We stayed here for 8 nights and loved everything about the place. The apartment was so big much bigger than we were expecting. The location was great just far enough from surfers paradise to be away from the hustle and bustle but close enough if you need to go down there. 2 mins from sea world and only about 15... More

My family, my brother's family and his wife's parents spent our holidays staying at the Xanadu Holiday Resort on Main Beach during August this year. We chose Xanadu from the great reviews we have read on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed with the quality of accommodation. We spent a week staying at this resort - we hired a car... More

The resort is excellent, close to the beach and really good restaurants. Its also very good for small children, ours loved it. The apartment was well designed and had stunning views of the ocean. Very easy to find and well located for other attractions like whale watching, Sea World.

Returned to Xanadu for a long weekend with friends. I had requested a two bedroom apartment in the North Tower on a high floor. The reception staff are excellent and we were checked into an apartment on 22nd level in the North Tower, with stunning views of Main Beach and the Pacific Ocean. Apartment 142 was exceptional, with comfortable lounge,... More

This was best holiday apartment I have ever stayed in, with all conveniences, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and all possible kitchen equipment, ( apart from a chopping board ). I had booked a one bed sea view, and we got, I think, a larger apartment,... More
