We recently visited the Pala Casino Resort and Spa on southern California. It is located near San Diego just off of I5 and quite easy to get to as long as your prepared for the windy and curvy roads that lead to it. The casino has over 2000 slot machines along with a variety of the standard tables for your enjoyment. There is a nice hotel for patrons to spend the night, a great pool to spend time at as shown in the picture and of course the spa. Patrons should book the spa and arrive 30 minutes in advance to prepare for the treatment etc. Full instructions and costs can be found on the casinos web site for the Pala Casino Resort and Spa.
We dined in one of the restaurants in the casino. The food was excellent, the service very good and the size of the portions were large. There is also an outside eating area, however it was under construction at the time we were there. You have a nice view of the mountains and the surrounding property. There are also several fast-food restaurants, a deli and of course more high end areas to enjoy fine dining.
The casino is large with over 2000 slot machines of all types from penny machines to high roller machines. They also have video poker and keno machines of various denominations. The casino has high ceilings with good air circulation. The smoke from people smoking is not much of a problem. Although there is a noticeable smell when you enter the casino. Maybe one day Indian casinos will not allow smoking in the casino, however, we do not see this happening anytime soon. At least they have good air circulation at this one. This particular casino also has soft drink machines available throughout the casino for those that need a drink from time to time. There is no charge for these beverages. Beer and wine are served at the bar as well as at the machines, although they are very expensive compared to some other locations.
