While we all appreciate sites that are supplied for reviews for us all to read and help decide where to go (obviously such as Debbie’s), how much attention do you REALLY put into the contents of those reviews?
Again obviously, the hosts of review sites can’t be responsible for the accuracy of the reports and we must all keep in mind they are just a person’s opinion.
That being said, when I read a series of reviews on a certain resort (let’s say for arguement’s there’s 20 recent reviews), I’ll ignore the top 5 ratings and the bottom 5 as well, and I’ll consider the middle 10 to be the “meat” of the actual status, cleanliness, service level, food quantity / quality, etc, yadda yadda of how things really are there.
We all read reviews by what could be classed as perpetual whiners who would only be happy in a top-notch world-rated resort with cruise style food for $300 a person. On the opposite of the scale, some people would be happy anywhere as long as it has a bed, a pool and a beach and some food.
Anyone else do this type of filtering or do you take ALL into account?
