Very fantastic resort. Lots of activities to do. The free mini golf place was the place my family was at. The pool was very nice, with one night having a Wii Mario Kart racing tournament. And one night having a live band and activities. WiFi is fast. The rooms are amazing. They are very clean, and you know they are... More

The resort grounds are large, well taken care of and secured by a security gate and regular patrols. There is plenty to do on the grounds. Large indoor and outdoor pool with fitness center. A general store, playgrounds, fishing and lots of planned activities. The resort is located close to Williamsburg and Jamestown. It is a great place to stay... More

My family and I recently stayed here for the first time. We loved the grounds, amenities for families, and the large rooms. The only downsides were the slightly uncomfortable beds and the daily call to purchase another stay (this is a timeshare resort). Overall we would definitely stay here again.

Before I came, I called and asked for ground floor unit twice. Got an upstairs unit, so my knee is now swelled up. I did not ask to be moved, because we checked in at 9:00 PM and exhausted. The front desk staff were nice and friendly, but the people who I called to ask for laundry detergent and dish... More

Went with some college friends for a reunion. We took over two condos and enjoyed ourselves. Beds were comfortable, sleep sofa, not so much. Kitchen well stocked. Pool was perfect! They have one for adults only and that made it even better. Got a massage, Skye was a real pro! Food at the Grill was not outstanding, but all in... More

We arrived Monday 15th with my sister, her husband and my niece. We registered at the front desk and it was very quick and they were helpful. I read a bunch of reviews on here before I checked in, so when the front desk directed me toward the concierge... I just didn't go. They try to sell you a timeshare.... More

Beautiful grounds, a section of condos under renovation, great outdoor pool. The upstairs 2 bedroom was fine. Superb bedding, nice bathrooms, adequate but dated furniture and kitchen amenities. The Rec center and indoor pool are dated and in need of revamping. Excellent massage from their RMT. Minor maintenace issues dealt with quickly. It is a time share - be prepared... More

We came to stay here with our 6 & 9 year old for a week. We stayed in unit 49B. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The concierge people were a little pushy in trying to get you to come to sell you a timeshare but we simply just said no. We were surprised at... More
