Stayed one night at the Sheraton Macau to go to The House of Dancing Water with my family. We booked a Family Suite. The Family Suite is two interconnecting rooms permanently set up with one side having a King bed and the other with a kid's bunk bed, child-themed furniture, a TV and a Nintendo Wii.
The room set up is excellent and my kids loved having their own room, even though I expected them at 14, 11 and 9 to be a bit old for the kiddie decor. The parents' room is also well appointed with a comfortable bed and nice red-themed decor which is not in any way child themed.
The hotel itself is the usual Cotai strip Casino-fueled nightmare, but that is the Cotai Strip and all the hotels in this area suffer from this. If you want quiet, old-school Macau head to the Westin in Coloane.
The pool area is a bit pokey but a couple of the small pools are heated which makes it easier to use it in cooler months with the kids.
The benefits include easy access to all of the hotels in Cotai and their restaurants, a short walk to City of Dreams to get to the House of Dancing Water and plenty of shops to browse. The negatives are the hoards of package tourists, many of whom appear to be on their first ever holiday, which does take some getting used to. My children liked the room so much that they were happy to hide out there instead of wandering around being jostled by the package tourists.
The hotel is good value relative to the rest of the Cotai hotels. As long as you know what you are in for staying in the Cotai Strip then the Sheraton is a good choice.
