Stayed at the Marriott Vacation Club. Ford's Colony itself is a nice conglomeration of upscale and not-so-upscale homes. The Hotel was disappointing. Noisy air-conditioning and rowdy guests in adjoining rooms. Leaking bathroom sink and non-functioning appliance (iron). Bland decor, but not the worst I've experienced. OK value for money.

This review is about the golf course. We have played there several times and love all 3 courses. We did have one problematic round tho'. Our electric cart died on about the 12 hole. No marshals in sight so we had to phone the clubhouse. After waiting almost a 1/2 hour we phoned again. Finally someone came and we stopped... More

This was our first experience at a Marriott Vacation Facility and we loved it. The staff is super friendly willing to help with anything. The units are clean with attention to detail. We had an electrical problem and maintenance was there in minutes to see to it. It was too cold for the pool, but in nice weather they are... More

Attended a wedding here, very good location with a Marriott on site. If you live or want to get married in this area you should consider this location.

Fords Colony is a gated community with a golf course and clubhouse with restaurant. The clubhouse is run by Marriott (they also have a time share on the property) and is open to the public, although there is a members only area. There is a grill downstairs (Harry's) and the food is average at best. The restaurant on the main... More

Besides being a lush and lovely residential community, this is also home to The Manor Club, a Marriott timeshare. This property is stunning with golf courses , tennis and beautiful walking and biking trails. We love it here and are so grateful we purchased this timeshare property! I've always said I'd like to live in this community. It is peaceful... More

However, this day we were behind a couple foursome that I believe we're in teaching mode, finally they let us go through after 12 holes and we finished up in a... More

There are very few place that offer as many things to do and all within a very short drive to a major historic area and a kids park as well. Start with the accommodations, absolutely first rate. The grounds are beautifully kept as are the pools (2 outdoor and one indoor). There are many outdoor games and two very nicely... More
