Seeing faraway relatives and meeting new additions to the family tree make family reunions exciting. However, sometimes large family get-togethers can be stressful. Planning a trip that older and younger generations enjoy equally can undoubtedly prove to be a vacation challenge. 

Host your family reunion trip with Hilton Grand Vacations to make bonding between adventure seekers and their laid-back counterparts of all ages more fun – And, most importantly, less stressful. 

Here are six reasons you should consider Hilton Grand Vacations timeshares over traditional family reunion vacation rentals. 


Anytime you get a large group together, square footage is king. We offer more space and more opportunities to be together or to spread out and appropriately social distance when necessary. 

Choose from spacious and modern accommodations ranging from 1-, 2-, 3-, or 4-bedroom suites, including multiple bathrooms. Everyone can enjoy their own space as much as they enjoy time together.

Kitchens + Dining Space

If you're the type that dreams of where you'll dine while on vacation, you're not alone. Exploring the local flavors and going out to eat is a big part of a vacation, but when you're traveling with a large group, dining out for every meal can be costly. Moving a hungry army of varying tastes can also pose a challenge. 

Arguably, one of the most significant benefits of Hilton Grand Vacations timeshares is the fully-equipped kitchen. Embrace family-style dining from the safety of your private dining space or lanai or casually gathered around the kitchen counter. 

Access to a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator allows you to:

  • Shop at local farmers' markets or have groceries delivered.
  • Store easy-to-prepare foods for lunches out by the pool.
  • Chill bottles of wine and beer and other drinks.
  • Store plenty of milk and formula for new babies.
  • Keep leftovers from eating out.
