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.

too many screw ups

terrific venue, staff very courteous, great location, nice amenities BUT: the hotel lost one night of our stay, had to produce our itinerary to get this resolved, also the hotel charged my credit card for an amount they were to charge to the agency. Had to spend over an hour on the phone to get this resolved AND was told it would take 5 to 7 days to get the charges reversed.

Do your homework - you do NOT have to use a tour agency to visit most, possibly ALL, attractions.

Good Hotel for a Good Price with Good Location

I stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend. It was our first time on the Island. It was conveniently located mid-way between the south and north coast, so we got to go all over the Island easily (without having to drive more than 30mins at a time). The resort itself is a little old. Its right on the beach, which is nice. If you stay there I 100% recommend ocean front (which is what we did). If you leave your door to the terrace open you can hear the waves while you sleep, which is super relaxing. You will find a lot of families and couples at this resort. If you are looking for a younger crowd, you might have better luck in the south coast by Poipu. Overall, the Island is super melow. There is not much to do at night, so if you are coming here is definitely to relax at night. If you are looking for a night scene, I suggest you go to Oahu (been there). WHEN COMING FROM THE AIRPORT IS A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO FIND SO... once you reach the coconut market, it'll be right behind that, next to the Marriot.

Excellent Location in Wailua

Probably the cheaper of the resort hotels in this area, but clean and spacious with oceanside connecting walkways to the higher end neighbors so it feels more expansive and provides seemless access to their bars and restaurants. The beach is not the best for swimming- Lydegate SP is close by. Good location for local bus connections, shopping, and food.

Great Getaway Location

Older, beautifully landscaped, central location near Coconut Market Place, makes shopping and sightseeing convenient. Clean, comfortable room w/mini fridge, coffee/tea & microwave. Laundry facilities on site. Economic amenities fee includes daily newspaper and DVD rental card. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't beat the value!

Looking for a "local dining experience"? Try TC's Island Grill. Gotta try the humongous "shave ice" at the Fish Shack, too!!!
