Complimentary casino drinks

I will be staying all inclsuive at the Tamarijn mid September. We intend to go off site for some entertainment and a local casino will certainly be high on our list.

Do the local casinos offer complimentary alcoholic drinks and snacks?

Thanks in anticipation.

Have never seen complimentary snacks, but all casinos have complimentary drinks....that's if you can get a waitress to help you! :)

All of the casinos have complimentary drinks.

Service is a bit slower during busy times.

Steve:

We visited the Alhambra Casino most nights. There were plenty of waiter/waitresses with non-alcoholic drinks on their trays. I asked for a rum & coke - they had to go to the bar specifically for it. I tipped him/her a dollar and the next time I looked for him/her - they had the drink ready for me on the tray. I tipped a dollar each time and I never had to wait after the first drink.

Snacks I didn't see, but I needed my hands free anyway! I had to keep handing out more and more money ☺

Absolutely agree on the tipping, and forgot to mention that. Once you tip, they will be around! :)

Thank you for the replies, the tipping tip is useful,particularly as it is not second nature in the UK to tip for everything.

In the UK you tend to get complimentarry snacks and non alcoholic drinks....but I like the way Aruba does things!!!!

As little as a dollar tip can easily increase your service level in the caribbean! I usually carry 100 ones on my trips to the carribean for just tipping!
