The bars close at different times. Those by the pool close by 7 PM or so. The lobby bar and the night club bar are open very late, probably 2 am if not later. The restaurants close by 11 PM.
On your question whether it makes sense to stay in preferred club, we didn't see any point spending money on it. But I think it might more worth it during high season (October - April), because they section off a private area on the beach so you don't have to worry about getting a chair, which might be a problem when the hotel is super busy. Preferred club does have a pool, but I liked the larger non-preferred infinity pool better so we spent most of our time there, plus there is a swim-up bar at the non-preferred pool. Also, they do have more premium liquor selection at the preferred bar, but at the same time, you can get the same liquor at other bars if you ask for it. Finally, they give you free wifi for a week, but again, you can buy it for $50 extra for the whole week rather than having to pay $50 or more a day to be in preferred club. Some brides said they felt preferred club was worth it because of privacy they desired, but for me personally, it was not worth the added expense.
