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.

This hotel was mediocre at best. No air conditioning anywhere except sleeping rooms - dining room very hot. Beach dirty, with trash and seaweed. Activities sporadic.

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!!!!

I had my travel agent request thru Apple a remodeled room in a quiet section and the hotel did not give us either. Was kind of disappointed.

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!

It’s a shame this hotel is where it is- North side! Very windy! Unenjoyable! I cried and wanted to leave! Food menu never changed for the week. No paper towels in room or napkins to blow your nose on. Long walk to eat! Rental Car covered in sand everyday! Travel agent never told us about the wind! Some days was hurricane wind! Terrible vacation! Sorry. I hated to say this but people should know.

If you aren't expecting The Four Seasons then you will be fine. The beach is gorgeous and yes there are rocks that you have to step around to get into the ocean but you don't need water shoes. Walk a little down the beach to banana bay and you will have nothing but clear water and sugar sand swimming. You can walk forever in either direction. This beach goes on and on. The food is ok. We've had better and we've had worse at all inclusives. We had an oceanfront room with 2 queens and the beds were comfortable and the view outstanding. The room was fine. The staff was amazing. Fun, inclusive, hard working, kind group of people who were doing their best. Our teenagers had a lot of fun participating in all the goings on that the entertainment staff were putting on day and night. The bartenders were great and the drinks were a plenty. The hot tub was hot, the pool cool and the ocean amazing. We never had problems finding a spot on the beach but the pool was a little more difficult so we just stayed on the beach! Problem solved :) Lots to keep you busy at this sweet little gem of a place. If you go open minded hopefully you leave pleasantly surprised.

I, my wife, and cousins went to the island for the diving. We were to be placed in another location but due to storm damage we were put up here. It has an international flavor/setting which is nice, but the facility is run down and in ill repair. The entrance door to our room had a wide gap at the base and creepy bugs invaded each night. The bathroom had shower tiles falling off and gobs of caulking trying to fill in the gaps. Where I live, we call this poor quality, and sub-standard work. The food was marginal, but the staff was nice. Know some Italian and you will get along fine. I know that my family will NEVER come back to this place again. I have stayed in jungle camps in the Amazon with fewer bugs on the floor.

great family vacations

We stayed here from the 30th of December to the 6th January 2018. Check in time is a firm 3 pm NO WAVERING. We initially had a a room in the 3200 block which had us facing a road and a grassy area. Paid for an upgrade to the 2000 block with a view of the ocean. Glad we moved because everyone in the 3000 block complained about no hot water for the week. View was great. Saw the ocean and beach every morning. Draw back was that the septic was by our door so we smelt sewage daily. Rooms are rooms nothing fancy. Two beds and a bathroom. No where to sit in the room if it rained. There are safes in the room which you have to pay extra for if you want to use them. It is $15 for the week and they come in an inspect the safes after you have been checked in for a few days and ding you with an invoice. Even if you upgrade $280.00 you have to pay. Cheap Viva! The resort is the only resort on the beach area and you can walk about a mile in either direction on the soft white sand. There was only 2 vendors on the beach selling shells or braiding hair. The ocean was nice to swim in with a lot of natural snorkeling beauty a short distance from the shore. The ocean was actually warmer than the swimming pool to swim in. The swimming pool was freezing cold and the so called hot tub was lukewarm. The buffet was fair and extremely repetitive. The New Years Eve dinner was spectacular. The A la cartes were ok and a nice change from the repetitive buffet. The only saving grace for this resort are the people who work there and bust their butts to keep people entertained. Shout out to Gabriella, Lucie and Paige on the entertainment team. Thanks for saying Hi and keeping us engaged. Shout out to Claudine our house keeping expert who went the extra mile every morning with a pleasant smile and greeting. Shout out to Pedro and Keith at the bar who were Bahama mama and cappuccino specialists. The real bad draw back were the drunken Quebecois who took over the resort, smoked everywhere like chimneys and disgracefully heckled the entertainment staff during shows. On New Years eve there was underage Quebecois kids hammered wandering around the resort. Obviously a better monitoring system needs to be in place. Apparently this resort is a haven for the Quebecois so stay away if you don't want to be annoyed daily. All in all I can't say I would return again and I can't say I'd try another Viva Wyndham. For an Italian owned company the food was way short on tasty and the property average.
