I have read thousands and written many reviews over the years and this has become an intricate part of our holiday research. I have shied away from booking one hotel in Datca which may have been perfect for our needs because it had too many glowing reports. I know that seems a little strange, perhaps I am cynical, but I find it odd that so many people have left one review and have never reviewed any other hotel, pension, restaurant, bar or attraction either before or since, all have one city visited. Most were reviewed in the winter months, one UK resident's first language was obviously not English as he had a strange turn of phrase despite his English name.
The whole point of a review site is that there are good and bad reviews, everyone has a different perspective, complaints of no lift/minibar/TV in a 2* hotel make me smile but it is from these travellers that we garner our information and make our decisions.
