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

This was our second time at Aston Islander on the Beach. We had made reservations to stay in Poipu for a change, but, upon arrival there, we found our condo to be unsuitable and quickly scrambled to make reservations elsewhere for our five night stay. Because we'd stayed at Islander on the Beach previously, we tried there first and were... More

We stayed 2 weeks on this property and we enjoyed every moment here. We want to thank to Brad (the owner) for all useful information he provided during the rental process and for the very welcoming unit where we found anything we needed for a pleasant stay. The grounds are very well maintained and happily for us, the resort has... More

My husband and I stayed here July 5th through July 14th. We had a bottom floor room next to the stairs but it was so quiet you never heard people going up or down the stairs or in the room above you. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful... More

Overall I have no major issues with this hotel. They were doing construction but it didn't bother our stay in any way. The rooms were very clean and quite nice. The only issue I had is if you use priceline and pay for a trip you would think it covers everything once paid for,nope. At the end of our stay... More

This is a comfortable, quiet and well run hotel. We had a room right on the beach. It was well equipped and some self catering was possible (breakfast and lunch). The pool was well located and the grounds carefully tendered. We had been alerted by the hotel that they were re-roofing the main reception area, and this didn't interfere with... More
