5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We enjoyed our stay here! The infinity pool was nice, it got a great view of Malacca river! The breakfast was amazing! I loved my egg benedicts! The room had a very elegant Hispanic feel and we thought the welcome tea was a nice touch! I would recommend everyone to stay here :)

Clean. Convenient. Nice rooms. But it didn't quite blow me away.. It is what you would expect from a good hotel but without that extra touch that would have made it excellent.

You'd get a comfortable stay that's for sure but I would rather book at the Majestic and deal with a little walk to Chinatown.

My family and I have just returned from a lovely relaxing weekend at this well run resort.
We booked Casa del Rio because of its location and facilities and were not disappointed.
Everything went seamlessly well. Reservations were prompt and accurate, check in personalised and friendly, accommodation extremely comfortable and without fault, and the staff extremely friendly and courteous.
Walking distance to everywhere of interest yet serenly located on the riverside with tranquil views over the river estury.
A real gem of a find in Melaka and one we shall defineatly return to.
Special tahnks to Sharon the Front Office Manager and Aarron the Hotel Manager.

My 85-year old parents and their helper together with my sister and I stayed here for 2 nights. I was really thankful for Reservations' Wendy Wee's assistance during the phone booking process. We decided that a handicap room with a connecting door to a regular room would suit our needs best.

I was a bit disappointed to find the handicap room's bathroom to be functional but too spartan for a hotel of this class. In view of the aging population worldwide, we hope more hotels can build beautiful bathrooms for the mobility impaired guest.

What we loved about the hotel was the balcony - we had Lago rooms with a limited view of the river. It was great enjoying fresh air at the balcony which was well fitted with comfortable furniture and an effective ceiling fan. It was also very pleasant to lounge around the lago area - there was ample seating which was sheltered and cooled by ceiling fans. For air con comfort, we could retreat to the library which had ample reading materials and coffee & tea. The hotel provided exactly the relaxed resort environment that we were looking for as mum had limited mobility and so dashing around sightseeing and shopping was out of the question.

While everything in our rooms were working we noticed that the water runoff at the sink was a bit slower than normal. As the sink did not clog we did not inform housekeeping or front desk.

As for room size, we would have liked a larger room but since we had to take a handicap room for my parents as the other rooms had steps here and there, we were constrained in our choice. Again, in view of the aging population, perhaps the hotel could review their design for their next major upgrading/renovation.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in!!! I brought my family here on a year end holiday just after our Singapore Christmas holiday, at first I was reluctant but the experience proved me wrong! My kids enjoyed their time in This hotel and demanded that they want to come to Melaka again! Thanks Casa staff for making us feel at home!

My family and I stayed here last month and this is the first time we came. It was great to find the hotel was so beautiful. The surrounding was nice as it is very near to the river and very calming. It is a good place to ease your mind. The hotel location is a good place to walk around too. The room we stayed is spectacular and the view from our room is great. Really love the balcony. My children really love the swimming pool too which located at the roof top. The decoration was specific and lovely not only the room but all around the hotel. The food was also nice and variety. The staffs are friendly and helpful as well. We will definitely come again next time.
