We attended one of the performances and found that it was something different. Some how we expected something more. The dancers spin around and that is it. Having seen it once that's enough.

I believe it was about 8 PM. The hotel will arrange for pick up and return for you. I think the shows are only in the evening. It can be cool so take jacket.
