The woman who checked us in was more interested in chatting with her coworkers than us. Sometimes I wasn't sure if she was talking to them or us. After checking in, we discovered the unit had no blankets on the beds. So we called the front desk. They promised immediate response. After 45 minutes and no blankets I walked over to the office and asked if blankets were difficult for them to supply. After about an hour we got blankets. The blankets were left in front of the door and no one bothered to tell us, so it took us more time to realize we had a blanket. It also looked like the cleaning staff went home without finishing their job. The unit was clean, but there were bags of toilet paper and cleaning supplies littering the lawn in front of several units when we checked in at 5pm. They were only picked up when staff finally delivered the blankets.

The outdoor pool is nice and our kids had a good time but the units lack attention in the area of maintenance. The heavy light fixture above our dining room table fell down on the table one evening and almost hit me and my wife and also damaged our new labtop. Light bulbs which were from 2017 kept flickering and had to be replaced. The resort does not even offer timeshare owners the courtesy of towel exchanges. when i called i was told io would have to either keep washing them or pay for a towels exchange.

We are sorry for the issues you encountered during your stay. We strive to provide excellent customer service to all of our guests. Surely, if the light fixture fell, we hope you advised the front desk. At least you and your wife are not injured. We apologize for that maintenance incident. We wish you better future vacations.

Pool was nice, large and kid friendly. unit was clean but showing wear on furniture. The resort is missing a opportunity to have a good walking path around the property.They only cut the grass next to the road leading to the entrances to the units. they need to at least cut the grass next to the roadway. Location is very convenient.

I would rate this as one of the top resorts we have stayed in. The unit was spacious, well laid out and so clean. Everything in the kitchen was in perfect condition. The furniture was great too. The bathroom set up worked so well. If you have children, you'll never get them to leave the fun outdoor pool area! Perfect location to explore all the historic areas. If you like to shop, the Premier Outlet Mall. Is very close by.

My family and I arrived at the colonies at the check in time of 4pm. The line was long but moved well. The unit was clean and roomy. However it was very dusty and the furniture was showing signs of excessive wear and tear.

Four couples recently stayed for a week of golf. Our 2 bedroom condos were clean and well equipped. The location was great for golf and restaurants. Shopping at the outlets was just up the street. Nice pool area, a great place to relax and cool off. Would stay here again.

The resort's landscaping is excellent, the pool and amenities are very inviting for the entire family, the 2 bedroom suite was spacious and very comfortable. The central location to a lot of historical sites was perfect. We would definitely go back to this resort.

The Colonies is a small resort, with great amenities and very friendly staff Both swimming pools are very unique. The kids had lots of fun! The resort has many activities, like pottery painting, which are very nice and very reasonable priced. We really enjoyed the resort.
