Shannon was an excellent bartender. She showed true aloha. There is no one that can replace her. True aloha spirit

My husband and I spent a week here on our honeymoon, and we adored our time on Kauai - it's kind of hard not to, since it's a wonderfully laid-back and quiet island. We really enjoyed staying at the Aston Islander and minus a few small details, we feel like we got away with highway robbery for what we paid...

Upon check in, the front desk person was very friendly and asked if we'd like to pay for an upgrade to an "ocean view" room, which we did. We were given a unit on the first floor. The floor was dirty, the room smelled musty, the air conditioning unit didn't work well and was rusted, and It worried me that...

We very seldom get complaints on housekeeping and please know your comments have been forwarded to the housekeeping department. What you found is totally unacceptable.

Sitting on a pretty sandy beach in Kapaa on the east side of Kauai, the Islander is a very nice, classic Hawaiian hotel. It's not lavish, but it"s comfortable, clean, well-maintained, and enjoyable. The reception area is set in a beautiful open breezeway, the pool and spa are pleasant with a nice bar beside, and the grounds are beautifully landscaped...

We had a great view and could hear the ocean at night from our third floor ocean front room number 353. The beach is not really swimmable, but is still beautiful with its rugged look and breaking waves. We watched a young sea turtle feeding daily along the hotel’s beach. Happy hour at the thatched “Sand Bar” in the pool...

This was our first time in Hawaii so we had few expectations, and Aston Islander exceeded what little we did have! At first the exterior appeared to be run down, at least more so than we imagined however- exactly like the photo's. The interior of the rooms were amazing and updated!! The grounds were well kept too. The majority of...
