I was in gumbet for summer 09 and 11 and am returning this year a day before you
We stayed in half board for summer 09, but found that the buffet style dinner was really repetitive and so for last year we opted for bed and breakfast (Stash the bread from breakfast to eat for lunch and then go out for dinner ). Dinners are sooo cheap, you can get a starter, main and a drink for around £8-10 in most places. The only ones that charge a bit more are the higher star hotels. (The magnific hotel charges about £2 more but its SO worth it, the food and service there is amazing you should deffo eat here one night! Its along the beach and I think from the beach its called 'Soho club')
As for your actual question of drinks... So many bars do ''happy hours" where its buy one get one free on pretty much everything, i imagine your hotel will to, and if you make friends with the bar tenders they give you a few freebies. Last year in gatwick duty free there was 2 litre vodka for a good price and so i just bought that and we predrunk in our room whilst getting ready and since our hotel was right next to 'bar street' we could run back in for a few cheeky vodkas when we ran out of money. The bars on bar street do charge a bit more for drinks but they're all reasonable prices. As soon as you get there you'll realise the clubs that are best suited to you, in pretty much all of them you can see into the club because they have open walls/large windows/balconys so you can see how busy it is, they're all free anyway so you can wonder from club to club and they all have drink menus around so you can just find the best deals!In my opinion I love x bar, central, one I cant remember the name and is opposite xbar (I think shakers...) and an irish themed club called temple bar which is at the bottom of the bar street hill. Theres also a new bar this year, cant remember what its called but it looks good
Have fun! Any other questions just ask!
