Pros- the ocean view was amazing!!!!! The food was just ok, nothing fancy! You're better off eating the buffet rather than going to the 3 on-site restaurants. The pool is nice, the staff are pleasant as well. Cons: no early check-in(no big deal at all)But when we did finally get to our room at 4pm, they were still cleaning it. The sheets on both beds had stains on them(but they were supposed to be clean fresh sheets since they were still cleanin). The floor was FULL of beach sand. The shower nor the sing drained AT ALL!!!!! The couldn't switch our rooms(which was ok) and they did change the bed right away( bed spreads very old and dingy still). When we let them know about the bathroom they came right away and fixed it too. The entertainment was the worst I've seen in a long time, they are contracted from Italy(maybe) and I think they desperately missed the entertainment mark. There was really nothing to do here except sit around drinking and eating. Overall the site was just blah when I take away the issues with my room. This is not a resort I would return to

Nice spot to stay

Good resort but a little rustic and on the smaller side (at least compared to others we have stayed at). So while everything is within easy walking distance, there are not as many features/activities/bars/eateries as other places we have stayed at. To eat, the resort has one buffet, three restaurants, one bar and a beach bar. The buffet food was adequate, had enough variety and taste to keep things fresh for a week but overall quality was middling. To eat outside of the buffet meal times, you had to go to the beach bar which was not opened at all times (think mostly due to some bad weather we had). So just keep that in mind that you can't (or at least we didn't know of) a way to eat and drink yourself silly for 24 hours. It's a 10 minute or so drive from Freeport ($20-$30 taxi ride each way, at least for a party of five). The resort has a dive shop on site, one large pool, one hot tub and a kiddie pool as well as the beach. Our kids (2 and 5 years old) loved the pools while the adults preferred the beach. The ocean views were great and we enjoyed some great lighting shows (although the bad weather hindered our diving, the storms were fun to watch) The kids also enjoyed the kids club and enjoyed the entertainment staff's shows (which were a little on the late side but they stayed awake). The room was fine, a little on the older side but everything was ok (outside of losing hot water a time or two). The internet was good as well, had signal in most places and it was quick enough. The resort also has a tour company to book trips, their prices are a little more than what we could find if we booked directly but they do include transportation (so overall they are a better deal). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Would recommend if you are visiting the island and certainly if you want to go diving.

Entertainers made the stay enjoyable

One star for ocean view bungalow, one for entertainers and one for friendly bartenders. Front reception horrible. Did not give us anything but room key. No card for beach towels, no map of place. Our luggage was left out in hot sun all day with no one watching it. Unbelievable! We were under impression it was going to be locked up until we could check in room. 1st day housekeeping didn't give us hand towel even though they said they would be back but never came. 2nd day they didn't leave face towels. We called front desk and heard them call housekeeping. Face towels never came. They take towels away, go wash and then come back. Very inefficient, must not have enough towels. Buffet food ok but not much variety. Buffet Staff always cleaning but never smiling. Staff works hard and all look tired and unhappy, except for entertainment staff who do everything with the guests. Very lively, enthusiastic and sweet. Loved them. Loved the Bamboo Restaurant with the blue light reminiscent of the bar on star strek. My salmon was delish! Was impressed with staff always straightening beach chairs to face the ocean.The heater/air conditioner sounded like a helicopter was landing in our room at 2:00 am. Impossible to sleep with that and the hybernating bear snoring through the thin adjoining door. No luggage rack in room either or chair to place luggage. No shuttle transportation. Had to pay $30 plus tip to go shopping at Lucayan Marketplace.

Cautionary tale about a good resort

We ended up really valuing our stay here - after we realized and took action on a couple things. You should know that if you're not a resort owner, you will be housed in an area that is closest to the most activity. A good thing if you like to stay up late and like loud music and a lot of noise. Not so good if you're an early riser! Fortunately, the resort had one owner unit available so they could move us (not everyone was so fortunate). ALSO - you should know that this resort is remote from Grand Lucaya if you like the tourist shops. When we were there it was a $30 taxi fare roundtrip - which we didn't do. Instead, we rented a car (rental car company located at the resort). This was a brilliant move on our part as we could then travel to the various tourist attractions on our own schedule and at our leisure. We saved money this way by not paying the outrageous prices that the cruise ship charged (they build in their own profit margin on top of the tour operators I'm guessing). Also, because we could go visit the Grand Lucaya resort, which is in the tourist area of shops, we discovered that the Wyndham compared more favorably!! They have staff that double as the nightly entertainment (a Lion King show and a Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatic show that was really incredible). The Grand Lucaya is still recovering from the 2016 Hurricane Matthew and was really tame by comparison. We were suddenly really glad we'd been shifted to the Wyndham.
