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.

It’s an instagram kinda joint. Pink and white. Treehouse style sitting above the main cafe; beach space with a pagoda type seat looking out into the cool blue sea (I may be wrong, I’ve never been on social media in my life, let alone Instagram,...so I may be chatting gibberish). Very tasty breakfast bowls. In fact the best that I tried on the island. Presented in a half coconut (you can scoop out the flesh after finishing the bowl). Wonderful presentation with flowers adorning the bowl. The peanut butter French toast was the best French toast your reviewer has ever had. Probably did nothing good for the old blood sugar levels, but pressed all the right buttons for one’s dopamine receptors.More
