A Great Stay At Hilton Resorts
We visited Hilton resorts and spa during the week of X-MAS. It was a beautiful week with cool nights and warm, sunny days, also we joined the best hotel reward points program so we got ponts as well. I cannot comment on the beaches. We left the windows open and enjoyed the fresh air. The condo was spacious, easily accommodations a family of 4-6, but rated for 8-10!. We were only 2! The 2nd BR had 2 true double beds (not twins). The sleeper sofa in the LR could sleep another 2 but this arrangement would ruin the spacious, open feel of the condo, which I loved.
We also read a best hotel points redemptions story that was pretty cool Our Hilton resorts unit was located in Building 6 which was easily accessed from either entrance to the property. Parking (free) was never a problem during our week. I liked that Building 6 had easy access to the biggest of the many pools and we overlooked this pool from our balcony on the top floor.
We faced west and enjoyed sunset views from our screened and furnished balcony. A great treat. We could not see the Big Sand Lake from Building 6 but the pool view after dark was very pleasant with lots of landscape lighting. The master bath was great, and special, with a shower and separate Jacuzzi that had a 2 step surround and was at least 6 ft x 6 ft. More on the room later right now you want to know how to get hotel points right ?

I liked the design of the Hilton resorts condo that allowed the 2nd bath to be accessed from either the 2nd BR or from the hall (yes, 2 entrance doors). It was a full bath too, with a shower/bathtub combination. Nice size sink/vanity area too, with good lighting and ventilation. The Kitchen
The kitchen was fully equipped and we put it to the test, cooking every night. The laundry was located in a convenient closet behind the kitchen with shelving and full size washer and dryer. The condition of all appliances in our condo was near new. The full size refrigerator included an efficient ice making freezer. The oven, microwave, and garbage disposal all worked properly. The base cabinets were cheap plywood and the doors didn’t align. No big deal to me.
Also a little FYI when traveling by air with your pet or pets, it is important to remember that you will be charged an additional fee. Unfortunately, many first time pet travelers believe that they can use their pets and their pet carriers to count towards as a carry-on bag or a checked bag.
