Should I be suspicious of the reviews here on tripadvisor for the VIP Hotel Playa Negra? The ratings are almost all 5 star, but when looking at the reviewers for those posts, their only review is for the hotel. The two reviewers that have multiple posts rate the hotel as poor or terrible. Also, it looks like the "traveler photos" are professionally done. Do hotels go to the trouble of creating fake reviewers just to get good reviews? I'd like to give the hotel the benefit of the doubt, but things seem very odd.
I searched the forum and have seen that the owner of the Banana Azul (which would be our first choice if they had rooms available) says the VIP is "in a pretty jungle setting" so that is somewhat reassuring.
