When it comes to accommodation in Hawaii, the choices are mainly large, lavish and expensive or quaint and budget-friendly. For those seeking a happy medium, this Courtyard offers name brand reliability, resort amenities and a great location on Kamakahonu Bay. It also features the kind of singular details usually associated with boutique properties, from historic artifacts such as a royal feather cape to an ancient temple reconstructed by King Kamehameha. In addition, the 452 guest rooms and suites have been renovated with attractive island accents. Along with a pool, the hotel offers direct access to a stretch of white sand beach, complete with a Kona Boys outlet for renting water sports gear. House restaurants Honu's on the Beach and Billfish Poolside Bar & Grille serve farm-to-table island cuisine and casual fare, respectively. For cultural immersion, Polynesian dishes and dancing are highlights at the Island Breeze Luau.
