    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.

    Awesome Staycation!

    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.

    We have been to the Islander 5 times, now, over the years, the last time was October 2017, before covid-19, 2017 wasn't one of my selections when writing this. Over the years, our first visit was in 2002, this property has steadily been updated, remodeled, and has gone from a 3 star to 5 star rating. We always stay in the Kaua'i building, which is truly oceanfront! The smallish rooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished, comfortable, but clean, with a small kitchenette,not lavish. Go to Poi'pu and spend twice the amount if you want lavish. The colonial feel of the Islander is that of a quaint Kaua'i plantation, and the common areas and grounds are perfectly groomed and taken care of, very tropical. All the staff is friendly, helpful and truly making it Aloha! There is a "Sand Bar" next to the pool, serving killer Mai-Tai's, maybe the best on Island. It's very convenient, in Kapa'a, at the Coconut Marketplace, about a 15 min drive from LIH airport. Every morning, I would get up, walk to Imua Coffee, next door,walk a few more steps, grab a lounge chair on the beach, and at 0632 HST, was treated to a wonderful Kaua'i sunrise.It just doesn't get any better. I can feel the warm trades, and the Pacific Ocean, and, lol, hear the constant roosters, which are all over Kaua'i, thanks to Hurricane Ini'ki in 1993 (Sept 11th!). I can't wait to go back, when it all opens up again. Much Aloha to be had here!

    From the time we walked into the lobby, up until we had to leave, it was an awesome experience. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room, close to everything we needed to be close to. Would definitely stay again!

    Wow- Where to begin. Our first trip to Kauai, and boy did we pick the best place to stay. We had a first floor ocean front(and I do mean ocean front) room and it was great. The fist night we had a Monk seal come ashore right in front of the room, a volunteer told us about it, was a pregnant female resting for the whole day. A perfect place to stay so you can explore both sides of the island. Across the street at the Coconut Marketplace, there are 2 great places to eat. Bobby V's for Italian and don't miss the Chicken in the Barrel There is an ABC store there as well, can get all your groceries and they have some really good prices on T shirts and the like. Room was clean and large, great staff, as far as we are concerned, there is no better place to stay on Kauai:) Enjoy if you choose to stay here.
