Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We were a group of 4 - 1 couple and 2 friends. This place is fantastic. Party atmosphere poolside during the day - music and games for those that want to get involved. There is a small kids pool, a larger pool, and a hot tub (nice way to finish off the day!). Many padded beach chairs, chaises, sofas and daybeds in this area. 2 bars in close proximity and food abundantly available. Snack shack is super yummy. The beach is amazing! Raked everyday and great for walking in both directions. To the left, going to the end of the beach when the tide is out is a must. It becomes a sandbar and you can walk straight out into the ocean forever and be only up to your knees. Visually stunning!! The colour of the water doesn't seem real. The other direction is also beautiful - I may have found my future mansion. There are always beach chairs available, the bar is close, and the staff come down to let you know about activities that are starting. Lots of water activities available at no cost, and while there are waves, they aren't overwhelming by any means. The water isn't overly warm this time of year - we'll call it refreshing. Brisk with the wind when you get out as well! Night time cools off - bring warmer clothes, or at least a sweater. The shows were actually pretty good! We went to about half of them throughout the week. The buffet was decent - lots to choose from and definitely something for even the pickiest eater. The pizza and cafe a la cartes were amazing. Definitely a must. The staff are amazing. The bartenders are fast so even if there are lines you don't wait long. There are always workers picking up, tidying chairs, and they are always up for a chat about the resort, the town, the island or anything else. So friendly!! The room was fine, everything worked and housekeeping did a great job. No problems with hot water etc. No problem with beach towels either. I shake my head at anyone who gives this place a bad review!!! Book it!
Beautiful location, one of the largest, cleanest beaches I have seen, and the common areas in the resort were very clean and well maintained.....but all else was a horrible. Everything from a disastrous check in (1.5 hours in line) to get a bracelet on your wrist and then you're on your own. When we finally got our room keys at 3 p,m. we were left to lug our own luggage to the farthest point from the lobby (literally) and when we arrived our door jamb was broken and we had to call and wait for repairs. The room itself was clean and freshly painted, but the bed was ancient, sounded like a box of rusty springs and made the most awful noises when you moved......the bathroom was disgusting, mold and mildew in the shower, dirty toilet, and plugged sink. The sink was unplugged but the rest......ugh!! Contrary to some reviews, the food was not at all good, it was very bland, repetitive, lukewarm at best, and I also had food poisoning one night. Al a carte restaurants are quieter, but the food was not much better than the buffet. The beach bar was a bright spot, the food (pizza, burgers, fries) were edible, but both the beach bar and the main bar were understaffed (1-2 bartenders).....always a long wait for a drink, but the drinks were well made and a great variety to choose from. The pool area was small, never any chairs, and the hot tub was full of people all the time. My husband and I have been to many all inclusive resorts, in many places, but this was by far the worst experience, we could hardly wait for the week to be over.
I took my 22 year old daughter to the resort. I love Freeport. I've been there 25 times back in 70's and 80's. I took advantage of the all inclusive at the Viva, largely due to the all inclusive, but also some of the other hotels were not open due to the hurricane in November. The food was amazing and huge variety. The ala cartes were amazing, and although some guests complained, the food was amazing! The drinks were definitely not watered down, in fact most of them were very strong! The employees were all very friendly (except the miserable chef rearranging the desserts, ripped the tongs out of my hand and threw it on a plate, I guess I was using the wrong utensil...I did tell him he was a miserable f..k)The rooms were clean and we were called every other day to see if everything is ok and if we needed it anything. The beach is gorgeous, and close to pool. Not a 20 minute walk like in Cuba. There BBQ by the bar on beach is open most of day and even at night after the disco closed. We were on the beach all day, and only made it to be show, but these kids are so talented. I would give a 10 star for the Viva Wyndham Fortuna beach. The rooms need some paint and I am sure they had to work hard to get the place back into shape after the Hurricane, but there isn't much I could complain about. I love this place and we are going to make a point of going every year together.
Bought an all inclusive day pass when I was here on a cruise for $80. Got to the resort, filled a out an info sheet, got a wristband and was sent on my way with absolutely no direction on amenities, food/drink, map, nothing. Meandered down to the beach and found that the nice beach chairs were off limits for day pass holders. 2 bars, one on the beach quite a bit from "our beach chairs" and the other inside a building a hit from the pool. Moved up to pool to hang out after we finally found 2 chairs ( not nearly enough for the people there). Went inside to get a drink (all food/drinks were supposed to be included) and after all 20 minute wait in a long line (yes 20 minutes...ZERO drink service on beach or at pool) I find out the Jack and coke I want is considered a premium drink and have to settle for Seagrams (that's funny). Finally lunch buffet opens at 1230 (yeah, kind of late opening right?). Living near the ocean in Florida and this place being on the water, expected rhetoric fish to be good. Tried two different types, one was mushy and the other full of bones. Very odd selection of food for a lunch buffet (no burgers, dogs, only little legs of chicken). While the resort looks nice it provided me with two important bits of info: I'll never get a day pass for here again and this quickly got scratched off my list of all inclusive resorts to try. Having been to others such as Sandals in Jamaica (which is amazing), this resort seemed more like a hotel with a add on food plan. Definitely not a resort atmosphere...even on a cruise ship you can order a drink at the pool, a 20 minute line and walk to another location to get one is ridiculous. You get one chance to impress customers and they definitely failed on this one. Even if they gave me a free week I wouldn't pay for the airfare get here, just not worth it.
I traveled to the Bahamas on a day cruise and decided on this location as our shore excursion and it did not disappoint. Its all inclusive so we paid one price and ate and drank all we wanted. The beach and pool area are amazing and we could do beach activities. My friend and I spent a lot of time by the pool and it was so much fun. There was a group of workers who came out and kind of partied with us. They did cocktail lessons which was fun, zumba classes, the whole 9. There was something to do for everyone. D'Angelo and Kenneth were mainly our bartenders and they made us the best drinks all day. I had so much fun I've already planned my next trip there.
