Verified Reviews of The Historic Powhatan Resort by Diamond Resorts

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lots of Space for Family."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I have stayed here in the past and can tell the units have been updated. There is a lot of space in the two bedroom suites. The kitchen has been been updated, as well as all the televisions in the units. I enjoy this vacation spot because of the amount of space you get when you have family and/or friends.
