My husband and I stayed @ the Islander for our 3rd trip to Kauai in March 2011. We were very pleased with the location of the resort. There are 2 super markets within walking distance, as well as take out restaurants and a 5 star restaruant @ the resort right next door. Parking was definitely an issue during our stay... More

We stayed here in 2009 and enjoyed it so much that we returned for two weeks this year. Started with an Ocean View Room which had two coconut trees blocking our view. The staff upgraded us to an Occean Front Room in which we stayed for the duration of our tour. This Hotel has an excellent beach for sunning and... More

We really liked this resort, although we found it to be almost too quiet - but that may be the way everything is in Kauai. The rooms here were updated and extremely quiet. I didn't hear ANYTHING from any neighbors upstairs or down, and I am extremely picky in that arena - I am a very light sleeper, so was... More

We are just back from an enjoyable stay at the Aston Islander on the Beach.  After researching a variety of hotels and locations in Kauai, we decided on the Islander because of its central location, allowing easy exploration of the island.  We chose this hotel over the Kauai Beach Resort because there were shops and restaurants within a short walking...

We used this property only as a place to sleep. We did not use the pool, hot tub or the small pool bar. Beach is uninviting due to presence of driftwood, rocks and pounding surf. So, technically, there is a beach, but it is useful for sunbathing, not swimming. Guests looking for a more inviting beach should head to Poipu... More

Aloha & thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor. Yes, we are not a full service hotel nor a resort such as other properties on Kauai. We do afford a comfortable stay for guests wanting the traditional Hawaiian style property at a moderate price. Parking continues to be a problem that the Association of Apartment Owners Board of Directors... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Islander on the Beach. It looks just like a 5 star resort but at a budget price! The hotel grounds were beautifully manicured and the pool (not a resort-sized pool...but very refreshing) and hottub, were well cared for. The hotel consists of (mostly) individually owned condos that are rented out to vacationers through... More

So, we stayed here based on a recommendation. The rooms are clean, the view was definitely of the ocean, and -- while nearly everything else was too far to walk to -- it is located behind the Coconut Marketplace. The problems: 1. Not enough space in the parking lot for the guests. There are signs everywhere stating that only guests... More
