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)

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.

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!!!!

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!

Do not waste your money. I got a "deal" from Vacation Express, however many people on the trip stated they found it on Groupon for much less than I spent. I should have added another six hundred dollars and went to a reputable hotel. First the staff that greeted us was very unfriendly. There was one woman who was very nice, Phalen, who set us up for a promotional tour to buy time shares. Let me first start with my room-DIRTY. Old comforter with horrible brown accent pillows on the bed. The curtains had food stains in them and were dirty on the bottom. Bathroom had brown stains on the wall. Room service was horrible. You got one wash cloth and towel a day. You could go out to the beach and come in at 4pm-the room would be clean with NO WASH RAGS OR TOWELS. After calling, and walking to the front desk, wash rags and towels showed up 2 hours later. We stayed from Monday to Friday and everyday washrags and towels were an issue. The cleaning staff acted as if they didn't understand your request for towels. The cleaning staff manager called our room the night before we checked out asking about our room cleanliness and stay. We told her our complaints and extra towel and wash cloths were given. Thanks but its a week late ...The beach is super rocky. They need to spend the money to remove the rocks. Very scary trying to get into the water for a swim. My foot was cut. The food was horrible at the buffet. And since I stayed 4 nights, I was only eligible for the restaurants two nights. You have to sign up for your choices when you arrive. The Asian and Viva Café were very nice and this is the only place we received smiles from the staff. The bartenders acted as if it was a bother to serve you drinks. Even with tips. The sales pitch was if you bought the timeshare they would upgrade you to the better rooms, VIP style, all restaurant dining, basically a better experience. Although the rooms were nice, it still wasn't worth a $11,000 bill to upgrade to a 3.5 star experience. The pool area was nice, especially at night, however the beach beds were filthy. When I pointed out the cleanliness issue to the man trying to sale to us, he stated it cost too much money to change them out and hurricane season was about to start. So I guess dirty cushions were okay, because it wasn't worth it to make guest feel the area was clean. Overall this is a high school trip hotel/maybe a Spring break hotel but that may be pushing it...Most of the guest were complaining and several along with myself were just "happy to be leaving". I wish I had paid attention to the 3.5 rating, but it was more like a 2.5...RUN

Budget resort - nice beach for the money

Stayed at the all-inclusive Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach for 5 days/4 nights through a Groupon/Sunwing promo. Overall, I found the strong point of the resort to be the beach/water itself, as well as the staff. I stayed in a “Garden view with terrace” suite, #3133. The room was adequate for my needs: sleeping & showering. The room was a little bit tired and could use a renovation, but it served it’s purpose. If you are looking for top-notch room amenities, you will not find it at this resort, but it is also not neglected or completely run-down, either. No lack of hot water, etc., in my room as other guests have reported. The food at the buffet, Junkanoo, was also adequate. Not bad, not phenomenal. You would more likely than not find something to suit your taste at each meal of the day. Viva La Pizza was a nice option for evening dinner. The pasta dishes were just as good as the pizzas. I recommend giving Viva La Pizza at least one try during your stay. On that note, upon check-in, you must at some point make your way to the guest services desk and make dinner reservations. This is located across from the check-in counter and is also where you can book shore excursions, etc. The beach itself was the highlight of the trip. It is cleaned and raked on a daily basis and was beautiful. There are plenty of beach chairs to go around for seating, and also a roped-off VIP area for those wanting to upgrade. Several palm trees dot the beach to provide shade, if desired. The water was clear and warm... very inviting. Being all-inclusive, the drinks flowed all trip long and were great. Tip - bring a large drinking cup, mug, etc. with you on your trip and the bartenders will fill it to the brim with your favorite alcoholic drink without any hassle (tipping a dollar or two prior to getting your drink got better results - more booze!). Kayaks, boogie boards and other recreational water items were available at the beach for use. To sum up, I would rate this resort at 3.5 stars. I would recommend this resort for budget-minded travelers who really want to spend the majority of their time enjoying the beach, Caribbean water and free-flowing drinks, and/or use it as a hub for off the resort excursions and visiting other areas of the island.

Disappointed with the beach

We were disappointed with the beach,so many rocks,one lady twisted her ankle trying to go out to swim,another gentleman broke his toe,the only explanation was,the storms but Cuba had the same storm and the beaches were amazing-that was a month before we went to the Bahamas.if they want people to visit there then they need to clean part of the beach ,at least people can use the beach and swim as that is why they travel there,,the food was good,the people seem very unhappy there.the rooms were just ok,,the resort was average,,,we will not be going back

You don't have to go further reading after this. I am always amazed by what people complain about. If you want a 5 star resort go to a 5 star resort, this is a 3 to 4 star, and it was everything I wanted. It was an easy check in, you arrive early and can't get your room until 3, keep that in mind, but they will get you your wrist band and you and start what you wanted to do all along, have a drink, eat and be on the beach. My wife and I had no problems whatsoever during our stay and there is plenty to do or you can just soak up the Caribbean! You are not in your room very long and it was clean and the A/C worked fine. The food was good and plenty of it, the booze was cheap but great pours, so don't complain because the Beach made this a 4 star. We met some fantastic people on our trip and I consider this a Great Place to go to.

Nice Beach, the rest not so much....

Just returned yesterday and four days was enough. I always read TripAdvisor reviews prior to visiting a resort just to get a feel for what I'm in for, and the feedback from the others was spot on. I always give a fair assessment and this time no different, 3 stars may be generous. Check in: As you've read, strict 3 p.m. check in. A little strange how they do it, but it works. Beach: The beach and water is amazing, yes rocky when you enter, but with a pair of water shoes on Amazon for $15, you'll be good to go. You can walk in either direction for miles and it is beautiful with some bars to stop at along the way. Food: The food is not good and has a very limited selection. Although, the Italian restaurant has good pizza. The Beach bar has good snack food and did the trick during the day. The buffet is very average with several selections including many flies, but that is hard to control. They have Bacon, but keep it away from the guests, just ask and you'll get some or have to wait for more. Drinks: Alcohol is very bottom shelf but they are generous when serving the drinks. The downside is only two bars with long line ups, but the bartenders do move things along pretty quickly, especially if you tip. If you like bottled water you can buy it or get it from the machines, just bring your own cup and they have no straws. Room: We had an Ocean front room and it was decent and served the purpose, but no hot water as others have commented. Staff: Hit or miss even if you don't tip. The cleaning staff are generally nice, at least the lady that cleaned our room. We found most of the female staff are not very pleasant at all, especially in the buffet restaurant, they look like Zombies. Be prepared to be mauled by someone wanting you to become a member, just politely say no thanks. We met Andrew Styles who takes care of the members, very nice gentlemen, so seek him out and he will help you with whatever you need. There are a good portion of staff who are very hard workers, so bring some money for tipping as some don't make as much as others. Transportation: Only about a 15 - 20 minute drive from the airport. If you need transportation or excursions, I would recommend Nako Brice they are prompt and reasonably priced. Lastly, don't go the airport hungry or in search of gifts as the food is limited and the prices for anything is outrageous.
