My family and I checked into Casa del Rio Melaka last week, as the location seems great - river view and yet within walking distance of Jonker Walk. As the hotel is barely 2 months old, we were keen to check it out.
We booked 2 Lagos deluxe rooms and a River Suite. If you have a bigger group, go for the suite. The 2 bedrooms and living room are super comfortable, and the river view from the balcony and the master bedrooom is just great. No complaints though on the Lagos rooms as we get a direct view of the lagos below and a "slanted" view of the river from the balcony.
Service from the front desk to the restaurant staff was unbeatable. They have definitely been well-trained to offer the best service possible, and in tune with a 6-star hotel service. After checking out, I found some discrepancy in my bill and called back to check. The reception manager did check and called me back to explain and went on to resolve the matter.
My only complaint is the housekeeping - I suspect they are still not fully staffed, as requests for coffee cups etc never materialised. I passed this feedback on checking out, and hope that this will improve on my next trip.
