We booked a 1 bdrm "ocean view" room on a higher floor, we were pleasantly surprised, couldn't tell difference from ocean front, the view was georgeous! Kitchen was recently updated & fully stocked with everything we needed (and more). Suite also came with beach chairs,beach towels and boogie boards as well. Location was great, near all major points of interest... More

We had a wonderful weeks stay. Convenient location, quiet, friendly staff and covered parking. More like staying at home than in a hotel. The concierge is available to orient you to activities on the island and book reservations, if desired.

Just outside all the crowded streets in tourist-laden Kona, but still within a good 45- minute walk, this place is just right for sitting and relaxing. No pressure, hard to beat. It's obviously somebody's condo, but like a large hotel room (two full baths) with kitchen. Better than expected. Would return.

Many thanks for your kind review and for providing prospective guests with an overview of our location and atmosphere. As you surmised, all of our units are individually owned condominiums and, generally, no two are exactly alike. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and would visit us again - we hope you have that opportunity real soon. Mahalo. More

We booked a two bedroom two bath condo. It was really nice. Very clean and had daily maid service. They also delivered a paper every morning. The staff was very nice. They have a travel agent on site to help you with any tours and excursion. Not a very large complex. The pools were not very crowded and they had... More

My family of 5 fit nicely in this 2 bedroom 2 bath suite. See my attached photo for an idea of a typical sunset. Our suite was updated in the past few years so was reasonably up to date. Great to have a kitchen so we did not have to eat out for breakfast.

This was our first stay at Aston Kona by the Sea. I had read a lot of reviews prior so I was NOT expecting 5 star resort accommodations.

Partially re-modeled beautiful seaside property. We got upgraded from a 1-bedroom to a 2-bedroom without asking. This was fortuitous as our third person was going to have to sleep on the pull-out sofa and now he had his own room and bathroom. A very nice upgrade. The north side of underground parking lot and the property is a maze and... More

Stayed here during a trip around the Western States and Hawaii last month. An excellent place to stop and catch our breath, right on the seafront.

Everything Castle Kona Bali Kai is not, except no ocean access. The rooms are between good and excellent (we had three) and the staff was very helpful. 3 grills between the "beach" and the pool. Sometimes all were in use, but all the guests were friendly and shared if needed.
