For over 20 years my parents have held our summer family reunion at Ko Ko Kai renting the entire front building for our huge family. My kids, nephew, nieces have "grown up" with Ko Ko Kai - all young adults now. We love Englewood and have some awesome memories. But what 20 years ago was a lovely place has slowly...

Don't stay here!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dump, no refunds given, roach haven, and backed up plumbing. This is the worst place we had ever stayed at, ever!!!!. Paid for three nights barely stayed one and got nothing back. Grade A rip off joint. Pictures very deceiving. There are no marks low enough to rate this DUMP.

The property is quaint and cozy. It's older but has a lot of charm. We were greeted with a smile and check-in was pleasant. The views are incredible. The beach is prestine and peaceful. We plan to come regularly with our family.

Found Ko Ko Kai on the internet, pictures looked great, misleading. The picture of the room on the web site is a private residence (probably the owner) which has been completely renovated. Rooms are ok, but definitely not what is pictured on the web site. We arrived around 3 in the afternoon, rooms looked ok, but opened the frig to...

Twice each year I stay at the Ko Ko Kai and send my real estate clients there. Everything is always consistent as far as service, location and cleanliness. Obviously I will continue to visit as, when I find a hotel or resort that meets my needs and gives me the comfort I require, I will continue staying there. Everyone I...

Owner refuses to return calls after we cancelled our reservation within one day of making them. He surely returns calls right away if you say in your message that you are calling to make a reservation however, he does not return calls if you are calling to follow-up on a promised refund. Of note, they do not have a cancellation...

I have read the reviews and have personally spoken with Steve. Yes, I agree his phone manner is abrupt and short. But who cares? I am not there to make friends with the owner who apparently doesn't reside in Florida. I went there because my friend raved about the place, and because the price was good. No, it is not...
