“Far from the town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Pro's:
3 rooms with six beds, suitable for family and friend gathering.
Free six water tickets.
Water park is consider fun for kids
Free breakfast

Con's:
Far for everything; food and travel hot spots. You must have own transport.
Room wasn't clean enough
One of the water heater is not function but no one attended after complaint.
One of the window's lock is faulty and can become dangerous to kids. Again, no one attended after complaint.

I will look for better family hotel in Melaka in future.

I have mixed feelings about this place, I think the easiest way to review it is pro's & con's:

Pro's: really big room, nicely decorated, modern, clean and the bed was really comfy!

Con's: it was described as having a kitchen which was basically a fridge & kettle. The location was terrible, it was nowhere near central Melaka. The drains in the room didn't smell too pleasant. You cannot pay for anything on card, but there is no ATM either to take out cash. They advised there was no wifi in the room when actually there was. The staff could/would not help us when we wanted to get a bus to Melaka central. Most items in the shop either have no price on them or they have the wrong price so you end up paying more than expected at the till and the attitude of the younger woman in the shop was terrible. To sum up, never experienced poor customer service anywhere like this. A shame as the hotel has so much potential.

Booked this resort around 10 month before staying at it in July 2014.
Just before coming read many scathing reviews so when we turned up and had an enjoying stay we were quite surprised.
Stayed four nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Traveled with 2 adults and 2 children, boys aged 4 and 6.
The resort water park was great. Safe and clean. My boys loved it and spent hours each day swimming and going down the many slides. As guests at the resort we were able to use it as much as we liked whilst it was open between 9am and 7pm.
Staff at resort were friendly.
Rooms were basic and clean.
Food was average.
There was a shop which was good for snacks and drinks.
There is a bar open at night.
No babysitting facilities.
Only major concern whilst staying at the resort was the windows of the apartment on the 9th floor opened easily to a 9 story drop. Not great when staying with two young children. We tied the windows up closed with fishing wire and masking tape :-)
Also watch out for the jaws of death lifts. Doors shut quickly. Only worked it out on last day that you had to hold door open button till everyone was out of the lift.
Whilst staying in Melaka we visited the Reptile and Butterfly sanctuary, Botanical gardens - both good.
Also went into old part of Melaka which is fantastic.
Cost of taxi to these attractions from resort varied between 25 to 40 RM.
We caught bus from KL (TBS bus station) to Melaka, which was cheap, easy and comfortable.
Would we return to Bayou Lagoon Park Resort? Probably but only for 2 nights not 4.

Juz give a try to this new resort since they are having promotion rate at agoda. The resort attached with a water park. Kids are very enjoy with the slide. Staff are friendly esp receptionist Mr Gani for he kind assistance. The location is bit far from town, it will be great if u have own transport. U can try the chinese restaurant the taste not bad.

Recently some friends of us stayed at your resort and spoke very highly of the well provided facilities all round, the quality, clean and comfortable room , friendly staff and the excellent water theme park. They said they will come back again, The quiet surroundings of the Resort suit them very well for a relaxing hassle free holiday way from the noisy bustling city.

To the Management of Bayou Lagoon Park Resort, I would like to say, well done, keep up the good work and you certainly deserve a BIG applause!!!

Without any doubts, we would strongly recommend your Resort to our out of town friends and relatives visiting the lovely heritage city of Melaka. George

Our guests from East Malaysia chose to stay at Bayou Lagoon Park Resort recently during the school holidays as it is conveniently located near our house for us to drop by and drive them around town. The whole family was very impressed with the cleanliness of the resort, nice comfortable room, friendly, courteous staff members and the well taken care facilities. The children enjoyed themselves thoroughly around the water park and it was difficult to get them back to the room and rest. The parents were so relaxed and happy that the children did had a great time during their 3 days at the resort. Our guests commented that the quality of the food served was excellent and they will highly recommend Bayou Lagoon Park Resort to all their friends back in KK, Sabah. Well done Bayou Lagoon Park Resort and we are proud to have such a well taken care wonderful Resort in Melaka!!!, GK
