Property damage

Our single December 6 guest backed her truck into our front driveway wall, dislodging seven bricks.  My wife and I saw the damage after our guest returned that evening.

When our guest was about to check-out the next morning, she did not mention the brick-wall damage she caused.  So, I asked her about it.

Instead of apologizing, the guest said our driveway entrance is poorly designed (see photo).  I am more upset our guest attempted to leave without telling us of the damage she caused, than the wall damage itself.

Although I can reassemble the dislodged wall bricks, shall I give this guest a negative Booking.com review for her dishonesty?
