What is The Cocoon REALLY like?

We are spending two nights including New Year's Eve at The Cocoon in Vang Vieng. I am reading very scary reviews and I am wondering if anyone can fill me in on what the place is really like?

Also, any suggestions for New Year's Eve for a 60 year old couple? Obviously we are not interested in a drunk bash! And we leave early New Years day for Luang Prabang so I think we need to be careful about hangovers on that road!

The Cocoon was recently taken over by new management which should have solved the problems. However I am hearing rumours that the new management have left due to threats from the former management.

I would really try to avoid a hangover with the road trip to Luang Prabang the next morning :)

I have been in Vang Vieng and found that it is very touristy, full of backpackers. This area is more suitable for the adventure lovers.

Have a nice trip!
