Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort is AMAZING! The views are more than picture perfect and the snorkeling is free and priceless! The food was very nasty but there is a really tasty restaurant about a half mile walking distance to the left, right on the beach. One of the best resorts in the Bahamas, I will return!
Fabulous beach, lush gardens, reasonable food, only let down by the rooms needing to be updated.Issues at weekends with invasion from the ferry boats from the US bringing swathes of people that take over the resort and you dont get a look in at the bars unless you drop 50 dollar tips to get attention.....Went to the Dolphin sanctuary and petted the Dolphins in the water arenas, This is a must do, but a tip is to not book through hte hotel, take the shuttle to Freeport and book at the quayside 50% cheaper for the same trip, as we were on the same boat as the other hotel guests who book via the hotel.Food is reasonable, not 5 star quality but not unappealing.Rooms really need a make over as do the bathrooms. Great Views from the balcony, go for a first floor room to get the best views.
The activities, shows, and clubs are definitely tailored to the college crowd. Music pumpin day and night. Physical challenges for prizes and drinking games like beer pong, etc. Beach-fire bonfires with the DJ playin young-people music. If you're lookin for a quiet vacation this ain't your place. If you're in college, jackpot! As for the hotel, the rooms were nice. The beach was really pretty and big. Good selection of food and drink items. We liked the seafood restaurant the best, 2nd was probably the japanese restaurant.
Although the price of our Groupon was crazy cheap, we knew what kind of accomodations to expect. However this stay was even worse than expected. Avoid it and the Groupon too. The windows are open in the dining room so flies EVERYWHERE! But you werent missing anything. The food was all americanized and way subpar quality. There wasnt anywhere else on premise to get other food other than the snack bar on the beach. That was cute and the food when warm was decent. The room had tiny little bugs that climbed on anything you left on a counter.There was only one tiny, covered, sconce on the wall in a corner so lighting in the room was impossible. There were tiny reading lights at the ends of the beds. The room had a nice balcony. Thats about all the good I can say about the rooms. The beach was nice and there was ample shade and seating. There were activities available but very few and not very energetic.There were shows nightly, also not very energetic.The vibe on this resort was sort of just chill. I will say the bartenders were amazing. Generous with the alcohol and set up a lot of fun shots for us. Thats the only place there was any activity and energy. So avoid this groupon and hotel. Not worth the discount.
In May of this year we and another couple visited the hotel and the Bahamas for the first time. Our rooms were very accessible to the facilities and the food, and the room staff kept them clean (on their own schedule, which varied from day to day). Our rooms and balconies being directly on ground level we had ample opportunity to observe the biting ants on the porch each morning, but the exterminator did come around toward the end of our stay. The all-inclusive restaurant was quite good and one was always able to find something that you liked to eat, however, I'd advise anyone to get there when the restaurant opens for meals as the offerings get thin toward the end of the mealtime. Grounds staff, the performers (who all seemed to do triple duty at other jobs onsite), and wait staff were very outgoing and welcoming. The hotel desk help, particularly the gentleman who organized our shuttle services, was professional and thorough. Sadly we were unable to say the same for the dive shop staff. Although he had been on some 20+ dives previously my husband had to pay for a "practice" dive to show the staff he knew how to dive - they never asked to see his logbook, which would have backed up the previous dives and the fact that he had just taken a refresher course in our hometown dive shop. Due to time constraints he was only able to take one dive time that week - so that was quite a bummer! Fortunately he was able to at least see some sea life while snorkeling off the beach one day before we left. The refund of the practice dive fee and "points" for another Wyndham stay were very nice, but they could not give him the time or experience back. This trip celebrated the four friends' retirements, so we were determined we would have a good time and did:)
