10 Best Hilton Beach Resorts In America

Tips : Accommodation

What are the 10 best Hilton hotels and beach resorts in America? Hilton has some brilliant hotels and resorts and includes the luxury brands of Waldorf Astoria, LXR Hotel & Resorts, and Conrad. The best way to get a discount at a Hilton hotel is to book with an elite Preferred Partner Impresario agency like our luxury travel concierge. See what our clients say about us and how thrilled they are with the extra benefits we provide at no extra cost.

If you book on the Hilton website direct, you may not get the best deal. Book your next Hilton, Waldorf Astoria, LXR Hotel & Resorts, or Conrad stay via our luxury travel concierge and we can secure you free loyalty-style benefits (on top of your own status and membership benefits), room upgrades and perks, for no extra cost.

Typically, our free Hilton Impresario client benefits include:

  • Best available rates
  • Complimentary breakfast for two
  • $100 USD hotel credit per stay, or local currency equivalent
  • Next category upgrade (subject to availability)
  • Double Hilton Honors Points for the client
  • Complimentary welcome gift

The great thing is that you can get these free benefits while taking advantage of Hilton’s special offers, which you can find on their website or from our agents, who can advise on the best offers.

We have selected the best Hilton Beach Resorts in the Caribbean, which offer the perfect place to relax after an unprecedented year.

1. Grand Wailea A Waldorf Astoria

If you are looking for one of the best Hilton beach resorts in the world, look no further. Overlooking the southern shores of Maui, the Grand Wailea A Waldorf Astoria Hotel is a 40-acre property on the edge of the ocean and is the best Hilton hotel in Hawaii. The Grand Wailea A Waldorf Astoria highlight is the tropical freeform pool which comes complete with slides and is a dream come true for families. This hotel is next door to the Four Seasons on the same beach but usually comes in somewhat cheaper. The rooms are not as special as the Four Seasons, but the pool is amazing.

This resort is situated on one of America’s top beaches featuring luxury accommodations, the action-packed 2 000-foot long Wailea Canyon Activity Pool, the unparalleled Spa Grande, the exquisite Seaside Chapel for weddings and vow renewals, and an array of recreational activities, including championship golf and tennis.

The enchantment begins upon arrival with a lei greeting and continues as you soak up sunshine to the whispers of palm trees. Explore the beach and pools by day, then dine by torchlight after viewing a spectacular sunset.

2. Casa Marina Key West A Waldorf Astoria Resort

On the edge of the Caribbean is the legendary Casa Marina Key West, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. Nestled along the island’s southern edge, overlooking more than 1,100 feet of beach reserved exclusively for hotel guests, this Key West hotel provides an elegant yet refreshingly simple hideaway for travelers.

3. Caribe Hilton

The U.S. territory of Puerto Rico is one of the closest Caribbean islands to the mainland United States. As a U.S. territory, it does not require a passport to enter if you are an American citizen.

Admire ocean and tropical garden views from Caribe Hilton, one of the most famous hotels in Puerto Rico. Set on a secluded peninsula with 17 acres of lush foliage, this San Juan resort is situated between historic Old San Juan and the culturally rich Condado area of San Juan. Guests can enjoy the oceanfront pool complex, complete with a swim-up bar. Amid the paradise also lay hammock gardens, tropical gardens, and a bird sanctuary.

4. Boca Beach Club A Waldorf Astoria Resort

Boca Beach Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, is an oceanfront haven set on a private peninsula in Boca Raton, FL. This modern oasis is part of the Mediterranean-inspired Boca Raton Resort & Club, and guests may enjoy all amenities and activities at both resorts. Enjoy lavish and sun-filled guest rooms, the world’s top-rated spa, 11 restaurants and lounges, seven swimming pools, two acclaimed golf courses, and endless recreation. Welcome to a truly peaceful retreat.

5. Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club

For travelers looking for a getaway where the hotel is the main attraction, consider Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club. Perched atop a seaside bluff in Dana Point and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this AAA Five-Diamond Award-winning resort is the perfect beach-club style oasis for days spent relaxing and soaking up the sun. Choose between a spacious guest room or suite, each with large marble bathrooms and private balconies offering sweeping views to either green gardens and palm trees or the blue ocean waves. With three pools, a private beach club, and seven on-site restaurants and bars, guests will find themselves immersed in the coastal luxury California is known for, all without ever having to leave the resort.

6. Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is an enormous Hilton hotel set out in big high-rise blocks, close to the Ala Moana shopping mall. Set among a tropical landscape covering 22 acres, the hotel boasts Waikiki’s widest patch of sandy beach as well as Waikiki’s only saltwater lagoon and real-life penguins wandering around the grounds. You can book the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Resort for 60,000 Hilton Honors points per night.

The nice thing about this hotel, beyond being located on the shores of the beach, is that many of its dining and drinking venues spill out onto the beach. This makes this resort ideal for a sunset cocktail. But manage your expectations. This resort is high rise and big and on the edge of a city, so it is busy and urban, which may be a surprise if you expect a remote escape.

On the bright side, any hotel in Waikiki is convenient for all the attractions, and the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is only a 10-minute drive from Pearl Harbor and 25 minutes from Honolulu International Airport (HNL). Ala Moana, the largest shopping mall in Hawaii, is just a five-minute drive away, or you can walk there or take one of the open-air Trolleys if you prefer.

The resort has a Mandara Spa, five swimming pools, and over 20 restaurants and bars. Rainbow Tower rooms and suites have stunning views, and the whole hotel is set across five towers. Each spacious room features views of the resort, Honolulu coastline, or the Pacific Ocean. Select a suite for extra space and amenities, or choose a room at the exclusive oceanfront Ali’i Tower offering private check-in and enhanced services.

It is worth mentioning that we think a paid upgrade to the Ali’i Tower is worth it. This tower has its own separate check-in area, a private pool with a hot tub, and gives you a bracelet that you can use to jump the line at just about any restaurant on property. Hilton Honors Diamonds often get decent upgrades here too.

7. Hilton Waikoloa Village, Big Island

Hilton Waikoloa Village stands out for its beautiful and massive gardens. In fact, this hotel is so large that they provide an air-conditioned monorail train that runs from one end to the other end of the resort every 10 minutes or so. It takes 10-15 minutes to ride the full distance, as it stops maybe 5 times and waits for a minute or two for loading and unloading. Take the little boats around the gardens at night and enjoy the lights in the gardens. There’s an artificial lagoon pool at this resort rather than a beach at this Hilton, which may be a disadvantage for families.

8. Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach

Another Hilton option in Waikiki is the Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach, where you can book a one-bedroom suite with a pull-out bed for 70,000 Hilton Honors points per night. As with all Embassy Suites, you get free cooked-to-order breakfast and access to complimentary drinks, snacks, and weekly entertainment at the evening poolside reception.

9. The Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel

Set along the Pacific Ocean, The Waterfront Beach Resort in Southern California offers a prime oceanfront location within walking distance of the landmark pier and shopping and dining at Pacific City. A top destination among hotels in Huntington Beach, California, this full-service resort and spa is also one of the best family-favorite beach hotels in Orange County and is just 30 minutes to Disneyland®. Relax with two pools, waterslides (must be 48 inches to slide), private cabanas, on-site dining, bike rentals, fire pits, a Shortboard Kids Club, Offshore 9 Rooftop Lounge, and endless surf steps away.

10. Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort

Discover the sandy stretches of Fort Lauderdale Beach from this all-suite resort facing the waterfront. The resort is just three miles from Las Olas Boulevard’s vibrant restaurants and shops, with Fort Lauderdale Airport less than seven miles away. Unwind at the full-service spa, and enjoy a wraparound deck area boasting an outdoor pool and private cabanas.
