Aston Waikoloa Colony Villas
- What's Included
On a budget, we went on Hotwire and booked a 3.5 * 1 bedroom condo in Waikoloa for $108/night. We got the Colony Villas. I called them to confirm our reservation and to make a few requests… close to pool, assigned parking spot and possible upgrade to a 2 bedroom condo. Check in was seamless and all requests were honored (including upgrade). Registration staff was full of Aloha – really wonderful people. They gave us the 2 bedroom upgrade for 25$/night! Because of the varied reviews on TA, our expectations were not high, but first impressions were very very good. We entered our condo (2301) and found a HUGE (1700 sq feet) 2 story condo. 2 lanais, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen with dining area and bar. The condo also included a stacked washer and dryer with detergent and dryer sheets. In the closets were beach chairs, noodles, and other beach goodies. My family loved staying here. The location was next to Hali’I Kai (where we picked up the Ala Kahakai Trail), and short drive to Lava Lava, Anaeho’omalu Bay and the Kings Shops. During our stay the resort was very quiet and we only saw a few families at the pool, or grilling at the BBQs. During check out I noticed a cleaning fee added to our bill. I asked about it because there was no mention of additional cleaning fee in our Hotwire contract. I showed the contract/receipt to the staff and all was well. We had a wonderful experience at the Colony Villas and would recommend the condo to everyone wanting a spacious condo, quiet surroundings and attentive staff.
We booked a condo at the Aston Colony Villas at Waikoloa through Costco tours. The unit was comfortable and very spacious and appeared to be clean. However, starting on our third night we experienced an unnerving bug infestation. On two consecutive nights there bugs running around the kitchen counters, cupboards and floor. We killed at least a dozen of the little bastards on the counters one night. This forced us to keep all of our food (including the Cheerios) in the refrigerator.After being notified the condo management was quite responsive. I think they may have sprayed some pesticide because after that we only found another five or six bugs. Without being asked to do so they refunded the standard cleaning deposit and daily resort fee, which we appreciated.Overall I'm giving this property a neutral rating. The responsive management and spacious condo served to counterbalance the herd of bugs to some extent. We'll try someplace else next time, however.
These condos are well located and priced and actually worked well for our family. Unfortunately the unit we were in, # 802, was one of the not so great ones. The carpets were filthy and there was mold in the bathrooms among other things. Because there seems to be a variable in the quality of the individual condos I do not think we would take the risk and choose to stay at the Waikoloa Colony Villas again.I would recommend Aston management upgrade the minimum cleanliness and quality standards for the units they rent so everyone can have the experience so many other reviewers have talked about.
Our first time visiting the Big Island... The Villa we stayed in was beautiful, fully equipped for a home like feeling. The views from the property were beautiful, overlooking a golf course which my partner very much enjoyed. The Villas are situated in a closed off gated area with shops and restaurants being a fair distant away meaning a longer walk than usual. Would recommend hiring a car to get to destinations to and from the Villas.
We stayed in unit 2401 for a cost of $130 a night (plus tax, cleaning and VRBO fee). For the price the unit is great, very roomy and comfortable beds.The carpet in the unit needs to be cleaned and the kitchen is no well stocked in terms of silverware, pots and pans, etc. The ceiling fan in the second bedroom needs to be adjusted, running it on anything other than low results in a balance problem.The value of the rental is high enough that we are renting the unit again next year.
