“Awesome time in the Bahamas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The resort is located on one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen in my 44 years of traveling the Caribbean. The resort staff was friendly and accommodating for my entire stay. They were there to help me with any of my vacation needs. I would recommend this resort to anyone that wishes to vacation in a beautiful setting and be greeted by more than helpful staff.

Room Tip: Beach front is the way to stay the sunrise is excellent!

Spent 6 days here with my wife and 3 children (ages 13,12,8). We had previously stayed here in 1994 pre-kids and had a great time, so we decided to return(despite all the negative reviews). I will say this,if you're the type of person who wants to have a good time and looks at the glass half full, then you will enjoy this resort. The food was good and had enough options for everyone in my family. The snorkeling was great right off the beach and we enjoyed many days underwater exploring as a family. The other guests we spoke to were very nice and down to earth(especially our Canadian friends). We also enjoyed the kayaking and paddle boarding as well. The room was fine ( we had two adjoining), not 5 star but the price wasn't 5 star either. Good value for your dollar.

Room Tip: We stayed in the B4 section ocean view and felt it was quiet and close enough to all the activities...

We went with a group of friends April 22-26. Celebration Cruise line brought us to the island. We have been pleasantly surprised and extremely pleased with our overall experience with this vacation. I was very nervous when I read the negative remarks about this resort before I left. I don't know where those people were, but it couldn't have been this place. From the time we arrived at West Palm Beach Port to the day we returned home, we were treated with respect, kindness, helpfulness, and friendliness. The staff at the resort were waiting curbside to take our bags and lock them up for us. We weren't allowed into the rooms until 3 p.m. so this allowed us to be able to enjoy the facility and shop at the La Playa Marketplace (a short cab ride away) without having to drag our bags around with us. There were 2 bathrooms available at all times if you needed to change into a bathing suit before your room was available. They did hit us up for a 90 minute-try to sell you a time share-lecture and breakfast. We got 2 free bottles of rum, hat, beach bag, and 2 t-shirts just for listening. One of the couples (Mr. & Mrs. Claus) got a free 3 day 2 night return stay. Our room was big, clean, had a beautiful asian vibe decor with a balcony and looked out over the beach and water. One of the most beautiful views we've ever seen. We loved all of the amenities. We snorkeled and saw stingray, several varieties of fish, coral and many sea plants. Sailing on a catamaran was fantastic. So beautiful. Kayaking was fun and a challange when the water was choppy. The guys enjoyed archery and helpful hints from their beautiful instructor. We weren't brave enough to try the trapeze but enjoyed watching others. We didn't get to try wind surfing or paddleboarding because the water was a little too choppy. Drinks were free and all you could drink. However, top shelf name brand liquor was for the VIP guests only. Burgers and fries under the tiki umbrellas on the beach was our favorite lunch. So peaceful. There was a huge variety of food and dessert available each meal. We took advantage of the 10 p.m.-midnight pizza after the hilarious comedy show each night. The pool and hot tub were fantastic and never overcrowded. I can't say enough good things about our trip. You have to go and experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed. We are already planning our next trip to Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach all inclusive resort.

Room Tip: We were in the A building. We could hear the disco music each night until midnight then they toned i...

This is a great, solid 3 star resort, we have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and would put this resort and staff up against any 4 star. For the money this place is well worth it. The negative comments are obviously first time travelers or used to 5 star resorts. The beach is one of the nicest I have seen, beautiful white sand, warm clear water with fish and coral in the swimming area. Rooms are rooms, bed, t.v., shower, cleaned well and inspected every day, This resort offers a lot to keep busy, with great entertainment at night. The reason we went to this resort was not the beds or t.v. it was the dive shop.The dive crew is 10 out of 10! professional, friendly and totally fun !!!!!! the diving is amazing, vis was great, we saw sharks, grouper, rays and an abundance of fish. if you want small groups with knowledgeable divers this place rocks ! Dive sites are close and amazing. Thanks to Bernardo, Alice, Matt, and last but certainly not least Helen, see you again soon.

Room Tip: Loud music at night, if you want quiet, choose something away from the bar, (great music though)

Our family recently visited the Viva Wyndham to complete our Open Water certification and could not have made a better choice! Bernardo, Alicia, Matthew and Helen were professional, competent, and fun! The dive staff set the standards in diving and surpassed anything we could possibly imagine! The buffet had a nice selection and the beach was gorgeous! The rooms were dated but clean and comfortable and did I mention the dive staff?! I absolutely agree with the review posted on this site by cjs8 and will return as long as Bernardo, Alicia, Matthew and Helen are located at the resort.

After 2 previous trips to Viva Wyndham in Freeport, the choice on where to book our 3rd Bahamian vacation was a no brainer. The staff treated us like royalty and they were always attentive to our needs. The atmosphere was relaxed when we wanted it to be and decided to have a lazy beach day or it could be electric during the evening shows and late night parties in the bar. The large pool area and hot tub accommodated all guests without feeling crowded. Overall we've always had very positive experiences and will return again soon!
