We have enjoyed this hotel so much we have been back 3 times, Its not fancy but it's CLEAN & has everything you need for a nice vacation. The staff seems a bit unpersonal at times, (I make it my goal to make them smile if they are going to be that way) but when you need them they are...

We read the reviews before I booked this hotell for our first time trip to Kauai. Unfortunately we were very disappointed after we checked in. The room was very dark and smelled mildew. The floor looked like it has not been washed for months. Bathroom was not well cleaned. We had to check out after two nights even though we...

Aloha and thank you for your review. I am saddened to read that you found your room unacceptabel and you moved to another property after 2 days. Did you report this to the guest service agent?

I've stayed here previously and have never been disappointed. I've always found Islander on The Beach a clean, comfortable and quiet place that I would definitely recommend to others.

I spent my honeymoon here in June 1986. I decided to go back, though my wife died in March 2009, this June would have been our 25th Anniversary. So I went back by myself to honor her and our years together. The great view of the ocean was the same. The hotel is an older one than many others on...

Room was as described. My husband and I stayed for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Nothing fancy, but affordable. We stayed 12 nights, but were moved on the last two nights due to construction work being done on the whole unit. They refunded our money for 2 nights which was nice, but they wanted to move us to a room without...

Aloha, Please accept our apologies as rudeness at the front desk is not acceptable whether you are renting through a private owner or through the Aston rental program. We received a few complaints regarding the Little League players and did contact their coaches and advisors on their conduct at the pool. The front desk staff are Aston Islander on the...

This was the ideal location for our first time on the island, so we could access the north shore and the south shore for our explorations. Aston Islander on the Beach is a comfortable, well maintained resort. We enjoyed walking on the beach in the mornings, the pool, the Sand Bar with its Tiki torches, the beautiful landscaping and the...

We chose this hotel based on reviews we read here, and it was the perfect choice for us! First of all, the hotel is located in a small community which is centrally located for all activities on Kauai (you need a rental car, of course). It's about 10 minutes or so from the airport, and every kind of commercial resource...

Great central location for a first time visit to the island. Staff was great, room was super clean. We stayed in a beachfront room and for the cost it was unbelievable! The beach kinda sucked for swimming when we were there, shore break and storm offshore make swimming difficult unless you are experienced. Overall a great place to stay, staff...

“We had "garden" view room, but they were nice to put us out the outside so we could still see the beach from our room.”
