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.
I stayed in 1 bedroom kitchenette suite. Suite was spacious and comfortable. Nice pool. Only bad thing I can point out is they try hard to convince you to attend time share presentation when picking up parking pass. Resort is right next to the ocean but the beach is small and has course beach - not suitable for swimming or sunbathing but OK for walks. Lydgate beach is 5 minute drive away.
It is a great place to stay. The prices are the best. The location is great. The people are great. free parking. Shopping center right across the street. But best of all is this little restaurant in the shopping center that has home cooked meals. the best home cooking we had while on Kauai. Great people run the place and it has the best beefsteak and gravy I ever had. Breakfast is best also. If it weren't for that little restaurant we would have starved. the name of the place is Waipouli Restaurant in the corner of the shopping center. Right across the street from the hotel. A lot of chickens roam the area but they are great fun to watch. The hotel is right on the beach. You can sleep to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. great place, bes we had in all the islands with the help of the little restaurant.

This hotel is very reasonably priced in comparison with others on Kauai. The hotel itself is a little run down, some paint missing here and there and furniture appears quite old and rugged looking, but if you're on a budget looking for somewhere decent to stay, this place is wonderful! The staff was extremely friendly and we never had a problem once. We must have lost our room keys over 10 times and they never gave us an issue and were very helpful.
The pool and Jacuzzi were wonderful to have and I loved the man made pond located steps away from the hotel out in the ocean on a nice beach. It allows for great snorkling opportunites with lots of fish to see and a great swimming spot free of waves and any others hazards.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and I would definitely go back there.
We were winging the room thing in Kauai and found his hotel on Expedia, price was right for a newly renovated room, the decor was stylish and having a brand new kitchen with the eating bar and stainless steel appliances was a bonus. The pool was quaint but very well kept and a pleasure to swim and suntan (very private). We were pretty much the only guest staying a the 52 unit hotel the reason being is the other half of the hotel is under construction and this is probably deterring other guest. We were gone most of the days so constructions wasn't a problem for us and with not many guest around we pretty much had our own little Paradise. When we return to Kauai we will definitely re-booked in the other phase which will be on the ocean view side.
Pono Kai is an older property that is very well maintained and an excellent bang for your dollar when it comes to traveling with family to Hawaii. My husband is European and I’ve traveled the world over with him in our 26 years together. we LOVED the property! We loved the mature landscape, the cleanliness of our entire condo (A207 - oceanfront), the friendliness of the staff, and the other guests. I was awake and on our balcony every morning by 5:30 am for the spectacular sunrises, to see the locals and tourist out on the walking path getting their morning exercise in - it was fabulous. We loved the chickens and cats - - this property takes care of their cats and has them spayed and neutered and feeds them daily. They are not ferial cats. If you want on onsite spa, shopping, restaurants, and a true 5-Star experience go north to the St. Regis, you want a very nice place to stay for a great price go to Pono Kai. Mahalo – Andrea A.
