This is not a high end condo rental so if you are looking for luxury this is not your choice. However it was well furnished, clean, and comfortable. The location is perfect-near restaurants and businesses yet still very quiet. The setting is just beautiful. The grounds are well kept and gorgeous. The ocean is right there and wonderful to hear...

Room was fantastic, very large. Free WiFi and parking was a big benefit. Pool was great, though a little disappointing they close it at 10pm and kick you out, however probably good for families and older guests. Only downside is proximity to food which makes it hard to have a night out if you want to have a few drinks.

Family vacations are an important part of life and we take several every year. A recent flight sale brought us to a state which none of us had visited before, but one that every family member was anxious to see. That state was Hawaii and our choice for lodging was Aston Kona by the Sea. We decided to go with... More

Spend FIVE glorious days on the Big Island and after having stayed at an Aston Resort on Kauai, decided to stick with what we knew. Check in was a breeze and service was a pure delight! They had a few cancellations so they upgraded our room to a seafront suite on the house! The rooms were clean and room service... More

The views here are second to none!! I took my mom here and we really enjoyed our stay. Great location. Friendly staff. Very clean. Balconies, kitchen, living room & two bedrooms topped it off nicely! I recommend this hotel to anyone that wants a nice quiet upscale resort experience.

We loved our stay at The Ashton Kona by the Sea! The rooms were so nice and large and beautifully decorated. Having a full size kitchen was nice. We were able to eat our breakfast before heading out for the day. The view from our room was breathtaking! I wished all of the places we stayed while on our vacation... More

From the front desk to the security, what can I say. They're just amazing, courteous and friendly which is rare now a days even in a 5 star hotel. They go out of the box. The place is amazing too but the staff provided exceptional service.

Fantastic view from balcony & grounds were very well kept. Condo was in ok condition but old & outdated furniture. Carpet needed replaced & walls were showing wear. Very quiet after 10pm. Woman at desk was very nice. Asked if they had any other rooms available & was told they had some closer to the pool but that was all... More

We stayed only over night but it was a wonderful visit. Office staff and maintenance staff are very friendly. Condos are clean. Pool is clean. Grounds are well maintained. Nice sandy area by the ocean. We will stay here again and recommend it to others.
