A Little History:

Hotel Lisboa is the landmark of Macau. It is an iconic resort casino destination, sort of like the Flamingo in Vegas. Casino Lisboa, which looks remarkably like the old Sands Casino tower in Vegas, is owned by Dr. Stanley Ho's SJM. Casino Lisboa opened in 1971.

Hotel Rooms:

Casino Lisboa's hotel offers 1,000 rooms and suites at very competitive prices. All the rooms have been recently renovated. The original round 12 story, 270 room hotel tower was built in 1970. A second 270 room hotel building was built in 1991. Even though the grand hotel is quite old, the rooms have been continually upgraded and are very very sharp. Deluxe accommodations come with free minibar and free pay per view movies, including recent releases and a decent collection of Western and Asian porn.

The rooms feature high speed internet (free), flat screen TV, turn down service at 6pm every night, a beautifully refurbished bathroom, safe, shoe polish, slippers & robes, toothbrushes, shaving kits, a crazy electronic shower with body spray, jacuzzi tub, shower wand, rain shower head and an in-shower radio.

Room rates are about 1/2 of what you'll pay at StarWorld, Wynn Macau, Grand Lisboa and MGM Grand Macau... it's a great value. Room service kicks ass too.


Casino Lisboa has many dining options including Robuchon a Galera -French cuisine presented by legendary Chef Joel Robuchon, Noite e Dia - dinner buffet, Portas do Sol - Chinese Dim Sum, New Furusato - Japanese, Gallery Lounge - bar, Wine - you guessed it, vino and a lot of it. Wine has a tremendous wine selection - a must for wine aficionados.

The Casino:

Casino Lisboa is crowded, smoky, dense and noisy, possibly because it is such a small room. The drink service features juice, coffee, water, tea and some white bread sandwiches with the crusts cut off - all complimentary. Be sure to wash your hands after leaving this joint and playing here as the Chinese have very different standards regarding hand to nose to mouth contact then folks from the West do. Thats not to say they're gross, but they like picking their noses a lot.

Casino Games Offered:

Casino Lisboa has one of the most expansive, densely packed casinos in Macau despite its being one of the oldest joints in town. They offer Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack, Fantan, Cussec, SicBo, FanTan, Mahjong, Paigow, Slots and electronic baccarat and poker tables.

Rate and Review This Resort:


★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

Hotel Lisboa is a hotel casino resort that has been plucked, pickled and perfectly preserved in 1973. The rooms are funky, yet spotless. The casino, lived in. The patrons are equally so. Wondrous. Weird.

★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

Looks a hell of a lot better when I saw it in 2000. Very sedate and Chinese (dare I say foriener suspicous). Mostly old loyal fans of the place who were born when fire was discovered.

One think has not changed over the years. Hookers still roam the halls in packs looking for fresh meat.
