    We had our bachelor/ette party at Nikki Beach a few nights before the wedding. Nikki Beach is located at the Westin Resort in PV.

    The place is beautiful. You walk up these stairs to get to the front door then walk down a grand staircase once you get inside. There is a restaurant inside but we walked straight outside. On the beach are a bunch of matresses and pillows. They also have these cool elevated canopy beds that are fun to lounge on. The #1 selling point about Nikki Beach is the pretty atmosphere. It's stunning. Everything is white on the beach and lit up at night, it's awesome.

    What we didn't find so awesome were the music and drinks. To be fair the music just wasn't our type. They play mainly Euro-techno music if that makes sense. We were able to make special requests and they played them, so the DJ has more music but at least on the night we went they mainly played one kind. After a few drinks though it was less annoying and at some point we danced to it.

    The drinks were about $9 each which is normal in the U.S. and a little high for PV, but we were at a Westin so it was to be expected. They weren't very strong, however, and the waiter that served us was not too friendly. One time we ordered a round of lemon drops and they gave us lime drops....they said they didn't have lemons. Okay, maybe they don't and it's nothing to cry about, but when you bring a $100 tray of drinks that we didn't exactly order it can bug you (like maybe the waiter could have said we have no lemons before the lime drinks were made and billed).

    There were also some sort of cirque-du-soliel type acrobats that did random performances. Nothing announced, but they would suddenly appear and start doing cool stuff then disappear, and so on. One of them crawled up behind me on a bed I was sitting on and scared me.....I didn't see him coming. It was pretty funny. Overall I say it's a great place to go, awesome if you like techno. Admission is free on Thursdays so it's a nice starting off point if you plan to club-hop. It was sweet to lay on the beach and look up at the stars while being at a club. I can't say enough about how pretty it was and that's reason enough to check it out.

      We stayed at the Westin when we vacationed in PV a couple of years ago and loved the fact that a cool, hip club was on our property. We ended up there one night and it was great, however, on nights when we wanted to sleep you could hear the music pounding until 3am - 4am. A bit annoying, but definitely a beutiful spot if anyone is looking for a club night.

            Nope, no reservations needed. You'll enjoy it. We went to the Zoo also and I'll do a review of that tonight.

                A guest at Dreams told me they went there. She said it is also very pretty, all white. It is indoors, upstairs from the restaurant. I think there is a separate club...maybe this was just the bar that they went to? Prices were also high according to the girl who told me about it, but she said there was a nice view and she had a good time.
