Aston Kona by the Sea
- What's Included
Stayed here for 10 nights there are not many places you can stay that is so close to the ocean had an oceanfront room 106 while the decor is dated it's great for a family especially with teens a separate room and a lot of living space. Great sized Kitchen everything you need. Didn't need beach towels they supplied those that was great. The pool is good and so is the spa. Even saw a turtle right from our balcony in the water. The lady to help book tours is very informative. Would recommend this is you want a comfortable place by the ocean it's not the Ritz but who cares the sound of the ocean at night is awesome.
I am writing this review so that some other poor couple does not get lumped with the room that is 116. We stayed at another Aston chain hotel in Maui and hoped we would have the same great experience. Unfortunately we we're gob smacked by the blatant disregard for upkeep for this room. The smell was stale and chemical which gave us headaches after being in the room for only 15 minutes, the dust was noticeable, the shower had mould on the taps and faucets and the bed had a stain on it that was noticed immediately and informed the manager. Also the room was meant to be partial ocean view which we paid good money for, the partial ocean being craning my head around a corner to see it. After house keeping came to fix the linen she proceeded to argue with us that it was not a stain. I'm sorry but any white doona cover that does not look all completely white with a big wet patch looking spot in the middle is a stain, i don't care what it actually is.Being pretty disheartened we informed management that this room was unacceptable for the money we paid, to which he said he had no other rooms and couldn't move us. Our travel agent has made several complaints to the management since this time and they refuse to get back to her at all. I've read several reviews since saying how bad room 116 is and had the same experience with management not caring or getting back to them when complaints are made. I can only hope that this room is fixed so other travellers dont have the same experience.
Name recognition as we approached the front desk to check-in and they were prepared for our arrival. Very accommodating, the ocean view was good and you can hear the waves from your room. Parking always available and the walk to the room was short.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the units clean and inviting. Our favourite time is sunset every day, then falling asleep to the gentle sounds of the waves crashing on the shores. Fantastic place to stay for a family. Highly recommended.
We stayed at this property for three nights in March. The front desk staff upon arrival and departure were very helpful and very nice. We stayed in a one bedroom one and half bath part ocean view condo. Unit 121. It was very clean and nicely appointed with comfortable furniture. The kitchen was stocked with everything that one would need for their stay.It is only a ten minute drive from the main restaurants and stores of Kona and the Safeway is only about a 15 minutes drive also. The unit had a great view of the ocean, pool area and of the sunset. I would be very happy to stay here again.
