“Paradise!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I will be going back to this place for life. Its exactly what I needed. A secluded getaway. Perfect to get rest and relax. Its far enough from everything to relax and let go, but also close enough to get to the major city to do things if you so desire. The closest major city (San Pedro) is about a 25 minute 10 dollar boat ride from the resort. Very convenient water taxis, they run every hour and are very punctual. The resort really gives you the true island feel. The rooms are really nice and cold. The staff at the facility are very friendly and comforting. I literally didn't have to do a thing. It was great, the bartender would even bring the drinks to me as I laid on the sand catching sun, Thank you Tony Macaroni!! Love this place, I miss it dearly. See you guys in April!

Room Tip: After you have your flight and room reserved, also reserve a water taxi with "Tropic Ferry"...

X'Tan Ha is a very nice, small resort that caters to its travelers. From the second we arrived (greeted with a fantastic Rum Punch drink) we felt welcomed and pampered. The rooms are very large with a full kitchen, sitting area, and awesome shower.

Room Tip: This Hotel only has 32 rooms so all are extremely good!

We spent 6 days at this resort and it was amazing. The staff went over and beyond to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and had everything we needed. They were very helpful with all info. I would highly recommend it and can't wait to go back.

I was just looking through my picture and remembering what a wonderful wedding, family vacation and honeymoon we had at X"tan ha in January. from Ester, the wedding planning and her team to Oliver and his staff, it was beautiful, relaxing and really fun. If you are looking for a place away from the rat race, a place to decompress, you will find it here. This is my second visit to this resort and it won't be be last. Thank you for making this and amazing experience for my small wedding party. It was truly special!

Room Tip: Beach front!!!!

X'tan Ha has the best beach, hands down, of any resort on the island. The staff is all very friendly and anxious to please. They are also happy to provide answers to any questions you have on how to get around, where to eat, what kind of tours you may want, etc.
The restaurant in the back of the resort had a good menu and the food was quite tasty. Service was slower than you are going to be used to if you are coming from the U.S. but the truth is you come here to slow down a bit anyway. So order a great drink and enjoy the rustle of the palm trees and the savory smell of the ocean through the open screen porch. The wait staff is very friendly and treats you more like a friend/family than simply a patron of the restaurant. If you want to try out some of the neighboring resorts' restaurants for dinner, the staff will arrange for a free boat shuttle to come pick you up and bring you back to a number of them as well.
The resort was small enough that should you choose to, it is quite easy to meet and mingle with others. We ended up on two different days doing excursions with other couples we had met while hanging out at the restaurant, pool, and bar of X'tan Ha.
While it is remote, getting in to San Pedro is only a 20 minute boat ride. There are both periodic free shuttles from the resort itself as well as a regular Boat Taxi schedule that makes everything really easy. Boat taxi rates are only $8US.
The resort has free kayaks, bikes, and other complementary water activities. And with the folks from No Worries Tours being located on the same dock, planning your days is super convenient should you want to take a trip to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve or a myriad of other diving locations.
You can find a link to the local grocery(about 2.5 miles down the dirt road) on their website. I highly recommend having them pre-deliver some basic food items for you in advance. It was very convenient and being able to cook our breakfast each morning while the sea-breeze blew gently in the front door of our suite was phenomenal. You can also pick up stuff at the stores in San Pedro if you want, but it was nice not to have to worry about any of that and just jump into our vacation without having to do the shopping trip first.
The bar juts out into the water and is one of the more beautiful settings in the world for a Pina Colada or a Belikin beer. Whether you are on a family vacation or a honeymoon couple, this place is great.
The only thing that didn't work completely right was the WiFi which was sporadic. But, I chalk that up to the Mayan Gods telling me I needed to focus more on the beauty in front of me than what is floating around on my phone. But, for those of you who "need" that digital fix, it seemed to be up and running pretty well by the end of the week.
I will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Pretty much all the rooms are great. Most of the Pool View rooms have a view of the sea as well. T...

Chris, thank you for choosing X'tan Ha and for taking your time to write such a detailed review of the resort.

It is true that the internet in Belize is slower than most Countries and that being on an island we face unique challenges with infrastructure on a daily basis. Arriving with a positive attitude and going with the flow can go a long ways in really enjoying a vacation and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us.

I wanted to let other travelers know that we do not run a free shuttle to/from town. We do however sell Coastal Express passes right at the Front Desk at a discounted rate. The Coastal Express is our local "water bus" and runs up and down the island from morning til night. We encourage our guests to experience our local transportation option, kind of like when in New York you should really hop on subway, here, you should hop on the Coastal at some point during your stay.

We look forward to hosting you again!

Everything from the time we arrived for our 7 day vacation was fantastic!!! Great beach front room, fantastic views and wonderful staff. The tours we took thru No worries tours were great!!! Kayaked out to the barrier reef 3 times - the location of this resort is perfect. If you really want to feel away from it all this is the place to go. Water taxis are available all day to take you anywhere on the island. Great for families or couples - can't wait to go back!!! Our daughter got sick while we were there and Stacy at the front desk couldn't have made it easier. She arranged everything, appointment with the Dr. transportation and they staff even checked on our daughter after we returned. Cannot say enough about our experience. You won't be dissappointed!!!

We spent about a week at X'tan Ha (June 28 to July 6, 2014). Look NO further if you are headed to Ambergris Caye. X'tan Ha has the best beach of any resort on the Caye. The apartments were spacious and clean and all of them have beautiful views of the ocean. It was so relaxing to lounge in the hammock on our porch and listen to the waves and feel the breezes.
Upon arrival, the X'tan Ha welcome begins as the staff meets you at the boat with fresh, cooling hand towels and a delicious rum punch. The staff's kindness and sincerity were constant throughout our stay. Basically, the people working at X'tan Ha are just lovely people.
No Worries Tour operators were extremely accommodating and fun to be with, and we loved swimming with the sharks!
The gentleman at the beach bar took good care of us and made us delicious drinks.
Lorraine and Chef DJ, who run the restaurant at X'tan Ha, whipped up amazing lobster dishes.
Mr. Oliver, a very kind gentleman, manages X'tan Ha and he is most caring and professional. One of the things I loved most about this resort was that you could do as much or as little as you felt like. No pressure at X'tan Ha.
Very importantly, when you go to X'tan Ha, don't forget to reserve time for the Belizian massages, and do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a 90 minute one right on your balcony.
We will certainly be back to Xtan Ha. Upon leaving, we were told by staff, "see you next year"................to which we replied, "no, we'll be back this year!"

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem to be a great choice. They all have views of the ocean. You can pay a little...
