Aston Kona by the Sea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

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 the rocks. The facilities are clean and nice and you are only 2 miles on Alii drive from all the oceanfront action. Free videos (we only tried one night to watch videos but couldn't figure out how to operate the DVD player), daily room service and pool and hot tub makes this condo an ideal relaxing place to stay

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.

Room Tip: Choose an ocean front

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 includes a pool, a barbecue area, and a beach with chairs, tables, umbrellas and lounge chairs, protected by a seawall The staff was very good. town.

The one negative is that the showers were installed at an unusually low height. We are both 5'8" and had to duck well down to get underneath the shower head. There was no hope of leaning back to put your face under the stream.

It's about a mile-and-a-half to the shops and restaurants of Kona and you can end up sitting in heavy traffic as there are only a few routes between the condo and town.

Some covered parking some outdoor parking—first come, first serve. There is a DVD rental machine in the check-in area and we received a card good for two free rentals. In addition to the Concierge there is a desk from which you can book activities and also sign up for a time share presentation.

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 of people; from the manager, front desk staff, to house and ground keepers. Pools are at the edge of ocean accompanied by a (miniature) beach, don't forget to bring your steaks and family to the poolside for a sunset BBQ.
