Aston Waikoloa Colony Villas
- What's Included
The location is the Waikoloa Village where many large hotels and condos sit around a shopping mall and an artificial lake, close to one of the nicest beaches on the Big Island and lots of golf courses. Our villa had a large living room with a kitchen, a bathroom and a small terrace. Upstairs are the bedroom with a balcony and the master bathroom. Washer and dryer are also available. Everything was reasonably clean but not in pristine condition, especially the stove must have endured some minor chefs before.There are a tennis court and two smallish pools available to guests. Since we were there at the busiest time of the year, there were not enough chairs available, one morning the pool was completely closed for no apparent reason.During our stay of eight nights there was no housekeeping at all. Nevertheless, they charge a daily resort fee of about $10 and a cleaning fee of $260.
We stayed here in November. The dishwasher did not work. Had to complain multiple times. Was reassured that someone will take care of dishes.. but came at night to dirty dishes and had to do them to cook. Finally, they said that it will need to be replaced, day 4/4 of our stay. They waived the cleaning and resort fee... but that does not make up for a bad experience. Carpet and couch covers were stained. The comforters and pillows smelled unclean. Will never stay here again.
We spent a week here. Great place. Very quiet, so not for the younger set. Pool and hot tub were great. Everything was clean and well organized. Unit was very nice, probably going to need carpets fairly soon, but really very nice.
After a 26 year hiatus from visiting the Big Island, my wife and I were excited to return. We booked our flights, hotel and car rental through Costco, so the price was a good value, overall.The Aston Waikoloa Colony Villas appear to be owned by private parties and then rented out to visitors when the owners are not using them. Aston is the management company and they handled all of our arrangements when we arrived. The condos are well appointed and fully furnished. Depending on the owner (I suspect) they may also come with a couple of beach chairs, boogie boards and other beach accessories. There are beach towels available to use (I counted 8) during the week.The kitchen is nicely appointed with just about anything you'll need during your stay. Television and game consoles also came with our condo. The location is good, walking distance from two shopping centers which include restaurants (from food court fare to fine dining), grocery, clothing and gift boutiques, and a soon-to-open movie theater. Views from your lanai are mostly golf course and other buildings, but not unpleasant. The lanais are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were also spacious and everything worked fine. If you need to re-stock toilet paper, towels and other similar items, a quick call to the management company will result in someone bringing to your door in short order.I'd give the Villas a 5 if it were for a few things: You will need a car if you want to go to the beach...it's a bit far to actually walk...and we like to walk! It wasn't clear from the ads that this was the case and in fact, was a bit misleading in that regard. Read the ad copy CAREFULLY. The furniture was fine, but the sofas were a bit uncomfortable, likely due to frequent use. The carpet was also in need of replacement...again, frequent use and some staining.Also of note: The gym and pool were unavailable for several days during our stay. I certainly understand that this is a transitory problem as both were undergoing renovation. As a result, the small gym has all new resistance training equipment...very nice!Not sure if we would return to the property on our next visit. The beach access issue is a pretty big one. That said, good value for what you get...just be advised.
The villas are clean and spacious. When you stay here, you will have a private home. As opposed to vacationing with a bunch of strangers lumped together in hotel lobbies and hallways waiting for an elevator. Unless, that is what you like. I love the private balcony off the master bedroom. As for the Lava fields surrounding the area, I have to say that they don't bother me. It's so strange, it's wonderful. I've been relating it to dark chocolate brownies. Who doesn't love brownies? 😊
