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.

Although the unit is a bit on the small side (it is really a hotel room) compared to, say a one bedroom unit, is it well equipped with good quality items, well organized and cleverly stored. Towels and linens are good quality and there are lots of extra towels. The bed was very comfortable with an assortment of pillows to...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Our expectations were very mild coming into this place. Those tempered expectations were exceeded after we were done with our stay. The positives are the affordable price per night, the location on the beach and next to places like Lava Lava Beach Club, coffee shop and other shopping. The room was also pretty well updated and the front desk service...

This was an extension of our week condo stay in Lihue. We wanted to stay longer on this fantastic island. Spring break was over for daughter, so we chilled by ourselves. This is a big resort, layout is spread along the beachfront where a daily leisurely stroll is possible. There are no elevators here, so ask for ground floor if...

We had a waterfront King size bed unit. It was very comfortable. The unit was clean. The unit was also equipped wit a sleeper sofa. The pool was not heated... the sea was more comfortable. It was a great stay... too short.

Very clean. Nice bedding. Quiet room. Responsive service. Good amenities...gas grills, pool, bar, proximity to beach and good location to go in either direction. Bike path close by. 24/7 Security guard. Wished I didn't have to pay the $20/day "resort fee." FYI-No eating utensils provided but hotel loans you long tongs/spatula for grill.
