Horrible experience at A'Famosa

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 21, 2012

We booked the family special for a studio. When we arrived they put us up in Condotel D'Savoy in Tower 1 (Room 1806), which was run down, dirty and smelling bad. I went to the front desk to inform them that I was not happy with this room, and Mr Raj put us in 2B/ Room 3106 afterward. Upon checking into the room we realised that the entire bathroom in the master bedroom was wet and there was a plumbing leak. There were also rat droppings on the floor of the kitchen.
I immediately went to the front desk and checked out. This was the shortest stay I have ever had at ay hotel - a total of 2 hours.

This experience cost me MYR473.30. It was a horrible experience and I cannot believe that this resort is allowed to sell shoddy accommodation to unknowing customers.

This place is not a resort it is a SLUM.

Unique Quality: Nothing is good about this place, it is a slum

i did not like what i have seen there at all.
for the following reasons:
A) it is a style of bungalows, and there is a shuttle to pick people from their houses and drive them to the breakfast hall. You need to wait it for no less then 10-15 minutes.
B) the bath curtain which suppose to be white is yellow. As well as the toilet which is half white and half yellow( and it is not working_ called the reception to fix it and instead of fixing the handle they have glued it.
C) the pool's flour was scratched, insects and leaves were all over the surface of the pool. The water smells bad. we waited for an hour and then they brought us towels that are dirty. We had to call the reception to send us clean ones.
D) the TV have 5 channels only.
e)All the furniture are scratched and looks horrible.
Check out the link.
to is really far from the town( about a 20-30 mins drive).
F) the food does not tast good at all( and it is expensive).however, you find your self with no option but to order their food because you don't want to go to the downtown which is far away.
you can check out the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnOuq_7Y7A4
i am really sorry that the vedio did not focused on the bathroom and how dirty it is.how old the furniture is.
how dirty the small pool inside, with a dead fish inside it. cockroches on the surface.and dead plants on the small garden inside the house.* in this vedio the garden was green but ours was brown.

A Resort with Your own Swimming Pool

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 22, 2007

If you're in Melaka and you're with both your family and extended family, the A'Famosa Resort is one place that you can consider booking. However, the resort is no where near the Melaka Town (It takes 30 minutes to get to town), but what it promises you is a nice and undisturbed location where you can really just relax.

Unique Quality: We booked the Bungalow unit that came with four bedrooms. These bungalows come with their own swimming pools, which we so gladly use. You can choose the bungalow with either three, four or five bedrooms.

But if you're looking for a resort with top-class amenities, then this is not the place you should be. Though there is a swimming pool, it is not totally clean. Leaves and small insects beset the pool. The first thing you'd need to do is to get the front desk to get the pool cleared up. Also, the rooms and toilets are not world class. So if you can bear with average facilities, this bungalow is still an ok place to stay.

The sheltered carpark can only take in two cars, which was ok as my family travelled in two cars.

Directions: Exit at Alor Gajah Toll and look out for the signs pointing you towards the resort.

Animal Exploitation At A Famosa Resort

by written on March 1, 2007

Recently, local Malaysian newspapers highlighted the plight of Amid, a malnourished elephant calf which was believed to be captured and sold to A Famosa Resort. Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) enforcement director Misliah Mohamad Basir revealed that the resort did not have a permit to keep Amid. The calf was inadequately cared for, did not have enough to eat and was improperly tied up. When confiscated, Amid was a heart-wrenching sight with his vertabrae jutting out and the clear outline of his ribcage showing under his hide.

2 years ago, the same resort was found to have illegally acquired 6 Sumatran orang utans. The orang utans were forced to wear clothes and perform shows for the amusement of tourists. The primates were later seized by enforcement officers and returned to Sumatra early 2006.

I believe we should boycott and not visit or stay at this resort, which has been found to abuse and exploit wild animals.

It's actually a function/event...big one caused we had almost 260 participants... We stay at the villa area and renting 23 vllas... the villa areas are dark...they have street lights but it was not on...the room was terrible...

One of our participants feedback " the toilet in our villa should be more cleaner, the tiles are quite old & yellow"

That was not all....i find it not safe...i lost some valuable things at the villa too...there is no sign of breaking in or entering....hmmm...

The managment was also very rude and not responsible...i never encounter to such rude hotel before..

A rather disappointing place

3 families and 1 adult went for a vacation during the Vesak Day weekend of 12 -14 May 06. We booked a 4-bedroom bungalow with pool at the A Famosa Resort.

Accomodations are comfortable but is showing its age. Some doors have holes in them which might be due to "rough guests" from the past.

My bedroom is weird. It cannot accomodate 2 large queen beds (yes they were queen beds) unless you re-arrange the furniture a little. This had to be done so that my bedroom door can close. What irked me was that housekeeping moved them back to the original positions while we were out leading back to the situation where you can't close the door.

The pool, yes we did have a pool, was filled with lots of dead critters of all kinds from multisegmented insects to amphibians. The pool guys came on the second day to clean them out. FYI, the multisegmented insects were millipedes curled up dead at the bottom of the pool. The pool water is not chlorinated. They used the water from the garden hose tap to fill it up.

Driveway is quite small. Only 2 cars can be sheltered at once leaving a 3rd or 4th car braving the elements. Not so good. Its not the cars that matter, it is the occupants running in and out of the car if there is rain.

The resort is an integrated resort boasting lots of themed parks like the Water World, Cowboy Town and Animal Safari. I will touch on this later.

Food is not that great and expensive. Since most families come here by private transport, I suggest you take your private transport to places like Kampung Alor Gajah, Melaka or Seremban for food.

Unique Quality: It is an integrated resort.

Directions: Along the North-South Expressway, take the Alor Gajah exit to get there. The signs will point the way.

The A Famosa Resort is amazing especially if you are travlling with kids.. It has enough to keep you kids occupied for at least 2 days. They have the largest water theme park. Animal Show, Bird Show, Elephant Show, Go Karting , Cowboy Town , Parade in the evening with fire eaters . Lots and lots and lots of stuff to do . If you are a golfer then you have one more activity at A Famosa - GOLF . The rooms are basic nothing fancy . Service is good . The food is good too.

Unique Quality: THE BEST WATER PARK !!

Villas with your own pool

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 16, 2005

Basically it's like renting a house ....complete with 2/3 bedrooms, kitchen, plus a small swimming pool, with your own private parking space. It's at least a half an hour ride to the city though, with all the heavy traffic.

family fun accomodation

by written on May 24, 2003

the reason we stayed here is that there was a promotion and the rates were extremely cheap! only rm30 per person per nite for a hotel room with all the facitlities.. this place is pretty nice for a family outing with lots of theme parks such as water world, animal safari and cowboy town.. if you're plannning to stay here, make sure you have your own transport as malacca town is more than half hour's drive away..

Unique Quality: there are lots of things to do here if you're coming with the whole family with kids.. pretty entertaining..

Directions: take the alor gajah-tampin exit along the southbound highway from kuala lumpur.. it's only about 10 mins drive from there with lots of signboards to guide you along the way
