The drinks definitely didn't seem to be full strength, but as most have said it is not that big of a deal as it allows me to drink longer. I have always just been a fast drinker, regardless if it is soda, water, beer, liquor, whatever. If you just want a stronger drink ask the bartender to make a double, they will be happy to oblige, or as others have said bring in your own. Last year we went to Cabo and I got some Jack just for variety. That also made a couple of new friends at the bar as they were Jack drinkers as well.
