"A good hotel"
Pros: Great service, clean room. Cons: Location, not close to any attraction, 20-30 mins walk to the old town area. But you can take the public transportation, and free shuttle buses to other major spots at Sands Macau which is just next to Grand Lapa. Pillows, they are bad, too soft.
"Good time to try staying here"
I chose to stay in this place before moving to my new local apartment. I utilised its late check-in, early check-out discount promotion to explore this hotel. As a local expat in Macao, I've heard a lot of good stories about this hotel, and the first hotel restaurant experience in Macao took place here, so I was aware of its good swimming pool facility especially. I've visited Bella Vista as a local walk-in customer, so I know its great atmosphere (yet not necessarily staff service. If you are a heavy breakfast-eater, choose options with breakfast. (A la carte menus and separate payment process for breakfast, based on my experience, were not being taken care of very well.) ). This place is under renovation, and possibly because of that, there might be more price promotions that you can find in this hotel. The room I stayed had a very nice harbour view with a renovated design. Staff especially at the swimming pool were all very kind and helpful. It was a short stay yet a really nice experience. Based on my experience overseas, hotels in Macao offer quite nice amenities. However, be careful when you use the mini bar here, and double-check the location of the free bottled water. Final remark: This place is famous for its good swimming pool. Overall, this hotel is clean, and these days, it provides good value for price. This place might look far away from the city centre; but in fact, it's very close to Sands Macau and Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. I usually walk or take public buses to get to the city centre (i.e., Senado Square are), but it would not be very expensive if you take a taxi, or you can also utilise hotel shuttle buses cleverly to make this place more approachable.
I've just loved my stay at Grand Lapa Macau. Perfect service, great location if you want to visit both the historical city and the Casino esplanades (if you care for the behemoth Coloane island Casinos like the Venetian just hop on the Sands Hotel free shuttle, right beside the Grand Lapa). Another major features were the resort, with its shaded pool and cascade (just what I needed after a scorching 42 °C day) and the Café Bela Vista breakfast. But, above all, what I loved was the tranquil, elegant and exquisite Portuguese-Macanese déco. It was such a relief for the eyes after strolling the glitzy-flashy-bling Casinos.
"Great service, great location and a great room"
Pros: Service! Location to ferry (2 minutes drive and close to the casinos) Pool Renovated room with great views Breakfast Cons: None- loved it and would stay again. Thanks for the brilliant service :)
"Centrally located and with a great swimming pool..."
My wife and I really enjoyed this property. We had a large and comfortable room with good amenities and a light, airy feel overall. We spent most of our time in the early summer heat in the swimming pool - and were not disappointed. It was blissful toi swim underneath the waterfall and just relax without a proverbial "care in the world". Staff were pleasant and friendly throughout our stay!
