There is only one Casino Resort in San Diego. The rest are just places to gamble. My wife and I had planned a trip to Pala, then learned my daughter and grandchildren were coming to visit. We called Pala to try to get adjoining rooms and were told they were full. Next we called our casino host, David Rios, and... More

We stayed two nights in their very nice hotel. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. They offer free bottled water in the room. The bathroom was large with a tub, separate shower, large double vanity. Nice towels and amenities. In room safe. The staff were very pleasant during our stay. The casino is fair sized but the smoke... More

If you love to wine taste, but also want to do something more, this is a great option. While we looked into staying at one of the winery resorts, lots of them didn't have many options for food or entertainment, nor did they have pools. We hit up a few wineries during the day and went here for the evening.... More

If you plan on staying at the Pala Casino, you better plan on checking in after 4 pm otherwise you will be attended to very rudely. This is my first and last time I will patronize this place. Came here to see a concert staight from the beach and wanted to get cleaned up beforehand, looks like that is not... More

At first I thought having a wedding here at the Pala would be tough to pull off. The Pala (and the coordinator) did a nice job and the space was wonderful. There was an Alice in Chains concert just a few feet away and most of the wedding guests were oblivious. That in itself is a major score for the... More

Fair to middling.... All the same level outdoor seating ... You better like to stand the whole concert. Stage is adequate in size but higher would've been better. Only one (semi-)big screen. Sound was fine. (alice in Chains rocked!) ... Bars were jammed. Security wasn't interruptive of the 4:20 crowd.... Typical casino: loud, smoky. Parking in the four story parking... More

First lets say Pala offers many promotions from giving away a car every Friday(you need to be present to win) to free concerts for 60 plus on Tuesdays and for everyone on Saturdays. We saw the band WAR (paid event) at the comfortable outdoor venue and could not have had a better time. We have enjoyed the Tuesday concerts several... More

Hotel was very nice. Hotel room was very clean. The bathtub was nice, came with complimentary sea salts. The bed was comfortable. Casino was fun. Make sure to get a rewards card. Accumulated enough points for a free buffet. Buffet was expensive but worth the price if you eat seafood!

Totally disappointed in in this resort. Was asked to leave the pool area and another out door area because we had our three month old grandson and no one under the age of 21 was allowed. One employee actually told the only place for our grandson was our room. Our room was ok, but in general, this is barely three... More
