“never and I really mean never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2008

rosy brochures and promises of big things during promotional fair in Singapore - but the hotel was a real disappointment - lousy check in - rooms not ready till late so had to go to town for lunch and then come back - facilities well below par - car park not properly maintained - big potholes at parking areas that can damage tyres- when ask for one extra towel - sorry no have - ask for extra pillow - sorry no have - view from room - disappointing - nil proper restaurant and need to really drive into city for some good makan.- in fact next to hotel nothing at all- rooms not tidy and claen and bed somewhat pungent - not a good resort as promised in brochure

Next year - same fair so bought vouchers again - promised that new management has much improved things - same wala wala different bull - nothing has improved instead looks like gone backwards - should be shut down until all facilities fixed otherwise give malacca a bad name

Stayed August 2004

went with the school for a trip there.
our group have about 210+ students.
Arrived at the lobby,i was thinking where's the lobby when i saw a counter in the middle with flies flying all around it....
I stayed in an apartment with 5 classmates.
The kitchen was full of coakroaches,everyday have coakroaches.
I find the bed ok generally everything was quite alright but have some problems such as toilet bowls chocked,no fire in kitchen,some lights spoiled.Biggest problem is cleanliness problem.

My family which consists of 9 adults and 10 children had a nightmare staying in his resort last Nov. We were caught in a total blackout, causing us to climb up 7 storey high to our rooms, and suffocate in the rooms without aircon or fan. As a result, we had to sleep in the dark and the windows had to be wide opened to allow the night breeze to enter so that we will not sleep in a 'sauna'. To our disgust, we couldnt sleep as mosquitoes attacked us throughout the night. My children, especially my baby, was babdly bitten. My little angel had over 30 mosquito bites all over her body (yes, we actually counted the number of bites on her face and body!!). When we brought her out the next day, some pple tought she had chicken pock cos her face was full of red dots! I understand t the hotel is facing major financial problems, but shouldnt the website be shut down?! No one should ever step your foot into this resort until the management's problem is solved.

we have booked this hotel for our church family camp (3days 2nights)many months ago and initial payment for RM8000 was made.

to our great shock, on 2/6/07, when we arrived melaka from johor bahru ,we were told by the hotel management that the hotel was "overbooked" and we had to return to Jb on the same day.

the hotel verbally agreed to pay our loss for Rm13,200.00 till now we have yet to receive.

fortunately, on that day, we managed to contact Melaka Chief Minister to express our disappointment over this incident. He sent 2 exco to help us and we were advised to lodge a police report.

there were 1000 people were denied of rooms on 2/6/2006.

subsequently, the Gov of Melaka has suspended this resort till it clears all its debts.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for as long as it took for the taxi we arrived in to turn round and get us out of there. The building, corridors, apartment were filthy. The pool water was not fit for ducks never mind people but i'm sure the ducks would appreciate the chips floating around in it. We didn't stay long enough to check the beds but judging by the state of the staff uniforms, I can only assume they were as dirty.
Save your money, there are plenty of quality hotels in Melaka and we returned to the one we checked out of only an hour earlier somewhat relieved that they could accommodate us.

My family was booked to stay at Melaka Water City Resort from 16 - 18 March 2007 but only stayed one night. I totally agree with Perry Tan - totally overated. The 2 bedroom suite we were checked into was filty and ants crawling all over. I had to call for housekeeping and he probably mop the floor with vinegar to get rid of the ants..chezz smells like hell after he left... and I had to mop it again with the toilet floor mat. The bedsheets looks like it has not been changed but just tidied up coz there was hair on the sheets and dirty with stains. This will be my first experince there and it will be definately the last. The next day we moved to Melaka Everly Resort which gave us a totally cleaner room and a proper beach.
