My family bought timeshare at this resort way back in the early 90s and we have enjoyed it (and gotten our use of it) ever since. This is like a second home for us. We'll come for a couple of weekend getaways throughout the year and then my parents will usually come for a week or so during the summer. The whole resort is just gorgeous especially in the early spring and fall. Everyone on the staff is friendly and attentive. There are lots of attractions/activities on site for everyone such as: swimming pool (inside and out as well as an adult and kid pools), tennis courts, putt putt, racquet ball, restaurant, and the old plantation house that you can tour. There are plenty of romantic places you can walk to for a little privacy as well.
It can get a bit crowded during the summer months and holidays especially with all the families and kids. Sometimes it can be quiet and other times it can feel like you're at a resort in Disney World. But I guess that applies to anywhere.
Since we have timeshare here, we are also able to stay at Greensprings Plantation just right down the road. I actually prefer the Powhattan Resort over Greensprings. It's much more beautiful and Greensprings looks just like a golf resort.
