“perfect accommodation (Tina & Michael Papas)”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We stayed for one week with our three boys in a ocean view superior room (North building) on the 23 rd floor. The apartment was really lovely and had such a lot of space for a family, the largest holiday apartment we have ever seen, the views were amazing from every room of our apartment. The staff at reception were very welcoming and always helpful through out our stay. Special thanks to Ann at reception. We would definitely stay at Xanadu again, when next at the Gold Coast. The property is so close to everything, like the best restaurants in Tedder Avenue, we had lovely breakfasts and other meals at Tedder Avenue and they are just around the corner from Xanadu. Seaworld theme park is also just a short drive from Xanadu and the fantastic Marina Mirage is just a short ten minute walk up the road, with great shopping and restaurants. We can highly recommend the Providore Restaurant and deli at Marina Mirage, we got some terrific quality take away meals for our evenings on our deck from here and breakfasts amazing at the Providore. Would most defiantly highly recommend this property to anyone, we have no complaints at all, the perfect location and such a beautiful setting. Thank you Xanadu.

Room Tip: Rooms in North building on the higher floors amazing views from every direction and room.

Quite simply superb in every way. We shared a 2 bed apartment, we where amazed when we walked in the first day, the place was bigger than our house!!
With the four of us sharing it only works out at £50 per couple per night! Superb value.
Facilities in apartment are superb, the hotel indoor pool is like a bath! Can't fault the place in any way. Top notch eateries just around the corner, we ate in five of them and they were all superb.
If need supplies when you arrive then nip round the corner to shop on Tedder street.
Can't wait to come back!

Hi Inspectorcalls thank you for the superb review on Tripadvisor. We're pleased you enjoyed our XL apartments and the reasonable nightly rate. The restaurants and other attractions really make Main Beach a very special location with plenty to offer. I hope the remainder of your holiday is equally enjoyable.

Your review is much appreciated and we hope you do return one day.

A beautiful, clean, well appointed apartment. Fantastic views.
Limited Foxtel [ Movies, 4 Sports, and 1 News [Sky] .No comfortable chairs on balcony [only dining chairs] were MINOR drawbacks.
Overall a great holiday in a beautiful setting .Highly recommend.

We have gone to Xanadu many times and they measure up each time. We are picky about accommodation so we appreciate the upmarket rooms they offer. Ann and her team at the front desk are always obliging and we use the pool and tennis courts and internet without hassles. Highly recommended. And Main Beach is a great location - away from the tawdriness, shabbiness and hassles of Surfers.

Hi Michele R thanks for the great review of your stay with us. We offer three room types and our Superior Ocean View is definitely the most popular option as they offer a fully renovated option. Main Beach offers a special location close to the action and away from the crowds.

It's great to see our regular guests returning and reviewing us online - thank you.

Wonderful experience. Wanted to stay longer. Xanadu staff couldn't do more and be more friendly. Room was clean and fault free. Made my partners birthday weekend just that little bit more romantic. Would go back and stay anytime.

Our family of four booked 2 nights at Xanadu as my husband had a conference at the Coast. We booked at Xanadu mainly based on the resort's proximity to the conference venue, but were absolutely blown away by how beautiful the apartment was!

Our apartment was on the 14th floor (out of 25 floors), so not the highest floor, but the sweeping views were nothing short of spectacular! We looked east, north and west, right up to the Spit and beyond to Straddie, and had no other high-rise building looking in on us, so felt totally private.

The unit was much larger than we expected, with a very spacious living area, and 2 large bedrooms with roomy bathrooms, and a separate laundry room. The kitchen was very modern, and was possibly one of the best equipped kitchens we have had in accommodation units. As for the bed, I wanted to take it home with me, it was so comfortable!!

But without a doubt the thing we appreciated more than anything was how impeccably clean the unit was! We have stayed at many different accommodation places over the years, and this would have to rival the cleanest we have come across. I am particularly fussy about cleanliness, and this unit managed to surpass all my expectations. It is an absolute credit to housekeeping, and shows the standards that Xanadu maintain.

The reception staff were also extremely welcoming and friendly, and rounded off a fantastic stay. Just wish we were staying a week, not just a weekend! We will be back, no more having to Google where to stay at the Coast, we now have our 'go to' place every time!

Room Tip: North tower, north facing rooms are quiet, sunny, and expansive views. It is worth paying a bit more...

Hi Alison3018, now that would have to be one of, if not the nicest review we have ever read! We are so pleased we could provide accommodation to the high standard you were hoping for. We obviously strive to achieve very high standards in our units and around the grounds and your recognition of that is very rewarding.

We celebrated your review and thanked the team for their hard work over the recent busy season. The housekeeping team had already seen your review and were very moved by your compliments. Everyone from the front desk team to maintenance and housekeeping took a great deal of inspiration from your writing and I hope we all get to welcome you back to Xanadu.

Thank you again, please feel free to contact me directly for your next visit to the Gold Coast.
