“Unit 61 - like staying in a trusted friend's luxury apartment!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We have stayed in many apartments on the Gold Coast and the standards vary a lot as each one is individually owned so the quality and decor fluctauate a great deal, with most having a generic but acceptable feel. This apartment, on the 20th floor with uninterrupted beach views from every room, took our breath away! We felt as though a trusting friend had allowed us the privilege of staying in their private luxury condo! The apartment was decorated so beautifully, we often bought takeaways from nearby Tedder Avenue and luxuriated in the ambience of the huge balcony, where we were lucky enough to see whales pass by! There was every possible gadget and device in the well appointed kitchen for those wanting to prepare their own meals, but we found great 'early bird' specials for dining and takeaways on Tedder Avenue so we didn't bother. Our teenagers were also very happy with the indoor pool, spa, gym and tennis courts. The 15 minute walk into the sleazy action of Cavill Avenue didn't seem to bother them, and we were delighted with the quiet elegance of Main Beach.

Room Tip: We snuk a peak into a couple of 'open for inspections' and I really preferred the 'middl...

We stayed at Xanadu for 4 nights in July. Reception was friendly enough. Apparently they just had a change of ownership and so there was no compedium with information on the facilities. We saw the pool and gym but didn't get to try them out.
There were 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We were on the 11th floor in the East Tower and had a lovely view of the beach from the lounge and kitchen.
PROS Views, furnishings were nice and the apartment was clean and very spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped and we also had laundry facilities. Short walk to beach and to Tedder Ave cafes and shops
CONS we had two small children and the dining table and coffee table had a glass top which was not very stable. Just have to be careful.
Overall, we had an enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend.

We recently stayed at this resort for the second time. In two years, the rooms, building and amenities have remained in good conditon.

The staff are always friendly and willing to accommodate my requests.

There is an indoor heated pool, 2 x spas and sauna. These amenities are always clean and well kept.

We have stayed in both towers and found the rooms to be in immaculate condition, fully equiped with oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, laundry with washing machine/dryer.

Our unit had 2 HUGE bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.

Something else that is HUGE! THE VIEW!!!!!! Amazing ocean views. When we were there at the end of June 2012, we watched pods of whales from our balcony. They were breaching and really putting on a show.

We would recommend this resort for anyone. There is a park across the road that the kids would love.

Seaworld is within 5 minutes from the resort. Tedder Avenue is a block away, and has loads of great food options to chose from.

We will definitely be going back for a third time!

Room Tip: If you dont want to go out, there is a big variety of meals that can be delivered to the hotel.

We have regularly been to Xanadu on Main Beach since July 2005, going at least once a year.
The apartments are beautiful with great ocean views and very well equipped. The kitchen has a great range of cooking utensils as well as microwave, fridge/ freezer, dishwasher etc. We also had 2 bathrooms - a must travelling with kids! We've stayed in several of the 2 bedroom apartments and have never been disappointed. The security of the building is excellent too, so you feel safe and secure.
It is in an excellent location, a short stroll from the beach and from Tedder Avenue where there are lots of family friendly restaurants. It is a short drive or about a 20 min walk to Surfers Paradise and to Sea World.
We found the staff friendly, but as this is self catered accommodation, their service offering is minimal.

My kids particularly like the games room and the indoor pool and we find it an easy place to be. I've recommended to lots of my other friends who have also loved the place.

Room Tip: Higher floors have clearer views of the ocean. Just make sure you have an ocean view: a few of the...
