... stumpy sausage like fingers, decided it would be a "treat" to press EVERY button for every floor. Oh what a treat that was...they all smelled of pancake syrup, gross.
Let's see, let's see, let's see...Oh yeah first port of call was the Grand Bahama Island...after the cattle rush had dissipated a bit, me and Mel disembarked. First things first, I have GOT to say Melly was very brave on this whole trip and accomplished feats i never thought she would (like riding down the ...

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to travel the world! I just never thought I could do it until I was old and retired and had the money to really enjoy it. I did travel quite a bit in my early twenties to Europe and Africa and those memories are always ...

We were making good time, but had caught no fish - not even a strike - and were approximately 6 nm out from Port Lucaya around 1230 when our fishing luck changed. Dave spotted some activity in the water ahead and a bit off our course to starboard, so he quickly turned the boat in that direction and called for Donna ...
... that tells you how stringent the cruise line is about dress codes. At least they weren't in a bathrobe, as we saw one woman one morning at the buffet. Dinner was acceptable. It was escargots night. Keith’s were hot, but mine sat on the counter for 15 minutes and were only lukewarm when I got them. I had ordered some corn chowder as well,and they gave me that first. That was disappointing and would have rather had the escargot first. They would have been terrific ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Freeport
One word : WOW! This place had it all. I could write a book on how great this place is and another book on all it has to offer. p.s. did i mention you get free alcoholic drinks from dusk till dawn the whole time with the package. Five star resort all the way.
I cannot believe how wonderful the people at Club Fortuna were. They were so helpful and truly made our trip a memorable one. The room was clean and nice, the food was good, and we especially liked the shows the employees presented for us. Games, music, dancing, food, drinks and a wonderful beach, what more could you ask for.
Fourteen of us just went to Viva Fortuna for five nights the first week of Nov 2002. I have to agree with most of the other reviews. It's an "OK" place to go to relax as long as you're not looking for luxury.
We spent 2 weeks in August 2002 at the Viva Fortuna Resort. On booking this holiday we were advised by the agent that our room would be an oceanview. In the brochure it also mentioned that rooms were oceanview or garden view. We had neither. We managed to get dirt track view!! After spending most of the entire first day of our holiday going back and forwards to the reception desk we were eventually moved to an oceanview room. The rooms are very basic, not particularly clean but are air conditioned. We spoke to several people who were not happy with the rooms, mostly because of cleanliness. You definately have to keep on at the reception staff if you want anything regarding the room i.e towels and on several occasions we actually dealt with the housekeeping staff without consulting reception as it seemed more effective!
Relaxing, and wonderful in every way!
My parents have a time share at Club Fortuna and I have been going there for the past 6 years. We love it!! The rooms are just right, comfortable, and clean. The food is delicious, and the beaches are amazing.I have gone every year with my mom and my sister and we always have a blast. It is extremely safe, and total paradise. My only suggestion is to avoid going during spring break. Unless you like loud, drunken college kids, it is not a good time to go. Other than I have no complaints. If you want a quiet, peaceful, tropical, relaxed vacation, this is the place for you! Oh one more thing, the food is so great that we always go home with some extra pounds!
I guess you get what you pay for.
We just spent five nights at Viva Fortuna and I was not impressed at all. The rooms were only fair. Thank God they were air conditioned because nothing else was. The food was almost the same thing every day (Buffet Style)and nothing to write home about. The staff was not very helpfull and sometimes very rude, we were short towels almost everyday and it took almost all day to get the room made up. My wife and her friend who never went snorkling before recieved no assistance from the staff as to where to go and were yelled at for being in the wrong area.
Not everything was bad the beach was beautiful and the water great. We had a large party and made the best of it. If your young and want to party and don't need creature comforts this is for you.
We recently spent a week at the 'All inclusive' Viva Fortuna Resort in Grand Bahamas. The resort was beautiful although the room could have been maintained a bit better, (caulking, etc) but they were clean and right on the beach. The food was very good and most abundant! In fact, I gained 7 lbs in just a week. If we would have had to pay for all our food and drinks...it would have cost us an additional $1000 for sure! There was a lot to do and the snorkeling was great right off the beach. The only rather strange thing was that the maid picked up our dirty towels every am and didn't return with replacements until late in the afternoon. Rather difficult if one wanted to take an early shower! The other inconvenient thing was the phone system. They would not allow you to use your phone unless you gave them a $100 deposit. It made no difference if you had an AT&T card or not which I had. They still insisted on this which was really ridiculous. They blamed it on the 'over-seas' operator, however that was not the case as other people from different hotels had no problem calling the US, without any deposit.
Recently booked a trip on-line to Viva Fortuna on Grand Bahama Island. The resort has some potential but if you're looking for a luxury resort, it's not for you. Some of the rooms are really dated. If you're going there, don't hesitate to complain about your room. Better ones are available. Complaining to them in front of potential customers, as we did, resulted in an immediate room upgrade. If you can get past the room situation, the beach is lovely and the activities around the pool are fun. The food is okay. The main restaurant is not fully enclosed and tends to be hot. Again, if you're looking for gourmet, you won't find it here. The excursions off the property are expensive. If you can stand driving on the "other" side of the road, it's cheaper to rent a small car for a day to see the island. The nightly entertainment is amateur-ish but the entertainment staff tries hard! Some of the shows are not family oriented so, be warned!!
