    Guests only? I am guessing its a real small room if they are not opening it up to the public.

    Funny. Most of the casinos I hang out in (minus the Hyatt and Ritz) are partially filled with locals gambling, or people coming from the timeshares. They seem to be missing a big part of the gambling market by only allowing guests to gamble. My guess is they will be out of business before they get a chance to figure out its a bad business model, lol. I have/had the opportunity to take over one of the poker rooms but the cost is scaring me away....although doing business against knuckle heads like this would not be difficult, lol. I am guessing those are the rules in which they have to operate, many casinos are leased out and not owned by the hotel itself. Barcelo (occidental) always seemed to have people on duty to make sure no non-guests could venture onto the property so that makes opening the hotel to the public hard. That said, the Riu Antillas is an AI and their casino is open to the public....

    I have checked their website and their Facebook page and I can't find any reference to the casino on either page. I guess they are not emphasizing it in any way.
