Booked Xanadu for a small informal conference over the weekend. Bec and Karla were very helpful when I was organising it a couple of months ago, and Bec offered the comfortable and spacious library area for our conference sessions, which turned out to be perfect for our needs. My husband and I shared with another couple in a two-bedroom apartment... More

We've stayed at Xanadu once before and were happy to go back again for a few nights recently. This place is fantastic. So well maintained, spacious apartments and beautiful views. The staff are friendly and the pools, gym, BBQ's and Tennis Courts are great. All well presented and maintained. The only suggestion I could make is to have the rooms... More

What a great place to stay. There were four of us, staying for a family holiday and their two bedroom apartments were simply brilliant. Equipped with everything that you could possibly think of, comfy beds, beautifully furnished and lovely bathrooms - we are very glad that we made the decision to book with Xanadu. Sometimes though, the most important things... More

We travelled to the Gold Coast for the Marathon. Xanadu is great for this, an easy walk to and from the start. The views up and down the beach were also great. Room was well sized for our family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 children under 6. Only issue we experienced was that the oven stopped working late... More

We just spent 4 days at Xanadu Resort in a 2bed apartment - what a fabulous apartment high on the 24th floor - we did upgrade to the refurbished room.
