We booked for 5 nights in a two bedroom superior ocean front apartment. The apartment was spacious, clean and very accessible to the beach and restaurants. We would stay again and recommend the resort to anyone, you won't be disappointed. Only tip, take extra dishwashing tablets from home if you have a large group of people with you.

Have just completed 7 nights at Xanadu Holiday Resort with my husband and 3 children. Reception friendly and helpful, apartment clean large and lovely. You can hire beach towels from reception so no need to bring from home. These are of a good size and well kept in a stripped pattern and well priced to hire for a week $3.... More

Xanadu Holiday resort exceeded our expectations. It's always hard booking online without having first hand experience of a hotel but they didn't disappoint. We had apartment 48 level 16 and the apartment was spacious and the views amazing. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need. The outdoor and indoor pool was amazing and a hit with our... More

Wow - the views are fantastic from our room on the 10th floor. We could see up the beach to the north and straight out to the east. The quality of the rooms were excellent. The bedrooms were huge with a walk-in robe in the main bedroom. Our apartment looked like it had only recently been refurbished with good quality... More
