Diamond Resorts has made vacationing at Powhatan Plantation in Williamsburg Virginia, a really great vacation site. I have been going there for more than twenty five years and since Diamond took ownership of the property it has gotten better every year. The staff is outstanding! Especially Cory the front fest director.

Good location for Colonial Williamsburg. Needs new furniture in unit. Resort charges RCI exchangers a fee for use of amenities whether you use or not. OK for central location for seeing area. Do not go on sales tour promised to be only 2 hours which ran for 3 1/2 hours. Next time I will not be as polite. Sales managers aggressive.

This property needs a renovation. The property does not have the quality it advertises. I will say it is truly historic! Historic furniture, historic appliances, historic carpet, historic pop corn ceiling...totally disappointed. The one thumbs up 👍🏽 would be location and comfortable beds. The rest was an epic fail! The kitchen sink clogged, chairs were stained, furniture old and chipped, yellow full dirty walls, bubbles ceilings, old smelly carpet! I would not recommend nor stay here again.

I really enjoy this resort it has great accommodations. My only complaint is check in takes too long. They have 2 people checking you in and 4 people trying to sell you a time share. The units are clean and have everything you could need for a comfy stay.

.We had a 3 bedroom unit that was beautiful. We brought our grandchildren to see historic sites. They enjoyed the pool, and the restaurant was handy when we didn't feel like driving. The resort is located very close to the historic areas. They also have activities to choose from for both adults and children. The grounds are well kept , The Internet was a sporadic, Overall, it was a great trip.
