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.

Very nice place to stay

My wife and me stayed at this accomodation on May 2012. We felt like home, and the location was strategic. If we'll go to Kauai, another time Aston Islander !

great location and price

Friendly staff. Liked that dishes, silverware and cleaning supplies were provided. Microwave was very handy. Kapa'a is in the center if everything so the drive to our destination was never long. The coconut marketplace is handy for lunches and extra coffee. The $10 amenities resort fee is bogus - didn't even use the TV or DVD rentals. Pool, hot tub and BBQ area was always clean. We paid the extra $ for ocean view and technically didn't have one - you need 3rd floor or one if the 2 beach facing buildings. Overall - we will be staying here again and again. Its very convenient and for the price - i can't really complain.

Great Stay

We stayed for a week and really enjoyed having coffee/toaster/refrigerator/microwave in the room - saved money on not having to eat out every meal. Met friendly travelers at the community grills. Great place for those not looking for the full resort package. Oceanfront was excellent.

Slept to the sound of ocean waves

Overall, it would be hard to beat what you get for the price of this hotel. Clean, quiet, attractive with friendly staff. Rented a single queen room. Not super fancy but is attractive, clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect for us as we wanted to explore both the north and south of the island. Parking can be a slight hassle if you return later than most guests (as we did) but that didn't really bother us. We had a fantastic time and plan on returning some day. When we do this hotel will be at the top of our list.

Aston Islander reflects the essence of the character of Kauai

The Aston Islander on the Beach is a wonderful hotel centrally located on Kauai. Clean and comfortable rooms stocked with dishes, refrigerator, microwave, etc. Rooms also have private lanais. Staff is friendly and laid back. We had a partial ocean view room, and the view of the ocean was gorgeous - perfect, actually. In some ways, the hotel goes all-out....the grounds are beautiful, the staff is very helpful. In other ways, the hotel scales back the services, which reflects the quiet, neighborly, simple life of Kauai.....no vending machines on the property. Limited parking. Pool and laundry room shut down early. No elevators. The beach is not good for sunbathing. The water is rough, and the sand is coarse. The beach is narrow. However, the crabs are fun to watch. We would return here again.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The hotel charges $10 plus tax per night as a resort fee. In my opinion, this is not a resort hotel, at least not like the resorts we have stayed in. For the fee, you will receive internet access, coffee in your room, and a daily newspaper. These are amenities most hotels include for free. The other thing included in the resort fee is free dvd rentals, which is nice, but who goes to Hawaii to sit in their room and watch movies?!! A room with a view of the ocean is best. Partial ocean views are great and not that much more expensive.

Great experience

Great location - easy drive north and south, clean rooms, beautiful location on the water. Patio and kitchenette! Laid back and quiet, great for our family. Walking distance to small outdoor mall with convenient store, simple restaurants and souvenir shops.

Dining out is expensive and the food mediocre. Buy stuff at a local grocery store, bbq at the pool and use the kitchenette in the room!
