“Wonderful Again”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Second time to the Colonies at Williamsburg. I concur with all the outstanding reviews! Nicely decorated, very clean, and all amenities you would need. Staff was nice, no sales pitch here so I was grateful for that.
I would recommend not staying in rooms 1-24 if at all possible although they are close to the pool and the playground. There's a security booth when you pull into the property and they have a police scanner type radio going all night long It would have been nice to open the windows and let the fresh air in due to the beautiful weather, but with the radio noise the windows remained shut.

Room Tip: See above for what rooms to stay away from.

First time stayed at this particular resort. Come to Wmsbg twice a year and have stayed at most time share resorts through Interval. This is one of the newest and nicest! Beautiful two bedroom two bath unit. Modern furnishings. Sparkling clean. Quiet. Free wi-fi. Flat screen TVs. Electric fireplace. Grills. Pools with kids slides and waterpark. Free DVD rentals. Very nice. Highly recommend. Close to everything. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: I always go for top floor if you can do the stairs. Much more quiet.

Excellent resort brand new we stayed in a 2bd and 2ba unit which is all they have or a 4 bd lockout. Very luxurious kitchen stainless appliances granite counter all necessary kitchen utensils
Big club house and indoor and outdoor pool went in oct. so outdoor pool closed but hot tub open outside. Nice indoor pool. Work out room small but functional. Nice staff very friendly and competent check in was a breeze. Small problem with screen on patio door was fixed promptly and correctly. Unit was very clean had hdtv in bds and living baths were well taken care of all towels necessary were there plenty of bed covers and extra. Nice small patio on ground floor.
Quiet and plenty of parking right by unit good security needed to go though 3 locked doors to get into my unit. Good sound proofing. Would definately stay again. Only drawback was the timeshare people chasing u but I am used to that and they took no for an answer that was a surprise lol. Very close to many restaurants and attractions plenty of shopping nearby grocery was on corner of main street 2 minutes to drive to.

The resort is lovely and kept to a high standard. All the staff were very polite and friendly. The building we stayed in was lovely, and you never heard a sound from anyone else or the construction. It has everything you need, and is also situated close enough to get to restaurants, shopping malls etc. I loved it here and my stay in Wiiliamsburg.

The suite was very nice. Two bedrooms, two baths, living room, dining room kitchen. One bath with jetted tub, one with large shower. Nice decor. Convenient to all attractions. Quiet. Only minor quibbles on amenities. Many timeshares I have stayed at replaced towels daily or every other day. This resort charged extra to replace towels. No one entered our rooms for anything during our stay. I didn't mind making my bed, but my daughter felt like on vacation she liked to be spoiled. Other resorts we had stayed at did make the beds and clean up a little, take out the trash and replace towels daily. If that's what you like, you may miss it here. I would stay here again.

We just left this resort and were very happy with the accommodations. The suite was clean and nice. It was quite new and met all of our needs. My husband is on crutches so I requested a first floor room. There are no elevators. The disadvantage of the first floor is that you share a washer and dryer with the neighboring suite. The places on the second floor each have their own.
We are not big history bugs so much of our time was spent at the nearby outlet mall or relaxing by the pool. The outdoor pool has lots of chaise lounges and tables. We were often the only ones enjoying the area. The water was quite cold but the indoor pool was very comfortable.
People at front desk were nice and they had DVDs that could be signed out. There is construction but we were never bothered by it.
We would certainly stay here again.

My wife and I just returned from here and I have to say one of there nicest places we have stayed. The staff was very kind. They were building but we heard nothing from the construction. Nicely located near shopping. The unit was VERY clean and stocked with everything you need. As far as the sales pitch, we never pick up our "welcome package" or free gift so we never get cornered about buying. The only bad thing is the sales people did call the room a couple times but once we told them no they stopped and the balcony is a little small and the view is bad. but the appliances and tvs and we had our own washer dryer. I would stay here again anytime.
