The machines are old, there is literally NO fun vibe here. The only time it was busy was when they were offering bingo.

If you are used to the Sandals resorts then this one will disappoint! Negatives are buffet only breakfast and the items on the buffet don't change much. Lunch is either buffet or hamburgers, hot dogs and nachos. The restaurants for the evening meals are all good. Hotel is dated as is the pool and swim up bar.

Casino was very nice but needs some improvement. Didn't see a lot of people in the casino. Needs some night life or attraction.

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

Recently vacationed in Aruba - first time we stayed at an all-inclusive hotel. Hotel was nice, rooms are a bit dated though - we stayed on the First Club floor tower 2 (8th floor) and rooms were spacious, however we had a sink that didn't work, reported it to housekeeping and the front desk and it never got fixed the...

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.
