Our second time at Powhatan-all the comforts of home! Love having the deck, washer/dryer. John’s unit was nicely updated and clean. He also responded to questions in a timely manner. Would definitely stay again!
My family loves Thanksgiving, resorts, and "Christmas Town" at Busch Gardens. The Powhatan Resort experience allowed us to fully enjoy all three of these this year! The unit was more than we were expecting, allowing us to fully relax and recharge for the five days we stayed. The full kitchen facilitated the preparation of our Thanksgiving meal and the dining area allowed me, my wife, and our three kids to gather around for the dinner. It's proximity to shopping, Colonial Williamsburg, and Busch Gardens allowed us to enjoy outings, knowing "home base" was close by. The five of us took advantage of the indoor pool/spa and mini golf course. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We are already looking forward to our stay next year!
We stayed in a 2BR downstairs unit which was spacious and clean. We were wary of the reviews we had read regarding the aggressive time share sales pitches by the Diamond Resort people, but were able to avoid all of them. John, the owner, was very responsive and quick to return messages and we had no issues whatsoever. The Powatan resort is pretty, however, we did not really take advantage of any of the amenities because we were rarely there--only to shower and sleep, as we spent our time out doing things such as visiting Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown, Busch Gardens and Go Ape. The resort is very conveniently and centrally located to all of these places.
