Wonderful view of the sea from the lanai. Gardens and beach area are well maintained every day. Convenient for town and market. Properties are individually owned so maintenance or lack thereof is up to the owner. Ours was very shabby, kitchen not particularly well stocked, older uncomfortable furniture, no decor to speak of.

Outside areas were well kept. Unit was dirty, with dirty walls, dirty carpet, and dirty heat/ac vents (I have photos). Old & rusty appliances in the kitchen. Bedroom was very dark with very little lighting. Unfortunately because of unit condition I would not recomend and would say don't go there.

We apologize for not meeting your expectations. Each unit is individually owned, they are all furnished differently. We appreciate your feedback, that way our Owners are notified about them too! We do offer a maintenance and housekeeping personnel on duty to fix any problem that may arise in the units. We hope one day you can give us a second chance.

Room space was huge and in excellent condition. Nice balcony with ocean view. Enjoyed pool and hot tub at night and laying by the beach during the day.

The property is gorgeous. The sea water pool just outside the hotel perimeter is a huge bonus; the sunsets remarkable Unfortunately we did not get the accommodations we paid for Travelocity really let us down

Beautiful and comfortable

We loved this place! Great location, beautiful furnishings. The kitchen had everything you needed. So convenient to have a washer and dryer in the room too. We were here during hurricane Lane and felt completely safe. Only draw back for myself and mother in law was the pillows were too big and fluffy, we both have neck problems and would have preferred a variety of pillow sizes with smaller ones for us but everyone else loved the pillows. Just north of the hotel from the road is a pathway that leads to a public pool built on the water that is filled by the ocean waves. Thus little spot is so gorgeous! It’s public property so not technically part of the hotel though it’s location is perfection. The staff here were so incredibly wonderful, they brought us extra coffee and a new light bulb and tape to wrap a gift and held our bags for us when we checked out until it was time for our flight. Wonderful service! Thank you all! I would happily stay here again and again.

Great Location, Staff, and View

Pros: Location, staff, size of room.
Cons: At some point the furniture and flooring will need to be updated but it's not horrible.
The Aston Kona was a great home base for my family and I on our first trip exploring the Big Island. I was traveling with my wife and two daughters (17 and 8) so having two beds and two baths was ideal. We stayed in condo 208 and had a wonderful view of the ocean with the waves crashing right outside of the lanai. The staff were all friendly and professional from the GM to the maintenance folks and housekeepers . We especially enjoyed the recommendations from our concierge person Dolly. We had some great food and adventures all over the Island following her advice. Perfect location in town, close to everything but not right in the center. We wish we were back there right now!

Pros: Great oceanfront location/view, apartment amenities, privacy, quiet
Cons: Nice vanity/sink area in the master bathroom area but, otherwise bathrooms could use some updating.
Location: Ideally located for making day-trips to places all along the west coast of the Big Island. Easy access to main roads and services.
This is a 2-building oceanfront property about 1.5 miles south of downtown Kailua-Kona -- just far enough from the hubbub of the busy tourist center but close enough for shopping. We had a lovely 2-bedroom/2-bath apartment with full kitchen, spacious living/dining area, and a large porch with incredible view. One of the best places we've stayed re Internet. They have a nice pool/spa area, fronted by a palm-shaded sandy area with lounge chairs. It was really nice not having a sandy beach with public access out front because we were able to enjoy an uninterrupted view and the wonderful (great for sleeping!) sound of waves. This is an "older" facility but it is up-to-date and very well maintained. Even though it's located on the busy main shore road, you can't hear traffic when you're in the very solidly-built, well-insulated building. The apartment has a very good AC system, but we liked living with the sliders open. The staff is very good. We discovered a leaking sink upon check-in -- maintenance arrived to fix it within 5 minutes of our calling the front desk. Washer/dryer. Parking outside + under the two buildings; apartments accessible by elevator. Key access to buildings/grounds, which is nice for security/peace of mind. Plenty of closet space with loads of hangers.

Hotel on the beach

Excellent service, great location best of all has pool and private beach with facilities for Barbecue. Nothing like hearing the soothing ocean waves from your suite and ocean view.
