I purchased this trip on Groupon and planned a Mother's Day Trip for my Mom, sister and I, and my 2 cousins who are like sisters to me and their mother. We checked in on Friday afternoon. They had plenty of people working at the check in desk and although they were busy the line moved fast. The staff was... More

Went to the time share presentation in order to get cheaper Busch gardens tickets for the family. We were told it would be 90min but it was more than 3 hours. Not worth it for the tickets, they were extremely pushy and unpleasant. Otherwise, the place was fine.

We stayed there one night in mid July. We chose this property because it had 2 bedrooms, so with the pull out couch it slept 6 people. There are 3 pools, the water is quite warm, there was a live band in the evening which was loud, but pretty good music. The 3 little ones we had with us swam... More

Stayed here in March 2016. No problems with check in(they did not pressure us to listen to the time share talk!) Beautiful grounds, flowers, etc. We had a two bedroom 2 bath room on the second floor. It was immaculate!! (I am VERY fussy about cleanliness) Kitchen fully ready to use with coffee, sugar, dish soap, laundry soap, The unit... More

Faded luxury in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed a comfortable two bedroom upstairs condo. It needs updating and renovating but the amenities were great. The indoor and outdoor pool and mini golf course were a little crowded but still enjoyable. If you choose to claim your gift from the Diamond Resorts staff, be warned: the presentation is NOT just the... More

We visited Williamsburg for a wedding and we decide to stay at The Historic Powhatan Resort. I have to say that we did not regret our choice and unfortunately we stay for only a couple of days but we did enjoy it. The resort has everything on the premises. We check in on a Friday afternoon and the lobby was... More

Rented off a private owner but upon check-in (alongside all other guests checking in at the same time), I was subjected to an attempted sales pitch for Diamond properties. Just give me the key, please! Resort was not classy enough, and full of hyper kids everywhere and too many people in general. The unit itself was new-ish, but did not... More

Recently spent a week at this resort in two bedroom unit on first floor complete with patio and chairs, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and washer and dryer. The unit was clean and comfortable and close to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. Also close to shops. 3 outdoor small pools and an indoor pool with mini golf and other activities onsite....

We just returned on Saturday July 23, 2016. It was a perfect location. 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and the Premium Outlets. There was 14 of us so we had 2 units. Beds are a little hard for my liking. Sad they took out the hot tubs. They turned that room in to a sitting room. No air... More

We just spent a week at the resort. I found the grounds to be gorgeous and very well maintained. The activities and amenities are extensive, especially for the price we paid, which was VERY reasonable. They did ask a couple of times about time share pitch and we just said no. It wasn't pressure at all. The pools were nice... More
