This urban playground is easy to get to — we pass by it along the highway all the time — and it offers a variety of dining options for either business lunches, romantic dinners, or a fun night out with friends sharing tapas.

My sister and I enjoyed a mini staycation at the Grand Villa in Burnaby a little while ago. We started off the evening with dinner followed by live entertainment (duelling pianos) and tried our luck at the slots before retiring to our lovely rooms at the Delta Hotel.

If you would like to experience the brand new Personas Tapas Restaurant and Lounge I have a prize pack to give away thanks to the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby that includes: A $50 free play card for the Grand Villa Casino and a 1-night stay at the Delta Hotel (which is attached to the casino).
