“Great show, poor meal”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Tickets to this show can be bought either just for the show, the show and open bar, or the show, open bar and dinner. We bought tickets for the show, drinks and dinner at our resort, The Royal Sands, right on the property. Tickets were $89 but you can buy 3 and get one free which we did. The theatre is small and seats about 100 so all seats are great. Dinner consists of a salad, baked chicken breast, mashed potatoes, vegetables and cake. The main reason I give the food a 1/10 is because the dim pink lighting makes all the food look pink. If you closed your eyes the chicken was ok but because it looked pink like it was raw none of us could stomach it and the same with the other food. SKIP the dinner! Open bar is a deceiving term as you could only get a couple beers, margaritas, daiquiris, piña coladas, tequila shots, and limited mixed drinks if you told them how to make them, soda. The service was excellent and drinks kept coming during the show. The show was really good with jugglers, acrobats, tight rope walker right over our heads, dancers, hilarious clowns and other amazing acts. I have been to most of the cirque de soleil shows and considering the limited size of the venue this was a great show. Dinner is at seven, show was from 8-9:45. If they changed the lighting it would make a big difference on the food so skip the dinner. Thinking about that pink chicken now turns my stomach.
