When visiting the Gold Coast there is no other place that I would want to stay than at "Xanadu" at Main Beach. The location is superb, the apartments spacious and well appointed and the service at the front desk extremely efficient. If you were a first time visitor there is an abundance of brochures to inform you of the many things that you can do on the Gold Coast. Staff at the front desk, especially Anne are so very helpfully with whatever your questions or needs may be.

The location of Xanadu is excellent for an easy stroll on the beach,or to the many and varied restaurants and cafes
either at Main Beach or Surfers Paradise. Would I return to Xanadu again? Absolutely.

Room Tip: There really are no tips. All apartments are well furnished and maintained with great views of the o...

We stayed here at Easter and had a great time, we had a great unit, great views, we are regular visitors here and have always had a wonderful stay really good locatiion. And have always found the reception staff very helpful indeed. We have always dealt with Anne and she is always very helpful to us and nothing is a problem which makes the stay even more enjoyable a big thanks to her.

Hi Paul, a big thanks to you for writing a nice review about your stay at Xanadu. The unit you stayed in is about to undergo a full refurbishment and will be quite the prized apartment. Thank you for identifying Anne as the person you find very helpful. I know she appreciates the recognition and really enjoyed reading your review. Hopefully we'll see you again soon.

I booked an executive room to stay in the night before my wedding and on my wedding night. My friends and I were so impressed with the decor of the apartment and the spaciousness! Also when I checked in the reception staff were so friendly and helpful( not only to myself & my friends, but my hair and makeup artists and my florist delivering flowers to my room), which contributed to the lovely stay. When my husband arrived the next day, he was blown away! He loved the appearance of the apartment as well as the great view of the beach from our balcony!

I would definitely recommend to stay here!

Hi Jaz, thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Xanadu. It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your entourage to stay at Xanadu. I know the ladies behind the desk enjoyed seeing you having such a great time preparing for the wedding. Hopefully we'll see you again and who knows, you might be helping a good friend on her big day.
Thanks again for the lovely review.

We had a lovely time at Xanadu in Main Beach. We had a 2 bedroom oceanview apartment and the view was great. The rooms were spacious and immaculate. Anne was very helpful at reception. The pools were lovely. Close to the beach. I would definately stay here again.

Just had a wonderful stay at Xanadu in Main Beach. Location is just perfect, well located to the beach and Tedder Ave. Swimming pools indoor/outdoor were superb. Our room on the 14th floor in the North tower was just lovely, well sized for a family of 5. It was great to be able to hear the waves lapping up the shore. Ocean views from all living/bedrooms. Air-con worked a treat and beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Floor plans are on the web site (A/B/C). We stayed in the centre room of the North Tower. Plan B I...

Spent quite a few hours researching places to stay for the Easter Sat and Sun nights. Almost all decent places were doubled or tripled because of Easter making it very unaffordable for the average family..... Then.... Bingo!
I found Xanadu and in a nutshell., we LOVED it!
Couldn't fault the room we were in., the view was amazing and loved falling asleep listening to the soothing lap of waves.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went well past the call of duty when they helped print out our tickets for the footy game that night...
I am a very fussy traveller having stayed in hotels all over the world, but this little gem was perfect., no parking issues., quiet., private., clean., affordable .., the list goes on!
When visiting the Gold Coast., Stay here!!
You'll be glad you did...!
We can't wait to come again!!

I am unsure if I'm happy to share my experience as it might mean my next stay will be totally booked out. We are very discerning ( super super fussy ) guests and Xanadau main beach is our venue of choice. We have been coming here for 4 years and will continue to enjoy our holidays in blissful happiness in the future. XMB offers everything you could possibly want , close to the beach , indoor heated pool and spa, views , lovely kitchens and 2 bathrooms ...and tennis courts. And the most important for us ... quiet ! As a family , we know that no matter what the weather holds , we are going to have a great time !
I highly ( albeit reluctantly ) recommend xanadau main beach.

Hi MelindaG thank you for your great review. It's nice to see our regular guests writing reviews and sharing experiences online. We'd love to see more regular guests doing the same.
The unit walls here are solid concrete which means you can't hear your neighbours, a rare feature these days. Very few resorts have all the facilities that you listed which makes Xanadu a very special place for our guests. Thanks again for reviewing Xanadu and we look forward to your next visit.
