I stayed in philea for 1 night during weekdays. Green scenary and clean room but staffs are very rude and unfriendly. Buggy service very slow eventhough not many customers. You can see the buggy drivers just hang out and chit chat with their friends in front of the lobby and they will tell you that their buggy is not available.
In the room, aircond is not that cool eventhough you have lower down the temperature to the lowest. You can also hear what you neighbour is talking because the room is not sound proof. You will have a nice view from your although the room is quite small.
Food also not very nice and selection is limited. They do not even clean the previous food on my table when I sit for my breakfast. No fork and spoon and I have to request from them. No smiles from the staffs and dont expect them to pour some tea for you.
Thee swimming pool looks tempting but I do not have time to try it.
In summary, not worth to pay. You will definitely get a better hotel elsewhere in melakaMore
