This was our second trip to the Island of Kauai and our second time at the Islander on the Beach. This time we booked through Kreller's Getaway instead of through the hotel itself (save some money!). The owners/hosts are excellent to deal with. We stayed in room 320 which has a good ocean view. It is on the backside of the complex facing a garden area, so it is less noisy and more private. You are steps away from the beach and there are usually beach chairs available for your use. You have access to all the amenities that the hotel guests have with the exception of the DVD kiosk, but the good thing is that you don't have to pay the hotel's daily fee for internet and "free" DVD rental. There are rental kiosks available in the area at the local grocery stores. No Wi-Fi in this room, but have Ethernet available (tip: check in the nightstand for the yellow cable and it hooks in the back of the TV cable box.) You might also check with the owners as I discovered after our return that we may have had Wi-Fi available from the room next door, which is also one of the owner's rentals. Either way, you can use your laptop. At the time of our stay, there was a cooler, body-board, umbrella, and float noodle available on the lanai for use by current tenants. The location is central to almost everything you want to travel to on the island. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to make it back again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!
