Novotel Goa Resort & Spa- dodgy reviews?

Anybody notices the suspicious number of first time 5 star reviews for the Novotel Goa Resort & Spa recently? I think we may have dodgy vote fixing being attempted.

There are 18 5 star reviews on a row now, all from first reviewers. Not all all odd.

Reviews can be bought Ned as we both know, both good and bad. There have been some stories in the press recently of Regis packages on offer to boost your establish or trash a rival.

Hopefully HE can spot this activity and do something about it.

You spoke my mind OP. I was there recently and left them a great review, deservingly so I must add. But I came back to read the management's response to my review and was surprised to see four pages worth of 5 star reviews in one week, all by new first time posters. Something's not right..

It's becoming a time when you have to take these reviews with a pinch of salt. Such a shame.

Now there's eight in a row for the Novotel Goa Shrem. Someone at Novotel being naughty?

Irony is, these are great properties on their own really. Don't need such dirty tactics..
