My dear husband woke up the other day and said, "I want to play some poker with real live poker players, no computers". Well since he is disabled and neither one of us in good enough health to drive all the way to Vegas I called Pala. Very helpful reservationist booked us a room and set us up with an... More

Buffet was great. good selection and good tasting. We were there for brunch on Sunday and they had rib eye steak, skirt steak and prime rib, lobster... More

This past week I went to the Pala hotel and casino for an ESPN fight. The hotel staff was very friendly, and the rooms were beautiful. This casino was very large and had table games. The table games were a little different then Vegas, but still fun times. The Italian restaurant was to die for, and the lamb chops were... More

A little bit out of the way - which is good. No traffic, quiet and secluded, if you like that sort of thing. We stayed for four days, three nights. There are plenty of good restaurants (and a buffet, of course) to choose from. There are no other restaurants in Pala, anyway. Staff always pleasant and very helpful. Especially Martin... More

Spontaneously, we decided to get away for a Friday night. We've stayed here before, and love the elegance of the rooms and easy accessibility from Orange County where we live. The resort feels somewhat remote, because you're about 15 minutes from the 15 freeway down a two lane road, making it feel like you're removed from the real world! It... More

Love the rooms, spa and atmosphere but the buffet tops it all. Here Thanksgiving weekend and the food out outstanding. Lobster claws, oysters, shrimp, duck, rib eye, carne asada, rose water truffles, hazelnut truffle, macadamia not ice cream and at least one hundred more items. This place never disappoints. Great job to management, house keeping and Vicki the casino host... More

Awesome!
