This place is AMAZING! Sarah was just terrific and found us a stunning condo with an absolutely jaw dropping view! We walked into this gorgeous condo, went to the balcony and literally the whole family dropped their bags and stared in disbelief! The ocean was literally right in front of our balcony complete with the top surfers on the island... More

We arrived here for a one night stay from a resort down the road. Aston Kona had previously been booked by our travel agent. Accomodation was very basic and not what we had been expecting. We were on the 4th floor and elevators were broken. We asked the person on the front desk to call a taxi for us and... More

We have new hires that I will personally address calling a taxi for you instead of giving a number. We hope the elevator was not a great inconvenience. A one night stay is not long enough to truly...

After few terrible days in rental vacation home in Volcano in the middle of nowhere, tired by constant raining, this hotel was like a band-aid for our wounds... Quiet hotel by the ocean with a small beach (with green turtles), huge apartment with 2 bedrooms, big living room, fully equiped kitchen, 2,5 bathrooms, washer and dryer and big terrace. It... More

Lovely spot with nice pool and whirlpool. Our Two bedroom condo had great view of beach and ocean. Attached outdoor balcony was a wonderful spot for morning coffee while watching the serf roll in. Check in staff were very friendly and even found a bottle of red wine for us when we asked where we could buy wine.

We have lost count of the number of times that we have stayed at Kona by the Sea. It is refreshing to return to familiar surroundings, even if we are never sure which unit we will be assigned. We always request a 2BR ocean front for the added advantage of more room and a bedroom with an ocean view. Like... More

Unfortunately you are correct we cannot guarantee a particular unit but we will do our best to make sure we find one you will like. Diversity does make it possible to make a home away from home.

We arrived late at the airport and easily found our way here in the dark. The friendly security guard gave us our temporary key, we found a readily available luggage cart, and trekked up the elevator to our room, #217. It had a lovely, breezy, open concept, with large French doors opening from the master bedroom to the living room,... More

The best ocean front accommodation in Hawaii. My husband and I had room 107. It was clean and the supplies, such as laundry and dishwasher detergents were plenty. It was clean and quiet. We truly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 children ages 12 and 9 December 2014. We booked a 1 bedroom through Costco travel. Upon arrival we were told the 1 bedroom unit was unavailable, so we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom ocean view. We loved it! Our kids loved it. The pool area is very nice. Beautiful view.... More

We stayed for a week over Thanksgiving with two adults and two kids in a one bedroom ocean-front unit...#114. The unit was well equipped and furnished...not as deluxe as some, but with all the basics. The sofa-bed was missing a few springs, but I'm sure management will take care of that soon. The only drawback to the room layout was... More
