The Grove Resort & Water Park Orlando Wins 2021 Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Award for Most Saved Hotels

Orlando, Florida (June 10, 2021) – The Grove Resort & Water Park Orlando today announced it has been recognized as a 2021 Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best award winner for the most saved hotels for the second year in a row.  Ranking not only number seven out of 25 but also being the only Orlando resort, The Grove Resort & Water Park moved up nine spots from last year and is positioned alongside other elite hotels and resorts in the United States ranging from Hawaii to Las Vegas to New York City.  Throughout a challenging year, The Grove Resort & Water Park stood out to travelers and provided an amazing experience despite unprecedented circumstances. Based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, award winners represent travelers’ ultimate favorites around the globe.


“We are honored to receive this very prestigious recognition by Tripadvisor, especially during a year that was so unpredictable” said Rod O’Connor, General Manager at The Grove Resort & Water Park Orlando.  “We work diligently on a daily basis to ensure that all of our guests have a memorable and safe experience while visiting The Grove and we look forward to continuing to serve all who come stay with us.” 

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that delighted guests more than any others in the past year even as they navigated changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers who visited, this award speaks to the exemplary service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.”
