“Great little operation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2005

Dived with Xanadu June 2005. Very happy with the dives, the crew, and the service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and took very good care of us. We are fairly low time divers with some experience. The diving was good, with visibilities around 60' and water temps in the 80's. The rental gear was in very good shape and we had no technical problems at all with it. The staff (esp. Ray) went out of their way to see that we were comfortable and enjoyed our experience. The dive sites were nice, and we saw a number of Carribean Reef Sharks, barracuda, sting rays, octopus, grouper, and innumerable reef fish of all colors and sizes. The "Theo's Wreck" dive is exceptional at 105'. I especially appreicated that the dive masters took thier time underwater and kept everyone from getting overexerted. Getting back on the dive boat was the only difficulty, in 3-4' seas on the open ocean, but the boats have good ladders and it just takes patience. We can't really reccomend the hotel, but the Dive Shop was great, and the highlight of the visit.

“You have to try the Shark feeding dive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2004

We arrived at Xanadu took a training course so that we could go diving.
The insturctor was great and taught us everything that we needed to know. We went diving after the course and had so much fun that we went on the shark dive later that day. The shark dive is a rush! You are down on the bottom of the ocean with sharks swimming all around you. I even got brushed up against by a couple of sharks. They videotape the shark dive so that you can prove to everyone that you did it. We got a DVD version which is extra but we had to prove we dived with the sharks. Just for anyone wondering, my girlfriend and I still have all of our hands and feet.

“Xanadu dive shop was wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2004

I just got certified at Xanadu, and am still smiling! The dives were great, and the staff friendly and helpful. It was a fantastic experience. The Xanadu resort is very quiet, and the beach is beautiful... I loved staying there, meditative mornings on a deserted beach; roll out of bed and you are at the dive shop. However... other hotels bus in to use the beach so it gets crowded later; and there is no night life, just a handful of people at the bar or restaurant.
Downtown action, lots of hotels and the casino are not too far, just a couple of miles away, and they'll pick you up for dives.
