I started coming to Aruba in 1988 and this was my favorite casino. I've come every year since but this casino has lost it's luster. Only a few of the pit bosses are still there and a few of my favorite dealers but it seems so small and empty now. Too bad, I always enjoyed seeing the same great workers... More

We stumbled in to have a break from the sun and saw signs for bingo. Figured it would be fun to play. The card buying process was intense, people jumping ahead in line, no explanation given, people guarding spaces to sit with lots of cards and clothing items, etc. The bartenders were not friendly and the elusive cocktail waitress, I...

Depressing small room of slot machines, a few table games and poker corner. Doesn't seem to ever have a lot of patrons visiting.

We went to this casino twice since we were staying on property, and found it to be the most un-friendly casino we've ever visited. We thought it was a bad first night but on the second night, we even had to ask for beverage service and none was ever offered. Unhappy, unfriendly employees. Boring atmosphere. Never again.

Since we were staying at this Holiday Inn this was the closest and first place that I went to to play blackjack. I discovered that bingo rules this place from 4 to 6pm every day. The dealers don't show up until 6pm so we hung around until I could play. I played for a couple of hours, won a little... More

I went a few times and watched. It does have apoker room so if that is your thing it is good. I did not want to mess up the game and did not feel lucky for other games. It did not get to crowded.

Casino dull not very many newer slot machines. We must have arrived during a Bingo game, many people mulling around in chairs. Nothing interested me.

Cramped, dingy, and depressing this is just not an exciting and fun place to be in. The staff looks bored and so will you be ,

Small, cozy and friendly Casino. From the Dealers to the Pit Bosses they make you feel welcome. Locals as well as Tourist are welcome. Over the years I have come to know most of the dealers and pit bosses and they treat you well and make you feel welcome.

We came here but found that this is a pretty small, old casino, in need of updating. Not our favorite but just ok.
