We spent a wonderful day at Harrahs lounging by their pools (one has a swim up bar), enjoying their many jacuzzis, a fun lazy river with inner tubes provided, and lots of lounge chairs with comfy cushioned pads and lots of umbrellas...for $10 per person! The main pool is huge and only adults over 21 are allowed! The kids are all at the lazy river...it is fun to float in and then go back to the main pool! There is a casual mexican restaurant adjacent to the pool...you can eat inside, outside, or enjoy poolside service off the pool menu! Be sure to go on a weekday because it is craziness on the weekends...there was no one there on a Wednesday! One other tip...go inside the casino and sign up for your free Harrah's card and they give you $20 value right away...food, free play or pool fees...awesome!! We didn't stay overnight...just used the facilities and drove home to San Diego...about an hour away. Almost as good as a trip to Cabo!

We just spent the weekend Labor Day at this place. There is nothing around in this area and it is about 10 minutes driving from Valley view casino resort. There is not enough parking and only Vallet parking available while the parking garage is in construction. It was very crowded but does not have the fun atmosphere you expect...we just played slot machine and black jack table with no luck and ate at the buffet diner for $25 pp with average food. It is a little too far from Los Angeles and nothing special to bring us back to this resort again...

I placed a bid and won a get-a-way package from a charity auction for my stay. I have never visited this hotel/casino before so this was our first time. When I called in to claim my package the guest services lady was super nice she set up everything and even advised me to call ahead to book some spa services for my wife as they fill up fast. Upon arrival check in was a breeze and our room was very modern, clean and spacious.
We ate dinner at the buffet the first night and it was great, except they ran out of oysters too fast.
We signed up for the Harrah's playing card, and my wife won food credit and I won gambling credit so that was pretty cool.
We both forgot to bring our swimming clothes so we didn't get out to the pool at all.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a tower room it was nice.

Rincon means the corner in Spanish and the Harrah's Rincon is a beautiful little corner of the world that sits like a little oasis. It's tucked in the mountains, a beautiful drive to get there. The rooms are beautiful, we were on the 20th floor with a wonderful view. The Dive swim area was amazing, with a little lazy river float ride, several waterfalls, beautiful surroundings, and the mountains in the background framing it all.
They have an amazing all you can eat buffet with crab legs that just won't quit, and everything else wonderful under the sun that you can imagine. It was a spectacular evening with a dear, old friend!

Room Tip: I liked the view from high up...

We spent last Monday at Harrah's and we had a blast. My husband and I have stayed here once before just the two of us and after that trip we decided that we would only go back if we had a group of people with us and here is why. When you are there you just don't leave ( mainly cause there is nothing else really around it) and if you gamble that can get a little scary! With a group of people it was awesome, we spent most of the say at the pool which was a blast because on Mondays it is Industry day and drinks are half price and the have a DJ spinning. The lazy river was a blast with all of us training along with each other! We then all went and got ready for diner which ended up being at their Chinese restaurant which was tasty. The only other choice is the buffet, the steak house ( which is kinda spendy!) or at the Cafe. After that it lead to gambling of course but with a whole bunch of us we keep each other entertained and had fun. Overall the property is nice ( they are doing some upgrading so there is some construction noise 24/7) they have upgraded the pool area since the last time we were there and it is a good upgrade!! Like I said, great place to go with a group of friends for one night .... and one night only!!

Room Tip: try to ask for a room that isn't near the construction area of the hotel!!
