Surprisingly perfect!

Before making our booking at this resort I had read some mixed reviews but our apartment (309) really exceeded our expectations. For two people it was incredibly spacious: a huge bedroom with TV and ensuite, another bathroom, full kitchen, combined lounge/dining and big balcony that had a beautiful view over the ocean. It also had very convenient underground parking and the grounds of the resort were absolutely beautiful and meticulously maintained. An added bonus was that we were given a card to access free DVDs from the machine near reception - nice to watch after dinner at night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. From our point of view there was nothing that we didn’t like. If you are thinking of staying here please note that you will need a car as there are no restaurants or supermarkets within reasonable walking distance.

A hidden gem!

Aston kona by the sea We totally enjoyed our 6 night stay at this ocean front property. The property is immaculately groomed with beautiful gardens and a welcoming staff. Our two bedroom ocean front room had a master bedroom with a full ocean view. Stunning. The balcony was large and had a table to seat 4 and one lounge chair. We spent many hours there enjoying the spectacular view. The kitchen was smallish but well appointed. The only thing missing was placemats. The decor was bright Hawaiian and in good shape. I loved the colors as it was the same as my home. The pool was a perfect temperature and it was never hard to find a place to lounge on the comfortable lounge chairs. There was a Beach front area with sand and loungers too. This property has no beach as the shore is very rocky here and not really safe for swimming. But Two nice beaches are ten minutes by car. The only restaurant in walking distance is Ajs barbeque which is number one rated by trip advisor. It is located in a craft filled shopping area called Ali gardens. Tons of shops and restaurants are less than ten minutes away by car.

Very relaxing

Enjoyed our 4 days stay there we had a spacious Ocean Front/Facing room which was comfortably furnished. Big enough for family of Four with two teenagers. - I was considering a two bedroom. But a single bedroom with 2 baths was very comfortable. Receptionist were very friendly and gave us good information of the lay of the place and surroundings when we checked in. There aren’t many places to eat nearby. So will need a car Of course with a full kitchen not a problem if you plan. I would definitely stay there provided you get a ocean front. The ocean is close by so it is great to hear the crashing of the waves in the morning. Place is well maintained!! We got this place as a selection from Costco package.

Nice hotel overall

Overall I was extremely pleased with the hotel! There were some nice very nice aspects such as the home like environment. We stayed in a two bedroom condo. It was very nice to have a kitchen as well as a washer and dryer. We are a family of 5, it slept 4 very comfortably and the 5th got the sofa couch (which I would only recommend for young children that don’t care where they are sleeping). The resort doesn’t have lots of amenities. They have a pool and spa then another area with community grills, so you can cook outdoors. You cannot access the ocean from the hotel. You are on the water, but no beach that you get too. I think that may be more of the norm on this island though. The problems that we had was the dishwasher drain was not connected so when we started the dishwasher a massive flood happened. Thank goodness we didn’t start and leave, and we were able to stop the dishwasher. My husband fixed the drain issue and no further problems. Also the washer did not work. We had them come look at that. We never got notification that it was fixed, but after trying it a few more times it eventually worked, so I assume they came back and fixed it. Lastly the doorbell didn’t work, which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it seemed most people used used that so they would just wait at our door. The housekeeper would use it, and when we didn’t answer she would come in. Of course we were still there. One time she continued to clean, which was a little odd and halted us getting ready to leave for the day. Overall the place was nice. Needs a little maintenance done, but I understand how things could be missed. I wish they had a log that could be filled out during your stay so you could report maintenance problems, so the next vacationer doesn’t have the same problems. Lastly, we book excursions through an Expedia rep that was next to check in. Don’t do that! I didn’t realize that they did not work with the hotel and when we had a problem they had packed up and left to another hotel. We had to hunt them down to get our refunds. The individual companies could not refund us because we booked through Expedia. I would get the information from them, then boom yourselves. No benefit for booking through them. Also we found that they gave us some misinformation, so if we would have called ourselves we would have booked some different trips.

Great location

You can't swim right next to the hotel because of the strong surf and jagged rocks, but there's a fun salt water pool that the ocean fills as well as a fresh water pool. The best part about the hotel is its location between a couple of great beaches though. Its also walking distance to the main Kona strip for shopping and restaurants. Beware that the only separation between the master bedroom and the living room is a divider without much sound or light protection.
