I never really feel like the resort is like groundhog day, because to me every trip is vastly different. Our pattern always seems to change, some trips we are harder in the day and don't make many nights, and just this past trip we were at Bash like every night, up very very late, and didn't see the pool till like 2:30 (which is never really the case). Our room types and locations have changed the last 5 trips. And there are a few different groups of friends we travel with that alternate. So all in all, I don't really feel like anything in 9 trips has felt repetitive. As far as the music loudness: I haven't been to to Desire, so I don't know what it is like there. And at home I don't go to clubs. I did go to an EDM event recently in Philly that quite the scene. It was also so loud you couldn't hear yourself think, let alone talk. 85% of the people there were on Ecstasy or something else, and they weren't capable of much talking anyway. IMO it was too loud like Bash, but I am sure that isn't the case for every EDM event. I do think Bash is too loud, and I don't think anyone wants that no matter their taste in music is.
