THe Hilton on Nassau is quite nice and recently redone. Your points would probably go a long way at that resort. There are also Hiltons all over the region, so try the Hilton website for suggestions on where to go.

You should try Flyertalk for some good ideas. I just dumped 205,000 pts on 7 nights at the Hilton Tower Bridge in London. Good luck!!

Have you considered Hawaii at all? The Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Waikoloa Village can both be gotten for 175,000 pts for 6 nights or 205,000 pts for 7 nights.

You have two identical threads. On the other one, I suggested the Hilton in Barbados. It's a really nice hotel on a nice beach. That is probably the one I'd choose.

Good choice.
I spent a week on points on the Big Island, but there's really not a "beach" there. Enjoy Barbados!

Congrats. I think it's a good choice. And I love Barbados in any case.

Thank you for all your help, but I ended up changing my mind again. I decided to make the most of the points. We are going to the Tel Aviv Hilton in Isreal for 6 days (It has a beach) and then 4 paid days somewhere else in Isreal and 4-5 days in Europe. Thank you so much for everyones help.

I am curious...I am also a Hilton gold member but didn't realize that the points expired at a certain point? Did they send you a notice that your points were about to expire?

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. As of January 14th the point scale changed. Before the 14th a silver, gold, or platnium member was able to book a 6 day stay in any grade hotel for 175,000 points now it is quite a bit higher.
