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.

We had a booking for 7:30pm made through the AX Palace Hotel. When we arrived, we waited patiently by the bar and while all the staff noticed us, no one approached us. After a few minutes of being ignored, I approached one waiter and mentioned...we had a booking for 7.30pm. The waiter checked the reservation list and said we didn't have a reservation, however, after checking with a colleague he found out we did have a booking. We were lead to a table with a single chair (for the two of us) and left alone. After 10 minutes without menus (and watching the staff sit at least 3 other parties and giving them menus and drinks) I approached the waiter and asked for service. I was told to wait and he would be with me. After waiting a further 10 minutes, I approached the waiter again and insisted he serve us before seating another couple. This was probably rude but at this point we had been waiting 30 minutes and not even received menus while at least 5 other parties already received their drinks. At this point the waiter served me (after I interrupted him trying to seat another couple) and he said "I only have two hands". I appreciate that, and I hate to be rude, but 30 minutes without any sort of service (not even menus), when I politely requested service and was ignored for 10 minutes is really poor service. The only reason they get 2/5 is they immediately served us. I understand that they are understaffed but if that is the case, don't talk the booking in the first place and save everyone the stress. I would prefer to not have a booking and walked to a take away than to be ignored for 30 minutes and made to feel that I did something wrong asking to see a menu. Will make a complaint to the hotel as well.More

Visited this place for dinner as part of our half board package whilst staying at The Palace hotel. I ordered a bbq chicken burger which was supposed to be in a bbq sauce. Was smothered in Mayo - I hate Mayo and was no mention...of this being in the burger and if was I would of asked for it without. So, didn’t enjoy that even after scraping out the Mayo. My wife had vegetable tacos - was literally just a mushroom and cheese taco. She said was tasteless and soggy. Nice restaurant but quality of food is lacking. Also found the staff member serving who was a food and beverage manager according to his badge was not overly welcoming / bit grumpy in his attitude. Wouldn’t visit here again.More
