The rumors that have been making the rounds online about a scam at the popular Grand Mayan resort have been quickly negated by the positive reviews being written by visitors to the hotel.
CANCUN, Mexico, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Reports have recently surfaced on the Internet warning vacationers and families from visiting the Grand Mayan. People who claimed to be recent guests of the hotel were behind the testimonials, but when a criticism of a product or service recommends an alternative to the reader it can raise skepticism as to the motive of the complaint. That was the case with the Grand Mayan scam reports and it caused many vacationers to question the validity of the rumors, which launched an investigation into how happy Grand Mayan guests were when they finished their vacation.
"We are just back from spending 1 week at this resort and all I can say is that I concur with the rest of the glorious reviews." - Sample online review of the Grand Mayan.
An initial glance at the most recent reviews posted online reveals almost nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews, but in order to truly discover if there is a problem with Grand Mayan scam complaints a further look would be in order.
Guests who take to online travel sites do so for two reasons: to either rave about an experience they want others to have or to air their grievances as a warning to potential guests. Amongst the plethora of positive guests experiences are some negative reviews of the hotel, but even most of those are about poor weather at the time of the trip and there is no mention of a Grand Mayan scam anywhere in those reviews.
Online reviews have always been a popular, and accurate, way for families to plan trips and vacations, which is why they take the time to write about their experiences. When accusations like these emerge and the online reviews directly contradict them then it is usually considered a false scam rumor, which the Grand Mayan appears to be a victim of.
