We waited here till all the stores in the mall were opened. Staff was friendly but they don't accept US which is a little inconvenient for tourist. An okay amount of machines. No one were serving drinks we had to buy at the bar.

The Royal Yak is located at the Plaza Las Americas shopping center. If you are coming from the hotel zone take the number 27 bus. This bus only runs about once every 30 minutes. We entered the casino on the ground floor. Initially we thought...More
