Malaysian hotels not in top 10 of travel website’s best list

Travel website Expedia has unveiled its list of the top 650 hotels worldwide ranked according to overall customer service.

To determine which hotels made it into the Insider's Select 2013 ranking, Expedia started by looking at customer ratings for the hotels listed on its site.

An additional evaluation carried out by Expedia staff served to confirm the level of service.

This prestigious list recognises exceptional customer service and attractive value for money.

Last year, Expedia established a customer rating system preventing fraudulent reviews and ratings. By appealing to travellers upon their return from a vacation, the site collects ratings only from travellers who actually stayed in the hotel in question.

1. One&Only Palmilla Resort (5 stars, San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico) 
2. Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort  (4.5 stars, Quepos, Costa Rica)
