Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very intimidating first impression.

As a visitor to the area, a protocol more intimidating than the marae's cast a reality of consequence should 'ways' be abused. And yet there is not two that exist but one.

Misguided by stories and 'impressions', I had the privilege of seeing 'the people'. Grateful and humbled by the unity, strength and family values within.

I thank all that I have met there for the experience.

We were invited to take part in a traditional Maori welcome ceremony. The Maori elders welcomed us and we responded with a greeting in Welsh and a song.

I was made to feel welcome as well my family; the generosity and spirit of the local Iwi was overwhelming in the most positive way. I learnt much about how the Maori people value their Elders and their families.

The carvings on this Marae well intricate and generous nature; just like the people for whom this place was built.

I will forever remember this wonderful piece of New Zealand and the gloriously generous people who welcomed us and made us feel at home.

We were fortunate enough to meet the deputy mayor of the small table and were equally impressed by her knowledge and the way that she promoted this Hamlet.

I strongly recommend that you visit Wairoa and get a sense of the real of New Zealand.
