Since we’ve been trying to save up to put as much down on an RV as possible, we’ve been trying to be pretty frugal. No spring break for us! However, Doug’s mother came down from Atlanta for a visit, so we ended up with a little mini-vacation anyway! She stayed at Liki Tiki Village in Winter Garden, and we were happy to spend our days enjoying the amenities!
Liki Tiki Village is a timeshare property, so they do try to push the 90 minute sales pitch, but Doug’s mother told them she was absolutely not interested, so they let her skip it. She booked a one bedroom suite, but they also have studios, two bedrooms, and three bedrooms.
Her suite came with a full kitchen (completely with pots, pans, dishes, and utensils), a washer and dryer, and a nice balcony with a table and chairs. She had a separate living room with a sleeper sofa and two chairs, as well as a dining table with four chairs. Liki Tiki doesn’t offer complementary housekeeping services, but you can pay extra for that.
The big draw for the Liki Tiki Village – for the kids at least – is the water park. The feature pool has a zero entry size with a mushroom fountain (pictured behind the slides below), four water slides, and various other fountains and water features, including a massive volcano.
The other side of the pool has three stair entries and is a constant 3′ deep. The zero entry side does get a bit deeper – two of the slides empty there where it’s over Niall’s head – which meant we had to catch him when he went down those, as the flow of water is pretty strong, too.
We did see some little kids using inflatable rings, so they must allow at least some floats, but they might restrict bigger ones. They do have a kiosk that sells pool noodles and other toys.
For the adults, there’s a bar (pictured in the background below) that serves some food, too. The drinks were okay, but a little pricey. If you re-use the plastic cup they give you, though, they knock a few dollars off the price. There’s plenty of seating – tables in the shade or under umbrellas and loungers in the sun.
Liki Tiki Village also offers lots of other activities, like a game room, free surrey bikes, paddle boats, and mini-golf. There’s a playground with hammocks and shuffleboard. If you want to see how we managed on the surrey bikes and paddle boat, check out our video!
