Guidelines for Responding to a Negative Review
- Thank the reviewer for their feedback.
- Apologize for their experience (even if you think the review is inaccurate/unfair).
- Respond to their negative issues point by point. If they were misinformed about something give them the correct information in a polite manner. If they are correct about lacking services tell them your plan to improve those services.
- Finish with a positive remark or by saying “we hope to see you in the future”.
- If the reviewer responds again, give them a way to reach out to you directly and take the conversation offline. That way, you will not get dragged into a public argument and the boater will feel like you are reaching out personally.
Example response to a negative review:
"Hello there! Thank you for coming back to Riva Marina. We apologize that the jacuzzi was not working during your visit. It was fixed within 24 hours and will be calling your name next trip! We also appreciate your feedback on the bathrooms. We are now working with a new cleaning service which will resolve the issues you mentioned. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!"
