Having stayed at Xanadu several times in the past, it is very pleasant to return and receive the professional service from reception not elsewhere available. Although Xanadu is no longer new, the maintenance and modern style provides exceptional accommodation. Located just across from the ocean, the views are from Coollangata in the South to the Seaway in the North.. There... More

Great apartment, very roomy with an excellent view! A block away from Tedder Avenue with lots of restaurants and cafes and about a 15 minute walk to Marina Mirage. Bus stop at the end of the road. We really enjoyed our stay.

We also ate one night at the Marina only 5 minutes away. Only complaints...we were there for 6 nights and once in the unit we... More

Quality of apartments and location is amazing. Travelled with family and it was the perfect base for our holiday. Apartments a self contained with full kitchen. Resort has full BBQ facilities. The indoor heated spar was a delight after golf or a day at the beach

Excellent accommodation with spectacular views (apartment 67 on 22nd floor - East Tower). A couple of minor issues that we noticed on our last day (because we ate out every night) - the dishwasher was not secured and tipped forward when the tray was extended and the range hood did not work. We didn't raise these issues with the friendly... More

We'd never stayed at Main Beach on the Gold Coast before, but have been to a number of other areas. We were certainly not disappointed at Xanadu! The management and staff were very helpful and friendly and showed a real interest in us. The room and view were way beyond our expectations and the facilities outstanding. We'd recommend Xanadu and... More

Hi Madonna M thank you for the great review on our TripAdvisor page, it was great to receive. Our location is very popular with people who enjoy being close to the action but away from the crowded and noisey hub of Surfers Paradise. The tram is proving to be very popular with visitors and residents of the Gold Coast and... More
