Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, a Wyndham Grand property, has reopened its 7,000-square-foot casino after a $5 million expansion and remodeling. Some 180 slot machines, 12 gaming tables and a bar with five 50-inch plasma TV screens were added in the project, as well as new carpeting, chairs and tables. The new slot machines are the only ones in Puerto Rico to offer ticket-in/ticket-out technology. Guests can play blackjack, roulette, three-card poker, Caribbean stud and Texas Hold'em poker at the casino and use the Rio Mar's Club Bahia card, which promotes repeat play and allows players to accrue points that can be redeemed throughout the resort in the spa, restaurants and accommodations.
In addition to the casino, the resort features 48,000 square feet of meeting space; two 18-hole golf courses designed by Tom and George Fazio and Greg Norman; a 7,000-square-foot spa and fitness center; 11 restaurants, lounges and entertainment venues; an international tennis center; watersports; and two beachfront pools.
