GREAT family outing!”

Excellent, polite service.

We had a great family outing at A'Famosa. Something that we did not expect at all. The service was not only excellent and polite but speedy fast too. Another feathers to the cap,the reception was all too helpful with our questions without a sigh. We had a homely experince. Only lacking was the television reception which was quite burl,would like to suggset an upgrade or at least an ASTRO minimum package. A'Famosa, Hats Off to you!

Wonderful resort and a beautiful place”

The Villa with private pool, The Safari World, Old West

It was a wonderful stay. We loved the villa with the private pool. The A'Famosa resort is very big, may be over 100 acres of land and it's green everywhere. The Condo stay apartment looked quite old on the outside and may be some of the bad reviews are based on condo stay. The Villas looked very beautiful and clean. We really enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The service was very fast. The Safari world and Old West were really good. Only let down was the water park. It was not at all impressive except few big adult rides. Most of the kids water play area was very dirty. The water was brown in color at some places and looked like there was no maintenance for months.

A Pleasant Resort!”

We stayed at a 3 room apartment with 2 family friends. Our kids played golf at the A'Famosa Golf Club. A very challenging course indeed which gave us parents a wonderful experience apart from giving ourselves a thumb's up walks within the golf course. The apartment is spacious and we enjoyed the view of the greens. Except for the toilet block and aircond leak (staff's fast action in the repair was a relieve) the rest were just fine. Aplenty of family adventures can be explored with exciting games and theme parks. The Wild West was so tempting! We had a good local dishes along the nearby areas not forgetting the taste of quality durians and the Premium Outlet just next to the Resort gave us a good break with lots of shopping bags!!! And yes, we'll make a come back!!

4th visit but not next time”

Some Staff Support and Good view

This was our fourth visit to A'Famosa resort and we had always been recommending it to others but this time we did not find it at that standard. The animals in the safari and zoo were missing while the breakfast at the club house was terrible. Initially we were given very aged 3 bedroom apartment with hardly anyone else staying in that tower. However on complaint, we were shifted to other tower in a 2 B/R apartment with better condition and view. The Safari and the night show (parade) were disappointing as most of the animals were missing while previously it use to be full of animals which was a major attraction for the kids. We don't think we should visit A'Famosa resort next time. Looking at the standard of the Safari, we dropped the idea to visit its water park and instead preferred Sunway lagoon in KL.

The room design is nice and cozy. the bed is super huge. i got 2 queen size with a cheaper price. only i am not satisfy with the toilet. it's very old and not maintained well. hope the management can look into this matter. the location is quite far from melaka town. but you can go to the nearest town for any atm & self laundry at Alor Gajah town. overall is good and will come again.

Water Theme Park is a bit old, need to improve & refurnish. Some of the slides are closed. Photo should give have softcopy download from webpage.

Theme park is the main factor in selecting this resort. As this is our 2nd visit, the activities seems the same as our 1st visit which was 1 year back. Would be better if they could change some of the shows or add in new rides to existing theme park. Room wise, aging furnitures and would be great if wifi provided in room. Generally satisfied.

The facilities like rental of bicycles is worse experience. The bicycle are not well maintenance and it is not safe to ride with the road in the area of A'Famosa.

Short Vacation”

It was a public holiday, so we decided to have a short vacation from KL to A Famosa Resort which took about 2 hours. It was a pleasant journey, we checked in late around 4.30pm and the room was good and big enough for family of 5. Had our dinner at Freeport Food Court. Next day we spent most of the time at Waterpark, the price was reasonable and inclusive of lunch set. We decided to rent a Cabana, for RM160 with power supply, fan and also curtain, and muslim ladies can just take off their tudung while have a rest inside. We enter around 9.30am and exit around 6.30pm, so we really enjoy the waterpark there. My youngest daughter really enjoy the Wahaha while other siblings enjoy the other rides. Again, dinner at Freeport Food Court. No time for Old West as we were too tired, maybe next time. Overall, it was a good vacation and this resort has everything a family need.

A below average stay”

Can't recall any. First off, the check-in took about 20 minutes. They also inform me my room was not ready yet despite it mention check-in time was 1pm, i arrive at 3pm and room was still not ready, until the manager came over and instructed the check-in staff to swap a free room for me. When we were in the room, the hair dryer was faulty, was blowing off burned rubber smell. Thirdly, inform the housekeeping staff to make room the next day before i left for the water park at 12:00 noon. Came back around 5:00pm, room still in a mess. Took my bath and everything, then went out to grab a bite in Melaka town. Before going out stopped by the counter and saw the manager and informed him, no one came over to clean the room since morning when i first told them to clean the room. I came back from Melaka town and the room was finally clean and tidy. Btw, there was no breakfast included, maybe it is standard practice for A'Famosa Resort Hotel, but with that price tag, i would assume there is breakfast included. That is a minor thing anyway.... All in all, doesn't look like i will be coming back.
