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.

Punta Playa in Lio Beach disappoints with its paella: burnt, dry, with rubbery squid dominating the dish. Other offerings like croquetas and huevos rotos fare better, but the seafood paella's failure notably detracts from the dining experience.

My family and I, with my mom’s side of the family ate at Punta Playa while staying at Lio on our last day of our trip in El Nido and it was truly a delectable experience that left me still feeling hungry after a full...meal. The location of the restaurant has a lovely beachfront view on a terrace where you can see the long Lio Beach and vast sea that stretch out in front, and beautiful sunsets during dinner. The staff are super friendly, and waiting time for the food is not bad. I ordered their popular Tuna Tartare Gazpacho, as well as the Blue Marlin Steak. My gazpacho was the first I’ve had, and it was delicious. The sweet, cold tomato soup paired really well with the small chunks of soft tuna tartar, and it’s served with additional toppings on the side like croutons. The Blue Marlin Steak also had an excellent and savory taste, especially when dipped in the buttery lemon caper sauce, and coupled with the fluffy mashed potatoes and crunchy vegetables. We also ordered gambas, paella, tuna and beef carpaccio, croquettas, pulpo, etc., which were all scrumptious and filling.More
