do the management read trip advisor reviews


I have noticed that the management at GBH cayacoa have stopped responding to reviews on trip advisor, are they fed up with some of the negative reviews and no longer monitor this site? or too busy to respond to them, we have booked to go here next year and although most reviews are really positive some are not so, although we do appreciate we all have different tastes etc it would be nice if we could read that the management are aware of what is being written and a suitable response given

Yes, the management does read the reviews and most replies seem genuine BUT...The only problem is when management does respond on tripadvisor and their response is pure BS. The management wrote a reply to a review I posted and their reply was rubbish. Purely lies! Everything they said they did to try and "right a wrong" was incorrect. They could not have done any of what they said because we were already gone from the resort and headed back home.

I know for certain that the reviews on TA are read by LGBPCL management regularly and that positive/negative feedback is passed onto the appropriate staff as well as discussed in daily staff meetings.

I'm looking forward to our next visit - likely after the current construction is completed.

It would be helpful if they also kept an eye on the forum posts. Marga has highlighted current problems with drinks, but no one has mentioned this in reviews.

Marga also mentioned the fact that she did not like rooms 318 and 319 but you may recall in July a couple were allocated those rooms and thought they were fab, I guess it is all subjective and down to personal preference - if you have been to lots of five star hotels especially in Dubai I guess that some elements at Cayo might let it down.

Marga and Dayel both have mentioned the fact that they prefer the public beach and we thought it was great but only on those days when there were no trips, on those days it could get very noisy - but again it is great to have a choice at Cayo, some resorts your beaches are one - take it or leave it.
