True travelers reviews


You ask for true traveler reviews. I wrote 2 reviews on my recent stay at Sea Watch and neither has been posted. Yes, there were little antidotes about the trip but the reviews of the hotel were true to form. What gives?

I sent one in last month but because I am a timeshare owner at the resort I stay at, it was rejected.

I have writen three + reviews so far and one was lots less flattering about the condo where we stayed in Gatlinburg TN. The nice reviews were posted right away and the less flattering one took up to 3 weeks to post.The pictures I sent in with my post took even longer to get on the review..Hope this helps.

I wrote a negative review about Wyndham Ocean Blvd. Since I wrote mine there have been two more negatives posted. I don't think T/A cares about the positive or negative. As long as it isn't offensive to anybody that reads it.

I also did an on-line Wyndham survey that was e-mailed here when I returned home. I was negative on it and never heard a word back. My guess is whoever reads those surveys weed out the bad ones before they pass info on to the big wigs.

I made suggestion to them that they should send in "mystery guest" to their resorts to see things from our viewpoints. I'd love to know if they put any thought into that.

I always had my reviews published, some good, some bad and some really ugly ;-). Didn't notice that it took longer, always got a confirmation email that they received it and then an email once it was published. Then again, I read the guidelines. I don't think they gave a cra# that some the reviews were negative. Why don't you write in and ask TA directly?
