Duplicated business

My business shows up as two locations on google maps. When you do a google search it shows up the listing that was generic created by google. To show up the one I created, it need to be typed the full name of business.
I reported to google few times in the past year(s) but the extra listing still up and I now have reviews on the listing too.

Few days ago, google send me an email saying that the photos on that page reached a good number of viewers and I ask if I want to be a local guide. I don't see any advantage for me to do that (or maybe there is but I don't know). All I want now is that both listing are merged, so I don't loose the reviews we work so hard to earn. Please can you give me any advice on this!

Business name: Dominical Waverider Surf Camp
Address: Playa Dominical beach front, at Tortilla Flats Puntarenas, Dominical 11901
Phone: 506-8311-8950
Google+ : https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/102055572984427806885/+Dominicalwaverider

............
- Verified business:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dominical+Waverider+Surf+Camp/@9.2530825,-83.8650343,17z/data=!4m5...

- Not verified business:
I did tried to claim this business and verify this one (did not happened), but later on I delete the Google+ page that was created. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dominical+Waverider/@9.2530825,-83.8650343,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0...

I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks!

since both listings have the same website and phone number and almost the same name I reported the unverified one as a  unwanted duplicate.

 

It should be sorted out in the next 24 hours.

Let me know it happens as predicted by me

I am having the same problem. I created one with the correct location but when I search, it doesn't show up with other studios in the area. I'm just starting out so I only have one review on the correct site nd none on the other. 

laarts.net LA ARTS STUDIO with one review is the keeper!

Thank you so much for your help, the listing (not verified) got removed. 

Unfortunately they I lost the reviews, but I am very very happy now people will see only one business and not be confused.

Glad to help @Dominical W

 

Regarding lost reviews:

read and apply "Create a link for customers to write reviews

Share the created link with your customers asking them to review your buisness
