The resort, located in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas, is undergoing improvements and upgrades that touch nearly every area of the property. The improvements were designed to give guests a more welcoming experience.

Central to the resort's enhancements is an extensive upgrade of the property's leisure activity infrastructure and its most popular guest rooms. The Fortuna Beach pool area is being completely renovated with new tile, decking and other amenity enhancements.
