The resort is excellent, close to the beach and really good restaurants. Its also very good for small children, ours loved it. The apartment was well designed and had stunning views of the ocean. Very easy to find and well located for other attractions like whale watching, Sea World.

Absolutely awesome!! Its a great location and has a great feel. Best stay on the Gold Coast yet. I went there with a group of friend and we all had a really good time, the sauna and indoor pool were well used. All of us want to stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view, well worth it.

We recently stayed at Xanadu. Booked well in advance and got an excellent rate on an ocean view room. We were given a room on the 9th floor with beautiful views of the beach from every room. Apartment was very clean on our arrival and well equipped. We made good use of the indoor pool, spa & sauna. Attractions are a quick drive away eg theme parks, Draculas Cabaret Restaurant. The beach and shops are within easy walking distance. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

The refurbished apartment we had in this resort was outstanding and of a really high quality . The apartments are in a great location and have stunning views out over the ocean . It was amazing to wake up to the sun rising over the sea and feeling like you were in paradise . The staff were friendly and helpful and the pool facilities were great . There is a lovely cafe just on the corner and easy walking distance to the marina .

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a luxury refurbished apartment facing the ocean

Dear mlbardwell, thank you for the fantastic contribution to our Tripadvisor page. We are fortunate enough to be in a location that offers stunning views of the ocean and if you are lucky enough to in an apartment facing the rising sun, you will experience something very special indeed.

I hope the South Island winter gives you a break from the harsh cold soon and the snow melts quickly. I know just how relentless the cold can be in your beautiful part of the world.

Please contact us directly for your next Gold Coast holiday and we will be glad to look after you again.

Thanks again and keep warm.

Regards
Duncan Manderson.

We have just returned from our 7 night stay at Xanadu, we booked a garden room low down but where given a free upgrade to an ocean view room on the 6th floor. Views were stunning, even got to see some whales one morning from our window. Apartment was very clean on our arrival and well equipped. Beds were all very comfy, awesome having two bathrooms so our daughters could have their own space. We made good use of the indoor pool, spa & sauna. Great having so many wifi payment options but the free low speed option was just as good for a short internet time. Beach and shops within easy walking distance. Very easy to get to theme parks etc from Main Beach. We only had contact with staff a couple of times but found them all to be helpful and friendly. Would defiantly stay here again and highly recommend to others.

Room Tip: From the 6th floor road noise not so bad but the ocean seemed quite loud, making it sound like it was raining or very windy.

Hi Furbabiesx2 thank you for such a lovely contribution to out Tripadvisor page. I'm pleased to read you enjoyed the upgrade to an ocean view and how our whales put on a performance for you. There is no better to watch whales frolicking out at sea while you sit an enjoy your breakfast or a coffee on your balcony.

We have replaced almost all of our beds with top of the range luxurious pillow top mattresses which will be the reason you enjoyed them so much. It's great to know that you enjoyed your holiday and we hope to see you back at Xanadu one day soon.

Thanks again.

Duncan Manderson
