Other than a sax player in the lobby bar, and the nightly shows (not that great), & the "casino"(which only opens at 8pm), there is NO entertainment! the pool & the POOL BAR closes at 7PM!!!

This was are biggest dissapointment!, there was never a beach party, LIMBO, barbeques etc.. are room was steps from the beach bar & beach, & the poolbar/pool, and when we would retire for the night sometimes around 10pm,(or later) everything was closed! all you hear are the crickets churping.....

This hotel leaves you with only 2 choices after dinner, the casino, or the nightly show, this is a direct attempt to heard us into the casino for obvious reasons....which was ok with me, because i like to gamble, but if you dont like gambling, your out of luck for evening activities! or stuck watching a very amature show. Oh and the casino is also the sports bar & the mini disco, and has the best/only working AC.

During the day, I did see/hear some kind of loud pool activity....drunk arobics we called it, where there was an instructer.....but I only saw this once out of the 8days we were there.

There is nothing to do at this resort, except eat & drink, and lounge by the pool or beach, which are both beautiful!

Trini- yes the drinks are free at the casino, and you can just hang and watch tv. They also have couches and chairs to sit at to watch the games which we thought was nice and comfortable if you dident want to sit at the bar....just watch out cause their all Boston fans in the DR LOL......go Yankees!
