Bali Hai Motel in Acapulco by night...

And yes, that is a Tiki.


This place looks intriguing... mahalo for letting us know about it!

I've added it to Critiki:

Bali-Hai Hotel, Acapulco

There isn't much on the hotel's website, but I did see this picture:

Now, that is not much of a picture, and I may just be seeing what I want to see... but I could swear there's a great big thatch-covered building with swooping peaked A-frame ends there. Yes?

You are welcome Humuhumu! Thank you for Critiki and all your Tiki pro bono design... Where have you been? Long time no see around TC...
The Motel is pretty cool (if you are into frozen in time motels that is...) There's even some Tiki art inside some of the rooms... Hopefully, this will attract some Tiki explorers there and help the Motel stay open for some more decades...

Z-man, I think that was a rendering. Must have been one of those rare foggy days in Acapulco that time!

I spied this place last year while driving through town & maqnaged to get this shot from the van, Not the best, but I was suprised it came out at all. a different angle of the tikis:
