Resort beckons families and couples to Kauai's sweet side on Wailua Bay
Aston Aloha Beach Hotel is a super choice for families in part because of its setting -- above one of the most child-friendly beaches on Kauai. The boulder-encircled lagoon of Lydgate Beach Park offers families and others a sweet beach and protected waters for wading, floating, swimming or snorkeling. Resort accommodations include spacious one-bedroom cottages, and there are two pools, two restaurants and a lounge on property.
Highlights
  • Location by Lydgate Beach Park and Wailua River
  • Hotel rooms, suites and one-bedroom cottages to choose from
  • Ten acres of landscaped grounds with two pools and a tennis court
Location
The Aston Aloha Beach Hotel overlooks Wailua Bay on the Coconut Coast of Kauai. Less than five miles from Lihue Airport, the resort is central to all there is to do on Kauai, from kayaking the Na Pali Coast and hiking Koke'e State Park to playing golf and dining out in Poipu.
Rooms
The 190 rooms and suites and 26 one-bedroom cottages at the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel evoke old Hawaii with rattan accents and fabrics that recall patterns stitched into Hawaiian quilts. Air conditioning and a small refrigerator are among the room niceties. Cottages offer a dining area, microwave and toaster for quick snacks and meals. Request adjoining rooms prior to arrival.
Features
Aston Aloha Beach Hotel combines the service of a hotel and convenience of a condo resort. A full complement of services, including an on-site event and catering staff ready to help with wedding celebrations, makes vacation life easy. Activity options include a tennis court and fitness room. The resort's 10 acres lie along peaceful Wailua River and adjacent to Lydgate Beach Park, where lifeguards watch over a superb snorkel spot. The hotel's airy lobby showcases Hawaiian artifacts and quilts for an unmistakably Hawaiian ambiance.

Convenient location

For us, the location of the hotel was great. We were only on Kauai for 3 days so we wanted to see things on both the north and south shores. The lady behind the front-desk (Kai I beleive) was awesome. Super friendly and helpful. As for the bad. The room we got was large, but it had an overwhelming mildew smell. Opening the patio door helped but because we were on the first floor the sign posted told us to keep it locked at night. Overall, the rooms need to be updated. The shower was small, but the water pressure was awesome. Overall, it was a place to sleep at night (which for us being on the go the whole three days was fine). Would I go back... probably not. I's shell out a few more bucks for a nicer place.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're in Kapa'a and need a good meal, stop at Mermaids (on the main drag). Its a little hole in the wall with no indoor seating, but the food (ahi tuna specialties) were excellent. Hibiscus tea was good too.

Review from a frequent traveler

Needs a complete update. 20 yrs ago it would have been ok. Today, it cannot complete. The location is great. Must have ocean view room to distract you.

It's good enough :)

The plus is it's inexpensive. We were just looking for a place to sleep since we'll be out most of the time. Bed was comfy, staff friendly, & great location next to the beach. The drive is only 11 mins away from the airport. The only warning would be the roosters waking you up at 5 am ( I didn't mind since we had things to do anyways) and the extra charges for amenities was $70. The continental breakfast was just four pieces of fruits and coffee. The hotel is run down, but I don't mind as long at the room was nice. The pool was falling apart, but it didn't keep my husband and I from swimming. It was actually pretty funny swimming around and finding loose tiles at the bottom. :) Overall I liked it. We had fun at Kauai.

Weekend getaway

Location was good if you are traveling around island. Not walking distance to many restaurants and bars. The room was very clean. Pool needs some major work.

By the River Hotel

Aston is located just by the banks of Wailua River just before the river meets the sea. Coming from the airport , it shares the road that goes to Lydgate Park/Beach . So it can be tricky if you don't slow down and be attentive. Same thing if you are coming from the north going back to the hotel. Traffic can be heavy during commute hours. They have counter flow lanes in the mornings on weekdays. The place is indeed in need for some major improvements. You can notice that even the towels are worn down. The exercise room was really unusable. The free fruit plate for breakfast was consist of 4 small pieces of fruit. The location is indeed good. Just 7 minutes from the airport and it is sort of an ideal starting point of you travel north or south of the island. If you like long beach walks and then this is a good place to be. Lydgate park has a long stretch of beach access. Around 3 miles going south. The enclosed protected beach with rock barriers is good for the kids .

L&L Hawaiian Barbecue is not too far for take outs. Approximately 3 miles driving north. Free Hula shows at the Coconut Plantation (Also a Whalers Store in the shopping center). Location is on the right side if you are driving north before L&L Hawaiian restaurant.

Overall Good Experience

The Staff was pretty friendly and offered some recommendations on where to eat. The location is nice. Very close to the beach and local restaurants and grocery stores. We got a great view of the ocean from our room. The hotel needs some improvements such as the pool and updated bathroom & shower. Also, the only thing that I really wish the hotel offered, that would have made it so much better in my opinion, would be kitchen for those that would prefer to cook. What does the resort fee include? Other than that, it was an overall good experience.

Buyer Beware

The staff are friendly, location is nice but the hotel is very rundown. The pools are small and missing tiles, roof in main building has a major leak with large buckets holding water. It has been a long term leak because the mould smell is strong. My room on the second floor had a old bar fridge with a warped seal. Pillows had a strong sweat smell. Overall it was very disgusting. The Chamber maids were spraying scented spray to mask the smell on the beds and in the rooms. What ever happened to washing everything each time?the Fish Pond was green, cottage roofs are missing tiles and the entire facility has rotting wood that has been painted over or just left. I would Strongly not recommend this resort.
