“Glitz, Glamour & great looking rooms!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Good:
-One of the only hotels that offers you more than 4 different (FREE) shuttle buses routes.
-Walking distance to major attractions.
-Plenty of eateries nearby.
-Grand in-house casino.
-Buffet dinner is first class!

Bad:
-Lobby is too messy because too many tourists.
-Room rates maybe expensive, but after seeing the comfortable rooms, you will find your money's worth it!

Stayed at this central-located hotel on Macau island. Most impressed by their counter services and the welcoming protocol where at every location like entrances whether the main or side doors you will see a smiley face of a lanky and well dressed lady or ladies to welcome you. It gives you a personal sense of importance and the hotel's respect of your presence. The room on the 29th floor where we stayed has a splendid view of the waterfront and the room is clean and big by most standard. The hotel size and appearance may not be grand compared to larger layouts on the outside but it still command an ambience of grandness inside and most of all the presence of warmth when one enters the lobby. Will stay again in this hotel when I am in Macau again.

StarWorld hotel is part of the Galaxy Entertainment Group, so its sister company is the famous Galaxy Macau (the huge white castle) on the Cotai Strip, as well as the Grand Waldo, which is right next to Galaxy Macau. President, Rio and Waldo are the sister companies on the Macau side.

Please keep in mind that the country Macau has three parts: Macau peninsula attached to China at the Zhuhai border, Taipa and Coloane. Cotai Strip is the reclaimed land in between CO-loane and TAI-pa, get it?

StarWorld hotel is really good value. Its food outlets are reasonably priced. Inagiku has great Japanese lunch sets averaging MOP140. I would pass on the raw items as you can get better quality elsewhere. Laurel is quite good for dim sum, but remember to book a reservation, as it's a popular lunch place. There's also a buffet on the 16th floor, but I'd pass. If you're really into buffets, go check out the one at Grand Lisboa, which is about a 10 mins walk away.

StarWorld has the Whiskey Bar on the 16th floor. Currently it's under renovation. Hopefully when they open again, they will still have the happy hour open bar for MOP128. Great value! There's also the lobby lounge for drinks.

As for gaming, baccarat and sic bo are the games of choice here. StarWorld caters to the Chinese and you'd rarely find westerners here, unless you're on the 3rd floor at the Poker King Club room. This is one of the only poker rooms in Macau. The other two are Wynn and Venetian poker rooms. And at the time of this review, PokerStars has announced that they will open a poker room at City of Dreams by mid-April. This Poker King Club room is home to the Big Game, which is apparently the world's largest cash game, where blinds go as high as HKD50K/100K. I've personally seen Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, Sam Trickett, Johnny Chan and Andrew Robl playing in this nosebleed game on various occasions.

It's located right next to the Wynn and L'Arc. It's directly across from the President and about a 20 mins walk to Senado Square. If you want to check out Galaxy Macau, just hop on the frequent shuttle bus.

Hope this helps. If you need any specific info, please feel free to contact me.

3rd stay in this hotel, I'm not a gambler so lets talk about the hotel. rooms are clean and large for the price you pay. Location is perfect for me, lets say "it's the best" for any menu you want. Food? Attractions? Heritages? Fun? Casino?
Everything is perfect at this hotel with unbelievable prices if you book through ASIATRAVEL.com.
Hundreds of spread on breakfast, in-room dining was fantastic with lots to choose, just a walk to any location around Maccau. service is great and just try to walk for your own health!!!!

The magnificent lobby clouded with all the tall lady receptionists ( specially selected with height), give you a warm welcome. A small stage with light music and dancing show provides a "lively" environment let you fell easy when checking in.

The standard king bed room is well fitted and sized. I love the big-size shower bed. I shall give excellent mark for everything except the "bottles" of bath gel, shampoo, conditioner, you can hardly find the right bottle as the wording is too samll and every bottles looks virtulally the same. Either the wording be larger or the botlle caps be of different colour. They can also improve the quality of bath towel to a softer feel.

Room Tip: Higher floor room enjoy a better view of Macau

The location is great, although kind of noisy outside, the room is quite. The sea view is amazing. Lobby staff is quite nice. Also I love the performance in lobby, ladyboys are awesome! And I can find different restaurants around the hotel.

Superb hotel in an excellent location on the Macau peninsula. We had an executive room on the 30th floor with fantastic views overlooking Lisboa and the Macau tower. Although this room is slightly more expensive than standard rooms, it was worth it. The glass window between the bathroom and bedroom meant you coud lie in the bath and still enjoy the view!
Breakfast was excellent....large choice at the buffet as well as omlettes etc cooked in front of you while you wait.
The hotel offers a free bus service to its sister hotel, Galaxy on the island. Both this and the Venetian are fantastic hotels but are huge and personally we felt that they were too big and impersonal but well worth a visit.
Recommendatioon - spend the evening at the bar in Sands, just a short walk from Starworld.
Once again, a fantastic hotel in a great location - wouldnt hesitate to recommend it.

Karen

Room Tip: Go for an executive room if you can and request a high floor with a view over the Macau tower.
