Pretty much what we expected. Several options on room sizes available, but all we needed was a room while traveling through. We got the smallest one they had, which had a bath, bed, TV, small fridge, etc. Heated pool was nice. Room was reasonably clean. Boat ramp on property so would be a great place if you take your boat... More

So very disappointed, though the people who managed or owned this resort were extremely friendly, the cottages were not clean,not updated,many insects, including roaches..grand daddy size. Slept with lights on every night. We had 2 cottages..my little grandchildren had more bug bites than I've seen on a small body. The "water view" is a dirty, pond..with everything including jellyfish, and... More

We do appreciate the positive comment made about our friendly staff and we thank you for that. However, I am saddened that someone would actually spend four days in our resort and not address this type of an issue with our office or maintenance staff. If this had really occurred and had it been reported to us, it most certainly... More

This place is beautiful. Tucked away amidst palms and the sea, an enchanting little escape. We went for a weekend wedding and everyone here was extremely helpful and attentive. The landscape is tropical, there are hammocks, a dock and a sandy beachfront. Each room is different depending on what you are looking for. They offer a great variety of room... More

I first fell in love with this place a few years back, yet didn't make a return trip until recently. Oh, what a fool I've been. This is perhaps the best value for the Islamorada bang, with an extra dash of Tiki thrown in. My first time here, on the fly, we stayed in the lowest price room. It was... More

Kon Tiki is very clean and well manicured with a private boat launch and plenty of parking for your trailer and also dock mooring for smaller boats. Perfect for a weekend of boating or an extended stay. The staff are accommodative and friendly helping with any need you might have. The area is very easy to navigate by vessel with... More

The rooms are old, smelly, and outdated. Staff is unfriendly. About 2 hours after we checked in we noticed a roach on the floor next to the bed. I mentioned this to the desk personnel and was told "that's part of being in Florida". At that point I would have checked out if I could have, but I did not... More

We here at the Kon Tiki Resort take great stride in customer satisfaction. In any given business where a customer or client has the ability to write subjective reviews about their experiences with a particular hotel, motel or resort can sometimes be dishonest. We only have three persons that work in the office and no one here would have given... More

Great place for fishermen, the boat can be docked at the on-property marina and you are set to go. Hammocks for lounging, bayside lounging area to discuss the events of the day, bar-b-que pits and easy biking to local brewery, art galleries, grocery, etc.

We couldn't have asked for a more different stay than our first visit to the keys. We swore we would never come to the keys again without a boat. When we visited we brought our boat, used the on property ramp, boat dockage and free trailer storage. We stayed for 10 days and didn't want to leave. Perfect views, quiet... More

A great place to wind down. Just like an "Old Florida" getaway. Located on the bay side with good dockage for our boat and easy access to both the bay and the ocean. Dated but clean accommodation. Friendly and efficient staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ever been somewhere and feel there's something very important you have to do? Maybe it's fishing or scuba diving or nothing at all. The subtropical ambiance of the Kon Tiki Resort is that kind of place. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating all year round. You'll be in paradise while soaking up the sun next to our heated freshwater pool or on the sandy beach of our private lagoon. ... more   less
