Weekender guests can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, barbecues and open jam sessions out by the pool during the day, and live music every night starting at 8pm. Insomniacs are invited to gather in DJ Del Villareals' "I Hate To Sleep Club" in the Banquet Room beginning nightly at 2am for drinks, dancing, and jam sessions.
