Puerto Vallarta Mexico

Apple vacations lost our air travel itinerary for our way home. It was the most stressful way to end a vacation. We emailed them and they wanted to give us a 50$ voucher. One, we haven’t received it, two, it was the most infuriating thing we’ve experienced. We were in another country, with our confirmation, and we had to sit at baggage for two hours!!! I can’t see us booking with Apple vacations again.
My Go To
by Coppell Resident on 2020/02/20 13:11
Anytime I’m planning a trip to a different city I go to Trip Advisor to check it out. Great info and reviews from people who have been there done that!! I use for local info as well!

This is the best trip I have had and extremely kind and caring staff here Mellissa the desk clerk was so nice and helpful to my needs
Truly Helpful
by Happy CA Traveler on 2020/02/20 08:03
We use the trip advisor app for all our trip planning. There’s lots of ideas for things to do and places to eat at destination points and along the way. We’ve asked questions and received useful tips in trip advisor forums. Hotel info and reviews are spot on. The app is very user friendly.
Commercialized and difficult to navigate
by JoJoMahMe on 2020/02/20 05:26
I barely use this site anymore and today reminded me why...it’s all advertising and little content. I would prefer to just see a lust of “things to do” in ranking order or have more options to weed out activities I’d never be interested in...really gone downhill here
Ok
by jCS319 on 2020/02/20 04:30
I use TripAdvisor a lot, but I prefer the internet version over the app. And the fact that I can’t upload .HEIC pictures is really frustrating.
Great App
by Crazyfamilyoffour on 2020/02/20 04:29
I’m enjoying planning our families summer day trips and weekend trips using this app. For longer trips, I appreciate the feature that allows me to place certain attractions on different days of my trip. I would suggest however, being able to view only the events and attractions listed under a certain day. For example, I plan a 5 day trip to Washington DC that includes a total of 49 (!) attractions that I have divided as I wish to see them amongst the five day stay. It would be great if I could click on day two for instance, and only see the attractions and events that I planned for that day so that it would be easier to see where the locations are on the map and it would be more efficient to rearrange my itinerary according to attractions and events that are close to one another. Thank you for adding the “add note” section for each attraction, as I use to write in hours of operation and cost of events so I can see it at a glance.

Organize your travel ideas
by Eyecantstop on 2020/02/20 02:05
I love Trip Advisor for keeping my travel ideas and inspirations organized in folders that I can quickly refer to. I’ve been adding to my Athens/Santorini folder for about a year and will get to put them into action in June. I’ve learned how wise the Trip Advisor reviewers are- once I didn’t heed the bad reviews on a Monterey, CA hotel and learned the hard way that it was a dump. (Luckily, got a refund.)

I LOVE to travel. I LOVE great experiences, exploring new places, and learning about different cultures. TripAdvisor has allowed me to have the most mind blowing and phenomenal moments all around this beautiful world of ours with 99.9% of perfect recommendations for magical times. Thanks TripAdvisor family for truly shedding light on dreams!!!
Definitely doesn’t deserve 5 stars
by HhhhhI'm on 2020/02/19 23:56
Very mediocre, I’m here from New York , food is borderline terrible , I didn’t have a single meal that food was served hot , takes forever to get anything my the pool. Drinks are low/medium quality. Perhaps a place for Californian but definitely not a place to meet a New Yorker standard . I had to wait 25 mins to get a second room key...... asked for extra shampoo and conditioner as I have long hair and that never happened . Borderline mediocre place
My go-to for travel information
by Reddye59 on 2020/02/19 23:54
I always check trip advisor before every trip! I’m one of those people who research the heck out of every trip! I appreciate the feedback provided by other travelers! I read the “things to do” so I don’t miss anything! It’s my one stop shop for all travel related information!
Love this app
by HAKP57 on 2020/02/19 23:51
This is great. Lots of fun to review and very helpful when looking for opinions when traveling. It’s important to plan ahead and have an idea of what you’re getting into when traveling.
Reviews are worth reading
by bertabera on 2020/02/19 22:35
I always check Trip Advisor when traveling. Check for Restaurants, Hotels and things to do. I find the reviews to be helpful and star ratings on par.
Yummy!

Visiting my mom from Chicago and stopped for dinner. Our server, Hilary, was terrific. Funny and efficient. Food was delicious!
Adler, the beach attendant at the Conrad Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, FL
by Jim & Stuart on 2020/02/19 21:36
Adler was extraordinary. Very attentive, cheerful and accommodating. He provided towels, umbrellas and advise with speed and a smile. He is an extremely hard worker and a real asset to the Conrad Hotel in Ft Lauderdale Florida.
Love and depend on the app when traveling
by TLC NH on 2020/02/19 20:57
Been using it for several years now, and for the most part find the reviews and descriptions dependable. Love that they for the most part provide links so that I can receive dependable information and book directly from the app. It is a vital part of my decision process in making my mind up on where to dine, sightseeing and trips. Overall I am very happy with Trip Advisor.
Elevate Your Trip
by Music_Educe on 2020/02/19 16:41
I’ve been a fan of the Trip Advisor app for years. But on a business trip to Las Vegas, I researched hotels adjacent to our convention center. We ended up in a super nice condo-style hotel, above the strip, yet completely away from the smoke and noise of the casino. Our co-workers wondered how we found such a great place for the same amount of money. Thank you, Trip Advisor!
Love the ability to organize
by McCreacray on 2020/02/19 16:36
I’ve used the app for a number of vacations. I love the reviews and I all ideas I get from peoples posts. It makes it like I’ve had a friend go before me and give me the inside scoop.
Flaws in and the app
by dinoannp on 2020/02/19 16:01
Here are my main complaints with the app: 1. I tried to put a specific location in Rome in to narrow my search but it doesn’t allow me to put that filter in 2. When it asks for me to put in the number of rooms in, it doesn’t allow me to put in a specific number of people in for room 1 and another number in for room 2
Useful app

Best travel site/app!
by FroggattFamily on 2020/02/19 13:41
Trip Advisor is our go-to site for all our travels. We find it easy to use and accurate. We’ve traveled extensively in Europe, Japan, and the Caribbean and it hasn’t let us down.
Very helpful

I love trip advisor because it save our money and us from being fooled.

Trip advisor app is a user friendly travel app. Anything you need to travel is accessible . I use it for restaurants and things to do in a given location. I ha e used it to book excursions. Lovw it!
Always gives great ideas on what to do

Use this a lot when on vacation. It's never let me down. Great way to find out about local attractions, hotels, etc.

Easy way to get real travel information
by SarahS Wanderer on 2020/02/19 04:31
I enjoy using the App to research travel ideas. The reviews are confirmed and share pictures. There are also suggestions for what’s available to do in the various regions.
Love TripAdvisor App
by Warm Traveler on 2020/02/19 04:06
Love to use the TripAdvisor App as its easy to navigate, users can post picks. I do not book a vacation without first using TripAdvisor for reviews.
Honestly a great app
by _Cam_25 on 2020/02/19 03:55
I love just looking up random places and planning pretend vacations. This app offers so many attractions to so many places, you can spend hours and hours on here. They really do a good job of finding the lowest prices for hotels too.
Trip Advisor is super helpful
by ThatsmyEm on 2020/02/19 03:05
I always go to trip advisor to check prices and rates and read reviews on different hotels and restaurants before I plan my trips. This app is very handy and user friendly. Love it!
User Friendly App
by grvhisb on 2020/02/19 00:59
Enjoy searching for travel recs, restaurants and getting tips from the various forum. Most helpful travel app that I have used. 👍
Quite helpful when your planning off the cuff!

A must have for the infrequent traveler!
Stars have no standard value
by Reco21 on 2020/02/18 22:10
Stats are useless. One person gives an average rating and four stars another person gives terrible food good service with five stars. Please provide some guidelines as we are all “👀lemmings” and mathematically challenged on ratings ranging from one star to five stars. Someone please save us from ourselves.

Excellent trip info. Always go on trip advisor
Nice info, more work on the app
by heartblanch on 2020/02/18 20:30
Guys, will you ever remember where I left the app. Over and over I find restaurant, book it, on my way try to find out where’s the place it but you show me the start screen. Well, comon it should not be that way.
Very useful for booking and planning a trip
by surkris on 2020/02/18 19:33
The starting point of all my trips.
They remove negative reviews
by Murse-inator on 2020/02/18 18:13
We stayed at a luxury hotel and had roaches and bedbugs. The resort complained about our review and it was removed at their request. We had photos and a receipt from the exterminator that even wrote it was local problem. Complaining to Trip Advisor was useless. We no longer use the app or trust the reviews.
Good app issues with photo uploading
by Metacad on 2020/02/18 17:17
I like the app, but loading photos is not easy
Great App for Everything!
by Jenna12738 on 2020/02/18 16:19
I use the app almost daily, responding to reviews. I also use it when I’m traveling to book hotels, find restaurants and fun activities! I love TA!
Helps Organize

This App helps organize information and helps decide places to try.
Great app to get a sense of eats/sights/adventures

Go to place for travel reviews
by Minimom2 on 2020/02/18 12:44
I never go anywhere without researching my trips on TripAdvisor
Nice app
by injured contractor on 2020/02/18 06:42
Nice app. Wish the forums stayed more current though. I tend to be a bit less mainstream, yet still like to find cool things
No car reservations???
by Red wine mama on 2020/02/18 04:13
Hate the upgrade. I just need to make a car reservation like I did less than a month ago. Now the app won’t let me. Do not like.
Essential for travelers
by cheapblackdad on 2020/02/18 03:56
This is the app for all of us who always have to have a trip or two waiting for us on the horizon. TripAdvisor is where we start much our travel planning. From the Cayman Islands, Orlando and Disney World, both coasts of Mexico, various spots in Florida, Kauai, Maui, and various cities throughout the US, tripadvisor has been a trusted source of Information for countless trips over the years. The forums are a great place to get objective advice and feedback from other travelers’ experiences, and the reviews are essential for the savvy traveler.
Great for information and decision making
by Tangled web_unwoven on 2020/02/18 03:50
Bar none, my go to for starting my research on where I might spend my time and money. Great for places to stay, eat and especially for things to do. But as a frequent reviewer I’d like it to be easier to enter reviews especially when I need to edit typos or update a review with new or better information.
Came here for Dave and Tim 2020 - and ready for 2021
by Kat1204- on 2020/02/18 02:18
We booked here for the Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds three day concert and would come back for the resort alone - though we are actually coming back for Dave and Tim 😁. The resort is fabulous - we stayed in the Sunrise section. The rooms are huge, and oh so comfortable. I spent three hours in our (huge) ocean view balcony terrace today and am looking forward to lounging in our ocean view double size jacuzzi. Really. You cannot beat the food - delicious, abundant, varied. The service has been exceptional. Personal shout outs to: Carlos, a server at Asadero restaurant - someone needs to make him a manager ASAP. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, service-oriented, helpful, cannot say enough. My background is in hotels and he definitely puts time into learning everything about the company he works for so he can answer every question I had, as well as showing a deep interest in his own restaurant, menu items, flavor profiles, you name it. A first class server and all around good person. Ask to be seated in his section - you won’t be disappointed! Carmen, message therapist at Awe Spa - I had a wonderful 80 minute aromatherapy massage with her. She is lovely, strong (found all my back knots and worked them out), professional and kind. I truly recommend her!
Productiva
by rmiranda852 on 2020/02/18 02:17
La app ha mejorado al pasar de los años. Es muy conveniente y accesible. Lo único malo es que no tiene todos los negocios y para registrar uno es mucho trabajo.
Great
by Haptowns on 2020/02/18 01:39
Very useful app for planning travel. Couldn’t do without it for hotels and restaurants. However, the mobile app is not user friendly for leaving reviews or adding new restaurants or places that aren’t listed
Stop making this app worse!
by Ebby4210 on 2020/02/18 01:22
It used to be so easy to find the best restaurant near me. Now this app is a convoluted mess. And now I can’t even rate the app without creating a stupid nickname. I’m done with this app.
Ripped off on my first purchase.
by d-trick3000 on 2020/02/18 01:02
Ripped off and can’t even contact Tripadvisor support because they won’t allow it on this iOS app or Safari. I was able to use Chrome but then the site locked up at setting the password.
Clumsy navigation
by Sort of helpful on 2020/02/18 00:40
I appreciate lodging and dining reviews, but I don’t like app preference settings, specifically lack thereof, for the iPhone . While I normally use U.S. dollars, I searched for prices in Euros while in Germany last fall, and app preferences aren’t holding on phone, although I’ve had better results on my pc.
My Source
by JoeAnthony3 on 2020/02/18 00:17
I have been writing reviews for a little bit and try to keep up as we visit new cities and places. I try more so for gluten free options as I am celiac, which I know is very difficult to eat out and roll the dice every time I do, but if I want to live life outside of my kitchen I have to trust places. I of course do my homework and with the help of this site I find it a little more trusting in the post I read from others.

TripAdvisor is great
by Macluva mellowncalm on 2020/02/17 23:39
It helps me keep track of where places are I enjoy. It is actually helping others. I need more people to evaluate my reviews. Like I do. I wish rewrites would get more back from TripAdvisor. And places. I also enjoy going and doing things and sharing it. Let’s work together on this
Love the App!

Finding booked Trips

This is the most difficult app I’ve ever used for finding trips already booked. The query should be on the first page and clearly marked.

Prices don’t match what’s shown in hotel search.

I traveled to New Zealand and Australia for vacation. I use the TripAdvisor app just about everywhere I go. So much great information all in one place. I would say that around 90% of the time I am pleased with what I have planned using the app.
Food and Service were outstanding

Self explanatory. Trip Advisor is a great way to see what’s worth doing and what’s worth seeing. Not only that, it makes you think about your experiences and cements them in your head as great memories. Get it off your chest: write a review!
Love this!

We look at TripAdvisor for every trip. It’s good to hear what other travelers say before going. Highly recommend!
Useless
by Berryrain on 2020/02/16 20:20
The app is changed and useless now unless you want to read social media posts. Where are the direct links to things to do and restaurants? I don’t want to go to only the paid vendors. Looking for a different travel app now
Outstanding!!

I use Trip advisor frequently when road tripping and preplanning. Hasn’t steered me wrong, yet. I’m not sure as to whether or not my reviews have shown up; but I appreciate yours so will keep trying to do my share.
Hear what other visitors feel about where you may experience
by dadtimes 3 on 2020/02/16 16:34
Great app to be able to reading others’ opinions and thoughts about various tourism places. Love the reviews some are awesome and accurate and others are interesting based on various points of view. Get the full picture with TripAdvisor!
Much Less Like Yelp Than I Would Prefer
by Dok Hollywood on 2020/02/16 16:27
As is in the title, the app works a lot less like Yelp. I like Yelp. I *need* Yelp. However, this comes as close as I can find to a Yelp for travelers; so, as much as I would wish it otherwise, it will have to do.
Love it for business and personal trips!
by NuclearWynter on 2019/02/24 19:29
I travel quite a bit for business and even more for pleasure and this app is perfect for both. On business trips, I can put in the city I’m visiting and when I’m going and it gives me restaurants options and the most popular things to do. I can read reviews from other helpful travelers that give me thing to looks out for and best times to go places. When I travel for pleasure, I start with Trip Advisor. I get a destination in mind and save hotels/vacation homes, activities and transportation info to the trip and have it all planned out before I book. I also use the app for planning with others. I planned a girls trip to Jamaica with my friends and was able to send them the details to review before we booked. I was able to book a lake house in NC for a Thanksgiving dinner my family is planning this year. I think the next step for the app is allowing splitting of payments for different things or allowing multiple payers. Also being able to joint plan a trip would be nice. Overall though I have no complaints about the app and love using it. I love leaving reviews for places I’ve been an helping other fellow travelers.
This is the best place to find ratings and details about hotels, restaurants, etc.
by Bob WW on 2019/11/01 15:59
I evaluate most of the hotels, restaurants, and local sights on TripAdvisor. I only rarely have to give bad ratings since I have checked in advance on TripAdvisor. By reading many reviews you can quickly get a good idea of each rated place. Note that some reviewers are always negative - either they are never satisfied or they are so grumpy that they have brought out the worst in everyone they meet. When hundreds of visitors have given a place “excellent” or “very good” ratings, usually the few bad ratings are due to such trolls. I usually do read several negative ratings - bad days do occur and there are flaws in everything and it can help you to notice those flaws - but if most people liked it, I will probably like it too. I have used “Yelp” at times for restaurant reviews (sometimes searching sends me to Yelp). It is ok, but I have not usually found it more convenient. I am less familiar with it - and I have never posted a rating there. If I have to sign in each time, this is the last time you will hear from me.
It’s a very useful app but has some flaws
by Spunky Traveller on 2019/07/27 05:01
I can’t leave home without it as it helps bring the world to me. Reviews and recommendations are typically spot on. However, it can be a bit clumsy when it comes to searching. I put in day trips/tours in Dar es Salaam and I keep getting safari results for 3-15 days. Not sure what part of “day” the app does not understand. Also, I booked a trip that has not existed for about a year and was none refundable. When I tried to cancel on the app, it warned me that I would lose 100% of the cost. I reached out to the tour operator via WhatsApp and fortunately, they were gracious enough to inform me that they no longer do that tour and will fully refund. TripAdvisor needs to stay on top of operational tours. Finally, whenever I book a tour through TripAdvisor, things generally go smoothly except for when they don’t. The reply button to the tour operator contained within the confirmation email seldom works. All in all, I enjoy using this app as my go to travel companion. I don’t even need to research ahead of time (I know, lazy right? ;) and the idea that I can travel on the fly and have TripAdvisor app do all the legwork is ever so appealing. It would have been 5 star but for all the issues listed above!
Can not report response after bad review
by Cj of MDR on 2019/11/27 19:11
My issue with Trip Advisor is they block you from providing any updates until 90 days later after posting negative review. My post of review from Sheraton Hotel Marina in San Diego November 2019 received a response from Sheraton. They posted they want to talk further to me about issues that took place at time of visit. I have responded twice to their email that they provided in their response post. I have had no response at all from Sheraton. If they really wanted to speak to me they should have provided a valid phone number and contact person in their response. Posting an email address but never acknowledging my emails back per their posted request, just makes it looks like they( Sheraton) made an effort. Trip Advisors blocks me from reporting this to travelers until after 90 days. Thus, current travelers seeking real time information will not be given up to date information from travelers that have experienced recent issues that could impact current travelers. So reading allowed posting without allowing immediate updates makes Sheratons attempt to work out issues meaningless. Trip Advisors followers will not know that Sheraton has failed to actually resolve issue and fail to acknowledge my 2 emails back to their request. I consider this deliberately misleading travelers.
Always use TripAdvisor! Helps so much in travel advice .
by Sue Ban on 2019/07/30 04:58
We try and take a yearly vacation and visit new place in our travels. As some, we save to have the best time, see as much as we can for great value. It’s always so helpful reading others experiences and thoughts. our trip to Germany last year we found amazing tours to several castles in a luxury coach. Trust me I was skeptical about spending a little extra $, but ready several different takes on it we were sold. Thank goodness we did, the other bus was packed as we had only30 people. It was amazing! We also used the advice of a smart travel in St. Lucia. A private van took us all over the island that the cost of a busy tour bus would of. Plus we we’re head of all the buses, so we beat the crowds. We even use TripAdvisor for restaurants when we head to different cities through the year. Yes, people have different likes but reading other reviews helps us find some awesome handed treasures. I could go on and on, but you just need use it, it’s a great way to help with some many things. Make your life easy be advised😎
Love this app but use improvements
by Teddy bear babe on 2018/08/18 17:29
I use this app almost every time we go to a new city to find what food is good and where to eat. That being said there are some improvements I would like to see. 1. For vegetarians and vegans the app can be a little difficult to navigate. One change I would like to see is in phrasing and searching filters. There is a difference between vegetarian/ vegan restaraunts and a restaurant having vegan/vegetarian options. The app currently does not show the difference which can be vexing. 2. Another change I would like to see is in the search. Often times i go on here to find food between point a and point b but currently there is not a way to search along that route or slightly off from it. Yes you can go through each address and see but for tourists this can be difficult and additional time to your task. It’s a good time to mention that even if these changes don’t occur I will keep using the app but it would be nice to see a change to help support those of us with different diets. And not just non-meat eaters but, gluten free eaters, paleo people or even those that have a lot of allergies to food such as nuts, milk, eggs and more.
I found many people to be rude for no reason
by TiNyJALEPENO on 2019/03/08 15:56
I suggest looking elsewhere and honestly reddit is much more helpful. I posted a couple things, but they were simple questions about atms. People then told me I should research and soon I would be asking about shootings where I am staying? I don’t get how I can be so stupid for simply asking about the atms and which ones to use because people’s cards were being read and used in Indonesia. I then went on to read multiple reviews and I was really taken back by how many unnecessarily rude people are on there. Some people on there do ask naive questions, but the point of the app is to help people. Anytime I told someone they were being rude my comment was deleted by the staff. I’m not sure why because I never cursed I just told the people they were being unnecessarily rude and pretentious. But maybe pretentious was taken as not following their guidelines? Because technically I called them a name? Not sure. Anyways besides people being not very helpful I also found reviews to be lacking. There are so many spots I went to in Puerto Escondido that were amazing and not mentioned. So I would suggest speaking to locals wherever you go. Trip advisor may be helpful to some, but honestly I think reddit is much better. I thought Yelp was bad, but this app and it’s staff are in no way helpful.
Great App But Could Use Improvements
by Island Sparkles on 2018/04/29 12:03
I use TripAdvisor quite often to review my experiences at hotels, restaurants and attraction areas as well as read the reviews of others when deciding on areas and places to visit. It would be great if TripAdvisor would add cruise lines to their portfolio of things that can be reviewed as I am getting ready to take a cruise and would love to share my experience when I return. I have had some difficulties when trying to write reviews for locations or places that are not yet listed in the app. This has been very frustrating as you do not realize that your review will not get published until after you go through all that effort to write the review and include pictures etc. Additionally, I would like to see some incentives or benefits for members that take the time to write all of these reviews to inform the general public of their experiences. I have written 105 reviews, and I have not yet received any type of incentives i.e. discounts to restaurants, hotels, attractions etc. Granted, I do not write these reviews for any type of reward. I write them because it benefits me when I read others reviews when trying to decide on things to do and places to go; however, I just think it would be nice for TripAdvisor to give some sort of gesture to show that they appreciate what we as reviewers do for them. Overall, I do enjoy using this app and will continue to use the app as needed because the benefits outweigh their need for improvements.
Love the app, however...
by Soflaguy63 on 2018/04/10 18:36
I have used the Trip Advisor app for years and found it to be very helpful. However, in this era of stored data abuses, I find it annoying that I can not erase my recent search history. Some will argue why this is an issue so I will share an issue that a co-worker had with the Trip Advisor app. My co-worker was planning on surprising his wife with a romantic mid-week trip at an oceanfront resort 40 miles from his home. He used Trip Advisor to find the best accommodations available. He has the Trip Advisor app on both his iPhone and iPad. After determining that this type of trip wasn’t in his budget, he decided to wait and save a little bit of money each week. Well, sometime later, his wife was using the iPad and Trip Advisor to research a restaurant in the area for a family dinner. While she was in the app, she noticed his history. She was also noticing that he was taking money from their savings account (money he was saving for their romantic weekend.) Anyhow, my co-workers wife’s man hating sister had her convinced that he was having an affair. No need to keep going on this story as I am sure you all get it. Once Trip Advisor allows search history to be deleted, I will amend my 2 star rating.
This is “legal” scam now!?
by Getinktattoo on 2019/06/29 17:09
I just changed phone and was trying to open TripAdvisor in my new one and just realize this craziness.... be aware... it doesn’t sound correct or even legal (but I guess that if the ask persuasion and we, the users, granted, then is on us.... one of the options to signing into TripAdvisor is using my google email/account... TripAdvisor request me roc ALLOW them to be able “to see and download all my google accounts emails addresses”!!!!! What is that!!! How is that to use an app about things to do or where to eat in any given area I need to pay that service with my privacy and the Privacy of the people that emails me!!!!!? Be aware! We all are used to the “scroll down and agree” and select box and agree to be able to use most accounts and apps now day... must of the times are about fair use of apps and legal reasons..some other times is about allowing the apps to use our location and maybe cameras and being able to storage photos in our devices.... so we go ahead and click allow or agree just because we are so used to trust as no other way to get around or as part of the process... but what TripAdvisor is doing asking permission to see and download our private info... doesn’t sound right!! At all!!!
Great app but tired of some of the questions
by Hearing in LA! on 2019/03/06 22:45
I like the app and have used it for both evaluating and reviewing restaurants, hotels, and things to do all over the world. It is fairly easy to use but have found 1 issue that was only cleared up after I sent a message to Trip Advisor. When adding a new location of any type, a website or social media listing is shown being “optional.” I have found that if the new location does not have a website or not listed on social media, TA will reject the listing without explanation. This was very frustrating after going through all the detail of listing 2 new restaurants and having them rejected without explanation. There should be a note requiring website or social media address before going through details of a new listing. A point that not only perturbs but concerns me greatly is I am totally offended by constantly being asked if a restaurant offers halal food. It is very discriminatory to single this out. I do not nor will I ever eat this food so stop asking me this offense question!!!!
Really helps RVers, more & more as people utilize
by frequent TA user on 2018/02/19 02:30
In travel, this app is priceless! Particularly traveling to a new destination, helps tremendously with restaurant info. and directions! Ditto for events, attractions. Much better than Around Me, which we hardly use anymore. Even at home, we use it when the inevitable question “where should we go eat?” arises. Especially when wanting something other than our usual go-tos. Breakfast lunch or dinner, or even Happy Hr. it sure helps. Can really tell a difference in the App since we retired 3 years ago and began more extended RV trips - more RV parks and public campgrounds being listed and reviewed, all the time. Pictures help soo much as well as specific site info., amenities, when trying to find a place to camp. And Especially when looking for a place to eat, sightsee or shop for fresh seafood/meats in a new place, we find TA invaluable. The more people use and review, the better it gets. And the app updates have made it better. Keep up the good work, TA!
TripAdvisor is Fabulous
by jelainec on 2020/01/01 04:56
I had never heard of TripAdvisor until 2 years ago when my brother and his wife came to Cleveland. When I didn’t know how to get to Slyman’s (for the best corned beef and pastrami), my brother looked it up on TripAdvisor. Then when we were hungry for dessert (specifically custard), he pulls out his phone and looks up nearby custard/ice cream sellers and discovered Weber’s (the best vintage custard and ice cream!!) and Mitchell’s(fabulous gourmet milkshakes as well as marvelous ice cream)which we ended up indulging in on 2 different days! I was able to learn more about Northeast Ohio in the short time my brother was in town simply because he had a TripAdvisor app as his ‘go to’ for anything he wanted to see or do in the area! As soon as he went back to Texas, I got the TripAdvisor app for myself and have been thoroughly enjoying it and the places I have been able to visit and recommend as a result of his complete trust in its reliability and complete access to all the travel information he needs!!
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
Love The App Except . . .
by rekampam on 2019/03/04 16:06
One of the best Travel Apps available, with access to helpful reviews to help make better destination decisions. And because reasonable reviews help us make travel decisions, we also like to post solid reviews that might assist others. The one real difficulty with the Trip Advisor App is posting photos to reviews, even one’s own reviews. It seems that even when following Trip Advisor’s own HOW-TO directions, it is difficult to successfully add photos. Either the app wants access to all (thousands) of the photos on our devices, or using the “Profile/Intro/Upload The Photo/Add a Location Tag” method allows the app to see only the few photos in the “Camera Roll” and “My Photo Stream” folders, but will not allow access any of the specific “Albums” on our phone or tablet where individual trip photos are stored. If it wasn’t for the photo posting obstacle, the app would get 5 stars. It would be great if a simpler and more straightforward method was available for adding photos. Thanks very much.
Unfortunately, not the best app
by jimmm_nyc on 2019/02/19 04:12
The addresses and maps are often incorrect on TripAdvisor. Many times I’ve made location edits with TripAdvisor and a few times TripAdvisor has accepted & changed the map locations to the correct spot on the map. However, most often TripAdvisor does not edit the map information and the location continues to be completely incorrect. Therefore, I would not depend on TripAdvisor for the correct address or map location. Instagram will do this for you though, with lots of fantastic and beautiful photos on Instagram. There’s plenty of different apps and online resources for you to double check locations of hotel, restaurant, tours, etc because TripAdvisor is not trustworthy on giving the correct location. It’s almost like going to the doctor and getting a second opinion. Always double check the facts! TripAdvisor, I guess, is in its infancy stages and hopefully it will get better. Meanwhile, Instagram exceeds all the other apps for a lot of useful “sharing” information to help you make your decision of where to stay & eat.... & places to visit.
Golden Parnassus! Adults Paradise in Cancun
by cousin Reids dad on 2019/07/03 12:30
Just returned from a week with my two young adult children. It’s our third time there. Many of the guests are return visitors to the resort. I’ve met many guests that have been there ten times or more. The staff are second to none! The hardest working and most personable people in the industry. The food is good and plentiful and the drinks delicious and they keep them coming, One reason that many people return is because of the great service and personality of a bartender named Fonsi. Fonsi is a very hard working and genuine man. He can hold an interesting conversation with anyone. He’s smart , funny and just a magician at making drinks. He remembers your drink and never lets you run dry. If it’s advice that you need as far as where to go and what to do in Cancun, he’s ur guy. We really missed the body shots this year though, they were fun but for some reason not allowed anymore ??? Check it out! You will want to take half of the staff home with you!
Viking Cruise Venice to Athens
by kamabesu on 2019/04/13 15:57
What a remarkable 10 days. It was our first Viking Cruise and it was wonderful. The team that puts together the off ship tours is truly 5 star. The advertising on PBS is spot on. You really do have magical moments with the people of the country you are visiting. It is special and intimate. We had an operatic performance in a villa in Venice. The owner welcomed us to his family home of 700 years and served Prosecco from his vineyards. The performance of famous arias and duets was worthy of The Met. Bravo Don’t miss a day of touring they were all equally spectacular. Food off the ship is much better than on. The Italian Resturant was good. The Chefs table,poor. How many ways can you steam cod? How many courses can you embellish with “espoma “? I guess the answer is unlimited. Our Jr Suite was very spacious and the perk we especially used was free laundry and dry cleaning. The free mini bar was so so as it had lower quality liquor offerings. The crew was fabulous. Very kind and attentive. We look forward to our next Viking Cruise as the tours run seemlessly and are high quality.
The ratings they give to those who review is a scam!
by Dawn3547 on 2018/10/26 23:44
I have submitted nearly 100 reviews over the years which I have enjoyed doing but what bothers me is the “rewards” and badges given to those who review and the badgering they do to lure you into making more reviews to be “the top reviewer in your area”. Or, “you are 2 reviews away from receiving Photographer status”, etc!!!!! I write reviews in order to share my excitement or dissatisfaction with a place of service. The place has to be pretty bad for me to complain- the businesses we review can make or break someone’s business.... that’s a serious responsibility. I take re Jewish g seriously. My reason for 2 stars for Trip Advisor is the giving of rewards for which nothing is actually given. It’s enough reward for me to be able to help a fellow traveler but be straight with your reviewers. If you award “trophies” at least back them up with a small discount on a hotel, or a meal, etc! I am a member of many rewards clubs for gasoline, restaurants, or shopping venues. These are great perks and command my loyalty. Wouldn’t that be nice if Trip Advisor extended this appreciation to its reviewers? Just saying........😁
Dependably yummy!
by iachimo1 on 2019/01/15 22:37
December 2018: Took 2 out-of-town girlfriends. Very tasty lemony chicken breast with capers, rice, grilled asparagus (nightly special) and HGF burger with fries. Creme brûlée delicious. Not too noisy. Late October 2018: Took 7 out-of-town childhood girlfriends. Ultimately it turned out fine BUT a near fiasco at first: our reservation was lost (even though we’d called twice); we ended up after a 30 minute wait asking to seat us anywhere; we ended up as a table of 4 up front and a table of 3 in the very back. Fortunately, everyone liked what they’d ordered: lasagna, a shrimp and pasta dish, chicken, bison burger. Sorry can’t recall more specifically, but basically from the menu. The waitress gave each table a dessert gratis and we loved the creme brûlée! Early October 2018: my companion and I loved our late dinner at the bar! Bison burger for me was tasty, not greasy, nicely topped with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Companion’s chicken sandwich was goodly sized, nicely fried and well seasoned. He really liked the fries too. Wonderful bartender- can’t recall his name, darn it! Lucky to have this in lil ole Weaverville.
Wonderful accommodations and great staff!
by Groovy mini on 2018/04/19 19:23
We stayed at Melia Cozumel over three weeks last month from February 24th through March 12th, 2018. Everything was fantastic, want to give particular high marks to the following employees: Hilario, the beach waiter who was always eager to bring what we wanted- we dont usually drink much but probably did on the days he worked:) Alicia our maid who remembered that we need extra waters for medication etc.. Alberto the waiter in the buffet area who is so friendly and taught us Mayan words , like “show-pee” that means finished, all done. Hassell went over and above at the concierge and the other girl, Tania, was very helpful to assist my calling the airline to extend our trip and help with Spanish translating. Sandra from the office did a good job setting it all up for us. Bryan was very helpful with my printing a few important documents, so patient and calm. Martin, the younger waiter at breakfast was very polite and refilled the coffees quickly. Tania helpful at concierge. On our last night, Jose at at dinner buffet with good with the wine refills. Antonio at breakfast always came with more coffee and water. Those are the standouts I took notes about, although I have to say not one of the staff were ever rude, the activities team was funny and friendly and even though we didnt participate in anything but maybe Bingo once they made us feel welcome if we wanted to. Another enjoyable stay and we look forward to next time! Thank you!
Lothian motorcoach trip from Edinburgh
by slamminpam on 2019/09/28 19:57
My friend and I took a day tour with Lothian motorcoaches out of Edinburgh on 27Sept2019. Our driver was Ian and guide was Scott. Being the handsome lad he is, Scott really should have been in a kilt! Our day trip was to Loch Lomond, The Trossachs and Doune Castle. Now, being the Outlander fan that I am, when I found out this Castle was used as Castle Leoch in the Outlander,I was definitely all in. Thus trip did not disappoint. Scott really should be a stand up comedian. The “history lesson” was delivered in such a way that it was never boring! He had us all in stitches!! I would definitely recommend this trip and make sure to get Scott, if possible. Now, the “icing on the cake”for me was when Scott chased me four blocks after I got off the bus to return my purse that I had left on the seat!! Lord... what a life saver this man was! I will say, the ONLY thing that could have made this trip better, was for Scott to be in a kilt!! I mean, it IS Scotland after all. Pamela D. Florida. USA
A day for me in the air on China Eastern Airlines
by gene and ilana go to Asia on 2018/01/28 07:38
Ilana and I were so excited about our first trip to Asia. Thailand and Cambodia were a dream we’ve had for what seems to be forever. But truthfully I was dreading the long flight. The longest part was from JFK to Bangkok and I imagined us getting there and losing another day sleeping off the jet lag. So we booked our travel in business class for the first time. It was a delight. The service was excellent. From the moment we checked in. Their lounge at the airport was very comfortable. The food on the plane was beautifully prepared and served and the lay flat beds were amazing. We slept 11 of the 14+hours to Shanghai and after a short layover we were on our way again for the final part of our trip. We arrived fresh and ready to tour an exciting city. And it was a pretty good deal cost wise as well compared to the price we got for business class on other airlines. Over all, a great start to our 2 weeks in Asia.
Historic Scotland Explorer Pass
by dmnurse2016 on 2019/06/12 21:26
We were gently pressured to buy the 5 day Historic Scotland Explorer Pass on our visit to Stirling Castle. The ticket concession seller described how we would be saving money and “avoiding the long lines” to buy tickets to enter Edinburgh Castle or any of the 77 Historic Scotland places. We spent 3+ hours enjoying Stirling Castle and had a decent lunch there. 2 days later we went to Edinburgh and entered the Edinburgh Castle. It was cold, windy and very uncomfortable after 1 hour doing the guided tour and the castle guide suggested a pub for lunch instead of eating at the castle cafeteria. We went to the one he suggested, warmed up and returned to see the rest of the castle. When we attempted to re-enter the castle, we were told that our “pass” entitled us to ONE visit to any of the sites. We explained the NO ONE had described this limit on the pass. She then went to page 3 of the pass and showed us the fine print. We were then told even though NO ONE had warned of this limitation on the pass, that if we wanted to go into the castle after our lunch break, we “could buy another ticket”. We decided not to be ugly Americans and left after letting them know we thought it was quite unfair.
Could be Better
by DaddyOBest on 2019/07/09 12:43
Several flaws that should be fixed for smartphones and some for pcs. Major flaw is adding quick bites to eating establishments. There are no rules on this and restaurants are changed to quick-bites because of someone’s answer etc. By doing this, they are no longer listed as restaurants. Major problem is if you are looking for a great place to eat, TA searches restaurants by default!!! Guess what? The favorite eating place you are looking for doesn’t show up because it is quick-bites. The only way around this is going through several filtering screens and click restaurants and quik-bites when doing a search. I didn’t find this for 6 months and always missed great restaurants. These restaurants missed had order at the counter, bring out your food and refill drinks sometimes but were called qb. I even ran across places that took your order at the table but were labeled qb. TA please fix this and have an easy to find suggestions area to alert you to these problems and many more with feedback given to reporters.
Bill’s Front Porch
by blueeyeddarlin on 2018/12/01 00:39
Hidden Gem in Wilmington especially when you get to see and hear Folkstone Stringband! Lucky enough to be at Bill’s Front Porch when they had live music with a phenomenal Bluegrass Band named Folkstone Stringband! Beers are housemade and the new “Christmas Pants” is smooth and not too sharp. With the romaine lettuce scare, salads are a little slack but still delicious 🍁 quesadilla s are delicious especially the brisket. Their cheese dip is house made but is a little floury not cheesy enough . The craft brews are great with a variety of taste experiences. From the sharp citrus based IPA’s to the smooth new Christmas brew called “Christmas Pants”. By far the smoothest of all the craft brews Bill’s makes. Two members of the waitstaff are the best I’ve encountered. Lindsey and Sandy are some of the best waitstaff I have had. Attentive and on top of everything. Ask for them, you won’t be sorry. They are great!!! Overall Bills is a great eating and drinking establishment, Good food and beverage, but add the great music of Folkstone Stringband and you have a winning combination!
Plastic Surgery
by cherrydelo on 2018/09/15 13:27
Dr Enrique Alejandro is so so good. I did a lot of research on surgeons in Guadalajara, or Dr Alejandro does most of his work, and compared his technique, his skills, and his training with the best surgeons in New York. My sister-in-law had had work done by Dr. uses the same technique and she looks amazing. I did my research and Dr Alejandro uses the latest under the muscle technique not used by many because they have not had the training. He takes his time and treated me as an individual piece of art, sculpting my face in a way that did not change the way I look but a younger version of myself. I don’t look like “ i’ve had work done”. I’m just younger looking. The Elaen Center in Nuevo Vallarta Connect to the San Javier hospital is clean, the staff professional and caring. Not only that but he would contact me to check up on me, to have me come in for regular checks up without extra charge. He’s young, professional and takes immense pride in his work.
Lost confidence
by marinadoug on 2019/01/28 14:53
My wife and I always check out the reviews for hotels and restaurants and have had great results. The reviews reflect accurately what our experiences have been. We have to weed out some of the negative reviews, some people just have to vent when the world just doesn’t go their way. But now TA is rating with their “Best Value”. My wife and I travel to many of the same cities for work and have learned where to stay and not to stay. Their Best Value is completely false and we must say a completely fake rating for us the consumer. We can’t begin to understand any logic in these ratings. There is no cost association and for sure there is no quality association. We are guessing that TA has sold out to who will pay the most. In the end we have lost confidence in anything they say now and feel we must check other sites to be sure of all our future choices for hotels and restaurants. Such a shame, it was such a good site, you can still switch to consumer ratings....but have they sold out to the highest bidder there, if they are ok making a fake Best Value are they ok with making or modifying reviews to the highest bidder and they become fake.

A great resource when traveling
by KashmirX on 2019/04/04 01:39
I come to rely on this app to find great restaurants in areas I never been before. My coworkers brag about the places I discover from this app. I use it when picking out hotels as well. The reviews help prevent me from staying in some dives. Just because it is $30 cheaper a night than the other hotels doesn’t mean it is a deal. I have made the mistake of saving $5 on a hotel and regretting to this day. Read the reviews and look for patterns in the reviews, do your due diligence on the reviewers also. If a reviewer gave a place a bad grade does that person ever give anyone a good review or is it even their first review. Find out why a business, restaurant or hotel got received a good review or bad review. Then decide if you want to visit that business. This app will save you time and money if you use it and you can find some rare hidden treasures while traveling or right in your hometown.
I use it daily to locate the best dining hotels, etc
by Fishin' Dan on 2019/06/22 19:45
An Example: my wife & I were driving home from Branson last week, decided to stop for lunch in Harris, Ark., opened trip advisor and searched for “Nearby” restaurants. We found Jessi’s and it was a hidden gem, would have never believed that a restaurant this good would be there. We then continued on and found an extremely good value hotel (Econo lodge) on the outskirts of Little Rock. We could tell from the Traveler reviews that this was a great place to stay the night, and it turned out to be true, absolutely. we then searched for for nearby restaurants, using “Cajun & Creole” dining offerings in the search filter. “Copeland’s came up , and it was wonderful. These examples are from just one day of several hundred days of traveling in the last three years. Trip adviser has been an essential part of our travels, and we’d be “travel dysfunctional” if we didn’t have it in the future.
3 in 1 Tulum, Snorkeling, cenote/cave expedition in Cancun
by Amy Crossfit on 2019/04/06 21:12
What an amazing experience! Our guides Pepe and Juan picked my so and I up at our resort on time and they were very attentive to the group. They had snacks and water available for us as it was going to be 8 hours before we got to eat lunch. They were very knowledgeable with the history of the Talum Ruins and they made us laugh during this tour. They knew all of our names and took time to take pictures for us too. They were experienced snorkeler and made sure we were all safe. Pepe and Juan made the tour of the cenote and caves so amazing! The lunch was at the cenote site and was fairly good but it was the company of the people in the group that made the lunch so enjoyable. By the end of the day the group became a mini family and we bonded with each other and to our guides. It truly was sad to leave them all and I will remember each member of our group forever!!! Thank you Pepe and Juan!!!
Very useful for travel
by JudyB429 on 2019/11/10 01:02
I like access to menus when looking for restaurants and if the place requires me to sign in to Facebook, I will NOT. Some people don’t even use it and there are many warnings not to sign in to FB except to use it. Restaurants should be advised they may be losing business because of this. Having the menu link on the Trip Advisor is best, but a link to the website is ok. Many domains are for sale which makes one question if they are still in business. If a place does go out of business, they should let TA know. The more details given for a hotel, restaurant or attraction, the better, but information should be up to date. Hours open, price and directions are helpful. I appreciate when a hotel listing shows restaurants nearby. Trip Advisor should be aware if they stop advertising or boycott a place or TV program, they run the risk of losing customers—maybe more than they gain. Stick to travel and stay out of politics.
Prom pics at the Benson
by rebelmom999 on 2018/04/08 05:21
We have stayed at the Benson several times when downtown for events. This weekend was prom and we had plans to take pics at the Japanese Gardens. Unfortunately Oregon had other ideas. In a panic to come up with a dry option for pics I remembered the lovely lobby of the Benson. The valet was sweet and agreed to keep the Jeep up front so the kids didn’t have to park and walk through the rain to get to the lobby. The staff watched for 20 minutes while we captured their wonderful prom in photos before a manager stomped up to inform us that if we weren’t paying for an event we weren’t allowed to take pics in their lobby in order to preserve the “reputation of the Benson”. I thanked him and explained the rain caused us to scramble for an appropriate indoor venue for prom pics. I know the floor staff knew policy and yet allowed the kids this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Benson Hotel. The pics were gorgeous and the kids were thrilled.
Everything I Want To Know Beforehand!
by Artess1 on 2019/08/12 22:10
Pick a topic: restaurants, hotels, local color and the opportunity to make RSVPs; I find the Trip Advisor App covers almost everything I want to know about and prepare for before I depart. 1. I particularly find mention of “actual menu items” (whether or not available the next time)helpful in understanding what well traveled members have found the restaurants actually prepare & serve well. 2. Hotel Information from travelers, especially regarding it’s location to local landmarks in international cities, is very helpful. 3. Local Color information is invaluable when trying to decide what to pack for the day trip: water bottle, bug juice, etc. and understanding areas mobility & necessary time to allow. 4. Can’t mention enough how helpful & reliable the opportunity for various excursion & meal RSVPs thru the Trip Advisor App has been on trips to Paris, Giverny, London, Rome & Positano, etc.
One Of My Top Five Apps!
by Mike22233 on 2017/10/31 19:40
I have used TripAdvisor for nearly ten years. I never travel or try a new restaurant without searching the site and reading the reviews. Recently, I have booked hotels and dinner reservations more frequently using the site. I have read some of the other reviews. I disagree with most of the criticism. I understand that this is a free site and that there is a company behind it that has commercial needs. However, if you have spent enough time using the site and the app, you will recognize the advertising. It's easily maneuvered to find the strictly objective advice. For example, I would prefer that the site did not default to "Best Value" ranking when searching hotels, as it is not fully reflective of hotel rankings by users. However, provided that you remember to change the default setting on each search to "Traveler Ranked", you can find the objective data.
Dorothy Martin, Home 2 Suite, Hilton
by pecfulbeing on 2019/10/20 18:40
Recently, I had the daunting task of driving by myself, from Florida to New England. As a disabled woman with acute spinal issues, a cat, and a lot of luggage, I proceeded north to New England. It was a bit harrowing. However, I had the good fortune of meeting Dorothy Martin who was working behind the front desk of Home2Suite in Queensbury, NY. If everyone at any hotel had the attitude and mindset of Dorothy Martin there would not be a hotel on the planet that would be unable to bump its rating off the chart. Short of standing on her ear, I don’t there is a thing Dorothy would not do to assist her guest. Stand up and take notice please. She has an unending work ethic, she is kind and knowledgeable. Dorothy would ask for help if needed (thought I doubt she would need help) another indicator of a wise employee. Please stand up and take note of this smart, talented, gregarious, customer oriented woman working a beautiful Hilton hotel. Thank You, Linda Stultz
How the World Communicates
by EddieStarr on 2019/06/05 22:49
When you want to know about something you come to TripAdvisor it’s just what you do when you want to learn about experiences fine photography no price points maybe find some good professional tips on how to avoid long lines something really special about a venue and maybe learn something that you’ve never known before so when you go and visit you find something special and Magical Place , TripAdvisor lets you do all of that and much much more, it’s like a collective consciousness of knowledge a dynamic body of growth, each day adds new experiences and people talk about them here , this is where the road comes to communicate and this is where you should come to get information on your next trip and if you have the chance look me up I have a couple reviews and places for you to go it’s a wonderful World let TripAdvisor show you where to go 🙏🏻
While traveling, will NOT eat a meal without cking
by Calif Travelers on 2019/10/31 17:23
My wife and I are recently retired and for the past 5 years have traveled for anywhere between 2 months and 4 months at a time in Europe and SE Asia. When it comes time to find a restaurant for a good AND RELIABLE meal, we ALWAYS check Trip Advisor. The restaurant must meet our filters and have at least 2-3 recent (within 2 or 3 months) positive viewer reviews. When we have followed those personal rules we have yet to have either a bad or surprisingly expensive tourist trap meal. While recently in Italy a friend traveling with us saw a posted menu and before I cld ck Trip Advisor we were in the restaurant and seated. Our meal was tasteless AND OVERLY EXPENSIVE. We walked right into a typical tourist trap!!! Since it was only a lunch we didn’t make a big deal out of it but our friend learned a quick lesson, because afterwards he wld always ask me to find a place to eat !!
Wow - Pasta !!
by JohnZen99 on 2019/04/02 10:43
We ran into this place by accident.... then read about it. We liked the look of the place - very funky but intimate. It seemed to (by comments) have devolved into something slightly ‘touristy’ these days. So we were confused but liked the hand written menu. We read and heard from the greeter that it was important to get a reservation.....(“Don’t be late, you have an hour and a half to eat.”). With all that we waited outside for the place to open at 8 sharp. The prices seemed a tad high when we ordered. TO SUM: The paparredali (sp?) I had was the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. The bisteka I had was tasty. Both dishes were VOLUMINOUS. Very large portions. My wife had the house specialty pasta and lamb. We could have just ordered one pasta dish and a ‘secondi’ and been fine. The atmosphere was terrific, the hard working server and owner/host were friendly. In short - this was 4.5 stars and a nice nice place to discover.
Navigation

I wrote a review and got auto corrected, didn’t catch it and now I cannot find the EDIT thing. Haven’t seen now if they send me an email to review and edit before it is actually published though. Also It would be nice if somehow the app interfaced with a map without having to go in and out of the app. Many times I am trying to find hotels, restaurants, attractions by locations and proximity and I get tired of having to go back and forth, would be nice to be able to ‘pin/ sticky’ note stuff within the TA app so I don’t have to figure it out all over again. I’ve started taking out my paper map and using sticky notes which works but would be nice to have something user friendly like that within TA app. I have used this app for many years and try to add a review each time I go someplace, and I really depend on this when I travel. Now I just tried to submit and it says my nickname is taken, it’s my nickname so what’s up?
TripAdvisor is both good start AND ending!
by "Juanito" on 2019/10/28 21:37
I have long used TripAdvisor as one of my starting points when planning, or even just thinking about travelling. The information is almost always timely, especially when there is current information from contributors. Unfortunately, as I am a “Digital Dinosaur”, it has been a challenge for me to upload specific/designated information and some long-labored-over documents have yet to be accepted/published. This is very frustrating to me, especially when my information is very current & relevant. Also, I dislike not always getting instantaneously published, unlike some other competing websites. Oftentimes, once I’ve completed my odyssey, I need clarification of particular details, which I can find at their site. I both use and contribute to TripAdvisor. I highly recommend it, and it certainly gets my “Wheel of Approval!” FULL DISCLOSURE: I also own a bit of stock in this fine company,
Randles Hotel Review
by JLK MD on 2019/09/14 18:02
My wife and I had a nice stay in Killarney at The Randles Hotel until the last night and morning. Our itinerary required us to be picked up by our driver at 0530 for the airport trip. We talked with a front desk person the afternoon prior to our early departure. She promised us (and made a notation in a book) that we could get coffee and something cold by the night porter at 0500 the next morning. With our luggage, we arrived at the dining room door at 0500 in search of coffee and something. We were not expecting hot food but they advertise 24 hour room service and we had the desk clerk’s promise. The night porter saw us from the room above and asked what we were doing. We explained our story. His response to our breakfast question was: “What, at 5 AM?”. I then returned to our room. My wife was later offered coffee alone. The porter apologized to me for the mix up but assured me it was not his fault. I told him it was not our fault. He was the hotel representative at that time and failed in his responsibility. I left with a bad impression after that interaction.
Playa Grande 2017 new year
by Ycnibrc on 2018/01/01 04:34
Well first impression is good. Facility is clean and the hosts and staff are nice. I choose building O for the nice view and short walk to the beach. Building P was all booked. The 1 bedroom is nice and spacious with kitchen 2 bathroom 2 balcony. Get the higher floor 3 or above for better view. We have our first dinner at calina restaurant and it was good. If u want some free credit for food and beverage then do the time share breakfast if u dont care then skip it. The pool is nice and heated i think its a salt water pool it tase like salt water. Beach is very nice however because of the drop off near shore they recommend no swimming but theres people still swim. The beach is very quiet not crowded like cancun mostly because of the current undertow so not too many people swimming. You can walk to the left of the beach and climb over a rock mount then u will be at lovers beach which u can swim and u can see the land end rock arch.
Bead Waiter Review
by THS Trainer on 2019/08/05 16:48
On a recent trip to the Grand Serenis Riviera Maya in Cancún, Mexico we had a very good experience with all the staff we came in contact with. To mention one particular Head Waiter we had whose name is Aurelio, he went several extra miles in providing us with outstanding personal service. Glasses were never empty and his assistance with placing our food orders was imcomparable. Bell Boy, Juan Carmona, was second to none in providing personal attention. From the first time he picked us up in his golf cart to the last, he could not have given us any better personal service. He would stop and offer us rides whenever he saw us walking around the resort. Made us feel extremely special. Also Guest Services Manager, Giles Gautier was very helpful, knowledgeable and personable in assisting us with questions and resort amenities. This was a great place to stay because of the helpful and friendly staff.
Still doesn’t get basics right
by TruliaReviewer on 2019/10/27 00:58
Am one of Trip Advisors Top Contributers with 100,000+ readership and have been watching Trip Advisor updates for 5+ years now but I’m disappointed with the progress of the App and website over the years. It’s annoying that they still don’t get basics right for ex. if I submit a new place I don’t get a notification/email. As another example they continue to track history without permission or providing a way to edit/delete history (violating basic privacy laws and ignoring multiple user complaints). Yet another example is limiting restaurant reviews to 100 characters in the app. Not changing app orientation based on phone direction is another limitation. Instead of getting the basics right they have focused on useless things like the ridiculous number and type of badges and most recently trying to replace helpful votes with followers (and with a recent update I started getting feeds from N number of random sources even though I follow nobody).
Three Rs at the Residence Inn, Myrtle Beach
by Margaret and Jim on 2019/04/13 15:06
During the week of March 25,2019, Margaret and I enjoyed a very pleasing stay at the new Residence Inn at Myrtle Beach. Fun recreation, tasty refreshments and timeless relaxation. Joe May, Savanah and Paula responded to our needs at the front desk, and Clarissa, Tasha and Teresa ensured that our suite was refreshed each day. Charles at the bar helped with liquid refreshments, and Queens, Donna, Patricia and others provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Dinner at the hotel was sumptuous. Sea Captain’s House and Damon’s served tasty lunches each day. Take you to Glenn for assisting with the television hookup. Although the hotel opened less than two weeks prior to our arrival, minor construction and installation tasks were underway, with no impact on our stay. Chris Funderburk , Sree Organization provided us with a snapshot of the remaking tasks, and offered advise on other Sree operates hotels. Beginning with Mr. May, thank you all for a fantastic, pleasurable vacation.
Hector’s in Mazatlan
by kueso on 2017/11/12 19:36
This Was not a fine dining experience as we expected. I would’ve felt more welcome at Burger King and been better taken care of. Our whole experience from ordering to checking out was less than 45 minutes. The waiter took our drink order and we only got one Cube of ice after requesting a full glass. After he brought Iceless tea, I ordered a glass of red wine and never received it. The prawn spaghetti was good as was the risotto. I had the lasagna and Stouffers makes better. We were served our food & received no further attention from any of the waiters despite asking for ice and salt and pepper. We asked several times for the check and when we finally received it, we paid part in pesos and put part on the credit card. We told him to put 605 pesos on the card and he came back and had charged us 620. We will never go back here again. There were people at every table when we arrived but by the time we left 45 minutes later the place was relatively empty. People did not seem to be enjoying their dining experience either.
Marietas Snorkel, Whale Watching, kayak and paddle board Boat #1
by lettergram on 2019/02/16 03:49
We went out in Boat #1 with Pablo. It was SO much fun! Booked this as an excursion with our cruise. The crew did a phenomenal job. They were professional and courteous, knowledgeable and ENTERTAINING. They filled the travel time with such entertaining dance and music routines. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll comedy show was AWESOME. The snorkeling, paddle boards and kayak was very well done and organized. We were able to see some interesting fish and we saw several whales and birds along the way. The lunch was very good as well as the drinks from the open bar. I was also impressed with the professional photographer on board that captured our day on film. No pressure to buy but he did such good work, we couldn’t resist buying the flash drive of our day. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat - it was the highlight of our cruise. Be sure to ask for BOAT #1 and Pablo’s crew!

Puerto Vallarta Mexico
by tykrause on 2020/02/20 13:49
Apple vacations lost our air travel itinerary for our way home. It was the most stressful way to end a vacation. We emailed them and they wanted to give us a 50$ voucher. One, we haven’t received it, two, it was the most infuriating thing we’ve experienced. We were in another country, with our confirmation, and we had to sit at baggage for two hours!!! I can’t see us booking with Apple vacations again.

We use the trip advisor app for all our trip planning. There’s lots of ideas for things to do and places to eat at destination points and along the way. We’ve asked questions and received useful tips in trip advisor forums. Hotel info and reviews are spot on. The app is very user friendly.
Commercialized and difficult to navigate
by JoJoMahMe on 2020/02/20 05:26
I barely use this site anymore and today reminded me why...it’s all advertising and little content. I would prefer to just see a lust of “things to do” in ranking order or have more options to weed out activities I’d never be interested in...really gone downhill here
Ok
by jCS319 on 2020/02/20 04:30
I use TripAdvisor a lot, but I prefer the internet version over the app. And the fact that I can’t upload .HEIC pictures is really frustrating.
Great App
by Crazyfamilyoffour on 2020/02/20 04:29
I’m enjoying planning our families summer day trips and weekend trips using this app. For longer trips, I appreciate the feature that allows me to place certain attractions on different days of my trip. I would suggest however, being able to view only the events and attractions listed under a certain day. For example, I plan a 5 day trip to Washington DC that includes a total of 49 (!) attractions that I have divided as I wish to see them amongst the five day stay. It would be great if I could click on day two for instance, and only see the attractions and events that I planned for that day so that it would be easier to see where the locations are on the map and it would be more efficient to rearrange my itinerary according to attractions and events that are close to one another. Thank you for adding the “add note” section for each attraction, as I use to write in hours of operation and cost of events so I can see it at a glance.

Organize your travel ideas
by Eyecantstop on 2020/02/20 02:05
I love Trip Advisor for keeping my travel ideas and inspirations organized in folders that I can quickly refer to. I’ve been adding to my Athens/Santorini folder for about a year and will get to put them into action in June. I’ve learned how wise the Trip Advisor reviewers are- once I didn’t heed the bad reviews on a Monterey, CA hotel and learned the hard way that it was a dump. (Luckily, got a refund.)

Thanks TripAdvisor family for truly shedding light on dreams!!!
Definitely doesn’t deserve 5 stars
by HhhhhI'm on 2020/02/19 23:56
Very mediocre, I’m here from New York , food is borderline terrible , I didn’t have a single meal that food was served hot , takes forever to get anything my the pool. Drinks are low/medium quality. Perhaps a place for Californian but definitely not a place to meet a New Yorker standard . I had to wait 25 mins to get a second room key...... asked for extra shampoo and conditioner as I have long hair and that never happened . Borderline mediocre place
My go-to for travel information
by Reddye59 on 2020/02/19 23:54
I always check trip advisor before every trip! I’m one of those people who research the heck out of every trip! I appreciate the feedback provided by other travelers! I read the “things to do” so I don’t miss anything! It’s my one stop shop for all travel related information!
Love this app
by HAKP57 on 2020/02/19 23:51
This is great. Lots of fun to review and very helpful when looking for opinions when traveling. It’s important to plan ahead and have an idea of what you’re getting into when traveling.
Reviews are worth reading
by bertabera on 2020/02/19 22:35
I always check Trip Advisor when traveling. Check for Restaurants, Hotels and things to do. I find the reviews to be helpful and star ratings on par.

Adler, the beach attendant at the Conrad Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, FL
by Jim & Stuart on 2020/02/19 21:36
Adler was extraordinary. Very attentive, cheerful and accommodating. He provided towels, umbrellas and advise with speed and a smile. He is an extremely hard worker and a real asset to the Conrad Hotel in Ft Lauderdale Florida.
Love and depend on the app when traveling
by TLC NH on 2020/02/19 20:57
Been using it for several years now, and for the most part find the reviews and descriptions dependable. Love that they for the most part provide links so that I can receive dependable information and book directly from the app. It is a vital part of my decision process in making my mind up on where to dine, sightseeing and trips. Overall I am very happy with Trip Advisor.
Elevate Your Trip
by Music_Educe on 2020/02/19 16:41
I’ve been a fan of the Trip Advisor app for years. But on a business trip to Las Vegas, I researched hotels adjacent to our convention center. We ended up in a super nice condo-style hotel, above the strip, yet completely away from the smoke and noise of the casino. Our co-workers wondered how we found such a great place for the same amount of money. Thank you, Trip Advisor!
Love the ability to organize
by McCreacray on 2020/02/19 16:36
I’ve used the app for a number of vacations. I love the reviews and I all ideas I get from peoples posts. It makes it like I’ve had a friend go before me and give me the inside scoop.
Flaws in and the app
by dinoannp on 2020/02/19 16:01
Here are my main complaints with the app: 1. I tried to put a specific location in Rome in to narrow my search but it doesn’t allow me to put that filter in 2. When it asks for me to put in the number of rooms in, it doesn’t allow me to put in a specific number of people in for room 1 and another number in for room 2
Useful app

Best travel site/app!
by FroggattFamily on 2020/02/19 13:41
Trip Advisor is our go-to site for all our travels. We find it easy to use and accurate. We’ve traveled extensively in Europe, Japan, and the Caribbean and it hasn’t let us down.
Very helpful

Love TripAdvisor App
by Warm Traveler on 2020/02/19 04:06
Love to use the TripAdvisor App as its easy to navigate, users can post picks. I do not book a vacation without first using TripAdvisor for reviews.
Honestly a great app
by _Cam_25 on 2020/02/19 03:55
I love just looking up random places and planning pretend vacations. This app offers so many attractions to so many places, you can spend hours and hours on here. They really do a good job of finding the lowest prices for hotels too.
Trip Advisor is super helpful
by ThatsmyEm on 2020/02/19 03:05
I always go to trip advisor to check prices and rates and read reviews on different hotels and restaurants before I plan my trips. This app is very handy and user friendly. Love it!
User Friendly App

Stars have no standard value
by Reco21 on 2020/02/18 22:10
Stats are useless. One person gives an average rating and four stars another person gives terrible food good service with five stars. Please provide some guidelines as we are all “👀lemmings” and mathematically challenged on ratings ranging from one star to five stars. Someone please save us from ourselves.

They remove negative reviews
by Murse-inator on 2020/02/18 18:13
We stayed at a luxury hotel and had roaches and bedbugs. The resort complained about our review and it was removed at their request. We had photos and a receipt from the exterminator that even wrote it was local problem. Complaining to Trip Advisor was useless. We no longer use the app or trust the reviews.
Good app issues with photo uploading
by Metacad on 2020/02/18 17:17
I like the app, but loading photos is not easy
Great App for Everything!

No car reservations???
by Red wine mama on 2020/02/18 04:13
Hate the upgrade. I just need to make a car reservation like I did less than a month ago. Now the app won’t let me. Do not like.
Essential for travelers
by cheapblackdad on 2020/02/18 03:56
This is the app for all of us who always have to have a trip or two waiting for us on the horizon. TripAdvisor is where we start much our travel planning. From the Cayman Islands, Orlando and Disney World, both coasts of Mexico, various spots in Florida, Kauai, Maui, and various cities throughout the US, tripadvisor has been a trusted source of Information for countless trips over the years. The forums are a great place to get objective advice and feedback from other travelers’ experiences, and the reviews are essential for the savvy traveler.
Great for information and decision making
by Tangled web_unwoven on 2020/02/18 03:50
Bar none, my go to for starting my research on where I might spend my time and money. Great for places to stay, eat and especially for things to do. But as a frequent reviewer I’d like it to be easier to enter reviews especially when I need to edit typos or update a review with new or better information.
Came here for Dave and Tim 2020 - and ready for 2021
by Kat1204- on 2020/02/18 02:18
We booked here for the Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds three day concert and would come back for the resort alone - though we are actually coming back for Dave and Tim 😁. The resort is fabulous - we stayed in the Sunrise section. The rooms are huge, and oh so comfortable. I spent three hours in our (huge) ocean view balcony terrace today and am looking forward to lounging in our ocean view double size jacuzzi. Really. You cannot beat the food - delicious, abundant, varied. The service has been exceptional. Personal shout outs to: Carlos, a server at Asadero restaurant - someone needs to make him a manager ASAP. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, service-oriented, helpful, cannot say enough. My background is in hotels and he definitely puts time into learning everything about the company he works for so he can answer every question I had, as well as showing a deep interest in his own restaurant, menu items, flavor profiles, you name it. A first class server and all around good person. Ask to be seated in his section - you won’t be disappointed! Carmen, message therapist at Awe Spa - I had a wonderful 80 minute aromatherapy massage with her. She is lovely, strong (found all my back knots and worked them out), professional and kind. I truly recommend her!
Productiva

by Haptowns on 2020/02/18 01:39
Very useful app for planning travel. Couldn’t do without it for hotels and restaurants. However, the mobile app is not user friendly for leaving reviews or adding new restaurants or places that aren’t listed
Stop making this app worse!
by Ebby4210 on 2020/02/18 01:22
It used to be so easy to find the best restaurant near me. Now this app is a convoluted mess. And now I can’t even rate the app without creating a stupid nickname. I’m done with this app.
Ripped off on my first purchase.
by d-trick3000 on 2020/02/18 01:02
Ripped off and can’t even contact Tripadvisor support because they won’t allow it on this iOS app or Safari. I was able to use Chrome but then the site locked up at setting the password.
Clumsy navigation
by Sort of helpful on 2020/02/18 00:40
I appreciate lodging and dining reviews, but I don’t like app preference settings, specifically lack thereof, for the iPhone . While I normally use U.S. dollars, I searched for prices in Euros while in Germany last fall, and app preferences aren’t holding on phone, although I’ve had better results on my pc.
My Source
by JoeAnthony3 on 2020/02/18 00:17
I have been writing reviews for a little bit and try to keep up as we visit new cities and places. I try more so for gluten free options as I am celiac, which I know is very difficult to eat out and roll the dice every time I do, but if I want to live life outside of my kitchen I have to trust places. I of course do my homework and with the help of this site I find it a little more trusting in the post I read from others.

Much Less Like Yelp Than I Would Prefer
by Dok Hollywood on 2020/02/16 16:27
As is in the title, the app works a lot less like Yelp. I like Yelp. I *need* Yelp. However, this comes as close as I can find to a Yelp for travelers; so, as much as I would wish it otherwise, it will have to do.
Love it for business and personal trips!
by NuclearWynter on 2019/02/24 19:29
I travel quite a bit for business and even more for pleasure and this app is perfect for both. On business trips, I can put in the city I’m visiting and when I’m going and it gives me restaurants options and the most popular things to do. I can read reviews from other helpful travelers that give me thing to looks out for and best times to go places. When I travel for pleasure, I start with Trip Advisor. I get a destination in mind and save hotels/vacation homes, activities and transportation info to the trip and have it all planned out before I book. I also use the app for planning with others. I planned a girls trip to Jamaica with my friends and was able to send them the details to review before we booked. I was able to book a lake house in NC for a Thanksgiving dinner my family is planning this year. I think the next step for the app is allowing splitting of payments for different things or allowing multiple payers. Also being able to joint plan a trip would be nice. Overall though I have no complaints about the app and love using it. I love leaving reviews for places I’ve been an helping other fellow travelers.
This is the best place to find ratings and details about hotels, restaurants, etc.
by Bob WW on 2019/11/01 15:59
I evaluate most of the hotels, restaurants, and local sights on TripAdvisor. I only rarely have to give bad ratings since I have checked in advance on TripAdvisor. By reading many reviews you can quickly get a good idea of each rated place. Note that some reviewers are always negative - either they are never satisfied or they are so grumpy that they have brought out the worst in everyone they meet. When hundreds of visitors have given a place “excellent” or “very good” ratings, usually the few bad ratings are due to such trolls. I usually do read several negative ratings - bad days do occur and there are flaws in everything and it can help you to notice those flaws - but if most people liked it, I will probably like it too. I have used “Yelp” at times for restaurant reviews (sometimes searching sends me to Yelp). It is ok, but I have not usually found it more convenient. I am less familiar with it - and I have never posted a rating there. If I have to sign in each time, this is the last time you will hear from me.
It’s a very useful app but has some flaws
by Spunky Traveller on 2019/07/27 05:01
I can’t leave home without it as it helps bring the world to me. Reviews and recommendations are typically spot on. However, it can be a bit clumsy when it comes to searching. I put in day trips/tours in Dar es Salaam and I keep getting safari results for 3-15 days. Not sure what part of “day” the app does not understand. Also, I booked a trip that has not existed for about a year and was none refundable. When I tried to cancel on the app, it warned me that I would lose 100% of the cost. I reached out to the tour operator via WhatsApp and fortunately, they were gracious enough to inform me that they no longer do that tour and will fully refund. TripAdvisor needs to stay on top of operational tours. Finally, whenever I book a tour through TripAdvisor, things generally go smoothly except for when they don’t. The reply button to the tour operator contained within the confirmation email seldom works. All in all, I enjoy using this app as my go to travel companion. I don’t even need to research ahead of time (I know, lazy right? ;) and the idea that I can travel on the fly and have TripAdvisor app do all the legwork is ever so appealing. It would have been 5 star but for all the issues listed above!
Can not report response after bad review
by Cj of MDR on 2019/11/27 19:11
My issue with Trip Advisor is they block you from providing any updates until 90 days later after posting negative review. My post of review from Sheraton Hotel Marina in San Diego November 2019 received a response from Sheraton. They posted they want to talk further to me about issues that took place at time of visit. I have responded twice to their email that they provided in their response post. I have had no response at all from Sheraton. If they really wanted to speak to me they should have provided a valid phone number and contact person in their response. Posting an email address but never acknowledging my emails back per their posted request, just makes it looks like they( Sheraton) made an effort. Trip Advisors blocks me from reporting this to travelers until after 90 days. Thus, current travelers seeking real time information will not be given up to date information from travelers that have experienced recent issues that could impact current travelers. So reading allowed posting without allowing immediate updates makes Sheratons attempt to work out issues meaningless. Trip Advisors followers will not know that Sheraton has failed to actually resolve issue and fail to acknowledge my 2 emails back to their request. I consider this deliberately misleading travelers.
Always use TripAdvisor! Helps so much in travel advice .
by Sue Ban on 2019/07/30 04:58
We try and take a yearly vacation and visit new place in our travels. As some, we save to have the best time, see as much as we can for great value. It’s always so helpful reading others experiences and thoughts. our trip to Germany last year we found amazing tours to several castles in a luxury coach. Trust me I was skeptical about spending a little extra $, but ready several different takes on it we were sold. Thank goodness we did, the other bus was packed as we had only30 people. It was amazing! We also used the advice of a smart travel in St. Lucia. A private van took us all over the island that the cost of a busy tour bus would of. Plus we we’re head of all the buses, so we beat the crowds. We even use TripAdvisor for restaurants when we head to different cities through the year. Yes, people have different likes but reading other reviews helps us find some awesome handed treasures. I could go on and on, but you just need use it, it’s a great way to help with some many things. Make your life easy be advised😎
Love this app but use improvements
by Teddy bear babe on 2018/08/18 17:29
I use this app almost every time we go to a new city to find what food is good and where to eat. That being said there are some improvements I would like to see. 1. For vegetarians and vegans the app can be a little difficult to navigate. One change I would like to see is in phrasing and searching filters. There is a difference between vegetarian/ vegan restaraunts and a restaurant having vegan/vegetarian options. The app currently does not show the difference which can be vexing. 2. Another change I would like to see is in the search. Often times i go on here to find food between point a and point b but currently there is not a way to search along that route or slightly off from it. Yes you can go through each address and see but for tourists this can be difficult and additional time to your task. It’s a good time to mention that even if these changes don’t occur I will keep using the app but it would be nice to see a change to help support those of us with different diets. And not just non-meat eaters but, gluten free eaters, paleo people or even those that have a lot of allergies to food such as nuts, milk, eggs and more.
I found many people to be rude for no reason
by TiNyJALEPENO on 2019/03/08 15:56
I suggest looking elsewhere and honestly reddit is much more helpful. I posted a couple things, but they were simple questions about atms. People then told me I should research and soon I would be asking about shootings where I am staying? I don’t get how I can be so stupid for simply asking about the atms and which ones to use because people’s cards were being read and used in Indonesia. I then went on to read multiple reviews and I was really taken back by how many unnecessarily rude people are on there. Some people on there do ask naive questions, but the point of the app is to help people. Anytime I told someone they were being rude my comment was deleted by the staff. I’m not sure why because I never cursed I just told the people they were being unnecessarily rude and pretentious. But maybe pretentious was taken as not following their guidelines? Because technically I called them a name? Not sure. Anyways besides people being not very helpful I also found reviews to be lacking. There are so many spots I went to in Puerto Escondido that were amazing and not mentioned. So I would suggest speaking to locals wherever you go. Trip advisor may be helpful to some, but honestly I think reddit is much better. I thought Yelp was bad, but this app and it’s staff are in no way helpful.
Great App But Could Use Improvements
by Island Sparkles on 2018/04/29 12:03
I use TripAdvisor quite often to review my experiences at hotels, restaurants and attraction areas as well as read the reviews of others when deciding on areas and places to visit. It would be great if TripAdvisor would add cruise lines to their portfolio of things that can be reviewed as I am getting ready to take a cruise and would love to share my experience when I return. I have had some difficulties when trying to write reviews for locations or places that are not yet listed in the app. This has been very frustrating as you do not realize that your review will not get published until after you go through all that effort to write the review and include pictures etc. Additionally, I would like to see some incentives or benefits for members that take the time to write all of these reviews to inform the general public of their experiences. I have written 105 reviews, and I have not yet received any type of incentives i.e. discounts to restaurants, hotels, attractions etc. Granted, I do not write these reviews for any type of reward. I write them because it benefits me when I read others reviews when trying to decide on things to do and places to go; however, I just think it would be nice for TripAdvisor to give some sort of gesture to show that they appreciate what we as reviewers do for them. Overall, I do enjoy using this app and will continue to use the app as needed because the benefits outweigh their need for improvements.
Love the app, however...

I have used the Trip Advisor app for years and found it to be very helpful. However, in this era of stored data abuses, I find it annoying that I can not erase my recent search history. Some will argue why this is an issue so I will share an issue that a co-worker had with the Trip Advisor app. My co-worker was planning on surprising his wife with a romantic mid-week trip at an oceanfront resort 40 miles from his home. He used Trip Advisor to find the best accommodations available. He has the Trip Advisor app on both his iPhone and iPad. After determining that this type of trip wasn’t in his budget, he decided to wait and save a little bit of money each week. Well, sometime later, his wife was using the iPad and Trip Advisor to research a restaurant in the area for a family dinner. While she was in the app, she noticed his history. She was also noticing that he was taking money from their savings account (money he was saving for their romantic weekend.) Anyhow, my co-workers wife’s man hating sister had her convinced that he was having an affair. No need to keep going on this story as I am sure you all get it. Once Trip Advisor allows search history to be deleted, I will amend my 2 star rating.
This is “legal” scam now!?
by Getinktattoo on 2019/06/29 17:09
I just changed phone and was trying to open TripAdvisor in my new one and just realize this craziness.... be aware... it doesn’t sound correct or even legal (but I guess that if the ask persuasion and we, the users, granted, then is on us.... one of the options to signing into TripAdvisor is using my google email/account... TripAdvisor request me roc ALLOW them to be able “to see and download all my google accounts emails addresses”!!!!! What is that!!! How is that to use an app about things to do or where to eat in any given area I need to pay that service with my privacy and the Privacy of the people that emails me!!!!!? Be aware! We all are used to the “scroll down and agree” and select box and agree to be able to use most accounts and apps now day... must of the times are about fair use of apps and legal reasons..some other times is about allowing the apps to use our location and maybe cameras and being able to storage photos in our devices.... so we go ahead and click allow or agree just because we are so used to trust as no other way to get around or as part of the process... but what TripAdvisor is doing asking permission to see and download our private info... doesn’t sound right!! At all!!!
Great app but tired of some of the questions
by Hearing in LA! on 2019/03/06 22:45
I like the app and have used it for both evaluating and reviewing restaurants, hotels, and things to do all over the world. It is fairly easy to use but have found 1 issue that was only cleared up after I sent a message to Trip Advisor. When adding a new location of any type, a website or social media listing is shown being “optional.” I have found that if the new location does not have a website or not listed on social media, TA will reject the listing without explanation. This was very frustrating after going through all the detail of listing 2 new restaurants and having them rejected without explanation. There should be a note requiring website or social media address before going through details of a new listing. A point that not only perturbs but concerns me greatly is I am totally offended by constantly being asked if a restaurant offers halal food. It is very discriminatory to single this out. I do not nor will I ever eat this food so stop asking me this offense question!!!!
Really helps RVers, more & more as people utilize
by frequent TA user on 2018/02/19 02:30
In travel, this app is priceless! Particularly traveling to a new destination, helps tremendously with restaurant info. and directions! Ditto for events, attractions. Much better than Around Me, which we hardly use anymore. Even at home, we use it when the inevitable question “where should we go eat?” arises. Especially when wanting something other than our usual go-tos. Breakfast lunch or dinner, or even Happy Hr. it sure helps. Can really tell a difference in the App since we retired 3 years ago and began more extended RV trips - more RV parks and public campgrounds being listed and reviewed, all the time. Pictures help soo much as well as specific site info., amenities, when trying to find a place to camp. And Especially when looking for a place to eat, sightsee or shop for fresh seafood/meats in a new place, we find TA invaluable. The more people use and review, the better it gets. And the app updates have made it better. Keep up the good work, TA!
TripAdvisor is Fabulous
by jelainec on 2020/01/01 04:56
I had never heard of TripAdvisor until 2 years ago when my brother and his wife came to Cleveland. When I didn’t know how to get to Slyman’s (for the best corned beef and pastrami), my brother looked it up on TripAdvisor. Then when we were hungry for dessert (specifically custard), he pulls out his phone and looks up nearby custard/ice cream sellers and discovered Weber’s (the best vintage custard and ice cream!!) and Mitchell’s(fabulous gourmet milkshakes as well as marvelous ice cream)which we ended up indulging in on 2 different days! I was able to learn more about Northeast Ohio in the short time my brother was in town simply because he had a TripAdvisor app as his ‘go to’ for anything he wanted to see or do in the area! As soon as he went back to Texas, I got the TripAdvisor app for myself and have been thoroughly enjoying it and the places I have been able to visit and recommend as a result of his complete trust in its reliability and complete access to all the travel information he needs!!
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
Love The App Except . . .
by rekampam on 2019/03/04 16:06
One of the best Travel Apps available, with access to helpful reviews to help make better destination decisions. And because reasonable reviews help us make travel decisions, we also like to post solid reviews that might assist others. The one real difficulty with the Trip Advisor App is posting photos to reviews, even one’s own reviews. It seems that even when following Trip Advisor’s own HOW-TO directions, it is difficult to successfully add photos. Either the app wants access to all (thousands) of the photos on our devices, or using the “Profile/Intro/Upload The Photo/Add a Location Tag” method allows the app to see only the few photos in the “Camera Roll” and “My Photo Stream” folders, but will not allow access any of the specific “Albums” on our phone or tablet where individual trip photos are stored. If it wasn’t for the photo posting obstacle, the app would get 5 stars. It would be great if a simpler and more straightforward method was available for adding photos. Thanks very much.
Unfortunately, not the best app
by jimmm_nyc on 2019/02/19 04:12
The addresses and maps are often incorrect on TripAdvisor. Many times I’ve made location edits with TripAdvisor and a few times TripAdvisor has accepted & changed the map locations to the correct spot on the map. However, most often TripAdvisor does not edit the map information and the location continues to be completely incorrect. Therefore, I would not depend on TripAdvisor for the correct address or map location. Instagram will do this for you though, with lots of fantastic and beautiful photos on Instagram. There’s plenty of different apps and online resources for you to double check locations of hotel, restaurant, tours, etc because TripAdvisor is not trustworthy on giving the correct location. It’s almost like going to the doctor and getting a second opinion. Always double check the facts! TripAdvisor, I guess, is in its infancy stages and hopefully it will get better. Meanwhile, Instagram exceeds all the other apps for a lot of useful “sharing” information to help you make your decision of where to stay & eat.... & places to visit.
Golden Parnassus! Adults Paradise in Cancun
by cousin Reids dad on 2019/07/03 12:30
Just returned from a week with my two young adult children. It’s our third time there. Many of the guests are return visitors to the resort. I’ve met many guests that have been there ten times or more. The staff are second to none! The hardest working and most personable people in the industry. The food is good and plentiful and the drinks delicious and they keep them coming, One reason that many people return is because of the great service and personality of a bartender named Fonsi. Fonsi is a very hard working and genuine man. He can hold an interesting conversation with anyone. He’s smart , funny and just a magician at making drinks. He remembers your drink and never lets you run dry. If it’s advice that you need as far as where to go and what to do in Cancun, he’s ur guy. We really missed the body shots this year though, they were fun but for some reason not allowed anymore ??? Check it out! You will want to take half of the staff home with you!
Viking Cruise Venice to Athens
by kamabesu on 2019/04/13 15:57
What a remarkable 10 days. It was our first Viking Cruise and it was wonderful. The team that puts together the off ship tours is truly 5 star. The advertising on PBS is spot on. You really do have magical moments with the people of the country you are visiting. It is special and intimate. We had an operatic performance in a villa in Venice. The owner welcomed us to his family home of 700 years and served Prosecco from his vineyards. The performance of famous arias and duets was worthy of The Met. Bravo Don’t miss a day of touring they were all equally spectacular. Food off the ship is much better than on. The Italian Resturant was good. The Chefs table,poor. How many ways can you steam cod? How many courses can you embellish with “espoma “? I guess the answer is unlimited. Our Jr Suite was very spacious and the perk we especially used was free laundry and dry cleaning. The free mini bar was so so as it had lower quality liquor offerings. The crew was fabulous. Very kind and attentive. We look forward to our next Viking Cruise as the tours run seemlessly and are high quality.
The ratings they give to those who review is a scam!
by Dawn3547 on 2018/10/26 23:44
I have submitted nearly 100 reviews over the years which I have enjoyed doing but what bothers me is the “rewards” and badges given to those who review and the badgering they do to lure you into making more reviews to be “the top reviewer in your area”. Or, “you are 2 reviews away from receiving Photographer status”, etc!!!!! I write reviews in order to share my excitement or dissatisfaction with a place of service. The place has to be pretty bad for me to complain- the businesses we review can make or break someone’s business.... that’s a serious responsibility. I take re Jewish g seriously. My reason for 2 stars for Trip Advisor is the giving of rewards for which nothing is actually given. It’s enough reward for me to be able to help a fellow traveler but be straight with your reviewers. If you award “trophies” at least back them up with a small discount on a hotel, or a meal, etc! I am a member of many rewards clubs for gasoline, restaurants, or shopping venues. These are great perks and command my loyalty. Wouldn’t that be nice if Trip Advisor extended this appreciation to its reviewers? Just saying........😁
Dependably yummy!
by iachimo1 on 2019/01/15 22:37
December 2018: Took 2 out-of-town girlfriends. Very tasty lemony chicken breast with capers, rice, grilled asparagus (nightly special) and HGF burger with fries. Creme brûlée delicious. Not too noisy. Late October 2018: Took 7 out-of-town childhood girlfriends. Ultimately it turned out fine BUT a near fiasco at first: our reservation was lost (even though we’d called twice); we ended up after a 30 minute wait asking to seat us anywhere; we ended up as a table of 4 up front and a table of 3 in the very back. Fortunately, everyone liked what they’d ordered: lasagna, a shrimp and pasta dish, chicken, bison burger. Sorry can’t recall more specifically, but basically from the menu. The waitress gave each table a dessert gratis and we loved the creme brûlée! Early October 2018: my companion and I loved our late dinner at the bar! Bison burger for me was tasty, not greasy, nicely topped with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Companion’s chicken sandwich was goodly sized, nicely fried and well seasoned. He really liked the fries too. Wonderful bartender- can’t recall his name, darn it! Lucky to have this in lil ole Weaverville.
Wonderful accommodations and great staff!
by Groovy mini on 2018/04/19 19:23
We stayed at Melia Cozumel over three weeks last month from February 24th through March 12th, 2018. Everything was fantastic, want to give particular high marks to the following employees: Hilario, the beach waiter who was always eager to bring what we wanted- we dont usually drink much but probably did on the days he worked:) Alicia our maid who remembered that we need extra waters for medication etc.. Alberto the waiter in the buffet area who is so friendly and taught us Mayan words , like “show-pee” that means finished, all done. Hassell went over and above at the concierge and the other girl, Tania, was very helpful to assist my calling the airline to extend our trip and help with Spanish translating. Sandra from the office did a good job setting it all up for us. Bryan was very helpful with my printing a few important documents, so patient and calm. Martin, the younger waiter at breakfast was very polite and refilled the coffees quickly. Tania helpful at concierge. On our last night, Jose at at dinner buffet with good with the wine refills. Antonio at breakfast always came with more coffee and water. Those are the standouts I took notes about, although I have to say not one of the staff were ever rude, the activities team was funny and friendly and even though we didnt participate in anything but maybe Bingo once they made us feel welcome if we wanted to. Another enjoyable stay and we look forward to next time! Thank you!
Lothian motorcoach trip from Edinburgh
by slamminpam on 2019/09/28 19:57
My friend and I took a day tour with Lothian motorcoaches out of Edinburgh on 27Sept2019. Our driver was Ian and guide was Scott. Being the handsome lad he is, Scott really should have been in a kilt! Our day trip was to Loch Lomond, The Trossachs and Doune Castle. Now, being the Outlander fan that I am, when I found out this Castle was used as Castle Leoch in the Outlander,I was definitely all in. Thus trip did not disappoint. Scott really should be a stand up comedian. The “history lesson” was delivered in such a way that it was never boring! He had us all in stitches!! I would definitely recommend this trip and make sure to get Scott, if possible. Now, the “icing on the cake”for me was when Scott chased me four blocks after I got off the bus to return my purse that I had left on the seat!! Lord... what a life saver this man was! I will say, the ONLY thing that could have made this trip better, was for Scott to be in a kilt!! I mean, it IS Scotland after all. Pamela D. Florida. USA
A day for me in the air on China Eastern Airlines
by gene and ilana go to Asia on 2018/01/28 07:38
Ilana and I were so excited about our first trip to Asia. Thailand and Cambodia were a dream we’ve had for what seems to be forever. But truthfully I was dreading the long flight. The longest part was from JFK to Bangkok and I imagined us getting there and losing another day sleeping off the jet lag. So we booked our travel in business class for the first time. It was a delight. The service was excellent. From the moment we checked in. Their lounge at the airport was very comfortable. The food on the plane was beautifully prepared and served and the lay flat beds were amazing. We slept 11 of the 14+hours to Shanghai and after a short layover we were on our way again for the final part of our trip. We arrived fresh and ready to tour an exciting city. And it was a pretty good deal cost wise as well compared to the price we got for business class on other airlines. Over all, a great start to our 2 weeks in Asia.
Historic Scotland Explorer Pass
by dmnurse2016 on 2019/06/12 21:26
We were gently pressured to buy the 5 day Historic Scotland Explorer Pass on our visit to Stirling Castle. The ticket concession seller described how we would be saving money and “avoiding the long lines” to buy tickets to enter Edinburgh Castle or any of the 77 Historic Scotland places. We spent 3+ hours enjoying Stirling Castle and had a decent lunch there. 2 days later we went to Edinburgh and entered the Edinburgh Castle. It was cold, windy and very uncomfortable after 1 hour doing the guided tour and the castle guide suggested a pub for lunch instead of eating at the castle cafeteria. We went to the one he suggested, warmed up and returned to see the rest of the castle. When we attempted to re-enter the castle, we were told that our “pass” entitled us to ONE visit to any of the sites. We explained the NO ONE had described this limit on the pass. She then went to page 3 of the pass and showed us the fine print. We were then told even though NO ONE had warned of this limitation on the pass, that if we wanted to go into the castle after our lunch break, we “could buy another ticket”. We decided not to be ugly Americans and left after letting them know we thought it was quite unfair.
Could be Better
by DaddyOBest on 2019/07/09 12:43
Several flaws that should be fixed for smartphones and some for pcs. Major flaw is adding quick bites to eating establishments. There are no rules on this and restaurants are changed to quick-bites because of someone’s answer etc. By doing this, they are no longer listed as restaurants. Major problem is if you are looking for a great place to eat, TA searches restaurants by default!!! Guess what? The favorite eating place you are looking for doesn’t show up because it is quick-bites. The only way around this is going through several filtering screens and click restaurants and quik-bites when doing a search. I didn’t find this for 6 months and always missed great restaurants. These restaurants missed had order at the counter, bring out your food and refill drinks sometimes but were called qb. I even ran across places that took your order at the table but were labeled qb. TA please fix this and have an easy to find suggestions area to alert you to these problems and many more with feedback given to reporters.
Bill’s Front Porch
by blueeyeddarlin on 2018/12/01 00:39
Hidden Gem in Wilmington especially when you get to see and hear Folkstone Stringband! Lucky enough to be at Bill’s Front Porch when they had live music with a phenomenal Bluegrass Band named Folkstone Stringband! Beers are housemade and the new “Christmas Pants” is smooth and not too sharp. With the romaine lettuce scare, salads are a little slack but still delicious 🍁 quesadilla s are delicious especially the brisket. Their cheese dip is house made but is a little floury not cheesy enough . The craft brews are great with a variety of taste experiences. From the sharp citrus based IPA’s to the smooth new Christmas brew called “Christmas Pants”. By far the smoothest of all the craft brews Bill’s makes. Two members of the waitstaff are the best I’ve encountered. Lindsey and Sandy are some of the best waitstaff I have had. Attentive and on top of everything. Ask for them, you won’t be sorry. They are great!!! Overall Bills is a great eating and drinking establishment, Good food and beverage, but add the great music of Folkstone Stringband and you have a winning combination!
Plastic Surgery
by cherrydelo on 2018/09/15 13:27
Dr Enrique Alejandro is so so good. I did a lot of research on surgeons in Guadalajara, or Dr Alejandro does most of his work, and compared his technique, his skills, and his training with the best surgeons in New York. My sister-in-law had had work done by Dr. uses the same technique and she looks amazing. I did my research and Dr Alejandro uses the latest under the muscle technique not used by many because they have not had the training. He takes his time and treated me as an individual piece of art, sculpting my face in a way that did not change the way I look but a younger version of myself. I don’t look like “ i’ve had work done”. I’m just younger looking. The Elaen Center in Nuevo Vallarta Connect to the San Javier hospital is clean, the staff professional and caring. Not only that but he would contact me to check up on me, to have me come in for regular checks up without extra charge. He’s young, professional and takes immense pride in his work.
Lost confidence
by marinadoug on 2019/01/28 14:53
My wife and I always check out the reviews for hotels and restaurants and have had great results. The reviews reflect accurately what our experiences have been. We have to weed out some of the negative reviews, some people just have to vent when the world just doesn’t go their way. But now TA is rating with their “Best Value”. My wife and I travel to many of the same cities for work and have learned where to stay and not to stay. Their Best Value is completely false and we must say a completely fake rating for us the consumer. We can’t begin to understand any logic in these ratings. There is no cost association and for sure there is no quality association. We are guessing that TA has sold out to who will pay the most. In the end we have lost confidence in anything they say now and feel we must check other sites to be sure of all our future choices for hotels and restaurants. Such a shame, it was such a good site, you can still switch to consumer ratings....but have they sold out to the highest bidder there, if they are ok making a fake Best Value are they ok with making or modifying reviews to the highest bidder and they become fake.

A great resource when traveling
by KashmirX on 2019/04/04 01:39
I come to rely on this app to find great restaurants in areas I never been before. My coworkers brag about the places I discover from this app. I use it when picking out hotels as well. The reviews help prevent me from staying in some dives. Just because it is $30 cheaper a night than the other hotels doesn’t mean it is a deal. I have made the mistake of saving $5 on a hotel and regretting to this day. Read the reviews and look for patterns in the reviews, do your due diligence on the reviewers also. If a reviewer gave a place a bad grade does that person ever give anyone a good review or is it even their first review. Find out why a business, restaurant or hotel got received a good review or bad review. Then decide if you want to visit that business. This app will save you time and money if you use it and you can find some rare hidden treasures while traveling or right in your hometown.
I use it daily to locate the best dining hotels, etc
by Fishin' Dan on 2019/06/22 19:45
An Example: my wife & I were driving home from Branson last week, decided to stop for lunch in Harris, Ark., opened trip advisor and searched for “Nearby” restaurants. We found Jessi’s and it was a hidden gem, would have never believed that a restaurant this good would be there. We then continued on and found an extremely good value hotel (Econo lodge) on the outskirts of Little Rock. We could tell from the Traveler reviews that this was a great place to stay the night, and it turned out to be true, absolutely. we then searched for for nearby restaurants, using “Cajun & Creole” dining offerings in the search filter. “Copeland’s came up , and it was wonderful. These examples are from just one day of several hundred days of traveling in the last three years. Trip adviser has been an essential part of our travels, and we’d be “travel dysfunctional” if we didn’t have it in the future.
3 in 1 Tulum, Snorkeling, cenote/cave expedition in Cancun
by Amy Crossfit on 2019/04/06 21:12
What an amazing experience! Our guides Pepe and Juan picked my so and I up at our resort on time and they were very attentive to the group. They had snacks and water available for us as it was going to be 8 hours before we got to eat lunch. They were very knowledgeable with the history of the Talum Ruins and they made us laugh during this tour. They knew all of our names and took time to take pictures for us too. They were experienced snorkeler and made sure we were all safe. Pepe and Juan made the tour of the cenote and caves so amazing! The lunch was at the cenote site and was fairly good but it was the company of the people in the group that made the lunch so enjoyable. By the end of the day the group became a mini family and we bonded with each other and to our guides. It truly was sad to leave them all and I will remember each member of our group forever!!! Thank you Pepe and Juan!!!
Very useful for travel
by JudyB429 on 2019/11/10 01:02
I like access to menus when looking for restaurants and if the place requires me to sign in to Facebook, I will NOT. Some people don’t even use it and there are many warnings not to sign in to FB except to use it. Restaurants should be advised they may be losing business because of this. Having the menu link on the Trip Advisor is best, but a link to the website is ok. Many domains are for sale which makes one question if they are still in business. If a place does go out of business, they should let TA know. The more details given for a hotel, restaurant or attraction, the better, but information should be up to date. Hours open, price and directions are helpful. I appreciate when a hotel listing shows restaurants nearby. Trip Advisor should be aware if they stop advertising or boycott a place or TV program, they run the risk of losing customers—maybe more than they gain. Stick to travel and stay out of politics.
Prom pics at the Benson
by rebelmom999 on 2018/04/08 05:21
We have stayed at the Benson several times when downtown for events. This weekend was prom and we had plans to take pics at the Japanese Gardens. Unfortunately Oregon had other ideas. In a panic to come up with a dry option for pics I remembered the lovely lobby of the Benson. The valet was sweet and agreed to keep the Jeep up front so the kids didn’t have to park and walk through the rain to get to the lobby. The staff watched for 20 minutes while we captured their wonderful prom in photos before a manager stomped up to inform us that if we weren’t paying for an event we weren’t allowed to take pics in their lobby in order to preserve the “reputation of the Benson”. I thanked him and explained the rain caused us to scramble for an appropriate indoor venue for prom pics. I know the floor staff knew policy and yet allowed the kids this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Benson Hotel. The pics were gorgeous and the kids were thrilled.
Everything I Want To Know Beforehand!
by Artess1 on 2019/08/12 22:10
Pick a topic: restaurants, hotels, local color and the opportunity to make RSVPs; I find the Trip Advisor App covers almost everything I want to know about and prepare for before I depart. 1. I particularly find mention of “actual menu items” (whether or not available the next time)helpful in understanding what well traveled members have found the restaurants actually prepare & serve well. 2. Hotel Information from travelers, especially regarding it’s location to local landmarks in international cities, is very helpful. 3. Local Color information is invaluable when trying to decide what to pack for the day trip: water bottle, bug juice, etc. and understanding areas mobility & necessary time to allow. 4. Can’t mention enough how helpful & reliable the opportunity for various excursion & meal RSVPs thru the Trip Advisor App has been on trips to Paris, Giverny, London, Rome & Positano, etc.
One Of My Top Five Apps!
by Mike22233 on 2017/10/31 19:40
I have used TripAdvisor for nearly ten years. I never travel or try a new restaurant without searching the site and reading the reviews. Recently, I have booked hotels and dinner reservations more frequently using the site. I have read some of the other reviews. I disagree with most of the criticism. I understand that this is a free site and that there is a company behind it that has commercial needs. However, if you have spent enough time using the site and the app, you will recognize the advertising. It's easily maneuvered to find the strictly objective advice. For example, I would prefer that the site did not default to "Best Value" ranking when searching hotels, as it is not fully reflective of hotel rankings by users. However, provided that you remember to change the default setting on each search to "Traveler Ranked", you can find the objective data.
Dorothy Martin, Home 2 Suite, Hilton
by pecfulbeing on 2019/10/20 18:40
Recently, I had the daunting task of driving by myself, from Florida to New England. As a disabled woman with acute spinal issues, a cat, and a lot of luggage, I proceeded north to New England. It was a bit harrowing. However, I had the good fortune of meeting Dorothy Martin who was working behind the front desk of Home2Suite in Queensbury, NY. If everyone at any hotel had the attitude and mindset of Dorothy Martin there would not be a hotel on the planet that would be unable to bump its rating off the chart. Short of standing on her ear, I don’t there is a thing Dorothy would not do to assist her guest. Stand up and take notice please. She has an unending work ethic, she is kind and knowledgeable. Dorothy would ask for help if needed (thought I doubt she would need help) another indicator of a wise employee. Please stand up and take note of this smart, talented, gregarious, customer oriented woman working a beautiful Hilton hotel. Thank You, Linda Stultz
How the World Communicates
by EddieStarr on 2019/06/05 22:49
When you want to know about something you come to TripAdvisor it’s just what you do when you want to learn about experiences fine photography no price points maybe find some good professional tips on how to avoid long lines something really special about a venue and maybe learn something that you’ve never known before so when you go and visit you find something special and Magical Place , TripAdvisor lets you do all of that and much much more, it’s like a collective consciousness of knowledge a dynamic body of growth, each day adds new experiences and people talk about them here , this is where the road comes to communicate and this is where you should come to get information on your next trip and if you have the chance look me up I have a couple reviews and places for you to go it’s a wonderful World let TripAdvisor show you where to go 🙏🏻
While traveling, will NOT eat a meal without cking
by Calif Travelers on 2019/10/31 17:23
My wife and I are recently retired and for the past 5 years have traveled for anywhere between 2 months and 4 months at a time in Europe and SE Asia. When it comes time to find a restaurant for a good AND RELIABLE meal, we ALWAYS check Trip Advisor. The restaurant must meet our filters and have at least 2-3 recent (within 2 or 3 months) positive viewer reviews. When we have followed those personal rules we have yet to have either a bad or surprisingly expensive tourist trap meal. While recently in Italy a friend traveling with us saw a posted menu and before I cld ck Trip Advisor we were in the restaurant and seated. Our meal was tasteless AND OVERLY EXPENSIVE. We walked right into a typical tourist trap!!! Since it was only a lunch we didn’t make a big deal out of it but our friend learned a quick lesson, because afterwards he wld always ask me to find a place to eat !!
Wow - Pasta !!
by JohnZen99 on 2019/04/02 10:43
We ran into this place by accident.... then read about it. We liked the look of the place - very funky but intimate. It seemed to (by comments) have devolved into something slightly ‘touristy’ these days. So we were confused but liked the hand written menu. We read and heard from the greeter that it was important to get a reservation.....(“Don’t be late, you have an hour and a half to eat.”). With all that we waited outside for the place to open at 8 sharp. The prices seemed a tad high when we ordered. TO SUM: The paparredali (sp?) I had was the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. The bisteka I had was tasty. Both dishes were VOLUMINOUS. Very large portions. My wife had the house specialty pasta and lamb. We could have just ordered one pasta dish and a ‘secondi’ and been fine. The atmosphere was terrific, the hard working server and owner/host were friendly. In short - this was 4.5 stars and a nice nice place to discover.

I wrote a review and got auto corrected, didn’t catch it and now I cannot find the EDIT thing. Haven’t seen now if they send me an email to review and edit before it is actually published though. Also It would be nice if somehow the app interfaced with a map without having to go in and out of the app. Many times I am trying to find hotels, restaurants, attractions by locations and proximity and I get tired of having to go back and forth, would be nice to be able to ‘pin/ sticky’ note stuff within the TA app so I don’t have to figure it out all over again. I’ve started taking out my paper map and using sticky notes which works but would be nice to have something user friendly like that within TA app. I have used this app for many years and try to add a review each time I go someplace, and I really depend on this when I travel. Now I just tried to submit and it says my nickname is taken, it’s my nickname so what’s up?
TripAdvisor is both good start AND ending!
by "Juanito" on 2019/10/28 21:37
I have long used TripAdvisor as one of my starting points when planning, or even just thinking about travelling. The information is almost always timely, especially when there is current information from contributors. Unfortunately, as I am a “Digital Dinosaur”, it has been a challenge for me to upload specific/designated information and some long-labored-over documents have yet to be accepted/published. This is very frustrating to me, especially when my information is very current & relevant. Also, I dislike not always getting instantaneously published, unlike some other competing websites. Oftentimes, once I’ve completed my odyssey, I need clarification of particular details, which I can find at their site. I both use and contribute to TripAdvisor. I highly recommend it, and it certainly gets my “Wheel of Approval!” FULL DISCLOSURE: I also own a bit of stock in this fine company,
Randles Hotel Review
by JLK MD on 2019/09/14 18:02
My wife and I had a nice stay in Killarney at The Randles Hotel until the last night and morning. Our itinerary required us to be picked up by our driver at 0530 for the airport trip. We talked with a front desk person the afternoon prior to our early departure. She promised us (and made a notation in a book) that we could get coffee and something cold by the night porter at 0500 the next morning. With our luggage, we arrived at the dining room door at 0500 in search of coffee and something. We were not expecting hot food but they advertise 24 hour room service and we had the desk clerk’s promise. The night porter saw us from the room above and asked what we were doing. We explained our story. His response to our breakfast question was: “What, at 5 AM?”. I then returned to our room. My wife was later offered coffee alone. The porter apologized to me for the mix up but assured me it was not his fault. I told him it was not our fault. He was the hotel representative at that time and failed in his responsibility. I left with a bad impression after that interaction.
Playa Grande 2017 new year
by Ycnibrc on 2018/01/01 04:34
Well first impression is good. Facility is clean and the hosts and staff are nice. I choose building O for the nice view and short walk to the beach. Building P was all booked. The 1 bedroom is nice and spacious with kitchen 2 bathroom 2 balcony. Get the higher floor 3 or above for better view. We have our first dinner at calina restaurant and it was good. If u want some free credit for food and beverage then do the time share breakfast if u dont care then skip it. The pool is nice and heated i think its a salt water pool it tase like salt water. Beach is very nice however because of the drop off near shore they recommend no swimming but theres people still swim. The beach is very quiet not crowded like cancun mostly because of the current undertow so not too many people swimming. You can walk to the left of the beach and climb over a rock mount then u will be at lovers beach which u can swim and u can see the land end rock arch.
Bead Waiter Review
by THS Trainer on 2019/08/05 16:48
On a recent trip to the Grand Serenis Riviera Maya in Cancún, Mexico we had a very good experience with all the staff we came in contact with. To mention one particular Head Waiter we had whose name is Aurelio, he went several extra miles in providing us with outstanding personal service. Glasses were never empty and his assistance with placing our food orders was imcomparable. Bell Boy, Juan Carmona, was second to none in providing personal attention. From the first time he picked us up in his golf cart to the last, he could not have given us any better personal service. He would stop and offer us rides whenever he saw us walking around the resort. Made us feel extremely special. Also Guest Services Manager, Giles Gautier was very helpful, knowledgeable and personable in assisting us with questions and resort amenities. This was a great place to stay because of the helpful and friendly staff.
Still doesn’t get basics right
by TruliaReviewer on 2019/10/27 00:58
Am one of Trip Advisors Top Contributers with 100,000+ readership and have been watching Trip Advisor updates for 5+ years now but I’m disappointed with the progress of the App and website over the years. It’s annoying that they still don’t get basics right for ex. if I submit a new place I don’t get a notification/email. As another example they continue to track history without permission or providing a way to edit/delete history (violating basic privacy laws and ignoring multiple user complaints). Yet another example is limiting restaurant reviews to 100 characters in the app. Not changing app orientation based on phone direction is another limitation. Instead of getting the basics right they have focused on useless things like the ridiculous number and type of badges and most recently trying to replace helpful votes with followers (and with a recent update I started getting feeds from N number of random sources even though I follow nobody).
Three Rs at the Residence Inn, Myrtle Beach
by Margaret and Jim on 2019/04/13 15:06
During the week of March 25,2019, Margaret and I enjoyed a very pleasing stay at the new Residence Inn at Myrtle Beach. Fun recreation, tasty refreshments and timeless relaxation. Joe May, Savanah and Paula responded to our needs at the front desk, and Clarissa, Tasha and Teresa ensured that our suite was refreshed each day. Charles at the bar helped with liquid refreshments, and Queens, Donna, Patricia and others provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Dinner at the hotel was sumptuous. Sea Captain’s House and Damon’s served tasty lunches each day. Take you to Glenn for assisting with the television hookup. Although the hotel opened less than two weeks prior to our arrival, minor construction and installation tasks were underway, with no impact on our stay. Chris Funderburk , Sree Organization provided us with a snapshot of the remaking tasks, and offered advise on other Sree operates hotels. Beginning with Mr. May, thank you all for a fantastic, pleasurable vacation.
Hector’s in Mazatlan
by kueso on 2017/11/12 19:36
This Was not a fine dining experience as we expected. I would’ve felt more welcome at Burger King and been better taken care of. Our whole experience from ordering to checking out was less than 45 minutes. The waiter took our drink order and we only got one Cube of ice after requesting a full glass. After he brought Iceless tea, I ordered a glass of red wine and never received it. The prawn spaghetti was good as was the risotto. I had the lasagna and Stouffers makes better. We were served our food & received no further attention from any of the waiters despite asking for ice and salt and pepper. We asked several times for the check and when we finally received it, we paid part in pesos and put part on the credit card. We told him to put 605 pesos on the card and he came back and had charged us 620. We will never go back here again. There were people at every table when we arrived but by the time we left 45 minutes later the place was relatively empty. People did not seem to be enjoying their dining experience either.
Marietas Snorkel, Whale Watching, kayak and paddle board Boat #1
by lettergram on 2019/02/16 03:49
We went out in Boat #1 with Pablo. It was SO much fun! Booked this as an excursion with our cruise. The crew did a phenomenal job. They were professional and courteous, knowledgeable and ENTERTAINING. They filled the travel time with such entertaining dance and music routines. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll comedy show was AWESOME. The snorkeling, paddle boards and kayak was very well done and organized. We were able to see some interesting fish and we saw several whales and birds along the way. The lunch was very good as well as the drinks from the open bar. I was also impressed with the professional photographer on board that captured our day on film. No pressure to buy but he did such good work, we couldn’t resist buying the flash drive of our day. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat - it was the highlight of our cruise. Be sure to ask for BOAT #1 and Pablo’s crew!
