Reviewed September 2, 2012

We love the putt-putt and the gem-mining, but our favorite part is the milk-shakes and flavored coffees. This place truely has something for everybody.

“All ages will enjoy it”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We visited Lilly Pad Village on a Sunday, soon after opening. It did not take long before more visitors showed up. Our teenage girls enjoyed gem mining and our hostess (one of the owners) was very helpful to ID the gems. Mini golf has 9 holes, but they allowed us as many rounds as we wanted. This is not your beach-side mini golf with all kinds of clowns and water falls. It's nestled among the trees but was relaxing and enjoyable. We had a picnic lunch next to the pond and enjoyed watching folks try their hand at fishing. Owners live on-site, so you can tell they take extra care with the property.

“Had a Fun Time”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had a great time at this little bit of adventure. My Wife, daughter, son-in-law, and myself had a blast. The golf was a lot of fun. Short but challenging. But the Gem mining was a real treat. Both my wife and daughter found some keeper stones that will make a great necklace. Gez, the owner, was right there the whole time telling them what stones were keepers and what were not. The owners are very nice and the afternoon was delightful.

Thank you for the great review! We very much appreciate that you took time to comment on the Lilly Pad! Next time you are back, we would love to see the necklace you made out of the gem you found here - some pictures would be awesome also :-)

Say hi to Naples for us ... I still miss some of the places and people.

Thanks again, and see you on your next visit.

“Great place for kids”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Took my two sons and niece - they all had a blast with gem mining. Owners put a lot a thought in the set up and was very helpful and accommodating. It started to rain during fishing - owners offer shelter, rain jackets and umbrella to help and provided weather updates. Fishing was a nice experience for the kids too.
