My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom villa here for four nights and had a great experience. It was very comfortable for the two of us and had everything we needed. We didn't really do any cooking, but it was convenient to have the refrigerator and microwave for restaurant leftovers. We were able to eat breakfast in the villa and get an early start in historic Williamsburg, rather than search for a restaurant each morning. At first I thought it might be little too far from the historic area, but it was a short (12-15 minute) drive and well worth it. The grounds were beautiful and our villa was quiet for the most part. The last night a family with young children stayed next door and they did make quite a bit of noise, but the kids must have gone to bed fairly early! Unfortunately, we were so busy that we didn't really get to take advantage of the amenities such as the pools, restaurants, or bike rentals. I especially appreciated the special rates being offered this spring for Marriott club members (30% off Sunday through Thursday), so this was very economical for us - and one of the nicest places we've stayed. We travel quite a bit and I would definitely consider returning to this property. It was clean, well-stocked, even a washer and dryer which would be convenient, especially if traveling with young children.

Room Tip: I always try to get a unit on the top floor away from the elevator. Less noise above and also in th...

Beautiful place. We had a huge two bedroom condo with a screened porch. Wooded area. Very quiet. The pools are clean and well-maintained. The staff is extremely helpful. You will definitely need a car. Marriott needs to offer shuttle service to and from the Williamsburg visitor center and other nearby attractions.

Currently visiting with family of four, and impressed to the point that we decided to write review while fresh in our minds.

Having two small children, amenities are perfect, three pools, splash park, kids activity room and bike rental.

Great alaccommodation for the parents....staying in two bedroom villa with jacuzzi, washer/dryer, fireplace, screened-in porch, full service kitchen including Tupperware. Everything is spotless and they attend to the smallest details including dish soap, laundry detergent and everything in between. Would stay nowhere else if returning to the area, and already planning to check out other Marriott properties to plan our next family trip.

Terrible beds for a Marriott.
We were here for a family wedding and the staff was very nice but the beds were horrible for a Marriott and there is no where on the grounds to eat.
The food at the wedding reception was Ok but not great.
My niece in law grandparents belong here so that is why they had the reception here.
We had a good rate for the wedding party.
This is a golf resort and I guess if I was a golfer I would have liked it more.

We visited for a long weekend. The property was nice and what you would expect from a vacation club for the most part. However, the property is very big and most buildings are too far away to walk to most amenities. For this reason we didn't utilize any amenities. The hotel is within a country club community and gives off that type of environment. It is also a solid 15 minute drive to all the attractions. There are a couple restaurants close by (Giuseppe's was amazing!), and the outlet malls, but outside of that you're driving everywhere. Overall, if we ever returned we would consider staying here again, but would also consider staying at a holiday inn or similar that is more conveniently located.

We traveled here in early May, before Williamsburg's tourism season really kicks into gear. As a result, we were able to stay in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa for a very reasonable rate. (Less than $200 a night). Our villa was HUGE and included a nice kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 comfortable bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including one with a huge Jacuzzi tub. There was also a large size living room/dining room area which had a screened in patio.

Marriot did a great job of matching our room request. They sent out an email asking what our priorities were in terms of building choice and floor level for the villa. They have a map of their property and all the buildings housing villas on their main website. It's a good idea to check it out and decide which you prefer as some are closer to the clubhouse, pools, fitness centers, etc.

We chose the Governers Building which was right next to the clubhouse/pool. It also had the kids game room area in its lower level. We were very happy with this choice as it was great for us and our young children with easy access to amenities.

There is a "marketplace" in the clubhouse building where you can purchase food/snacks/Starbucks products. Very convenient and not over priced too badly (to my surprise).

The grounds of the Marriot were beautiful. Several paved trails around the resort/golf course within the Colony community. A small, but enjoyable playground for young children. Also, basketball/tennis courts with a few other games built on for the kids.

Staff overall was friendly. Did notice the occasional lack of smiles from one or two male employees, but never any rude treatment.

The Marriot is roughly 10 minutes by car to most restaurants/grocery stores. Colonial Williamsburg was closer to 15-20 minutes away.

All in all, we really enjoyed our visit, even adding an extra night to our stay. A return trip is definitely likely the next time we visit area.

Room Tip: Be sure to check out the property map on their website so you can pick which building you prefer in...

We had a beautiful one bedroom condo. Our view was the forest. You think you are out in the woods. But you drive five minutes and everything is there. Beautiful grounds. Friendly staff. Stay here you won't be disappointed.
