Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉The front desk staff was very slow and rude most of the time. The checkin experience was disappointing even compared to less expensive hotel.
눇All the restaurant staff, bar staff, entertainment staff, and cleaning staff were amazing. The rooms were beautiful, the food and drinks were excellent.

눉Well... it is a kind of force majeure, but 4 out of 6 days of my stay there was seagrass very close to the beach and the sea was not that pleasant to swim in, a lot of seagrass was on the beach as well. The ones who are ok with amazing swimming pools at Sun Palace did not feel the difference, but for me the sea is important and it was a bit of a disappointment. But what can you do with the mother nature in such circumstances? So it is more about my personal disappointment than about disadvantages of the hotel. Also, early in the morning one day the staff was doing something in the corridor and it was heard from the room, it was at about 7 a.m. Not that much kind of a bother, but still. Probably, some soundproof could be added to the rooms.
눇This was the case that second experience was much better than the first. The hotel applied incredible improvements as compared to the last year regarding quality of food, attention and of conditions of the room. The staff remembered me from the last year, which appeared to be quite pleasant. The food here is exquisite, high quality, for example the seafood grill or sweets or waffles! And you do not have to worry as it is a truly all inclusive hotel, I was not put under stress in any of the cases. They let me attend lunch after my check-out, which was such a pleasant surprise. I was staying at ocean view room on the 8th floor and it was totally enjoyable! The service got much friendlier even though still not pushing or distractive. There are many options for different types of leisure. I totally liked my stay here and will try to return as soon as there is opportunity. And it is SOOOO GREAT it is adult only! It was so great the staff was not trying to bother me in the morning this time.

눉We have spent $1,300.00 for two nights incl. a concierge...Hotel is dated and for such an amount of money we have expected a better hotel room - finishes etc. - also after we have spent two nights/ days at this hotel we moved to the Paradisus by Melissa and it was less expensive per night over the Valentine s day and the hotel over all was way more luxurious and felt just nicer; on the top it a week later I wanted to go back to the hotel since I wanted to use the ATM inside and asked the bell boy to get access; he refused and said these are the rules; I have showed him receipts of my stay the week prior and he still did not grant access; I asked for the Manager or Security guy in charge and he just laughed at me together with his other colleague; I was in a need of cash for a taxi and literally was on the street with no working ATM in the area and had arrange myself differently; maybe it is just me but this hotel is compared to e. g. The Paradisus (Royal Service) not worth its money (in my case $650.00 / night)

눉Check-in was a bit overwhelming as we were required to sit down with an excursion planner and had to go through every detail and price for each excursion before we were allowed to go to our room. We disliked this as we had been traveling and wanted time to relax and unpack before going over all of these details. Room service food was notably worse than food served in the restaurants.
눇The room was excellent and the location on the beach was great. We enjoyed the restaurants and spa and it was typically easy to communicate with the staff in English.
