Would not recommend this hotel

Jan 30 2019
My husband and I experienced this hotel to be horrible. It was nothing like the pictures shown. It was filthy, in need of repairs, no hot water and the staff never did anything to assist. We paid for an ocean front room and requested a king bed and did not get either. They did not know of Apple Vacation representative and we were never picked up from the airport or returned and had to pay for the cab ourselves. We were VERY disappointed.

Had three rooms 3125, 3126 and 3132. Rooms very old and updated. Bathrooms terrible. On third afternoon, after sewer pumpout close to our room, ground water seeped up through the tiles in the closet and entrance of the door. Staff were called three times to finally get completely cleaned up. Kettia, Customer Service Rep at hotel, knows about it. Offered to change adjoining rooms but could not replace them with any adjoining rooms which was difficult with 4 small children. Complete disaster.

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.

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

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.

Ok resort....but only just!

We got to the Wyndham on Wednesday February 13th, 2019 for a ten day trip. The hotel is, for me, just OK. Now, I have only stayed at 5 stars before and this is a 3 star so I am not used to this level. The resort is nice, not too big but the rooms are very dated. But, we didn’t spend a ton of time on the room. The beach is absolutely amazing, especially if you walk to the left (when facing the ocean). It is clear, blue and beautiful. The snorkeling is good and you can walk out forever and it is only waist deep. The colours of the water are killer. If you love beaches, this is the place. There are tons of beach chairs, even throughout the day, you only need to reserve if you want “front row to the ocean” but we are here now and got front row at 8am so no real need to wake up early. The service....is not that great. No waters in our room (you only get one small one each for the whole trip) and even when we asked, we never received them. Our cards to our rooms kept going dead after a day or so. We had to go to get new ones three times so far, and we still have a few days left. They clean the rooms, but only a bit. Made beds and a quick sweep and they are out. The buffet is sub par and the food rarely changes. But it is buffet food at a three star so you get what you pay for. We ate at Banana Bay restaurant which is a quick 15 minute walk down the beach to the left. It was amazing. I recommend it. It is not part of the resort so four meals with drinks cost us about $125CAD but it was so worth it. The pros - they pour the drinks with LOTS of alcohol and there is a beer and red/white wine tap in the buffet so it is easy to fill up. The sports bar is very good at the mixed drinks but they can be powerful. The beach is beautiful and worth the trip alone. The beach is awesome and not having to fight for chairs is another plus. There is also not a ton of pressure like when you are in Mexico. If you aren’t interested in something, just say no. The Nexus place where you book your excursions so great, no pressure and good prices. Is checked out them and some locals (on the beach and port Lucaya and they are comparable.

We visited Viva Wyndham Bahamas second week of February. We were a family of 4 visiting - 3 adults and one child in 2 rooms. Miss Alvarez at front desk went above and beyond to accommodate our family and to make sure we had adjoining rooms and all in a super timely manner considering that the hotel was full and they were preparing our rooms. She even went above and beyond to help in a personal manner. The rooms were very clean as was the rest or the resort and facilities. Food was great - plenty of choices and all fresh - lots of drink options too. Amazing activities for kids/adults (tennis/scuba/archery/paint ball/trapeze/crazy-lazy games)...unbelievable entertainment staff! The shows were superb...haven't laughed that much in years and clapped that much for performances. All the staff was pleasant and fun to interact with...regardless of tip. We felt as though we were part of the family. We have to give a super special thank you to SAMUEL - animation staff - who always made sure that we all (young and old 😉) participated in the fun activities and let loose no matter our skills or talents - so inclusive. This inclusiveness is something that is so unique about this resort and will keep families like us coming back. And there is a night life too...unlike some other places...danced our tooshies off by the bar and in the disco 🕺. Great beach and pool area...lots of beach chairs! The Dive Center was excellent - great scuba instructors - Jacob/Dimitri/Jerrod/Mike. Thank you all for an awesome vacay ... see you soon! Luka (liitke robot man) and family.

First All Inclusive - Very Happy!

This was our first all inclusive resort. I was a little worried after reading some reviews, but we honestly had a great time and were not disappointed. Yes, there are a few things that Viva Wyndham can upgrade, but overall we were very happy with our stay. We paid a great budget price for our week long vacation, and given that price, I think it was a great value for what we got. The drinks were very strong. The buffet was good, with dinner being better than lunch or breakfast. My only complaint about the buffet is that it closes at 10 PM. With the bars being opened til 2 AM, I don't think it would hurt to extend the buffet hours a tad, even if it's just until 11 o'clock. All the restaurants were very good! You can only book three reservations at first, but check back each day after 4 o'clock and you can try to snag another! We ate at the restaurants five times during our stay! The entertainment staff was absolutely amazing. Lauren, Brianna, Samuel, Eddie, and Lorenzo to name a few. Lauren and Samuel were super helpful during archery! We also enjoyed the kayaks, snorkeling equipment and tennis courts. My boyfriend used the gym as well and he thought it was very good. There is also a sauna in the gym which I enjoyed. As for the beach, it was huge and there were plenty of chairs. The hot tub was big and always hot. However, I think management should consider heating the pool. The water was too cold so we didn't use the pool during our stay. Overall, I would come back here if I got the same price again. The rooms definitely need updating, but we barely spent any time in them because there were so many activities available to us. If you are thinking of staying here but hesitant because of some recent negative reviews, give it a try!

4th Time, Will return ...... however !!

This was our fourth visit to this resort and although we will be returning again, we noticed some changes. NEW MANAGEMENT please take note: The common area was not as clean as it had been on our past visits. Windows, glass table tops, shop windows.... all needed to be washed. (used to be washed daily) Also noticed that the beach was no longer being raked every morning as in the past. This resulted in there being a lot of weeds, napkins, plastic glasses..... the entire week. In the past, the beach chairs would be perfectly aligned every morning allowing a tractor to pass between the rows of chairs raking up anything that may have been left on the beach over night. Then the tractor would run the entire length of the beach gathering any weeds that may have washed ashore over night. I want to make one thing clear. It is not the staff, they are, as usual, working extremely hard . One major issue for all passengers from Canada (Montreal & Toronto) was a change in Hotel policy that no longer opened the breakfast buffet at 6:30am (30 minutes earlier than usual) allowing us time to grab a quick bite before having to leave the hotel at 7:15am They opened at their usual time of 7:00am. This gave us less than 15 minutes to get something to eat and rush back the buses waiting to bring us to the airport. All this said, we are still planning on returning, to hopefully find things have gone back to the way they were on our previous 3 visits. Would like to thank customer service and other staff for always taking care of us during our stay. They are part of the reason we keep coming back. See you next year.

Great Experience!

Flew direct from Montreal (3 hrs!) - 3 couples, 4 kids (ages 5, 4, 4 and 18m). Nothing but great things to say about this resort. If I am being honest, after reading some of the reviews before leaving, I was setting myself up for disappointment. That being said, my expectations were surpassed. To the people who said the rooms/resort is outdated - I have no idea where they were staying! While this is not a modern Hilton, it has great amenities, comfortable pool side chairs, clean rooms, flat screen tv's in the bar area, and the washrooms in the public areas were clean and updated. Rooms: we had ocean view, basically on the beach (lower level). The staff was able to accommodate our group, and set us up 3 in a row. This was AMAZING for us, as we all had children with us, and it was great to have the beach at our door. Not to mention, the beach bar was close by and we all took turns walking there to grab drinks/food! Rooms were cleaned daily, towels always replenished. 2 bottles of water per day. They did not have any odor (usually on vacation I notice the rooms smell damp/mouldy). The AC was a tad loud .. but we managed. Room always cool! Pool: as others have said, it was definitely cold. Our kids still went in, and us adults went in to cool off as well. The hot tub is large, and our kids enjoyed hanging out there every day. The pool side area was comfortable and the staff did many activities. Food: I loved the buffet, lol. Breakfast was a bit meh for me - the usual things - scrambled eggs, pancakes, french toast etc, but it did not vary much from day to day. Lunch and dinner had great variety - all foods had great flavor, and tons to choose from. Buffet always was stocked up, and the spaces cleaned. Never had to wait for a table, despite being a group of 10. We hit up all 3 a la carte restaurants (with the kids!). My fav was the Italian - service was excellent and the food and ambiance was great. Drinks: they are strong! Eventually I would just ask for half the alcohol (call me a lightweight). Service was fast and friendly. The beach bar had a lot of bees - but they didn't bother me. Never had to wait for a drink. Beach: The beach was always clean, lots of chairs available, and no vendors bothering you all day long. We tried stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and catamaran. All were great. Recommend the Banana Bar down the beach - nice ambiance and beautiful views. Coming from a seasoned 'all inclusive traveler' - I can tell you that this resort has everything you need. Good food, nice/clean rooms, beautiful beach, polite staff and the sun! What else do you need?
