Elevate your next Orlando-area getaway with a stay at Kissimmee’s Liki Tiki Village. This sprawling collection of well-appointed condos is close to all the Disney and Universal action, with passes to both available through the on-site Florida Ticket Station. You can easily spend your days downtown, exploring the shopping and dining scenes – outlets are also nearby – and experience all the theme-park fun, riding thrill rides, schmoozing with your favorite characters and stepping into the worlds of your favorite movies.
Nights you’ll spend in a one- or two-bedroom accommodation, one of more than 600 on the property. It features a kitchen, living room and dining area, in case you’d like to stay in and eat in. If you feel like stepping out, but not beyond this Diamond Resorts & Hotel property’s limits, order sliders or sangria at Shipwreck Sally’s; hit the tennis and basketball courts or fitness room; try your luck in the arcade-style game room; and play the nine holes of the mini-golf course. And be sure to swing by the pool, as well. With 220,000 gallons of water and a wave pool, waterfall, water volcano and dancing fountain, it’s fit for a Disney prince or princess.

Wash your meal down with punch, sangria or a daiquiri – if you’re feeling particularly indulgent, perhaps even an Oreo smoothie.
Disney? Universal? SeaWorld? LEGOLAND? Whichever brought you here, it’s only a short drive, and you can snag passes through Liki Tiki’s Florida Ticket Station. If you came to Orlando to work on your swing, on the other hand, take advantage of the proximity to local golf courses. There’s also lots to do at the resort, whether you play the nine holes of the mini-golf course, hit the basketball or tennis courts, visit the arcade-style game room, or swim in the lagoon – a 220,000-gallon, one-and-a-half-acre pool, with features like a dancing fountain and water volcano.
How to Get There
This hotel is dirty, I am beyond disappointed. My family owned 2 units at this resort for years but sold them in 2010.
Our original room had such a horrible odor we had to move, the counters were dirty and the previous guests party decorations were still hanging. I did not even want to touch the disgusting phone to call the front. Dirty floors and carpet and the smell OMG
Upon moving to what we thought was a nicer cleaner room the toilet was broken, it was fixed. In the master bedroom used bandaids where stuck to the wall - just GROSS. The tub looks dirty. I hope my kids don’t catch a disease from this place.
I feel like rating this place a 1 is generous.
My family and I stayed at this resort multiple times over the years but we will not return. We haven’t visited in a long time and they now require rubber bracelets that are easily taken on and off (like the fundraiser bracelets worn everywhere) to be worn at all times. Since they’re removable, my smallest child took hers off and misplaced it. This cost us $30 to replace a 10 cent bracelet. We won’t be back unless they can come up with a better system-at least for small children. There are way too many nicer places to stay that don’t nickel and dime you.
Our family of six stayed in the 800 building which we requested. Room was clean, and well stocked for our big family. The front desk and General Manager even was receptive to any of my family's needs. The water park was a blast-this is probably our tenth time we have stayed there, every time gets better. We play on returning this November because of the hospitality we received.
We came with family. We had 2 townhouses. It was obvious the rooms havenât been updated in some time. The carpet was gross with stains. Our dryer didnât work. The hot water in our room was pretty much non existent. The pools were the best thing about the resort. Nice and big for the kids. The slides were great. But unfortunately, they close a lot due to kids throwing up or pooping in the pool. obviously that is out of their control to a degree. However, the life guards could probably manage that a little better. The amenities are great. Putt putt, tennis, bikes, paddle boats, fishing... etc. the bar food was good. No issues. The main problem with the resort is they have a Groupon deal that attracts different crowds and congests the property. One kid about ran over my 1 year old while jumping in the pool like a kid out of control. Again, for a kid, this resort is great. But from a parent, there are some concerns that kids wouldnât notice. Probably wouldnât be back.
I booked a three night stay at Liki Tiki Village on Groupon. We arrived on a Tuesday, a couple hours early. They let us check in and we were given a room in bldg 900, behind which lies the water park. After checking in, we were directed to another counter where the staff tries to get you to attend a two hour session about their time share opportunities. A simple no thank you sufficed and we were on our way to the room. We were on the third floor, right outside the elevator. We had a one bedroom unit. Our suite was sparkly clean and neat. I did not spot a single bug during our entire stay. Our patio offered a fantastic view of the water park. Our plan was to stay at the resort for our entire booking, so we hung out at the water park as much as the summer Florida weather would allow. My son had a blast, as did I, going down water slides like I, too, was a child all over again. There are five slides in total, with a water volcano, wave pool, waterfalls, and sprayers galore. The lifeguards were very attentive in my opinion, stationed in various locations around the park, as their whistles were frequent in the song of their people. As long as you slide feet first, youâre good to go! Shipwreck Sallyâs is the on-site restaurant/bar. The food was what one would expect from such an establishment with fair prices. Most of the employees here are friendly, with the exception of Alex who was simply rude and unfriendly. Upon being requested for drink offerings with a kidâs meal we ordered, he directed my young child to âread the menuâ. Thank you, next, Alex. Every other encounter we had at the restaurant was without incident with friendly staff. My son enjoyed the frozen yogurt robot across from the restaurant. We rode the surrey bikes, which is included in the resort fee, and had a blast. My son played tennis with the most standout employee we came across - Joel. This young man spent his time playing tennis in the POURING DOWN RAIN with my son, and enjoyed it! Joel is amazing with kids, and has such a positive energy and presence. Thereâs also a beach area, boats, putt putt golf, basketball courts, soccer, etc. and all are included in the resort fees. Back to the room now. The walls are thin, and we had a door adjoining our room to the next that allowed for full listening pleasure (or lack thereof) of what was being said in the unit next to us. We spent so little time in our room that this didnât bother us. The window in the bedroom is adjacent to the hallway, so you can also hear all the goings on there as well, including the elevator noises due to our closeness in proximity. Again, not a bother. These are typical expectations in my opinion. The WiFi worked without any interruptions and the cable tv came in handy when Mother Nature decided it was her time to shine. Our room also had a DVD player but we didnât bring any movies along. Our fridge was clean and stayed cold. The AC was blasting and doing its job well. We also had a washer and dryer in unit but we did not use it. Overall, we had a great stay! Other than the one incident at Shipwreck Sallyâs, our vacation was amazing and we will certainly be back in the future.
