The resort looked cute online. However it is very old and outdated. It is very far from the city and have to rent a bike or go cart to go anywhere. My sheets made me itchy. There was a roach in my refrigerator. Also I stayed for 4 days and the AC didn’t work for 3 days!!! I was dying. Will not recommend

Beautiful and safe location. Easy golf cart drive to Secret Beach and San Pedro. Staff was very responsive and friendly. Onsite restaurant was lacking.

I think this is the best hotel in that region. The staff is great, all very helpful and nice. There could be more chairs for the pool and beach, but I am just being picky!!

Nice! Just be sure to budget for cart rental as the water taxi stops running around 10 pm.

Nice beach location, but seasonal seaweed detracted from experience.

The hotel is away from the noise of San Pedro town, which we loved. You can go to other properties for dinner but after all our activities of the day, we wound up eating dinner on the dock every night. The jerk chicken is wonderful!

I wanted to get out of this bad weather and in about 5 hours from take off from Atlanta, I was being taken care of, put on a small plane and water taxi to the X Tan Ha resort. It was delightful. I cannot stress the friendliness of the staff more. The room was perfect and the restaurant served very good food. Not extravagant, not over crowded, not ostentatious. Just what I needed.

Special place. Staff is kind and professional. Private and quiet with plenty of activity options.

We had a good experience. The staff was very helpful in getting our activities scheduled and the food at the restaraunt was excellent as was the restaraunt staff.

The hotel was CLEAN. I was very pleased with that. Everything, the room, the pool, even the beach was kept in top notch condition. Service was great and everyone friendly. We especially were impressed with the bartender, Elbin. I certainly will recommend the X'Tan Ha to friends and family. Also, Tough'Enuff is a great tour co. Ask for Scott if you go to the Myan sight. We had a great time!

Only 4 nights, but nice experience. Too Hot this time of year & mosquitos very bad at night, but otherwise it was lovely. Cabana was perfect & pools were small but very nice. The location is remote, but renting the golf cart made it fun to explore the city & rest of the area. The beach was gorgeous & the grounds as well. So quite & relaxing.

Everything about this trip was amazing. The staff to the restaurant employees made this a trip we want to take again and will stay here when we return.

Words cannot describe how at home the staff made me feel. The absolute best.

Ah, the good and the bad. The good--great rooms right on the beach. No problem finding chairs right outside my door and we were in and out of the rooms all day. Exceptional for those reasons. We had a birthday in our group and the hotel staff were terrific with a nice surprise and went out of their way to make a birthday cake, etc. All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Service, as with most such locales, can be a little slow at times, but all done with a willing attitude and a smile. Rooms are casual but quite comfortable. We had 2 rooms and the hotel made sure we were in connecting rooms. Beds are very comfortable, good kitchen space, porches with tables and hammocks. The only tv is in the bedroom, so not as conducive to watching movies as a group etc. The No Worries tours are great and we highly recommend the sunset cruise. Negatives: OMG the seaweed. I know it has been a rough season all over the Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico for sargassum, but this was a MAJOR detraction from the vacation. I have never seen so much seaweed wash up on a beach and hang in the water.Several feet thick.Not just at this hotel but all over Belize. X'Tan Ha actually tried and did better than other resorts we saw to remove the seaweed but it was an everyday struggle. Men raking and front loaders moving it away .This itself was a noisy distraction. All day long, virtually everyday. The seaweed made it unpleasant to go into the water, it stank and made the water brown. Not until the last day could we see almost all the water in front of the hotel. Again, I stress this is not the hotel's fault and they did a Herculean job in trying to keep the beach clear but it was impossible. The only time we went into the water was on snorkling trips. A major bummer when you have beachfront units and cannot go into the water at your front door. The restaurant was pretty good and offered a pretty good variety. Need a few more vegetarian offerings. No workout room etc. We never got to use the kayaks because the wind was always too strong or too something. Again a major disappointment. Despite the seaweed--which is a huge negative--we had a marvelous time. The hotel is pleasant and the staff very friendly.

we had a wonderful vacation. the hotel was very nice. we rode bikes on the beach every day. The only way to get to town was by water taxi, but it was fun.

I went to Belize for a wedding and loved the hotel, although it is far from downtown, the location is perfect for those looking to spend a few days relaxing and preferably a couple. The hotel is small and very cute, comfortable and clean, also I loved the bar over the beach. There are some activities for you to do on the beach and in the sea and the staff is very friendly, help you to book water taxis -the only way to move there- or whatever you need. The only flaw is its restaurant, to be a place that is virtually out of the way, you should have a restaurant with more variety and better food. The next morning I had to go into town and buy food to prepare in my room.

I cant begin to describe how amazing x'tan ha resort is. Pictures do not do this place justice and the whole staff is absolutely amazing. One of the best experiences I have ever had while traveling. I highly suggest going here and we will be going back this year

Beautiful surroundings, great beach (with awesome bar). And most comfortable rooms in beachfront villa I ever been to. All in all very enjoyable experience. Definitely would go to x'tanha again

Thanks for your review! For other travellers that may e reading here, our resort is located 7.2 miles north of San Pedro Town, the road north is paved until Mile 3.5 north. Another option for travelling into San Pedro Town is to take the public water taxi, the Coastal Xpress, which makes scheduled daily runs up and down the coast of the island from 5:30am-10:30pm.

Thanks for taking the time to share your review with us. We are truly sorry that your expectations were not met. Our resort is located 7 miles north of San Pedro Town and is a great choice for those looking to escape the hubbub and relax on one of the best beaches on the island. The seasonal Sargassum seaweed that comes to shore is unfortunately beyond our control and has affected the coast all the way up to Cancun, Mexico. What is under our control is to remove what does wash ashore as swiftly and efficiently as possible. You may have noticed our tireless grounds crew raking the beach throughout the day to keep our beach clear.
