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.
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.
Dining
There are no on-site restaurant but grills on property offer family cookouts. Guests can walk to restaurants at Coconut Marketplace.
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.
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.

POOR staffing at best

I tried to fix issues by speaking with the manager and I left several messages for her to call me. She never did call me back. We had to move out of the rooms in the middle of the night. (I took my mother of 73 years old, and I had to move two rooms without any warning due to the fact the owner was coming in and I had to move out (Heck they locked us out of the rooms.)

Aston Islander on Beach

Good location and based on cost met expectations. Need to heat pool. Too cold to enjoy due to chilly weather in Kauai. Really had no use of it. Jacuzzi great. Overall a good hotel to use at an affordable price.

Great stay

We had a wonderful stay. Had lovely meals at nearby restaurants. The hotel was centrally located so that we were able to explore the island and participate in the activities we had scheduled. Grounds are well cared for. Pool area needs some updating, but is well kept. Walls are a little thin, but since we spent minimal time in our room, it didn't become an issue. Parking spaces become sparse after 5pm or so.

Very nice location

Nice hotel in a great location. Kapaa is centrally located to go either north or south for the day. The hotel is beachfront and the rooms with an ocean view are very nice to watch the beach and sunrise. Truthfully, we didn't spend much time at the hotel. We were always out doing stuff. So I can't comment on everything the hotel has to offer, but it was fine for our purpose. We would stay there again.

A few annoyances.

While clean & comfortable, there were three annoyances. The hotel does not have enough guest parking. The air conditioning controls did not work well. The spring on the door was adjusted too high such that it snapped shut too forcibly which caused a deep bruise on a forearm.

Clean, well located, but nothing special

I stayed at an Aston in Maui that had a lot of amenities, great staff, in-unit laundry, full kitchen, etc. It was great, so I booked this Aston for Kauai. It wasn't the same experience at all. This is just an ordinary hotel. The staff is ok, but not particularly friendly or engaged. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but nothing special. In short, this hotel is fine, and it has a good location. But nothing really sets it apart, and it doesn't have that special feel that the Aston in Maui has. It's a fine choice, but that's about it.

A Great Location

It was generally very good. The service people were very friendly. There is now a $15/day extra charge by the hotel for a room. They explain that all hotels do this. This is irresponsible. It makes a two week stay that much more expensive. This is just plain greed on the part of the system. The local newspaper stated that in January there was a 10% increase in visitors to Kauai (92,163 people). The island has a population of 65,00. All business there is booming and it is due to this fact. Raising prices to add to the profits is wrong. We probably will not go there again (for a fifth time) for this reason. Traffic is often very slow but they are slowly making progress here.

Close to Everything

4th yr at Aston Islander, 5th on Kauai. Great location on east side if you wish to sight see. Great place to loaf as well. Shopping for needed things close by as well as Hiking. Mgr Sandi most accomodating. Desk persons need lessons from Sandi - learning to look up and smile at the customers. immaculate lovely grounds, great pool with bar open 1:30 to 9:30. No restaurant, but two next door. Very pleased overall with Aston islander, Trees and kapaa small town atmosphere.
