Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach
Oct 29 2018
The standard room was not clean and in need of upgrades. It certainly does not live up to the Wyndham name. The overall resort was very nice and the meals at the buffet were outstanding. Meals at the specialty restaurants leave a lot to be desired. The entertainment was great and the facilities were very safe and clean. We will not return to this resort because there are many others reasonably priced that live up to industry standards. The building we stayed in was nothing like any of the pictures on the website!

Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach...All-inclusive. Definitely lived up to my expectations. Excellent food/drink/staff. Lots of fun entertainment and options. The beach is great (wear water shoes) it is a bit rocky but the water is warm, good swimming. Very good snorkeling. I never left the resort. If you want relaxing, stay here. If you want fun, stay here. you won't go hunry.

If you are going for weather...
Aug 11 2016
The weather was outstanding. Hot and humid and coming from Wisconsin we don't get enought of that....When I book an all inclusive, I really want food and drink that are good tasting, not the same items over and over each day. I want the alcohol to be a brand that I have at least heard of and I want my soda that is not flat. The food and drinks were a disappointment. All other aspects were good. We did enjoy ourselves despite that and we really just wanted to relax and get some rest. The front desk was really helpful when we needed to make a room change at checkin.

Some good things and bad things
May 28 2016
The hotel was nice, the staff and animation team were friendly and cool. I loved the beach and the pools. Something really good was that they provide snorkeling, paddle boarding and others sports equipment in the package. Something that wasn't really nice was the water in the shower kept getting hot and cold; hot to the point that it burned our skin. We complain at the front desk but they didn't do anything about it. Also, they don't go out of their way to make the stay extra special, my boyfriend try to arrange something nice since he was going to propose during our trip. He contacted the reception and email the person in charge but never did anything about it. This was kind of rude at least they should have said they couldn't. other than that it was okay hotel.

Where do I start? When we first arrived and checked in the representative pointed us in the direction of where our room was. we had to drag out luggage with us as well. When we finally found out room the balcony's door handle was hanging off if the hinges and there was a stick to put in the door to lock it! The bathroom had used bottles of shampoo and lotion in it! We booked a room with a king size bed but received a room with two full size beds. We had to pay 15.00 extra dollars for a safe. We called and were advised the room we were in was one of the best! We finally got a different room the next day with a king size bed and everything newer. The people here aren't too friendly it seems like everyone came to do their job. The plus side is all of the water activities were free!! I left my shoes in the first room and when I asked about them, no one co uld find them. We travel a lot and this was a huge disappointment. It was like Deja vu eating the same food over and over again. I definitely would not recommend or go there again!

Upon arrival at noon we were told we could not check in , until 3 we stood in line for 45 minutes ,when we did get up to the desk they swithing everyone to another line because they didn't have keys made, another delay. When I received my room key it was for room 1108 a standard room with two full beds. I called Apple when the hotels were switched to make sure I would receive the same accommodation's that I paid for , I was told I was protected I even received an email from Apple stating this. So I went back up waited on the night manager he told me Apple booked a standard room after some heated discussion I went back to the room 1108. An hour or so later he called found us a deluxe room the room was dirty smelled like mildew form the water leaks room 2248. The manager said that's all he had and he did this on behalf the Memories because Apple screwed up. The room didn't get cleaned until I once again complained it didn't make the services list because it showed up as unoccupied. So our stay was less then desirable . Im not sure where the mistake was but I wasn't impressed by either Apple or the Memories Hotel. This was the first time I used Apple on the recommendation of a good friend. Not sure if I will again though.

You get what you pay for! Was a good choice for a short trip at a cheap price, but if I wanted to Was a good choice for a short trip at a cheap price, but if I wanted to stay longer I'd go somewhere else. The beach was AMAZING and the staff was friendly and warm. Downsides were that the room left something to be desired and it was sometimes a long wait to get drinks.

Winter Perfection
Mar 08 2013
We arrived approximately 10:30am and although checkin isn't until 3PM, the staff found a room ready for us. While everyone else at the airport was waiting for their rides to their hotels, ours was there and ready to go. The Viva staff was wonderful, happy to have us as guests and treated us this way. Plenty to do, all questions were answered quickly and accurately,we will be back same time next year. We met a lot of guests who "cruised" in, and they too decided to stay the week at the Viva Wyndham rather than cruise and waste time on the ship rather than at the resort. We all will meet up in January, 2012 at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna!!!

The hotel was a mess in short. Needs repairs and up dating without a doubt. If it wasn't for the entertainment staff I would have left completely!! I used Applevacations for 4 previous trips to other places and have never been disappointed until this trip. It was a special trip as 3 generations of women in my family went that was the most disappointing to take my mother who hasn't been anywhere literally and to see and live with the condition of the hotel was embarrassing to say the least. Terrible, terrible resort!!!!

Great animation staff
Wed Dec 12 17:01:53 EST 2018
We just got back from our vacation at Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach. The resort itself is outdated and the food was just OK. I had a feeling that whatever was left from dinner was for lunch the next day but with gravy! Not many choices of food either. But I read other people’s reviews before I booked the trip so I was aware of it. The beach is nice, the water beautiful and warm. In fact, the water in the ocean was warmer than in the pool ( the pool was not heated). What we really loved about the resort, was the animation staff. These people( Alice, Veronica, Roberto, Manuela, Brianna, Eddie, Emma, Lauren, Jian and the rest of the crew) were AMAZING!!! Every night they had a different show. All of these guys are professional dancers and great entertainers!! If it wasn’t them, our trip wouldn’t be the same, the resort would be dead and boring. These talented and hardworking people made sure all the guest were having fun! They had crazy games in the morning (darts, bingo etc.) by the pool and they performed on the stage at night. Every day, We looked forward to the next show. They were also very kind and opened to people, they would come up to random guests in the buffet during lunch for example and have lunch with them just to get to know them better. What I also loved about the animation staff, was that they made sure that kids were involved in the activities. My 10 year old daughter had nobody to play with at the resort since there was no kids her age, she hang out with the animation staff, she performed on the stage one night with them in a “Lion King” show, they showed and thaught her few trapeze tricks and she had the time of her life! Now, I have to go back because she misses them so much ;) even if it means eating the same food every day for a week :)

Awesome stay

We stayed for 1 week in November and had an amazing time. We have typically stayed at 5 star resorts and were a little hesitant in booking a 3.5 star but this was one of our best vacations we have had. Resort itself is clean updated and modern. Its not 5 star finishes but not 3.5 star either. The pool had the best chairs and sunbeds we have ever seen. Rooms were clean and updated and modern as well. We had ocean front and had an excellent room and location. Cleaning service was the best we have experienced before. Food was also excellent and Chef Danilo was the best, his pasta was the same as being in Italy! I am Italian and having been there it is top notch, given he is also Italian it was expected. All other dishes were fantastic and I had a few meals where I could just keep on eating the food was so good. The only "downside" if you can call it that is there is no one to serve you drinks by the pool or beach or even in the main buffet restaurant but other than that everything else is top notch and at least 4 or 4.5 star in my opinion. Beach and Ocean were amazing and never had an issue getting a chair. Shady areas included. Water was excellent, some rocky areas but nothing crazy and water shoes weren't necessary. We rented a car one day and drove around the island and had a great time. I recommend doing the excursion "swimming with the pigs" this is normally only on Exuma but was just started on this island and is totally worth doing. Overall this resort is amazing value and we will be coming back. I would highly recommend this resort to families, couples and anyone really.

Did not live up to my expectations

Older property, the resort guest buildings are showing their age, although our room - 2208, was nicely updated, modern, simple, and excellent view of the beach, ocean, and the property. The grounds are well kept, plenty of activities to keep all ages busy if you wish, including trapeze, archery, snorkeling, lots more. Most staff very friendly, and would often greet you in passing, but it was not consistent. Considering that tourism is The Bahama's biggest industry, staff should be even more outgoing and friendly then in other areas. The biggest disappointment was the food. The buffet offered varied items each day, each meal, which was nice, and also had extended dining hours for each meal, but food quality was a bit lacking. Most everything we ate, any day, any meal, was lukewarm, even when I had something from a warming tray that had just been brought out from kitchen in one instance! There are supposedly three restaurants, but one seems to be mainly a pizza place, the one next to it, a Cafe, and both of them did not appear to be open several of the nights we were there. There is also an Oriental restaurant next to the buffet, and in the three evenings we were there, Dec 8, 9, 10, it was not open. If you go, you should make sure to see the nightly entertainment. It does not start until 9:30pm, a bit late, but the entertainers really put a lot of effort into their work. While not the quality of a show you'd see on a cruise ship, it was certainly good every evening. We had the pleasure of being joined for lunch one afternoon at the buffet by two of the the dancers, and had a great time talking with them. (One is from New Zealand, the other from Italy.) As timeshare owners, we were somewhat disappointed by the rooms, even though they were in good shape, they lacked the Wow we expect from a timeshare location. We did go on a timeshare presentation, and they do offer some good options, both if you like beach vacations, and/or if you are looking for a relatively inexpensive way to gain access to timeshare vacations worldwide. Considering that this is a beach resort, with the aim of keeping you out of your room and enjoying all the amenities, we would have given the resort a 4 if the food quality was stepped up.

Had a wonderful time, even though I sprained my ankle and was wheelchair bound the entire time!

I had an Amazing trip, everyone in the hotel was very friendly and outgoing. I really enjoyed the time we spent with our New Friend Jian Carlos which by the way is a great dancer and trapeze. He is the life of the party and always has everyone dancing. Eddie the entertainment manager made us all laughed and his performance at the 9:30 shows were so funny. Roberto was the perfect host for the shows gets everyone involved to participate and make the show fun. I love it all the beach front, the energy and the new friends we made. My friends were very happy to have made this trip happen and meet all of these great people who work so hard everyday to make your trip with Wild.
