The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Solo is a replica of the Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Many people have provided reviews on Google Maps after visiting the mosque. This research aims to determine the sentiment results regarding visitors’ reviews by developing a sentiment analysis model using a combination of the Valance Aware Dictionary for Sentiment Reasoning (VADER) and Deep Translator methods. This research was conducted in two phases. The first phase proposed a sentiment analysis model using VADER and Deep-Translator with public datasets. Later, the resulting sentiment analysis model was applied in the second phase to analyze the dataset of mosque visitor reviews and determine public perceptions. This research compares two preprocessing models (PPTV1 and PPTV2) and continues with the translation and sentiment prediction processes. The evaluation results show the proposed model (PPTV2) achieved the best average accuracy values of 72%, precision of 83%, recall of 72%, and F1-Score of 75% for the three examined datasets. The results of visitor review sentiment obtained showed 83.3% positive, 9.5% neutral, and 7.2% negative. The analysis findings show that people are amazed by the beauty and majesty of the mosque. However, some people provide negative reviews of the mosque’s facilities.
