    Casino Recommendations

    Hi,
    My husband and I will be in Aruba on Oct 9-16. This will be our second time on the island. We are staying at the Surf Club. Last time we stayed at the Ocean Club. The only casino we went last time was the Stellaris. Which we liked a lot. What other casinos should we try? We like to play blackjack at the $5 tables. Thanks for any advice.

    stellaris is the largest casino on the island. most of the others on the palm beach high rise section is pretty small. your best bet is to stick with the stellaris in my opinion.

    If you like Stellaris, stick with it, or try right next door at the Ritz. I like the Ritz as it’s not as smoky but the Stellaris I felt had a better selection of slots. We tend to play close to where we stay so Alhambra is often our go to and I did very well there last trip.

    The casinos in Aruba are nothing great, just something to do. The only real casinos are in Vegas. Even the casinos in Monte Carlo can’t compare to the fun of a vegas casino

    Of course you’ll let the tax man know when you get back home.

    I never thought of that, Peg. But at this point, I would gladly pay the taxes just to win, lol...
