Pros-The staff was amazing and so accommodating, very knowledgeable, and friendly always! The property itself is simply beautiful, with the beach only steps away, a little "village" of shops and restaurants right on property, a friendly and welcoming Tiki Bar next to the pool, and conveniently located right behind the Coconut Marketplace, where there are lots more shops, eateries, a Farmer's Market, and live Polynesian shows twice weekly. One could have a great time without ever leaving the immediate area for several days! The sunrises every morning were spectacular! I was there for over 2 weeks and the beach was NEVER crowded, always quiet and very sparsely populated no matter what time of day it was! Cons- The furnishings in the room were a bit dated and could use a little sprucing up. Internet is sometimes not reliable, but that, it appears, is an issue island wide. The biggest issue was the availability of parking. The parking lot at the Islander is simply too small to accomodate all the guest vehicles and several times I needed to park in "overflow" areas and walk back to my room. Also, there are no elevators or staff to help with luggage if needed. I was originally booked in a 3rd floor room (which would have provided a better view of the ocean) but had to switch at check-in when I was informed there were no elevators or help with bags. I would definitely stay here again when traveling to Kauai!

The grounds had lots of beautiful bushes and flowering plants. The rooms were clean and had a small refrigerator, microwave, dishes, etc that you could use. There was a small shopping center that is maybe 1/8 of a mile walk where you can buy food, coffee, clothing and souvenirs. The beach in front of the hotel is not a good swimming spot but a lovely place to watch the sunrise. My 74 year old mom and I enjoed the property.

The property is NOT a hotel, but are managed privately owned condos. The one we rented was nice but did have some challenges. Our over all stay was very nice and we loved the location,

Aloha Anonymous, We are actually a hotel, however each unit is individually owned and some are privately managed. I'm guessing you may have rented from a private owner, and not a room in our rental program. Aqua-Aston takes pride in providing a great guest experience so although you may have experienced some challenges, we appreciate the positive feedback and are thrilled to see you enjoyed our location, and your overall stay! :) We hope to welcome you to our property once again. Mahalo, Rashell C.

The Aston Islander on the Beach was absolutely perfect for our family! The beach was only steps away and everybody on staff was so friendly and accommodating.

Liked the closeness to the beach. Amenities were awful for what we received in cost per day. Did not receive the room I paid for and Air conditioning unit was questionable/caustic.

Nice convenient location to shops and beautiful beach! Free daily coffee or lemonade is a nice touch The resort fee took me by surprise-it was double what I was quoted on line through Travelocity. Check in was very slow. I think the gentleman who checked us in was new and not properly trained. Luckily we were not in a hurry. Activity desk lady was very helpful. She helped us find another boat trip when ours was canceled.
