Overall, we liked the resort. We're not owners; we traded a time-share week. Convenient to reach, right off a major highway. The area is a unique destination : the "historic triangle" that includes Williamsburg, Jamestown & Yorktown. (My brain hurts from all the history that I observed in a week.) The grounds were well-kept. Plenty of amenities & activities at the resort, but no restaurants. Numerous restaurants in the area, ranging from burgers to fine dining. Good resort & area for families. Our unit was clean with everything in good shape. Lots of towels & linens. Comfortable beds. Quiet at night. Full kitchen facilities. TV, DVD, CD all present. A previous reviewer said that some of the older units looked like military barracks. I was in the military. Drove all around the grounds and did not see anything that resembled military housing, including the maintenance buildings. Now here's our only complaint: the highest high-pressure sales presentation we have ever experienced. My wife & I own several time-shares. We both agreed that we would not sit through another sales presentation because we have no intention of buying more weeks or points. When we checked in upon arrival, we were offerred a "reward" if we would tour the new units and then take part in a survey. We asked if there would be a sales presentation. We were told "no". We asked about how much time would be involved, and we were told there was no time commitment and we could leave if we were not interested. They flat-out LIED to us. There was no tour. There was no survey. It was nothing but a very high-pressure sales presentation. We kept saying "no" and they brought out a tougher sales person. We persisted with "no" and they brought out Ms. Knuckles. There more we refused, the lower the price became. They seemed desperate to sell their weeks. We persisted, and finally she gave up. If you've been to one of these things, you know that you don't get the "reward" if you don't stay until the end of the show. We're not naive; we own the equivalent of about eight weeks of time shares and have sat through many sales pitches. The reward makes it worth-while. However, don't take the bait unless you know what you're going to get into. And that's the end of this rant. We can recommend the resort for many reasons, and if you're interested in a time-share in Williamsburg, this seems like a good deal. We probably would have bought if we didn't already own so many others. Remember this: the more often you say no, the sweeter the deal gets.
