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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

To be perfectly honest the food here is very good, i'd give it an 8/10 which is a very high rating. The service is the absolute best you could ever have. We were served by Paulpy and he is genuinely the nicest person ever! Very...nice, accomodating, funny and charismatic. Him as well as the other waiting staff were always present and provided the best service without being too overbearing and hovering around us too much. Definitely a huge highlight in our stay here at The Reinaissance Resort!More
