Starting just before dinner, the Club Med formula is to offer some form of constant entertainment until the night club opens late into the evening. Usually this consisted of starting with "Bar Games" - i.e. trivia, then after dinner, a dance class, followed by the evening performance in the theater. The performances are the same pre-prepared-sent-from-HQ Club Med shows you see everywhere. The quality of them depends entirely on the GO staff for that season. Usually they were entertaining. The Mariachi band is definitely worth checking out.
After the performance, the next venue is usually the night club. The Night Club was not that packed when we were there. Of course, the club was only half-full. They often had events/games before giving up the floor to the
Night club. The DJ was spinning mostly American top 40 from CD's. There was a bit of European top 40 thrown into the mix too.
Once a week, most of the young uns head out to Daddy-O's (or whichever American dance club provides the biggest kick-back to CM that season). The cover was around $20 and got you free drinks for the night. We didn't go so I can't comment beyond that. The pool was nice and empty the next morning though!
