For the cost it can't be beat but property is dated and rooms are small. It was nice to have a microwave and refrigerator in he room. The grounds are beautiful and well cared for. You can't swim on the hotel beach. Pool is small. Housekeeping left a lot to be desired. No restaurant on site. Front desk staff was...

This location is right in the middle of it all!!! Property is located just behind the Coconut Market Place on the Central East Coast of Kauai Island. It's a short drive to the north end, south & west ends of the island. The gorunds are maintained well. Jacuzzi & pool are nice & clean. This is a ground floor unit,...

I stayed at the Aston Islander for 4 nights on my honeymoon and was very happy there. The room we had was comfortable with an amazing view from a balcony overlooking the ocean and the hotel grounds are conveniently laid out with a nice hottub, pool and grilling area. If you have the time, you should consider making some of...

We stayed here for three nights and had a great time. We booked a room with partly ocean view, but I don't think a cheaper option would be a bad choice as the hotel is located in a nice garden. The room was allright and included an kitchen unit, we only used the fridge. We moved the kitchen-trashbin as it...

This is about my 15 time to stay at the Islander on the Beach and when on Kauai I would simply stay nowhere else.The location is about halfway between Waimea Canyon on the Westside and Ke'e Beach on the North Shore.The rooms are very clean and the grounds are landscaped daily and are immaculate.When you add in the extremely helpful...

So, because we booked before September 15th the dailt "resort fee of $10.00" was optional, because we choose not to pay it, they won't give us daily towel servce.....really??????

Aloha! I'm sorry it's taken me 2 weeks to get back to you on the service at islander on the Beach. The $10 amenity fee has nothing to do with daily maid service. All of our guests booked through Aston Hotels & Resorts get daily service which includes clean towels. If this was not the case, my sincere apologies. I...

I have only good things to stay about this hotel. The grounds are really lovely. It's right on the ocean, and a great spot for watching the sunrise (which is easier than you think to wake up for due to the time difference). The rooms are clean and bright, well-sized, comfortable beds, mini-fridge, basic dishes, coffee machine, microwave. Maid service...

My wife and I spent 11 nights here in early October. The location is good for activities on all sides of the island. The room was clean and neat. No frills but it served it's purpose. Proximity to the Coconut Market was a plus for nights that we did not want to go out to eat. There are several good...

In September 2011 my wife and I stayed at Aston Islander on the Beach hotel on Kauai for two nights. The hotel is relatively close to the airport 15-20 minutes but ideally located at the beach. It is definitely worth booking breakfast (at Eggberts, a breakfast place 2 minutes away from the hotel) in advance already. The room was relatively...

We have a timeshare in Poipu but I try to stay at the Islander at least a few days everytime I go to Kauai because it's close to my sisters in Kapaa. Although it is a great central location on Kauai the traffic in that area can be really heavy at times. For the best deal I usually book through...
