I'm not sure what more things I can say that haven't been said about this Great resort! All the good stuff is true and more! It is located in the most perfect part of the island (just south of town, but not too far). The staff made it a wonderful stay, especially Orlando, we sure miss him! We stayed in... More

We had such a lovely relaxing time at the Xanadu. A special thanks to Orlando and Jamil for introducing us to the local flora and fauna and advising us the the great local food. We are going back next year and bringing more friends.

The buildings blend into the natural look of the oceanside. Kayak out, on complimentary kayaks, and as you come back in you will notice how well Xanadu blends into the island. The grounds themselves are gorgeous. Plants and trees labeled for identification, the pool blends into the landscape perfectly. The staff was as friendly as can be making this a... More

Our suite, #1 had a panoramic view of the beach and sea. The kitchen was so fully equipped. The staff could not have been more helpful. Tip!!! Don't overpack. You can go anywhere dressed casually...not casually elegant. The fishing and snorkeling, beach walks, people...so much fun. We also really liked San Pedro airport. It is charming with a lovely aquarium.... More

My husband and I stayed at Xanadu with our 2 year old son in January. We also brought our nanny so we got a two bedroom unit. The room was beautiful and quite spacious for the four of us!

We checked out the shops and had a nice lunch across from the San Pedro Church. On Sunday we took a cab into town and... More

Unique, Boutique, Romantic and Eco-friendly!

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.
