Not much here - the action's on the pool terrace outside.

An ok casino with slots and table games, but not very big, not that impressive and frankly the fun people watching is on the terrace outside - around the pool.

If you are looking for a really good meal then visit Cocal. The rooms are not up to date, but are roomy. This is a place mostly for single guys, not a family type of resort. The men servers are very well trained and most of them speak English. The bartenders are women and if you do not speak Spanish... More

Didn't see it coming. Casino was small and uninviting but once outdoors by the pool, it turns into quite a party. Great place for adults only at night if you don't mind the endless amount of working girls. We (my wife and I) didn't care so we had fun. If you are into that, the girls were surprisingly very attractive... More

So a friend of mine i shared a room with was robbed by a girl here. He brought it to the staff attention and they still allowed her to come back. We advised the staff and they stated since it didnt happen on cocal property they couldnt do anything about it.

This place should only be visited by people (males) that are only interested in picking up a prostitute. The women don't take no for an answer. If you tell one that you aren't interested then another will approach you. I felt uncomfortable with that many women that have daddy issues.

A fun hotel to visit. If you like to gamble and enjoy the air conditioning and pleasant staff but don't want to spend a lot of monies take $20. and have fun for a couple of hours and get out of the heat or humidity

We stumbled on this place looking for a casino. It was down a side road and boy were we in for a surprise. The casino is very small and not the highlight. It is all the local ladies. They are there for more than dancing. It is not a spot I would recommend for a family or group.

Don't be fooled by the (partly) beautiful girls. They are not trustworthy at all... Especially beware of thefts...

The hotel is a basic budget room, like what you would find in a motel 6! However, I think most are not concerned about the rooms... The is place is the local hang out for pros in the area. If that's what your looking for Coral is hot place. Casino..... I wouldn't call it a Casino at all more like... More

This was better than Morgan's Cove. However, it is small and old. There weren't many people. I guess because everyone was having a blast at the pool bar.
