We are here on an 11 day trip and are thrilled at the service and all of the entertainment here. There are four outdoor and one indoor pools, two indoor and one outdoor hot tubs with many pool parties, movies, free mini-putt, tennis, shuffleboard, basketball, horseshoes, racquetball and many activities for kids. The Manor House is a must see and... More

Awesome is the word for this! The pool area has 2 pools; one adult, which they monitor closely for adults only, the other children and families. Cleanliness and grounds awesome! Love the area! First time visiting Virginia. You'll enjoy this. Remember this a resort thus a timeshare option will be offered but it's very low pressure.

We spent a week at this place and loved it. There were gorgeous grounds to walk around and a very inviting pool (especially the adults only pool). The 2 bedroom condo was upper level and we heard nothing from any of the neighbors. We played mini-golf, hung out at the pool, and visited Williamsburg attractions, that were only minutes away.

I've seen quite a few negative reviews about this place, but we had a lovely 4 night stay. Property was light, clean and spacious. Well fitted out. There are indoor and outdoor pools (note the indoor pool also closes in lightning storms - bit annoying), tennis, complimentary mini golf and a kids activity area. Easy driving reach of local attractions.... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, upper level (as suggested by tripadvisor reviewers). We enjoyed the space. Everything we needed for 3+ night stay was ready for us. The coffee I made was terrible for some reason, even with bottled water, perhaps the maker itself produced somewhat chemical tasting brew, not a big deal. There's coffee available on site.... More

The resort is undergoing some transformation due to new ownership. We had one of newer units. Comfortable and spacious. Appliances need updating. Surrounding area will not allow you to be bored. Local to everything. Great experience. Staff was both helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Minutes from Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Less than an... More

My daughter and I took the Ghost Academy tour at Powhatan Plantation on sat. Aug. 23, 2015. The tour consists of a brief history of the Manor house then reported ghosts that are at the Manor house and surrounding grounds. The Manor house is the oldest building on the premises and is over 250 years old. The tour costs $10... More

I'd give this review 4 stars aside from the 'sell' at check in. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids) stayed in the two bedroom upstairs. First The good: - The condo was superb. It was great to have dishes, pots/pans/silverware, a toaster, microwave, dishwasher and all the amenities we needed to do all our meals at the room.... More

not the best, not the best this property is owned by Diamond resorts and they want to sell you a timeshare/points, etc. you can choose to get some good discounts on admission to Busch Gardens, etc. if you go to the 3 hour sales pitch. We saved over $200, so, if you are willing to spend your time for that... More
