Nice little place, rooms are clean, housekeeping is great, coffee bar and cafe employees very nice, ENTIRE CREW very helpful and cheery. Very nice, and maintained pool area; wristbands for pool area access, towel checkout; but $25 for unreturned towel? Was not an issue, but be aware. Large Samsung HDTV in room, did not turn on, but very new model.... More

Stop here as a respite from touring sites in and around Tucson. Staff was friendly, but machines did not pay well. Lots of smokers and not very good air scrubbers to remove the smoke from the main floor area. If you are prone to respiratory issues this might not be a good place to frequent. I found this to be...

This Casino is fine if you don't mind losing your money. The buffet leaves much to be desired, just not worth the trip for fun. The payoffs are so bad they are not worth playing. I was very disappointed in this Casino. I am a regular player and I have given this place up even though I live nearby.

Stayed here for a conference, never again! Facility is unsafe, dark, with no security patrolling and tons of questionable people. Room: The dirties I've seen, smelly, filled with dust dirty sheets and uncleaned refrigerator, or desk. I was on the 3rd floor, unsafe, filled with intoxicated and low scummy people. Find a better place please. Food, dont even bother, head... More

The casino is more or less split into 3 areas and then adjacent to it is the hotel. I don't know if it was due to visiting in the middle of the week or maybe I was more leery than usual. But I didnt feel as comfortable as say, Casino del Sol. Some of the fellow patrons seemed a little... More

My husband and I were there last week, as we had not been there in more than 3 years. We used to visit quite often and always had fun...we usually won enough to be able to go again. This trip was terrible. We tried many different machines.....Penny, 5 cent, quarter, & $1. We never got one win. In addition to... More

We attended the Kansas concert at the Diamond Center, which is the music venue at the Desert Diamond Casino just south of Tucson. The seating and the sound system were both terrible. Instead of movie theater style seating, all the seats in each section were at the same level, so we couldn't see the stage above the heads of those... More

We came here to try my hand at the slots and for a first timer, I won around 20 bucks. For me, that was lucky already. And we hit the buffet and it was a pretty casual set-up. I liked some dishes and others are just plain alright.

We recently went to see ABBA the Concert tribute at Desert Diamond Sahuarita location and it was AWESOME! We were a bit worried after our experience with Purple Rain Prince Tribute 2 years ago (I sense a theme in our behavior.....) when the sound system was awful. No such problems this time! The performers were dead ringers for the original... More
