Stayed at the Westin Resort Macau from 30 October to 2 November for a company conference.
The resort is not within walking distance from either the happenin' Macau or the up-and-coming Cotai Strip. If you are in the ex-Portuguese colony for its casinos, you will do well NOT to stay here. There is a bus that shuttles between the resort and the ferry terminal. The driver is happy to let you alight anywhere along the way - but this bus comes along only once every 30 minutes.
The resort overlooks a black sand beach, or so their publicity materials say. The beach is, at best, average - more rocks than sand.
The room I stayed in was really spacious and well appointed with all the amenities one would expect from a 5-star resort. The purple wall was a little bit odd, but I got used to it after a while. There is a terrace with two deck chairs with a view of the aforementioned beach. The much touted 'Heavenly Bed' and 'Heavenly Bath' were, well, average. I've seen (and used) better.
All the food I had by the hotel's restaurants and catering services were really seriously average. It's a wonder how they managed to make everything so bland and so... wrong. I can't really describe it, but everything tasted like they were prepared by career amateurs.
The gym has definitely seen better days. The free weights were rusty and don't go heavier than 54lbs. The treadmills were creaky and unstable. 3 or 4 treadmills (of different models) were placed really close together, not only unsightly but also rather annoying to use.
Not a good experience staying at the resort. If not for the conference I wouldn't have chose to stay there. Now that I have, I wouldn't want to go back again.
