This is a tough situation. 

We were given a timeshare week as a wedding gift and we used it to book a place in Belize for our honeymoon.  We did a ton of research on the places available and choose one that we loved.  A few months later, we were contacted by the timeshare company (Interval International) to say that the place we choose was closing for renovations and that we were "upgraded" to a different place.  The new place was a bit nicer but was NOT ocean front, and did not have easy access to the ocean.  I was so PISSED!!  We ended up getting an ocean front place that isn’t quite as nice as the place we choose. 

I don’t really understand why the timshare company can’t confirm a spot for you, are they always this flaky?  If I were you, I’d get on the phone to them and ask when they will have an answer.  Either there are spots available or not, thats it. 

Sorry, some of my misplace timeshare anger may have come out in this 🙂

I had a great time in Belize – cave tubing was fabulous, and if you have some extra time they have an amazing zoo.

OMG, Belize sounds great but KO OLINA is totally fantastic; I have been to Hawaii over 10+ times and I am SUPER PARTIAL to Hawaii, but good luck – just think of it as a WIN-WIN…you really cannot lose.

P.S. Real Hawaii can be Belize-ish…you mention being disappointed by not being at Waikiki, but Waikiki is sooo touristy.
