Utterly relaxing condo haven on the east shore of Kauai
Vacationers looking for nice, affordable beachfront digs in one of the top locations on Kauai will find much to love at Aston Islander on the Beach. Low-key and peaceful, the resort sits on six landscaped acres along a strand of golden sand. Strolling the beach and lounging poolside are pleasant ways to while away vacation days, and sunrise doesn't get much better. Grills are available for guests and the hotel rooms and one-bedroom suites offer home-away-from-home conveniences. The adjacent Coconut Marketplace has dozens of shops and restaurants.
Highlights
  • Relaxed oceanfront setting
  • Walking distance to Coconut Marketplace
  • Free in-room Internet access
  • Complimentary parking
Location
Kauai's Coconut Coast is the most central and convenient for vacationers who want to explore all that the Garden Isle has to offer -- which is to say, a lot. Aston Islander on the Beach is located almost mid-way between Waimea Canyon to the west and the riveting cliffs and dramatic topography of the Na Pali coast to the north. Poipu Beach is about 15 miles southwest. The eastern shore has its own compelling sights, too. Peaceful Wailua River, Wailua Falls, and Kauai Backcountry Adventure's Lihue tubing are just a short drive away.
Rooms
Teak furnishings, private lanais, air conditioning and free Internet access give accommodations an inviting island ambiance with contemporary appeal. Aston Islander on the Beach offers 198 units -- hotel rooms to one-bedroom suites -- in the low-rise, walk-up buildings set around the pleasant property.
Features
The beach at Aston Islander on the Beach is perfect for strolling and sunning and the pool is a peaceful respite from the frenetic world. But sports, sights and restaurants are nearby, allowing guests to choose how to spend their time. Lydgate Beach Park, for example, draws swimmers and snorkelers of all ages to its protected, sandy lagoon, and nearby Wailua Golf Course was named by Golf Digest as one Hawaii's 15 best courses.
Dining
There are no on-site restaurant but grills on property offer family cookouts. Guests can walk to restaurants at Coconut Marketplace.

Great location

This hotel was a great location to explore the island. It was clean and the staff was great. The only concern I have is the amenities fee that added up over our 9 day stay. Make sure to consider this fee when looking at the overall price of this hotel.

A convenient, clean room by the beach

The location of the Aston can't be beat for the price. There are also a lot of delicious eateries near the hotel including Tree Lounge. Definitely recommend this hotel for cheap travel to Kauai.

Kauai Stay

It was a nice place close to lots of restaurants and shops. Right on the beautiful beach although hurricane weather didn't allow us to get in. Didn't use any hotel amenities just slept there as we were always gone. Only complaint is needs new beds. Probably try another place when we go back because of that.

Excellent location

Quiet place, good location to start traveling around the island, some problems to reach it when we arrived because it isn't on the main road.

Great Kauai trip

Aston Islander on the Beach was great. It's located on east coast of Kauai and both north and south are super easy accessible. We didn't spend much time at the hotel because we wanted to see island. If you are kind of person that want to explore island then this hotel is great for you but if you have family and you're only want to hotel with accessible beach where you can swim that you should look at hotels on the south coast.

great vacation

This was our 5th time staying at this hotel. Has always been very nice place to stay. Great location and the price is good for Hawaii. The only thing this time was the bed was uncomfortable. Need new mattress in that room. Staff very nice and helpful. Grounds were beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing vacation . Would stay again.

Great place to sleep

We used this hotel as our base to sleep after our activities during the day and to lounge on the beach. We love the location because it's in the middle of north and south shore. Plus, we were staying in Kapaa where the locals live so the food prices were more reasonable than North shore. Our room was ocean view which had a view of the ocean from the balcony and partial view from the room. This hotel is ocean front which is great but swimming in it isn't safe. There were some old beach chairs on the beach but they need to be updated since they're falling apart. I never used their poolside chairs. Why would I lounge on the poolside while I can have a beach to myself. The staff was excellent and took care of any problems we may have in our room. Our room was comfortable but it's quite obvious that it needs a little updating. I believe the hotel is taking care of that with its recent construction going on. All in all I like this hotel and will come back in the future.

If you're on a budget, go to the local supermarket, Big Save. They have some great poke at a cheap price. The fruits are so sweet and you can cut them in your small kitchen in your hotel.

Great place

Great value for an ocean view 3rd floor room (304) it was the best view i could imagine for $140/night. The resort is clean and with lots of amenities. The rooms have little kitchenettes, and its located walking distance to great restaurants. The staff are super friendly, free coffee/juice/fruits from 8-9am (m-f) free unlimited dvd/game rentals. Great snorkeling in your backyard too. The resort is at the MarketPlace.

Kilauea Fish Market: Best seafood served. This place KNOWS how to cook fish. I ordered the ahi plate, it was perfect. A comparable dish at a resort restaurant would of cost 3 times as much.

stayed at this hotel many times

Probably 6-7 yrs and enjoy the location, right on the ocean with beautiful kept grounds. rooms are okay, clean and neat with Microwave, small fridge and sink. You have a couch, TV and small table. Patio/Lanai has a table and chairs. Even partial view of ocean is fine as you only have to walk 50 yards at most to the ocean. Pool is small but clean and convenient. nearby restaurant TREES is fabulous with entertainment every night. Great place within one half mile of town Kapaa with Safeway, etc. Value is great.

As mentioned TREES is short walk with cocktails and great food at reasonable prices. Entertainment every night 5 to 8 or so and then they change bands from 8:30 to 10ish. Great spot with a young friendly married couple owners who work there!
