Our apartment in the Xanadu East Tower was perfect for our 5 night stay on the Gold Coast. Spacious open plan lounge and dining area, large master bedroom with en suite and smaller bedroom with 2 singles; plenty of room! Kitchen has everything you need if your preference is to eat at "home" during your stay and the fully equipped laundry means that you can cut back on the clothes you might normally take with you. The apartment we stayed in has been very well maintained with everything in excellent order. Great views out to sea and over the beach and the morning sun beamed right into the master bedroom. On arrival the ladies at reception were very helpful (thank you!) and we settled in quickly. Xanadu is located in a quieter part of the Gold Coast without the hustle and bustle you get around Surfer's and Broadbeach but it is still conveniently located to Southport and to the Main Beach shops and restaurants and to all Gold Coast attractions. If you want to stay in touch with the office and friends you have WiFi access. Very close to the beach (5 minutes) and to Main Beach Surf Life Saving Club. 20 minute walk to SeaWorld, 30 minute walk to Surfer's Paradise. I do not think we would to stay anywhere else on our next trip to the Gold Coast.

Room Tip: We had an apartment in East Tower on 10th floor with beach and sea views.

We stayed 9 nights at the Xanadu and were very happy with the presentation of the apartment. It was lovely and clean, great facilities and the views were gorgeous. The staff were helpful and friendly and that started well before we arrived. Email contact was great. Thanks Anne for your reassurances. We will be back again. Best apartment I've stayed in on the GC so far.

Stayed: April 2014

That is the third time we book a 3 night weekend in the East Tower. The location is perfect for us: park the car in the garage and walk to the beach, walk to the shops. The units are spacious and cosy with a nice carpet, and are practical with a good thinking design. Furniture recent and well maintained.

Room Tip: We prefer the East Tower, offering a closest view to the beach.

We are a popular choice for people who want an easy stay in a modern apartment, in a convenient location near everything, yet safe and quiet at night time.

perfect is the only word that can describe my stay with my 70+ year old grandparents in xanadu in March 2014. An ocean view apartment has always been my dream and there it was. fabulous ocean view without any block even from the kitchen! Dish washing has never been so enjoyable! The rooms are so big, especially the loving room and the main balcony. the furniture is stylish and neat. Our price is 270 pn, havent done any price comparison so i cant comment on it. However, my grandma did said that this is the best apartment she has ever been in in her life, every penny is worthy then.

Room Tip: choose 10th floor plus, so trees wont bather. all rooms are facing the ocean.

Hi 明超余, thank you for your fantastic review of our holiday resort. We are very fortunate to be able to offer large, well appointed holiday apartments right opposite the beach and surrounded by a wide selection of quality restaurants. It's especially pleasing to hear you enjoyed doing the dishes and your grandma especially enjoyed the apartment more than any others.

We hope you enjoyed your holiday enough to recommend our resort to others and we look forward to seeing you again one day.

Regards
Duncan Manderson.
