    Do you primarily write (negative) reviews?

    When your expectations are (met) or you had a (great) time at a resort hotel, restaurant, cruise, movie or other hospitality venue are you the type of person who posts (positive) reviews online and responds to surveys? I suspect more people are quicker to post a "negative review" when they are (disappointed or unhappy) with a product or service. Happy or content people seldom “find the time” to post positive reviews. Have you posted more (positive) reviews than negative ones about products and services?

    I have to say I've posted more positive reviews. I know some people figure if you don't have something good to say don't say it. If I have a negative experience, I'll also share that with reviews. I do both so I can guide people to what I believe to be the best service or product and away from the duds.

    I post both positive and negative reviews.  I like to let a company know when I have gotten good service. And also I think it is the right thing to do to contact a company when they have not met expectations. If we do not complain and tell them what is wrong, we do not give them the opportunity to improve.

    I often review on Yelp and TripAdvisor, and the great majority of my reviews are positive (3 or 4 out of 5 stars). I find many of the negative reviews to be less than objective, and individual issues the restaurant or hotel cannot avoid; however, if I'm in a restaurant and I witness poor cleanliness, vermin, unsanitary conditions, careless cooking or dreadful customer service, I feel obliged to make note of it. When a restaurant is short-staffed and busy, I expect the service to be slower and I don't criticize that. If my plate, utensils or table are soiled, I will politely ask for a replacement. I try to be objective but, unfortunately, there are times when a negative review is well-deserved.
