We had such a lovely time here!!

We were greeted by a fab reception and got given a lemon and ginger sorbet whilst checking in.

Room was very spacious and bathroom was huge. All was very clean and lovely view of courtyard.

Infinity pool on roof is an added bonus and they gave us complimentary watermelon. Nice touch!

Hotel is in central location!!

Only downside was that breakfast was not included in our price and that the complimentary wifi was slightly problematic but they sorted us out as soon as we asked!!

Stayed: April 2014, traveled as a couple

My family of 4 ( 7year old twins) stayed here over the weekend for quick getaway. It was a nice, fuss-free holiday that we really needed. From the reservation call ( thank you Ms Wendy Wee), to the check in and check out, everything was near perfect. I love this hotel. Service was prompt and the room was wonderful. From the front desk, to the valet cum bell boy, to the turn down service and the service at the restaurents and bar, no complaints. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to relax but also discover Melaka. I will definately be coming back for more.

We stayed here over a night last April 6 and it was the most relaxing moment of our vacation. They welcomed us with their specialty herb infusion sherbet and cold towels. We were able to get rooms by the river having tranquil aura and relaxing scent of herbs. The bathroom is very spacious you can have shower or use the bath tub with those aromatic soaps they offer. They have so much of very soft pillows which I would love to bring home too (just kidding). I like the infinity pool a lot and the receptionist/lifeguard was very entertaining. He gave us refreshments and his very nice work of fruit carvings. We even did not ask for it. I love the herb aroma of the toiletries. We bought a set of it to bring back home. The staff are very warm and good English speakers. The location of the hotel is indeed perfect and very accessible to wonderful sites of Malacca. The library is very cozy and helpful. Breakfast is excellent offering the best harvests of Malaysia. I would prefer to stay here again. I am encouraging you also to experience it. I think it is also a perfect place for couples to spend their honeymoon here.

Excellent hotel with a lovely ambience, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great. The room overlooking the river was tastefully decorated and the beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in, lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by.

is the Casa del Rio! The rooms are Spanish decorated. The bathroom is large and the dressing room is attached. There is a wonderful view from the balcony on the river.
You find everything what makes a stay comfortable. From bathrobe to Mosquito Spray, Coffee
maker, tea, water complementary.
The breakfast is excellent. Half Buffet and half order. The best Chicken Rendang we ever had. The staff is outstanding nice and helpful.
Only the staff at the Front desk need some more training.
In the evening is Happy Hours at the Bar with Live music. Beautiful view on the river.
The Infinity Pool on the roof is breath taking nice.
Location of the Hotel is fantastic. In five minutes walking distance you reach the boat for a River tour which is a must in Malacca and all the other attractions like Christ Church or Jonkers Street. Don't forget to walk at the side streets from Jonkers with all the
temples, nice, special shops and Boarding Houses.
Malacca is a wonderful town with many intresting places and very friendly people.

Room Tip: Rooms to the river.

We were a small group of three couples – my wife and I and another couple had stayed here before and loved it, which is why we returned with our friends. I arranged for the hotel transport from KLIA to Melaka, because I had been left down by local KL transport the last time. The vehicle and driver were waiting for us as we exited the arrival hall. All the staff that we spoke to were helpful and friendly. We asked for suggestions for eating out one evening and we were directed to a Pakistani restaurant where we sat in the car park, because the restaurant was packed inside. An interesting experience, but a very pleasant one, because the food was great.
Casa del Mar rooms are large, with plenty of storage space to unpack and spread out. Our room overlooking the central lago pool and had a large balcony with table and chairs. Breakfast was a mix of buffet and al a carte – the hot food being al a carte, which was a nice touch. One could sit in the air-conditioned dining room or on the outside balcony area overlooking the Melaka River – this was our choice. This is a very comfortable hotel with a private library, card key access only, with a large selection of books that can be borrowed. The temperature of the horizon pool on the roof was just right, and you have the ability to swim up to the poolside bar if you want a drink. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Melaka.

Booked 3 nights at end of March, Hotel perfectly placed for all attractions. Hotel staff are the best I have experienced in Malaysia, helpful courteous and eager to help.
Breakfast had excellent choice, room large airy and for the first time for as long as I can remember the TV had a good selection of channels and not the normal rubbish that nobody wish's to watch should they so choose.
Parking is easy and directly under hotel

If your going to Melaka stay here its one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a long time and hope the management keep up the good service
