Courtyard Kaua’i at Coconut Beach Hotel Review: Located about twenty minutes from the Lihue airport in the town of Kapaa --- amid a 100-year-old coconut grove --- this hotel offers a convenient central location and an oceanfront setting along with everything anyone would want for that perfect Kauai vacation. The resort is not large. Nor is it a place where people come to be seen or to impress. Rather, it is casual, tasteful and friendly, and attracts fewer families than other resorts on the island. It offers a nice pool, a small day spa, the open-air Voyager Grille Restaurant and a bar that is especially lively on weekends with lots of locals and live entertainment. The 311 guest rooms are comfortable, affordable and done in dark tropical wood finishes. Wonderful shuttered doors open onto private lanais with --- in the majority of rooms --- gorgeous ocean views. The nearby area has several historical sites, waterfalls, hiking trails, kayaking, shopping, restaurants and stunning island vistas. This is a great value for anyone looking to enjoy Hawaii’s beautiful Garden Island in a relaxed and unpretentious setting.
