We were greeted very nicely by an over worked front desk person who started our stay off very nicely. I wish I could remember her name, but you could not ask for anyone more friendlier. Our room request was honored and we were on the top floor – beach front. Yes, it is quite a hall carrying your luggage up...

Aloha and thank you for the wonderful review. Guests who choose to stay on the second or third floor have to take their luggage up the stairs as There are no elevators. It can be difficult for some, but once in your unit, the view is spectacular, especially from the ocean front units. My apologies for the problem when you...

My husband and I just returned from our annual trip to Kauai. We love the Island of Kauai, the people, it's lush beauty and pristine beaches so much we feel compelled to visit yearly. We stayed at Islander on the Beach since we've stayed there in the past and it only seems to have improved with time. The unit #144...

We stayed at Aston Islander on the Beach from Sept. 1 through 8 and found out that this place is centrally located on the island.The coconut market place is just a walking distance- you do not need to drive and you will find most things you would need. Main shopping could be done at Safe way or WalMart. We stayed...

First off, everyone should consider how skewed reviews are on this and all hotels in general. People are more inclined to report negative than positive. We stayed here four days and talked to a lot of people around the pool area and at the poolside bar. We didn't find even ONE person who didn't think this place was great. Central...

We choose the hotel more for the location, which was indeed handy to explore the island. We didn't find the front desk staff very friendly of accommodating. They first assigned us a room on the ground level that smell badly. We complained and got, without any hassle, a room on the second floor we really liked, as we had a...

We stayed three nights . They were very kind and allowed us to have an early check-in (around 10:30) because the room was ready. The room is comfortable and quiet, but our partial ocean view was of a tree (which didn't spoil our stay). It is located behind a market where you can buy souvenirs and have lunch or dinner....

Aloha and thank you for your review. This morning started with a drizzle and now it's sunny with a slight breeze. We agree with you that the "pool" is small for the number of units we have here and when occupancy is high, it does get crowded. Just a short drive to Lydgate will take you to an area great...

Great location for easy access to either North or South, close to restaurants and shops. Right off the beach with a swimming pool with BBQ and bar. Units have great space with lanai to chill.

Nice location, good clean room with fridge, and pretty gardens. We pretty much only use hotel rooms for sleeping so this place served its purpose well. No restaurant onsite, but Coconut Market nearby has a fairly good selection of eateries as well as convenience stores. Parking can be an issue, though.
