We used two of our Marriott timeshares that were turned into interval to meet for a 40th birthday celebration. We basically stayed here as I couldn't get the timeshares at Marriott's Ford Colony which we stayed at last year this same weekend. The Colonies at Williamsburg is a four year old development. Hence the grounds are very undeveloped. When you... More

I will save the overbearing, misleading description of the "sales push" for the latter part of this review. First, the facility: This facility is fine for a place to lay your head at night, that's all. The pictures representing the facility are misleading. The construction seems only mediocre level with no design flair and no landscape effort other than basic... More

overall, very nice accomodations. Only drawback was that the pool was being serviced during the latter part of our stay which was a mild inconvenience. However, we used the pool at this sister facility. The rooms were very nice, up-to-date and clean

We stayed here once before in September of 2014. This time we were looking for a quiet week away from New York City, snow and cold weather (getting away from NYC was fine. Getting away from snow and cold did not happen. Williamsburg got 6+" of snow during our stay). Therefore, we decided to stay here again. The first time... More

Came here for the weekend and was sad we weren't staying the whole week. Very nice condo and new. Nice pool for the kids. They hung out there for two hrs. Staff not pushy when I declined the free breakfast for their timeshare.

We stayed here the first week of Feb. as one of our timeshare trades. Very nice rooms. Because it was off season not much going on but a relaxing week of doing nothing but shopping and eating. Staff was very accommodating.

When we first booked, we were hesitant about booking here because of something said about this place. I will not repeat it here because I have found it totally false. This is a nicely furnished and recently updated resort. The furniture is fresh and well kept. The carpet has either been recently replaced or is in great condition while not... More

We enjoy Williamsburg and have stayed in many resorts in the area. This villa was very nice and met our needs. Everything was first-class and the location couldn't be beat...around the corner from the Outlets and close to those golf courses and restaurants we enjoy.

My family of 5 stayed during a Trip to Williamsburg. The Condo was spotless, we had everything we needed to feel at home. It had a fully stocked kitchen which made having breakfast so easy! We stayed 12/29-1/1 and never heard a sound from any of the other units. I wish they had more places like this to stay on... More
