Architecture was brilliant. Lighting was marvelous. The "crystal show" that happens in the fountain situated in the middle of the hotel was spectacular. Show lasts for 15 minutes, we caught the 7pm show.

Dined at The Spaghetti House. Pasta was awesome. We were personally toured around the hotel via their hotel shuttle.

I had so much fun during my stay, even met new people who made our visit a lot more exciting. We'll be back!

Stayed: February 2012, travelled as a couple

First the bad - the design of the Lobby. Tacky. Gaudy. Loud. Gamblers abound. (hey it is a casino afterall)
Go pass all that, excellent service at check in (if you avoid the peak hours), the room was great.
The King size bed was comfortable, everything was spotless.
Free Wifi ALL OVER building. Loved that.
Can't complain much about the room.

I stayed here for a night, primary because my regular hotel was not avaliable.

Check-in : This was slow. Apparently there was a computer glitch, and the reservation systems were taking a longer time to response. Not sure if the pre-allocate rooms, but the girl took about 5 minutes to find me a room which I had a confirmed booking from the hotel's own booking site. There was a bit of a walk from the reception to the hotel lifts. You had to walk and turn off into the shopping area before reaching the hotel lift lobbies. There are different lift lobbies for high floor rooms and low floor rooms.

Shopping : Extremely limited number of shops. Hardly can be called shopping. More like a hotel shopping arcade.
Visit Venetian if you want to shop. Or Wynn, or City of Dreams if designer is what you want.

Gambling : Expensive for the casual player. Most tables are HKD 300 and above Cross the road at the Banyan Tree to the Grand Waldolf to find HKD 100 tables.

Food : The chain boasts of a food paradise. I think that is overated. There are decent food places no doubt, but nothing superior to what the other resorts can offer (eg Venetian next door also has good places to eat, including a Mortons). Other casinos like the Grand Lisboa even have michellin star resturants.

Room : Room was decent, bed comfortable. Refreshments free. Nothing outstanding compared to other hotels.

The Wave pool was closed for maintenence while I was there.

Basically, I felt there wasn't much to do at the hotel. Its main non-gambling entertainment would be the outdoor pools (not usable in winter) and a cinema.

Won't stay there again.

Could not really fault Galaxy Hotel. From free transfers to/from airport or harbour and also free transfers to/from various other hotels and city destinations for it's guests. The hotel foyer was absolutely stunning and the rooms were large in size, very clean, comfortable bed and beautiful. I had a smoking room and it never smelt like smoke in there at all....don't know how they do that but was very impressed. The wave pool was a lot of fun and the heated smaller pool was also great for when it was not as hot outside. The casino was huge and really well layed out. For those that smoke, your allowed to smoke in the casino....YAY! The hotel also had lots of restaurants inside, ranging from Asian cuisine to Portuguese Cuisine and even a McDonald's for those on the run! Along with clothes shops, nik nak shops etc. The staff were fantastic. Very helpful and friendly. I walked away from this place with an overwhelming experience and I will be back again soon. Absolutely loved it!

Just a short free shuttle bus ride from Taipa ferry terminal the Galaxy is located close to the Venetian and also the City fo Dreams hotels (Hard Rock, Crown etc.). Its huge with restaurants, shops, gym, massive casino, outdoor pools/jacuzzis (wave pool is currently closed for maintenance and reopens March or April 2012 I think). Service from all staff isvery good. Twin rooms are large with flatscreen TV, free minibar (sodas and beer only and small Pringles and noodle pot), robes, safe, aircon, free wifi, easy chairs, bathroom with large walk in shower and separate full size bathtub with window to bedroom (blind can be pulled down if you need privacy). The 'levitating diamond' operates every 30 minutes in the main lobby - its fun to watch. There is a variety of restuarants including Starbucks, MacDonlads, Spaghetti House and the Festiva buffet. The buffet is quite expensive but has a very good variety of food - book in advance; we couldn't get a table on a wednesday night. There are a variety of free shuttle buses to take you to a variety of places including both Macau ferry ports and Macau City. I really liked this hotel and I am very likely to return.
