Hawaii the Second Time Around

A January 2002 trip to Hawaii (Big Island) by karenkayp

Quote: The second time we went to Hawaii, we spent an entire week on the Big Island. From the beautiful beaches to the lush green pastures of the Parker Ranch to the volcanic lava fields, all a "must see."

Best Things Nearby:The magnificent scenery! Shopping center with restaurants nearby.Best Things About the Resort:Well-maintained, clean, and spacious units.Resort Experience:Paniola Greens is in a beautiful setting. I read all the reviews for this resort before getting there, so I was prepared for the wind. The first three days we had beautiful weather and no wind...then the winds started and continued all through the rest of our stay. However, the winds didn't spoil our time there and we enjoyed our stay very much. We had a second floor unit. Once we arrived I wished we had a ground floor unit as not only do you have to go up to your unit, but up a long f...Read More

Restaurant | "Bubba Gumps"

This restaurant is excellent, from the appetizers to the dessert! Of course, in Hawaii, you cannot beat the outdoor dining overlooking the ocean, so the atmosphere is also excellent! We had the "Chilly Shrimp", which is their Peel and Eat done up in Southern Style. We also had the Jenny's Favorite Smoothie--cranberry juice, strawberries, and non-fat raspberry yogurt.

Jameson's by the Sea

Restaurant | "Jamison's By the Sea"

Quote:
Jameson's is a traditional favorite of Hawai`i residents on the Big Island. This restaurant offers sunset dining in a casual atmosphere with great views of the ocean overlooking the Magic Sands Beach. Jameson's specialty is seafood, and the delicious entre that we had was the Mahi Mahi sauteed with macadamia nuts. There are also steak and chicken dishes, along with a variety of salads on the menu. It is located in the Jamison's Hotel and the outside doesn't look anything like a fine dining restaurant. But once you enter you are immediately aware that it is going to be positive experience.
