Not bad, but sorry we bought...from MonsterRain
First of all, I don't like the fact that you can't exchange a week and use it at other Williamsburg area resorts, but whatever.
Check-in is always quick and convenient.
Staff was mostly helpful when we needed them, mostly with directions and information.
When we bought (it was actually our 2nd time getting the pitch, which we fully expected because we were looking to buy), our salesperson was actually pretty cool, even before she knew we were going to buy. Whether that would have changed if we said no, who can say.
Most things worked, I don't think we've needed to call maintenance the two times we went.
The first time we went we didn't do an exchange or anything, we had a sales deal, but we decided we wanted to stay an extra night- they gave it to us for free.
Indoor pool was good, but we went in May before the crowds arrived so it wasn't too crowded.
Some minor attractions actually gave us a discount because we were with the timeshare (Rosy Rump's Regal Dump, which is a lot of fun!).
Jacuzzi tub in the room is nice.
Park right outside your door.
Furniture is mostly comfy and clean.
We got suckered into a 3rd pitch (our 1st since buying), saying it was a "owners meeting" and we thought the guy was a jerk so we weren't going to upgrade even if we wanted to. (Why do they have to lie about these things?). Either way, we got a couple of free meals out of it and they weren't bad, so that was nice.
Almost no amenities on-site. No restaurant, no bar. Gym and pool are used by locals, lounge is full of timeshare salespeople (who don't share their Krispy Kremes when they are giving you a sales pitch *ahem* :-))
Furniture is comfortable and clean, but not prettily decorated.
Upstairs units don't have full kitchens, which could be annoying.
Large bath with his&her sink, jacuzzi tub, etc, was located next to the 2nd bedroom, which is a weird layout.
Beds are a little uncomfortable (low quality, old and worn maybe?).
Shared washer and dryer between 2 units in not a good thing.
All-in-all, I wish I bought it on the resale market. Plus, I would have probably bought a different Williamsburg resort.
It's an ok resort, but not worth the price.
Owner review.from A TripAdvisor Member
p.s. My unit is still for sale...VacationRegister and they are just as bad of a RIP OFF. DO NOT use them to buy or sell your timeshare. They charge your credit card and then you never hear from them again.
Resort with potentialfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff was not welcoming. They seem annoyed when asked questions (i.e what videos are available , directions to church, etc)
The units are spacious but confusing. The master bath did not have a hair dryer (the second bath did)
The in room safe did not work and was located in the second bedroom as well. The second bedroom had a television (master bedroom did not)
Dining room is huge!!! But kitchen only has portable burners and microwave.
Only one pool available for entire resort- too crowded most of the time- no lounges or chairs available.
With some improvements- this resort could be outstanding!!
Excellent place to relaxfrom bratinola
The condos were brick faced, red doors, beautiful landscaping. The grounds were very nice. The back sides of the condos are very plain, but certainly not "ghetto" like. The interior, although a bit on the small side for a two bedroom resort condo, was absolutely beautiful, and exquisitely decorated. I did wonder though if the room we got, was a goof-up. The master bath was huge, with a jacuzzi (not just a jetted tub), a shower, his/her sinks, and seperate toilet room. But this bath was off the room w/two twin beds!!! (We just pushed them together.) My mothers room had a queen bed, but a normal sized bathroom, and the safe was in her room!! Was almost like they put the wrong beds in the wrong rooms.
I will admit, the resort staff was a little short with us upon check in, but they were very busy with a full lobby. However, any and all questions/problems encountered during our stay were taken care of very promptly, and courteously. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone.
Satisfactory but not what I would consider a resortfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The unit we had was clean and spacious and had a small patio with a nice view of the trees and a play area, but the unit was not fancy nor particularly charming and the lay out was a bit peculiar. The units are set up as a downstairs "a" unit and an upstairs "b" unit - almost like seperate condo's - each with two bedrooms. The "master bath" was attached to the kids room and was accesible from the living room - the "master bedroom" was small and had a smallish bathroom. There was a large T.V. in the living room and small t.v. in the bedrooms - but I could not figure out a way to activate the parental controls to restrict access to programming which was unsuitable for childred.
The kitchen in our "b" unit lacked a cook top, oven or cooking ventilation system and the counter was dominated by a very large microwave, and was thus inadequate for anything other than basic cooking on the supplied electric griddle and portable electric burners. (I should have cooked those burgers outside). I was informed that only the "a" units could legally have a full kitchen. (I did hear a complaint from one guest that her unit had nothing more than a small bar sink and a microwave cart.)
Our unit had an electric fireplace which was a bit cheesy for me, other units apparently had gas or wood fireplaces.
The "club house" and gym were of little use to us because they seemed to be primarily used for time share presentations and there wasn't much privacy for the gym and no real comfortable place to sit and relax.
The pools and kids areas were fine, but the outdoor pool appeared a bit murky - I believe that it may have used a salt water chlorination system which was easier on my kids eyes but may have contributed to the clarity.
Top Local Tips for Williamsburg
Do your research about the passes and events prior to getting to arrival We got the Historic Triangle Pass (good for Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown attractions). This happened to be the best pass - but we only decided on it by accident. We also had season passes to Busch Gardens - this also was the best deal for people who live near BG.
Busch Gardens - nothing special We went to Busch Gardens thinking it was going to be something unique. We were very disappointed. It is a nice park, but nothing we can't find at just about any decent amusement park. Kind of expensive, too.
