We needed at least two hotel rooms for our large family and came across the ad on Hotels.com. The good: Rooms are clean and it is great to get a full kitchen, dishwasher, MW, stove, oven and laundry in our unit. Quiet and secure, the front entrance is gated with friendly and professional security. Grounds are immaculate and you have... More

We decided to take our family on vacation for the first time in 10 years after I found this place on Groupon. Our kids are old enough to enjoy Williamsburg, so this seemed like an ideal place for us to stay, as we could get a condo to sleep all of us without paying for extra rooms, and it included... More

I decided to use my Diamond Resorts points to stay at this Diamond resort because I needed to use up some points that would expire this year and as a mommy vacay. I was surprisingly surprised at how beautiful not only the grounds were but my particular unit. I had an upstairs unit that had been renovated and I will... More

This is a huge timeshare resort situated a few miles outside Williamsburg (you'll definitely need a car). The grounds are huge, and pleasant, with walks, lakes and woods which are interspersed with several blocks of clapboard styled terraced accommodation, on 2 storeys. Our upper level 2 bedroom apartment was very large (although inefficiently planed), with all the facilities you'd expect... More

We did a last minute off season weekend trip and found a nice deal on Groupon for a 2 bedroom. Great price for what you get as they have everything a family would need to include a washer and dryer. Enjoyed the little playgrounds around the resort for kids and personally enjoyed the fitness center for a nice workout. The... More

I had a bad stay here a few years ago via a groupon certificate so I was a little leery of another stay here especially since the nicest thing about the last visit was the beautiful outdoor pool complex! But I was pleasantly surprised this go round maybe because I booked via RCI and had a three bedroom and most... More

While we went in October (so off-season), we were able to get a 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo on ground floor for EXTREMELY REASONABLE price. Full kitchen, back patio with furniture. The resort had mini-golf, movie rental, indoor and outdoor pool, a bar & grill with really yummy food (and kid friendly), plus some historic flair as well. Within easy driving distance... More

If you are trading rci, be advised that you will be assigned to units that have not yet been updated. No shower in master room, only very deep old tub. Our unit was clean but not equipped for 6 people. Being short on dining chairs, bedding and bowls lead to calls to housekeeping, to which they responded quickly. TV reception... More

I have been here many times. I like the property but the rooms are just ok. They have tried to update them a little but they are still old. They removed the hot tubs from the back room so now there is just this weird room on the back of the condo's that's empty. The staff is very nice but... More

Weeks before our trip, I received two separate calls from the headquarters in order to verify our plans. Although they sounded a bit impersonal and like a telemarketing call, the caller was polite and asked if we would need any extra towels or any other assistance. On our arrival, my husband was unexpectedly approached about purchasing a time share property... More
