I really miss this place!
From the time we walked into the lobby, up until we had to leave, it was an awesome experience. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room, close to everything we needed to be close to. Would definitely stay again!
First trip to Kauai-Wonderful
Wow- Where to begin. Our first trip to Kauai, and boy did we pick the best place to stay. We had a first floor ocean front(and I do mean ocean front) room and it was great. The fist night we had a Monk seal come ashore right in front of the room, a volunteer told us about it, was a pregnant female resting for the whole day. A perfect place to stay so you can explore both sides of the island. Across the street at the Coconut Marketplace, there are 2 great places to eat. Bobby V's for Italian and don't miss the Chicken in the Barrel There is an ABC store there as well, can get all your groceries and they have some really good prices on T shirts and the like. Room was clean and large, great staff, as far as we are concerned, there is no better place to stay on Kauai:) Enjoy if you choose to stay here.
Paradise during a pandemic.
This was not the easiest time to be in a hotel. ALL of our plans were cancelled either due to weather or the pandemic, but the staff of the hotel went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. Lovely hotel (no elevators though) with the kindest staff. The front desk ladies were wonderful to work with changing our reservations and the housekeeping staff were helpful and attentive. Just a lovely quiet little resort.
The staff were friendly and professional. The cleaning crew was wonderful and helpful. The views of the ocean and beach are amazing from this hotel. Wonderful pool and the room was great for the three in the family. Management work with us for a late check out because of late flight and rain, she was wonderful. Highly recommend!
Wish I'd stayed longer
When my husband suggested we spend our week in Kauai at Aston Islander on the beach, I pushed back and said I wanted to stay at a 4* hotel. We compromised and spent half the week at the Aston, and the other half at a 4* hotel (which will remain nameless). I hate having to say "you were right" to my husband, but that is just what I had to do. I FAR preferred the Aston to the 4* hotel we stayed at. Staff were excellent, room was comfortable, beach was relaxing and not crowded (it was too rough for swimming, but we were OK with that), and being able to walk to so many restaurants/stores was a huge bonus. A final shout out to the staff - I accidentally left all of my favourite sundresses in the room when I left. They called us while we were at the airport to let us know, but we didn't have enough time to go back and get them. So they shipped them all back to us in Canada. I am so grateful to the cleaning staff (for their honesty) and the front desk staff (for taking the time to send them back to me).
