Property Experience


A small and cozy casino, this great hotel also has a nice rooftop bar that has a great view of the peninsula side, live music and not too expensive wine and spirits. The Infinity Pool is also a good place for cool swim, especially around the sunset hours. Seems like everything here has a nice view of Macau.




This is the home of some great poker rooms, and also hosted the Asia Poker Tour events in the past. The classic style building offers a very quiet casino experience, but the best part is taking a night-time walk around the Fisherman’s’ Wharf next door. Great classic coliseum-style mini-theater, and also a great time at Afrikana can be had for all.




The best selection of normal-class western and asian foods. Helpful for homesick Japanese, with options like Ufufu Cafe and Chisasa. Tim Ho Wan is an orthodox intro to HK style cuisine, and the Roadhouse is a great place for after hour beers. Frequent exhibitions and fun food stalls.


Casa Real
