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

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.

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

But all casinos allow smoking and it is so thick it clings to you. We could not stay long. Most have small bands and these casinos are well kept. NOT VEGAS

Another year gone and another fantastic stay. Sandra steba is a gem . She is always looking to make your stay better. Renato and Eugene at the breakfast buffet make the mornings even brighter. Frankie at the beach is always tending the property to make it shine. I love this place. The overall experience is always great. But they could... More
