Sven just pointed me to this thread and WOW! Sneaky's photos triggered a long forgotten memory--I actually stayed here during my senior trip in 1988! I distinctly remember the pool area and those goldfish -shaped loungers. Alas, I was more interested in girls at the time and wouldn't discover tiki for almost 30 (!) years.

Here's a fun fact--The Tiki pictured here on South Padre had a sister restaurant--also called The Tiki--over in McAllen 30 miles inland. Both had the same owner. Here's a matchbook that was used at both but is most associated with the McAllen outpost.
