You can't go wrong staying at Xanadu. Everyone involved there is top-notch. Jamil and Ingrid were so helpful in getting any request taken care of, they had great suggestions as to where to eat, where to dive, who to book our trips with, golf cart rentals, sail boat rentals, everything. They have their own pier, pool and beach. It's a great place for couples, not rowdy and close to town. Perfect place, we got engaged there and will always remember it.

Recently we stayed at Xanadu we found the hotel clean, quiet and modern. All units have full kitchens and living areas. The grounds are nicely kept sitting right on the ocean overlooking the reef,while still being secluded. All of the staff was helpful and attentive. From Jamal to Orlando. We had happy hour on the beach using the gas grill to grill fresh fish almost every night with other guest joining in. Hotel was a delight to stay at. But it's the staff that sets Xanadu apart while not the cheapest , they pay attention to detail. The attention to detail clearly sets them apart.

Xanadu is first class and fun! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Jamal consistently exceeded our expectations in setting up tours, providing local information and making us feel at home. The guests were an eclectic group from all over the world that easily congregated for our self appointed happy hour at the BBQ palapa. The view was astounding. We did not see another hotel with our quality beach front and view which included a pier with Palapa and lounge chairs to relax at the end of it. The rooms were very clean and well stocked. The beds were comfortable. The bikes and golf carts were a nice amenity. I would take a bicycle each morning at 8am down to the pier by the soccer fields to pick up fresh fish. Martin, the manager, gave us a great recipe to saute and BBQ down by the pool. It was delicious. Mango's and Blue Water Grill had great dinner and seafood. Estel's is a must for breakfast. Rico's is a short walk south on the beach. They have the best salsa I have ever tasted - hot! The Rum punch is good too. The nightlife is a $5 US taxi ride into town. I recommend Frido's and Crazy Canuck's for happy hour. Wet Willies should be avoided on Wednesday's. Its "Ladies Night" which mean they charge men a cover. The crowd was a bit aggressive. Palapas is quite a ways north across the bridge. Jaguar's is good for dancing. It has intertubes you can sit in and the bar will lower drinks and food to you. BUT it is really really far. Take a golf cart or taxi. And note that taxis can't get across the bridge after 9pm. The bike ride was exhausting. The Sunset Bar and Grill is ideal. Arrive around 5:30pm and watch the sunset while they feed the tarpoons. The Tackle Box can also be a good place to hang out. We went on the zip line and Xuanatunich ruins tour. Gerson was our guide and was terrific. It was well worth the time and money. Gerson helped build the zip lines and was very knowledgeable. The tour was set up by Jamal and was excellent. There is no restaurant or pool bar, but the market is at the end of the drive to the left. It was not necessary to exchange money from US dollars. On Thursdays the Chicken Drop is fun. In all the people on the island were wonderful and friendly. I will definitely be coming back.

We travelled as a family (4 adults + 2 children) and we all loved it! The Condo/House had everything we could possibly need to have a vacation but still have a feel of home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-equiped, the verandah was spacious and offered a beautiful view of the blue Caribbean Sea, the overall space was just spotless. We especially liked the garden which gave a feel of the jungle with tall trees and cool shade.
Xanadu's Staff was incredibly helpful and very friendly. They have a way of making you feel like more than just a guest with thier warm smiles and friendly talk.
Some of the family went on tour but my husband & I felt very comfortable that we stayed on the couch to watch t.v. (this was how nice the house was - we didn't want to leave).

Room Tip: Just say what you are looking for.

My husband and I stayed in Xanadu last march during our honeymoon. We chose it due to the great comments in Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed at all.

Since the very beginning (reservation process) we found out that this was a very special resort as they answered to all our questions in a very friendly and efficient way. They arranged everything, including accommodation, flights (Tropic Air, highly recommended) and diving activities (Amigos del Mar are brilliant, and Diving Adventure), and we were delighted with everything.

Its location it’s simply perfect! 5 minutes driving from the airport and 15 minutes walking from San Pedro’s centre but out of the fuss and traffic noise. An oasis of tranquility but close to everything you may need (supermarket, restaurants, car renting, etc.). Inside, Xanadu is very nice and warm. It keeps the spirit of the island in its construction, the bird’s space, the pool and the condos. Our room (#17) was very nice decorated and full equipped, especially the kitchen, having anything you may need to cook. High speed Internet included!

And last but definitively not least, Xanadu’s staff is the best of all. Blanca, Jesús, Jamal… they are very helpful and take care of every little detail even before you may think of it. They fully understand the client needs and work very focused on that.
