Tiki Vacation Condominiums
Reviewed June 22, 2012

For everybody that stays at the Tiki In SPI. There is one thing you have to understand all the condos are privately owned and everybody has different funiture ans different layouts. Some of the owners clean there condos by them selfs or they pay the maid service to do it. I myself have stayed at the tiki room 237 and it was a great stay, the room was clean and it smelled great no problems with anything now one of my freinds stayed in another room across the way and yes it had it minor defects but nothing to really complain ok yeah it was a lil dirty and yes you can write about it. Towels and ect. those are your reponsablility its a hotel its a condo. There is a landry place there where u can do your laundry. Also on the price sometimes the owner makes the price or the tiki suggest the price, but when the day is over great place great view great pools great looks

We stayed at the Tiki because our catamaran sailing group's regatta was starting from their beach. We would have preferred to stay elsewhere because of past experiences, but since that's where the group was staying, we joined in...

Our room was full of mold. The lock on the front door of the condo did not work and we could not get it fixed after several requests...

But the thing that caused me to write this review is a mix up on the billing for the room. We paid the deposit on one card and the final balance on another. One of the Tiki staff made a mistake in crediting the payments to our bill. That would have been fine but the woman that called us screamed at us over the phone and threatened to send the sheriff after us due to their mistake. Then when we called back to find out if the mistake was cleared up, she was rude again and said of course it was cleared up or they would have called. No apology, no call to let us know that things were cleared up...

We will never stay at the Tiki again.

The main reason I picked The Tiki was the tropical landscaping.Most of the condos on SPI are large concrete buildings that look cold and uninviting and not what I am looking for on a beach vacation.I was not disappointed in The Tiki.The grounds were beautiful. I felt like I was in the caribbean. The staff was very friendly and helpful !!!! Unit 119 is an updated unit,very,very comfortable, nicely decorated,clean and well furnished, although the dining room set was very pretty it was a little large for the space it is in making it difficult for the family to use.It is a large glass table with points on the corners which were perfect height for my 18 month old grandaughter to walk into.She got a big lump on her head and we had to block the table with the chairs to keep her safe. Outside patio is tiled and slippery when wet,which is often because the dehumidifer drains out to it. Bring extra towels or mats to help keep the water and sand off the floors.Dont forget all the little extras like paper towels,toilet paper,foil, etc.The Tiki is an older complex but they are updating all the units and the location and grounds are great. BBQ pits could use some attention.The one close to use was never cleaned by previous guests. The Turbo shot pina coladas at the Clayton Beach Bar which is right next door are great. We will be back, soon I hope.

I cannot review the management or any other units than the one we stayed in, which was privately owned, but the grounds of the Tiki are well kept and the pool was awesome! The lady at the front office was very friendly when we checked in for our parking pass. Very convenient location as we had a unit right on the oceanfront, just steps down to the sand! We will be back for sure!

We spent a week in a wonderful unit. The grounds and property are well kept and great pools. The employees were friendly and helpful. We have stayed in motels as well as condo's on the island and prefer the condo route with kitchens. Will come back!

Room Tip: Be sure and ask for an updated unit. Most of them are - but we understand there as still a few owner...

We arrived after 3:00pm check-in, the rooms were not clean..very dirty. We rented for the weekend (2 nites) and asked for towel replacement and were told they did not do that because we were only staying to nights. No maid service on the second day. Now get this, we get charged an additional $55.00 dollars for maid service at checkout.

I recently stayed ath the Tiki and we couldn't have have better weather. With the sun out and and private beach (or at least it seemed private), I enjoyed most of my day on the beach next to the Tiki. The staff at the Tiki were very helpful and answered any questions we had. The location is near the turtle rescue center and the bird sanctuary- a must visit for all ages. The rooms were cozy and very clean. The onsite swimming pool was also very nice. Look forward to another visit at the Tiki!
