My husband has been staying here for 40 years, me for the last 20, and it's just a great place. Most units aren't fancy but management keeps the place immaculate and they are as nice and helpful as they can be. It's great to be able to put the boat in for the week, dock/recreational area are also great. Have... More

I have stayed at The Kon Tiki many times over the years, and it is always a pleasant experience. The rooms are always clean, and the staff is very friendly. They do not charge for using the boat ramp when you are staying there, and the docks are very good. I will be back again.

Been staying here for yrs upon yrs. This time we used rooms 1&2. They are the priciest rooms however in my opinion the best. Best, view, closest to the docks and pool, great bar in #1, super front deck, and most modern of all. They even have fishing rod racks in the patio. I would love for them to fix... More

The room and grounds were wonderful. My only complaint was the price changed when I was checking in, was told that if I was unhappy with the price, they would cancel my reservation and could go somewhere else. After traveling with 3 teenagers for over 5 hours I was in no position to start looking around for another room for... More

Four very pleasant nights were spent in this clean, quiet, lovely place. We were in unit #8 with a kitchen area, seating area, 2 queen beds and nice screened front porch. Room and grounds were immaculate. The beds were comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants, small store. Keys attractions are within easy driving distance. Highly recommend the... More

My first experience of the Florida Keys started here. If you are looking for high class NY style resort living, go somewhere else. If you are looking for great staff, immaculate upkeep and traditional Florida living....KON TIKI! LOVED IT !! Will go again and again!

We found this resort to be very pleasant. Mostly what it had going for it was the location. Beautiful and peaceful. The room was very small, and the beds really need to be replaced, they squeak. The only complimentary items in the room were small bars of soap. There was a full size coffee pot (no coffee though), which we... More
