What are you looking for in price, proximity to town, features, etc?

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Many thoughts, but it depends what you want and what you want to pay for it. BYC is maybe 10 minutes' walk down the beach from town, Xanadu is maybe 7 minutes further. BYC is bigger and more of a "full service" hotel. There are lots of other good places as well.

Try the Exotic Caye Beach resort at They are running really good specials right now. 1/2 day cart rental, breakfasts each day, Crazy Canucks (beach bar on site), condo units for that morning or evening when you may want to cook for yourself.

As between Xanadu and the BYC, I'd say Xanadu by a big margin. Xanadu is owner operated and smaller.

Lan Sluder- what do you think about the accomodations at Xanadu. It didnt look as nice as Belize yacht club but it did look cool because of the cabanas.... We are just trying to have the most romantic week the most cost effective way!

Another place that is deceptively nice is Caribbean Suites, in its own bird sanctuary between BYC and Xanadu.

I think BYC is nicer but, I may be prejudice as we own a condo at BYC. We looked at Xanadu, the layout is better at BYC. You have a better view of the Caribbean from all units. They have a gaurd on duty all night for your safety. Not that you really need it. You can walk to & from town by road or beach even at night. It's closer to town. They just opened a new restuarant with a third floor bar. It has a view of both sides of the island, so you get a glimpse of the sunset over the lagoon. The grounds & gardens are well kept. There is a great gift shop across the street. Called something ORANGE.
or you can check out the BYC gift shop.
