Great accommodations for a multifamily stay! We were in town for a big soccer tournament and had extended family come to visit also, and this place made us feel at home. It had enough beds for everyone and bathrooms. It was like a home away home stay! I would definitely recommend this place! Location was close to a lot of...

My family and I stayed here for a week during Spring Break. I would consider our stay average and have a hard time calling it a "resort." Pros: 1. Spacious condo - we had a 2 bedroom, upper level and had plenty of room for our family of 3. They have different "tiers" ranking 1-3. The level 1 has not...

During my frequent visits to Williamsburg, the one thing I always do is give this old stomping ground a second chance. Do they deserve it? Absolutely not! The first timeshare meeting with their representative Madea — Damon, I mean — totally ruined the Diamond Resorts ownership experience forever. Perhaps in a spiteful move, I became a fully vested RCI owner...

The facilities were pleasant and well-kept. The personnel were helpful and responsive to our needs. There are lots of facilities available on site, including an indoor pool not on their website. The entire area, full of historical sites, is easily accessed, however Garmin had a difficult time finding the correct address and location several times.

We've stayed at The Historic Powhatan Resort MANY times and always enjoy our stay. When you drive up, during certain times of the day, there will be a few drummers dressed up in Colonial attire. As others have said, the concierge will offer you a "gift" to go and watch their timeshare presentation. They say it will only be 1...

Last year I planned my annual Auntie Sleepover at Powhatan Plantation for the day after Christmas. It was a great place to have a sleepover for 8 children and 3 adults. Not only was the kitchen area close by, but the sleep sofa gave us three rooms, instead of two and the boys loved being in the room with the...

I chose this hotel based on the availability on Groupon. My husband and I needed a little overnight getaway and the price was perfect. I didn't know what to expect because it was a condo.
