Stayed here with my son in separate rooms. We both enjoyed our time here. The casino is fun and there are a lot of women around trying to pick you up. What's wrong with that? I had heard that the drinks and food were expensive, but I did not think so, so I guess that's relative. Beers were $2 and... More

This is the Valhalla for the single male traveler. Lots of pretty, little things prancing around trying t catch your attention. Remember: whenever visiting such places, be sure to have your wits about you though. My only real complaint is that the casino seems to run by arbitrary rules; the minimum bets seems to change according to the phase of... More

If you can dream it happens here gambling girls drinks and good food. At a reasonable price. There is security on site if your entertaining in your room and run into problems. All guests accompanying you upstairs are screen and id has to be handed in. Robbery is a small concern.

the rooms were kind of worn out and smelled like cholrine-gone-bad. Not sure if this is a good place for children. My teenage son was really happy about the other patrons and would disappear for an hour at a time after asking us for money. I'm not sure what was going on there but he was almost mad when we...

Not a family place as it is simply a brothel and casino. There are lots of girls from Colombia and the Dominican Republic that have residence permits to live in Costa Rica based on being trafficked to Costa Rica via sham marriages to old Costa Rican men.
