Since we stay at the Holiday Inn every trip to Aruba, the Excelsior Casino is very convenient. There are more new machines since last year, but everything else is the same. In several areas it gets very hot and smoky. The drink waitress takes forever for such a small space and often forgets your order. The staff is friendly. Do... More

A great casino with a great atmosphere. Very awesome payouts which can be large. The frequency of payout is rather high. I would recommend joining that their Rewards program for perks and comps. especially if you're staying at the resort.

As a casino it's dark, dreary & very smokey. Table staff is rude & not friendly at all. Several mis-spins & mis-payouts on roulette. But the daily bingo they have is great! Good payouts in games for the cost to play. Locals are very friendly!

Good games, midday afternoon bingo games. Fun environment for everyone. Friendly staff, the only bad thing is I did not see that many people wining.

I enjoy playing at casinos, this is not a casino I want to be caught in, it is very old and dingy, the grounds at the Holiday Inn are awesome, the casino reminds me of some kind of illegal operation in a basement.

We only went into the Casino which was old dog cigarette smelly! The casino appears to have been the one that paid off the most than any others that we visited, however the smell kept us from staying there long. As far as the Beachfront where the Holiday in is located, it's a terrific view and pool area to visit,... More

I was super pumped to visit Aruba because it's one of the only Caribbean islands with poker! Excelsior is one of 3-4 poker rooms on the island and I was eager to check out the action... Poker - There are no tournaments here.. cash games only - They have a weird promotion where you can buy into a 2/4 cash... More
