We stayed five nights at Xanadu during the Thanksgiving holiday week. The staff were incredible, as others have written. Special thanks to Franz, David, Kenny and Orlando! We checked in and were helped to our unit. I spent many hours in the hammock on the porch, under the palapa by the water or wandering the property looking at the beautiful... More

We stayed for a week to attend a wedding. This is an excellent small resort that lacks the crowds, but has all of the amenities and great staff. You could request anything at the desk and it would be quickly accomodated, from snorkeling trips to laundry. The pool and beach area are lovely and there are plenty of animals. We... More

The rooms are clean, quiet, spacious and comfortable and the grounds kept beautifully. All the staff are friendly and accommodating and ensure you have everything you need for a great stay.

We were in Xanadu from August 18 to 24, 2016. Celebrated my 50th birthday there! It was my hubby, my 19 yr old son and I. We had a wonderful time! We stayed in the first floor 2 bedroom unit next to an empty lot. There is no restaurant but I prefer that as you don't have other people coming... More

No, friends, I'm not talking about running from the law! I'm talking about my new life as a married man! This quaint resort on beautiful Ambergris Caye is where I married Mrs. Winston, and its Xanadu's size that made it the perfect host for our small wedding. This is not a faceless corporately owned resort like a cruise ship run... More

Unique, Boutique, Romantic and Eco-friendly! Imagine tranquility settling over you like a mist over the ocean; kick off your shoes and stroll amongst the natural vegetation past the water features and onto the beach. 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. Experience all this at the unique, boutique, Green Globe certified Xanadu Island Resort – a touch of luxury and romance in harmony with nature. ... more   less
