Like an oasis on the horizon of endless sawgrass, this nine-story resort at the southeastern edge of the Everglades can't help but attract attention, even if you're not on the lookout for 24-hour gaming action. The casino occupies the lobby (making for a cigarette-smoky welcome at check-in) and features over 1,900 video machines, 58 poker tables, a 1,200-seat bingo hall, and a separate comparatively smoke-free gaming area. If you get beyond the lobby, you'll find most
rooms and suites have a view of Everglades' sawgrass and wildlife. Amenities include a minibar, coffeemaker, and television with pay-per-view movies and games. There's an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, spa, fitness center, indoor play area for youngsters, a game arcade for teens and tweens, plus Club Egret child care for kids 12 and under. When available, drivers can take you to the Miccosukee Indian Village, area malls, or a 27-hole golf club and tennis courts about 15 miles away.
