We recently had an overnight stop at the Sofitel Macau at ponte 16.
Its location was great for us since it is walking distance (about 15 min walk) from the old part of Macau, so, it was easy to see all the historical tourist attractions.
We upgraded to a Club room as it was a special occassion. We had a very pleasant spacious room with a river view. The Club Sofitel lounge was excellent and Diego, one of the staff there when we happened to be there, was very helpful. He even went out of his way to look up how to make a cocktail requested by my other half.
We tried the breakfast buffet in the morning. It was good, with lots of variety, though strangely, the dim sum was a bit disappointing. However, everything else was very good and the quality of the sweet/dessert section was exceptional. The macaroons and croissants, in particular, were scrumptious and a credit to the French hotel chain! Also, it was the first time we have ever seen a chocolate fountain at a breakfast buffet. No complaints though as my other half loved it! :)
The only small niggle we had with the hotel was the smell of smoke when you are in the lobby / lower floors as there is a casino there. However, we understand that this is Macau, and it is probably inevitable that most of the hotels in Macau will have a smoke filled casino some where on its premises.
All in all, we had a lovely time here and would be happy to come back again.
