We just got back from spending a week here and I have to say the 2BR rooms are very nicely appointed and had lots of space for a family to hang out. The beds were a little noisy but not terribly so. The staff was very attentive if we needed something and the pool facility is absolutely on point. I... More

We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on the second floor on Maryland Court July 11-18. We asked for the second floor because other reviewers mentioned noise from above if you had a first floor unit. Others also said the walls were thin and sounds of others could be easily heard. The second floor was no problem without an... More

We took our daughter and grandchildren for a vacation of the Williamsburg area and looked at this place since we wanted a suite. We were able to get two suites that were side by side which kept us close, but maintained each family's privacy. Great pool for the grandchildren along with lots of activities for children and families. Also, great... More

We had three generations in a four bedroom suite. The setup was perfect for our family. The kids loved the pools. We wish the kid activities were in the afternoon instead of 11am...an hour after the pools open. Parking was a bit tricky if you got in after dark, but we were there at peak time. We enjoyed our time... More

My family had traded our newly purchased timeshare for a FL resort through Interval International to stay at the Colonies at Wiliamsburg 7/11-7/18. We had previously stayed at another resort in Williamsburg and loved it so based on the reviews and photos we thought the Colonies at Williamsburg would be just as enjoyable. Although my family made the most of... More

The condo was well furnished and lacked nothing but it was on the third floor and with no elevators it was hard work taking our luggage upstairs. Reception tried to find us alternative accommodation on a lower floor but the resort was full. No-one offered to help us with our luggage. There is no allocated dedicated parking space for each...

We stayed here with my son and his three children. The pool is great for children and they didn't want to come out. The two bedroom unit was spacious and clean. All of the staff were friendly and were anxious to help us. It was not far to all the Williamsburg attractions. It was also close to many restaurants and... More
