Xanadu Island Resort
Ranked #5 of 53 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2009

Xanadu is fare enough away from San Pedro Town for peace & quiet, yet close enough to walk. Blanca and the entire staff are amazing. - Mango Steve

Awesome, it has all been said here, as we experienced it, unrushed, perfect distance, close enough to walk to adventure, far enough to be private, the staff is stellar!

We went for a wedding and got so much more. The wedding went off without a stumble, thanks to Blanca and the bride. the snorkling was memorable, don't miss shark ray alley or the mexican rocks. The pool was a delight to lounge around and have drinks with friends. I was a little suprised by the cost of food, either in the grocery or the restaurants. So may good places to eat. Try the Hidden Treaasure. Get a golf cart you won't be sorry. It's just too hot to do much walking.

I helped my friend organize her 40 person wedding and we picked Xanadu as our both our hotel and ceremony location. I cannot say ENOUGH what a wonderful choice we made.

Personalized, warm, consistently top-notch Service. They knew every guest by name and face; they assisted with wedding planning; they confirmed all of our events; they were always friendly, helpful and courteous. They went the extra mile -- they even contacted me after I left an article in my room and mailed it back to me free of charge.

Value: In the off-season at least - Xanadu's is a steal! Each person paid ~$50 / night, which given the quality of the property, was a fantastic bargain.

The Apartments: HUGE, clean, unique. The kitchens were fully equipped, the A/C was perfect, the living rooms plush and comfy -- they even had flatscreens, iPod docks, dvd players, coffee makers, bleezers (frozen island drink)... everything! They put some coffee and water in the fridge waiting for you when you arrived.

The Pool & Beach: We nearly lived at the pool... it was lovely, perfect temperature, lined with palm trees. The beach was white sand beautiful with a pier and swimming area.

Activities: The front desk arranged all activities for us -- which were all fun and well done -- and we were picked up right at our dock for any outtings - super convenient!

The only thing to keep in mind is that there is no restaurant on site or a full bar. There is a cooler with cold drinks (including beer) that is open during the day. However, there were lots of great food / drink options nearby and we liked stocking our fridges and using the kitchen too.

Everyone loved the experience and we're already talking about a trip to Xanadu's for the first year anniversary.

Amazing staff. Guest service people were knowledgeable and friendly, even the grounds crew was cheerful and nice. Impeccably maintained and incredibly comfortable. Also, the tours that the staff helped us arrange were outstanding. The whole experience was far and away the most enjoyment and value I've ever gotten from a vacation or resort setting.

Thank you to everyone at Xanadu. We had an amazing experience and loved our stay.
Know when you go to Belize you cannot always swim right of the beach like in Mexico, Hawaii, or the Caribbean, this seemed to catch some folks by surprise during our stay.
The resort was great, we had service when we needed it and plenty of uninterrupted time.
We stayed in #2 and it was great, wonderful view, we stocked the kitchen with snacks and drinks and always had what we needed. South of town away from the craziness but close enough for a short golf cart or bike ride. Hey Barrington- we're still waiting to hear "Shout Belize" up here in Barrington, IL.

Stayed here for 4 nights in September. We were looking forward to it based on other reviews on this site as well as the Samantha Brown segment on the travel channel. We were not dissapointed !! The resort was beautiful, small, clean with the most helpful and friendly staff we have ever encountered. We had a loft suite which included a downstairs with kitchen, livingroom/bedroom and bath as well as a circular stairway leading to the upstairs kingsize bed and another bathroom. In addition we had a lovely balcony complete with hammock facing the ocean !! What more could you ask for?? Well, the beds were comfortable with great linens, kitchen was fully stocked and the pool was clean and surrounded with plenty of comfortable lounges. Honestly, the only thing missing was an on site bar but we quickly resolved that by purchasing our own supplies to make pina coladas !!
We did take the water taxi to San Pedro which took 1 1/4 hours from Belize City as we wanted to experience it - it was fast and fine. To get back we took the Tropic Air flight which only took 15 minutes and left us right in the airport for our flight home.
