We booked our vacation through a travel agent and were promised and paid for an oceanfront condo with our package. When we arrived our unit was the one of the ones facing sideways, so our oceanfront condo was actually a view of the real oceanfront condos lanai's (the true oceanfront condos) and the other properties going down the coastline.

Aloha, and thank you for your comments. We’re sorry you feel the unit you were in was not an ocean front view. We have posted a picture of the view from unit 120 located in the website section on the right, click on photos then all photos choose the management photos category. Much like unit 120, we have an assortment... More

Arrived on Wednesday, planned on BBQ on Friday, but BBQ area taken over by a party, apparently there was a Wedding the next day. We were never advised that there would be a wedding during our stay. On Saturday, the entire public area was under construction for the upcoming event in the evening. We were out until 5:30, but when... More

I am happy that we were able to resolve any misunderstanding of our Wedding event held over the weekend you were here. Again we apologize and understand the confusion that our facilities seemed unavailable during the event. The preparations could have been seen as over whelming. Please be assured all facilities were available before and during the wedding. I appreciate... More

My husband and I and our two teenagers (boy and girl) stayed in a two-bedroom condo unit here for a week in late July 2010. We liked everything about the place. It's quiet, clean, modern, comfortable, very spacious. The property is on the ocean -- rocky lava at the water's edge, just below the sea wall from the property's pool/courtyard.... More

Exactly what we were looking for...Ocean front condo, clean, friendly, maid service, and great location. Sitting on our lanai, having coffee, and watching the surfers was awsome. We stayed in #307, 1bdrm-2bath, that was in a great location. Asia, which is one of the tour planners there, was so nice and helpful. The Paradise helicopter flight was expensive, but worth... More

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we were quite satisfied with our stay at Kona By The Sea. It was well worth the cost and very convenient for any sight seeing tours you wanted to do on your own. Make sure you rent a car at the airport. If there was a problem, it was that you could... More

Wonderful and met every expectation we had. Close to Kona town and could walk if you want. Close to snorkling just south of us by 2-3 miles. Kona had home town parade on July 4th, and it was fantastic. The condo had grills outside to do outdoor cooking and several families took advantage of this as we did. Nice pool... More

I booked this room over the web, checking tripadvisor ratings, and the Aston web page; not real sure what I was getting for the money. We arrived late after a long flight and the desk manager was pleasant and helpful; I'm sure she'd seen it before. There were six of us in a two bedroom, two on the pull out,... More

I love this place. We were on our first anniversary of marriage and mentioned it to the desk clerk. When we arrived at the condo, we discovered that we had been upgraded to a two bedroom, two bath room at no extra charge. The room was so perfect.
