I really hate to brag about this place, because it is so secluded and I selfishly don't want anyone else to find out about it! But I have been there 4 times now, and will continue to return. It is just the best VACATION for those who want to lay back and listen to the sea!

Yes, there are things to do, but it you want to be a TOURIST, go to Nassau!!
This place is for relaxing.

And you can't beat the price, especially if you book directly thru the Wynham website.
Don't forget to check at the BOTTOM of the reservations page for discount groups,
like AARP. AAA, etc...

Unique Quality: Great food.
Quiet beach.
Rooms are basic, but always very clean and they keep your refigerator stocked!
Pool area is nice, but hot tub can get rowdy depending on how many kids are there.

This hotel has just recently been acquired by Wyndham. Before that, it was know as the Viva Fortuna. It is an all inclusive hotel and originally was based on Italian theme, especiallly the food.

I originally found this resort because I could pay for it using my American Airlines points. How can you beat free?!?! Once there, I was hooked! I have returned two more times since my original trip, and have two more trips planned.

The rooms are nothing special, but who stays in their rooms if they have the Carribean Sea just out the door?! There is a small refrigerator in the room, which they keep stocked with the soda of your choice. Since it is all-inclusive, there is no additional charge for these.

This is the ONLY hotel on this section of the island, so the beach is available to guests for as far as the eye can see! There are a few homes on either side of the hotel, but the beach is not blocked off and there is room to spread out and enjoy sun, sand and sea.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in an open-air dining hall. There are also 2 restaurants onsite for a change of pace. One is Italian and the other is Oriental. Wherever you chose to eat, the food is marvelous. During times when Dining Hall or Restaurants are not open, there is always something cooking in the Beach Hut...burgers, hotdogs, pizza, french fries, cold sandwiches..and the bar is open and limitless.

ACTIVITIES GALORE! Snorkeling gear and sailboats are available at no charge. Staff always has something going on either the beach or poolside during the day; scuba intro, water aerobics, yoga by the pool, beach volleyball, contests, kid mini-golf. Each night there is a show in the amphitheater and when that ends, the Disco opens up and the outdoor Pizza Kitchen starts throwing out pizzas on demand.

Mini-store, liquor store, jewelry shop, and internet access is all available onsite.

If you are looking for a self-contained quiet vacation spot, this is the place! It is cost effective, especially if you book online at the Wyndham website.

Unique Quality: The pool is at the epicenter of the complex and close to everything. The hottub is always a popular place, adjacent to the pool, but there is almost a waiting line to get into it! They could use about 3 more of them!!

Of course, you will get hit up to attend their seminars about their timeshares, but the time is well spent, even if you don't sign up. They have a nice list of things you can get in exchange for your time. I picked the coupon for 2 free days on my next visit to the resort. Quite unexpectedly, I also received a gift card in the mail, 2 months after I was there, for $75 at Samsonite.

A 10 minute taxi ride will take you into Freeport. The flea market is large, and all the international shops adjacent to that will take you more that one day to wander thru. There are also LOTS of restaurants to choose from, and the port is full of lovely yachts to drool over! This is also where you can find the boats that will take you out for a Dolphin petting trip, or Diving with the Dolphins

Our stay at the Viva Wyndham was great - it is a large complex of 6 or 8 buildings with 10 or so rooms on two stories. These are clustered around the grounds, the pool, the common areas and of course the magnificent beach and ocean. The rooms are large with TVs and numerous cable channels, bathroom was functional, had a small patio, a frig and closet.
The Wyndham is all-inclusive which means your stay includes 3 meals a day with all beverages, evening entertainment and all non-motorized sports, like snorkeling, sea kayaking, wind-surfing, etc.
I would recommend this place as I feel it was a good value, not a 6-star resort, but at least 3 and 1/2. Note: many Italians stay here and the women do sun-bathe topless, so Americans with children need to know this.

Unique Quality: The pool was nice, the beach is soft, white sand with palm trees and palapas and nice beach loungers for guests; the staff is young and helpful, the food is buffet-style with lots of variety.

Directions: Resort beach area, outside of Lucaya town
