My parents being the wonderful people they are let us use their time-share at Marriott Manor Club in Williamsburg to give us a little time away before my husband’s upcoming deployment to Bosnia.

This is an overall excellent park for families and adults alike. Any who are just seeking some fun, relaxation, and memorable times should visit this park. The staff wasn’t exactly overly nice, but they were very safety conscientious as they checked each safety harness and belt twice. Not a bad park indeed.
