I booked a honeymooners villa suite at A Famosa on 29 april 2011. I've been read about the review here with all the negative review that really scared me & almost spoilt my excitement. Then on Friay 29 I went there with my family all the way from KL..guess what? It's a superb holiday. from check in to check out everything were done nicely and most important..with respect. really enjoyed our stay there so much. Quite & green surrounding plus private pool & jacuzi were very nice & my kid love it. we went to comboy town & safari world..it ok la as long my kid enjoyed it. The only things that annoying me is fees to safari world is quite expensive and lunch should be optional for guess who need it. My advise for those plan to come here, you better have yr own transport becoz one place to another is quite far away...and bring yr own food here..don't expext a five star treatment as its not! come back again?? yes I will..Thanks A famosa for making my daughter 2nd birthday anniversary a memorable one...

I booked a unit of Honeymoon Suite Lot 1321 and a 3 Bedroom villa Lot 1322 with my family over the weekend. We were very disappointed with the pool and jacuzzi. There were flies lying on top of the water. The water was so contaminated which we could hardly see the ground of the pool. There was no towels or toothbrush provided! The toilet and bedsheet were so dirty and so was the living room. The villa was stink with cigarette smell! The water heater was not working and the water was small.

We went to Cowboy Town and it wasn't worth the money. We had our dinner at Kopitiam and the food was bad. It was not freshly cooked. Served in those catering tray.
We went to Safari Water World. It showed special price for certain pass. We presented the pass and they told us it is not applicable. And we need to pay for the parking fee and entrance fee.

The hotel's website indicates c/i time is either 1 or 3pm. But we were told that we could only c/i at 4pm. The hotel's currency exchange rate was displayed as of Feb 2011 and they could only sell us that rate.

I wouldn't recommend my friends/ relatives to go! We paid the price to have a private pool and we couldn't use it. We paid the price for comfortable stay, but we didn't get it.

We went to A'Famosa for a company trip which I hadn't looked forward to as we had such poor accommodation years agsounded idea sounded nice, bungalow with private pool but upon checking in you'd be flabbergasted at the run down condition of the bungalow!

well this time round we booked the low rise apartments at Condotel D'savoy. The low rise apartment appeared to be newly completed, with 2 bedrooms and modern furnishings n clean. We had a blast at the water park and animal safari, which offered bird shows, elephant show and multiple-animal show which kept the children interested. There was also a cowboy town well. It's a good place to spend a short weekend with young children, with only 1.5 hours from Kuala Lumpur.

The only complain was mediocre food, but the apartment had a kitchenette which made it convenient for us. Air was an enjoyable say for us. Just make sure you have the right ccomodation. We strongly recommend the low rise apartments.

Room Tip: Daddy's may enjoy the golf course too

We enjoyed a lot... starting from my niece of 3 years old to my father abt 60+.
For Vegetarians, Food choice is less if you are not in big group..but again we were lucky where there was a group of about 30 people from india and we managed to get indian vegetarian food!!
