Aston Islander on the Beach
- What's Included
Very convenient location and excellent resort with great staff. Lots of great amenities and eateries close by in the coconut marketplace. Definitely try out the Trees Lounge. The ocean tends to choppy to swim in; however, aesthetically beautiful.
We totally enjoyed our stay in an oceanfront room. This is a more modest resort than some on the island, but it suited our needs in every way. We could afford to have a room looking directly at the ocean and loved the views and ocean sounds from our balcony on the second floor, where we spent most of our time while not exploring the island. We loved the quiet atmosphere here. The room was nicely sized with a queen bed, couch, table and chairs. The bathroom was large and clean. The small kitchenette area including a small fridge, microwave, sink and kitchen utensils suited our needs. The platform bed was surprisingly comfortable with quality sheets and pillows. We slept well.The smallish pool looked inviting, as did the hot tub, but we did not use them. There is a small bar there and grills. There is a walking path that goes along the ocean. The buildings have 3 levels and no elevators. We had no problems getting to our second floor room.The grounds were beautifully kept up with lovely trees, shrubs and flowers. The whole resort looked great.I guess most places have a "resort" or "amenity" fee, but I find them annoying. Just include those things in the price. These days, most places have free internet. This resort's fee is $20 and includes the internet, video rental, towels for the pool, not sure what else. But resort fees feel like bait and switch on pricing, in my opinion.All staff were friendly and helpful and check-in and out went fast and smoothly.
My husband and I stayed at the Aston Islander in room 340 during the first week of April for our honeymoon. We wanted to save some money and wanted a hotel that was clean, had a pool, and that was both near the beach and in a central location for seeing the island since we like to get out and explore. The Aston Islander far exceeded our expectations! The hotel is in the perfect location for seeing the island. It's right next to the Coconut Marketplace where we could pick up daily supplies from the ABC store. There is also a great coffee shop, Imua Coffee, right next door and the hotel gives you a coupon for a free coffee for each day of your stay. There are also great restaurants next to the hotel like the Sleeping Giant Grill and Trees Lounge. We loved that the hotel is on the beach. We got a room with a partial ocean view but you could easily see the ocean. We loved sitting out on our balcony and watching the waves. The pool is super nice and has an awesome bar with happy hour drinks as well as a nice hot tub. There are grills and picnic tables next to the pool right on the beach. We were at the pool on a Tuesday and there was an excellent guitarist/singer performing relaxing Hawaiian music. We are definitely coming back!
Location great! Facilities Very good! Staff pleasant! The hotel met my expectations! Bbq good and clean at poolside. Pool was adequate, never crowded. Beach partial view room was great. You can hear the waves crashing just a few feet away. The Island surpassed my expectations. We were able to do all that I had researched and with the exception of cloudy overcast view at the Waimea Canyon, everything else was outstanding. Snorkeling, kayaking, easy short hikes. ( 60+)
We loved everything about the Islander! It was a smaller, intimate resort with the most beautiful views. It was in a great location 15 minutes from Lihue airport, and just about halfway around the island. So either direction you went in, it was about 45mins-1hr to get to the end of the road. The staff was friendly and the amenities were perfect for us. They had a great little pool, hot tub, and pool bar with wonderful bartenders. The rooms were nicely appointed with an economy kitchen, granite countertops, and a great little lanai. There were shopping plazas and restaurants within walking distance. Try the Santa Maria BBQ joint. It was great! The one tiny little complaint we had was the shower heads were a bit too short for us. Literally, that is it. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!
