Aston Islander on the Beach
- What's Included
Ashton Islander is centrally located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants on the beach, beach, and nightclubs -specifically trees. Choose your relaxation time carefully as the pool can be overrun with screaming children for most of the time. The beach can be a little dangerous with coral and rough surf but, the views are stunning and the grounds are meticulously cared for by the staff. Smiles all around!
We stayed here for one week in June and were very comfortable. The rooms are well kept for their age and the service from all staff is excellent. The hotel is well situated adjacent to a market place and a short walk to supermarkets and drugstores. The view from the beachfront rooms is of a long beach and an endless sea with the mountains to one side. There is a good pool area with bbq's and bar and free dvd's included in the room rate.
We have stayed at the Aston Islander many times, and will continue to return. The Aston Islander is a great place to relax and recharge! You will love the staff! Amy at the front desk will take good care of you! House keeping does a great job keeping your room nice and clean. Ester is the BEST!Some new updates have happened sense our last visit. THANK YOU ASTON! ~ New BBQ grills~Updated walk in showers~More beach loungersThe grounds are still as lovely, ground staff is always hard at work, and they are super friendly. We usually stay in room 347 Ocean front, we love the location, super close to the beach. However this time that room was booked.. I was bummed about this ~ until we seen 332 Ocean front~ corner room ( extra window ) LOVED THIS ROOM! The new walk in show was a great surprise! The kitchen had EVERY THING from micro, bbq supplies, wine & champ glasses, strainers, cutting boards, blender, you name it! It has it! Yes, the view is amazing from this room as well!We did not have a rental car this time, we did not miss it. We used the ABC store that is open early AM until 10:30pm. It is fully stocked and friendly staff. OK prices, if you forgot the sunscreen, it will run you around $8.00 for a big bottle. Vino & beer ~ and Champs, hard A too. $13.00 for a 6pk or $19.00 for 12pk. We did not see "Dan the Pool Bar Man" bummed about that.. we did not access the pool bar as much because the Older Lady ( do not remember her name ) was not that friendly.. The first night we went down to have a Martini we felt unwelcome. 3 ladies sitting at the bar with the bartender watching an old TV program on the TV with the lights full on.. we started to sit down and the bartender asked what we wanted and I asked for a Martini and she kinda laughed at us and said ~ I don't make those here, you need to go to the Lava Lava bar. Uh-OK, where is it, she grumbled, just follow the path.. OK, then she and the ladies went back to watching the TV. IF~ Dan would of been there, he would of said, WELCOME, pull up a chair, I don't have the fixings for a Martini, however, I can make you this insert something fun and yummy from something he brought fresh picked from his home! He ROCKS, sorry we missed seeing him. DONT bother with the Lava Lave, it was a total meet market. Great for people meet up and party, but not to relax to the sound of the waves and have a drink.The ONLY real problem we had was a really odd problem to have. We had model and a photographer show up at the beach, directly in front of the pool area. They asked guests to move, and she took her top off and they did a photo shoot for about 40 minutes. OK, first issue is: the family with their 4 kids being asked to move and then her going topless in front of them, not cool. 2nd issue Where is the staff, and why were we not notified that this was going to go down. Simple notice and we all could of moved down the beach. I called the front desk, asked if this was a topless beach and was told NO, we will have security come down. OK, security shows up ~ does a "fist bump" WITH the Photographer and watches the rest of the photo shoot.. I call the front desk AGAIN and she said she did not know what else to do. I'm not angry at ALL with the Aston, it just kinda ruined the afternoon for the paying guests of the hotel and the family atmosphere. we really did enjoy our time, setting aside little stuff as stated above, because we KNOW how wonderful this resort is, and how fantastic the staff is. We can not wait to go back!~ You will LOVE it toooo! Book it!
We had a brilliant stay here. The pool area is beautiful and really quiet and relaxing, the facilities (pool, jacuzzi, BBQs etc) were great, beautiful beach too. The room was a little small, but comfy. Good bed, good lanai but no hob which caught us out! Apart from that, brilliant stay, wished we could have had kore time here
Stayed here for 2 weeks for our wedding/honeymoon. Part of our wedding party also stayed in another room. I've stayed here in past years and been very happy. This time was a big disappointment. Maid service was terrible and never improved despite bringing issues up to the front desk. They knew it was our wedding and honeymoon and did nothing special for us. Met other couples on our trip who said they were treated special at their hotel just when they informed them it was their anniversary! Our wedding party had similar issues so we knew it was not just us. Disappointed. Beautiful views and beautiful place to stay however and most of the staff was pleasant so not saying would not give the place another chance.
