Loved this small quaint hotel right on the ocean. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Lovely continental breakfast was a nice surprise! The view was spectacular. The salt water pool was relaxing. Would stay here again!

Thank you for your kind review! We love when guests stumble upon the Kona Tiki ... we are so glad we ended up being a part of your trip. And next time you can just plan to stay longer, so no regrets :)

This is a clean 1950s style hotel right on the ocean. All rooms face the ocean. Where will you get that for this price? There are new caretakers who are taking on a maintenance backlog so don't expect anything fancy..The breakfast is good.
