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.
