Aston Islander on the Beach
- What's Included
We just got back yesterday from 7 nights in paradise at the Islander on the Beach. I had one goal this trip: To sit on my balcony and look at the ocean, so I booked an Ocean View room. (I NEVER splurge for Ocean View rooms but for Hawaii I said - I have to do it. It was not much more than the other rooms!)On our first night, they put us in a room that qualifies as "Ocean View", but it was on the first floor and the ocean was blocked by the pool. I almost never complain or make a fuss about anything but as I mentioned this was the one thing I was looking forward to. I figured since we were there 7 nights, maybe at some point in our trip, someone with an actual view would leave and we could take their room, so I asked about it. I am pleased and so THANKFUL to say that Amy at the Front Desk moved us that very day to a PERFECT ocean view room - we had 6 glorious nights in it. I cannot tell the entire Front Desk and Amy how THANKFUL I am to have had this. The view was gorgeous and we were so happy!!!Other than that I would recommend the IOTB for its awesome pool bar (go see Dan, he's amazing!), we were there every evening but one. They have a great Happy Hour and ocean views.You can walk to grocery stores and get snacks for your room, you can walk to restaurants, walk to the beach, etc. etc. etc... We stayed local to the hotel and walked everywhere. It was so relaxing and wonderful - we can't WAIT to go back!
Love the resort. Likes: pool goes from shallow (3ft) to deep (8ft). Beds are super comfy. Clean resort. Good access to beach, restaurants, farmers market (Tuesday and Thursday), shopping etc. concierge was fantastic and helped find us stuff to do in spite of having a toddler and my being pregnant. DVDs available for the whole family. Super sweet and understanding staff. Dislikes/could use some thought: the beds, while being comfy, are lifted. So my toddler fell out multiple times 3 nights in a row before we turned my boys sideways in the bed to have squirming room. Might help to have the little bed rails from walmart available for people with toddlers? No elevators. We had a lot of luggage and had to lug all the suitcases up the stairs. Also, the pool is quite small. Other than those things we LOVED it!
First visit to the island. Rooms tidy and clean. Beds comfy. Free coffee or drink every day. Wifi good. Rooms serviced every day. ABC store a few meters away. Pizza restaurant a few meters away. Parking hassle if you come in late because of the renovations in the parking area going on this time. Free beach towels. Free dvd rentals. Beach is good for the daily swim.Friendly staff. Will stay here again.
We had a wonderful time at the Islander! We were upgraded to a room with a great view which was fantastic. The staff was very helpful and we loved being right next door to a little shopping mall with an ABC store and a pizza place among other stores. The little farmer's market one day has delicious local fruit! Would love to go back one day soon!
We loved this place. It's a beautiful spot. We spent a week here. The grounds and room were extremely well kept. We had a room facing the ocean. It was magical. Can't wait to go back. Here's a picture of the view from our room.
