You may try a Hotel In Taipa. Something Western Hotel Taipa I think
Big room can accomodate 3 big beds. May cost about 1000MOP/nite

Yes, Metropark is rather convenient with free shuttle to ferry terminal.
Rate is about 450MOP. Alot of eateries around the hotel.
Room is clean but no free internet which is a practice in most Macau hotels

Just a gentle reminder for those who are going to Macau this week.
Temp is super cold. It is about 8 degrees this morning with strong wind.
Ensure sufficient clothing.
Some flt delays or canceled too.
