I am rating this as a hotel and not the show (The House of Dancing Water) that everyone is crazy about. The hotel interior is quite mediocre, having been to other hotels in the area. There were a few nice areas for photo ops but not a must see.

The Dancing Water Show located in the City of Dreams offers a good show beautifully made and planned by people. The show is nice and pretty related to the theme of water, action and power/ strength. Motorcycles are enabled and we can see them flying from one spot to the other, showcasing brillant dramatic skills and performance. The price is... More

I really didn't know anything about this show, but it was suggested that we had to see it while in Macau. I was so sad when the show was over. I wanted to see more! The acrobats are extremely talented and the pool appearing and reappearing was just magical. With each new scene there was something to surprise us. My... More

By far the best show I've watched in a long time,not to be missed if in Macau.It will keep you spell bound and on your toes for 1.5 hrs.You must make a booking and avoid the first 2 rows.

Amazing performance with state of the arts effects, design and sounds. The show start on time so make sure to be there is at least 30 min before. The first row might get wet but this is a real experience. there is aprox 15 min break in the middle. Don't miss this attraction!

HOUSE OF DANCING WATER: was absolutely amazing! We weren't expecting the show to be on such a grand scale. Special effects, Sound, Lighting all essential parts of story telling, were second to none! The acrobatics, tricks, turns, tumbles, dives were phenomenal. Good enough to compete with Olympians. The stage also needs special mention. It is a circle so everyone can... More

I like the name to start with, City of Dreams. I went to the Casino and was disappointed because there were asking for HKD when this is Macau it made no sense to me, they also didn't take card like the Venetian so i was upset. Didn't played at all here.

Went for the House of Dancing Water. The hotel is trying revamp the attractions within the premise which is a bit run down. You feel there is a feel of dream. Hopefully the next visit will give me the wow factor. There are too many shopping displays on the walkway creating too many barriers on the traffic flow especially to... More

Fantastic show not to be missed if you are in Macau. Throughly enjoyable for my family - both young and old! Be warned!!! Add 45 mins to arrive before showtime for long walk, long queue and before show bathroom visit. Longer detour walk to get to the threatre due to some retail reno works. Also, even if you purchased the... More
