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.

Beautiful Location

This is a quiet, clean hotel in a beautiful location. It is not fancy, just basic, but for the money, it was a great place for my Spring Break away while my kids were with their father. It is probably busier during the summer, but during March, it was very quiet and when I went to the restaurant for a late dinner before 8:30pm, it was closed for the night. I couldn't even get a bite in the bar. Also, only a few rooms have DSL. There are computers in the lobby with internet, but you have to pay by the minute. As I said, for the money it was fine, but I think next time I'll pay more so I can get more amenities.

great location for great price

the location was great, the view of the ocean is dramatic. close to restaurants and other shopping areas.also the kids had a great time because of the enclosed beach area behind the hotel where they felt safe to swim. the park was also a walking distance. lol,watchout for the chickens they add to the ambiance, its great.

Aston Aloha Beach Hotel

it was nice and simple & my kids enjoyed the pool, the only thing we were upset about was that there was no microwave anywhere in the facility that we could use & also the blackets on the beds looked like they have been eaten by bugs, there were holes all over the blankets. other then that the stay was ok

Central location next to Park

The staff were very helpful and cheerful. It's located next to Lydgate Park with great views of the ocean, safe place for kids to snorkel and play in water and in the center of the island making travel to other sights convenient. The main entry is lovely with internet access and places to sit. The rooms look like they have had some up dates with new counters in bathrooms. Bedspreads were new and paint looked fairly recent. Rusty ironing boards, broken safes should just be removed rather than reminding you they were past their times. We couldn't get the air conditioner to work and all the windows are in need of replacement. The pool area looked tired with old discolored lawn chairs. But all that said if you just need a place to sleep that is central and near the airport it meets your needs. They have great specials that really can bring down the price of a trip to paradise.

Average hotel

Stayed for 3 nights after booking a package. We got what we payed for, an ok place to stay while venturing out to see the sights. Not a very good place to hang out. Run down facilities but comfortable bed. Roosters in the morning will wake you up at 4am! Public beach next to facility..Crowded. Small pool crowded with kids. Won't come back

Aston Aloha Beach Hotel

The hotel has a lot to offer. The location is convenient to all the sights on Kauai but not terribly close to nearby restaurants, etc. I resented the Amenities Fee of about $10 per day (told it covers the movie rentals which I could care less about on Kauai) and was not described in the hotel information. The hotel offered free use of the washer & drier (but there was only one of each for the entire hotel) and you had to buy soap. The most distressing item involved how the beds are made. The hotel used non-fitted flat sheets for the as the bottom sheet. That might not be a problem but these were too small and immediately left you with the sheets being displaced, leaving the bare mattress. Each of the night's sleep was less than pleasant.

A good deal.

This hotel is in a good location and is a good deal for the price.If you use your iPhone for navigation to get there you will get lost the dash in the address messes things up. The hotel is a older one that could use some updating. The hotel staff is very polite and very helpfull I really enjoy when people go out of there way to help you as they did. Caution where you park. Be carefull not to park near the palm trees where a coconut can land on your carn from the wind. If you did not get the car insurance on your rental be very carefull where you park.
