I stayed at Bayou Lagoon Park Resort on the 5th and 6th of Jan 2013. I was a tad hesitant after reading the reviews of this place. I booked it anyway, with low expectations, but it did not disappoint! The check in and check out was fast and smooth and the guy at the reception was really nice.
Bayou looks more like a condominium more than a hotel. I booked the two bedroom apartment and was given the one on the 6th floor. The apartment was clean and had a spacious living room but it only had a two seater sofa in front of the television. So we just used the dining room chairs. Not really a problem. There is a balcony connecting to the living room which had a nice unobstructive view. The kitchenette was just a sink and a kettle with 2 teacups and spoons.There was no mini fridge (for those who requires one). Since we had a toddler along, the kettle was pretty much the most important thing we need from the kitchen. The apartment had 2 bathrooms (one in the master bedroom and one near the kitchenette).
The swimming pool (water park) did not disappoint although it can get quite crowded in the morning. We had a great time playing with the water slides.
Melaka city center was about a half hour drive from the hotel. For those who are not driving, the hotel has a few shuttle service to some tourist attractions. Ask the reception for more information.
My only qualm is that the hotel was abit difficult to find but the locals were really nice. When we asked for directions from passing by motorist, they actually showed us the way all the way to the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise. But if you have an updated GPS system in the car, it should not be a problem. I would definitely stay here again for a short weekend getaway.
