While the Kon Tiki is one of our favorite places to stay when we go to the coast, this time I found a few things I wasn't pleased with. The Kon Tiki is located right on the cliffs over looking the ocean. Every room has a beautiful ocean view. You can leave your sliding glass door open at night and hear the waves crashing below. It is simply what we go for. It restores us enough to make it thru until we can go again. We have stayed at almost all the other hotels in the area over the years, but always come back to the Kon Tiki. It is priced right, and some of those hotels really make it tuff. In season some are over $300 a night, and up. So, we have come to the conclusion that you get your best deal, and have the best time at the Kon Tiki. It has a beautiful pool with two jacuzies that are situated right in front on the cliff. Basically it is the view though. You can see down to the pier, or down towards Alila Beach in the other direction. The weather can be foggy, but you still have the whole ocean at your front door, and it just doesn't get any better than that, to me.
So knowing all this about the Kon Tiki, my only disapointments were the towels you have in the bathroom. They are so thin and scratchy. Very poor quality, and for a person going out of town on vacation, you expect better. The decor is getting dated to me also. I think updates are greatly needed. Maybe some granite in the bathroom, and have some pretty fluffy towels. Makes a world of difference. Also I don't think our room was cleaned properly. The bathroom wasn't up to par. I found hair on my body after using one of their towels after showering and it wasn't mine! That is not the way you want to start your day. I know we will continue going to the Kon Tiki, for the view and price alone. Just a little incentive, would be nice if they spruced things up a bit. The staff has Always been just wonderful!
