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.

Nice enough place, but expensive.

I enjoyed staying here, but was annoyed with the extra daily amenity cost (about $20 a day). Isnt that why I'm paying for a hotel room in the first place? For amenities? This extra cost was not optional. So why not put it in the price of the room? I enjoyed staying here, but was greatly disappointed that after paying for 8 days, and I wanted to check out 2 hours late, (and the hotel was CLEARLY not full) they couldn't allow it. They offered to allow me to stay two more hours for $125. Really? I was less than impressed.

Good location on Kauai

The hotel room itself was average but comfortable. The room was about a 10 second walk from a decent beach, and the available amenities were sufficient. Really, though, the Aston Islander location (just south of Kapaa and north of Lihue) is excellent. Not only are the north and west shores about the same distance (maybe an hour) from the hotel, but most of Kauai's best restaurants are situated on the east side of the island. All in all, this was a good value hotel to stay in.

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.

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 short break

Visited here from a neighbor island. Second experience at this hotel and was not disappointed. Far superior to Waikiki and much more low key. Ideal place just to relax and centrally located for trips to both ends of the island. Welcoming staff, quiet location, and good facilities. Small but lovely pool, hot tub, and poolside bar. I was upgraded to an ocean front room which was great but have stayed in garden view room before which are also good. Great value for money. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Nice Resort, Parking limited

Very nice resort but experience spoiled by lack of parking in the evening. Ample parking available in neighboring resort but you will need to find security personnel to issue temp parking pass every evening. Recommend resort issue parking pass for overflow parking upon arrival since they are aware that parking is an issue.

Pure Relaxation

I paid a little extra for an ocean front room, and I was thrilled that I did! I spent many hours just sitting and letting the sounds and sights of the magnificent Pacific soothe me. The location of the hotel was truly convenient. I was checked into my room within an hour of landing on Kauai, and both west and north coasts were within an hour's drive. There were quite a few excellent hikes and other activities close by as well. The staff were all helpful and friendly; they truly seemed to want me to enjoy my stay. All in all, I had a fabulous time and would not hesitate to recommend the Aston Islander on the Beach to friends or family.

Nice hotel in a good location, but...

In a good location on Kauai. Although the adjoining beach is not swimmable, you don't have to go far to find a great one. Room was nice and had a fantastic view of the ocean. But parking was completely inadequate. The patrons of a nearby nightclub and restaurant completely monopolized on all the parking Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights during my stay. (Even though guests receive a free parking pass, it doesn't guarantee a spot. And the staff does not enforce the guests-only parking rules).

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Whaler's General Store in the Coconut Marketplace next to the hotel is open late and has just about everything you could need.
