    Fabulous

    1) Its proximity to the main tourist attraction as well as the main "action" area of Malacca. 2) Its luxuriously appointed room and large bathroom 3) The fact that it is a boutique hotel 4) and finally, that instead of having a buffet breakfast of pre-cooked everything, it presented a smallish continental section buffet style, and then took the order for the "mains", and made it to order - a truly sensible way to serve hotel breakfast. I really liked the fact that each table was served its own stainless steel (double skin) plunger pot of coffee (no pre-made, half-cold, stewed coffee in sight) - or you could order cappucino or latte at no extra charge. This is a brand new hotel, and there were a couple of things that disappointed but were probably teething problems. I will say that the hotel staff were very quick to try to make amends and cannot be faulted by me in that regard.

    It was disappointing that the hotel website failed to mention that during Ramadan the hotel restaurant would only be having buffet dinners, not a la carte as advertised; from a hotel rating itself as 5 star I felt it wasn't up to the mark; We were underwhelmed by the lack of attention the bar staff paid to their customers and a seeming lack of familiarity with their drinks menu. I am hoping the building site next to the hotel has been completed the next time we visit Malacca. Obviously, its noise factor is beyond the hotel's control.

    Location is excellent. Service was really nice with small touches making a big difference. For example, we found a card on our windscreen when we left saying they had taken the liberty to clean our window for a clearer drive home. Just a small example of many small touches. The spa was really nice and the manager took the time to welcome us while we ate breakfast. Beautiful hotel overall.

    Very good

    Location is excellent if you want to visit Melaka for its heritage sites. Rooms are very nice, plenty of space, good bedding, spacious balcony. We had room with riverview: view is very nice. Overall (I do have some downsides on this hotel) they still are ok, but a lot can be improved: see improvements.

    Not prepared for children. No playground or what so ever. Restaurant does not have special children menu. They do provide a juniorbed for children staying in the room, however this means you miss out the furniture on the balcony, because that is what they use to make a juniorbed. So you pay for extra bedding, but in fact they take the furniture which is in your room rate already!! Internet cumbersome: free wifi only for 1 device (probably mac address related). You have to ask at lobby for extra keycodes. They did give me 2 extra, but the person mentioned I had to pay for it. After some words I received them for free: not sure whether the employee was pulling my leg or really should have asked me to pay for it. Staff in bar and restaurant seems new: they act insecure and are not sure about menu (children menu was first confirmed, but after 20min they mentioned they do not have it).

    Peaceful ambiance, lovely infinity pool with view of the Straits. The rooms were appointed beautifully. The tile and wood were soothing, the sliding door window over the large and comfortable bath tub allowed for an open feeling and a view of the river. The bath salts and other toiletries had a gret scent. Excellent verandah with fan and night time candle. Well done.

    As a new hotel the staff in the restaurants will need to continue to work on their service efficiency. However, politeness and smiles were in plenty. Good food for a good price.

    Outstanding service. Highly personalised treatment from the hotel staff. Every service staff was smiling and asking us for feedback and how to improve further. The room is very spacious and the layout is really good. Breakfast is very sumptous with a mx of a la carte buffet and continental buffet. I will definitely be back again to Casa del Rio.

    Large room was very relaxing and well worth paying extra for the river view. Many touches to make it a luxurious stay. We were impressed at the level of turndown service at which they lit candles and anti-mosquito lamps. Roof top swimming pool very refreshing and affording great view of the City. Breakfast was very good.

    Great Location, Great view from River-view Roms

    Avoid Rooms in the south-East Corner due to Noisy Airconditioning. Quality of Service in the Restaurant and at Check-in is wide spread and not adequate of a 4*Levels Hotel

    The position right in the middle of the town meant one could walk everywhere, to all the sights, little shops and restaurents. The very large rooms with lots of little extras. Finally the swimming pool on the roof was wonderful.

    The dinner menu in the main restaurant could be a little more varied.
