Xanadu Holiday Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We have stayed at Main Beach many times past and our usual place of residence had slipped in quality and service so we went searching for a new "skyhome" away from home and found Xanadu! WOW thanks guys our faith has been restored and Main Beach is once again back on our annual radar. Great Service, facilities and location. Really spacious apartments. See you soon

Room Tip: East Tower for the Views

Hi Deb S thank you for the lovely review if your recent stay with us and I hope you get the opportunity to stay with us on a regular basis. Our apartments are very spacious and the East Tower is nearest to the ocean which jeans all apartments have a clear view of the ocean.

Please contact us directly for the best possible rate and room selection.

This resort was excellent in almost all categories. The service was friendly. The room was very spacious, clean and new looking. The kitchen came complete with everything you would need to cook and store food. The ocean view was fabulous. It was walking distance to Tedder Avenue for restaurants and groceries. We booked a romance getaway so got a complimentary bottle of champagne. The only small negative was the bed was rather firm for those who prefer softer bed, but it was not as firm as some you get in Thailand!

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with our two children. Location Perfect, walk to beautiful restaurants and any convenience. Easy to get to shopping outlets and access to the worlds. Apartments are large with plenty of room for friends and their children who were also staying at Xanadu. The ocean side balcony was huge and those views, views, views directly across the road from Main Beach. Fantastic all round and we will definitely be back when next in town.

Hi Murraymandrake, thank you for the flattering review of your recent stay with us. I'm pleased you enjoyed the apartment and stunning view we enjoy right opposite the beach. Our resort is very popular with groups of families who like to stay in the same building and share apartments as the large proportions allow for entertaining.

Thanks again for the great review and I hope we see you again for your next holiday to the Gold Coast.

We loved our stay during Easter hols, we had 10yo plus teens and there was something for everyone, heaps to do in Surfers just down the road but the best part was the beach, the ocean views, the "wow" apartment - we also had fantastic weather which was a bonus. Gold coast has certainly changed for the better since last visit 10+ years ago, not a single bad element even in the middle of surfers! Must do: Stroll Tedder ave at night, it's magic. Explore Curtis falls, Gallery walk in Tambourine Mountain. Visit " Infinity" attraction at surfers. Too much to do and see, we will be back.

We got by on free wifi but probably should have paid for better service.
Would have loved: an extra TV in the main bedroom
Thanks Xanadu staff...

Room Tip: we had ocean view corner suite on level 21 and it was high!!!! So private and relaxing and views n...

The apartment was really large, clean and well appointed. The views of the ocean were just wonderful and there is pools, tennis courts etc to keep all entertained.
Being close to the surf club and Tedder Ave for food was great. Lovely coffee also just around the corner.

Room Tip: Loved the beach facing room we had.

After reviews from Tripadvisor, cancelled other resort in Favour of Xanadu.
Seriously the best decision made, with thumbs up from the whole family.
Spacious, modern well appointed rooms, with excellent views. Close to everything, except the crowds. I'm happy, kids happy and most importantly wife is happy. ;)
Outside pool cool, no problem. Use the heated indoor pool, heated spas and sauna.
If you want to stay at a exceptional, relaxing, comfortable, apartment resort, then look no further than Xanadu.
I will definitely return and stay at Xanadu, next time we visit Gold Coast.

Room Tip: Was in 2 bedroom apartment, 11 floor. Bed was luxurious but soft. My preference is firm mattresses.

Hi Terence P thank you writing such a flattering review of your recent stay with us. You mentioned you stayed on the 11th floor and happy with that view which is great to know. Everyone has a personal preference for floor height and location which can cause issues but you were clearly happy with your apartment.

Thank you for your comments and we hope you return again soon (with your happy wife).

Thanks again for the fantastic review and please book directly for the best rates and room options.

We were wanting a really relaxing family holiday, whilst meeting the high energy levels of our kids. Xanadu Holiday resort was perfect as the children were constantly kept busy with the indoor and outdoor pools, fun was had regardless of the weather. The views from our apartment were magic we awoke each morning looking out to the Pacific Ocean and enjoyed our fresh prawns for dinner on our balcony at night. With short walks to major shopping centres, great cafes, fresh local seafood and of course the beach our every desire was met. Our apartment was spacious and equipped with everything we needed The resort staff were friendly and helpful which made our stay complete.

Room Tip: We were in room 43 on level 14 in the East Wing our balcony was massive and view uninterrupted

Hi Nicole3551, thank you for the lovely review of your recent stay with us. It's great to read a positive review from someone who stayed on a mid height floor. The East Tower is very popular with guests who prefer to be directly opposite the beach with uninterrupted views of the ocean.

Your experience with us is typical of holiday makers who are looking for a special experience in a spacious apartment in a special location. We try to make our apartments comfortable and provide everything necessary for an enjoyable stay.

We hope to see you again one day, and please contact us directly for the best possible rates and apartment choices.

Duncan Manderson.
