I have spent the past week here in Macau staying at this special and unique property. It is in a quiet and peaceful area on a hill surrounded by parkland (great for nature walks), away from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Everything here is first class. Well-appointed, comfortable, tastefully furnished and spacious rooms; a bathroom with a jacuzzi shower and a 'study' with a personal computer with internet access. The service was sensational. The students are very professional and attended to my every question with enthusiasm and efficiency. They take the care to remember your name and follow-up on any enquiries. They speak very good English (not common in Macau), and it was always a joy to see their friendly smiles. The hotel is not in the casino district (thank goodness) but there is easy access to the ferry terminal (and the free casino shuttles). The hotel provides free shuttles to three places of interest in Macau (two in the morning, one in the evening), and it is only a twenty minute walk to the ferry terminal anyway. (a bit harder coming back because of the hill, but it is really not too bad). The breakfast is gourmet standard with a wide variety of foods, in a beautiful, Portuguese colonial style breakfast room. There are lots of shops and restaurants withing a ten minute radius, including a great vegetarian one. For those who appreciate the finer things in life (at a budget price) and an authentic experience rather than a generic one, this is definitely the place to be. I also highly recommend the affliliated IFT restaurant next door (especially the dessert buffet!).
