Didn’t know what to expect, from travel guides and pics it was promising old quarter area. Found it small, crowded, full with tourist shops, food stools and cookies shops. Overall impression is not more than just ok

I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of this village and ambling around the many laneways. It's best to avoid the main road to avoid the tourist streets. The back streets are sublime and needs a half day or more just to explore.

Hi all, I brought my pram (with my 3-year old boy) along to Taipa Village. Survived and it wasn't that bad. Cobblestones and slopes are a challenge, but we managed to see all of the village. Hope that serves as a gauge, if... More

Generally most of the hotels have free shuttles, so I guess Conrad will also have, just ask where they go and the timetable
