Apple Vacations' Co-President Timothy Mullen presents the 2011 Golden Apple Awards. 145 hotels won the coveted awards, based on reviews from Apple Vacations customers.


Apple Vacations’ Golden Apple Hotel Award is bestowed upon those hotels that have earned exceptional ratings on Apple’s Vacation Satisfaction Questionnaires, completed by hundreds of thousands of Apple Vacationers upon their return home. Some are moderate and others deluxe, but all Golden Apple Hotels offer an exceptional standard of quality, service and value. Apple Vacations was the first, and remains the only tour operator to rate hotels based solely on the opinions of its customers.

The Golden Apple Award provides a benchmark for consumers when shopping for a vacation. Travel agents report that the Golden Apple designation builds consumer confidence and has a major influence on their purchase decisions. Golden Apple award-winning hotels are featured on and in Apple’s product catalogs with a Golden Apple next to their hotel name.
