Just returned from our stay on the Big Island. Absolutely loved our stay at Aston Kona by the Sea. Be sure to request an ocean front condo and you will be thrilled with the view and the sound of the surf. The lanai was spacious and a wonderful place to spend time.

Quiet place to stay unless you don't like the sound of crashing waves putting you to sleep at night. Spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Great beach/pool area to view the sunset and local surfers. Not within walking distance from shopping, but I believe their is a shuttle type bus. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Aloha, Two of our managers met with this guest and tried to identify any smell but really did not smell anything. We offered to move the guest to another room but they said they would stay. Any guest with a problem should call the front desk immediately so we can resolve it. Kona by the Sea carries the Trip Advisor...

We enjoyed this place tremendously. The condo was clean and beautiful. We had a car and enjoyed the farmers markets, coffee plantations, beaches and more. We cooked 80% of our meals in a well stocked kitchen. Sea turtles where 50' from our balcony. We would stay here again without a doubt if we choose this side of the island again....

Stayed here during the final week of our one month tour of Hawaii. This is a condo complex, so each unit is individually owned, but it is operated more like a hotel than a condo. The staff are very helpful, and accommodating. There are 86 units, with approximately 65 in the rental pool, approx 30% have two bedrooms, the rest...

We stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath apartment with side views of the ocean, and i could not fault the complex or our apartment. It was clean, neat and updated inside and out. Being on the side i was a bit worried about ocean views but i couldn't believe what a wonderful view of the ocean we had. The...

We are a family of five,including three teens. Teens go to bedlam and it doesn't help at bedtime when the doors separating the master bedroom from the living area, is a louvred sliding door. Louvre doors let in a lot of sound and light. Our toilet had to be fixed twice...blocked and wouldn't flush....yuck. The best thing about this place...

If you are looking for a place that is very chill that is also near town this is your place. There is no beach but there is a sandy area right on the water. The grounds sit on the ocean and the views are great! There is a nice pool area and some barbecues on the beach to use. The...

The one star is for the nice paintings on the walls. Otherwise, the property stinks…literally! My room smelled like wet dog and urine. It was horrible and unpleasant. We were hoping that by opening the glass door and having the fans on, the odor would leave. The first couple of days we were traveling with our friends and came back...

Rented a 2 bedroom oceanfront condo. It had all the facilities like kitchenette, washer+dryer and air conditioning. You can see the sunset right from your room! This property has a great swimming pool too. Since it is located on Alii Drive, all the activities are just around the corner. There is also a shopping marketplace closeby (shaved ice, coconut water,...

We had booked a one bedroom suite but got the 2 bedroom which meant it was huge. Had full kitchen facilities, 2 bathrooms, big dining and living area with comfy couches and a television. We found it very helpful having the washer and dryer as we were halfway through our trip and were in need of some laundry facilities. Did...
