We had a lovely time. It was great fun. When you see the photos of the resort, you will know why we are forever spoiled about using a hotel. You cannot stay for 7 days in 2 hotel rooms, with 5 kids and your mom and dad. You would all be insane! However you can stay where you have 2 units, which means 4 bedrooms, bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 washer/dryers, a hot tub and a lot of history and fun things to do in the area.
My younger children were just not happy going to Williamsburg, "it's not for kids", "it's boring." They just wanted to swim, play putt-putt, and tennis all day. They did get to do these things alot, however we did torture them and make them go to Jamestown, Williamsburg, John Tyler's plantation "Sherwood Forest", Norfolk for a cool museum and tour of a huge Navy battleship, and a harbor cruise (thanks Grandpa!) Oh and we also went to Yorktown Victory Center which was really cool!
Now I will torment you with a photo of the Outdoor pool area at the resort! Yes, it was so hard to vacation there, but hey, somebody has to do it.
