“Belizian eco comfort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Xanadu was a wonderful combination of jungle lodge environment and top notch service. The front desk arranged our flights from Belize City, found a six passenger golf cart for our group (upon our arrival, which was no small feat), and helped with SCUBA and restaurant reservations. San Pedro has a bustling ambience and Xanadu was a nice oasis of calm.

We went to Xanadu for the first half of our honeymoon, the staff and grounds were great! We stayed in one of the beach front rooms and had great views of the ocean front our room and deck! At first we were concerned that there was no onsite restaurant but this turned out to be a plus as there is a bunch of really good restaurants (reasonably priced) on the island and this gave us more of a reason to venture out. The staff at the resort are extremely friendly and very helpful. We would stay again"

The rooms are awesome. Loved having the super functionally stocked kitchens and the loft bedroom with ensuite. We stayed in room 2 and had the most fantastic panoramic views. Really ideal.

I feel terrible that it has taken me this long to post a review.
Xanadu was amazing.
From the welcome drink to the quite rooms everything is exactly the way it's pictured on their site. As a matter I fact I think they actually undersold it. The people were super friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. I mean these are people who clearly understand the concept of hospitality and want you to come back, and tell your friends. The night security guard even went to the market for me one night so that I wouldn't have to walk there alone, and then wouldn't even accept a tip. They hooked us up with a great dive group, snorkel trip, and even gave us a couple free hours on the golf cart because it rained and we were a bit paranoid to drive the thing in the rain.

The place is very very clean, and having our own outside patio was amazing. Bring a citronella candle or something like it so you don't get eaten alive while you sit on your patio having cocktails.
I also loved having our own kitchen because food on the island is a bit on the pricy side.

I recently saw a deal on Groupon for a week stay at Xanadu and I'm seriously upset that I've already used my vacation days for this year.

If you are going to Ambergris Caye you will not be disappointed by Xanadu. I wish I could get back there.
