It took some time for us to finally pick - we just read as many reviews as we could (kinda hard because ILA is brand new, and at the time there weren't any reviews). I actually asked a lot of my guests to share their opinions on which hotel they liked best, and where they would rather stay. Most of them thought it would be awesome to stay in a new resort. After about a month or so of going back and forth we went with ILA.
The best advice I can give you is to know that whichever resort you do pick will be amazing and you will have a beautiful wedding. For me, picking where to go was one of the more stressful parts of the planning, but once you do decide it feels great, and everything else will just come together. I hope that helps
Good luck and let us know where you decide!!

It's the same in real life when you think about it. If I have a bad experience with a phone company, I will write a bad review about them online or write a letter to the company. But if I have great service etc. I will just leave it and not bother writing anything.
Also, with the recent reviews of SLS, with the wedding stuff in particular, the wedding coordinator was off work recovering from a car accident for two weeks, so they had someone fill in. Granted, it wasn't as organized as it usually was.
You can not write a review on a resort and base it all on a bunch of idiot guests who unfortunately were staying there the same time as you! Don't go on vacation during March Break or Reading weeks...it's a given you are going to have some loud, young, beer guzzling guests there! But it's not the resorts fault ya know?

And it has been told to me by a couple of TA's that if someone has a bad experience they will write a review about it and post it everywhere they can. However if they have a good time, they might not even think about writing a review about it afterwards.
