This hotel was amazing! we had the ground floor Ocean Front room, and literally could walk out of our Lanai and be on the beach! The staff was friendly with lots of perks to the hotel e.g Free rentals, pool bar, free great lemonades, a gift certificate! I highly recommend this place. My husband and I loved it!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Kauai, staying 16 nights at the Aston Islander. It was a good central location for either driving to the north or to the south/west and only about 10-15 minutes from the airport. The grounds/gardens were lovely and well maintained. We booked and paid for an Ocean View room, but were...

Location is why we chose this place, we rented a car and toured from there, north and south were both good. What we liked about here was that there was a coffee shop close by and a great place to watch the sun come up with it. Front desk service was not always the best but the concierge was very...

Not the greatest, not the worst! Starting with the positive things: The staff was friendly and dealt with any issues quickly and effectively. There were signs warning of the currents but we found that you could snorkel up to 20 yards out with no issues. The Kilauea Fish Market is a great little restaurant with wonderful tacos and is located...

The location of the resort is decent as it's in town close to lots of restaurants and shops. But that's the only upside. After you check in you find out there is a $20 'amenity fee' PER DAY. This is for internet, coffee in the room and some other 'amenities' like DVD rentals. This should be built into the price...

I booked through owner of the unit directly rather than the hotel so I am only commenting on the site not all the hotel amenities.

So we chose the Aston Islander based on the reviews of a quiet, clean, and off the beaten path place to relax and explore Kauai. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and informative. The resort grounds were immaculate. The ocean front rooms were large, comfortable, clean, and relaxing. I would be giving this resort a 5 star rating...
