It’s okay hotel close to the beach, clean but front desk is not open 24 hours, housekeeping cleans your room only when you ask for it, and no dining area

We got an ocean view room for our honeymoon and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms themselves are a little dated but everything was clean and the beach was outside our doors. Staff were friendly and helpful, grounds were gorgeous, several shops are nearby to walk to. Pool is great but we didn't use it. Seemed to be more of an adult property than child-friendly, was pretty quiet. Only downside was that the beach itself is quite rocky, which I realize they can't control but is helpful to know especially if you have kids.

Great location and easy access to nearby shops and restaurants. Very clean rooms, pool area, lobby. Beach towels available daily. Even had a free DVD rental kiosk! I wouls definitely stay here again.

This hotel is directly on the beach! We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room. We took advantage of the closeness by visiting the ocean each day; whether it was a walk along the beach pathway, a walk along the beach itself, or swimming at the nearby rocked off, calmer section of the ocean. The hotel is within walking to Coconut Market which has shopping, food, shaved ice, and activities. Kapa'a itself is a little further down the road but also has shopping, food, and activities. We really enjoyed our stay here and the text message checkout was a neat way to save us time in the morning. We would stay here again if we visit Kauai in the future!

We enjoy this place because of the pool and closeness to the beach.

Great location, beautiful grounds, close to everything including airport, and ocean front property. Would stay again.

We enjoy ALOB so much that we choose to stay there every time we go to Kauai.... We have only been met with kindness and hospitality. We visit with the staff and the security people and everyone is aloha.

I felt that the floors were not wiped properly. They should have carpets. The TV was too complicated to use. The lawn machines are too loud. They should have breakfast in morning. They should give brown sugar and not just white.

I will definitely be staying here again! Beautiful grounds and the beach just a few steps away! Perfect location!

It's small, friendly, close to the beach, pool, spa, lanai, kitchenette, close to shops. What's more to want? Would like it if they made re-cycling available. We put too much glass, paper and plastic into the trash.

The location is wonderful. Beautiful view, close to the ocean, great restaurants and great hikes are central to the location.

When we stay in Hawaii, we stay at Aston. We have tried Hilton and Marriott and they just don't have that "Hawaii feel". We've had many stays at the Aston Beach Tower, the Aston Kaanapali Shores, and the Aston Maui Hill, LOVED them all. This resort is not in the same league. Yes, the oceanfront is right on the beach, and it's a great location, but the units, at least ours and another couple we spoke with need some serious upkeep. Nothing super dirty, but just needed work. Black toilet seat in areas from where the paint had worn off, mold/mildew in the corners of the bathroom, patio door handle that was bumpy because it was so rusty, and light showing in from the outside around the main door frame. We spoke with another couple, and they said that the units are showing wear, and that's just the way it is at the Islander on the Beach. We could speak to them about a different room, but what we had was probably as good as the units are. We were there during a very hot week, but the air conditioner was set at a constant 64, and we were still too warm much of the time, especially at night. We did mention this and they said they would create a work order. I'm not sure if someone looked at it or not, we never got a follow up. Overall, great location, very close to the beach, nice grounds, but definitely not to the same level we have experienced at the other Aston resorts. If I knew I was getting the same/similar unit again, I would look for a room elsewhere.

Was very disappointed. Booked room with ocean view and the only view I got was the swimming pool. However very friendly front desk.

Bedding was clean, but they did not clean the floors or bath after 1 day of our stay. Loved the grounds, proximity to the beach and of course the amazing coffee house. We would wake up, take a few steps and enjoy the best, most delicious and fresh coffee ever from IMUA COFFEE ROASTER. It's what made the stay so much better. The pool needs cleaning.

The property location was perfect! Walking distance to the coconut market place which has several shops, restaurants and a very convenient market. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Airport is about 10 minutes away which was nice. Our room was upgraded to an ocean view which was beautiful. Would definitely return

The property is centrally located for exploring the island. We enjoyed the garden like landscaping and watching the sunrise from the beach. The daily amenity fee includes a free delicious mango lemonade each day of your stay. Also included are beach towels. We also liked the pretty views from the beach.

Great location and great service. Will definitely return.

We loved how close this is to the ocean, the garden pictures just don't do it justice. This is a beautiful place! Location is PERFECT!!! Close to everything but not too close. Only complaint was the "house keeping" wasn't really house keeping. They replaced the towels, emptied trash cans and after 3 days of no bed making, coffee/coffee creamer/sugar replenishment I left a note so I could get some.
