There are many nice casinos but my favorite has to be at the Marriott. Always a lot of action. The only thing it's missing is a sports book.

The Alhambra does offer good action...unless you are looking for a Poker Room...they dont have one. When I want to play Poker I go to the Holiday Inn and set in on thier $1/$2 No Limit Texas Hold em game. I believe that they do offer Carribean Poker and Three card Poker on the floor, but they have no "Poker room" . Staying at the Tam you will find that the complimentary shuttle that leaves from the lobby area very convenient. It will take you right to the Alhambra after stopping at the Divi, and back....and it runs pretty much all night.

We just returned yesterday and only went to the Radisson casino and thought it was great. We met many people from other resorts and people that visit Aruba two or three times per year and the majority always come to the Radisson casino no matter where they are staying. They say it is the friendliest and has the most variety. Definitely not Vegas but they have a wonderful variety of table games at $5 minimum (three card poker, caribbean stud, texas hold em, let-it-ride, black jack, roulette, four card poker, etc). They don’t raise their minimum on the weekends on anything like that. They have higher priced tables for the big rollers. They also have a poker room and daily poker tournaments. Slots are open at 12 noon and the tables open at 5PM. Craps and some other tables don’t open until 9PM. We walked over to the Westin Casino and found it to be about the same size, maybe slightly smaller. We didn’t stay but just looked around.

We just got back and visited a number of casinos. The Marriott was nice, but was not one of our favorites. It had a lot of "action" in that it was generally always crowded, but what turned me off was the high minimums on the tables. Even on a weekday you'd count yourself lucky to find $15 BJ - it was mostly $25. They even had $100 and $200 BJ!!! And the $200 BJ table was empty the whole time I was there, but they wasted a dealer on it "just in case".

Our favorite casino for tables and slots was the Radisson. Small, but not crowded (but also not deserted). Great dealers and staff.

However, for poker my favorite was the Holiday Inn. The only poker rooms now are the Radisson and the HI. The Radisson seemed to attract higher limit tables. Even at the 2/5 NL table (the only NL they had) people were betting over a hundred before the flop regularly. At the HI they had 2/2 NL and it was a much "calmer" game. Also, there were a few more "fish" at the HI and I made quite a bit of money. (In fact, enough to cover my losses from the rest of the week.)

Let me know any other questions you might have. Good luck!!!!
