Overall, we had a very nice three night stay at the Colonies (wish it was longer). We stayed in a two-bedroom unit, and it was gorgeous! Very spacious, clean, and comfortable. You can also get a four-bedroom. The indoor and outdoor pools are very nice. The outdoor pool is like a mini waterpark. Nice tennis courts, also. Great location: right... More

We rented a 2 bed/2 bath unit for a week. The unit itself was wonderful. There was lots of room to spread out for the entire family and it was quiet and immaculate. We enjoyed one day just sitting by the pool. The 2 pools, one outdoors and one indoors, kept the kids entertained for hours! The location is also... More

We agree with the majority of the Trip Advisor reviews - our accommodations, the pool, the staff, the proximity to area attractions (as well as restaurants, grocery, shops, essentially EVERYTHING you would need) were first rate. Keep in mind that, even though there are some enjoyable activities on site, this isn't a full-fledged resort such as Disney, Marriott, etc. -... More

We stayed here so that we could spend time with our 4 year old grandson! We had a two room condo which was spacious and comfortable for us and allowed him to have his own room! The pool at the resort is amazing! Almost the entire thing is barely over 2 ft which allowed him to enjoy the slides without... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. Our 2 Bedroom Condo was immaculate and updated and very spacious for my husband and our 2 boys. It was fully stocked with everything you'd need for kitchen use and even provided laundry detergent for the in unit washer and dryer. We were in the newer units (according to the front desk clerk) and... More

Was very pleased with almost everything. Good space for our 2 kids and my wife and I. Excellent kitchen, appliances, comfortable beds and living room furniture. Good customer service at front desk and concierge. Also great pool/splash pad for the kids. Bonus was it wasn't a far drive (hr or so) to VA Beach, which was important for us. Gorgeous... More

I have a family of 6 so staying in standard hotel rooms does not work for us. We booked this place thinking that we would get some extra room and make our stay a little more comfortable than in a typical hotel. This place was outstanding for our size family. The rooms/suites are very spacious and comfortable. It was so... More
