I can see why there are good reviews. The condo was nice, the view was great, location was great. But if you have any problems, the staff and property manager are plain rude. I suspect they operate that way on a regular basis and continuously get by with it. We had problems with parking and there first reaction was to... More

I read the numerous reviews and decided that, despite an occasional negative one, the size of the unit and amenities offered at the Colony Resort were worth giving the place a try. I was impressed in every way. The location is great. Our unit had been renovated, with tile flooring and area rugs in all rooms. The "beach" decor was... More

The Christmas Holiday was elevated with views of beach and at night Christmas light display were very entertaining. We had 3 generations and everyone wants to return next year.. Unit was clean and attractive. Renovations going on within building... More

This time share property is on the beach and they think this allows them to completely ignore customer service. We stayed at this property the last week in October 2014. First they make you sign some type of warning about bedbugs when you check in. Gross. Even worse after checking out they call us and tell us we have to... More

Everything was amazing about this place. Prices are fair, rooms amazing, view spectacular, all staff was amazing! Especially the security officers there! Place was very clean and the maintenance guys were on point with any needs we had. Will come back again and have recommended this place to all my friends.

I've been going to The Colony since 1978 and an owner since 2006. Overall the facility is maintaining a general good state of repair. Some areas show wear but the beach and high traffic will do that. Overall the stay was great. Unit 201 was like I remember it with an addition of a portable AC in the front to... More

We are here for a wedding and could not be more pleased with the resort. Units are huge, ocean front, full kitchens, washer dryer. our unit was beautiful. There was some outside construction going on and we had to shuffle our car around which was a pain ...., but not to bad. The lobby is gorgeous and they have already... More

I just read the other reviews and given my experience, the good is true (updated kitchen and mattresses, incredible views and location, helpful staff, large rooms) but so is the bad (carpet, furnishings, towels and shower/tub sticky, dirty, grungy - just desperately in need of a thorough cleaning). But bottom line, any resort whose check in includes the words "we... More

This last week was our third trip too the Colony. We go with a friend who has a timeshare there and have really enjoyed each visit. Lots to do around Virginia Beach and surrounding areas. Some of the furnishings need to be up dated for instants the sofa. We will go back again given the chance. We love to and... More
