“Can be improved”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

I was there at A'Famosa Resort for company event. For ballroom, it's only average and since we have boxes of materials to be taken, hotel side only asked us to get the trolley ourselves and not even asked their staff to assist. Luckily they lend us the trolley. Since the ballroom is on first floor, we have to carry the boxes by ourselves to the ballroom.
For accommodation, the room is spacious and comfortable. Bathroom is okay with shower area and bath tub.
The variety of breakfast was not much but luckily we just wanted to make sure our stomach will be filled with some food so I have no comment on that.
Cowboy town was nearby to the hotel and the fireworks at night was great.
I sincerely hope that the club house facilities can be improved as there were a number of Korean golfers staying in this resort.
If you are bringing family, you may want to visit the Safari in the morning, then back to the hotel for freshen up, then to cowboy town for the Cowboy show. Fireworks is the greatest here.

The red indian performance ws entertaining ...and the animal musical show was ws luvly.. the show ended with a brilliant firework performance. Overall I find the entire show to be interesting and amusing especially if you are a tourist... Overall 2 day stay was good.

The rooms are dirty and run down, bathrooms have very low running water pressure. Bugs and insects everywhere; management needs to find an exterminator. Needs a complete interior makeover. I would not recommend anyone to stay a night here, though the attractions and rides are pretty decent.

I used to come down here yearly since it was first opened for family getaway trip, it was real fun back then. My last trip there was 2 years back and it was still bearable. This time I went there with colleagues and we stayed in their villas for 3 days.

The villa was badly maintained, and the sofas were so dusty, that we can catch a flu by just seating there. The toilet was dirty and a lot of their furniture were spoilt and not fixed. Had dinner buffet at the clubhouse and the food was terrible. The utensils were so dirty, that you can see coffee stains in their cups, and their fork and spoons had stains. Having instant noodles seems a better idea then.

We went to their cowboy town, safari and also their waterpark. Needless to say, all of it are run-down. The staffs at the check-in counter for their villas were also unhelpful and rude. In conclusion, the management need to do some serious upgrading on their maintenance and services. Would not be going there again until it is done.

There's nothing much to do here. Most of the activities available was under maintenance (horse riding, go kart etc). Paintball was fun though. Everything looked really run down and badly maintained. The accommodations are really far from the entertainment activities and restaurants so we had to call the banana truck, which takes 30mins to come. We went to the Chinese restaurant in the cow boy town and had to purchase an F&B ticket. The food was terrible and service was also spotty. Nobody cleared the dishes and they kept forgetting our orders. The performance at cow boy town only starts at 9.30pm and ends 10pm, so most of games (bumper cars etc) are only available after 10pm.

We rented a few villas for a short weekend getaway. The mini bar was empty. There were no utensils and cutleries. The aircon was spitting ice. The safe was locked so we couldn't use it. There was no towels. We had to call twice for housekeeping. For the money we paid, I think the stay wasn't at all worth it. If you planning for a trip here, you'd be better off booking a boutique hotel in Malacca.

Did our company event there. Really bad. Bad management, smelly room and bad food.

The run desk will argue with the customer over the delay in the check in. Very unprofessional and unseem of any front counter service.

Rooms are really bad, noicy, smelly and old.

The breakfast is bad too. Cold food, restaurant full of fly and hot.

Will never go back there again.

Bad experience for my family of 10 who stayed in one of the bungalow (# 1038) recently. The rooms were not clean. The floor was oily. The cushion on the chair were old and soft and it was so uncomfortable sitting on them. The swiming pool was dirty, the pump was not working and there were red ants all around the pool. Overall the maintenance was really bad and the price they charge was too high for the kind of bungalow they provided. THe water park was dirty and poorly maintained. The lunch pack that came with the expensive entrance fee was not for human consumption. I'll never ever go back to this place or recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Forget coming here for holiday!
