    We rented two rooms at the Aston Islander Resort from a private owner and were very pleased with the resort on the whole. The resort is a short drive from the airport. It is centrally located so when you go out to explore you will never have to drive more than an hour in any given direction. We stayed on the ground level because we did not want to carry luggage up the stairs. We had a beautiful ocean view. The pool is small but very well maintained. They have a small bar near the pool. One of the things that impressed me the most was how many staff members they had around the grounds. The grounds were very well maintained with lovely landscaping. The hotel is located next to a small shopping center within walking distance. We walked over there for dinners, shaved ice and shopping. There are times you just don't want to get in the car to go out for dinner and we found this shopping center to be a great draw. The resort has a concierge on staff and we found him to be very helpful. The entire staff was very friendly. I will not comment on our room because we rented from a private owner and our unit needed updating. It would not present a fair review to the Aston Islander to comment on our room. That being said, we would stay here again.

    Great Location and Reasonably Priced

    Reasonably priced beach front hotel rooms with basic amenities, acceptable rooms, and well-manicured grounds. A room in the front by the ocean, which included a beach facing deck, was well worth the extra expense and we spent most mornings having an early breakfast and watching the sun rise. Check-in and check-out were smooth, but the concierge could have been more helpful. The hotel was in close proximity to several good restaurants, notably the Lava Lava Beach Club which had a decent happy hour menu and a relaxed vibe.

    Check-in was ok, no porterage and is a 3 storey walk up so don't bring too many bags. Location is amazing, beach is beautiful and warm water. We saw a seal on the beach the first day. No food in the resort, Lava Lava next door is a good.place to eat or there is a shopping centre across the road. Rooms were ok but a lil run down, bathrooms are large. Pool is small for size of complex but other than that is all good.

    Great location right at the beach

    Great location in a calm area right at the beach. The area consist of several 3 floors bungalows in a green area which makes it nice and open. The rooms was nice and clean with a small fridge and a nice coffee machine. We had a sofa bed for the kids, which was a bit hard. The balcony is good for 2 people - but there is nowhere to hang the wet swimwear and you will be told off by a policeman if you use the railing (we know...). The pool was nice but the jacuzzi was not too clean (probably because guests forget to shower before getting in...). There is a great restaurant next to the hotel "Lava Lava" where you sit in the sand on the beach. The parking is free - but you pay $20 in resort fee.

    Can’t make it up

    Nice place, beautiful grounds and shore. Lumpy mattress with no box spring , joke pillow. Woody Allen described whistle shrieking water pipes as sounding like a small animal being tortured between the walls. Well ok. Management has to know, they aren’t going to fix these things. Then, and you can’t make this up. Last day of the stay a bug as big as your tallest finger , on the bedroom floor at mid day, doing a convincing impression of a cockroach. Really? At an Aston property? I presented it to the manager. A very brief, quit apology . That’s it. Checked out next morning. You have to have some minimum standards.
