If the spa sizzles so grandly, you can bet the casino is just as mega-fun. The largest gaming empire on the island, this 48,000-foot wonder is a spirited sensation of excess. You’ll find casino games, sure – 40 gaming tables, 450 slot machines, high-limit poker games in the Salon Prive — but at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, the casino is an integrated experience. Smack in the center, you will soon be able to dine on fine foods prepared by chef Kerry Simon, a celebrity cuisinier recognized as the “Rock ’n Roll Chef” by Rolling Stone. When the mood strikes, take a break from baccarat for a spin on the dance floor at Oro Nightclub, a VIP hot spot with electrifying entertainment. You can always return to Sports Book and weekly promotions like Random Hot Seat. This casino invites you at all hours.
