The Ocean Casino is situated at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel & Casino Aguadilla which is in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. Marriott is one of the world’s leading names in the hospitality industry and their name is immediately associated with quality service. They own many hotels and even a few casinos worldwide, with a few other Marriott options available within Puerto Rico.
The Courtyard by Marriott Hotel & Casino is located on Belt Road in Aguadilla. The nearest airport, Rafael Hernandez Airport, is a mere 12-minute drive away from the casino. This airport is rather small, so might not provide you with a direct flight. Alternatively, you could use Luis Munoz Marin International Airport which is located in the capital of San Juan. Luis Munoz Marin International is a 1 hour and 40 minute drive away.
Public transportation to and from the airport is rather limited, so you can either rent a car at the airport or use a taxi service. If you decide to rent a car, there is a fee for parking at the hotel and casino, which will set you back $8 per day.
Located just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel are the pristine beaches of the Caribbean Sea. There are many aquatic activities available here. Other than the sea, there is a nearby golf course, the Las Cascadas Water Park (suitable for the whole family), an ice-skating rink, and a number of parks to enjoy a leisurely stroll.
Ocean Casino has a semi-formal dress code, and guests are encouraged to look presentable at all times. The legal gambling age is 18 in Puerto Rico and you can be expected to provide identification. Puerto Rico is an American territory and, therefore, the U.S. Dollar is the primary currency used on the island.
The casino is one of the biggest on the island at a staggering 10,000 square feet. The lights, sounds, and décor, all resemble a modern casino and guests will almost forget that they are in Puerto Rico in this state-of-the-art casino. If you plan on going to the casino often, consider a casino membership which provides you with numerous benefits, including reward points that can be used at the various amenities on offer by Marriot Aguadilla.
High rollers might be disappointed to know that they the casino doesn’t focus on high limits and most tables feature minimum and maximum bets in-line with the norm. Some of their tables do, however, have quite high maximum bets – so the opportunity for big payouts is still there.
The casino is open all day, every day of the week with complimentary drinks and snacks available. Pus, there is live music on offer which allows guests to relax in-between games and holiday activities.
