Pala Casino Spa Resort – Review
Pala Casino Spa Resort is a four diamond luxury casino located at the foot of the Palomar Mountain,
between Temecula & Escondido, California conveniently right off of the 15 freeway. With Vegas style gaming,
featuring over 2,000 slots, & 87 table games. You can’t find a better place for the 21+ crowd looking for a
One thing I enjoyed while visiting Pala was the variety of slots available. They had 1 cent, 2 cent, nickel,
dime, quarter, half-dollars, $1, $2, $5, $10, $25 and $100 games to play. They also had video poker where
I spent most of my time (& Money) I have to say I didn’t walk away with much profit but the gaming there was
impressive! The poker room had a table-side dining service, I thought this feature was pretty unique. Also
the poker room was non-smoking which was nice. They have two video poker bars with free entertainment
on the stage. The bar can actually get pretty crowded sometimes you do have to wait for a seat to open up
but, it is worth it some of the bands are really good.
The room we had was beautiful, the view was amazing. The price was actually pretty good for the resort
being four diamond. The staff was polite & friendly at check-in & while we were lounging at the pool. I have
heard some complaints about service but in my experience it was great. The cabanas in the pool area were
really nice and included a TV and a fan to keep the temperature comfortable. They also had a childcare
service available. Over-all the grounds were nicely kept and staff always greeted us with a smile, the dealers
at the table games were mostly friendly and willing to help the beginners.
Dining at Pala was nice because there was so much to choose from. They have a buffet called choices, ( I
would probably skip on the buffet ) Mama’s Cucina Italiana, The Oak Room, Noodles, Amigos, Sushi Sake
(my personal favorite) Pala Cafe, Promenade Deli, The Poolside Cafe & Bar and Coffee Amore.
The surrounding area was so open & beautiful. The beach was just minutes away just down a nice scenic
drive through Bonsall California, on the way you can stop at the historical Mission San Luis Rey de Francia?.
They also have tours of the wineries which aren’t too far away either. Pala offers several different wedding
packages, Spa Packages and Golf Packages all at reasonable prices.
The shows and concerts I think, are some of the best entertainment in San Diego. They offer boxing &
headliner concerts at the Pala Events Center and Pala?s outdoor Palomar Starlight Theater. The Grand
Cabaret offers a lounge to seat 525 and can change into a 1,000 seat stadium like theatre.
While walking around the resort grounds I noticed all kinds of different people come to stay at Pala. Majority
of the customers came in large groups some families & people there for a work convention. Those traveling
alone or in couples seemed to be all age ranges it was a nice mixture of people.
