We stayed 2 nights here and were very pleased with the hotel. We had a huge room (supposed to be "standard") with high quality fixtures and bedding. Tea making facilities provided. There is an extensive choice at buffet breakfast. There is a good sized pool (open sides but covered roof) at the top of the hotel and a small gym.
It's near the ferry terminal and close enough to walk to Fishermen's Wharf which is a sort of theme park with European style buildings and restaurants and shops. There are also plenty of cheaper Macao/Portuguese restaurants nearby if you think the hotel is a bit expensive. We did not use the Casino but it's not intrusive unlike some of the ones in Las Vegas.
Internet was very expensive (so often is in hotels - why?) and we used an internet cafe in the town instead. The main drawback is that it's quite a long walk from here to the historic centre of Macau but taxis and buses are cheap.
We really enjoyed Macao and loved its European/Chinese fusion both culturally and culinary. We also found it very cheap for local shopping when compared with mainland China and in particular Hong Kong. It seemed very safe and easy to get around in
