As a family with a 14 yo girl and 11 yo boy, our stay at Xanadu in San Pedro was the perfect balance of relaxation and exhilaration. We had time to read and lounge by the pool overlooking the beautiful water, and the kids swam with periodic checks on their electronic devices :) These relaxing periods were accented with excellent...

The staff at Xanadu is excellent. They are super friendly, dependable and knowledgable on all things Belize (places to eat, diving, excursions, ect). They made it easy for us to book our scuba dives. The staff alone is a great reason to stay at Xanadu. The resort is clean and the rooms are nice. They provide a 5 gallon water...

The staff at Xanadu are what make this place great. Friendly, accommodating, and very attentive. Accommodations - The a.c. worked great, shower had excellent pressure and bottled water was provided. The location is not too far from downtown San Pedro but far enough where you enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere. The 'beach area' was well raked and maintained, you can...

We had outstanding service from the time we arrived, until our departure.

Absolutely loved this place. Small, intimate with the feel of being in a jungle but in the heart of San Pedro within walking distance of great restaurants. All the staff at Xanafu were very friendly and helpful. After exploring Ambergris Caye and seeing all the other places, my family all agreed we had picked the best place.
