Was in Macau on a business trip and I really enjoyed my stay at Sands. Very luxurious room and comfortable bed. Large rooms with big tv and wifi that give you a sense of home away from home and is great to wind down. I found that everyone part of the hotel staff were really friendly as well as courteous....

We recently stayed at the Sands in Macau for 5 nights. The Sands provides a free shuttle from the pier to the hotel. There is also a free shuttle to the Venetian that is located across the bay in Cotai. The Lobby of The Sands is in a very strange location, it actually discourages walks-ins as it is hidden by...

A free shuttle bus brought us from ferry pier to the hotel. We were quite excited until we could not find the reception lobby after walking up and down the escalators and lifts, from ground to second floor for twenty minutes.

The suites are not bad at all but one thing is the suite and the living has a opening between the two so not much privacy between the two rooms. Other the room and the jacuzzi bathtub is very nice and comfortable.

This hotel is by far, the best hotel I have ever stayed. The rooms are grand with hair dryer, iron & ironing board, shaver, matches etc. I especially love the comfy bed with the dresser. It was a pleasant experience overall & I would definitely book this hotel should I return to Macau.

The well-appointed rooms at the Sands Macao are large and beautiful. Service is outstanding and the casino is quite large. For westerners, however, restaurant choices within the hotel are very limited. There is an excellent steakhouse, but the other choices are all Asian. A free shuttle takes guests to the Cotai Strip and back every 15 minutes or so.
