Not the cleanest hotel on the block. But we saw no bugs, and we got a comfortable nights sleep. We were asked to change rooms mid vacation due to someone "buying" our room. Found that VERY ANNOYING. We were upgraded to an ocean view suite and we just let the issue go b/c we didn't want to dwell and ruin...

Buyer Beware! This hotel has been one of the most frustrating experiences of all my travels. Out of towels, constantly. They don't have enough parking so they make you park down the road in public parking. The staff is definitely NOT customer centered. The beach is at most 10' wide and very steep. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone....

Aloha and thank you for your review. I am so sorry for the unpleasant experiences you encountered during your recent stay here. It saddens me to read your comments and do apologize to both of you. Yes, we have experienced a shortage of pool towels. We order replacement pool towels monthly as there is a loss of 10 dozen or...

Just arrived 9/4/11 and asked for the Senior Promotion. Was told the they are full-up and there would be no upgrade. They did change my room from the 3rd floor to the 1st floor, but I think it was because I walk with a cane, not because it was an upgrade. Asked for the box of chocolates as promised in...

As this was our first time on Kauai I wanted my family to stay at different parts on the island. The first two hotels we stayed at were quite expensive; more than double the price of the Aston. These other hotels were good (after all this is Kauai and how can you go wrong on Paradise?); more of the resort...

This boutique hotel was superb. From check in to check out our experience was wonderful. The rooms are small but nice and clean. The view was outstanding. The restaurant and bar was all we needed and only left the hotel once to eat because the food and service was good at the hotel. Great value.

The good reviews here on Trip Advisor are on right on point. The Islander did not disappoint and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Get an Ocean Front room -- it is worth it. The sound of the ocean there is *loud* and great to sleep to at night. We stayed for six nights and found it to be an...

Loved our stay at Islander on the Beach. The resort is well maintained for an older property. The room was well furnished and clean. I felt as if we got an incredible value for beachfront just off our lanai. We were not looking for a big chain, high end resort but we wanted to be on the beach with comfortable...

Aloha and Thank You for the great review. It's always a pleasure to read the reviews and you had some awesome pictures. I'm envious! Not being a hiker, it great to see the island through the eyes of others. Please come back and have a wonderful Autumn season. With warmest aloha, Sandi

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Hawaii. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and switched rooms for us so we could have one bed instead of 2 doubles for our honeymoon.
