TripAdvisor Removes Legends “Murder” Reviews

TripAdvisor has removed at least 10 recent reviews about Legends, the five-star Mauritius resort where Michaela McAreavey was killed when she disturbed intruders in her room in early January.

Three members of Legends hotel staff have been arrested in connection with the killing and charged with her murder.

TripAdvisor has since taken down about a dozen reviews  which warned tourists to stay away from Legends because of the murder.  At time of writing, one review posted in support of the hotel which also refers to the murder obliquely has been allowed to remain.

The reviews that were posted then removed
