I stayed at the Rocks Hotel in Macau for three nights and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is located at the end of the fisherman's wharf development in Macau, which doesn't seem to have been a great success as lots of the units are empty, and there only ever seems to be a handful of people strolling round it. However this means that the hotel and the area around it are fairly quiet which can be a blessing given that Macau can be very hectic, particularly on weekends when there are hoards of visitors from the mainland coming across to gamble. It is only a short walk to the main casinos and the more historic area around the ruins of Saint Paul's.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and moved my room for me after a small problem with my first one with no fuss whatsoever. The room was large, very clean with a big bathroom and complimentary wired broadband access. All the rooms have balconies either overlooking the wharf and the ferry terminal or out to Taipa. The hotel's decor is very interesting in a sort of victorian style which works pretty well.
Breakfast was ok, nothing special but passable, although communication with the egg chef was challenging as he spoke little English. The waiting staff were always quick to translate for me though so it wasn't a problem.
The only downside is that the hotel is a little on the expensive side, but it appears that most of the good ones on Macau are.
