HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Although the unit is a bit on the small side (it is really a hotel room) compared to, say a one bedroom unit, is it well equipped with good quality items, well organized and cleverly stored. Towels and linens are good quality and there are lots of extra towels. The bed was very comfortable with an assortment of pillows to...

Very nice base to explore the island, central to both directions. Lovely pool area, great bar/cafe next door. Not much "beach" as traditionally envisioned but great view of the water and loved listening to the waves every night.

Although we stayed in what they called a partial ocean view we could see the ocean from 3/4 of our balcony. The resort is quiet and the grounds well kept. We discovered after we got there (we had 26 in our group) that the units were owned by different persons as they didn't have all the same amenities inside ,...

Very family friendly spread of multiple three story buildings surrounded by large lawns and landscaping. You can get some sand and ocean time then rinse off and hit the pool. Pool is pretty small and not great for real little kids but there's a poolside bar and three communal gas grills. The unit we stayed in was clean and pretty...

We enjoyed the easy atmosphere at this resort. Very good service, clean and well kept grounds. Our room had a crumbling ceiling, water damage I guess, looked bad but was ok. Enjoyed being able to prepare our own meals (dishes provided) and use the BBQ as dining prices are high. Beds were very soft, took a week to not have...

Having first stayed here for 3 weeks in 1994, and having visited 6 times since, this once-charming property has become nothing more than a collection of condos. The Sand Bar, on the rare occasions it is open, is staffed by excellent people, but as far as the hotel management are concerned, is an inconvenient afterthought. There is little to no...

We decided on Kauai the garden island over the other islands because it was said to be the least commercialized, the best beaches, and a lay back attitude. Well every thing we heard was under stated this island is definitely one of the best places to visit. We stayed at the Aston Islander on the beach. Resort was very nice,...
