Had a wonderful if too short stay at Xanadu Island Resort. Stayed for 5 days, booked a 1 bedroom, was put into Unit #8 which is a huge 2 bedroom upstairs unit. Very clean, well appointed condo. Very impressed with the service @ Xanadu including the the towel art on our bed the first and last nights we were there....

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your upgrade to the two bedroom suite on the second level. It certainly does have a lovely view and is a spacious suite.

We had a small family reunion at Xanadu with five adults and two small children. It was the perfect location for our kids... the pool has a large shallow area that is perfect for them to play. The resort is small and intimate, so even from the farthest suites you can be out on the beach in about 1 minute....

Visiting Xanadu can be so exciting for children and adults who love to look for the little crabs, lizards and bigger iguanas. The bicycles and kayaks are also a lot of fun. We are happy your children enjoyed the pool and that you all had fun with us. Thank you for your review and do come again.

This place is wonderful, we love it. Everything and everyone is excellent. The resort is very jungle-like. They make you feel like you are not at a resort but really are on a secluded tropical retreat. Everyone is really nice too.

This place is incredible! We can not say enough wonderful things about Xanadu. We stayed at Xanadu for our honeymoon, and I could not envision a more perfect place. We stayed in the beach front loft (unit #2), which I highly recommend because sitting on the wrap around porch overlooking the sea was priceless and really completed the accommodation. The...

The staff was so very helpful, kind and knowledgeable. Orlando answered all my nature questions and offered tidbits of information on his own, which I really appreciated. The indoor staff also were excellent. Kudos to the builders who built around the trees instead of tearing them down. The domes are a great idea. I will be telling everyone I hear...

We had a great stay at Xanadu Island Resort. We were most impressed by the genuinely friendly staff. Everyone from the front desk to the maids to the grounds people were so helpful.

Great two bedroom condo with full kitchen. Full bath. Actually two bedrooms, a living area, full bath and full kitchen. Grocery store is next door. Buildings are domed to withstand hurricanes which it has. The pool overlooks the ocean and they had a nice ocean front location. No restaurant onsite. Good WiFi for free. Staff is very nice and accommodating....
