Last time Hilton had a “Resort Escapes” promotion it was for a free night certificate after certain number of nights. This time, however, it is just a fifth night free by booking a special rate plan PGRES1 or RE1. You can access Hilton’s web page for this promotion here.
This offer is valid for bookings made between March 15 and April 30, 2013, for stays up to September 30, 2013. Note that you need to book at least 14 days before you arrival date to get this rate. Hilton also charges one night deposit, although this rate is cancelable until 7 days before scheduled arrival.
Seems that all the resorts participating this promotions are in the Americas & the Caribbean.
You should always check other discount rates as well. It is likely that you will often find cheaper AAA, Advance Purchase, MVP discounted rate, Corporate Benefits Employee Offer or Little League rates.

The 5th night free rate is $103.
The lowest rate is $96, but you cannot pull that if you search for the rates using the above link. You need to start the search on a fresh browser.
I just hate when hotel websites won’t show all the available rates. In this instance, the Hilton’s website wouldn’t show any other rates than the “Resort Escape” one, although lower ones were also available. Just do the search using regular search. The 5th night free rate will also show up.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
