To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I own the 2006 edition of this guide which I have used constantly and found very informative and useful so I thought it was time to get an updated version. Unfortunately this new guide is nowhere near the standard of my older version. There is very little info on smaller places and the recommedations (good or bad) are few and far between. The sections on accommodation and restaurants are very limited (I was especially interested in these because such facilities often close down and new ones take their place). Very disappointed.
Very good latest 15th edition. As you would expect from Rough Guides, lots of precise, well written indepth info & a few colour pics. However, I was slightly disappointed, there are not as many pages or as much detail as my 10th edition from 2005.
