My wife and I stayed in room 323 in January 2013 and the week at Kona by the sea was perfect. We had dinner each evening on our lanai overlooking the ocean,( no restaurant could provide that view) watched pods of whales swim by, (one actually breached straight up into the air) and enjoyed the manta ray dive with the...

Our third time at Kona by the Sea over the last ten years. The renovations were noticeable. We stayed in unit 206 (2 bedroom-2 bath). Ocean-front; great view; nicely appointed. We like the flexibility of staying in and cooking for ourselves so the BBQs are a great asset. The staff was helpful, but not overbearing. Anything we asked for, we...

Aston Kona by the Sea is a very nice property right on the ocean (but with no beach) with a westerly view for beautiful sunsets. There is a nice pool with hottub. This is a quite, laid back place not for the partying crowd. There is not restaurant on premises nor even a little store for knick knacks and necessities....

Our condo had an amazing view!! I worried that because it was a very large complex, it would be noisy and crowded but it was exactly the opposite and I do think it was fully booked. We were soothed to sleep with the sound of the waves and spent hours on the lanai, especially in the morning, enjoying the breathtaking...

Our 2nd time at Kona By The Sea and won't be our last. There is a quiet 'sparkle' about this place is that is restful, beautiful and perfect for us. Unit #107 (1bdr, 2bathroom) has been nicely renovated. We appreciate the 2 bathroom design, even for just 2 people. A salad spinner, and metal spatula/flipper would be great additions. There...

Lets start off by saying this is the first time I have ever paid more for an ocean front room. This place really made me regret it. We paid for a one bedroom oceanfront room. The place overbooked that and didn't tell us. We checked in and were told they were not ready. We had to wait hours to finally...
