Barona resort was not only a beautiful and clean place, but the most friendly casino I've ever stayed at. Every single employee treated us like family! The atmosphere was pleasant. The food was good. The views were beautiful.

Everyone provides such excellent service. As soon as we drive on the property the guard gate is welcoming us with a smile and wave. It is really sincere today! We have been here a lot and they are very sincere. We use the valet and porter services. Jeff is so great and handles are luggage expertly. He provides us with...

This is a great casino! Stayed 2 nights and could have stayed more. Celebrated my birthday here and had so much fun. The spa was fantastic and they gave me the most delicious chocolates because it was my birthday. The Sage restaurant has great food and excellent prices. Would love to go again!

Very nice resort on beautiful grounds. Some major construction going on. Golf cart shuttle from the parking garage was a thoughtful touch. Decent Vegas style gaming. Great selection of dining options. Worth the drive from anywhere in San Diego County.

This was my first visit. Barona's Buffet is supposed to be the best in San Diego. I have to agree. It's also the most friendly place I've ever been. From the moment we turned into the resort everyone was fantastic. A cart was waiting to take us to the casino and another waiting to take us to the parking garage...

Absolutely beautiful resort. Casino advertises as the "happiest casino on earth" and staff live up to this tagline; always a smile and a wave. Slots are terrific and we found Thursday to be incredibly fun; great payouts and every half hour they giveaway $2k to a winning player.

I go to this Casino few times a year. I always enjoy my stay here. They have very nice rooms. Slots are comfortably spaced between them and they have adjustable seats. They have 24-hour open cafe and they have great food and prices. Most of all, I like money change people and they are available all over the casino.

We received a two night free stay at Barona. We hadn't been in a while, so we took them up on it. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I don't know what casino everyone is talking about when they mocked the 'loosest slots' slogan. We came home ahead. i personally saw 4 people win anywhere from 1514.00 to 15,000 dollars. we...

Barona has a nice hotel, great restaurants, and a truly awesome golf course. What more can you possibly need? Make sure you get your players' card because Barona has a good rewards program. I recommend the Sage Room for food. It has a nice view of the golf course and the food is good. Barona also has the best buffet...
