Editor’s Review of Liki Tiki Village

As long as you know what to expect at this sprawling Diamond Resorts International timeshare resort located a few miles from Orlando's theme parks, Liki Tiki Village can be ideal for a family vacation in Central Florida.

For starters, the Kissimmee property's name might be Polynesian and the website waxes on about a Polynesian theme -- but don't come here expecting anything along the lines of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Set on 64 acres, the 638-condo property of one and two-bedroom units that can be connected to sleep up to 10 people doesn't have much in the way of Polynesian design going on. Sure, there are a few thatched buildings near the pool areas. But it's really about the location and pretty setting here, as the resort
... more is by lakes and with lots of things for families to enjoy. Among the onsite activities are two pools and a water park, mini-golf, tennis, basketball and a lake with paddleboats to go exploring.

Built in 1987, Liki Tiki Village was bought by timeshare company Diamond Resorts International in 2012. And while many of the guests are spending their timeshare weeks here, plenty non-timeshare guests also book in for an affordable stay close enough to the theme parks to be convenient (Disney World is just 7 miles away) but a bit removed from the fray.

The gated property is lined with sidewalks, giving access to the three main pool and waterpark areas, as well as the harbor area by the lake. South Village Oasis is where you will find the main swimming pool, fitness area and outdoor grills for family barbecues. And regularly scheduled events and activities organized around the property include things like karaoke, beachfront mixers, bingo and more.

After a busy day at the theme parks, however, what you and your gang might be most excited about at this property is getting back to spacious digs where you can cook your own food, watch a movie on the DVD player and rest up for another day back at it at Disney, Universal Orlando or SeaWorld. less

The resort is great for families and I loved the layout of our 2-bedroom unit. The room just felt a bit old and outdated. In the end, we had a great time. I just wish the beds were a bit softer, the carpets were a bit cleaner, ...

With some 638 condo-style accommodations spread between three areas on the property, Liki Tiki Village feels like just that -- a village. Your room will either be in the two-story townhouse style buildings (with no elevator), or in the highrise buildings. And you can request resort views or else views onto a neighboring wooded area. All accommodations have either a patio or a balcony to walk out on and a full kitchen stocked with all cooking equipment including toasters, blenders, coffeemakers and more (stoves, ovens and full refrigerators, too). All units also have full washers and dryers to make it easy to keep everyone in fresh clothes despite a sweaty day at the theme parks. Renovations are ongoing throughout the resort, and while upgraded bedding is standard in all condos, the décor is still dated in some. If looks are important to you, be sure to specify that you want an updated room. Cribs and rollaway beds are available upon request, free of charge. First-floor ADA rooms are available and must be reserved in advance.

One-Bedroom Condos
The smallest rooms here are complete one-bedroom condos that can sleep a maximum of four people. These rooms have a queen size bed in a separate bedroom, a full kitchen and a living room area with a flat-panel TV with a DVD player. The dining room table, just off the kitchen, has four chairs. All of the one-bedroom condos are found in the high-rise building.

Two-Bedroom Condos
Two-bedroom condos (1,000 square feet) sleep up to six people. They have a master bedroom with a king size bed and separate bathroom with a shower and tub, and a second bedroom with two twin beds and a full bathroom in the hall. There is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room to sleep an additional two people. Two-bedroom condos are found both in the town home configuration or in the high-rise building, so if you have a preference, be sure to make that known when you book. There is also a full kitchen. And there are TVs in both bedrooms and the living room, where there is a DVD player, too. A separate dining area has a large table with six seats and there is additional bar seating in the kitchen.

Connecting Rooms
As many as ten people can be accommodated in Liki Tiki Village's most spacious accommodations, which have three bedrooms and three separate baths and are, in fact, a combination of the one and two-bedroom units (with a connecting door). In this layout, the master bedroom has a king size bed, there is a queen size bed in another bedroom, and two twin beds in the third bedroom. This layout has two living areas, with a queen sleeper sofa in each. You also have access to two kitchens and two washer and dryers between the two units. Another option for connecting rooms is the two-bedroom deluxe layout, which links two one-bedroom condos by a connecting door.
