We took the ferry from HK to Macau in 1st class and it was worth the little extra as there is free drinks/noodles offered but more importantly you disembark first so you can get through immigration and on the free bus to the Venetian fairly quickly.
Check in was very smooth, no queues!
The rooms are very spacious, well-appointed and offer everything you need from minbar, TV, Iron, sofa, comfy bed etc.
Bathroom was massive with good power shower and toiletries however you need to be short if you want under it without bending!
Pools were good (4 of them) with a decent selection of poolside drinks/cocktails/snacks. One of the pools is for adults only which was a good touch if you just wanted to chill without screaming weans running around.
Breakfast – Café Deco was average, nothing special. McSorleys was much better standard and value.
Food & Drink – Plenty of options. I would highly recommend 2 places 1. Portofino (Italian food). This place is near the pools without inside and alfresco dining. Very good pastas, pizza & bread. I would suggest you try the Portuguese Red wine, it was very nice. 2. Fogo Samba (Brazilian BBQ). Make sure you go here hungry as you have a buffet for appetizers and starts plus all the meat you can think of and eat which just keeps on coming until you’re full. The Portuguese Albarino was a great find and reasonably priced.
Evening Entertainment – Mcsorleys is ok for pub grub and to meet up and start your night. Bar Florian was good if you like to watch ballroom dancers giving it a bit of yeeha while you drink away. To end the night Bellini Bar is where most people pushed on through to as they have live entertainment in the form a large band with many singers. There was also a dance floor in there which pretty much filled up until the end of the evening.
Outside the Venetian – on one evening we went to Antonio’s http://antoniomacau.com/ to have a Portuguese meal. Highly recommend this place. Good food, service, wine and comes in around $3,000 for two people.
I felt that the Venetian with all its bells and whistles was good value and great if you want to get away from HK without flying but still want to capture that “I’m on holiday feeling”.
Top tip – make sure any time you leave your room you take everything thing you need as it’s a massive complex and not great for popping back to the room.
