Stayed here for a couple of nights in September. The room was a decent size, clean, comfortable and quiet, with free wi-fi. It was a bit of a walk to the centre - 15 mins uphill on the way back was a bit hard going in the heat but ok. The hotel does a shuttle bus to the border with China which is very handy. We saw the "disco" from the street but there was no sign of any of the patrons in the hotel!

Guia is located away from the center but very close to the lighthouse (which is worth visiting, especially in the mornings for some fresh air, to get some good views of Macau and also exercise!)

Another aspect which is different - there is a huge mirror which you will have to bear with while using the toilet!!!!! . the mirror is on the back of the bathroom door. Felt quite weird.

Other than the issue with the mirror and the charging for water bottles, it is a decent hotel. Good rooms, clean, free wifi,

We did not go to the playmate club at the bottom level. And it was not bothering either as it has a separate entrance (you can go from within the hotel too).

The staff speak some English but many are not proficient in guiding people locally.
The hotel provides a free transfer to the Ferry terminal (not from the Ferry to hotel).

For those who are looking for some local food, take the road going down from the playmate club entrance until you reach the end - take a right - there is a nice place. The lady at the counter spoke English too.We could not find any other place to eat near the hotel other than the hotel restaurant.

Room Tip: try getting one with view of the lighthouse

its not so convenient considering the hotel is located on top of mountain, so u might possible need to take taxi always as its quite tiring to walk up the hill. the plus point are modern hotel, facing the city of macau, and next to the hotel, u can walk up the the hilltop and able to see the whole scenery of macau!

I stayed here with my mother on our trip to Macau. I'm American but live in China, so was comfortable staying in a more Chinese style hotel. The room was nice and decently spacious, the bathroom was very modern, and the hotel location was quiet. It is definitely in the historic part of town, so it is not a good option if your goal is to hit the casinos a lot. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest casino shuttle. The hotel does provide a shuttle, however, to the ferry station. From there you can catch a shuttle to any casino in town. The cab ride down to Cotai was about 15 minutes and cost USD$12 or so. We went to the House of Dancing Water show at the Venetian and it was fabulous. An easy cab ride from this hotel. You can walk to the historic sights from this hotel in about 10 minutes. Starbucks and some restaurants are also a quick walk away. The staff were very friendly, but their English was limited so I had to speak in Chinese. I think someone who really needed help planning their trip and who didn't speak Chinese might have a problem with this hotel. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

The hotel has a great location which is just behind the city centre but it is away from all the old monuments or cathedrals areas. You have to walk a fair bit into the city centre so that you can get to the see the cathedrals. The city centre is vibrant and has lots to see. The hotel itself is very pretty and the room is very old school portugese style. I will recommend friends to stay there but do avoid talking to the hotel receptionists because they are quite unhelpful and inexperienced. They even asked us to catch a taxi to the hotel from the ferry terminal as their pick up bus has missed us the first time. Not a good enough service i guess. By the way, the hotel has a nightclub downstair...

Nice, clean rooms in a not too big hotel. I ordered thru hotels.com for only 66$ a night.
They were generous with early check in, and late check out.
AC is great. There is also a night club (Chinese brothel apparently) at the first floor.

Unfortunately we did not know about the free ferry shuttle, but we were surprised that the taxi ride to Guia was so short. We were greeted very friendly at the door, staff at reception unfortunately spoke very poor English so the check in did take a while and our questions were not all answered. Our room was pretty, and we loved the bathroom incl a tub! (We've been travelling for a while and we had to get used to not having a proper bathroom most of the time). There's free Wi-Fi in the room which is great (there is also free Wi-Fi in most parts of Macau!)
Walking down town to the historical part is no problem. The shopping area starts like 5 mins walk away from the hotel, main sights are about 15 mins on foot...
Breakfast was not included and we did not eat in the hotel.
Defenitely go to Taipa, where we had a really lovely afternoon out!!!
