Stayed at a one bedroom hotell room 2 nights. Very clean rooms otherwise but the carpets looked very dirty with black marks and water damages. Unusually silent AC and quite nice view. Reception a bit worn out and dull. Maybe new wallpaper and a couple of plants would make it look nicer.
Breakfast ok and many dishes to choose between.
I am a nongolfer but the course looked nice and what I have heard an interesting course. In my eyes it looked nicely done and well taken care of. Didn't have time to check pool and all the other attractions that the resort had to offer. Checked around a bit how the other types of accommodations looked like and got the impression of worn out everywhere despite in the villa suites with own pool and jacuzzi. They were probably recently refurbished.
I would like to recommend the resort anyway due it's cleaniness. Most of the worn out look could be taken away with a little bit of paint so the damages are only superficial and it doesn't smell mould anywhere.

Room Tip: Villa suite with pool and jacuzzi or hotel rooms higher up, maybe even appartments. Condos no.

Took the family for a 2D1N trip to A Famosa. The reception desk screwed up my bookings, eventually gave us our rooms. We had 3 units booked. The units had a stench and the rooms was just so-so. The unit I stayed in had a strong cigarette smell. The 2nd unit had a few fused out bulks. The 3rd unit had it's Master Bedroom lock spoiled his we couldn't event access the room!

We had the 2 bedroom apartment which comes with 2 bathrooms. The water pressure was SMALLER than a "baby's pee". The reason they gave us were we are staying in the top flood (20th floor). Bear in mind, we didn't request for the top floor. We ended up having to fill the bath tub with water and bath using the drinking cup from the kitchen.

Food was another pain staying there. Nearest drive is to Tampin, Negeri Sembilan which is about a 20min drive from the Condo. Else a drive to Melaka city to enjoy the famous chicken rice balls or Nyonya food will take you 1hr.

My suggestion is to just book a hotel in Melaka city and make A Famosa a day trip for the family. The apartment was costly and there is nothing good about it to say.

Room Tip: Don't bother

Located half way to Melaka town, another 40-minutes drive town. Location is bad. The whole resort is quiet, not many people stay (probably few families). The area is creepy and scary. My device is think twice before book.

from my very first review of A-famosa couple months ago as mentioned will stay again in month of Aug, here is my summary for the 2nd time experience.

The Condotel we are staying this time is different block, different unit (more cleaner) than the previous stay and with better view (facing the pool).

However during check-in time, there was some hiccups as we booked 2 rooms with 6 adults and 2 young children, surprisingly the front desk told us that they only received 1 room booking, to cut things short here, after explaining and filling their head with common sense, they managed to get us 2 rooms. (they expect us to cramp and squeeze 6 adults and 2 kids in 2 rooms with 2 single beds + 2 master beds).

Even the complimentary mineral water bottle (F&N Brand) taste fishy, having consume that, it gives me diarrhoea for a week. it's not expired but somehow its like....

During our 2nd stay, we skipped cowboy town, since the first visit was just so so, this time only visit the zoo.

we took the opportunity do dine in the only restaurant in the hotel which offering buffet style, food serving it's really below average, you can get those food servings at any mamak shop or nasi kandar shop anywhere.

Lastly, nothing special to boast about here, an almost run-down resort if it's still not going to improve further.

i can see from recent tripadvisor comments by others it start receiving feedback response from the A-Famosa management after so long. please buck it up if you reading all these people comments and not copy paste your template reply to us.

Room Tip: if staying in Condotel, just get the block with front desk counter below. there are few blocks.

I book a villa with 4 bedrooms and pool...the villa is okay..the service at customer service also ok...we enjoyed stayed at the villa, my children is enjoying play water in the swimming pool....
But dissappointed when we noticed that alot of abandon villa in this area......
actually this place is the good place for family gathering and familyday,. hoping that management of Afamosa give more attention on this matter.
