From the former owner of Hotel VIlla Bonita- Humberto Brenes

Hola! to all of you.

I really thank you for all your reccommendations and even after I have closed operations since last March 2010, you still reccomending our hotel. To all of you that did not know I HAVE CLOSED HOTEL VILLA BONITA .

I have seeing in this forum, our name Hotel Villa Bonita has been stolen and saying we have moved and it is managed by others. I have made my anouncement that I have close operations and I did not MOVE Hotel Villa Bonita to another location. It is someone who is taking dvantace of our good name and reputation. They are also using my our past reviews on this forums as theirs to deceive their clients!

The moderator of this forum should take actions on this and remove from this forum the past post that do not belong to a fake Hotel Villa Bonita" THIS IS NOT TRUE. I haven't moved or sold the hotel. We have closed HOTEL VILLA BONITA.

Hola Humberto! When Jill told me about this I was aghast! Hotel Villa Bonita was such a warm and special place and although I truly miss it I'm so happy you and your family are doing well in Turrialba as well as watching over the construction of Jim and Jill's place. They are so lucky to have you there! I hope to see you soon. :-)

Humberto,

Sorry to hear this is happening to you you and thanks for posting in the Forum for the members to read.

However, it is very unlikely that any of the TA moderators will take any action from this post. You will have to go to more official channels.

Unfortuately it seems that the owners of the business have gained access to your owners page on TA. Otherwise you would have been able to work through the channels available to owners.

I still suggest that you and others contact TripAdvisor through the Help Centre links at the bottom of each page.

Perhaps start here:

tripadvisor.ca/help/how_do_i_remove_my_listi…

But if that doesn't help because the others have usurped your listing you may have to try through here.

www.tripadvisor.ca/help/postingandediting#c6

Good luck in sorting this out and in your new ventures.

Pura vida
