Hotel is far from new, but I believe it's been remodeled fairly recently and, aside from the architecture, did not have an old feel. We arrived in late afternoon,and stayed just one night, before flying out of Kona, so the lack of a good sand beach didn't bother us. The views were very nice, especially when we saw two Manta Rays from, appropriately enough, the outdoor lounge sseats at Ray's restaurant in the evening (plenty of lights from the hotel, and from divers and kayakers looking for rays). The room was fine. Nothing special. Had problems with WiFi, but with the help of the Internet service tech I was told to call, I reconnected the modem. Largely outdoor corridors, both for the rooms and at the lobby levels (note the lobby and restaurants and bars and shops occupy more than one level, and knowing what button to push on the elevator can be tough). Ray's was not inexpensive, but the food, especially grilled fish, was very good.
You do really need a car to get anyplace outisde of the hotel. If you don't have a car, and/or want easy access to good sand beaches, you may want to stay "in town." We got a good deal on an ocean view (not ocean front; actual sea was a ways from our room) through the American Airines Web site, but did not feel we were slighted at all for not booking directly through Sheraton.
