Hotel Rooms:

Venetian Macao feature 3,000 suites in three categories. Royale Suites feature king sized beds, italian marble bathrooms and sunken living rooms 750 sq. ft..

Reader Ratings and Reviews of Venetian Macao:

Rate and Review This Resort:


★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

The Venetian Macao is a faithful replica of the Venetian Las Vegas, which is a replica of Venice, Italy. Sort of. People familiar with either of these will be amused by the touches of Chinese decor in the rooms, furnishings and public spaces. Amusing.

The hotel was great. Good service, comfortable stay. The casino is a behemoth of epically massive proportions. Huge. There is nothing intimate about it. Welcome to Cotai.

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

EXTREMELY comfortable beds; honestly, these beds were the best I've ever slept in. The rooms are huge, too, and have an excellent price/size ratio. There are some great restaurants here (Roka being a fave). Finally, the place is a giant monument to terrible taste (in the good way).

But the quality is inconsistent. The casino is huge but relatively average with no complimentary drink service (you have to go to the Plaza at the Four Seasons to get that). When I was there, the minimums were higher than the Wynn (!). Also, you can see the rooms are luxurious in a somewhat superficial way; electrical cords are not hidden, for instance.

That said, if you want something with everything under one roof, extremely comfortable beds, and excellent variety, this is a good choice.

★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

A ho-hum blown-up copy of the original. The size of the place is a definite downside (wear comfortable shoes). Rooms are a bit pricey considering the competition. On the other hand the hotel guest pool area gets a definite thumbs up. The place is also saved by a Fatburger chain location (one of the few places in asia with decent onion rights) and an impeccable Morton's steakhouse.


The casino floor space is slowly filling up with slots and people, still empty in some places.

Place is also getting more and more "professional discreet entertainment" on the casino floor, if you get my drift.


Was douche-bag central in March 2009. Way to many gwei's.
