It's a small prize game that we offer as pure entertainment. The game consists in guessing the titles of the musical pieces proposed by our DJs. We will draw the participants together forming four groups that will try to guess the song titles after having taken a dip in the pool! The group that has guessed the most songs will be the winner of the contest!


A competition that many expect ... to dance during the Saturday After Party. The couples will be formed randomly and our DJ will delight us with a musical selection of non-swing tracks. The couple who will most entertain the judges and the public will win the dance challenge.
