“Never going back there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2006

Went there over the weekend with a group of 10, not a trip I want to remember. Buildings look nice on the outside, but plagued with maintenance issues.
Some of the corridor lights were not switched on, plunging the whole corridor into darkness. We also encountered some rooms that had puddles of water on the floor, presumably rain water. The bathtub can only be used as a shower, as the stopper was missing. Room service only for lunch and dinner (?). Airconditioner is not working well. Rooms look run down with water-damaged paint and hastily installed door latches. At least the sheets are clean, and hot water comes quickly in the shower.
Breakfast at the hotel was buffet style with limited choices, and seem to lack manpower in topping up the buffet table and clear used tables. My request for cutlery was not acknowledged but I did get it in the end. The flies are also irritating, but some of them do get killed by the UV fly-killing device installed above the kitchen. You get to hear the satisfying crackle of electricity if you sit close enough to the kitchen entrance.

  • Liked — Good pool/pond view design
  • Disliked — Flies
  • Tips/Secrets — Check your room thoroughly before you unpack your luggage.

I came across Melaka WaterCity Resort. Being given a package which only cost you RM338 for the bedroom apartment ...i say why not?. These also include breakfast and dinner for six persons. We decided to put up for 2 nights.

When i first check in it is just like home far way from home, the living room ia spacious and even the rooms were spacious. They have kitchen facilities e.g microwave for us to pre heat our meal items. We can just sit at the living hall and enjoy the shows on tv. But the bathroom need some improvement though, there are water ponding in the bathroom.

The experience is just like normal hotel, there are hiccups here and there but still i like the atmostphere, where can you find a place that you can see an overall view of a lake from your balcony. It is soothing especially in the morning.

My kids love the go karts and canoe. We enjoyed ourselves and the main thing is worth for money.

We have just returned from a 3 day 2 nights office trip at Melaka Watercity (100 pax). The apartments were in a very bad condition. Most of the lights are blown. the Aircond is out of gas and not cooling at all. The maintenence people knows nothing about customer service...and aircond service. Most of the Facilities are not well maintained.. dont try the Go-kart, waste of money. the food was terrible. The service was terrible. Dirty table was not cleared. Not enough waiter/waitress. The fried rice for breakfast was even stale/mouldy. last but not least very limited towels at the pool.

Please don’t stay here it will ruin your holiday.

  • Liked — it has akitchen
  • Disliked — most of the appliance are faulty and not maintained
  • Tips/Secrets — by all means avoid this place

We checked-in into a 3-bedroom apartment on the 7th floor, despite the fact that we have requested for a lower floor when making the booking.

The apartment is spacious enough to hold 7-8 persons. The facilities offered are sufficient - they have ample parking spaces, hot shower, large living room, dining table for 6, 2 double beds + 2 single beds and a microwave in the kitchen. Outdoor facilities are great for kids: large swimming pool, go-karting, kayaking, train rides, etc.

The nice ambiance however is marred by a very LOUD music blaring from the Reception/Hotel Lobby. This started as early as 8.00 a.m. (during weekends!) and goes on for the whole day.

If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend with your family, this is not the place for you.

I was in Malacca with my family on a long weekend break. We stayed at the Watercity Resort. The apartment was really beyond what I expected. There were cobwebs in the apartment and the aircon was dripping water. The shower in the bathroom was not working and the bathtub could not be used. It was noisy at night and we had to wait for more than half an hour to get a table to have breakfast.

Also the staff at the reception was very rude and snappy and did not have any idea what hospitality was about.

Please do not ever stay there and this being a self-proclaimed 5-star resort.
