Nice quiet resort when visiting area. Pools where clean kids loved both indoor and outdoor pool. When you check in they will try and get you to do orientation to sell you a slot in the time share. Just tell them you busy and they will not bother you.

We stayed at this resort for a week in late August. The resort has all you need for a great family vacation. Close to all the attractions. 3 outdoor pools, 1 indoor. Activities for the kids. Friendly staff. All that was great. Now, the accommodations review - our hotel unit was clean, and well kept, however, I CHALLENGE THE MANAGEMENT... More

My overall impression of this resort can be summarized in one word, "tired". I am a DR owner and used a "free" trip from a points purchase on this trip. Stayed in building 26, unit 78B. DR recently purchased this property and it has not yet been "diamonized" so, perhaps in a few years things will be different. This was... More

We were impressed with the fast check in and this resort, even though we came in late (arriving past ten p.m.) we were greeted with professionalism and kindness. The accommodations were spacious, having a fully stocked kitchen, living room/dining room combo area and breakfast bar. It looked like they were in the middle of re-doing a room in the back... More

Visited this resort with my teenage daughter on a weeklong journey in Virginia. We spent three nights on this property. Arriving at the property, we were suitably impressed by the friendly gate guard, and lovely grounds. As we got to check in, we were also happy with the speed of the process, but then were referred to a 'concierge' for... More

We apologize that your recent visit to The Historic Powhatan Resort failed to completely meet and exceed your expectations. While it appears you had a pleasurable time at our resort, and found our team’s hospitality and manicured grounds to be noteworthy, it would seem our accommodations and facility left you with something to be desired.

This Resort had everything for 15 adults and 2 kids. Outdoor Pool with Movies at nite. A road to walk with DUCKS all around. The Units we stayed in had 2 bedrooms with a living room, dining room & Kitchen. We enjoyed the rooms but also the closeness to Williamsburg and all it's attractions. We feel close but not too...

Our family of 4 (kids ages 7 and 9) stayed in a two bedroom condo over labor day weekend. We found the place decent enough and suited our purposes well, but it is important to have the right expectations. The location is convenient for Busch Gardens and Williamsburg; the condos are spacious; the services are proficient and the price is... More

We are RCI owners and use timeshares around the country. It's what we expected and liked the proximity to all the places we wanted to see, and eating establishment we wanted to try. We weren't disappointed. They do a great job here. We were basically here to sleep and didn't use any of the amenities. The pool looked busy during... More

Poolside is nice and drinks are good. Timeshare is tired, and they removed the hot tub without any kind of break on maintenance. The drum and fife corps were perfunctory. There is untainted trim on many of the buildings.

We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our relaxing pool area and enticing drinks. This being said, we regret that you did not agree with the majority who chose to remove the hot tubs. We will certainly look into your feedback, and we wish you all the best on your future travels. More
