We'd stayed at Xanadu three years ago and were way overdue for a visit. It was SO nice to be back. THE SUITE: Our group booked the largest, three-bedroom/three-bathroom suite (#11), and it's quite spectacular. It almost felt like TOO much room (TONS of storage). The wrap-around deck with tables, chairs, hammock, is perfection for hanging out, and there's a...

We just got back from our stay at Xanadu 5/9-5/15/17. I was a bit nervous about planning a destination wedding from miles away in the U.S. and while I had been to San Pedro I had not been to Xanadu. However, my husband and I were so pleased with everything! The service, the rooms, the drinks! While there is not...

Beautiful property is a gorgeous little oasis from San Pedro. Close enough to ride bikes to town or a quick golf cart ride. Pool area and beach a perfectly groomed and gorgeous. The dock is the best I've seen in 3 weeks of traveling in Belize. Room was spacious with cool details (3 bedroom oceanfront). The view and wrap around...

We absolutely love this piece of heaven. We will be back every year! The staff is welcoming and everything was taken care of for us. The people here are so nice. We felt like family. Everyone came over and hugged us as we were leaving. This is our new spot in paradise!

Beautiful room with full kitchen just off the pool. The only thing lacking was food, but that was available by short walks to neighboring properties or longer walk or ride to town. The staff was excellent, booking excursions, answering questions and taking care of our room.

Thank you for your review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We don't have a restaurant on site because we are a Green Globe certified resort and we want to share our guests with the rest of the island and because we are a quiet and tranquil resort we don't want to have a lot of outside people...

We only write reviews when something is done extremely wrong or extraordinary right. In the case of Xanadu Island Resort, all things were done superbly. Not only are the pictures exactly what you will see, but more importantly to us, the staff always anticipated our needs and exceeded our expectations with a smile. We wanted 5-Star, but Xanadu gave us...

Last week, I stayed here with my family for 7 nights. I was not involved in the booking process however, after reading the emails back and forth of questions asked, Ingrid and the Xanadu team wasted no time in speedy, informative replies and thus began the friendly repour with my family. The rooms are absolutely incredible. Clean, well stocked with...

We visited Xanadu last week and had a lovely time! The resort is beautiful and the weather was great! The most impressive aspect of this place was the management and staff. What an amazing group of people - hospitable and accommodating! Plan to return with entire family again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unique, Boutique, Romantic and Eco-friendly! Imagine tranquility settling over you like a mist over the ocean; kick off your shoes and stroll amongst the natural vegetation past the water features and onto the beach. Breathe in the fresh ocean air as you wander down the long pier to relax on the sun loungers under the thatched palapa and gaze out over the barrier reef to the deep blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Settle in and experience the uniqueness of the monolithic dome buildings and enjoy the romantic setting of your private veranda. When you are ready to explore, visit the friendly staff at the front desk to arrange tours or to use the complimentary bicycles, paddle boards and kayaks. Experience all this at the unique, boutique, Green Globe certified Xanadu Island Resort – a touch of luxury and romance in harmony with nature. ... more   less
