Do you write in the guest book when you stay at a villa?
We guess less than half of people do. It used to be a lot more. Too bad.
Aside from valuable feedback for owners (mostly positive, but not always) guest books are full of suggestions. Good restaurant experiences, and bad ones. Best beaches. Day trips that went great. Places to stay away from.
Guest books are an old fashioned TripAdvisor suited just to the next guests.
When you settle in to a villa, you should spend a few minutes reading the most recent entries. You’ll probably learn something.
And just before you leave, take a couple of minutes to write something. Yes, it’s pen and paper and there’s no spell check, but it’ll come back to you, and you might give the next guests an idea and put a smile on the owner’s face.
