Canceled the Royal Hideaway and booked the Grand Velas

We just canceled our reservation at the Royal Hideaway and booked the Grand Velas! We decided to cancel the Royal Hideaway because of the recent negative reviews and non heated pools. Further, after monitoring the reviews on TA for some time now I started to questions the validity of lots of reviews. You can see many reviews are written by TA user with only one review and at the bottom of the review you see "Review collected in partnership with this hotel " which is very suspect!

Hope we made the right choice...

Have a great time ar your new choice. RH works very well for us ; however, it appeared that you were unsure from the beginning.I never saw such a disclaimer posted after a review.I will go back to see if I can find what you are making reference to subsequent to a review.

Happy New Year!

That's actually a tripadvisor feature now. Not suspicious.

You will enjoy it, really loved the food both in taste and presentation. We also stayed at RH a few times, and enjoyed that as well. Have a great trip!

I am booking the Grand Velas today. I'm a tad put off by the wifi charges and of course I've read that the AI feature doesn't take effect until and certain time and you are cut off at check out time. I think it's ridiculous. The rates for our dates the prices at lots of resorts have sky rocketed....so the rate for the GV seems pretty good. It's the Zen section but hey it will do.

See this thread: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g659488-i11442-k69…

Seems like the fee is $100 per person if you want to eat/drink before check-in time.
