thankfully, we didn't have to pull out our luggage from the carousel. just make sure you have your luggage stub--present it when you buy your turbojet ticket and they will load your maleta onto the boat for you. we managed to book a hotel online--based on price and how pretty it looked, we booked lan kwai fong hotel. yes, they're also in macau!
that's the reception counter above where you check in and we love this mosaic wall below, which reminds us of the missoni fabric on our kartell chairs!
