When most people think of the Bahamas they think about luxurious hotels that are usually out of their price range, but right now it’s time to think about resorts that are so cheap that you can’t afford not to go. At the moment you can get a room at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort in Freeport, Bahamas for only US$205 per night for two people on an all-inclusive basis.
We recently discussed the math of this, but even without reading about that it should be obvious that at a price this low it’s almost as cheap as staying home. And better still, Freeport, Bahamas is one of the closest and cheapest to reach of Caribbean destinations, so the whole trip is affordable to almost anyone.
A Superior Room at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort for US$205 per night, all-inclusive, for two people. An Ocean View room is only US$223 per night for two, and it’s hard to imagine that extra $9 per person not being worth it to get a view of the Caribbean from your bed.
This deal is only available through Expedia, our booking partner, for selected dates in the coming months. It’s 33% off the normal rate, but does not require a long stay, so this is available even on a 2 or 3-night weekend visit.
Drinks by the beach or pool, or both
With 276 guest rooms this is a medium sized resort for this area, but it’s packed with amenities and included activities, so there’s no way you’ll get bored even on a visit of a week. The photos are enough to show that it has a magnificent beach with turquoise water, but there’s also a freshwater swimming pool with lounge chairs and a pool bar, so whether you like sand or not you’ll have a beautiful place to relax.
The resort also has 3 restaurants, so you’ll be able to choose whatever you are in the mood for if the large buffets don’t seem like enough. Of course the drinks are included here as well, so it’s an even better deal for those who like a cocktail or two while they are relaxing during the day, and then a few more after a nap so they go well into the night enjoying the provided entertainment.
A convenient location that is ideal for shorter visits
If you have saved up for a weeklong vacation then this is a fantastic deal that will spare your budget nicely, but even if you are looking for a resort for a 3-day weekend in the coming months, this one is perfect. Finding cheap flights to Freeport, Bahamas is quite easy from most of the US or Canada, and they are usually nonstop as well.
The resort is only 7 miles from the airport, so from the time you land until the time you are wiggling your toes in the soft sand might be only 30 minutes or so. At many Caribbean resorts, particularly those on Jamaica or the Dominican Republic, you have a few hours in a shuttle bus before you even arrive at your resort. For this reason you can come for 2 or 3 nights and maximize your vacation at a minimal expense, making this an even better deal than it first seems.
