I had a wonderful experience at this location. The atmosphere had a friendly island feel that made me feel right at home. However, I did find that the attendants for the slot machines were a bit too pushy when monitoring your winnings. It seemed like they adjusted the machines to ensure that you would end up losing. Despite this, I still had a great overall experience.

We were thrilled with the place, especially given the price we paid. It was a pleasant surprise. The only downside was that the pool was still closed, but we understood given the current circumstances. Overall, we were very happy with our experience.

I asked the front desk about the pool’s location only to find out it was closed due to a leak until 6/22/23. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this excuse. The saimin noodles at the Market Cafe were undercooked, and my brother-in-law had the same experience. The shower ceiling was peeling, and the AC wasn’t functioning properly. If the Cal wants to attract local visitors, they need to step up their game instead of relying on our loyalty. It’s quite disappointing, to say the least.
