indeed, I was very impressed with a good number of the reviews submitted in the past few weeks, it was difficult to narrow them down! I honestly expected to only have to choose 5 or 10 at the most for the poll.

Did not expect this to be as hard as it is. All of the reviews are detailed and each is very good it their own way.

I realized that I was leaning on voting for an area I preferred. I read them again and actually voted for a place I will never go. The reason for my vote, the review just put me there with the family.

@TUGBrian not sure I like this contest because the reviews are so good making a choice is not easy as many are the best and because reading all of them is very time consuming. I really only like to read where I want to go and ultimately I believe votes will lean that way.

Had a hard time deciding between 5 of them, but decided to go with one that hadn't had any votes, yet. Oddly, none of the 5 reviews that I liked the most were at locations where I'll every stay. I guess they painted such a detailed picture, that I felt like I was there.

Wow only 29 voted, with 2k views. I am surprised, I expected more. It took lots of time to read all the reviews, maybe some viewed it as too much time. Maybe a raffle of some sort for voters to entice more participation or narrowing down the best to fewer reviews. Maybe another tugger has a good idea how to get more participation.

cant see offering a prize for the review AND a prize to vote on the reviews!

im going to try to trim down the finalists a bit more for the feb contest in hopes that it makes it easier for folks to read them all to cast a vote!

Thanks! I'm glad that people enjoyed the review and I hope the contest helps get more people writing detailed reviews! Whenever I think about staying at a new resort, the review section is the first place I check out, and would imagine it's the same for most of us.
