We had a lovely Sky Level room, with a great view overlooking the pool area and the desert beyond. Gorgeous at sunset. Overall, the hotel offers great quality, service and upscale touches that you'd find in a much pricier resort hotel.
Part of the casino is designed with the indoor/outdoor villa feel like you find in Las Vegas, with a variety of restaurant options. One recommendation for those who like a nice glass of wine and a good deal on a casual meal, try the Lobby Bar at happy hour. For $5, you can choose from a number of items, including a Kobe beef burger with their signature fries. I ordered a seared ahi tuna appetizer while my husband opted for the burger, and both were excellent. Accompanied by a nice glass of Malbec, it was exactly what we wanted that day.
The free buffet that comes with joining the Player's Club was fine. I wouldn't normally choose a buffet, but there was a wide array of choices and if you like a buffet, I think this fits the bill. Apparently, the roast beef was good. The sushi I chose was good/average, but kept up to date in terms of freshness. Also, compliments to the great customer service and staff.
We took a trip down to Tombstone, which was fun if you like an old cowboy ghost town. We just wanted to see the site of the OK Corral shootout. There's not a whole lot there but I enjoyed our visit to Big Nose Kate's Saloon.
We stayed two nights at Casino del Sol and overall, it was great value for money. And just a two-hour drive from our winter getaway in Mesa.
