Casino at Hyatt Regency Aruba#3 in Best Things To Do in Aruba
Price & Hours
The Hyatt Regency Casino has 13 gaming tables, 221 slot machines and 19 video poker machines. In other words, gamblers beware; this casino has plenty of opportunities for you to win – or lose – some money. The gaming floor is part of the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino along Palm Beach, but the slots and tables are open for outside patrons (18 years or older) to use as well.
Those who've stopped by the casino to take their chances with Lady Luck find that its ventilation system helps to reduce cigarette smoke, making for plenty of fresh air between sips of tasty cocktails. Many gamers note that the casino's small size is similar to others on Aruba but when compared to casinos in gambling havens like Las Vegas it's tiny. That said, they say the casino is still fun to visit and enjoy an hour or two out of the heat.
Regular casino hours are 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. daily, but prime time to visit is Tuesday through Sunday evenings when the betting house hosts "Carnival in Rio" nights featuring live music and dancing. You can watch the live entertainment for free, but it will cost you to partake in table games or use slot machines.

#1 Eagle Beach
Known as "Low-Rise area" for its low-to-the-ground hotels and timeshares, northwestern Eagle Beach is one of the island's top shores by default – you're probably staying nearby. Convenience aside, Eagle Beach truly is one of the best places to spend a day in Aruba.
Recent visitors called the beach magnificent with gorgeous white sand and the bluest water. They do warn of high winds, however, so plan to wear a hat to protect from any flying sand.
