Really enjoyed the cocktails and entertainment at the festival but would have liked to see more food vendors as was advertised. Marie visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

We arrived to the event at 17.00 as when the tickets were brought it stated that the event ended at 22.00 only to find out that the times were advertised wrong. Did not receive email for change of time . Had 1 hour for £15.00 ticket, Shambles and rip off. They said we would be contacted still have not. Want my money back !!!!!!!!!

. I think the day was really good, fun, everyone was very friendly. Things were a little chaotic and disorganised at the beginning, but that was sorted quickly. However, we purchased the VIP tickets and they were not worth the added expense. The description was completely mis-leading with the three drinks included being samples costing £3, and the buy a drink get a shot free was only at one bar which was only selling shots. So for an additional £30 we got £9 worth of cocktails, a £5 shot and £6 worth of food. The VIP area was under whelming concsisting of some sofas in an area not cleraly VIP only so a bit of a free for all. I would recommend the event, but NOT the VIP tickets!

While the idea was cool, the event had some flaws. 1. There were only a few food places (I understand quite a few pulled out at the last minute which is unfortunate). This meant really really long waits for food, and food running out!! 2. I believe the event was meant to be Polynesian themed. We didn't find it very Polynesian. It was a mix of Caribbean and Hawaiian... very little Polynesian. Maybe next time refer to "islands"? 3. The event seemed to finish earlier than advertised. 4. There weren't many activities to do. 5. The leis ran out. visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

So much fun and better than expected! The whole place had a lovely happy chilled vibe with decent priced cocktails. Would come again for sure. lisaeggy3 visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

Was overall a great day but quite a few hiccups with the event organisation. My DMN ticket said the event was 2pm-10pm however the actual times were 11am-6pm not sure how the ticket got this so wrong but we only found out the day before when Spirit Of Tiki updated their facebook page that the times were so vastly different to those listed. Also a bit disappointing that aggressive security started booting people out at 5pm even though it "didn't close" until 6pm. I bought an early bird ticket which was meant to come with a free food voucher, drinks voucher and tiki mug. I got my mug and 'drinks voucher' which I was told could be redeemed for any drink from any vendor however after trying different vendors it was apparent this was only redeemable for a 'sample cocktail' which was essentially shot sized and tiny. I was never given a food voucher. The vibe at the festival was generally quite pleasant and I went with a great group of friends so this helped but it was a shame the event seemed to lack basic organisation, There were no directions from Regents Park station either so I know a few people got lost trying to find it!

This was a very enjoyable event, expertly put together, with a sound stage accompanying band and DJ they even had a guest singer to top it off. Fully qualified mixologist's making cocktails with the locally sourced rums from most of the Caribbean islands from Barbados to Trinidad and all those in between, there was also the representatives from Mahiki Bar there too. The venue was well chosen; Regents Park right next to Regents Park tube station, so as soon as you walked up the exit ramp, you could hear the music, laughter and smell the glorious food. The Spirit of Tiki have a hit on their hands (in my humble opinion), and I cannot wait until the next outdoor event. Me and my friends had a blast. PS. It's not just a drink up Spirit of Tiki are looking to educate and broaden the peoples taste to more than Captain Morgan's, Mount Gay and Cockspur, there's a whole universe of rums out there people and Tiki are trying to show us the way. Well done guys, bravo! Michael visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

I was expecting a few more things to do and see; but aside from the slight tiki theme it was just an excuse for people to get drunk. David visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

Not sure there was enough rum? KIDDING. It was great fun and had an absolute blast. The pineapple pina colada was terrific! The only downsides were the line for the ladies bathroom, could've used more food stalls (the one was running out of food by 1:30pm when we got there) and when we arrived the front desk was very frazzled. There were too many different deals (Groupon, design my night, timeout etc) so some people got a free drink, some got a free tiki cup, some got free food and some got nothing! Very confusing. When I bought our tickets on here it said we would get a free drink and tiki cup. But the guy at the desk didn't believe me, eventually gave me the cup in a huff anyways. Then another couple complained that they wanted a free cup and didn't understand why it's not included in everyone's ticket. But that didn't ruin our day! Had a great time and would come back again. visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

This was great fun, chilled atmosphere busy but not too busy. The drinks were excellent especially the Pina Colada and served in a pineapple no less. All the bars except Mahiki took cash only but they did warn you before you went in. I went for the early bird ticket so got a free voucher token however we wasn't told that this couldn't be used at Mahiki and we found out when we went to pay however the barman done us a good deal...... There was a live band which really added to atmosphere and everyone was joining in. It did say the event was on umtil 6pm however all the bars closed at 5.30pm and they wanted you out by 6pm but no big deal. This was a great day out and I would go again.

A lot smaller than I thought it would be. Atmosphere was a little lacking, not sure if it was due to the weather/small crowd. I might have missed it but a notification about cash only would have been good beforehand. Drinks were good and so was the food. Staff were really helpful. visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 15 Jul 2017

There was NO signage at Regents Park station,so I wasted 20 minutes wandering round the Park asking,only to find it was South of the tube station! On exiting the station,I could NO see Park Crescent road sign because of hoardings. When I did eventually find the venue,the girl on Reception said they were not allowed to put up signs and just gave me tokens for food and drink without explaining. I had to ask again,and was told"Rum Bar"and the blue food tent. However, there were TWO Rum Bars and the first one I tried was incorrect so more wasted time. Then I went for food,only to find there were TWO food tents with different menus. I also only saw ONE stand giving out samples(but when I went there I was ignored). I really feel it was VERY poor value for money. even with the cheaper early Bird ticket, For £14.95,I received food and drink to the value of £9. I presume the rest of the cost was spent on the loud music and entertainment.I feel I should be due some apology and possibly refund. David visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 14 Jul 2017

Very disorganised. Signage was poor to non existent. Food choices limited (only chicken) and they even didn't have rice (and it was on the menu). Drinks were expensive and the quantity small. The music was good. All in all a very disappointing event and we only stayed for an hour Deborah visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 14 Jul 2017

The festival was very disappointing especially for the £20 entry fee I was charged. The area of the festival was extremely small and when sitting on the grass we were asked to move by security due to health and safety?? The music, food and drinks were not Tiki themed in the slightest and the free drinks with the ticket tasted cheap and nasty. The advertising for the night was misleading and the event was a total waste of time and money. visited Regent's Park (Park Crescent) on 14 Jul 2017

I'm new here to London and this sounds like a blast to be had. I would have to say that is definitely a 5-star event to attend. I love rum and have even been to the tropics. beautiful place and rum is to die for if you like that kind of drink.
