"Great stay, excellent service"
The hotel is located within walking distance of the ferry terminal and behind the Sands Casino. Nevertheless it offers complimentary shuttle services to the ferry during the day. I had a short, but great stay at the Grand Lapa Hotel. The room was spacious, very clean and it included a lot of amenities: a safe deposit box, coffee/tea facility, iron and ironing board, slippers, bath robes and toiletries. Breakfast consisted of a great range of cold and warm dishes, served in a nicely-decorated restaurant with a Mediterranean feel. The service was excellent – both reception staff and concierges were very helpful, polite and always had a smile on their face. Upon check-in the reception lady apologized in advance for the inconvenience that renovation works might cause, but since we spent little time indoors during the day, the noise didn’t bother us at all. The hotel has a spa and gym, but I cannot say anything about them as I didn't use them. The internet connection was good. Overall this was a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely go back to this hotel.
What a fantastic place for the price! Huge TV in the room, bed was comfy, so many amenities! Definitely 5 star service for a low price. You are right next door to Sands so you can stay here and gamble there. I was highly disappointed in all of the casinos! Visited at least 10 casinos and all the major ones and only saw one Craps table, no live roulette tables and the food was super expensive! But this was a great hotel.
"My third visit here - a business trip"
I chose this hotel despite a wide choice of alternatives. They make me welcome here, and because of refurbishment (no problem) they upgraded me to a suite. The restaurant is good, and the breakfast buffet is excellent. A comfortable suite with good views across to the South China Sea. I'll be back!
"Excellent despite the renovations"
It is probably unfair to review this hotel at the moment, as it is undergoing extensive renovation. The noise of the drilling will be bothersome for those who wish to stay in their hotel rooms all day, but for those who are there for work or sight-seeing, it ticks all the boxes - friendly staff, clean rooms, good food etc. A housekeeping call is met with immediate response; rooms are clean, with a turn-down service provided. They may look a little tired, with showers in the bath instead of walk-in, but no doubt this is all being rectified in the renovations. Evening meals are tasty, whether a la carte, buffet, or in the excellent Thai restaurant (we didn't try the Chinese), and there was plenty of choice for breakfast, although the toaster should be in a museum! The ferry terminal is just a 10 minute walk away, and it is probably quicker to walk than take a taxi which has to negotiate traffic and the one-way system. In fact, taxis were rather sparse, and we found that it was easier to walk out of the back of the hotel straight across to the Sands casino, where there was always a line of taxis as well as the free buses to take you to the Venetian and other sight-seeing/shopping places. There are plenty of small restaurants and shops in the area, although you have to go farther afield for the "big names", if those are what you want. Edgar in charge of the excellent resort and Edgar the concierge were both extremely helpful. I spent an enjoyable few weeks there - highly recommended.
"A little retreat in Macau"
We stayed at the Grand Lapa only for 1 night as a last minute get away for our anniversary. This hotel is over by the Fishermans Wharf area and away from the more typical casino hotels. Which is why we liked this place. It was quiet and the beautiful pool is like a little retreat away from the hustle of the city. It has a slide and is surrounded by greenery. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Always helping us with finding places or getting us a cab. My understanding is there are some renovations being done to update the hotel. We didn't see anything that made us notice this work. Our room had not been updated but it was fine for 1 night. If we are able to make another trip to Macau this will be the place we stay.
