We have been staying on this property for over 30 years. It has been very well maintained, units are updated and lovely. Grounds are beautiful. Location is perfect.

Loud party room below us, 6pm to midnight, mattresses worn out no tv in 2 nd bedroom.

Customer service was not accommodating when we needed to make a change to our reservation

I absolutely loved this place clean they had everything you need outdoor pool was great indoor was closed 😔still enjoyed and loved the place peaceful relaxing comfortable and no one tried to sell anything far as timeshare but if interested I’m sure they had all the answers

I liked the history of the property being on an old plantation grounds. It was nice and quiet except for the resident Canadian geese, but they were fun to watch.

They upgraded my room which was a plus, but front desk does take along time to answer.

This property was well below anyone standards. There were ants in each bathroom. When checking and disinfecting the bed there were bugs and hair follicles in the bed. My family will not be visiting again. Tried to reach out to on site manager and didn’t receive a call back

This was a very nice place. I love that if you don’t want to eat out all the time they have stuff for you to use so you can cook. Nice size for a family or friends getaway.

Found out that the "resort/amenity" fee includes things like the dishwasher, plates, and every thing that is in the rooms as well as WIFI the pools fitness center etc.. So while most things are closed due to COVID the "resort" fee was not reduced.

Quite and it was what I was looking for my kids loved it

I love staying here at the Powhatan Resort. The view of the property is amazing.

Our experience was excellent. The only thing I would change is the parking situation

We have been coming here as a family since 2012 and love it every single time. With co-vid we were a little hesitant with visiting and seeing what was open and closed. But we didnt really need anything else but the outdoor pool, which we very much enjoyed. The rooms were clean and comfortable as always.. And we enjoyed going to the beach a few times, eating around the area and visiting different areas we hadnt.Been to.highly recommend this place. It is always the oerfect relaxing and quiet getaway.
