As a Hilton Grand Vacations Member for the past 13 years, my journey has been nothing short of an amazing adventure filled with unforgettable experiences, extraordinary service and joyful memories. Timeshare has motivated me and my family to plan and enjoy time together in comfortable and beautiful settings.

One of the most compelling aspects of Hilton Grand Vacations membership is the access you get to unique, luxurious properties with all the comforts of home.

From the sun-kissed beaches of Hawaii to the bustling streets of New York City, Hilton Grand Vacations has an extensive portfolio of properties catering to a variety of tastes and preferences. This versatility allows us to tailor our vacations to what matters most — whether it's a relaxing beach retreat or an adventurous urban escapade.

Hilton Grand Vacations also assures a certain standard, no matter where we stay. When our daughter was young, we needed specific amenities to travel comfortably with a baby, which Hilton Grand Vacations delivered. We also love the full, in-Suite kitchens if we want to prepare our own food.

Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare has allowed my family to travel to our favorite place, Hawaii, at least once or twice a year. Hilton Hawaiian Village® — home to several Hilton Grand Vacations properties — specifically holds a special place in my heart. We’ve had the privilege of witnessing the beauty and incredible energy of Waikiki while watching our daughter grow against this mesmerizing backdrop.

Our love of this resort began when our daughter was just eight months old, playing in the sand of Waikiki Beach. The family-friendly atmosphere ensured that each vacation was a break from routine and a way to celebrate our family milestones. Our daughter had her first swim in the pool there.

"Hilton Grand Vacations offered a canvas for our daughter's childhood chapters. Waikiki is now a place that’s so familiar, it feels like a second home."

— Rene S., Member since 2011

Hilton Hawaiian Village® is in a prime location along the shore of Waikiki Beach, which feels like a small city within Honolulu. It has a saltwater lagoon with activities for the whole family, several on-site restaurants and a mix of luxury and regular shops. You can also enjoy a full fireworks display over the beach every Friday evening. There’s always something to do or see, no matter your ideal vacation.

Hilton Grand Vacations offers game-changing flexibility in how we vacation. One of our most exciting trips was right after the pandemic. We booked Suites for two of my daughter’s best friends and their family.

We had a lot of adventures on that trip, toggling between the pools and the beach. The Team Members went above and beyond to ensure the property was clean and we were comfortable, in true Hilton fashion. The experiences, memories and laughs we had during that trip are forever in my heart, especially after years of pandemic-related stress.

Hilton Grand Vacations also allowed us to immerse ourselves in the rich Hawaiian culture. Each visit was an opportunity to connect with the local community and create lasting memories, from exploring vibrant markets to participating in traditional luaus.

Being a Hilton Grand Vacations Member is a journey marked by joy and cherished moments. Our experiences in Waikiki testify to this company’s commitment to excellence, providing a backdrop for the unfolding chapters of our family's story. As we look back on 13 years of membership, we’re grateful for the memories created — and anticipate many more to come.
