was also very on top of the staff and involved in the upkeep. I will be staying here again! :)

We just left Xanadu Island Resort and had such an amazing time. The resort was well maintained, clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They assisted with securing a golf cart for our stay and with booking various adventures. I definitely recommend staying here and if we return to Belize would gladly return.

Xanadu is a fabulous gem of a resort tucked into the south end of downtown San Pedro. Super friendly and helpful staff made our stay really great. The large condo-style units were so nice for traveling as a family with teens. The pool area is awesome and the activities included at the resort are a nice bonus (kayaks, paddleboards, etc). We loved how small and cozy the resort felt amidst the hustle and bustle of town. Definitely recommend this place when you head to Belize!

I go to Belize almost ever year and been staying at Xanadu each time I’m in San Pedro, best resort, and reasonably, treated with great hospitality. I stayed in several different rooms, and enjoyed my stay in each. Will keep staying there and taking different friends and family as long as there’s room available. Took great pictures too, nice beach front, missed it in 2020 due to Covid.
