I've just read my umpteenth review where the person has declared that this hotel or another is definitely not a five star or is a three to four star at most! As if to suggest that they are the victim of an elaborate ruse.
Simply put, there is no official star rating system in the Caribbean. It is not regulated by anyone. Yes, some countries in Europe have standards that are regulated; however you cannot take that standard and apply it to a resort or hotel in different countries.
