Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our family of 4 recently stayed here at the end of our Australian expedition. The 2 brm apartment was spacious, and the light, fresh decor gave it extra space.We had a terrific view and could hear the surf at night. It was in an excellent location, with an easy walk to the beach and Tedder St with lots of great eating. The staff were friendly and professional. Highly recommended - our family really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the North Tower ocean facing.

Hi Jayspaceman thank you for your most excellent review of your stay at Xanadu. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and I hope you and your family managed to enjoy yourselves before heading home to NZ (after what sounded like a very special trip). Thank you for mentioning the staff as they give Xanadu that 'edge' (they also love reading reviews). Please contact me when you are planning your next visit to the 'GC'.
Regards
Duncan Manderson.

Hi Kendra h thank you for the fabulous review of your stay at Xanadu and glad you managed to find some time to relax and visit the theme parks during the same holiday. It can be a tricky balancing act keeping everyone satisfied. Our location means our guests get the opportunity to enjoy ocean views and be only a few minutes walk from eateries and shipping. Thanks again and we hope to see you again for your next visit across the ditch.

We recently stayed at Xanadu for 4 nights. Our apartment looked like it had recently been refurbished, so felt beautifully clean and fresh with lovely new carpet. All the beds were very very comfortable. There were breath taking views out of every window. I am very particular with the linen being 100% cotton or wool, and I felt a little disappointed that the doona's and blankets were all 100% polyester, especially as everything else in this unit was appointed with such good quality. Xanadu is in a very good location, steps from the beach and Teddar Ave. We enjoyed our stay at Xanadu very much and we will definitely choose to stay there again, when next on Main Beach.

We stayed for 8 nights. The apartment was clean, bright and well appointed. The view of the ocean was great. The staff were very helpful, accommodating and friendly. The location was great with easy access to restaurants and the Gold Coast highway and away from the horrid road works at surfers paradise. Definitely recommend it.

This resort was absolutely perfect for our week as a family (2 adults, 2 children aged 13 and 11) on the Gold Coast. It is ideally located within walking distance to Tedder Avenue for shops and restaurants and is across the road from the beach. Heated pool was ideal as winter weather was warm but not really hot enough to sit on beach all day. Views from our balconies in a 2 bedroom superior apartment were incredible. Grounds, tennis courts, pools etc were beautifully maintained. Apartment was much larger than we expected (we have been telling everyone about it!) with fully-equipped kitchen, 2 indoor living areas and a seperate laundry. The resort staff were so accomodating from the moment we arrived...we immediately were made to feel welcome and like it was a home-away-from-home....nothing was too much trouble for them. We have no hesitation recommending it to others.

Room Tip: We were on 12th floor, North Tower in a 2 bedroom superior room - finish of room was great and view...

My wife and I stayed here 5 nights. Weather was perfect for winter which enhanced the spectacular views from our 17th floor apartment (see picture). Everything was perfect with great access to beaches and Pedder Ave restaurants. We hardly needed to use the car except for a beautiful drive up to Tamborine Mountain.

Highly recommended

Hi Craig152D, thanks for the great review of your stay at Xanadu. It's fantastic to read of your holiday experience enjoying our winter. Some say it's beautiful one day and perfect the next (ok may be not all the time) but when the weather is fine our location really is special. Good to see your made it to Tamborine which is one of my favourite places on the Gold Coast. Thanks again and hopefully we'll see you again one day soon.

This is our third stay at Xanadu and we are were again impressed with the quality of the accommodation. The views are spectacular the location is convenient for Tedder Avenue the beach and a pleasant walk to shops in all directions. The friendliness of the staff at every point of contact is worth a mention from making the reservation to assistance during our visit. We would definitely return and recommend. B&P
