Stayed here quite a few times over the last 10 years. Was usually good, this time around not so much. Upon arrival (was late at night) had a toilet overflow in the room which kept running nonstop and overflowed and flooded the entire bathroom. (I was bringing luggage in, kid used the bowl and didn't know how to turn it off, but it should have stopped regardless). Called front desk and no one was around with a mop, so was told to use towels to sock it up. Had to use every towel in the unit since there was so much water. They delivered 2 hand towels that was supposed to get us through until the next day. 2 days later, we have an infestation of ants in one bathroom, and a good amount in the 2nd bathroom. They put one ant trap in each bathroom which did nothing al all the stop them. Totally gross. No apologies or anything else offered. Will surely look to stay elsewhere next time we vacation in the area.

I am an owner at Diamond Resorts and used points to visit Williamsburg Plantation which is not a Diamond Resort. The location is convenient to restaurants and attractions. They have nice pools and activity areas. The rooms are nice. Now for the not so good. They charge $30 a week for activities and a WEAK WiFi signal. The kitchen is poorly furnished. No baking pan. One small frying pan. We went to Walmart and bought some pans so we could cook for 4 people. We found a bag of candy corn hidden between the mattresses in the master bed room. Water was leaking from the master bath ceiling to which maintenance responded to quickly. There is not a washer and dryer in the unit. The units are definitely not what I have experienced at Diamond resorts Greensprings and Powhatan Plantation. NOTE: while I own a timeshare I warn you not to buy one. They are a financial black hole. Maintenance fees are forever increasing. A timeshare is not an investment. It is one if the most horrible financial mistakes you can make.
