My husband and I rented a 2 bedroom/2 bath ground floor unit for our vacation to Williamsburg. When we first arrived, check in was a breeze and the concierge desk was very informative. We requested to be as close to the indoor pool as possible and the front desk was very accommodating to our request. We found our unit with... More

We stayed at one of the two bedroom condos for two nights with friends who had rented for the week. The exterior of the buildings were dirty -- need lots of cleaning. The inside of their condo was clean, except for the carpet which seriously needed cleaning. The furniture was oversized for the unit and drab. The second bedroom was... More

Had a two bedroom grown floor unit and the place was nice and lots of room. Patio off living room. Staff was great and helpful. Nice inside and outside pools. There is a coffee shop and general store at the resort. The grounds are beautiful and we were able to walk to about everything we wanted to do.

As others have noted, the check in process is definitely a con to this location. We had to wait a while to get up to the counter, and then had to wait a while at the counter.

We booked the Historic Powhatan Resort through a timeshare exchange using RCI. RCI told us about the daily activity fee of $10 a day before we booked, so we weren't surprised at check in. We had a 3 bedroom unit and by luck were placed in unit 15-4, which was an easy walk to everything on the resort. There were... More

I started timeshare ownership at Powhatan around 1994 and I have seen the good, bad, and ugly sides of this resort. I came to Powhatan Plantation for a few weeks in August/September of 2016. It was a surprisingly fantastic experience! The unit I had was great. I was in an accommodated unit due to the mobility issues of my mother.... More

We were in a first floor 1 bedroom apartment with everything we needed except the food. It had a full kitchen. From what I understand, the 2nd floor apartments have a condensed kitchen.

Traveled to Williamsburg, Va from New York City for a sibling weekend get together. After a busy traffic adventure we arrived at the resort. Upon entering the gates this resort and layout was just beautiful from the reception, our suite, to checkout was flawlessly presented. Next time in area it's the Powhatan for this family
