The readers were then called on for detailed comments about what precisely distinguishes the average from the best of the best, making up the Gold List.
Conde Nast survey participants were required to rate each resort based on activities and facilities, food and dining, location, overall design, rooms and service. Entries include the edited comments of readers and are intended to reveal a property's character rather than to catalog its facilities. Each score represents the percentage of respondents who rated a property excellent or very good on specific criteria.
