First time we stayed at the Colony. Very spacious; kitchen wonderful and full of all necessities. Very clean, especially the bathrooms (that is so important). Plenty of closet space too. Staff helpful in some ways. Thought security could have been more attentive to the guests coming and going. Sometimes, when we walked into the lobby with hands full; the security person made no effort to help with the door. Televisions were not up to "par". Too many stations very snowy. Told staff but nothing was corrected. Nice swimming pool area and very clean along with the changing rooms. Office staff was very helpful and courteous. This place is very nice to have a family together. Parking a bit tight and not able to leave the car there on checkout day to stay at the beach. Also, no additional space for a guest; that is understandable with the limited space. Overall, a very nice place but a bit pricey. However, compared to other places we stayed at a lower price, you cannot beat it. Location great too. We had a lot of fun and this place offers you everything to make the vacation a fun time.

Our unit was large, clean and very well maintained. Currently putting HD tv's in all units. Ours had them in bedrooms but not yet in the living room. This part of Atlantic Blvd. has businesses across the street but the more heavily traveled and nightime area is a few blocks away so easy walk there but don't get all the noise and traffic. We walked to most of the restaurants that we went to for dinner. Well equipped kitchen. We did not hear any noise from adjoining units. No fancy lobby but this is a condo builidng and nice to see that they put the money into the units and upkeep rather than wasting it on a lobby that you only use to walk through.

The colony had mixed ratings so we were concerned When we arrived check in was suiper easy. Lobby by elavotors needed improvements looked run down. then we arrived at the room. Glad we went, room was great. the room was on the 10th floor with great views. Stafff was always freindly and helpfull. kitchen was well eguiped.

resort provided limited information on the unit and startup samples such as diswasher soap.

This place in fantastic! We had room 1004. Our living room and master bedroom have an amazing view of the ocean. It is breathtaking. The unit is HUGE and clean. Beds are super comfy and the place is quiet. I can't find a thing to complain about!

Room Tip: Email them before you get there and ask for a room on the top floors for a great view.

WHAT A LET DOWNNNNN. i rented unit 402 in Nov 2011.... It was georgeous and fantastic....In fact I enjoyed it so much that I bought unit 602...My week is 51 so I took some of my family there.....This unit is spacious and laid out like 402 and faces the oceanfront....We had a great week, horseback riding on the beach, rode thru the lights and just had a fantastic time.....Our let down on the unit I purchased was the carpet and the bathrooms......The carpet was gross. In fact it was so filthy we would not walk on it barefoot....The 2 bathrooms were dirty and looked as if they had not been cleaned......I sure hope the carpet will have been replaced and the unit given a good cleaning by the time I go next year. I really love the location and the activities in the area....People should not have to spend thier vacation on such nasty carpet and dirty bathrooms......Not only was the carpet dirty, but had stains all over it......Sincerely, Elizabeth Tasker Hayes, Virginia.....

Room Tip: Look at unit in advance for condition before renting or buying...Some units are excellent while othe...

Our family has rented there every year for the last five years and it just gets better and better. We have stayed at other places but if size, cleanliness, location and privacy is what you are looking for than look no further. They had just updated the kitchen we stayed in, great mattress in the master bedroom...never slept better. It is located right in the middle of everything. The units are the size of apartments....matter a fact.... it is bigger than my first apartment. Our unit was spotless. The unit we ended up with was 1003 and it was georgeous. It has a fully furnished kitchen (well stocked) with washer/dryer. Flat screen tvs in living room and in both bedrooms. It is a secure building and we always feel very safe. They have a security guard all night on duty. You have to remember that this is a Time-Share not a hotel so there is not a daily towel service.... they do exchange towels twice during the week. It would be nice if the Wi-Fi was free...;0(. We love the ocean at Virginia beach, the city does an excellent job at keeping it up and clean. It is very family oriented and there is a strong police presence which makes you feel safe. Love the 2 mile long board walk. Lots of great restraunts that you can walk to.....you don't really have to use your car unless you want to.

Room Tip: We found after the years we prefer to stay in the middle units so that you can have ocean views from...
