I'm giving this only 4 star because of location and insufficient shuttle from Taipa ferry to hotel. When we got off the ferry and looked for the Grand Waldo shuttle, we were pointed to different direction and finally the Galaxy allowed us to use their shuttle. However, it is quite a trek to walk from the Galaxy to Grand Waldo, even though technically it's across the street. It's a good 10-15 minutes walk. Otherwise I really enjoyed my stay here with my mother. The front desk was professional and courteous. The room is spacious and clean. The shower has great water pressure! Free internet service, buffet breakfast included every morning - though the hostess was probably the least friendly person we encountered. Buffet breakfast was decent, with a congee station, a noodle station, omelet station, some pastries, salads, cereal. It was fine for us. I have to give a shout out to Oscar at concierge desk. He was very kind and friendly. He booked our tickets to Cirque du Soleil show, and gave us his cell phone in case we ran into any problems. No problems at all. When we got on line, there was actually an agent standing nearby and pull us off line to give us our tickets. We actually purchase the lowest priced ticket 388MOP and the seats were fabulous. The show was the usual Cirque show, did not disappoint. For getting around town, we used the taxis and it was inexpensive and sufficient. I would definitely stay here again, rather than at the larger casino which is noisy and smelly.
