    Has anyone ever been to any of these? GF is getting a free trip there for work and I am looking for some table game action.

    I've only been there when the cruise ships docked. IIRC, they were basically small slot parlors with really lousy vp. I didn't stay and play.

    Ah, one or two looked to have some table games but good to know to not get my hopes up.

    I go once a year and frequent the casinos. I haven't been to Hollywood in Simpson Bay after the hurricane but they had table games and good BJ rules years ago. I was at Casino Royale last summer and they had table games but I didn't look closely at them. Both did free drinks and kept them coming every 5 minutes if you let them.

    Seriously jealous about a work trip there. I love that island! If you need any advice casino or otherwise let me know and I'll try to help.

    Oh neat - looks like hollywood and casino royale are the two main ones? Anything else you've done there while traveling that you really enjoyed that we might not think of?

    Get a car if you haven't already. There's so many beaches each with different vibes worth going to. If you go to Maho go to the Boatwood Bar instead of Sunset on the other side. Less obnoxious tourists and cheaper. Also delicious pizza. Zee Best is a solid bakery for a quick breakfast and has locations all around. Avoid the American places unless you want to get price gouged on food and drink. The Toppers Distillery tour is cool and you get to try flavors that may not be for sale. Ma Dou Dou rum is also very good and made on the island. Get Mosquito Milk from a pharmacy if you are prone to mosquito bites. I got lit up my first day for about 20 bites and it was not fun. If you have a bunch of time take the public ferry to Anguilla. We went in the summer and we had most beaches practically to ourselves they are unreal.

    I jumped all over the place there but those are just a few things that came to mind. I usually just spend my week there on the beaches getting extremely drunk with a water bottle full of rum from the liquor store.
