The staff at Xanadu is the best! Orlando especially ! We will come back! All the staff are friendly and will help you with everything from places to eat to things to do ! Ask Orlando to show you the crabs if you stay here! Right on the beach and close to grocery stores.

Thank you for letting other people know how friendly and helpful our staff are. They are genuinely kind people and enjoy interacting with you, our guests. Orlando certainly loves to show our guests the iguanas, land and hermit crabs and other little creatures that live on the property and to share his knowledge of the plants as well. Once again thank you for your kind words and please come visit us again!

I stayed in suite 19 with 3 friends for 10 days at the beginning on May 2013. The location is great - near 2 grocery stores so it's easy to shop an use the kitchen which is well stocked with all the pots, pans etc that you might need. The grounds are raked every morning so it's always clean, the pool is a nice size and temperature - and sometimes there are iguanas lounging by the pool with you! The staff was always super helpful and accommodating and everyone - from the cleaning ladies to the grounds keepers - were very friendly and would say hi or ask you how your stay was going.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Suite 2 in May 2013. The property is beautiful, and the view from our beachside deck/ balcony was amazing. We also loved the pool area. The entire resort was very quiet and peaceful (thanks in part to the fact that there is no on-site restaurant/ bar for people to gather late at night). The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful in arranging excursions and recommending local restaurants. It's a short walk up the beach to several good restaurants.

Room Tip: We felt that it was worth the extra money for a second-story beachside suite.

My husband and I stayed at Xanadu with another couple in Unit 1. The view was amazing. The staff went out of their way to assist us. Angie did a great job cleaning the suite everyday. Orlando was very eager to help and share information about the resort and San Pedro. We usually visit a new country every year and do not stay at the same place twice; however, we will be returning to Xanadu in the near future.

This is one tidy little place. The grounds get raked every morning, rental of the beach cruisers and sea kayaks are free. There's a great area in the pool where you can lay down and get some sun while right above the water. I would definitely come back again, what else can I say?

Thank you for your positive review. We do appreciate it. Sunshine and water are an integral part of any beach vacation and while we cannot take credit for the sunshine we are glad you enjoyed the heated fresh water swimming pool, the bicycles and kayaks. It is great to hear you would come back again and we look forward to your next visit.

This very cozy resort exceeded every expectation we had. From the clean rooms, quiet seclusion, the staff that is truly friendly, helpful and interested in making sure your stay is comfortable and fun. They genuinely care about their guests and the property. This place gets it right on every account: the property settings, room and property amenities and absolutely the best service possible. The resort has gorgeous views and very eco-friendly grounds. The resort is quit and conveniently located. Everything is either within walking distance or a 5 min ride to San Pedro. We would like to thank all the staff members there who made our stay delightful and perfect.

This is the place to stay....We live on the mainland of Belize, so we needed a place to stay when we took our daughter to San Pedro. Our cabana was gorgeous and spacious :) Every unit has a view of the ocean, on a clean stretch of beach. We reccommended Xanadu to friends visiting from the states who ended up extending their stay and swithching to another cabana that was available, so now we've seen three of the units and they were very unique yet equally delightful. The service and staff are outstanding....You've jusrt found the place to stay :) Enjoy Belize

Room Tip: I suggest a second story unit for the view and breeze...
