Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wished we could have stayed longer! We stayed in a two bedroom for our last night in Kona after being in Volcano. We were able to check in a little early just in time to enjoy the amazing view for our last afternoon. We had a two bedroom and it was huge! The balcony view was perfect. Hope to come back and stay here again some day. Super easy drive to downtown Kona for dinner and shopping.

Property's Favourite Review
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).

The best stay we had in Hawaii! Celebrated our 32nd anniversary/ The condo unit was centrally located and everything we needed was there. The facility has its own beach area and the maintenance people kept the beach and bbq area very very clean. The value for this condo unit was excellent. We will be back. :)

The location is a short 5-8 minutes from downtown Kona. The complex grounds are very well maintained and there is garage parking that we were able to use for our full 2 week stay. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. We had a 1 bedroom ocean view unit that had plenty of room. Though the furnishings were a little tired and dated, everything was very clean and comfortable which was most important. The kitchen has everything you need so we ate in for breakfast and sometimes lunch. They also have several grills that you can use if you like. A very nice sandy area with beach loungers and umbrellas just off the pool area provides a relaxing time by the ocean. Highly recommend this facility for a relaxing stay.

This is listed to be a 4 star hotel - I have no idea how. We reserved an ocean front room for 5 adults. The condo was extremely dated (which would not in itself be an issue) with musty, stained carpeting, a dirty bathroom (toothpaste on faucet and dirty stained toilet), shower heads at a height of 5 feet, a broken pull out couch (which was for the 5th adult) with an out of order sign and a HUGE cockroach. When I advised the front desk that the pull out had a sign in it that indicated it was out of order, we were offered another 2 bedroom unit that was to be fumigated during our stay. We chose to avoid the chemicals and were offered instead a blow up mattress. We did not receive any discount for this inconvenience. The hotel advised all guests that housekeeping would not enter occupied rooms due to covid! During our 15 night stay at 5 different condo/hotels on 3 islands this was the only hotel to deny housekeeping. Clearly using covid as a cost-cutting measure. The positives: the view and the ground of the hotel are beautiful and well-maintained, and the beds are decent. I would strongly discourage people from staying at this hotel until they update the rooms. They were gross and not properly cleaned.

It has its own beach area but I don’t think you can swim there since lava rock and wave. But great view from room. Room is big and has kitchen so you can cook your own meals. Also, inside of room has a washer and dryer so you can wash your clothes when you need. Next time, I will stay here again.

Excellent experience at the Aston Kona! Would recommend to anyone. Clean, quiet, great location. We are very happy with our experience there! We had one small plumbing issue, but it was fixed within an hour of us bringing it to the attention of management. The only improvement would be a more secure internet connection. Great experience!!

Our unit was nicely appointed, had comfortable furniture with a great bed, was immaculately clean, had a beautiful view of the coast and pool area, and a well equipped kitchen. Also appreciated the washer/dryer. One night we used the gas grills and they were also immaculate. The pool area had plenty of furniture and it was pretty. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The WiFi was free with good connection and the TV had a decent range of channels. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
