I can't say enough good things about our 2-week stay at Xanadu! The beachfront property is beautifully situated within the island vegetation. This is a green friendly eco-minded resort and their efforts should be much appreciated. Our one bedroom suite was very comfortable. There was a winding staircase to the upstairs bedroom and bath. The bed was very comfortable. There...

Thank you for your very positive review and for telling others about all the things you enjoyed at Xanadu. We are very happy you had a great visit with us.

We arrived at Xanadu July 16 with no idea what to expect from Belize, or for our first family trip out of the U.S. We chose Xanadu for the reviews. Spent a little extra for a room with a view of the ocean. Our first day was rough as we tried to apply American expectations to a Belizian reality. But...

We are happy you found Xanadu to be a 'Great Place for Family of 5'. We really enjoy having happy children playing in the pool and around the grounds, using the small bicycles and getting to kayak in the beautiful waters in front of the resort. Visiting a foreign country provides the opportunity to experience different cultures and to go...

We just got back from spending a week at Xanadu. What a terrific place to stay. The location is ideal - about 3/4 mile south of town - so the resort is quiet, but you have access to a wide variety of dining options, and there are several grocery stores/markets nearby if you want to stock up your kitchen (although,...

We are grateful for your very positive review and want to thank you for taking the time to review us.

We absolutely loved this place. A great setting - you walk out if your bungalow onto white sand and have the arduous choice of pool or sea. It's the prefect combination of laid back yet with perfect service. Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I spent six days at Xanadu on our honeymoon. We stayed in Room 6, a second-story loft overlooking the pool and beach. The room was large and comfortable, we enjoyed having our own private hammock on our palapa. After spending a week in the jungles of the Cayo District, having air conditioning was a very nice change....

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days and it was awesome. A very beautiful place with comfortable luxury accommodations.

We are glad you mentioned our bird walk in your review. This wooden boardwalk leads bird watchers high up into the top of the trees where they can see and hear the birds especially in the early mornings and late evenings and then down again to the 'forest' floor for a short walk back through the trees - a very...

Beautiful and unique resort. Ideal location, just far enough from the hectic downtown, but close enough to walk or bike there. Book the snorkeling tour with Lil Alfonse, it was far andm away the best snorkeling trip we've been on. Other groups looked jealous and were trying to join our group. The resort staff was great. Very friendly and helpful....

Have you seen commercials for "Corona" beer, where you see a back of the chair, which faces a golden beach with a couple of coconut palms, crystal blue water under the perfect cloudless sky?

Nothing seemed to be a problem with the staff at Xanadu. The rooms were very comfortable - always clean. The beds may have been a little harder than we are used to, but everything was great.
