“Excellent Location & Great Facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We received a very friendly & informative reception when checking in which is always a great start to a holiday. We stayed in a one bedroom ocean view room where the view was spectacular from the 14th floor. Our unit 43 was spacious and had everything we needed. The facilities were all great, we played tennis, swam in the pool & used the gym. It is just across the road from the beach and very close to Tedder Avenue for groceries, Cafes & Restaurants & many other stores. Highly recommend this Resort and we will be returning again.

The apartment was on the 18th Floor of the North Tower and it was better than we expected. It was luxurious and had excellent views over the ocean. Would definitely stay here again, the only downside was having to pay for internet, but that is a tiny criticsm.

Best holiday location. My family have always stayed here and recently I came here with my husband and 7 month old baby. It was terrific just as it was with my family. Great facilities.....if the weather wasn't perfect we just took the nun to the indoor pool and it was great. So close to everything we got in the car twice in 8 days. Beautiful location and views, so peaceful yet so close to all the action I recommend it to people all the time.
Will be back again next year.....wish it was sooner!!

Room Tip: ask for as high up as possible the views are amazing. every room has an ocean view though!

Our family enjoyed our stay here tremendously. Sea view from the living room and main bedroom is breathtaking. Very central location on Mainbeach and 2 min walk to the beach. Staff extremely helpful and the rooms are very spacious. Very well equipped kitchen and facilities. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with sea view. Worth paying the premium!

Many of the rooms have been recently upgraded and although there is a small premium for those rooms everyone seems to think its worth it.

This area of the Gold Coast is still close to all the action but much quieter and more suitable for families than Surfers Paradise. There are tennis courts and indoor and outdoor pools to keep the kids busy. Easy access to the beach across the road, great views too.It is a 5 minute walk to Tedder Ave which has quality restaurants and a small supermarket. A short 15 minute drive to the theme parks (2 mins to Seaworld). We keep going back (4 or 5 stays).

We stayed at Xanadu in November 2012 on a recommendation from a friend. We are a family of four, children 7 & 5. We stayed in the North Tower on the 13th level and the apartment was clean and spacious, it had everything that we needed. The location was perfect, far enough away from the hustle of Cavill Ave and a short walk to both Tedder Avenue and the beach (flag area for the kids). The facilities were all that we could want, especially the indoor heated pool where we spent many hours. We will definately be back.
