    Hi there, We are a early-20s couple interested in this resort. Just curious how other young couples found it? Good night life or does everything close down at 10pm? Interesting stuff to do that isn't just kid oriented? Thanks for all the help.

    We are coming in May for a wedding, is there any theme nights that happen? Like Jamaican or Caribbean or only nightly shows?
