My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have recently had another months holiday at Xanadu Resort, Main Beach. We have been holidaying annually on the Gold Coast for many years and have stayed at numerous holiday complexes so have had the opportunity to compare the standards of accommodation. As a result we have decided that Xanadu is the...

We stayed at Xanadu last year and liked it so much we requested the same apartment this year which were allocated. Centrally located with great views and spacious apartments. Parking is an issue with only one car space per apartment and visitor parking spaces taken up by residents with two cars. This is not policed. Staff are friendly and helpful...

Our apartment was really beautiful. Lovely furnishings, comfy bed, brilliant shower and quiet. Great location away from the hustle and bustle. Nice restaurants in walking distance, beach across the road and a short drive to Sea World.

After reading such great reviews about the Xanadu resort, I was disappointed to arrive to a dated building. The apartment was very nice and spacious and the views are lovely but the walls in the area near the lift on our floor were not cleaned for the whole time we were there. The lifts are tired and the mirrors are...

Stayed at the Xanadu in August. Apartment was fantastic with the most amazing views looking out to the ocean. Apartment had everything we required. Apartment was very spacious with the main bedroom over looking the ocean. No for the downside. The Xanadu failed to inform us prior to our stay that there was 2 apartment blocks been built right in...

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...

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...
