Not very large or busy. I lost but my husband won a couple jackpots so he would probably give better review. Casino and hotel are separate entities so if you want good drinks you need to pay for them or walk around the corner to the lobby bar and get them yourself.

The Occidental has a wonderful staff, the rooms had an Oder of mildew, but as do most resorts on the island. The beach front is the best..most huts and shade. Loved it..booked all excursions from there and the water sports right next door..perfect

We have been going to Aruba for over 13 years, we would go into the older casino and play for hours, now it's pretty quiet, unless you go around 9:30 for free bingo. Drinks are small and watered down. But you can always get on a table or on a machine

The casino is rather small, has a good pay bar, and plenty of ways to use your money. It's in a very nice high-rise Palm beach resort, and there is a lot of night life across the street-----a quick bus ride will get you to the Casino.

Actually won a little bit! To get free drinks, you had to bring them in from the hotel. Staff was freindly.
