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.

Three Rooms Booked for our Family of 9
Jan 03 2019
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.

Extreme Problem with Room 3111
Jan 03 2019
Our patio door was broken into during the night twice during the 7 days. Had a strange visit from Security another night. Rooms extremely dilapitated and old. Ground water after sewer pump out came up under entrance to room. Have written a comprehensive e-mail letter to but haven't heard back from Apple Vacations as yet.

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.

My husband's birthday (unimpressed)
Dec 06 2015
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.

An absolutely horrible stay
Michelle L, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Thu Apr 11 19:46:08 EDT 2019
My room was along the lines of a $20/night (or per hour) motel. Mold; mildew; rust; dust; children's markers on the wall; no chair; adjoining room lock missing a screw and very loose; some unknown substance on the floor next to the bed; no labels on phone ("0" was not the front desk so I had to walk to the front desk to to ask them a question -- fyi, front desk was "6002"); "clean" beach towel that look it had been used to wipe a posterior instead of using toilet paper; and nearly no furniture as shown in website photos. And that was just the beginning. Due to 3 oral surgeries prepping for permanent implants, eating right now is very difficult and I will not eat in public. The hotel has a strict rule about not taking food back to the room from the buffet or any of their restaurants. Because of my medical reasons, Guest Services made an exception for me - although it took about 10 minutes of explaining to do so. Then they entered info into the computer for about another 10 minutes - no clue what or why so much. However, there's no way to let the dining/kitchen staff know. So after 20 minutes with Guest Services, I had to explain to the buffet greeter/seater person - who initially told me I was unable to take food back to the room. Finally she told me to get a plate of food then ask a chef/cook to put it in a to-go box. So I did. But the chef told me I could not take food back out of the buffet. So after another 10 minutes of explaining my situation, I was finally able to take food in a box back to my room. Then on the way back, I was stopped by a guest asking how I was able to take food back as they were denied. I explained it was due to medical reasons, which she understood. Overall, my dining experience was one of the worst I've ever encountered. I've never had such a difficult time taking food back to me room. The next day, I spoke with guest services, showed them the photos, etc. They offered to move me into a different room, but there was still the problem with dining. They wouldn't be able to fix that. So I ended up going to stay in a different resort - a much nice place, the Lighthouse Pointe at Grand Lucayan Resort. I will review the Lucayan Resort seperately so back to the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach... I had purchased a diving/room combo package. The dive shop is only for hotel guests so I ended up keeping my room at the Wyndham. I kept my diving gear there but would take a taxi back to the Lucayan Resort. So for the duration of my stay, I taxied back and forth between the Lucayan and Wyndham. Once I finished diving, I checked out two days early. The front desk would not refund the two nights I did not stay (I pre-paid for the dive/room package). So it was a horrible stay. The two positive things I will say is the dive shop was great. Wonderful staff. And I was able to complete my Advanced Open Water Diving certificate - which was the reason I came to the Bahamas. The other thing was the one time I did eat from the buffet, what I got from the buffet was very good. Large pieces of white chicken sauteed in an almond sauce. I added rice and seasoned fried potatoes and they were all excellent. So, if you want a resort that has rooms that looks like the weekend after spring break just ended, go for it. I did use one of the public bathrooms when I first got there and it smelled like p*ss. It is a busy resort with lots of activities. At night they have a "disco" - music and dancing, and they have staff there whose job is to get people to dance. They were very good at it. Oh, it is worth mentioning that I arrived before check-in. The took my luggage into an open room and left it there with hundreds of other pieces of luggage. They did not tag any luggage. People were free to come and get their luggage once they checked in. Anyone could have easily taken someone else's luggage at any time. I have emailed guest services, per instructions from the ladies that were working the counter when I told the about the room and the problem with dining. I have also reached out to corporate to contact me. I'm not expecting a full reimbursement as I did keep the room for 5 nights. However, I do expect some sort of compensation due to the poor quality of the room and serious problem with dining. Just look at my photos to confirm the problems with my room. I will never stay at this hotel/resort again.

Amazing Vacation

We had such a wonderful vacation at Viva Whydham Fortuna. To be honest, I was really nervous prior to our vacation because of all the negative reviews, but man were they ever wrong! I mean, you're not staying at a Luxurious hotel, but the beach that stretches miles and miles in both directions makes you think otherwise. If you have a chance go to Banana Bay, to the left of the hotel about a 25 minute walk. Stunning views!! Go around 4pm with the low tide makes for perfect insta/fb pics! Also, we swam with the pigs in deadman's reef and what an experience that was.... so adorable! The water was the best for snorkeling or diving if that’s your thing. My husband and I spent hours in the water exploring the underwater world and we were not disappointed. So beautiful. We will be back to this resort and next time we'd like to take out son's and parents too. We are still talking about our vacation and missing is dearly. Bahamian people are most likely the kindest people we've met, and we are from Canada! Apparently we are super friendly too. Thanks Viva for a wonderful vacation and leaving my husband and I with memories we will never forget! We will be back!

Halfway through our two way week stay...we would highly recommend as all-inclusive on the island. Here’s what you get... Great beach, beautiful ocean to swim. Bartenders generous with rum - lots of tropical drink options. 3 al la carte diners - oriental, Italian and steakhouse Nightly entertainment with great lobby bar guests hang out for disco/karaoke Don’t look for 5* is adequate but not the highlight. Rooms are tropical - nothing fancy but not missing anything either.

The best vacation EVER! Stayed two nights with a cruise package.. the resort is beautifuly places directly on a private beach. Many bars and and differ dining options. Tyree, Amy, and the bar tender Dennis made my trip MUCH more enjoyable. They engaged in the activities they were teaching, answered questions, and even danced the night away with me for my birthday! Love love love the place and the people within. Will definitely be back!

Adequate week
Tue Apr 09 09:17:02 EDT 2019
My husdand and I arrived on a Friday before 3pm. The room was not ready, which was fine since check-in is 3pm. The front desk clerk did not have a friendly attitude as you might expect when you are on vacation. I would say she was very matter of fact - if you do not hand back your towel card - there is a fee, if you loose your wrist bracelet there is a fee, etc. We had to pay $15 for the use of the in room safe, which was ridiculous - the safe was in the room already. The room was ocean view in the Bimini section of the resort. The room was fine and was clean and the housekeeper knocked on our door upon arrival and asked if all was OK and let her know if we needed anything. The main "dining room" or should I say cafeteria, was adequate and much to what I would expect in a large resort. At breakfast, tea bags were not out. I asked and told that they did not have any, I asked someone else and she brought out 4 tea bags. I also asked for a styrofoam cup and was told that they ran out - this was every day until the Saturday that I left...At times drinking glasses were not available and you had to wait for the next trays to come out. Every lunch and dinner there were 3 containers of ice cream and only 1 scope. I asked if they had more than 1 and I was looked with a not too friendly attitude and told that he will look. It never happened all week. I guess they only had 1 - hope it is not lost! The 3 restaurants that you could make reservations were very good but you could only make 3 reservations for the week. You could make 3 at the same restaurant or 3 reservations at one of each restaurant. The entertainment staff was astonishingly good and were always smiling and very friendly. I dove all week and the dive staff was not as I am used to. The dive boat captain, Basil (hope I got your name correct) was great!! He helped with dive gear both getting off the boat and getting back on. The crew did not change your tanks in between dives, which is what I am used to and no fruit or snakes for your surface interval, so I took pineapple for the dining room and brought it to the boat. This is not a dive resort but a resort that has diving. I was surprised that the hotel does not offer shuttle service into town - must be some reason. The taxi drivers were friendly. No WIFI in the rooms only at bar and lobby, I think some people that were close to the bar/looby did get WIFI. The beaches and pool area were kept up nicely. All in all the trip was OK but I would not go back.
