We traded into this resort and were very impressed. There were so many resort timeshares available here and we are very glad we chose this one. The 2 BR unit was very spacious. It also had an electric fireplace and an outside sitting area. The indoor pool looked really nice but we did not use it. Each BR has its... More

I stayed at The Colonies this summer with my 2 daughters & our dog. We had a great time. The unit was clean & well furnished. The location was great as we visited Water Country & Busch Garden on 5 of our 6 days at the resort. The only problem we had was with the wifi. The signal was weak... More

We were so impressed by the Colonies at Williamsburg. The room was great, the amenities were fun. Our only complaint was that we wished we could spend more time in our room. We had plenty of room for us and three kids. The location was perfect. Close and convenient to everything. We can't wait to go back!

The Colonies was convenient to visit all the areas we wanted to see. It has a large heated pool area and adequate exercise area. We had a 2 bedroom unit and the rooms were nice, with full kitchen and baths. However, I was not impressed with having to launder your own towels (unless you wanted to pay an extra fee)... More

The Colonies at Williamsburg are very nice, and we enjoyed our 2 bedroom Condo. Our cousins belong to a timeshare and they invited us. Our beds were very comfortable, and we had everything we needed.

Three of us stayed in a two-bedroom condo. The place is very clean, attractively decorated with a nice kitchen and living room area, plus a small balcony. There is an indoor-outdoor pool that families with children would love. It was a great spot for us, because it was close to good restaurants and shopping as well as the Williamsburg village....
