Aston Kona by the Sea
- What's Included
2 bdrm Oceanfront condo AMAZING views! Very quiet & plenty of chairs at pool/beach for all. Granite throughout, very clean, washer/dryer, 2 bath, 2 bedroom. Kitchen with all the amenities. Ate most meals on the lanai & happy to stay in. Interested in grilling they had a few grills next to the pool along the beach that looked like they had just been redone with granite counters. I saw plenty of people using them and eating at the tables provided on the beach area. Will be back to this property! South of the airport with a trolley service to downtown. Convenient location for markets, a few restaurants and gas stations (for the within 10 mile fill up radius).
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 town.
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. We had only stayed one night when we got a call explaining that the owners were coming to visit and had requested their unit. We were offered and accepted a two bedroom ocean front with an even better view. The office was so apologetic and offered to have housekeeping do the entire changeover. We told them that was not necessary and had our belongings moved within an hour. It just took a short time to get reorganized and then Vacation relaxation really took over! Gladys in housekeeping was so sweet and always had our unit shining. The ladies in reception were so accommodating and eager to help with everything. The Expedia help desk got us a last minute tour to the Volcano. All in all it was the perfect vacation. Just so sorry it was so short. We will go back and recommend this property to everyone. We have also stayed at the Aston Shores at Waikaloa 3 years ago. Another great Aston resort. By the way ...don't forget to meet The resident Duck that stays by the pool area.
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 and dirty. THERE ARE TWO ROOMS PER CONDO BUT ONLY ONE FACES THE OCEAN, the other room faces a parking lot. When we called the hotel to verify the room location they said that both rooms had ocean view. (Do not pre pay) Room service is charged everyday wether you use it or not. There is a concierge service in the hotel that you can ask about places of interest. The list given only had one good restaurant, the rest must have paid to be put on the list is our best guess. Bring a good travel book, I think this would be your best bet. The views are fantastic and the salt pool is very unique. The salt pool is public with no access from the hotel.
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 before. So it was a win-win. The staff - I cannot say enough about how friendly and helpful they are. We needed a light fixed and within hours not one, but three maintenance men came up to make sure it was working ok. And the manager Sara, what a great representation of the island she sets : friendly, welcoming, and so sweet . Once you get used to staying in condos, I think it is hard to go back to staying in a hotel room but out of curiosity we priced some out. Most of the hotel rooms in the area were the same price if not more and it was just so nice to have that full kitchen and extra bathroom. ( not to mention great clean pool, free DVD rentals, and free parking ). Thank you Sara, Mike ,and the rest of your team for a wonderful honeymoon/vacation we will definitely recommend you to anyone heading there !!!
