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.

We were lucky to have a port call in Napier during the weekend of the annual Art Deco Festival. There were classic cars on display, many people dressed in period costumes and lots of street fest activities. We also took time to walk along the beachfront walkways and see the beautiful black sand beaches. It was a beautiful afternoon, well-spent.

Napier, New Zealand was virtually destroyed by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 1931. In the short span of several years, the rebuilding of Napier's Central Business District resulted in one of the highest concentrations of art deco buildings in the world. It was fun strolling the streets and admiring the buildings of the Napier CBD restored in Art Deco style...very impressive.

Napier is synonymous with art deco. The positive event resulting from the 1931 earthquake was the reconstruction of the city with 147 Art Deco buildings that include Egyptian Mayan and Māori motifs. Many of the buildings have 1930 facades that reflect the beauty of a bygone era. Some of the most notable buildings include the Masonic Hotel, Daily Telegraph Building, the National Tobacco Company building, the ASB Building, the Napier Municipal Theater, Scinde Building, and the Public Trust Office. Each year in February the town celebrates with an Art Deco Festival held over four days through dress, classic cars, music, dancing, performances, and special events. It draws visitors from all over the world. Because of its Art Deco buildings, the city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
