Stayed at the Kona by the Sea property for a week in mid-July. The property is quite well-maintained, spacious unit (we had a 1-bdm) with a full kitchen that could have been stocked a wee bit better with cookware, and with daily maid service which was very nice. It was air-conditioned which was a life saver that week as EVERYONE... More

If you're looking for a resort type atmosphere with on-sight food and beverage amenities, this is not the lodging for you. I researched Kona By The Sea pretty extensively. After weighing the pros and cons (mostly pros), I decided to take a chance. It turned out to be the perfect place for our family of five. The staff was extremely... More

We stayed in an updated 2 bed 2 bath oceanfront condo. It was an amazing view and we loved hearing the sound of the waves right outside. The condo was spacious and clean. The kitchen had all the necessary items. The pool was good. The sand area was a good addition. Apart from that no other features at the property... More

We stayed 3 nights in a One-Bedroom Condo with Ocean view. The size of the condo surprised us and outdid our expectations. Travelling with 2 kids, size does matter. We had a completely private bedroom on one side of the unit and the kids slept on the other side in the living area. The views from the oversized balcony were... More

The hotel was great. It was down a ways from the busy part of town, making it much quieter. There was key-only access to the pool, the elevator, and the staircase, which made us feel safe. The room was very nice, very roomy, and very clean. Staff were VERY friendly! I especially appreciate Sarah, who made arrangements for us to... More

I really give the condos a 3 for the interior... Dated furnishings, including musty shag carpeting, ancient plumbing fixtures and old appliances... But all of that was worth sacrificing for the lanai, which was totally a 5... We spent as much time as possible out there watching the ocean crash on the rocks just feet from our one bedroom oceanfront... More

We have stayed here in the past and always enjoyed it. Kona Aston By The Sea is in the throws of a serious renovation which it seriously needs. Located right on the ocean it's an on going thing. This time, our room was not up to par. Furniture was not comfortable by any means. Screen sliders on the glass doors... More

The outdoor pool, lounging area, and balcony were the best attributes of the property. We had a great day relaxing on the "beach" & swimming in the pool. The second bedroom allowed you to hear every person and their luggage as they walked past your room to the elevator, had poor air circulation, and a shower made for a very... More

We got upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment, which was nice but not needed as it was just my husband and I. The good points were that the apartment was very spacious with a full kitchen and laundry (although we didn't use them), the bed was large (king) and super comfortable, they supplied plenty of towels, wi-fi was free and...
