It can be very hard to spot fake reviews for hotels on TripAdvisor. However, I just came across fake (duplicate) reviews and then fake reviewer accounts by accident. While reading many reviews for several different hotels in Plitvice Lakes Croatia, one unassuming positive review caught my eye because a detail (free wi-fi) conflicted with the hotel ...

Spotting fake reviews on Trip Advisor or on any review site can be easy or could be very difficult given that it is becoming widespread. The only bonus is that Trip advisor is becoming well known for this behaviour amongst the travelling community and Google etc and is/has been lambasted for such. I have recently returned from a two week holiday at an ...
