4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Xanadu is a comfortable, relaxing and quiet place away. Onsite gym, new equipment with all the essentials. Comfy beds, quiet residential location and within walking distance to Tedder avenue cafes and restaurants. Beach right across the street, with lots of opportunity for beach walks. Underground free parking if you're driving. Apartment had full kitchen dinning and lounge room. Has outdoor... More

Easily one of the best places I have ever stayed . It was colder while we were there so we did not go to the pool area but the apartment was amazing. Had two areas. One bedroom bathroom for the kids and a separate lock of area with big bathroom and room for the adults. Big built ins to store... More

We are regulars at Xanadu resort. It well located near the Main Beach and Tedder Avenue and have friendly staff. It's a clean and well maintained property with attentive professional staff. At times you may find their prices uncompetitive but in general we have got value for our money.

I stayed here on my own over the weekend while on Gold Coast for a bike race and would happily come back with the family. The rooms are a bit dated but really generous in size, quiet, clean and comfortable. The view is fantastic too. Like the fact that it's slightly away from the centre of Surfers Paradise. There are...

Pre paid an apartment for a girls weekend. On the day of the trip we got a shock when one of our group had to go to the emergency room very sick. I called the hotel ( on very short notice and expected nothing could be done.) and said 'I don't expect it's possible but I am wondering if I... More

We stayed at Xanadu from July 30th to Aug 8th. Checked in the night. In the morning the panoramic view from the large balconies was breathtaking. We stayed along with a family of close friends in # 141 & 142. The kitchen was well equipped. Both apartments were tastefully furnished. Close to almost everything of interest / convenience & right... More

Stayed two nights and this self contained apartment is very spacious and right across the road from the beach which was fantastic. The check in process was easy considering it was after hours. The staff at the front desk when I checked in and out were really lovely. My only let down was that they only had one set of... More

I am always a bit skeptical of booking on the Gold Coast as some apartment photos never quite match the real thing. Xanadu Resort is the exception. This huge apartment with amazing views from every room was beautiful. Tasteful and comfortable decor with everything you need in the kitchen. The beds were super with pillows to match - something near... More

I wasn't that keen on the theme park holiday, not a speed demon myself, but this was a holiday for the kids. Until we arrived at the Xanadu Resort...when I realized this was going to be a holiday for me too! The apartment was outstanding. The facilities were perfect for my aged kids, 8-10-16. Indoor pool was a must with... More
