This is our 4th trip to Kauai and our first stay at the Aston Islander on the Beach. Our visit was 6 days, and this was our first time to stay in the Kapaa area. We arrived late in the evening and parking was a bit of a challenge due to the limited spaces, but check in was fast and... More

A very quite and romantic place on the island to just relax and take it easy. Near Kapaa and Lihui which has every thing you could need, clean comfortable rooms at a reasonable rate. We had the ocean view rooms which were stunning! PLUS no noisy AC unit, these are upgraded to the two unit AC systems, inside and out,... More

First of all, I booked this hotel through onhotels.com and there was no warning of the construction taking place on the booking website. So I got a shock when we arrived to jack hammering and very loud noise. This is my ONLY annual vacation. I have got a 5 year old, so the plan was to stay by the pool... More

My wife and I booked a one week stay at Aston Islander on the Beach and utilized their package pricing (room, flight & car rental). We absolutely loved the place - so much so we have since purchased unit #268 and look forward to our next trip to Kapa'a. We appreciated the friendly staff that work under guidance from Kaniela...

Stayed here many times. Nothing amazing but has what you need. Rooms are average. But clean. Pools are nice. Movie rental machine available. Service just ok could have been much more friendly. Unless you have rented a car it's not very close to stores but there are always buses for that. Outdoor grills and seating are a nice touch for... More

We stayed at the Aston 7/19-7/26. This was our first time in Hawaii and we will definitely be back and stay at the Aston Islander on the Beach again. The front desk was very helpful in providing information as well as the bar tender that worked by the pool. Our room was nice and very close to the beach. The... More

Despite the ongoing renovations which caused a fair amount of noise during the day, we loved our third visit here, especially as the beach, pool and barbeque areas were never crowded or noisy and very relaxed.The hotel is only 3 levels (no elevator unfortunately) which makes it far less like a tourist hotel. Like others, we learned to specify an... More

I should clarify up front that my reservation isn't until September 2014; however I am so frustrated with my experience so far that I needed to vent. I am trying to celebrate my 5 year wedding anniversary with my wife. We booked our trip for September 18 -25 2014. When booking the trip through a separate online vendor, I selected... More

I booked (and paid extra for) an Ocean Front room (not Ocean View). My room was RM363 and although the balcony does look parallel to the beach, it DOES NOT face the ocean. That room, in my opinion, is Ocean View. Although I have heard that this resort classifies an ocean view room quite loosely as well, meaning you can... More
