Resort comparison spreadsheet

Recommended Posts

When I was choosing a resort I made this spreadsheet to compare them based on different factors. All I have on my list are the 4.5 and 5 star resorts that were showing up for less than 2000$ all inclusive package (including air from Toronto/Ottawa) for one week for my dates (march/april 2008, I was looking in November/Decmeber 2007, using a few travel websites).


You can see that the spreadsheet isn't complete, there are lots of blanks, but I thought that the info that is there might be usefull to somebody. If nothing else maybe the criteria I used will give you ideas for stuff you should consider when choosing a resort.


I'm not going to be updating this spreadsheet anymore, I have to focus on my wedding (only 2 months left!!!) but if anyone wants to download it and update it or add more info and then repost it, please feel free.


If you are wondering what some of the criteria mean, there are some comments at the bottom of the MR page to explain.


If you can't download the spreadsheet, you may not have enough points. Ask somebody to transfer some to you.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
