    Great Visit

    This condo met our needs. We were hardly in our room because there is so much to see and do on the Big Island. The view of the ocean and surroundings out the lanai patio doors was incredible. We never turned on the TV once. The air conditioning was adequate however we had to borrow a fan for the bedroom because it was still too warm for sleeping despite the controlled temperature of 72F. The a/c wasn’t dispersing as well out the vent in the bedroom as it did for the living room. The cleaning staff were so friendly and professional. They arrived between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. each morning to clean the room. A couple mornings I was still tired so I did not have them clean. They are required to come in every 48 hours by management. We received a notification last night advising of pesticide spraying that is planned for today. It is a tropical destination therefore once a month they spray baseboards etc fo keep critters out. If you do not want your unit sprayed just let the front desk know. The pool is clean and so is the hot tub. The grounds are meticulously maintained. If you are planning to stay in then I’m sure you will notice the thick layers of dust on the bamboo furniture in the nooks and crannies. It is heaviest at the bottom around the legs. You will notice the paint job which make the unit not as aesthetically pleasing.. Overall the condo is clean and you are hardly going to spend any time in it. The sound of the surf will lull you to sleep or mesmerize you into relaxation. The kitchen was somewhat equipped and it was great to make a home cooked meal. Their are a few bbq’s for the guests to use for cooking. Overall the place is quiet. Our neighbours above have children and we can hear them running and rolling marbles or balls on the floor. It’s a little irritating since we were used to the peaceful quite the first week Jew were here. I am tempted to come back for the experience and the location near the ocean.

    Great Condo on the sea

    had a great 4 night stay here. clean room a bit dated but very comfortable. Do not stay though if you want amenities. No food or drink on the property. but decent kitchen to prepare your own. pretty close to all action in Kona. Super near by Coffee farms etc. We loved the staff and loved our stay! Thank You!

    This was a nice place but we didn't like that there wasn't a regular wall between the living area and the masterbedroom. We just stayed 1 night so it wasn't terribly bad but if we had stayed longer, that feature would have been a problem for sleep with a family of 4.

    A hidden gem

    When we drove toward the hotel, and saw the lobby sign, we had no idea we would end up rating this 5 stars. However, the condo was fabulous, got upgraded to 2 bedroom and bath. The view was very special. We were over the pool and the beautiful crashing waves against the rocks was right next to pool. One night I turned off AC, closed the screen, and fell asleep to the waves. The Unit was spotless, bstocked with new, varied, and the best appliances. The staff went above and beyond. In our 4 island vacation, this was the third. What we experienced exceeded other much more costly hotels. Thanks to all.

    Beautiful Location, Responsive Staff

    Our family of five visited Hawaii for the first time last month, and booked a week-long stay at Aston Kona by the Sea via Costco Travel. So glad that we picked this location! It has everything that you need for a family on vacation - a full kitchen, spacious rooms, and best of all, oceanfront views to die for! We had a couple of housekeeping issues, but the front desk was on top of things and resolved the issues quickly and satisfactorily. Dawn from the front desk deserves special recognition for her hospitality and fantastic local suggestions. We hated to leave, but when we did, all of us agreed that when we visit Kona again, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Aston Kona by the Sea.
