How to Write a Hotel Review

How to Write a Hotel Review

Whether your stay was impeccable and you wish to praise a hotel, or your visit fell into the nightmare category and you need to get some complaints off your chest, writing a hotel review is a great way to share about your hotel experience with others (from hotel staff to other travelers).  Knowing how to write an effective review will help fellow travelers make informed decisions when deciding amongst lodging options.  Travel review sites such as TripAdvisor, TravBuddy or TravelPost allow you to get your thoughts out there for others to see and learn from.  Here are some tips to help you compose a useful hotel review: Share About Yourself Talk about what the purpose of your trip was (business, pleasure, etc) and who you traveled with (your family, significant other, group of friends).  Letting other travelers know how often you travel will also give you some credibility to your hotel review.

Cancun’s Most Recent Developments

Cancun has long been the hotspot in Mexico for revellers of all ages and persuasions, and in recent months it has experienced growth and development in many areas; this growth has also moved down the coast to the Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen as well as Tulum. In the first 6 months of 2016 alone the footfall through Cancun International Airport rose to 10.78 million (a 7.76% increase from 2015).

Seasons Greetings from Germain Gallardo

Season’s Greetings from Germain Gallardo

As we move towards the end of the year, it is time to look back and reflect upon all the events, achievements and actions we have experienced. In the past, I used to focus on the tasks that had not been completed or the goals that were set with good intention but were unable to be fulfilled. Now days, I prefer to focus on the events, actions and decisions that bared fruit. I have learned that it is not just the work that counts but rather the fruits of the work, which make more of an impact. 1. Accomplishments Team Villa del Palmar Cancun faced several serious challenges this past year, which we were able to successfully deal with in terms of major repairs and improvements with little impact to our guests. For example, because of its complexity and location, the renovation of Zama was a major challenge. The construction crew, lead by Rod, did an amazing job to balance guest satisfaction with completing all the tasks needed to finish the project on time. Team …
