We stayed at this property for three nights in March. The front desk staff upon arrival and departure were very helpful and very nice. We stayed in a one bedroom one and half bath part ocean view condo. Unit 121. It was very clean and nicely appointed with comfortable furniture. The kitchen was stocked with everything that one would need...

This little hidden gem on the water in Kona was stunning. It was clean and spacious with a beautiful lanai overlooking the water. The sound of the crashing waves was inspiring. The staff were friendly and helpful. I definitely can't wait to revisit.

Our travel agent set us up for 3 nights. The 2 bed 2 bath condo was elegant and clean. The view of the pool and ocean were amazing. Also the concierge was very knowledgeable, She sent us on a beautiful drive up thru Wiamea to the Pololu Valley Lookout. Absolutely Stunning drive.

This small condominium is a wonderful place to stay. Right on the ocean, swimming pool and absolutely spotless on all accounts. The condo that we had was beautifully furnished with decor of the Pacific which added to the moment. Under cover parking at no charge is always a pleasure in Hawaii not because of the cost but your vehicle is...

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...
