There is a show of some kind every evening - bands, dancers, etc. Usually around 8:30-10 or so, After that, some people head to bed and others head to the lobby for later night drinks and cocktails and others head upstairs to the disco and bar up there for drinks and dancing.

It is a fun resort - there are usually a fair share of night owls. Enjoy!

CBay was bringing in local bands when we were there and they employ house dancers to get the crowd on its' feet - it is usually quite lively. I felt it was some of the best entertainment we've experienced at any resort.

Hi lee b,

Unless you are going with a crowd you will find it quite boring in the evenings,the entertainment isnt that good.When people say there is something on every evening ,yes there is but in the lobby bar it is mainly background music.The main show isnt that good and then it is only on for an hour or so,then the majority of people dissapear to bed as they are families.As for the upstairs bar there is nothing going on up there only kareoke one night a week,plus they have a charity casino night which you dont win on they take your money and thats it.It all depends if you get a lively group in for a wedding or something then you need to friend them and have a laugh,the disco is always empty unless these type of groups are there.The resort is mainly geared around families and they do a great job for this group,if you are a couple then to have fun you need to meet others then you will have a good time.Sorry if this rains on your parade but the majority of people on this forum who give good reviews are families which gives out the wrong impression.I would like to say we had an ok holiday and i am not slaging this place off,but its not what the brochures say,however enjoy it and hopefully have some fun.

magsCoventry - maybe you could elaborate as to what you mean by the "main show". As I have written, it used to be a local band every night except Wed, when they had Karoake in the main lobby / lounge. I thought the bands were great and the house dancers made it quite lively with getting people up to dance.

We were their last feb entertainment was great don't miss the reagay band at the adult pool ..

Their is a band who plays country western music in the main entertainment center but after he is done with that he goes reagay

They also have some different music in the main bar area at or after dinner we found the all the entertainment good

You wouldn't be disappointed.. If you are a drinker I would tip the bar tenders and go for a double shots in your mixed drinks. You can drink all night and not get too drunk on the standard drinks..

I would like to sujest a trip to the pitons or any other good place for snorkeling well worth the effort. On a nother note all the people we met who live on the island were very friendly people.. Enjoy your trip .. Sit on left side of plane for a view of the pitons..

Cb doesn't offer the tour any more but the guy at the tour desk got us a driver we had to walk down the long drive way to get to sugr bay beach I told him hay I am an old man and wouldn't be able to make the walk back up . They drove us back up . It was worth the effort snorkeling was great. On the way back our car broke down in front of ladera .. Ladera was on my list to go to so we stopped by and was able to get passed the gate guard but not able to enter the main lobby bar . What ia trying to say the area is not to friendly as in the management side of things but the people who live their are and are willing to help you .. If you can snorkel the pitons it's worth it but it will be a small hassle at least it was for us . I am a 55 caulk from ny.. Good luck on your trip.
