Just had a meal

We were told that Thursdays this Casino was happening. I guess we arrived a bit early (4:30pm). We walked around the small Casino & headed to the bar. Basic bar food. Paid $23 for... read more

I enjoyed myself. I am not a big gambler but I do enjoy playing the slots. I played with $10 American for over an hour. I won, I lost but over all I had fun. After a while they brought out free non alcoholic drinks and chicken wings. Nice way to spend time while waiting for a plane.

this place is a joke! No table games, only roulette and slots. If you get off playing for 1colon I guess you may have fun here. There so many cool places in the area, why anybody would waste their time here is a mystery. Beers are expensive, unlike casinos in the USA

In my opinion the best spot for watching Sunday football games is the Pirate’s Bar at the Fiesta Casino in Alajuela, just across the highway from the Juan Santamaría airport. I have been going there for years and really enjoy it. They have at least 10 screens where you can catch your favorite NFL team. One giant screen in the... More

Mostly slots and a couple, bad odd, rummy games. The worst service in the restaurant where our waitress intentionally ignored us. Almost desperate to rip you off. The only people in the country that were not nice, helpful or friendly.

This Casino sucks. No money to win. Disrespectful personnel. Very rude and ignorant. It is a joke. Close down, seriously. Don't waste your time/money

Everybody knows you only come to Costa Rica for the Casino action. This is a cool little place to check out. Loaded with slots, all at local currency rates. That means you can play 20 bucks for an hour or two. I guess it's part of the Tico urban experience. It's snuggled under the shoulder of El Presidente Hotel, across... More

We all had proper ID but they refused entry becuase they thought that my passport was fake. When we asked to see a manager instead the security guard did nothing and eventually we were forced to leave.

First I have to start by saying it was my first time in a casino of that scale so I won't or can't be to judgemental. The one we we visited was at the Ramada Plaza in San Jose. Luckily the night there it wasn't as crowded as I've normally seen it so it was perfect to be able to... More
