We only stayed here for 1 night because we were at a time share unit the other days we were in Kauai, but everyone was as friendly as could be. The lady at the front desk upgraded our room to an ocean view room for free, gave us a free bottle of champagne, 2 vouchers for free Mai Tai's and a box of chocolates. We were on our honeymoon so that's the reason for all the extras, but she took care of us and we had an excellent experience!
This hotel is beautiful, the grounds and pool area are fantastic, it is close to airport and very easy to get everywhere. It was central to both the south and north beaches..... the staff was helpful and accommodating. I would definately stay here again.
The grounds were beautiful as was the beach. The room itself was a bit out dated but who stays in their room when they are visiting Hawaii!! I was there to sleep and that's it so it was fine with me.
The bed was comfortable, the furnishings were very beachy and the staff very friendly.
This resort was in the perfect location. Pretty much in the middle of the island so 30-45 minutes to visit other parts of the island. Very close to restaurants and shopping.

I had never been to Kauai'i, so I had no idea what to expect. After reading many reviews, my girlfriend and I decided on the Aston Islander on the beach. It exceeded all expectations. Perfect location, friendly and helpfull staff, beautiful views, and a great room at a low rate. From the moment we arrived, we felt the Aloha spirit. It has a "plantation" feel to it that I wasn't expecting, but I wasn't let down. It's very close to many eateries and shops, which is nice. Eggberts is ok for a quick breakfast, but nothing special. Be sure to hit Harley's for some amazing BBQ, and TC's for fantastic traditional cuisine. Neither will cost you more than $30 for two people, which is a steal in Hawaii. The beach is not ideal for swimming, but it is fantastic for romantic walks, especially at sunrise. Spend the extra money and go for the oceanfront room. You won't regret it. If (when) we go back to Kauai'i, we will be at the Aston Islander on the beach.
We had a time share at Bali Hai given to us as a wedding present but couldn't stand not having a/c. We came to the Courtyard solely for the a/c and awesome location. We never imagined it would have turned out to be so wonderful! Great location, pool area, on the ocean!!
This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been to. The grounds are unbelievably gorgeous, and the views are breathtaking. The staff were friendly, and were extremely helpful when needed. I would highly recommend this place...we will definitely be back.
