My boyfriend and I wanted to take a night to ourselves and decided to check this place out. I have been to Vegas many times, but have never ever seen so many prostitutes in one place at the same time. It was literally crawling with them. The casino is small and feels dirty and dingy. We stayed for about five... More

The casino has 6 table games and maybe 40 slot machines. This place is really the head quarters for employable companions. Casinos are for entertainment purposes only and this one provides the entertainment just not in the form of gambling.

This place was a joke! It is super small with about 30 slot machines. The guys were disappointed there wasn't blackjack tables and they actually played a game called rummy that they didn't like. If your looking for hookers then this place is for you! We stayed a short time and couldn't wait to leave!!

My husband and his cousin love gambling so we thought we would go here — a group of eight total — for dinner then stay to play. Wrong. We sat down for dinner on the beach. So far, so good, that is, until the hookers started showing up in droves. First there were two at the bar, one spread eagle... More

It is a very small casino with slots, about 3-4 blackjack tables and one roulette table. Drinks aren't free when you gamble, we made the assumption they were. It's crawling with wall to wall hookers. My friend and I were the only girls there and we were with our husbands so the "girls" didn't bug us. The douchey guys follow... More

Stumbled in there on a Saturday night and it just looked like there was a good amount of shady looking people in there, other then that it looked pretty cool

I took my mom there because she likes to play penny slots. Yes the machines are old American machines I think. Its annoying to get the machines to take the Costa Rican money but the barmaid ran and got us new bills to use. Yes there are prostitutes working but they were nice enough and they would go out and... More

Went around 8:00 pm, casino very crowded, lots of working girls. I tried to do the slots but would not take the money so out of frustration, I gave up. No one walking around taking drink orders (or none that I saw), which meant you had to leave the slots and go to the bar. Not impressed. There is a... More

Very small casino. The pool bar is the best people watching area in Jaco as nite falls. Sit at a table and watch the married American men who told their wives they were going fishing with their buddies make fools of themselves with the local working girls. Classic!
