Maritim

Just booked Maritim for May 14 after reading lots of good reviews, but now have seen lots of negative/average reviews. Should I pay a bit more and change to a different hotel?

You'll never find a hotel that gets only great reviews, I'm afraid, as there will always be something that doesn't appeal to certain people. The Maritim has a great reputation so I wouldn't be in a rush to change it.

Do the exercise of looking at reviews for a couple of other hotels that you like and you are bound to find that they also get mixed reviews. It's the balance that counts. If a hotel gets say 400 reviews and 350 are good/excellent and only 5 are really bad then it's easy to go with the majority. Often by reading the bad reviews you will get an idea of why people didn't like the particular resort. Some people expect perfection and they are upset when it doesn't happen. Sometimes the tone of the review will indicate that they are just confrontational and/or difficult by nature and impossible to please.

Thanks Dee, just realised I had clicked the button to read all the average comments together (75), compared with 900 excellent ones. Panic over, I work with the great general public so know how different tastes can be!

After seeing your post, I did some reading myself and have had a chuckle at some of the things that people moan about! Not only at the Maritim but at many other great hotels around the world.

Enjoy your holiday!!!!

Dee :-))

I have a friend who will go to the best hotel in the world and rack up a list of complaints. The moment you enter the Maritim, you will know its a good hotel.
