This property is great! As other reviews have noted, this is a "condo-hotel": some units are rented through Aston and others are rented privately, mostly through KrellersGetaway.com. If you can get unit #324 DO IT! It is owned by someone who has lived on Kauai for over 20 years and is a wealth of information. The unit has a giant king-sized bed and a 65" TV to match, a huge fridge, a nice desk, oh and the best bathroom in the complex.
The hot tub is great, and although there is not a good swimming beach, you can certainly swim off off the property if you want to. Or just walk 15 minutes to Lydgate Beach.
The best part of Islander on the Beach is that there is a grocery store w/deli RIGHT THERE, as well as several restaurants (Italian, Thai, Chicken in a Barrel, etc.) so you do not have to get into a car to do anything. Also the public bus stops right on the property! It only runs once an hour, but how cool to take a bus up to Hanalei?
Good location! A/C is a plus!

Aston Islander on the Beach is located at the south end of Kapaa on the side near Lihue. There is "traffic," but not like mainland traffic. Everyone should "zipper," meaning that every other car goes so that all of the merging lines go smoothly. No one's fighting, cutting people off, or flipping them off. If everyone plays the game, the traffic is slow, but ... you don't have to go far!
As for the air conditioning, it was lovely. I did have to look on YouTube at the Fujitsu remote control instructions, but I've got it now, which is good since I stayed in 2 other places this trip and they had the same remote. Thank you, Jason Richard, for your awesome instructional video!
I was a bit surprised that the front desk closed at 7 pm on weekdays and 5 pm on weekends! Luckily, I had my cell phone and called security who told me to knock on the door next to the front desk (no answer). Another guy knocked on the door next to the front desk (no answer). Security showed up and got me the keys to the room and I checked out the following morning.
Included with my hotel room was two tickets for coffee at Imua Coffee Roasters. I gifted them to nice people, because I don't drink coffee.
I was happy that I had a refrigerator, but I was a little surprised that there wasn't a microwave. I didn't use any of the "resort fee" DVDs, games, etc. I was disappointed that there are only 2 ice machines on the property and only 1 was working ... the working one wasn't on the half of the property where I was staying.
I enjoyed seeing the cat. I enjoyed that there was a lanai in the back of the room to just sit and enjoy the views. I didn't enjoy that mosquitoes think that I'm delicious. I enjoyed a morning walk on the beach which I had almost to myself for the sunrise.
I stayed in room 155 and couldn't reach any of the Pokestops. I later stayed in 165 and could reach one Pokestop. 165 was through Vacasa, a vacation rental company which I can't quite recommend since they couldn't run my credit card (twice) and I arrived in the rain to no key, a cold shower, and a non-working hair dryer. Vacasa's SNAFUs are absolutely not the fault of Aston Islander on the beach.
