Saw the 10PM show here and really enjoyed the Latin music and the Cuban dancers perform close to my table. Cost is reasonable for a floor show + drinks.

The place was a charming dinner show atmosphere and the talent was excellent. The only suggestion would be to lower the volume as everything was too loud to truly enjoy the talented performers.

There were only adults there on the night that we went. I recommend you ask the Concierge at your hotel and if they don't know the answer directly, they would likely be willing to call and ask for you.
