Best Things Nearby:Great shows. Spectacular casinos. Lots of great dining options.Best Things About the Resort:The inner courtyard pool area and the very friendly resort staff.Resort Experience:The resort was built in two phases.

This is a great show. It's very athletic and well choreographed like all of the Cirque du Soleil shows are. The difference here is that the theme of the show is sexuality in its many forms. Don't get me wrong. There's no actual sex on stage. At most there are some stylistically simulated sexual acts. Some of the performers are topless and some wear body suits that simulate the nude body, but there is no actual nudity. In the final analysis, it's a celebration of the beauty and artistry of human sexuality. All in all, it was a beautiful show.
