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. Do not like the added per night charge for so called perks by the hotel..apparently they are all doing it.

Kauai Honeymoon

My wife and I recently stayed at the Aston Islander on the Beach and were very pleased with the hotel. The room was nice, bed was comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. Parking was very limited and we usually had to park in the overflow parking lot. We did get a free room upgrade to an ocean view room though.

Decent hotel right on the beach

This was our first time on the island of Kauai, and we chose this hotel based on reviews. The grounds were neat and clean, and the rooms were decent, not outstanding. The best thing about this hotel is the location; right on the beach, though this beach is not for swimming. It is a good, central location on the island, close to Kapa'a and the Wailua river, both of which we enjoyed. Be aware: we stayed on the third floor and there were no elevators, so taking our luggage up four flights of stairs was annoying. All in all, a positive hotel stay, though not sure I'd stay there again.

A Very Nice Stay

This is our 4th time staying at Islander on the Beach over a 10 year period. The location is excellent, right on the beach, with a pool, hot tub and tiki bar Oceanside. Very friendly staff

For that money its a perfect place to stay in !

The staff was very nice, the pool very comfortable with the bar and great bartender. The pool is opened till 10pm, which is great! Hot tub near the pool was really hot like it has to be ! The nature and the view from our balcony was amazing ! When you purchase the ocean view room - its NOT A OCEAN FRONT ! You have to pay for an upgrade of $25 per day to get the room closest to the ocean ! The beach is not good for swimming, its a coral rough bottom of the water. You can not walk safe in the water ! You need to have a car to go on the nice beach, nice restaurant. There are two good restaurants close to Aston, you can walk there 5 minutes ! Enjoy your stay !

Great to be on the water, really run down lobby and beach chairs were unacceptable,

The proximity to the beach was absolutely wonderful, the room was immaculately clean and the lanai was lovely. The lobby was very run down and the state of the loungers were so poor it was rather unacceptable (totally falling apart). I had a positive experience but I had to reach for the positives and really look at the bright side , the state of the hotel was not accurately displayed on the website.
