I have stayed at many different hotels and timeshare units in Williamsburg This 2br unit had a contemporary flair to it The usual colonial flair wasn't there The only thing that could be upgraded was the living room furniture it appeared to be worn and a bit dirty for the price of room otherwise everything else was great Bathrooms were...

My husband and I stayed here March 28-April 4th, with our 18 mo and 6 year old daughters. We stayed in Unit 101B near the back of the property on the 1st floor. The staff here were all very friendly and pleasant. The unit was so nice and kept very clean. It was much larger than we expected and has... More

What's not to say that isn't great about this timeshare property. I will start off with the properties location. It's perfect. 5-10 minutes from all local dining, shopping, outlets and all the great historic places offer in Williamsburg. The property is really nice with a great pool, playground and tennis area. Po is open later than most which is nice.... More

We recently spent a week athe the Colonies at Williamsburg and were pleased with the accomodations. We had a two bedroom unit, (although we only needed one). The two bathrooms did come in handy. The fully equipt kitchen was great. Just about anything you needed to prepare a meal was supplied. The unit was very clean and the linens and... More

Unlike any fractional ownership resorts, I have ever visited. Check in was seamless, Lodean Howell, was helpful in advising us on local food establishments and area attractions. No pressure to attend a sales pitch session. The indoor recreation area and pool, were spotless, well stocked for rainy day activities and the recreation staff of nick and Alaina were second to...

The unit was nice, but when the internet went out we were told only that the system was getting an upgrade and that they didn't know when it would be finished. When I complained I was told that after all the internet was provided free. Since this was a working vacation, this pretty much ruined it for us, and the... More

Bought a week through Interval for a great rate. Highly recommend this location. Very clean with laundry in our two bedroom unit. Close to all the attractions and shopping. The indoor pool was a plus with the kids. We would stay there again.

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
