You don't have much but your last vacation two years ago to compare it to. If you are someone who travels frequently, staying at the worlds top resorts, you have a broader view of what constitutes a spectacular resort. Let's say you, the more experienced traveler, have stayed at the same Sandals as the first person but have also vacationed to Laucala Island and The Brando. Now, the latter two resorts will set your upper bar and you'll view Sandals as a mediocre/packaged luxury resort.

If you aren't an experienced traveler, you will be wowed by far more and proceed to rate everything 4 or 5 stars. If you are experienced, you have enough of a data set to accurately rate hotels/resorts/restaurants etc.
Well, for example just around the corner I&C has a lot of very interesting people who work there; lots of high school bulldog shirts walking around this area. I'd rank it higher than Amanyara.

Thank you! I would think it's the service that makes the experience stand out. It's just the right mixture between formal and relaxed, that makes guests feel welcome and at home.

Even their comments on hotel # 50, The Rittenhouse in Philadelphia are a joke, comparing this property to NYC's The Plaza with its "illustrious history." The Rittenhouse is good, but it's a new building and the only history of is that the building sat less than half-finished for many years, an eyesore in one of Center City's prettiest neighborhoods until someone finally finished the project to turn the site into a four star hotel and luxury condo mixed-use building.
