My Deaf friend and I came to the Phileo Resort & Spa on last Dec 2012. It is not difficult for me drive to reach this place from KL. I surprised when friendly staff welcomed me to park in the disability parking car, when they get to know me and my friend, who are disability person; Deaf!
We enjoyed to visit around the beautiful resort when we are walking in the morning so early, very fresh natural and cool. First time, we slept in the chalet which made from the woods (better at upper floor because can see the beautiful view from top)! But, the footsteps of walking on the floor-wood can be heard or felt the vibration!
But, there is a problem about the tub bathroom, which I noticed some ants around, so I don't want to use the tub. It's okay to use shower, it looks very clean.
The buggy services was excellent, got available until late night; 12 midnight or around 1pm. We late to reach hotel after we enjoyed the Malacca Town. Luckily, they take care of us and send us to a chalet room via their buggy car. :)
WiFi connection are weak, so surfing internet be slower, but sometimes faster. Depends on how many people use this WiFi. If you worry about the raining are coming when you go out from a room, lucky the umbrellas in the cupboards so we can use it, then we walk to the lobby.
I recommend this resort when you prefer to stay in the resort and go to the nearby attractions ( Melaka Zoo, Mini Malaysia, and shopping malls ) as it is quite near the Ayer Keroh toll plaza. But, it is far from Malacca Town. :)
