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

I dont know why but for being a nice resort, you would think the casino would be better. It was a decent sized (comparable to others) but just did not give you the casino feel vibe.

The casino was never crowded and the dealers were not happy to be at work and is was visible on the loss we were taking on the game tables. One guy there in the afternoon over the slots was the best guy there with a great attitude. Sorry I did not get his name

This casino is the perfect size for some enjoyable gaming entertainment during your down time at the resort. They have a nice selection of slots, a few very good video poker machine with a free bonus that doubles all wins... More

My husband described it best..."it is like someone's garage with three tables" We played roulette and they spinned the ball very fast and barely gave us time to finish our bets...seemed a bit fixed.

The resort is very outdated. I upgraded to the Royal Club section and they offer the exact same rooms and views as the rest of the hotel. My initial room had a clogged drain, and with my second shower in this room there was black residue that started to come out of the drain while the water was up past... More
