We stayed here to tour Colonial Williamsburg. The property is nice, but we told the people up front that we were not interested in the timeshare presentation. They did, however, attempt to persuade us to attend even after we said no. The pool was nice, the restaurant needs help both in waitstaff as well as atmosphere.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Great place to stay while visiting Williamsburg; we had a two bedroom with full kitchen; living room and two bath unit on first floor. Plenty of room to relax. Unit was very clean and well decorated. Grounds were beautiful; there was so much to do at resort; you do not need to be at the parks everyday. We played mini...

We visited Colonial Williamsburg for the first time and ended up at the Historic Powhatan Resort by chance. This was a last-minute booking when our camping plans were spoiled by truck problems. However, this led to a luxurious vacation. The resort is beautiful with two-storey town houses spread throughout the large property. Centrally located Rec centre with the indoor and...

The first room we had was mediocre. It was clean but had seen better days. Some items were missing like a television in the second bedroom and furniture on the patio. We had also asked for a handicap accessible room as we were traveling with elderly parents who did not like the idea of climbing in and out of one...

The grounds are nice. Good food at the restaurant. Our rooms were clean and spacious enough for a family. The beds were comfortable. There was a small kitchen and fridge. I enjoyed staying there a couple of days and could stay a week. The courts and pool was in walking distance. Good price for the accommodations.

The room was good enough for the price, but I have received countless prerecorded sales calls from Diamond Resorts trying to sell me other trips. I asked to be removed from the list and the calls continue. Not worth the savings....

Everyone we encountered at the resort was pleasant! We were acknowledged even if staff were just driving past us on golf carts. The grounds were well maintained and the amenities were great. We weren't bothered with any high pressure sales and will definitely go back again!

This is not really a hotel but rather a vacation rental facility that must rent units that are open on hotel websites such as Expedia. One thing I didn't know was that every apartment is two full bedrooms so I could have had my friends stay in the same apartment for one fee rather than two. Secondly, the check in...

This location was top of the line quality property for an inexpensive rate. There were So many activities to keep you busy. And there was no extra charge for them. We have stayed at many locations and this was the best property. We will definitely return.
