"Enjoyable stay!"
July 2019
Family friendly place to stay while visiting the Williamsburg area! Lots of space for the price, and possibility to cook with the small kitchens. Walls are thin though, in case you get little ones next door like we did. Kids enjoyed the amenities, and definitely would stay again!

"Christmas Vacation"
December 2018
This was our first Christmas vacation at Powhatan Resort. We loved our cozy 2 bedroom condo. The restaurant/bar on site was amazing. We ventured out to see all the beautiful lights at Christmas Town that was near by. To top off our stay, we woke up to snow on our last day. As a mother it meant a lot to have my grown children with me for a weekend trip. This will now be a family tradition. I have already marked dates on my calendar for next year.

"Nice, but hidden costs."
June 2018
This hotel was very nice, the in-room laundry was a nice addition. Plenty of activities for the kids. They were a pushy with their time-share program. Their resort fee was more expensive than what was listed on my print out from Reserve Williamsburg.

Tip: skip the coserige table--that's where they get pushy about time shares and want all kinds of personal info. Check in was a long process.

"Great Vacation!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 26, 2020 NEW
We did have an issue with the initial reservation, but that cleared up with RCI. There was a sales pitch but not as bad as some places we have stayed before. With all that being said,we throughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was extremely spacious, very clean and we had a sunroom on the lower level and an upper patio deck which was great to eat outside in the early mornings. The location to Busch Gardens, Water Country and all the historic sites such as Jamestown was just minutes away. There was plenty of restaurants and grocery stores just minutes away as well. The resort was wonderful, so much to do, and the mini golf was a big hit as was the pool and planned activities. I would definitely stay there again.

"Stole Items"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed May 12, 2020 NEW
We stayed here for 2 weeks in April from the 3rd to the 17th, 2020. Upon checkout we discovered my son had accidentally left his Nintendo Switch plugged in by sofa. I called and was switched around and finally talked with someone who told me nothing was turned in. They sent me a form to fill out in which they would send someone to look and could return item to me. Needless to say....they kept it and never got in touch with me again. So, double check your belongings and don't let housekeeping or anyone in while you stay there. You might lose expensive things as they obviously have a thief on staff. I have stayed several other places around the country over the years. Kids forget items from time to time, but I ALWAYS was called back and at least given the option to get items returned. Most of the time I just had to pay for shipping, but not here.

BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS. If I could give this place a lower review I would!!!! Yes, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Those are indeed BEDBUGS!!!!! My family and I stayed at what initially seems like a beautiful two bedroom villa. I was warned to spray everything down before hand but I didn't listen because at a glance everything looked clean. It was our second day about 2am and I couldn't sleep for whatever reason. I was up watching videos on my phone when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. A little bug. I was unsure of what it was so I began my google search. Maybe an hour later there came another one. Now I begin to freak out because this one is bigger. I woke up my sister that was sleeping next time to find tow more under her. In totally we found about 7 bed bugs jus crawling into the sheets/pillows/bed. Now this happened early September 2019. When we contacted the necessary personnel, they switched our rooms and gave us the information on how to clean and decontaminate our belongings. My sister booked our stay using Sundance/Planwithtan and we were told by both Powhatan Resort and Sundance/Planwithtan that we would be reimbursed for all that was spent. We have been trying to get in contact with a customer service rep/supervisor to get the full refund we were promised. Our compliant should have been handled from months ago but we haven't heard anything back. DO NOT BOOK WITH THESE COMPANIES BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT HONOR THEIR WORD WHEN ISSUES OUTSIDE OF YOUR CONTROL OCCURS. BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS. BEDBUGS.
