Aruba's not known for its casinos, so don't expect a Vegas-style experience, but visitors who want to get in a bit of gambling do have a few options. Stellaris is the largest casino on the island (although it's on the small size by casino standards), with slot machines, gaming tables, and poker tables that fill up fast. The location is convenient, especially for guests staying at the Marriott. Smoking is allowed and the crowd is on the young side, making the atmosphere full of energy. If you're not familiar with some of the games, the dealers are helpful; you just may have to wait a while to get a spot at the table. The slot machines can feel a bit tight and the casino lacks a craps table, but the house has plenty of other ways to keep guests entertained, with live music, tons of penny machines, and beaches right outside.
