Nice convenient location to shops and beautiful beach! Free daily coffee or lemonade is a nice touch The resort fee took me by surprise-it was double what I was quoted on line through Travelocity. Check in was very slow. I think the gentleman who checked us in was new and not properly trained. Luckily we were not in a hurry. Activity desk lady was very helpful. She helped us find another boat trip when ours was canceled.

disappointed

Cons: Stuff member keep their word get rid of cockroach clean the pool more often
First the hotel location is beautiful, right at the beach. Very quite perfect for relaxing. The down grade our bathroom had cockroach issue. We had many of them running around, and we had to keep fighting with them. The pool and hot tub....it wasn't clean as suppose to be in a hotel. It was ok. The receptionist - we have reserved a transportation from the airport to the hotel 24 hrs as it was requested by the staff. When we arrived to the airport, no one came to pick us up. When we called the hotel, they said "sorry" come with taxi and we gonna pay the bill. Thats how it happened. We went with taxi, they nicely told us they will cover it. However when we arrived home, i see they have deducted that amount from my bank account. Basically they didn't covered the taxi , and they didn't provide any shuttle for us from airport to hotel as it was promised. I feel very disappointed. Not because the money, but because they gave us their word once for the shuttle, and second for the reimbursement, and non of them was kept. Please rent a car same day as you arrive to the airport because the shuttle wont arrive to pick you up!

Mahalo for your feedback it is much appreciated! So sorry about the shuttle pick up. I am not sure who you spoke to about taking a taxi instead but we do not pay for the taxi direct we would compensate you however by waiving a night of resort fees before you check out.

This hotel was very clean, the rooms were not elaborate but very nice and comfortable.Our room had nice little personal touches with some cute nik knaks and pictures. It was also fully equipped with everything needed for a great stay . The location was excellent and the coffee shop on the hotel grounds was absolutely amazing! The young ladies at the front desk were so sweet and helpful and we just loved our time there. Enough to do without ever leaving the property and prices were very reasonable in the shops. When we go back to Kaua'i this is exactly where we will stay again. I wouldn't have changed a thing !

We loved the Aston Islander on the Beach for its location, amenities and friendly staff. The location was close to many activities and we could walk to shops and restaurants. The beach was beautiful and pool and whirlpool were well maintained. The tiki bar was a fantastic place to meet people and share information about activities. The concierege was very helpful in reserving our activities and provided detailed maps and directions. We'd definitely return.

Easy to find and close to attractions.

Pros: Clean and quite
Location: Location is great. Lots to do within a couple of miles.
Get the ocean front rooms you open up your door and can sit out and watch the ocean and you have great sunrises.

Paradise value

The rooms are very spacious, have mini kitchens and are well maintained. Free parking some of which is covered. It has beech frontage although it is on the windward side so the surf is rough and the beach is steeply sloping, but it seems many in kauai are
