Very clean rooms, staff not friendly and the casino is evidently trying to recoup money from the COVID closing, because everyone was complaining that none of the games ever came close to hitting!! Maybe a good location to stay…but don’t waste your money gambling at this casino!

Room was very clean, a little disappointed in restaurants. Pool wait staff ignored you if you weren’t in a cabana (500.00 a day fee)
