We have nothing bad to say about this place. We walked to eat every night, everything was comfortable and no hidden costs as we were told upfront about those. Enjoyed our time there. The pool was cold but we did not use it anyway. The had happy hour out by the pool, but we went sightseeing so did not take... More

I booked this "condotel" because the price was good for the location. I got an ocean front property and was completely satisfied. I stayed for a week and never had any problems. Some have complained about the $18 amenities fee, but many properties in Hawaii have such fees and this place was still cheaper than other places after the fees.... More

This hotel was quite nice with well kept rooms and friendly service from the staff. However we were not impressed with the sneaky extra charges. We paid a good price to book this hotel because we wanted somewhere nice on the beach. After booking and prepaying several months in advance it was a bit of rude shock to be told... More

If your looking for a nice, clean, relaxing low profile resort in a perfect location, you won't go wrong with the Islander. Staff is friendly and efficient, resort is perfectly located for travel to the north and south shores. Also within walking distance to decent restaurants and shopping. If your looking for laid back "old Hawaii" this is it!

We stayed here for two nights in December. We really enjoyed the comfortable relaxed atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't huge but, have everything we needed. The movie rental in the resort fee was nice. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We had never traveled to Hawaii before, but decided that we wanted to go somewhere quiet but with great natural attractions and while searching the Internet we stumbled upon the Aston Islander on the Beach. We've never stayed at a resort before but since it was the low season we found a room rate which fit our budget. When we... More

The site is neat and beautiful; right on the beach. The Islander may not be as fancy as some North or South shore resorts, but the friendly staff and location make it an ideal resort. About 45 minutes to either Poipu or Hanalei cuts down on travel time and the drives are scenic. Good restaurants within walking distance or a... More

Paradise, Paradise and Paradise. What a GREAT place to stay.. perfectly located, central to everything on island and VERY affordable. Still pinching myself of how great Kauai deals are as everything on Maui was expensive if you want a view. VIEWS ARE A MUST so stay in the ocean front. We booked with PacificCondosKauai and stayed in a unit on... More

The employees at this hotel were very accomodating. The room was clean and it was just what we needed for this trip. There wasn't much to do at the hotel, but there is so much to explore on Kauai that we didn't have much down time. The rooms are steps away from the beach and the sunrises are absolutely beautiful!... More

We stayed at the Aston Islander on the Beach in early December 2014. Pros: location is convenient to the airport and right in the middle of the attractions of Kuaui; staff are great; the coconut grove shops are a 2 minute walk. Cons: while we were there the hot tub was closed; the beach (pro) is not swimable due to... More
