We are considering a trip to Freeport in late November or early December of this year. The two places we are considering staying for a week are the Viva Wyndham Fortuna and the Island Seas Resort. As RCI members, we can get either on an exchange.
We would be traveling with 3 children (2, 4, and 12). At the Viva Wyndham we would have all meals inclusive for (I believe) about $900 for the week. At the Island Seas we would do a lot of cooking in the unit and sample the local fare on occasion.
I'm curious if anyone has recommendations between the two places for someone traveling with small children. Both have good and bad reviews aplenty. We don't expect a lot - a clean place and decent amenities, hopefully reasonably friendly staff. Is one better location wise for seeing some of the island? Does one have a substantially better beach than the other?
Finally, we've never to the Bahamas before. Would this be a good time of year to visit? We'll have plenty of snow on the ground here then, so it doesn't need to be hot, but the kids would enjoy being able to get into the pool and wade in the ocean now and then.
