“Perfect stay:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

If you are traveling to Busch Gardens/Water Country - this is the place to stay! Nothing else compares to the location, free shuttle, staff, food, and amenities. The kids loved going to the parks in the morning and heading back to the resort in the afternoon for golf, swimming, and water/river activities, then heading back to the parks for the evening. Our family would highly recommend this resort.

Several of my closest girlfriends and I get away for 3 days together each year, usually to the beach. We take advantage of spa properties with pools and other amenities. This year we chose the Kingsmill Resort and were not disappointed. Although our two suites were not next door to each other like we've had in the past, they did manage to book them in the same building so we could easily move our meals and conversations from one to the other. We spent time at the main pool and the lazy river - both nice areas. Bet, the bartender at the main pool was awesome, conversational and kept interesting frozen drinks coming our way. The weather was gorgeous as is the property; well-maintained.
Our sleeping rooms were nice, be sure to request whether you prefer king or double double bed rooms - these are limited so we ended up needing to use the pull out couch (which I'm told was very comfortable). Suite kitchens come with adequate flatware, plates, utensils, etc. Our refrigerator wasn't working on check-in and was promptly replaced.
The small outside restaurant by the golf course has a lovely view. And the property is located on the river and just minutes from downtown Williamsburg where we took advantage of an evening ghost tour with Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Ghost Walk - Leslie is the best guide - request her. It's also close to shopping, and there are convenient grocery stores and Target just minutes away.
If you want to rent a boat, do it in advance; they were booked when we tried on site.

Room Tip: Request double doubles in advance. Any of the buildings are nice and conveniently located close to...

We visited Kingsmill as part of a family vacation. The staff was wonderful. It seemed as though everyone we met was trying to make our stay the best it could be. Every once in a while we would hit a small snag but the staff corrected any short coming immediately and usually above and beyond anything we could have dreamed of. The people that worked on the resort were fabulous. We truly felt that we were special guests. Our room was nicely appointed clean and well kept up. It was particularly nice to have so many amenities available to us and the shuttle worked out great. The pools were nice and there were many activities to keep us busy. You almost didn't need to leave. I would highly recommend this to families and groups that wanted lots of options in one location.

Just returned from a two-night stay at Kingsmill and had a great time! We were in the area for an event at Langley AFB, and Kingsmill looked like it had a great pool (important when traveling with 5 and 6 year olds) and was only about 30 minutes away. It's very, very close to Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, etc. The pool complex with lazy river was terrific! We spent 3 hours there Friday evening and had dinner at the little pool bar, another 3 hours there Saturday morning, and 4 hours this morning. My kids couldn't get enough of the lazy river and tubes and gentle water slide. The service was very good, the views of the James River were gorgeous, and the kids loved getting from our room to the pool via golf cart (which came within 2-3 minutes every time we called for one). Didn't play golf, but from what we saw, it's a beautiful course. Easy to drive off the property for Starbucks for breakfast. Our room was nice - the outside of the buildings looks dated but the inside seems fairly recently renovated. The kids' pull-out mattress was the most comfortable I've ever felt. We'll definitely be returning for another quick get-away next summer!

Short and sweet. The room we had was amazing in size. There was some maintenance in the bathroom with the fixtures that needed to be done but still functional. The made a special shuttle bus run to Williamsburg because we missed the original shuttle. This was just offered by the hotel and was not expected. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it.

I worried this might be boring for the kids, but overall we had a great stay here. The other reviews are accurate -- it's beautiful, the golf is nice, the restaurants were all good, my kids loved the pools and getting ice cream at The Mill. My spa experience was *okay* but I bet it will improve after they open their remodeled location. Our suite was larger than my first two apartments. The friendly staff act like they want to be there -- which is great. The only change I'd make next time is not pay for the Family Fun Package. We never utlized the marina-related activities, and I had to drag the kids out of bed before 10 to go eat the very nice breakfast that came with the package. We've been to the mulitple Xanterra resorts and this one as as good as the rest.

Room Tip: We had a "pond view" which was basically not a view. I might pay extra to get an actual r...
