Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a great time at the rooftop bar for sunset. Nadear and Nice took great care of us with good drinks, and fast meal service. When you stay in the area, I’d recommend spending at least one sunset on the rooftop. My only disappointment...was the chicken satay from the restaurant - they were very tough and bland. Not typical for satay in SE Asia.More
