“Spectacular View - Great Location”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We were assigned to a North Tower, two bedroom apartment on the 24th floor. We had apt 148. Can only say SPECTACULAR view!!! The room was nicely appointed with the usual plusses and minuses found in most places. However, for the cost there was plenty of space to live, relax, and enjoy life on the beach. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: North tower as high up as possible. If you request apt 148 you won't be disappointed!

Hi Jim F thanks for your great review of your recent stay with us in unit 148. A popular apartment with guests wanting centre apartment on a high floor - the views are quite spectacular.

The onset of the whale watching season makes the views from the high floors very popular as the whales are often only a few hundred metres from shore.

Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

Regards

Loved everything about out stay here. Two families - two apartments and everything was just perfect from the rooms, the view, the grounds, the beach and the management was so helpful and considerate even with our many teenage (and adult visitors). Liked it so much our friends bought one right away and well - we are considering too!

Hi KimJolly thank for the great review of your stay with us in January. The resort lends itself well to groups wanting to stay near each other and with many apartments have king and queen beds we can accommodate families, groups and mixtures (the apartments are big enough).

Your friends are enjoying their new apartment and I hope you get the opportunity to but one too. Please contact me directly if you are interested in viewing our listings.

Regards
Duncan Manderson.

Stayed at these lovely apartments again must be our 6th return. The apartment on the 13th floor was perfect and very spacious. Great views of the beach and also down to Marina Mirage. 2 lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, though only 2 of us, all very clean and neat and the 2 balconies great. Staff very helpful on booking and settling in. Definitely return. Soon I hope.

Room Tip: All high level apartments have great views and from past experience all room s are nicely decorated.

Hi ccdc12, thanks for the great review of your recent stay with us. It's always encouraging to our returning guests writing reviews as it reinforces the great reviews. Our apartments are rare mix of large size and high quality on the Gold Coast. Our tireless housekeeping team are doing an outstanding job keeping the apartments spotless and they deserve all the accolades they receive.

Thanks again for the great review and we hope to see you again for number 7.

Great location and property well maintained. Management very friendly and helpful. Room 139 that we had had been redecorated approx two years ago and was very comfortable. There were recent kitchen improvements which were needed. Only other improvement that should be made is a new refrigerator.

Room Tip: High floor in north wing. Ensure the room has been upgraded.

I've stayed here for the past several years and it has always been very comfortable, big apartments. Ask for superior room to get the units that have been refurbed.
Great views, facilities. Close to beach.

As many others have said before, Xanadu is a perfect place to stay if you like great ocean views, a huge, perfectly clean apartment with all the facilities, close to the beach and restaurants. The staff were great at helping with anything we asked, including theme pass tickets. We stayed in North tower, level 21 with amazing views and lots of sun. The children (8 and 12) loved the indoor pool (outside a bit cold in May) and spa and mostly had it to themselves. The beach was close to run or walk along, the restaurants in Tedder Ave and Petes seafood and the surf club were close by and gave lots of options for eating with children. We walked one afternoon into Surfers for the night markets (our kids are good walkers but it is only 5 mins by car if you want the action).

A perfect place to end our month in Australia. We know where to send friends who are heading to the Gold Coast now!

Hi KirstyPeel thank you for the wonderful review of your recent stay with us in Main Beach. It's especially pleasing to know the staff did a grat job looking after your requests and were able to provide tickets to the local tourist attractions. There is so much to do on the Gold Coast and I hope you enjoyed experiencing what the GC has to offer.

I remember seeing your children in the pool and spa on their own, which was unusual to see children here outside the local school holidays. You all seemed to enjoy your holiday and we hope you'll return one day soon.

Please contact us directly for the best possible rates and apartment choice.

Regards
Duncan Manderson.
