Hilton Waikoloa Vacation Offer

Today I received an offer for 5 nights/6 days from Hilton Waikoloa in return for attending a timeshare presentation. In the small print it states "Hilton Area Hotel" Has anyone accepted this offer, and if so, what Hilton Area Hotel is used and what is the quality of the room?

Thanks much for any info.

I've seen these. They either put you into the timeshare units within the Hilton Waikoloa hotel itself or at Kohala Suites or Kings Land (most desirable option but less common) which are condos

To parrot my wife's sentiments: "I will never stay at the Hilton Waikoloa, if my life depended on it."

Even as HHonors Diamond members, we will never stay at that property, even if Hilton paid for a suite, for a month.

You are welcome to it.

I'm not sure. Not that I've heard but I suppose it's possible. It seems like the terms let them put people into any HGV property.

Thanks Shea. Important to define because the pool sharing privileges are not the same, as you know.

I can't book yet - too early for next spring, but when I am able to book, I'll post results (assuming it's allowed on Trip Advisor)

I have one of the vacation offers and theyconfirmed I would be able to book at one of 4 hotels, no black out dates, the room would be 1 bedroom 1 bath units, and I had 12 months to book and use the offer. The offer was for 6 days and 5 nights with car for $798 with a future $200 gift certificate to use at a hotel after my visit. I was told all of the details would be included in my confirmation email. I went ahead and paid the deposit this morning and received the confirmation email. The only hotel mentioned is the Hotel Waikoloa and the very bottom of the email, there is a comment "If you book your dates more than 45 days after package purchase, your credit card will be charged an additional $50," so be aware of that. There is also no mention of the 5,000 points I was to receive. I actually feel like it was false advertising.
