I Love This Sofitel Ponte 16 Hotel-Macau.
Once we entered the room, we were excited to see the river view (we were upgraded!), the elegant decoration and the spacious washroom. The curtain is very special although the light can get through it!
We had our breakfast outside the restaurant and facing the swimming pool. During the breakfast, the rain became heavier and the captain came to ask if we needed to move inside. We thanked him for so considerate but we preferred to stay outside! BTW, the food is good and there are many choices. The captain also allowed three of us (1 adult and 2 kids) to enjoy the 2 adults' breakfast without extra charges. The coffee is nice too but I think most of us could not complete the large pot of coffee!
In the second floor of the hotel, we visited the MJ Gallery and it was great. No entry fee and the hotel provided us a $50 coupon upon check-in for shopping inside the gallery. We bought a tee and playing card with $50 discount then!
Although the room is not so spacious as compare with other new hotel, we all like it very much and would visit this hotel again in future.
Positives: beautiful rooms and decent breakfast. Alfredo, the club floor concierge was brilliant at getting us a dinner reservation at a moment's notice at a great Portugese restaurant and even recommended us dishes to try and was very friendly and nice. He even checked up on us the next day to ask how it went. Thank you Alfredo!
Negatives: we checked in a few hours after official checkin time and our room was not ready and the hotel had the audacity to try to upsell us to another room despite our room not being available.
The hotel is well located for the historic sites but not for anything else. This is usually not an issue but in this case it is because taxis are very few and far between. The usual wait for a taxi is anything between 15-20mins+.
The elevators are a mess - very slow with long wait times as well, and we were only on the 8th floor.
No wifi in our room is another minor sticking point that I think 5 star hotels should have.
Thank you very much for your positive comments regarding the service you received from Alfredo in Club Sofitel.
We sincerely regret the lapse in service you encountered whilst a guest at Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us to continue to improve the service provided to our guests and we appreciate the time taken to share your comments.
We are thrilled to announce that within the next two months, Sofitel Macau is finalizing the installation of a wireless network that will provide free WIFI to all of its guests on premises. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future to benefit from this additional service.
Thank you again for your comments and feel free to address any further feedback or questions to our attention directly.
The outside is under construction, it really affects the outlook of the hotel. The swimming pool is very good for family. The buffet breakfast is not equivalent to a 5-stars hotel. The food is not enough in kind.
Stayed two nights in club room at non-smoking floor, and very enjoyed my stay. The king-size bed was comfortable, the room was quiet and had a nice ocean view. I liked the Hermes bath amenities, TV in bath room and automatic curtain.
The best part was the club lounge. The service quality of Club lounge was awesome and it was the best club lounge in my experience. Staff was very attentive, courteous, excellent in service and among them Gary was superb. I usually go out to try local restaurants for breakfast and evening beer, but I visited the lounge every morning/evening because this place was very nice and spoiled me. Only minor drawback was that there was no evening turndown on first night. When I visit Macau next time, I will definitely stay at this hotel and book club floor room again.
