Great place to enjoy the sound of surf

The unit is not new but is very well kept and allow you to feel at home immediately. It is a daily destination rather than a starting point. If you want a place to relax, read, talk and enjoy the view in a quiet surrounding then this is the place.

We enjoyed our stay

Posted May 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
I've stayed here before and I loved it. We enjoyed our stay here once again only thing was that the internet was very slow and our bed was a little uncomfortable. Other than that was amazing and would def stay there again.

A wonderful experience

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Location and view of the pool and beach. Roomy and very clean.
Cons: Not a thing.
Our first trip to the Big Island. We were so lucky to have selected Aston Kona by the Sea. It had everything we needed. The view from our unit #119 was terrific. Staff and concierge were helpful and congenial. Covered parking was readily available and free. A nice location with a number of restaurants close by.

Clean and Comfortable

Posted May 12, 2014
We enjoyed the quietness of the complex. Our room unfortunately was directly below the AC units that sit on the roof; so that at night they would wake us up when they when on. The unit was OK, in the past we have had much better ones in this complex. This unit gave us the great ocean view we wanted.

A nice stay

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Only stayed there one night. It is very next to the ocean without beach though. The hotel itself had a man-made beach to make it up. The ocean view is good, the surrounding is quiet. Only 2 miles to the town to get any food. The staff is very helpful, there is a DVD rental on site which is good to keep kids occupied at night. The room is clean and ample. Overall it is a nice hotel to stay.

All the comforts of home with an ocean view

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: It's atmosphere and accommodations
Cons: More ceiling fans in the rooms
Location: It is a mile and a half from the action for those who want to walk it
This is the second time that we have stayed at Kona by the Sea and plan to return more times. The location is excellent and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. It is a good family place to stay while Kona. We used to live in Kona and are with the facilities there.

Ok hotel

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: View
Cons: Conditions of room and service
Location: Too far to walk to Kona, but not too far to drive. Close enough to drive to some beaches but not to walk.
Hotel had a nice view and was comfortable, but staff were not friendly. Also dishwasher, garbage disposal and toilet were broken in room. When I reported this they just said "okay, thanks for letting us know." Nothing was fixed and no discount was offered. Additional "fee" that I was unaware of were charged to us and hotel was not within walking distance (hence the cheaper rate). But it did have a nice look out onto ocean (no beach).

Great hotel next to the ocean.

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: Nice staff. Safety. Quiet. Wonderful housekeeping.
Cons: A little cleaner?
Location: Snorkel beach, shopping.
Wonderful stay, great hotel with simple accommodations. Perfect for families. The hotel staff were super, very friendly. I wish the pool was a little bigger and that it was a swim beach.
