Hotel Byblos Resort has announced that it has received the prestigious 2013 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, honoring top-rated lodging businesses as reviewed by visitors from around the world on the popular travel site.
To qualify, hotel businesses must maintain an average rating of four or higher out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on the TripAdvisor Web site from around the world. Additional criteria include volume of reviews and how recently they have been submitted by TripAdvisor users. The accolade is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide and is considered a badge of honor in the travel industry.
“Byblos Resort and Casino is very excited to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Kimberly Barron, director of marketing at the Manuel Antonio facility. “We strive to offer our customers a memorable travel experience at an affordable price, and this prestigious accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on an important site like TripAdvisor.”

The hotel said in a release that it has spent more than two years retraining staff, improving the installations around the hotel, as well as adding a strict sustainable tourism policy and launching numerous community projects and recycle initiatives.
