We are Hilton Grand Vacation owners. We have been to HI and Cabo so far. Each place was a huge wow!!!! This was our third Hilton Resort. I must say it was a huge disappointment. The impression in the marketing materials was that this place was very close to the ocean. In reality, one could see the ocean off in the distance, across the 5, but a set of binoculars are almost necessary. It is not within walking distance. The next door Crossing Golf course is a nice feature, but it is not for the faint of heart. I am a 6 handicap and this was a very challenging course. 18 handicappers should beware and bring a lot of balls; however, it is an excellent course. The rooms are extremely nice. We had our entire family (9 Adults and 2 kids) in two three bedrooms. The bedrooms have first rate beds and are spacious- no problems here. They have huge dining room tables which accommodated our family dinners and family games easily. Costco is only a mile or two away. Many many restaurants and shopping are a very short drive. But there was nothing at this place that said "resort". In fact, in its current state, the next door nearly Sheraton swallows it up. Ironically, they do share features with the Sheraton. My son and daughter in law got a wonderful couples massage at the Sheraton which was arranged by the Hilton staff. The staff was excellent. I have no complaints with them. The biggest problem I had with this place is that it absolutely had no wow factor once you opened the door to go outside. There are no amazing views. The pool and workout area are modest at best. They are nice, clean, but no pizazz! I recommend this place only for those who have no expectation of coming to a resort. It is a nice small hotel.
