I posted a brochure from the OceanHouse here:
Hard to see from the scan, but in the third pic down you can just see the tops of a couple tikis, one just to the left of the stone wall under the palapa and another to the left of the pool. In the movie you catch a breif glimpse of a tiki in front of the lobby driveway. The lobby doors have ships wheels for handles. Not sure what was props and what was part of the hotel. One scene shows an outrigger on the roof.
From the brochure "The OceanHouse cuisine has been acclaimed by world gourmets for the excellence and uniqueness of culinary specialties. This, combined with the Galleon Room's unique atmosphere, makes dining a memorable occaision. Worth a visit all by itself."
"Gasps are the usual response response from a guest's first glimpse of OceanHouse guest rooms. Even these are from another world, for the Del Webb staff of decorators searched the earth for authentic native accessories and seafaring touches to reflect the hotel's overriding nautical theme."
"And while the Tahitian or Oriental motif has come from out of the past, every modern convenience is here for your comfort."
Besides the Galleon Room there was also the Jolly Roger and the Log Room Coffee Shop. In the night shot for the pool area the large tikis are inside the bamboo fence that appears to have a bunch of wood masks or small tikis hanging on it. The painted masks in the movie were by the tennis courts that is not shown (or mentioned) in the brochure.
