“Perfect for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Everything about this place, from the rooms to the restaurants to the very friendly and efficient service we received, was just right for my family's recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg. I can't say enough good things about this place! Well worth the cost (which is very reasonable when you take into consideration all that the resort has to offer).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We stayed in building 5 on the 2nd floor. Two beds for my husband, myself and our two kids. Nice size room, clean, big dresser and closet and a nice balcony overlooking the pond. My only complaint was that the beds were small and tough for two people to sleep on.

As other reviewers have noted - the walls are paper thin. Fortunately it was mostly families and our neighbors were relatively quiet. The breakfast buffet was really good, but make sure you get there before 9am or you'll wait for a table.

We went to the fitness center, fitness center outdoor pool and lazy river pool. The lazy river pool is occupied by mostly families. We were always able to get a chaise. It also had the bar and pool side restaurant which were both good. It has the music and lively chaotic atmosphere. The fitness center outdoor pool was very peaceful and we really enjoyed it. The fitness center was also nice even though the locker rooms were still under construction.

We ate at Elements and ordered room service. Both were good. The staff in general was very nice and accommodating. We took golf cart and bus rides around. Although we could also walk, it was hot and sometimes just easier to jump on a golf cart. Staff would see us walking and drive over to ask us if we needed a ride.

We took the shuttle to Busch Gardens and the water park. The shuttle was very easy. Nice not having to park or walk a mile to our car. Busch Gardens is really close. We'd hear the fireworks every night at 9:30.

Kingsmill is huge. It's well run and we enjoyed our stay.

I can't say enough good things about this property. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a river view, the location and shuttle bus to the parks was so convenient. The staff was amazingly helpful and kind. We spent a relaxing afternoon at the pool, food was great there and at the landing. We've told our family and friends its a must stay if you ever plan on visiting the area.

This place was by far one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at. It was clean, updated, and VERY convenient to all of the great attractions of Williamsburg (1 mile from Busch Gardens!).

The staff was extremely attentive - they run many shuttles to the attractions which is a wonderful perk. I don't golf, but my husband loved the courses and said everything was well taken care of.

Management at this place was TOP NOTCH. The hotel manager's name is Vichelle and he is fantastic... No need goes unmet. He really went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay, especially for my sister who was traveling with crutches...

Oh, and the food was incredible! I definitley recommend dinner at the spot next to the hotel lobby (Eclipse I think?). Everything was very reasonably priced (even at the pool).

Gym had just about every machine you could want, too.

You won't be disappointed here!! Happy Travels! :)

Room Tip: If traveling with a large group I would recommend renting one of their cottages on the water.

Beautiful resort, great golf courses, close to amusement parks and Colonial Williamsburg. Accommodations and hospitality staff very courteous. Fitness staff not very friendly and marina staff not very helpful. Still a very pleasant stay.

The suites are huge, a great option for family traveling with teenagers that need their own space. This resort has great pools, tennis courts, fishing and etc... This resort also have 3 great restaurants. You don't need to leave the resort to enjoy yourself there.
