Xanadu is one of the friendlier hotels we have visited. We spent 10 days there. The staff is really nice and very helpful. Special kudos go to Arlando - the all-around helper. He went out of his way to treat us like honored guests. He would pick fresh coconuts for my wife and was just plain helpful and friendly. The...

My husband and I just got back from a week's stay at Xanadu through Groupon. Being a Groupon we weren't sure what to expect but based on the TripAdvisor rating/reviews and other research I did on the resort and the island we felt comfortable with our choice. -And we were right! Xanadu exceeded our expectations. The staff was extremely nice...

We chose this hotel based on all of the lovely reviews on Trip Advisor, and boy, were they right! We travelled to Ambergis Caye (also AWESOME by the way) for the Thanksgiving holiday week, with our 5 month old son. From the moment we walked into the reception, beautiful Blanca took our baby in her arms and told us to...

My family and I just got back from San Pedro and our overall experience was wonderful. We could not have had a better time. The Xanadu staff took care of booking all the excursions we wanted and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The staff even called to confirm that we had been picked up by the tour...

Reluctant to write a review and give away a secret. An intimate little resort with very personal attention. Lodging very good. The staff - everyone of them - very helpful starting with arranging accommodations and travel to setting up all our excursions (and we did a lot) to just showing our young sons how to open a coconut. One of...

Best place to stay in San Pedro! We were welcomed "home" by all of the wonderful staff. We appreciated the fact that we could have a very quiet and isolated vacation (cook our own meals, our own private patio, excellent maps, wonderful suites, complimentary bicycles, kayaks,and snorkel gear) or we could access tours and adventures through the staff. Within walking/cycling/cart...

Overall our experience here was superb, with only a few minor hiccups for which I detracted a star (or dot). The resort was in a great location just far enough from town that if you wanted to walk could get there in 20 minutes or so, but we only attempted that via the beach during the day (they suggest streets...

I have nothing but good things to say about Xanadu. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was peaceful and enjoyable. It is a great property and just a bit out of downtown. I think the distance is a good thing. We did rent a golf cart to help us with that extra mobility.

This place is great. Just returned from my stay there Oct 11-20.The rooms are very well kept, clean, affordable with beautiful views of the ocean or the tropical jungal gardens. The staff are friendly, courteous, prompt and prefessional. Every morning I woke up to freshly raked sand paths and swept decks. Returning from a great day of outdoor activities I...
