have stayed at the sterling (vey average) and then at the majestic (excellent property which seems almost out of place in grungy Malacca) we had to move into the Casa del Rio as everything else was full. On arrival we waited for the room but as the hotel is so close to the old China town area of the city we strolled into town for lunch with the kids at the Hard Rock Cafe which again was surprisingly good (kids loved it anyway). The hotel has a huge water feature which would be so much better if it was a swimming pool near the river. The pool is on the roof and is satisfactory (big but a bit soulless for a resort). The hotel has a Marriott vacation resorts feel to it and is even trying to sell rooms in a nearby annexe but the quality of build, decor and riverside restaurant is actually pretty good. I don't think any family would be unhappy here and the staff whilst lacking in some respects were certainly all pretty friendly.
