This boutique hotel was superb. From check in to check out our experience was wonderful. The rooms are small but nice and clean. The view was outstanding. The restaurant and bar was all we needed and only left the hotel once to eat because the food and service was good at the hotel. Great value.

The good reviews here on Trip Advisor are on right on point. The Islander did not disappoint and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Get an Ocean Front room -- it is worth it. The sound of the ocean there is *loud* and great to sleep to at night. We stayed for six nights and found it to be an... More

Loved our stay at Islander on the Beach. The resort is well maintained for an older property. The room was well furnished and clean. I felt as if we got an incredible value for beachfront just off our lanai. We were not looking for a big chain, high end resort but we wanted to be on the beach with comfortable... More

We stayed at the Islander at the end of August. It was great for the price. My husband and I and my son stayed in one room. A pull out sofa was perfect for my son. We, didn't of course spend much time in the room as there is so much to do and see on the Island. This hotel... More

Aloha and Thank You for the great review. It's always a pleasure to read the reviews and you had some awesome pictures. I'm envious! Not being a hiker, it great to see the island through the eyes of others. Please come back and have a wonderful Autumn season. With warmest aloha, Sandi More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Hawaii.

There are so many things right about this property ... it's on a beautiful beach, it's a great value, it's well located but the bad overwhelms the considerable good.

I am so insulted at how we were just treated at this hotel. We were happy with the room, although the staff wasn't as friendly as everyone else we dealt with our whole week in Hawaii.
