Relaxing at the pure luxury of Xanadu Resort in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.

The Xanadu Resort in San Pedro Belize is paradise.  It was voted the best hotel in Belize for the last 4 years on Trip Advisor.

The wow factor - Xanadu Island Resort.

Xanadu Island Resort is situated on the island of Ambergris Caye, in the town of San Pedro, in Belize. San Pedro can be reached by ferry from either Chetumal in Mexico or Caye Caulker/Belize City in Belize. Once you get to San Pedro, get a taxi to Xanadu – the taxi drivers will know it – a taxi should cost 10 Belize Dollars.

A few days of luxury at Xanadu and why it's worth the extra cash!

Xanadu has an instant paradise feel to it. Coconut palm trees line the entrance on approach, you walk across sand to the reception, there are views to crystal clear blue waters. They offer complimentary Kayak Rental as well as bikes.

After a few hot and sweaty bus and boat journeys, not to mention a few days of border crossings, we arrived at Xanadu resort. Instead of asking for passport details or money straight away, the question from the staff was “what drink would you like?!” and every guest is given a complimentary welcome drink.  You also have free unlimited use of snorkeling gear – you can do tours with Black Hawk (recommended) and Tsunami (not recommended).

In addition to the relaxing pool, you can lounge in the sun chairs and hammocks around the pool – free wifi is available and reaches the pool, a nice plus if you have work to do on vacation.
