I can't say enough good about this trip, the island, and the hotel. Coming from Wisconsin the weather was nice (yes, it rained a bit but it was still warm), the people are very friendly and the hotel was comfortable. My husband and I had a garden view room yet we were still able to see and hear the ocean...

I just returned from five days here and could hardly imagine a better week in paradise. Okay, if I have to find fault than it would be the tree which exactly blocked the sun for me as it rose each morning. I still got some fine sunrise views and photos, it was just funny how that tree was situated precisely...

We just returned from the Islander and have nothing but great things to say about the stay. The staff we're friendly all the way around. Never a problem requesting anything. Grounds are kept clean, and everything is within walking distance..Farmars market tuesday in am for fresh fruit. Would stay there again in a minute

We stayed in this hotel 5 days over the New Years, although we booked through Castle Resorts not through Aston. In practice it makes very little difference as the property is the same, although both have different receptions. Price was reasonable. We got an oceanview room on first floor, nice, spacious, comfortable and clean, although the aircon unit on the...

Though it isn't opulent, it is very comfortable and the localtion is within walking distance of shops, beach, swimming and restaurants. I definitely recommend oceanfront and not a bottom floor. The rooms are adequate and clean and there is internet access in the lobby. The pool is perfect for kids as is the beach and the units are nicely spaced...

Very nice,helpful and friendly staff, Clean room, granite counter top in sink and bathroom, with microwave, ref and table wares. It is vey convenient location to explore the island and close to the airport, easy to find even if you arrive at night, right at coconut market place, where there are stores and restaurants.

My colleague and I were in town for an event, and we stayed at the Islander because we were offered a contracted event rate. When we pulled up at the hotel, I was a little bummed--it looked like an old motel from the 1960s, albeit well maintained and landscaped. The open air lobby and cavalier front desk staff didn't do...

We checked in to find a very musty smelling room, and ants climbing along the sliding glass door!! Yuck! But they quickly switched us to another ocean-facing room, with even a better view!! Nice of them! But they are just lacking in amenities. Small kitchenette area. Only a mini fridge and micro.No paper towels, not even a toaster to be...

We stayed in Islander 10 nights in January 2011. An amazing hotel for its price. Honestly even more than we expected. Rooms are clean, staff is very friendly. Do not expect an extra coffee or soap there, they don't provide this kind of room service, but it's not a big deal when you look at your billing statement after your...

Okay, it isn' t plush..but it isn't bad either. Much nicer than our bargain hotel in Honolulu. The lack of elevator meant husband had to carry heavy bags up the stairs..(no they do not help you.) But there was a coffee maker and coffee each day..decent furniture..and overall not bad. The pool is quite small..which could be a problem in...
