We just returned from a week in Belize. My husband, my two sons (7 & 10yrs) and I spent the first half of the week in the jungle having amazing and somewhat rigorous adventures...then it was off to the beach for some R&R.
Our room at Xanadu (a two bedroom; two bathroom villa) was spacious, clean and luxurious. We were steps away from the wonderful pool and the sea. The staff was friendly and very helpful when it came to finding an appropriate snorkeling experience for my kids.
On Stace's recommendation, we ended up booking a private charter to Hol Chan Marine Reserve. I highly recommend this if you are an inexperienced snorkeler (both of my kids) or not a strong swimmer (my younger son wore a life vest around his waist and the guide held onto him by the strap the whole tiime as the current was quite strong). It worked out perfectly for us.
I liked the location of Xanadu as well. Town was an easy walk during daylight hours or a a short taxi ride away. There are also markets and restaurants just down the road (or beach).
I could easily have stayed a week...or more. Wish I was still there.More
