TripAdvisor, Inc., the world’s largest travel website, reveals Grand Isle Resort & Spa was chosen as a winner in its 2012 Travelers’ Choice® awards for both Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the Caribbean and Top 25 Relaxation & Spa Hotels in the Caribbean.

Now in its tenth year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best – real travelers. Unlike any other hotel honors, TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travelers around the world. “With the help of millions of travelers around the globe, TripAdvisor is thrilled to recognize the world’s most outstanding hotels for the tenth year of the Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Christine Petersen, president, TripAdvisor for Business. “From the best bargain hotels to best luxury hotels, remarkable service, value and quality are the hallmarks of our Travelers’ Choice winners.”

“We’re so pleased to receive these Travelers’ Choice awards because they come from our guests. It’s very important that guests have a great time and a memorable experience when they come to Grand Isle. This is great validation that we’re doing a good job for them, and that means the world to us,” said Don Jelinek, General Manager, Grand Isle Resort & Spa. As TripAdvisor has continued its growth globally, featuring sites in 30 countries and in 21 languages, the Travelers’ Choice Hotels awards now highlight a broader range of spectacular properties across the globe.
