The 35-year-old woman said TripAdvisor had initially refused to post a review in which she claimed she had been dragged into the bushes by a hotel security guard and raped while staying at a resort on the Mexican Riviera in 2010.
The travel site has added a new warning message for businesses where sexual assault and other significant safety incidents have been reported. "Accordingly, you may wish to perform additional research for information about this property when making your travel plans", the warnings read.

Additionally, TripAdvisor said it has amended the communications about hearsay that it sends to its users, making "changes in order to be more clear about the reasons the review doesn't meet guidelines and what part of it is in violation". The new policy was first reported by The New York Times.

The company did an inventory of reviews posted in the previous year and found "thousand of issues come up about health and safety and discrimination", he said.

Early this month, TripAdvisor was widely criticized for removing a 2010 review written by Kristi Love on Iberosar Paraiso Maya, a beach resort in Mexico. Destinations will be marked for up to 3 months before needing a new review unless TripAdvisor extends it.
