Booked the Aston thru Orbitz along with flight and rental car. Great value, and a nice place too. The grounds where well kept, the room was perfect for 3 adults. It was great to have the fridge and microwave, and BBQ out by the pool. Since we didn't eat out a lot. Used the laundry too and the Coconut Market...

My girlfriend just stayed here after some last minute booking difficulties required us to re-locate here. This appeared to have been built 20, maybe 30, years ago and has been moderately maintained. Unfortunately, they don't expend much effort on maintaining the beach as it was strewn with driftwood making lounging not really worthwhile. However, the people working here were very...

Just returned from a week at the Islander. We did not have high expectations, since reviews here were mixed, but decided to book because of the great flight+hotel package offered on Expedia. Honestly, for the price this hotel is Fabulous. We were upgraded to an ocean front room, which offered us a front row seat to the beautiful sunrises each...

Stayed six nights in September without any problems. The oceanview was great, but my room was on the third floor and there aren't any elevators. I had to lug my Iuggage up three flights of stairs. Not a big deal. I'll just have to pack lighter next time! Parking wasn't too bad. I only had to get a parking pass...

This hotel is small and does have a nice beach...however it is next to a very ugly and run down property which you have to see every time you walk to your room. The grounds are well maintained, and everything is really pretty clean. The rooms and grounds are a bit outdated. the very close proximity to the coconut mall...

Me and my wife stayed here for our first anniversary. The staff was great. When we showed up they knew it was our anniversary and gave us a ocean front upgrade. Any time we needed anything the staff was polite and personable. The location was perfect, you could reach any part of the island in no time. So here is...

Having long been a fan of the Aston Beachboy next door, I decided to give the Islander a shot this time around when I found out the former was fully booked. Mistake. We were first put in a room in the building beside the ugly exterior of the Kauai Sands next door. We took one look at the moldy, mildewed...

Good morning and thank you for your review. I can understand your disappointment when comparing Islander on the Beach to the property which is now Kauai Coast. They are a time share property and don't have the same problems we have with the building next door to us which has been an eye sore for a number of years and...

My wife and I came back to this hotel because we had a great time here a few years back. Upon arrival we checked into a nice room at the edge of the beach, with nice views of the beach. The senior management at the hotel was very nice throughout the stay. However there are several issues which prompt me...

Aloha and good morning! It's raining today and I too feel like crying when I read your comments. Parking continues to be a problem and we hope to remedy with some alignment of parking spaces, i.e., compact cars in an area to increase the number of spaces. I do agree, any additional is a must. I have reported security to...

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were nice, but a little on the small side when you have two people and luggage. The property was very nice and well maintained. The only complaint would be the limited parking at the property. If you came back to the hotel after 8pm you had to get...

We had a room with a view of the ocean. Room was cute and filled all of our needs. Best part of it was watching the sun come up from our lanai. The front desk people aren't that nice though.
