I have heard it all now!

Was just reading a review and I have to laugh at some of the things that people come up with to complain about!

This review stated that:

"We had to walk over all this sand to get to where we wanted to lay on the beach!"


"There were coconut trees EVERYWHERE and the coconuts were just falling out of them! I was scared I was going to be injured!"

And these folks are the ones that are rating the resorts and posting reviews that people read and some people actually think these are legit concerns! If you have dead insects in your food, rodents in your room, blood stains on your sheets...THOSE might be legit concerns...but come on!

Please, please, please, people...when you read a review, dont stop at one negative review and dismiss a resort because of it. Research, read more, ask questions, send emails to folks that have been there....but dont judge the resort by one review written by someone that obviously should never have gotten on the plane to start with. And please....if the writer gave a bad review to a resort because it rained the entire week....or it was too hot...or too large a place....thats the writers fault for traveling during hurricane season or not reading up about the resort ahead of time.

I just read a review as well about a resort in the DR written on Sept. 19th. The writer couldnt believe how unkept the grounds were. The writer had traveled there 2 days after Hurricanes Ike, Gustave and Hannah had passed through.

*Shakes head*.

Too Funny!

Some folks just don't have a clue I guess.

Wicktrimer, I agree some people are ridiculous when they write reviews. Some complain about the silliest things. Like you said, don't just read one review of a place. Read many, if the majority of the reviews are negative there may be something to it, if there is only few negative ones, read between the lines...what are the people really complaining about. However, many people are injured every year by falling coconuts. Some serious and some not so serious, but it is real. It is not something that I wouldn't choose a hotel over though. It is up to you where you choose to sit. If one chooses to sit under a palm tree with coconuts, don't be surprised if one falls off.

One of my favourites was the reviewer complaining that the seafood restaurant served mostly fish. I bet there's a steakhouse somewhere that serves mostly meat and a vegetarian restaurant that serves waaaay too many vegetables.

One can only hope that a coconut DOES fall out of the tree and hit them on the noggin! Might knock some SENSE into their thick skulls.

These people definately sound like they came out of the shallow end of the gene pool.
