The cons first...the room was no frills, but we knew that - no hair dryer or shampoos, no cups, and we could only get one tv channel to work...the water was hard to get started in the sink, and the shower ran (a hot and heavenly) full force...but...the pros...we weren't there for the water or the cups etc. Everyone who says the pictures don't do it justice are correct; don't make the mistake of going to your room and judging before you have walked to the water. This place was a retreat; we had dinner (carry out pizza and some bottles of wine)by the water with the sunset and later the stars, sat outside for three + hours and ended looking at the stars from the hammock. Family friendly but also couples friendly. Just peaceful, even with a lot of kids around. It is the perfect halfway point between Key West and Miami if you are flying in/out of there.
- 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
