I was really excited to come here and celebrate my husband's milestone birthday! We came from Honolulu from a spectacular hotel! Unfortunately I couldnt' say the same for Aston Kona by the Sea. For the price that we paid for - it was VERY outdated - something from the 80s. I learned that some units are updated and most are not - they are ALL individually owned. Hardly any lights - dimmed, faucets are old and barely turning, Painting is scuffed up - The tubs were rusty and the second bathroom did not work at all. ALL IN ALL - I would probably have spent that kind of money on another hotel that was more up to date. WORST of all is at night - there's all kinds of roaches roaming around the facility!!! :(. The texting system worked great - when they had asked if we were celebrating anything - I responded but nothing special was done or anything so why even text and ask? Hope this helps some people make a decision when booking.

We have always enjoyed staying with Aston. This was our third trip to the Kona property. We love the privacy and view. Only issue with this stay was we were NOT given an oceanfront room which we reserved. Instead, we were given a tired room with only partial view. The hotel tried to correct most of our issues, however we believe we should have been refunded some of our cost since we had to stay in a cheaper room.

We loved The Aston Kona by the Sea. We had a very spacious, clean room with a great view of the sunsets. We could leave our sliding glass doors open to hear the waves crashing all night long. We also felt very safe there as the security was walking around night and day. Very conveniently located just south of Kona with some great beaches to the south of the Hotel. We did move on to the Mauna Lani Resort later in the week and liked our Aston Room much better.

Had a fun week in Kona and was pleased with our accommodations at Aston KBS. The oceanfront location and sunset views were wonderful. The warm swimming pool & hot tub were greatly appreciated and enjoyed after a day of exploring. The resort is peaceful and the rooms are quiet. Get a 2-bed unit if you want the master near the lanai. The 1-bed unit has master near outside hallway so no view of ocean. Loved listening to the waves break on rocks at night. Highly recommend LaBourgogne, delicious French restaurant. ‘Da Best’ Mai Tai at Jackie Ray’s and sunset view at Don’s Mai Tai bar (the fish tacos are yummy too).

We were assigned Unit 208 at Kona by the Sea. The unit was dilapidated and unkempt. The carpet was stained and needs replacement. The walls had peeling and stained paint. The door to washer/dryer was falling off. The sliding screen door is rusted and does not stay on the rails. The property itself is well kept and lovely but this unit is not. The location is ocean front and it is relaxing to listen to the waves on the lanai. Since the units are individually owned, the quality of the units can vary greatly it seems. I guess we were unlucky this time. I do not think this unit should be rented out until it meets a higher standard. I suggest that the units be inspected annually by the management team.
