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.

We have just spent 8 days at the Marriott Merlin Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. We dined in all their restaurants & cafes. Our favourite and best was the Merchant Kitchen where we had breakfast and lunch each day. The service was great and...the meals superb. The staff always had a smile and had a great attitude. We'd like to thank especially, Tanny, Gift and Warm as they always welcomed us and made us feel important (Thankyou). John W.. R4240More
