and I do not appreciate the irritation of the following three items.
1. Peeps that use a forum as if it were a blog.
It is not a place for two way conversations.
2. Peeps that use a specific forum when they could and should use a more general one.
If a specific one is used it should be the town forum as close as possible to the resort. The Princess or Valentin should be on the Riviera Maya forum ...or even the Puerto Morelos. Those resorts south of Playacar should use the Akumal or Adventuras.
3. Posting of reviews on forums.
If you post the review in the proper place we get a common basis for evaluation of the resort. They're easy to find and the format is fixed. Photos and videos can be added. We even get a chance to rate them as to helpfulness.
Perhaps it is because the posters feel a kinship to a specific forum even if it isn't relavent to their topic. They want to make sure they'll get gushing comments and kudos. For whatever the reason .... IMHO it would be great if peeps followed the rules.
Maybe then those that enjoy the community of Playa del Carmen will get more input regarding the non-AI hotels, condos and the businesses and activities of the town they have grown to love and enjoy.
