  1. Lawrence Gerhold

    Just finished looking at the Unofficial Guide Las Vegas 2016 and was alittle disappointed I couldn’t find a mention about the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Flamingo (#25 rated Tripadvisor) or Holiday Grand Vacations Club – Desert Club
    (#38 Tripadvisor). I had planned to stay at one or the other. You guys didn’t even give either of them them a mention. Wondering why?

      Hi Lawrence: Thank you for your patience. I had to check with Bob on this one. Bob says: “We don’t have any problems with the Grand Vacation Club at the Flamingo or the Holiday Grand Vacation Club. Because there are so many timeshares in Las Vegas, our treatment has always been a greatest hits approach rather than providing comprehensive coverage. Our favorites are Elara at Planet Hollywood, Signature at MGM Grand, Trump Hotel Las Vegas, and Wyndham Grand Desert on Harmon. There is a ton of info on most Las Vegas timeshares on If you book directly with an owner they’ll often cover taxes and resort fees. Good hunting.” Hope this helps and indeed good hunting!
