Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

(continued) We were ALL told to be there between 9-11 am at the medical building on a certain day for Covid testing. The line was LONG & not moving... no shade in the line & several elderly people needed a place to sit away from the full sun & needed water. NO COMMUNICATION & no water & no shade until you were inside of the building. Line did not move AT ALL for 1-1/2 hours!!! We think the medical workers weren't even there until then. There was only 1 person doing the testing... and 1 assisting for ALL of those (maybe 50-75) people! The line took 2 hours, the actual test took 60 seconds. Several guests had excursions booked & had to no-show -- however, getting home was more important. I was mad b/c they "took" 1/2 of my beach day. )-; Then we go to guest services to get our test results the next day and SHE ACTUALLY ASKED ME TO GIVE THEM A 5 OUT OF 5!!! I told her that I could not do that, because we did not receive that type of service, etc. It's bad enough when you're GOOD and you "hint" for a 5... but to provide horrible service & then DIRECTLY ASK ME TO LIE ABOUT IT was absurd. Will never go back! (Only rating it as a 1 star, b/c ZERO is not available.) P.S.--KIDS EVERYWHERE!!! Even in pools that had signs that read "Adults Only."
