We spent some time at the Galaxy recently and were quite happy with our visit there. It is similar to the Venetian in that it is huge, has lots of shopping and restaurants, hotels, entertainment and large casino.
We ate lunch at the mid-range, Spaghetti House and were quite surprised and pleased with our meal there. We were also pleased to find a movie cinema on the Galaxy grounds, although we didn't catch a movie this time. They also had two interesting shows, the Wishing Crystals near the bus terminal at the end of the East Promenade and the Fortune Diamond show near the main complex lobby. These were similar to the Tree of Prosperity and Dragon Fortune shows at the Wynn as well as the Vquarium and Dragon Treasure shows at the City of Dreams, making some light entertainment for families.
We also found a rather large casino that was much less crowded than the Venetian, something we felt a bit relieved about as the swarming crowds there have become a bit intolerable for us at this point.
Overall, we felt the Galaxy was doing well for having just opened up last summer. It looks nice inside and from what we experienced, the main facilities are up and running just fine. Making this a worthy place to consider staying while in Macau or even to visit if you are a guest at a different hotel in the Macau peninsula or on the Cotai Strip.
