“Decent Hotel right across the Grand Galaxy Hotel”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The Pousada Marina Infante Hotel is fairly decent. Well appointed rooms and a spacious bath room which are all worth the average pricing. What made our 2-night stay better is that when the hotel failed to give us room with a view of the Galaxy hotel which we requested upon booking, they upgraded us to a bigger room which comfortably fit me and 2 other friends.

Breakfast was OK too. I appreciated the mix of Asian and continental items, and enjoyed the automatic pancake maker, but hopefully they change some of the offerings daily.

The best part of the hotel is being positioned right across the luxurious Galaxy hotel. You just need to cross the street and literally jump over the fence to enjoy the amenities of Galaxy, from the free shuttle (which you can take right from the airport) and wifi, to the amazing attractions and restaurants inside.

We spent a night here and thought that for the price we paid, the deal was decent value.

The room itself is clean and comfortable, although it does look rather dated. We had a good night's sleep in comfortable beds and the breakfast the following morning was more than ample. Staff were friendly and polite.

Our view was of the huge Galaxy complex on the other side of the road, which was very bright and lit up at night. The other side of the hotel looked onto mainland China.

Some of the facilities were not operating. We saw signs for a bar, but saw that it was closed, likewise a sign for a casino, but there was none. Our taxi driver had no idea what we were talking about when we asked to go to Pousada Marina Infante, so we just said Galaxy. However, when we got near Galaxy and then pointed at the Pousada, the driver then said he knew it as a different name.

The only real negative is the location, as it is just near the tacky Galaxy complex and downtown Macau needs a taxi to get to.

Thus overall, good value, but if we go back for a night to Macau again, we'll make sure we stay more centrally.

The hotel had a great view of Galaxy Hotel. It was near most areas, however, the shuttle service could be better. We stayed in a triple-sharing room and the room was big enough to accommodate all three of us. However, the sink took too long to drain. Even the bathroom took too long to drain. The breakfast was okay. For a city of casinos, this hotel did not have one.

The location is perfect just across galaxy hotel and shopping mall. You can use the extensive free transfers of galaxy hotel , venetian, city of dreams and cotai sands central which are all within the vicinity. You can also avail of there transfer going back to airport for free. The non smoking room we stay on the 9th floor is very clean and nice, very much better than its exterior and lobby. Room comes with lcd tv, ref, comfortable king size bed, very clean toilet with toiletries and bathtub. The buffet breakfast is also very filing and nice choices for asian. With the room rate only 1/3 of its neighboring hotel even with no free wifi, it is still my choice on my future stay.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Galaxy hotel have a very nice view at night.

I traveled with friends to Macau last July 2011 for 4D/3N. We booked this online and got a pretty good deal on hotel accommodations. The stay comes with free buffet meals. Mostly the food offered/served was american or chinese breakfasts.

The hotel is just a 8-10 minutes away from the airport and it is also near the mainland border. It was not a surprise when during our stay, a lot of mainland chinese were also at the hotel.

The hotel is next to the Galaxy. The hotel shuttle services are very limited. It only offers for a free "timed" shuttle to the port. However, this does not matter since the Galaxy is just across the street, and it offers a lot of free shuttle buses to the different tourist sites in the city and within Taipa.

Their rooms are quite big and clean. We stayed in a deluxe twin room. Their bathroom is pretty decent and they offer daily cleaning services as well. From our bedroom, it's a delight to see mainland china.

The staff is generally friendly except the ones at the dining area.

Their casino wasn't operational during our stay.

Generally, our stay was worthwhile as we didn't pay much for transportation within Macau. We were able to see sites on our own via shuttle buses of other nearby hotels and just walk back to our hotel. The hotel was pretty decent and presentable.

Overall, my friends and I had a pleasant stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose non-smoking rooms.

Stayed there with mom and a friend overnight sometime in mid Feb 2012.
I was expecting this was the same hotel that Trip Advisor ranked #1 for Macau hotels. Big disappointment. It was a different Pousada Hotel, didnt realize there were several Macau Hotels that start with the word Pousada, lol...

Hotel lobby is large and appear clean. Lobby staff spoke few English words enough to communicate with them. It was disappointing to learn there is no free wifi available. Interest access came with a price depending on hours of usage. Checked out the gym, it had 2 old probably working treadmills and 2 that are out of order.. There is at least weighted rack of dumbells and one multistation machine. It was good enough, i guess.

Room was decent sized, nothing opulent or extravagant. We had a nice opulent view however of the Galaxy Hotel. Boy, wished I stayed there, haha...

They provided free shuttle service for us to Venetial Hotel. However told us we were on our own coming back. They mentioned taking a taxi cab on our way back to our hotel. When we left Venetian Hotel that night to go back to Pousada Marina Hotel, we were refused service by multiple taxis. I guess because it was close probably less than 5 minute drive from Venetian, but my mom is on the older side and was concerned for her. We had no choice but to walk towards our hotel on this chilly windy night. We took a short cut to Galaxy Hotel to get warmed up. Beautiful hotel with the smell of Hermes cologne emanating throughout the casino. Amazing.. We found our way back to our hotel and called it a night.

Breakfast buffet was decent, good selection of FREE breakfast food, coffee, juice. Coffee was good and so were the bacon and cured ham.

Overall, the hotel was decent and ok. Would I stay here if I came back to Macau? Heck no.. I wanna check out what the other Hotels have to offer... Having to pay for wifi is a big no-no for me...
