We stayed at Paniolo Greens the first week of July, as part of a two week vacation in Hawaii celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We used an RCI exchange to get this resort about two years ago. I wanted to have one week on the Big Island as part of our stay.
We had a two bedroom unit, upstairs, overlooking the 3rd hole of the golf course. The unit was clean, comfortable, and well equipped with towels, supplies, and utensils. There was a constant 10-20 mph breeze from the east, so we did not pay for the airconditioning. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We were first-timers to Hawaii and we decided to go with some of the tours that the resort offered in order to get a full experience.
We took the timeshare tour in order to get the discounts, but did not buy (we are Fairfield members). We took the Big Island tour (all day), the Seaquest snorkel tour (my favorite), and a luau. Jules was very informative and entertaining and Leslie signed us up for all our activities. We did reserve a helicopter tour prior to getting to the island through Blue Helicopters for the volcano.
The resort is about 10-15 minutes from the beaches near Waikoloa and about 30-45 minutes to Kona. You need to rent a car to enjoy the island. We enjoyed the stay and would stay here again.
