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
NIDIA H.
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.

My husband's birthday (unimpressed)

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.

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!!!!

Hotel experience was very poor because of lack of concern of custumers; If i travel to the Bahamas again, I do not intend to experience the Viva Wyndham again, as I feel that their service was SUB-PAR! If you cannout get coffee and clean towels for your room, I could stay at a Motel 8, for craps' sake!

All around fun!

The employees are amazing - they do SO much! From the crack of dawn to past midnight. Reminds me of the movie Dirty Dancing with how the employees do so many jobs. Not very many speak or understand English though, so that's hard. Watch out for the "sellers" on the beach, they want to sell you things you can get at Port Lucaya. The ladies at the beach will braid your hair (Pansy and Jackie), all of them barter, so pay what you can! It's how THEY make their living. They really will bend over backwards for you for the most part. The island has very high unemployment so lots of people needing money. Unlike in the States tho, MOST of the Bahamians actually work for it. The Hurricane Matthew was rough on people and there is a LOT of damage around still. Sad. Lots of garbage around the resort if you get outside of it. Music is loud late at night, rooms not sound proof at all? Seems as though the resort needs some updating, but it's comfy. Lots of cats!! And soon many, many kittens as none of them are fixed. Sweet kitties tho 😃. Beach was wonderful! Great sand! Little rocky, but float out over that and away you go! Snorkeled and saw cool things right in the resort area. Lots of fun things happening right on the pool deck! No ATMs and no shuttles. ATMs don't charge much though. Have to take a taxi everywhere. Nice bike riding around if you can find a bike without a flat and that has a chain! I didn't like the plastic patio/deck furniture. 😕 Knowing all this ahead of time would have helped a lot. I'd definitely go back, but I'd request a room farther out from the main area. Thank you all of you at the Viva Wyndham!

Aggressive drug dealers on the beach!

Drug dealers were aggressive on the beach and became angry if you didn't buy their drugs. It was a whole family selling sea shells as a front. They broke out in a fight in front of everyone. When we told the front desk they didn't seem to care. I only wanted to know where we could sit without being harassed. They said they would tell security. The next day we saw security on the beach hanging out with them and providing them with drinks. It was obvious that they were regularly and welcomed on the beach. Very uncomfortable and rude service with the exception of the hired entertainers from other countries. Don't expect friendliness from the locals if you come!

I WAS MOLESTED

I went on this vacay for my bday and went on the jet ski ride on the resorts beach and let me say THESE MEN ARE MOLESTERS..went for a jet ski ride and was innapropriately touched..and they made me feel like i imagined it all and nothing happened...DO NOT RIDE WITH THEM . When I told the hotel manager he did nothing for me after claiming he would. They provide awful service and do not tend to customers needs . They took my molestation lightly and I warn all of you to NEVER attend this resort. If anything were to happen to you they wouldn’t blink an eye!!!!!

We just came back on April 21st. The rooms were good although the showers had low pressure and cold water at times. The buffet and snack bar was good but there could've been a better selection. The ocean had a lot of rocks and seaweed. They also need more staff when they're cruise ships coming in. The highlight of this vacation was the animation staff, they were very friendly and talented. Big shoutout to Lino, Paige, Amaurys, Chelsie, Speedy, Piña, Betty Boop, Keila and especially Eddy. And to the bartenders, Fredrick, Pedro and Keith for there awesome service.
