This hotel was a great place to stay for the price. We paid around 800 dollars and didn't have the highest expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. Never before has a hotel been much better than I anticipated. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. It was definitely worth the room upgrade in this hotel because some of them were really close to noise and didn't have the best view.
Entertainment: We went to every single show except for one and they were all amazing. The staff didn't just put on a silly show they put in serious time and effort into their shows. We saw them practicing every day all day long. They had a huge group of talented people. One of the shows included a trapeze show with multiple staff members in the air at once. They have a great energy and the shows are always entertaining and not too cheesy. They put on a bonfire on one of the evenings which was pretty cool.
The food at the resort was amazing! They had good hot dogs, burgers, and fries, all of the time. There was a pizzeria that was open until 2am every single night and the beach bar served food all day long.
The buffet always had rice, beans, potatoes, shrimp, all types of bread to make your own sandwiches and breakfast was excellent as well. They served yogurts and fresh fruit along with omelettes or croissants, bacon, sausages, you name it.
There was two a la cartes....Oriental and Italian...they actually forgot our food at the Oriental but we tried some salmon which was excelled and the Italian was amazing!! The lasagna, ravioli and pizza were excellent.
Drinks: Drinks were only served until 2am even though we were told that they were 24 hours when we booked. But it was okay that way.
They have photographers working during the day and night that take your pictures and then try to sell them to you but they are pretty good at what they are doing.
Pool: Pretty shallow and pretty cold...not many people in it, however there is a hot tub that is actually hot!
Beach: Really clean, really nice. Lots of people trying to sell you shells and hollering at you to come to them since they can't cross a certain point...ignore them if you can!
Notes: The safe costs money every day and says it inside the door where you can't really see it! It's only 3 dollars a day but something to be aware of.
Port Lucaya: Definitely a great place to visit...there is many shops and a market that has ALL of the same things that you'll find in the gift shop for about a third of the price. People working in the market can be quite pushy for you to buy things but it is worth it. There is a Pizza Hut and a Subway in town.
-The After Deck grill was AWESOME FOOD!! Best shrimp ever! Be aware that most restaurants automatically add the fifteen percent gratuity without letting you know. Read your bills.
-Rum runners was an awesome bar as well!!! Only place open during the week at night.
Cabs: Cabs are pretty expensive and have rates from point A to point B that are pretty much non-negotiable. Renting a car for 24 hours costs about the same as a cab fare so I would recommend that over cabbing.
SeaWorld Explorer: This was an excursion we went on which was neat...a half submerged boat where a diver went into the water and attracted all of the fish to the windows and found a starfish, snorkelling was also included in this trip for around fifty dollars. Pretty well worth it.
Pier One: A MUST-VISIT!! This restaurant is about 20-25 minutes away from the resort but I had the absolute best steak, potatoes and veggies I have ever had there! They feed the sharks on the hour at 7,8,9pm! Wild sharks swim up and you watch them being fed over the railing. Very cool.
Garden of the Groves: beautiful rainforest-like garden!! We fed turtles bread from our hands and had the best pina colada on a deck over a pond!! Great place!!
National Lucayan Park: If you're going to go anywhere...go there!! For 5 dollars you gain access to two caves and the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! Crystal clear water and white sand forever!
I would definitely recommend Freeport and Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach!! Awesome hotel! Great people!!
