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...

Extremely helpful when making reservation to make sure they could accommodate our boat. We called informing them we were going to be late arriving they told us all information will be in the mailbox waiting for us. We arrived got our key and went to the room. The room was spacious and very clean. The air conditioner froze us out!!...

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...

The rooms are old, smelly, and outdated.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...

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...

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...

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.

My friends and I had the honor of staying at Kon-Tiki this weekend while on a golf outing in the Florida Keys. This resort is exceedingly beautiful and very personal in its approach to guest care. The bang for buck is much better than other local resorts and we will hopefully be welcomed back again for our winter Jai-Alia fantasy...

The staff here were friendly. The rooms are clean and simple. A great deal for the money. They have a pool, barbecue grills, hammocks, a boat ramp and dock. The resort is near Holiday Isle and Whale Harbor. Lorelei's, Robbie's Hungry Tarpon, Lazy Days restaurant and The Bass Pro shop. These are just a few of my favorites. Located in...

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
