My husband booked this for me as a quiet get-away from their web site. I was not impressed as I drove into the property. Looked like a junky trailer park. As my husband had already paid a deposit I decided to go ahead and at least see the room. The lady who greeted me in the parking lot said the... More

First let me say the owner (Steve) was very helpful when we arrived. This hotel is right on the beach, not much beach area maybe I mean right on the water, absolutely beautiful! That said upon our arrival the room we reserved was not ready so he upgraded us to a larger unit and like I said right smack dab... More

Koko Kai is the worst excuse for a hotel I have ever seen. The owner walked out in a bikini and was very unfriendly. The trailers were filthy inside and out with rotting walls. Definitely not sanitary and it is probably illegal. The pool is green and not even working. And the people that hang around there look like they... More

When reading the reviews for this "resort" the ones that say the place is disgusting are right on target and the reviews that say this is a wonderful place to stay must have been paid!!!! My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this is by far the most disgusting, nightmarish place we ALMOST stayed in. When... More

I arrived at 11pm and found what you will see in the pictures. The place was absolutely disgusting. The facilities are old, there was mold in the closet, cockroaches in the cup in the bathroom, rust on the doors, and it stunk like stale cigarette smoke. It took 3 tries to contact the property manager and he didn't leave his... More

We paid $1200 to spend Christmas vacation here. In less than a week, the junkies that live and do business there had cleaned us out of $1500 worth of fishing gear from INSIDE the condo while we were sleeping with our toddler inside. We called the police with proof of who it was, and the officer that responded shook hands... More

As always my family and I loved our stay at the quaint rustic KoKo Kai. We will never tire of the breathtaking views and calm waters. Nights were perfectly spent at the tiki bar watching the amazing sunsets. Love love the simplicity and kid friendly atmodphere. Cant wait till our next visit

Again an unreal week stay at the KoKoKai. We have been enjoying the KoKoKai for years and this time around we rented a 3 bedroom unit and invited some close friends to share in the spectacular sunsets, private beach, and tiki bar. The 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit situated right next to the sunset deck was like having our own... More

Dale C is absolutely correct. We did not stay and lost our deposit. Losing your deposit a lot cheaper then paying for an exterminator if you happen to take something home.We saw a run down tiki bar and a fence that was wet. Actually looked like the drinking guys were relieving themselves on the fence. The place was appalling. In... More

Just had an awesome stay with two friends I haven't seen in 10 years here, and cant say how cool it was. The view from the upper deck overlooking the gulf is spectacular. We got to kick back with sliders open and watch the best sunset we have ever seen. If you want a reasonable stay on the Gulf of... More
