After checking the Casino's website about dress regulations, we made a little bit of an effort dressing. We needn't have bothered. We were there on a Saturday night, and it was full of people wearing thongs, t-shirts and shorts. Some people looked as though they had come straight from work sites and were extremely grubby. Don't go expecting anything fantastic... More

If you are going out with your friends and tend to seek for a bit of fun, the Reef Casino is a good formal-like place to gather. You don't need to be addicted to gambling or even gamble at all, there are other event or things to do other than wasting your money for nothing. Just to remember that we... More

The casino is really small but I went there for the food. Had dinner at Flinders Bar and Grill and had a Grill of the Day ($12 lamb chops), a steak ($15) and two glasses of wine. The prices were reasonable and tasted not too bad.

Just played pokies to fill in some time in Cairns - lots to choose from, pretty generous. Good to have taxi right outside to get back to hotel. Staff friendly and attentive, impressed with service

We stayed in the casino hotel and always spent some time in this casino everyday throughout our stay, not a very big casino if u compare with casino in Sydney but is cosy and have almost all type of table game.The only downside is they have a closing time,3am in weekdays and 5am in weekend.

Sorry only visited the café , which was cheap and ordinary, and was put off by the smell as soon as you walked into the place. Tired décor. don't think the carpet has been replaced since smoking was banned inside. Definitely needs an urgent makeover... Could not go any further after initial impression. Maybe it is better further inside??

If you want to feel like you are a very special, important guest, then Pullman Reef Casino is the place for you. Service is wonderful, nothing is too hard for them. Rooms are clean , bright and tasteful. You don't have to be an international visitor to feel like you are their only guest. Locals are given brilliant deals and... More

I was invited to the Casino bar Vertigo,, by some freinds and very pleasantly surprised at the fun I had dancing to both the live band?.."mental as anything" and at the disco..and all for free...fantastic. I am no gambler so cannot comment on the actual casino though.

Small casino but enough slot machines to play on for a few hours, which we did. Got bored and we left. Okay to kill a few hours, if you have time to kill. We go to Las Vegas quite often so this place was a letdown.

I've been to many casino's and hotels and this was by far one of the finest. The room was clean and well maintained and always freshly made up. The maids must go around 5 times a day. The Flinders bar and grill is top quality and reasonably priced. The only criticism is that the VIP room is a bit over... More
