Not sure why all the bad reviews. We were here in October 2013, April 2014, and are booked again for October 2014.
I suppose first things first: This is a timeshare property. If you booked it as a "hotel" and got a good deal, that is why. If you don't want to hear the sales pitch - then book elsewhere.
We have stayed in both the 1000 unit and the new refurbished 500 building. The 1000 unit was not updated, but had everything we needed. The 500 unit was very nice. Higher end appliances, black stove, fridge, etc. Had no issues with either unit.
I do find it peculiar though, that since Diamond Resorts took over the property, the ratings went from being #12 out of 157 to #25 out of 157.
We love Liki Tiki Village and will keep returning every year.More
