Paula Resort and Casino is family friendly. The pool and hot tub however, are Adults only after 7pm. This is a great opportunity for Adults to relax and have fun. They have fire pits also so after a good soak you can sit by the fire and enjoy. Pala is the place I go to rejuvenate. You will love it... More

A business conference brought us to the the hotel for the first time. Well worth the drive from Orange County. Beautiful location and a warm and friendly staff to greet you. Altough attached to the casino, the hotel has a separate entrance so you do not have to walk through the smoke filled casino to check-in. Our room was very... More

the hotel is nicely laid out and a huge parkade for cars. staff are very accommodating and spa is great. the drawback is in the summer months the room rates are ridiculously priced especially on weekends. better to wait until fall or winter. Even with a comp room the hotel charges a $100.00 deposit as does the spa so beware

We stay here 2 nights, once a month for the last 3 years. The staff (many have been employed since they opened) really seems to care. They always are interested in making your stay the best! With Harrahs, Pechanga & Valley View (Yuck!) near by, there is no where we would rather stay then here. The restaurants are the best... More

Hotel is clean, staff is courteous, restaurants are delicious, ample and varied, spa is well appointed and reasonable. If you are an avid slot machine player, Pala is the place to be. The place has every slot game you'd want and more. While you may be in line to play a slot machine on a busy weekend, these machines seem... More

I took my wife to Pala Casino on one of their Celebration Packages. We had visited the casino before but had never stayed there. My wife loves Mama's Cucina, the Italian restaurant that's included in the package, so it was an easy choice to go there. The hotel is nice. We had a room overlooking the pool with the mountains...

We stayed a night to get away and enjoy our anniversary. We booked the suite overlooking the "mountains" and wound up with a whirlpool looking into the parking lot. We could see all the cars, valet, guest, etc. Very disappointed with the room considering what we paid for it. It was clean but for that price, I don't expect to... More
