Kauai Re-Opening Experience Lovely
(San Jose, California, United States)
We decided to take a trip for a birthday and chose the Islander on the Beach for the Aston name reputation and the location. Since the property had very low occupancy due to 3 days after Kauai re-opened (Covid19) amenities were closed ie...bar, shops etc. That was to be expected but Lori was so kind!! She greeted us at check in, provided information , a birthday welcome gift, some coffee vouchers and her phone number so that if we had questions or needed anything we could reach her. We did have a few questions and Lori was super quick to respond! Thank you Lori!!! Not having the resort full and the pool to yourself will spoil you :) The room is decorated Tiki terrific, clean and has everything we needed. We had an Oean Front room and it is wonderful to wake up to the sound of the crashing waves. The size of the resort is small/medium and perfect for our taste. The grounds are manicured and lovely. The location is central and could not be better for everything we wanted to do. Many great restaurants close by and the best of all is the Coconut Marketplace is walking distance. The Marketplace has the best ABC store with food & snacks to keep in your frig in room. Also a deli and hot food meals if you prefer. Since many shops around Kauai in the towns are still closed the ABC store saved us on our shopping. The marketplace has great shop choices and other eateries we took advantage of and most were open. This is a special resort and what I prefer over the huge ones that seem to lose their personalized touch. I highly recommend The Aston Islander on the Beach and look for Lori, she is the kindest person you can meet.
We stayed here for two nights and our experience was great despite the whole covid thing. Hotel occupancy was very minimal and so we got to experience this place as if we were the only people here. The tourists aren't back yet so BOOK here before it ends! The staff are very helpful and pleasant, so remember to tip good! Also remember to be respectful during your stay. Thank you.
My girl and I wanted to get off Oahu for the weekend and shoot over to Kauai for some fun. Was looking at a bunch of hotels and landed on this gem oceanfront and in a very convenient location. The rooms had a vintage feel and were cozy and the property was gorgeous. Definitely a great price for locals who want to go outer island or for visitors coming to Hawaii. We will definitely be staying here again.
Kauai is the northernmost and geologically the oldest of the major Hawaiian islands.
Kauai has more miles of beach and hiking trails than any other Hawaiian island.

Kauai is the only Hawaiian Island that has Rainbow Trout.
Be sure to try the Kauai original “Flying Saucer” or “UFO,” which is a sandwich grilled into the shape of a flying saucer with a pie pan. The panini-like delicacy is filled with a sloppy joe mixture of ground beef, onions, ketchup, soy sauce, sugar and black pepper, and a slice of American cheese.
You may have heard of spam musubi, but have you heard of Kauai’s Goteborg sausage musubi?
