Smaller and quieter. I did find a good slot that paid consistently, and did ok with roulette as well.

for being a Holiday Inn,this place is dirty and smells moldy every single year we go here! Whoever manages this place needs replaced. Slots do not work properly and never have for the past eight years! The five dollar machine is broke every year! The dollar machines will not accept vouchers and they are using magic markers to fill in... More

They also have a small poker room that runs nightly limit hold-em specials but you have to show up at least 30 minutes prior to the start time and then don't always... More

This is with out a doubt the worst casino on the island !! Some machines wont take twenty dollar bills, some machines wont take vouchers from the machine you just finished playing. If you like to gamble the Seaport & Crystal are located downtown & the their slots seem to be more gambler friendly.

We had a couple of fantastic dealers when we played blackjack. On the flip side, some of the dealers here are flat out jerks. The craps crew we had was more interested in their conversation than paying attention to the game. There are a couple of great dealers, but over all I found the staff here to be disinterested and...

The casino is not the cleanest, and restrooms really dirty, heavy stale smell of smoke and ??, machines dated, worn, many can't even read information on buttons so worn, good afternoon bingo if so inclined,

Older machines, no bells and whistles. Dead crowd. Smoky, small rooms. Other casinos in Aruba better equipped and more friendly. Felt uncomfortable with staff. Stay away. You have better options in walking distance.

This place needs to update their machines! Its so old in there I don't think one machine has changed in over 10 years! We didn't even stay to play more than 10 minutes. Hyatt casino is far better!

The Holiday Inn casino needs work. It is old and smelly and needs a majof facelift. We have been going there for over 26 years and it gets worse every year. This year there were even problems with their honesty. The card game Caribbean Stud Poker was invented at this casino many ears ago. Whiile we were trying to play... More

for starters, there were dirty plastic cups all over the place and trash on all the tables. They seemed to have bussed in vagrants, thank goodness the casino has its own entrance.
