Disney’s Two Beach Resorts Earned AAA Four Diamond Award Ratings for 2019

Disney Vero Beach Resort

Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in Florida have both earned the  AAA Four Diamond Award Rating in 2019

While Disney’s theme park resort hotels tend to get most of the attention, Disney also has two spectacular beach resorts located in Florida and Hawaii.

For 2019, the two Disney Beach Resort Hotels have once again earned the AAA Four Diamond hotel rating, putting them among the best of the best in their hotel peer group.

The two Disney Beach Resort hotels receiving the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award Rating for 2019 are:

The brackets indicate the year that each hotel received it’s first AAA Four Diamond Rating and has consecutively appeared on the list. With seven consecutive years as a AAA Four Diamond Rated property, Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa has been on this list since the year it opened.

Disney Aulani is a stellar property located in the upscale enclave of Ko Olina on Oahu. Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is a relatively unknown, but exceptional resort located on the Atlantic Ocean in Vero Beach, Florida. Both of these are Disney beach resorts that I frequent quite regularly and I can attest first-hand that they are well deserving of these honours.

These Disney Resort Hotels join the top rated Disney Resorts at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort, which also received this coveted honor.

Only 6.3% of the 27,000 hotels and resorts inspected for AAA Diamond Award consideration actually receive a Four Diamond Award Rating, so this is quite an achievement for these luxury Disney resort hotels.

How the AAA Diamond Ratings are Awarded

AAA 4 Diamond AwardAccording to AAA, the “AAA Diamond ratings for hotels represent a combination of the overall quality, range of facilities, and level of services offered by the property.

In the case of the Four Diamond Award, AAA describes the hotel recipients in this category as having the following qualities:

“Refined, stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.”
