Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The beach is lovely and the pool and all the extra facilities, you name it they have got it. It's suitable for anyone from solo, to groups to families. The rooms are clean and comfortable and what you see in the website is what you get. The staff are helpful. Checking in is a bit of a nightmare as they check everyone in at the same time. They do however give you an armband as you arrive so you can use all the facilities and have food and drink until check in time which is great and also on your day of departure, you check out but can use the facilities until you leave.
me and my husband was here sept. 3rd to 7th 2017 with hurricane Irma on the way.....the Bohemian staff is very excellent the bartender's expecially, (Freddrick). We encountered one of the internarional staff whom was very rude. Rooms are kept up with AM. and PM. courtesy checks, however the room it's self is dated and minimalistic. Not even a dresser to put away clothing. The main light in the room is very dim for the space, which is kinda small. The food and atmosphere here is mainly Itailian. I would have liked to have more of a local culture. The activities are hit and miss with the times. Most are shut down 12:30 to 3:00 ish. Pool closes at 8pm. Most of the resorts I've been to have been to have a wait staff that comes around the pool/ beach areas to tend to your drinks and food Here you have to make trips to get what you want. To which ever bar/ food area that happens to be open at that time. Because the main restaurant is buffet style which is the only breakfast served. Lunch is the buffet or the beach bar buffet. There are 4 choices for dinner if one isn't closed, today the pizza one was. Then one bar closes and then may reopen if the other has events going on near it. The focused/ themed restaurants are very good. Beach is great... however once in the water it's very rocky be warned.. nice calm waves tho so your not getting beat around. Lots of seaweed too.. :(
We paid an exaggerated price per night in a hotel, where:- The air conditioning in the room was very noisy.- The electricity didn’t work by the rain, that is something frequent in this time and the generator was next to the room causing an unbearable noise.- The shower regulated the hot water very badly.- Towel service for the beach was awful, the first day there were no towels until afternoon.- The “a la carte restaurants” gave a really bad service, we went to two and in the first one, they served warm white wine and in another one the pizza took an hour to serve it.- Our reservation said that we had King bed and we hadn’t.- And nothing of courtesy on the part of the hotel when they verified that there was an error, applying the maximum price.
We stayed for two night and three days at this property. The location is away from the port and on a quiet side of the Grand Bahama Island in the Freeport area. The main dining areas and the lobby area are all open with ceiling fans, so it can be hot if you are not under a fan. The check in experience can be long if you get a desk clerk who has an attitude. The beach is the best part of this resort. The food is good, but some of it leaves something to be desired. If you are a picky eater, you probably will not like the selection. The rooms were clean and very cool, with ice cold air conditioning. The onsite Italian restaurant was very good. The staff was very kind and the young adults who did the activities were lots of fun. The pool was very warm, so we spent most of our time in the ocean. We would go back when a Hurricane was not expected. We had to leave the resort 4 hours early due to the evacuation order for Irma.
This resort is a great family getaway. We went with a group of 9 people and occupied 3 rooms. Our rooms were in the yellow buildings close to the tennis courts. The buffet offered food choices for everyone. We enjoyed the young chef that prepared fresh pasta everyday with a variety of different sauces. The staff was friendly, the entertainment staff was outstanding. We spent a considerable amount of time in the dive shop, which was an amazing experience and a good value for your money. Overall a wonderful experience for all of us. I do have a couple of suggestions for both holiday goers and the resort. 3:00 oclock check in, was a pain but bring your suit in your carryon and enjoy your day. Or you lose your first days vacation. For the resort, towels seemed to be a bit of an issue, in both the room and the pool. We stayed in rooms that had kids and were told we would get one water bottle a day, that didn't happen a couple of times I called and the rest of the week i just didn't bother. If you offer a service, please honor it. A sign in the lobby indicating the events of the day. While I understand that tips are expected your staff should be reminded that they first should perform the service before expecting a tip. Overall we had a great a vacation and will return. Hope you are all staying safe as the storm passes.
