We went to Ambergis Caye to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. There were 18 of us in our group. We were looking for a more intimate setting, rather than a large property hotel. Xanadu Island Resort was everything we could have hoped for and more. From the beginning planning stages until our departure everything was perfect. I communicated with Ingrid...

A family (adult children) special vacation couldn't have been more memorable! Our 2 bedroom, full kitchen, beach level/view suite couldn't have been better! We spent any down time on the patio enjoying the warm air and view, especially from the hammock and lounge chairs. Snorkel excursion to the breathtaking reef started/ended at the hotel's dock! Hotel staffing so very helpful...

The people are so kind and always available for anything that you need. The property is stunning, warm, interesting. They have resident pets that stay out of your way, but if you miss your fuzzy friends back home they're more than happy to let you pet them. The rooms are amazing. Right on the beach. We barely wanted to leave...

We have stayed in ocean front suite #10 for probably 6 times. Great place to sit on porch and be so close to the water. Love the outdoor bar that was put in not long ago. Clean, grounds spotless, nice staff. I haven't seen the new larger beach area I have heard about, but that would be a plus for...

First stop on our trip to Belize where we spent four nights and after travelling for almost a day, arriving at this resort made it worthwhile. Melanie Halliday who works on the front desk is a breath of fresh air and her enthusiasm and big smile is infectious. Room five has a fantastic ocean view, one word comes to mind:...

At check-in and throughout our stay at this beautiful resort, staff were very friendly, helpful and conscientious about their role in making our stay very enjoyable. They provided detailed information about our apartment, the resort, the immediate neighbourhood and shopping, plus the town of San Pedro. Our apartment was 2nd and 3rd floor of a building, with a large deck...

We spent six days at Xanadu (including a wedding) and were continually pleased with the service, amenities, and location. In particular, we got great service from our bartender (shout out to Alberto!) and the front desk staff, who went above and beyond to make the trip easy and memorable. Can not recommend the resort highly enough! It's a good blend...

We spent 8 great days at Xanadu. We picked this resort over many others we researched primarily based on the comments about customer service. The staff did not disappoint. Everyone we dealt with from the time we booked until the time we left were fantastic. They took care of every detail so we could relax and enjoy the vacation. We...

Xanadu is everything they advertise. It's a tiny property, but somehow has 50 different places to relax. The staff (Melanie, Franz and Alonso to name a few) knew our names, our room number and the drinks we like within hours. All activities can be arranged very last minute right from the office and most leave right from the Xanadu dock....
