We stayed in the Paniolo Greens in the mid October for a week. The resort is located between the lava fields and the Waikoloa golf course. It is about 20 mins of drive from Kona Intl Airp. Hotel is divided into 8 main buildings. I would recommend the rooms facing to golf course as they are more quiet and they do not face the lava fields which is not really "breathtaking" view. We stayed in "I" building which is in the most quiet part of resort. The BCD buildings are closer to the pool. The resort has pool with whirlpool open till 10 PM. Once a week they organize the hula dancing show. Beside this there is not much fun there, same with Waikoloa Village place. If you want to enjoy the nightlife this is not the right place to go.
The rooms were clean and spacious, completely furnished and equiped, the staff cleaned everyday and once a week (Sunday) was big cleaning. To each building belonged the gril-we enjoyed the BBQ evenings very much.
Near the resort (10 mins walking or 3 mins by car) there is a Waikoloa supermarket with a few other shops. There is also Subway there.
The Paniolo Greens is a good spot if you want to go to the beaches like Hapuna Beach or Kona Town. We spent a nice day on Ironman World Championship Competition which I can highly recommend.
Overall I would return again although the staff was not very helpful with organizing the transport for us in the beggining of our stay.
