Ughh. this place was so stinky. You could smell the smoke before you even walked in. We checked it out while staying at the Holiday Inn. From what our friends said, the payout on the slots was absolutely awful. I have to wonder how they have those regulated. Much different than Vegas, obviously. The most popular thing was bingo and...

A smokey casino for sure, it is fun if you can breath through the smoke. Have had luck here! Bingo is always fun!

This is an awful casino. Dark, ugly, and old. I used three slots and all three slots had an issue. One only printed out a partial pay out voucher, so an attendant had to go with me to the cashier so I could get my payout. The second machine "ate" the voucher as it fed into the machine, another trip... More

It is the worse casino on the island of Aruba!!!!!! They really need to improve on the slots. They need more of a selection. People in there (the help is so (UNFRIENDLY). I refuse to gamble in there. I go elsewhere, where the help is friendly.

Very depressing casino. The smell of cigarette smoke is overwhelming. They still allow smoking in the casinos in Aruba. It was not enjoyable. We stayed less than 5 minutes.

This casino was very small and the poker machines (there were only a few) did not have very good odds for the players. We left our player's cards at home and they were not able to give us another one as their machine was broken.

It had all the table games, a poker room and a sports book. The dealers were hit or miss. Some were friendly but others didn't say much.

This casino has not changed in the last 10 years, it still has a very strong smoke odor, the people are not too friendly and most of the machines are the older type.
