Our group had a wonderful week at Xanadu!! Stacey gave us excellent island tips and restaurant recommendations -- we never had less than an incredible meal! The pool was beautiful, and the view.....there isn't a bad view from anywhere at Xanadu!

Xanada was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make our stay the best. Their recommendations were wonderful, they booked everything, took complete care of you. Stacey, Susan, Martin and Alex were the best!!! If you asked for something, they picked up the phone immediately and handled it. I can't say enough about this place. You won't be disappointed if you stay here...

We had already booked our week vacation with another resort when I read reviews on this site and decided to change to Xanadu. And I am so happy I did. We traveled with another couple and we all agreed that Xanadu was perfect! From the arrangements beforehand and throughout our entire stay, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Many thanks to Susan, Stacey & Martin for everything they did. The suites were very nice, clean and well stocked with basics. The grounds were immaculate and, with the foliage, you didn't feel you were within a short walk to San Pedro but on your own private oasis. Our dive trips and our inland excursion were all arranged; we just had to show up! I have to mention Rico's restaurant just down the beach. The food was fantastic, the service meticulous and they had the very best margaritas on the island. I have to say that our stay at Xanadu made this one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had. We're already planning a return trip.

We lucked out and found Xanadu online. The entire staff was very friendly and extremely helpful on everything from restuarant recommendations to choosing guides for adventures. Every trip they booked for us was great. Susan, Stacey and Martin are great resources for everything on the island and always greet you with a smile. I would highly recommend staying at this place. Great location, but not in the middle of the city. Secluded grounds and quiet surrounding, but close enough to experience the city by a short bike trip, cab ride or nice walk down the beach. This place is great for a quiet stay that will allow you to easily access town. Again, highly recommend.

My wife and I, spent two weeks at the Xanadu Island Resort in April 2007 and it was exactly as advertised. We had an opportunity to compare other area resorts and found that we had several advantages, such as air conditioning; (the first two days it was 95F - 35C with high humidity), even the locals were complaining. We also had our own self contained kitchen with all the comforts of home. We bought our own fish at the market, steaks from the Sausage Factory up the road and cooked them at our own facilities. It was a nice change from going out for every meal like some visitors we met from other resorts. The grounds were kept by the staff in perfect condition, and there was night security, and a friendly and accommodating day staff. All our tours and travel arrangements were confirmed and any problems were quickly sorted out. Staying at the Xanadu Island Resort enhanced our vacation and holiday in San Pedro Belize. We would highly recommend it to you, as we are to our friends and co-workers.

Susan, Stacey, Ninja, Alex, Robert etc. etc...the entire staff were just wonderful. We were married at Xanadu and Susan arranged a perfect wedding. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is awesome, and the staff are the best. I would recommend Xanadu to anyone interested in coming to San Pedro. We looked at a number of resorts during our stay and Xanadu is by far and away the most peaceful and convenient. They don't have a bar. At first I thought this was going to be a drag but honestly it makes the place so much better - no stragglers. Buy your booze from the provisioning store or drop into one of the local bars nearby. It's like being in a secluded little resort in the middle of San Pedro (which is mighty hard to find). We walked to downtown nearly everynight and had a great time. And take Susan's advice on the tours. We took two of them and they were both better than anything else we found in Belize. After two weeks of touring The Cayo and Placencia we missed her tender, loving care. Enough? Stay here. Seriously.
