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.

First time stay at Aston Islander on the Beach in Kauai Island

I was charged in full for amenities, the pool and hot tub were out-of-ordered for the entire time I was there. Advertised as High-Speed Internet access & Wi-Fi was too slow to connect to my phone (never get connect). Without the beach I would ask for my full refund.

Best value

This is our third time staying here. Great value, even with the added per day fee. I challenge you to find a cheaper room that is as nice. Sink, fridge microwave, and grills at the pool keep eating costs down. Great location close to the airport and easy to get to. The staff was pleasant, helpful. I will stay here on my next vacation to Kauai.

Nice and clean, free parking

Very nice place to stay in. We had an ocean view room which was amazing for having breakfast on the balcony. Kitchen amenities and coffee for free as well as parking. Good location for exploring east and west Kauai if you plan one direction each day. Airport in 10 mns by car.

I recommend Aston Islander

Excellent location, walking to restaurants, shopping, boutiques, ocean, coastal bike path...and centrally located on the island so you are never more than 90 minutes from any of the many sight seeing and activities on Kauai. Beware of the contra traffic changes during the school year...otherwise, this island is very easy to navigate.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Find a local farmers market, buy farm fresh local tropical fruit...stow in your hotel refrigerator and have fresh fruit for breakfast every morning in the comfort of your room lanai over looking the beach and experiencing warm tropical breezes, listen to the birds, and if you're lucky, you might even see a gecko.

Nice stay at Aston Islander

Not a five star hotel but good value for you money. Location is great being half-way to the north side of the island and to the south side of the island. Clean room and grounds. Comfortable bed and pillows. Usual problems trying to connect to the internet, but one of the staff members eventually got us up and running. Located right on the beach which is beautiful, but the reef doesn't lend itself to a good swimming spot. No worries, plenty of nice beach elsewhere. Honeymoon gift was a nice touch.

Great Hotel Stay

We booked over a month in advance. Arrived early in the morning so we called to see if early check-in was available. Staff was very friendly, we had to call closer to noon. Ended up not doing the early check-in but room was ready when we got there. Very clean & comfortable, mini-kitchenette (micro, sink, coffee maker, fridge). DVD rentals included w/amenities fee. We requested late check-out and got a complementary hour free. Extension was $109 till 9pm.

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.
