2 Hawaii Timeshare Vacation Package Deals: Hilton Grand Vacations Honolulu (Oahu) or Waikoloa (Big Island) & Westin Vacation Club Kaanapali (Maui)

Updated at 7:20am PT on 4/27/22: Hawaii is very popular this year, so instead of booking the timeshare vacation package and picking your dates later, I would suggest locking in your dates when you book the package.  Here is a recent horror story of the Sheraton Kauai on FlyerTalk.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  Last week, I wrote Stop Ignoring Vacasa Vacation Rentals! Get Awesome Condos for 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per Night.  In that post, I shared my recently booked Vacasa Vacation Rentals in Hawaii.  If you prefer hotels over condos, I have 2 great timeshare vacation packages available.  The first is with Hilton Grand Vacations and is available to the public.  The second is with Westin Vacation Club and looks targeted, but you can reach out to Westin Vacation Club to see if you are eligible.  I have experience with timeshare presentations and have stayed at a few of these properties before.  I will go through the booking process of each to show you what it is like, what is included, and how much it costs.

Let’s get started with the Hilton Grand Vacations offer.  Here is the link to the landing page with the various properties.

Here are the complete terms and conditions from the bottom of the email:

Guests must purchase by May 9, 2022, to enjoy a 6-day/5-night stay for $649 plus tax in Honolulu or Waikoloa, a 5-day/4-night stay for $249 plus tax in Orlando or Las Vegas, or a 4-day/3-night stay for $349 plus tax in Los Cabos, Mexico at a participating hotel within the Hilton portfolio of brands (valued at $175–$500/night). Guests will receive 25,000 Hilton Honors™ Points (valued at $250) after attending a sales presentation. Redemption of Points is subject to Hilton Honors Terms and Conditions and valid membership.

You have up to 12 months from date of purchase to travel. Please read complete Details of Participation. As part of your vacation package, you’ll attend a two-hour Personal Preview and sales presentation, where you’ll learn how you and your family can enjoy the many benefits and privileges of vacation ownership with Hilton Grand Vacations.

THIS MATERIAL IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF SOLICITING TIMESHARE INTERESTS LOCATED IN THE U.S., BARBADOS, MEXICO, SCOTLAND AND JAPAN. THE COMPLETE OFFERING TERMS ARE IN AN OFFERING PLAN AVAILABLE FROM THE DEVELOPER Prices range from $8,450 – $772,990 for deeded interest; U.S. and Hawaii Collections start at $8.00 per Point with a minimum new purchase of 5,000 Points.

Hilton Reservations and Customer Care | 7930 Jones Branch Drive | McLean, Virginia 22102, USA

The first option is at the Hilton Waikiki Beach (on Oahu).  The price is $649 for 5 nights + 25,000 Hilton Honors Points.

The second option is at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club Ocean Tower Waikoloa Village (on the Big Island).  The price is $649 for 5 nights + 25,000 Hilton Honors Points.  I stayed at this property a few years ago and it is huge – so huge there is a monorail to get you from one end to the other.  If you want to stay at the resort all day and snorkel, kayak, paddleboard, play with dolphins, swim in the pools, go down the waterslides, etc. this place is for you.

The third option is at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club La Pacifica Los Cabos (in Mexico).  The price is $349 for 3 nights + 25,000 Hilton Honors Points.  I have not attended a timeshare presentation in Mexico or outside the US, so I am not sure what the process is like.  I have heard stories of all day presentations where you cannot leave until you sign something.  I would be cautious about this presentation.  Just something to keep in mind.

Going back to the first option at the Hilton Waikiki Beach (on Oahu), let’s continue doing a dummy booking to see what the booking process is like.  After tax, the total comes out to $765.56 for 5 nights + 25,000 Hilton Honors Points.  I value Hilton Honors Points at 0.5 cents per point (CPP), so 25,000 points = $125.  $765.56 – $125 = $640.56 / 5 nights = $128.11 / night.  That sounds like a great deal to me.  If you have the American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card, check to see if these properties code as a resort so you can use your $250 resort credit.  You can lock in your dates now or you can pick your dates later.

Updated as of 3/7/22

On the payment screen, you can use any credit card you want.  From past experience, I don’t think these purchases code as travel or Hilton, so you won’t earn bonus points with a Hilton credit card.

I didn’t go through with booking the timeshare vacation package, but the booking process seemed pretty easy.  The hardest part will probably be selecting your travel dates, which you should do as soon as possible before all the good dates are gone.


Now, let’s go over the Westin Vacation Club offer.  You can get a 5 night stay + your choice of 15,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points (worth about $75), 6 day Avis car rental (could be worth $300-$500), or $75 resort credit (worth about $75) for $999 at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas.  I stayed at this property a few years ago on a similar (but cheaper) timeshare vacation package offer and the resort was great.  Lots of pools and easy access to the sandy beach.  Unfortunately, this offer is only available if you received a targeted preferred invitation number (PIN).  Not to worry, I can show you how to get your own PIN below.

Here are the complete terms and conditions from the bottom of the email:

The Westin Vacation Club is part of Vistana and you can request info here.  That should get you into the Vistana email database and you should receive an email about future timeshare vacation package opportunities, or you can try calling Vistana directly at 1-888-847-2613 and seeing what is available.

If you received the targeted email, here is the link to the landing page.  Fill in your PIN (from the email) and last name, then click the Find My Offer button.

Verify the contact info is correct and click the See My Offer button.

There are 2 properties available that are side by side: Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas North and Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas.  I’m not sure which property is better, but the amenities should be same and shared by both properties.

Once you select a property, you will see 2 different accommodations: Guestroom ($999 per stay) or One Bedroom Villa ($1,348 per stay).  Assuming you pick the 6 day Avis car rental option (worth a minimum of $300), your 5 night stay would be about $140 / night in the guestroom or $210 / night in the one bedroom villa.  Both sound like great deals to me.  Remember, Marriott elite status doesn’t get you anything at timeshare properties or on timeshare vacation packages, so don’t expect any upgrades or freebies during your stay.

I spent a few minutes trying to find availability for the guestroom, but couldn’t find it.  Perhaps the website had an issue or all the days were full.  I didn’t check the one bedroom villa or both room types at the other property.  You can lock in the deal and pick your dates later for $199.

Since I entered my PIN, my information was automatically filled in for me and I could not change any of the gray fields.  Like before, I don’t think buying this timeshare vacation package will code as travel or Marriott to earn you bonus points on a Marriott credit card.

If you do go with the $199 deposit, make sure you lock in your dates as soon as possible.  Each resort has very few dates throughout the year, so if you want to go at a good time, I would lock in the dates ASAP.

I am going to pass on both of these timeshare vacation packages since I currently have 3 Vacasa Vacation Rental reservations already scheduled for my upcoming trip to Maui and Oahu, but if you are looking for a great resort in Hawaii, these are great deals.  If I had to pick just 1 for a family, I would definitely go with the Hilton Grand Vacations Club Ocean Tower Waikoloa Village (on the Big Island).  You and your family will have a great time and there is so much to do to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Just remember to stick to your guns and say no at the timeshare presentation.  I find them to be mostly interesting, with a scattering of white lies and half truths sprinkled in.  If you are familiar with Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors programs, you will probably be able to spot them from a mile away and don’t be surprised if you know more about the programs than the timeshare sales people.  One of my favorite things to do is call out their exaggerated points prices when the salespeople say that Hilton and Marriott points are worth 2 cents or more (ya, in what lifetime??).  If you have any question about either deal, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

    Do NOT book a Marriott timeshare offer in Hawaii. Some nasty reports of horrid customer service in Hawaii from Sheraton Vacation Club. Confirming packages then not having rooms once guests arrive. I’d suggest you take a look at the reports on FlyerTalk before contacting Marriott. Some real shady stuff going on there due to crazy high demand/price and them not wanting to offer rooms at this discount.

      Hi Jimmy, thanks for the heads up. I looked on FlyerTalk for that thread but couldn’t find it. Can you post the link to the thread you are referring to? Thank you.

    Simply confirming dates isn’t enough according to one poster. Can you imagine booking the package with the rez agent and getting your dates all arranged then receiving confirmation emails from Sheraton Vacation Club that the room is arranged then getting a call ***THE NIGHT BEFORE ARRIVAL*** that the room is no longer available? Are you able to reach out to SVC and see if they can provide some insight into how this happened?

      I had something similar happen with a Hyatt Residence Club timeshare vacation package a few years ago. The day I was supposed to check-in, I got a call that there was a windstorm and a big tree fell over onto powerlines and that the property didn’t have any power, so they told me I wouldn’t be able to check-in. Long story short, people on timeshare vacation packages are at the bottom of the totem poll in terms of who they care about (since they are the lowest paying customers), so we are the first people to get booted if there are no rooms available. It was a horrible experience and getting the money back took months and required a chargeback. I don’t have any contact at Sheraton Vacation Club, sorry.

    I have had nothing but success doing a scattering of timeshare stays with presentations. I guess lightning could strike out of the blue like Jimmy warns though! I’ve done the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas North in 2018 when I earned Starwood points, and then in 2021 collecting Marriott points.

    You have to be wary of lifetime limits that sometimes are not disclosed when you call. Holiday Inn Club Vacations only permits a maximum of 3 marketing getaway packages in a lifetime. Our friends were kicked out of their room mid vacation (or subject to the full rack rate).

    I joined https://tugbbs.com in order to learn the ins and outs of the system and occasionally rent from the “Last Minute” list. Those deals can sometimes be better than the presentation offers.

      Hi Jacob, I’ve had pretty good luck too. Never been to an Holiday Inn Vacation Club timeshare, but I think the closest is in Las Vegas.
