If you are picking a casino, this one is new.....clean... and very quite..... This place could end up adding more slots and tables than they have currently. They have the space to put more gaming action in there, but my guess is that they do not have enough action to justify that move. They are at the end of palm beach ( last hotel before the lighthouse) so people would have to go out of their way to visit this casino. There was not many people there any of the times we walked through, compared to the Marriott next door were there was music and a lot of action. The Marriott casino is fed by their three properties and being around longer. The wait staff was very attentive, probably because there looked to be more of them then gamblers. They give you a BIG sign up bonus to sign up for their casino card ... $5.00 ..... (Yes you read that right) They laughed when I said "Are you getting alot of people to sign up with this promotion?".......

The Casino was very clean, a bit small but very enjoyable btw we where losers no money won here, well worth the walk from the second floor of the hotel. Aruba was an excellent trip.

I agree with the other reviewers that everything looks very clean, brightly colored, and virtually smoke free. However, it was like a ghost town when my husband and I visited there recently on a Friday night. Plenty of penny machines, and very friendly guest relations staff and waitresses. I was given $5 comp to play with at the slots. The table games had no one playing there. Some people seemed to be winning, but I stayed about an hour and didn't win. Resort guests at the Marriott nearby will be happy to see the craps tables available here, as they were eliminated at the Stellaris Casino about two years ago. In fairness to the casino, there was a private party being held that evening, so many people probably didn't venture to the casino. I might go back to try it again when I return next year.

Nice casino and the tables are separated from the slots, where as most of the casinos have slot machines all around the tables

The casino itself was nice (and only a few months old). They infuse air fresheners into the casino and hotel. It's pleasing, and masks that sweaty, salty, smokey smell that usually accompanies beach casinos.

Much smaller than Vegas casinos, but lots of slots, a few blackjack tables ($5, $10 and up). Some Caribbean Stud poker, Texas Hold 'Em poker, craps, baccarat, etc.

I'm not partial to continuous shufflers, I think they give the house too much of an already impartial advantage over players. However, that is the only option in this casino. Still had a good time.

The casino is open all day, but the tables don't open until 6pm. This was kind of a bummer, but just had to play later after dinner, instead. Dealers were friendly and willing to offer advise. They switched dealers every 20 minutes or so. Another advantage for the house. If you're more than just a casual gambler, you'll probably be discouraged.

Happy winnings. :)
