Enjoyable evening entertainment, Did not win this time but didn't loose much either. A little smokey but most casinos are. The staff is helpful. Next time I will try blackjack.

One of our favorite Gambling Spots. Smaller and not as fancy but we usually find a little LUCK here.

My advice ...don't play here .... i just tell you why ...
When i visit Aruba i play in a casino about twice a week with a nice stack.
I visit more casino's on the island but Alhambra was the first i came so it is a special place for me.
But since a year the staff in the casino chanced. And then i am talking about the pitstaff. Almost all. More and more times people are complaining about them. They manage to give peole a bad evening although they play serious money at blackjack or roulette tables.
They are talking with eachtother about guests.They dont greet or dont say goodbye when you leave. Even not if you say that to them. There is not any interaction (most times) between pitcrew and guests.
But when you start winning it is even worse. When i start winning on 1 evening the staff start to be cantankerous. They start to change balls on the roulette tables. Spinning the wheel so hard nobody could see the numbers. They throw a fast ball in and in 5 to 6 sec it was in a number. People who bet alot of money didnt even get the time to place there bets. People start to be angry and in 5 minutes a full table of players left. They complained at the pitboss. He said nothing,did nothing. Just look the other way. Last week i tried again after a few months. It was the same allover.Nothing changed. And i leave with > 1k profit the next time i go again to the new ritz carlton. That casino sure now how to treat guest who want to spend some money and also have a good time.
Oh yeah ... the people who serve the drinks on Alhambra are great. They now how to be nice to guest. I wish they run the tables.

They fixed the casino and it is very nice with a lot more space
You can walk from the divi divi
Not a las Vegas casino but for the island I would say the second best on the island behind the Marriott
