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.

Front desk employees are always professional and help you with a smile. The rooms are spacious and afforded a great ocean view. The beds were very comfortable. The pool area has lots of seating/lounges and is a relaxing place for all guests. The Aston is conveniently located on the main beach road in Kona.....close enough but far enough away from...

We visited Kona by the Sea from May 4-11th. I'm not sure why we haven't stayed there before. A great place with everything we needed. I booked a one bedroom Ocean Front. We were set up on the third floor and the condo was wonderful. It was ocean front but more of a side view with the sunsets behind us....

First room we were given was dark and had a brown carpet. The place smelled like a wet dog. We quickly requested another room and they were accommodating, the person behind the counter was not very friendly. The bathroom in the new room was dirty, there was broken glass on the balcony floor, and the table glass top was oily...

We loved this place and hope to come here again in the future. Stayed in room 211 for eight nights. My biggest concern with places is cleanliness- both bathrooms, the bed, and overall the condo was very clean which helped me enjoy my week there. My husband's biggest concern was the view- we've never stayed that close in an oceanfront...

Our family of four stayed here late March 2017. We had a two bedroom condo. I find that this is one of the harder reviews I've written. We'll start with the good. The view. The view from your room is spectacular. We made breakfast in our room every morning and ate it on the lanai looking at the water and...

I have been traveling to the Big Island about 2 or 3 times per year for the last 8 years or so. I was lucky to have stayed at Aston's Kona by the Sea on my 3rd trip and now would never consider staying anywhere else. The staff is great. Sarah and Melody are often there to greet you. The...
