Overview

Surrounded by the historic sites of Williamsburg, Va., The Historic Powhatan Resort offers the comforts of home on 256 lush acres, including the Manor House, which was originally built in 1735. The resort is the perfect home base to explore this colonial town featuring 18th-century English architecture.

Immerse yourself in the culture of the Revolutionary City and explore the government buildings, houses and gardens. While walking through the city, keep your eyes peeled for flags outside of the buildings to see what is open. When you aren’t busy touring the area, splash around in the indoor and outdoor swimming pools or take the kids to the playground. Guests can also find tennis courts and mini golf on site. The Historic Powhatan Bar & Grille is open daily for breakfast and dinner.

Spread out in 750-1280 square feet of space in guest rooms featuring a partial kitchen with a mini-fridge or a full kitchen (depending on the room selected).

From the press:
  • "Today, Williamsburg's Historic Area is, for all practical purposes, one of the world's largest and best living history museums" -- Frommer's

Pleasant all-around staff; Front Desk, Restaurant, Pool. They ask a few times if you'd be interested in buying into Diamond Resorts timeshare but respect your declining any offers.

Our 2BR unit had a full kitchen and beds were comfortable. TV was standard definition only; not high definition. Has a working fireplace but you have to supply your own wood. 7-11 sells it nearby. We plan on returning again as it's about 15 min from Busch Gardens.

The Travelzoo price on the room. The room itself was nice just a little dated.
Other Comments
Was put off by the constant requests to listen to their 2 hour "presentation" for time share or whatever they're trying to sell. Didn't know when I booked this room that I was going to be subjected to that.

Was able to stay in a lovely condo without having to buy a timeshare.

Would like to stay at this location again - as long as we are not hassled to buy a timeshare.

Nice spot - convenient. Nice having a licensed restaurant on site.

The "Time Share" vibe is never pleasant. Wish I had known. Just puts a downer on things.

Large accommodations for very reasonable price.
Other Comments
Furnishings are always dated here and condos are very cheaply made (you can hear people walking around upstairs) but you get what you pay for! Also you have to deal with the up-selling and time share pitch.

The fact that it was a time share resort which had no interest in joining one. If you had known this we have not book it. When arriving and trying to leave too much pressure in trying to get us to go to a meeting, when we told them more than once we were not interested.

Excellent resort conveniently located and family friendly with outdoor and indoor pools and activities. Only issues was with dated furniture, but not a deal breaker.

Other Comments
The resort was nice but we were quite disappointed to find out it was a TIME SHARE. We wasted several hours of our Saturday sitting through a presentation, and the lines for check in and the check in process were quite lengthy.

loved the size of the suites . very quiet, very comfortable, everything was right there for you. restaurant, coffee house, store, swimming pool even though we couldn't use it due to weather right there on the premises, the suite/ condo was great, large enough and very roomy , very much like being at home which I like. plenty of space which is great.
