My wife and I arived on her birthday, and what a treat, they were kind enought to upgrade our room to an ocean view. Spent the new years holiday here and had a blast. The bartenders at the Sand Bar were very nice and friendly along with everybody. The Aloha Sprit lives at the Aston Islander. Now for the rooms: They were very comfortable, clean and safe, and for the dollar spent it was a bargin. I'm amazed at the comments about the Jolly Roger being closed and the bad rooms.
Restaurants at the Coconut Marketplace are well within walking distance and the food was great and reasonably priced. You may not have room service, but who wants to stay in your room when your in paradise! I know what it is - when you show up with an attitude and expect the staff to kiss your #%%, you get what you ask for. If I managed this place I would save the marginal rooms for these types of people.
Another plus, the Aston Islander has late checkout, and it's not until 8:00 p.m. This is great when your flight doesn't leave until 10:00 p.m.
We're ready to go back, and the first place we'll check into is the Aston Islander. The beach is right outside your room. If you want to have a great vacation and save money give the Aston Islander a call.

Despite what may be pictured on the web, this resort is very basic. The pool is very small and the grounds are limited. We were moderately happy with our stay. We stayed there for the first part of our honeymoon. We had requested a room with a king size bed. We were given two twins on the ground level. The bathtoom was cheep and the decor somewhat dirty. We had requested that our reservation request be honored. They did not honor that until our third night in the hotel.
The hotel staff was quite rude--- although I would be too given the number of guests who complained in a rather bitter and rude manner during the times we sought assistance at the desk. The third night they were able to change our room to an ocean front room on an upper floor.
IF you stay here, it is really worth the extra money to pay for ocean view on the upper levels. The hotel was convenient in that is was located across the street from a shopping center which offered a variety of dining and shopping options. Unless we were desperate to see the sun, we would never elect to stay here again. It's a fine basic hotel if you seek nothing more than that. If you want to stay at a resort-- look elsewhere. (We stayed the last five nights at the Marriott which were totally amazing and two nights at the Kokee Lodge which was great fun).

We just returned from our fourth stay at the Islander in the last 15 years. The place is just wonderful for our needs. We got oceanfront after getting a great deal on priceline.com. Anyone dissatisfied with the Islander is expecting much to much for their money. I just wish the Jolly Roger would re open.

We stayed here on our first trip to Kauai, we had an Ocean Front room that opened up to the beach, we could here the surf all night with the sliding glass door opened, or you could close the door and enjoy peace and quiet. Pool seemed a little cold, but it was okay. We loved it and would stay here again, very reasonable pricing. Good beach for sun bathing and wading with watersocks. Located next to the Coconut Market Place, an open mall with some fast food places and casual dining, also a small movie theatre. Plenty of parking.

I was expecting something out of a horror movie after reading some of the reviews(especially the Australian). We stayed in exactly the same room- 351. Yes there was a palm tree outside the window, but it did not obstruct 90% of the view. I have some gorgeous pictures of the sunrise taken from the balcony. The air conditioner did appear to leak, but I enjoyed the sound of the waves, so I never felt the need to turn it on.
As to the rocky beach--volcanic islands do tend to have rocks--all you had to do is go down the beach 100 feet and the swimming was fine. If you want fine sand, go to Waikiki(they shipped the sand in from California!). The staff was very helpful, recommending things to see andplaces to eat. Although we did not go in the pool or hot tub, the other guests seemed to enjoy them. They were always occupied. One added feature that wasn't mentioned was the proximity to the Coconut Marketplace. Great shopping and places to eat. We will definitely stay here again. For those that want 5* accomodations, I recommend Princeville on the North shore($450 a night!)
