Chateau Beachside Resort experience!

Aside from walking around Sydney, we also went to Gold Coast. This time, it's all about food and relaxation!

After spending months of searching where to stay in Gold Coast, we finally decided to book here via booking.com for $379 AUD for 4 nights. 

One of the reason we chose Chateau Beachside is because of the location and good reviews from Tripadvisor. Yes, location, safety, and cleanliness are very important to us. Chateau is a beachfront apartment. And right beside the Chateau, there are lots of high end shops, souvenir shops, restaurants, and convenience store. Therefore, we were able to save a few bucks for our breakfast and snacks! Also, Cavill Avenue, Surfer's paradise is just one block away from our apartment (100m to be exact!).

From the airport, we ride bus 902 and paid $7.90 for one way trip to Surfer's paradise. From there, we walk to our apartment which is easy to find. Our room key is ready when we checked in. We went to our hotel and find the room very refreshing and spacious. We love the room! 

Front Desk area, there are lots of brochures about whale watching, theme parks, etc. 
Our hotel room.. we love the view! There's a small fridge, microwave, electric kettle,  and utensils to use.
Spacious room, with cable TV, dresser, iron board and iron.
our own big bathroom!
Chateau pool...  heated jacuzzi and sauna are on the left side of the pool...
our view...

Lots of restaurants around the Chateau!

Surfer's Paradise!

Cavill Avenue at Surfer's Paradise, lots of shops and eateries!
Pros:
  • Big room
  • Clean room
  • Nice view
  • Lots of nearby shops and restaurants
  • Beachfront apartment
  • Fits our budget
Cons:
  • No aircon/heater (may not be advisable to stay if the weather is too cold or too hot)
  • The bedsheet and sofa may need to be changed as it looks dark and old
  • Curtains does not cover the whole window, so it's a little bright at sunrise which is 4:30am
  • No daily housekeeping on our 4 night stay which is common in Gold Coast apartments
Yes, we will stay again. The apartment is in perfect location, clean room, and fits our budget.
