Stayed here a while ago and absolutely loved it. The rates were reasonable so we opted for the ocean front room. It was huge! Great island decor an literally just steps from the water. There isn't a "beach" but there is a lagoon where you will see turtles and fish congregating and a nice sandy area to sun bathe. Friendly... More

We just returned from Kona and we stayed here for the first night we arrived. I wanted a location that was ocean front and not just view and we received just that. We stayed in room 101 and the view was amazing of the ocean. Even though it's the first floor, it's not ground level so you will be able... More

We stayed at the Aston Kona by the Sea for a full week and loved the entire time. Our room faced directly out onto the ocean and it was so close it sounded like the waves were right at our doorstep. The room was a condo-type room, so had everything that one might need, including a full kitchen with dishwasher,... More

If coming to Kona, you must stay at the Kona by the Sea. The modern decor with some original Hawaiian art, clean carpets, and great ocean front view of Room 323 is perfect for couples even though the sofa sleeper could accommodate 2 more easily. Relax in the chase lounge on the spacious balcony and watch the waves crash against... More

I loved staying here. Our room was amazing, clean and had an amazing view. I would stay here again and would recommend staying here for anyone. We just left on 6/17/14 and want to go back! If you are looking for a nice family friendly place, this is your place.

Stayed here with my husband and three kids for one night, but we honestly could have stayed a week. Great 2-bedroom oceanfront unit, worth the extra to upgrade. Beautiful view, wonderful freshwater pool, and great location. Expedia rep on site made it so much easier to book scuba trips and other excursions. Loved it, so tough to leave!

Our one bdrm oceanfront was upgraded to a two bdrm and what a delight. We could watch surfers from the comfort of our balcony. Nights were spent in the hot tub listening to the surf. The hotel is a skip and a hop to downtown and to favorite snorkeling sites. This is truly a gem.

Our stay here was wonderful. Our oceanfront condo not only had the perfect view of the ocean, it had everything we needed to cook a meal there. If you want to do laundry while on vacation it also had a washer & dryer. It's not far to all the shopping & restaurants. Was the perfect place for us!

We stayed 5 nights, using it as our base from which to explore the big island. The suite was well equipped. The decor leans bit toward the 70s but was fine. The balcony is a generous size, room for a table, chairs and a chaise. Easy to enjoy breakfast out on the balcony. The view was excellent and the property... More

We booked 2 suites for our last trip, a one bedroom partial ocean view and a 2 bedroom ocean front suite. The extra cost for the ocean front unit was well worth the money - dinning at the balcony and watch the sun goes down. This vacation condo is well kept for its age and managed by a wonderful group...
