We are longtime owners with Diamond Resorts and usually have great experiences with their properties and staff. The check in with the front staff went well. The concierge was a different story. She apparently had us confused with another couple with same last name that were on an RCI exchange. She said "ow, Mr.C----- your with RCI " then tried... More

We stayed here one day before heading down to Virginia Beach. I must say, our downstairs apartment unit was great! Had everything you needed, even a deck in the back. In the morning we walked the grounds and discovered that it's a nice well kept property. If ever in the area again, we would stay here.

This is the second time we used our time share Interval International's getaway option to stay at Powhatan. This time the condo was upgraded and was quite lovely. The first time it was clean, but this time it was much nicer. The condo is located in a very nice area with easy access to all the Williamsburg sites. We have... More

I stay at the Historic Powhatan quite often and normally it is very nice. This go round the facility we stayed in was not the greatest. The sofa felt so worn that you feel the bar from the pull out when u sit down. No dish cloth..no spatula...no tv in the master bedroom. It just seem like this was a... More

Our family recently rented rooms here while in Williamsburg to attend a Funeral. The units were nicely decorated, clean and the furnishings were attractive. All our units were the 2 Bedroom Units but located in different areas of the resort. We had some upstairs and some down stairs. I personally like the downstairs units better but be warned that you...

I've been coming here for 25 years. Have loved every minute. From the time you drive thru the gate, you are greeted by security, At check in, and by Maintenance personnel. Everyone is very courteous. My condo is very clean and kept up-to-date. From the furniture to the appliances. The bedding is superb. Linens are great. A restaurant and a... More

We exchanged one of our timeshare weeks to come to Williamsburg in April. The unit was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom unit with a full kitchen. They did try to bug us to buy into the timeshare plan, but we already have one so we politely declined. We also used the washer and dryer in... More

We were somewhat concerned as this was part of a "sampler package" through Diamond Resorts, and although the other ones we tried were not bad, none were really good. This was very nice. We had a two bedroom, handicapped accessible on the first floor. The unit was well equipped with washer, dryer, and dish washer. The unit above us had... More

We stayed in a one bedroom with loft, which was outdated, but clean. The front desk was anxious to have us attend their 'presentation', but we weren't interested in buying a time share. Our clerk took reservations over the phone while we were trying to check in - she just stopped serving us and took the calls. The unit has... More

Please note that my experience is based on paying only $225 for 2 nights in Spring 2015. I am not sure of regular, season rates. We stayed in a top floor 2 bedroom condo. It was clean, spacious, with full kitchen with dishes and appliances. And a balcony with table and chairs for 4! The resort is beautiful with great... More
