We stayed at the Occidental Resort and got ready to go to the Casino our first night on the Island only to find out the it was closed down. No one seemed to know why it was closed just that it was closed. It would have been nice to know prior to our visit.

We stayed @ this resort several year ago & decided to "check it out" while visiting Aruba again. We enjoyed their casino before & thought we would try our luck while passing time.

We liked this casino 3 years ago, this time it was very depressing and unwelcoming. They took out most of the fun modern machines and are using older ones. Plus everyone was playing Bingo and it was so quiet we felt like we were intruding in a private club and our slot machines making noises was disturbing to the locals.

Having been in this casino a few times I have seen that it is not as clean, a lot of the slot machines are old and it isn't even half as appealing as a place to go to as it was two years ago.

not worth the money, look for a hotel not under construction, and better ocean views and better food!!!

This little casino is attached to the Occidental Grand... the slot machines never paid out, the tables were cramped and when bingo started the locals seemed to invade the casino and took all the seats to the slot machines. Donated $20 to one machine the first night and never went back.

Clean, nice, tables were $25 so a little steep but did ok on the slots. It seemed less smokey than other casinos.

Wow! It was a Monday night and we walked into the casino to find out that it was more of a bingo hall! Go somewhere else.. It's not worth the walk up from the street
