Paniola Greens is not a typical Hawaiin Resort. It's a bunch of condos on a golf course about 8 miles to the beach. Some units have an ocean view, and most have a nice golf course view. The location is great because its near the center of the big island so you can drive to any part to enjoy the day there. The unit is more roomy that a hotel room, and includes a full kitchen. Food is expensive in Hawaii, so stop at Costco when you land and load up on groceries.
