Love the service, friendly staff and great food! The dealers are so friendly that you enjoy your game. The best part is that it is smoke free! At least you can breathe clean air!

Nice poker action, especially tournaments - each Sunday night and also a big tournament every 6 months. But the poker room is small cramped and filled with smoke. They should move the poker room out of that tiny room and make the bar in the tiny oom, which is where you want the smoking area anyway

The casino has a very nice view of the sea - and strangely one of the very few casinos I have seen with a window and viewing deck. They offer plenty of games and also give free hotel pickups!

I have been to this Casino a few times and the staff who work there dont seem to be very courteous, we have always had problems in terms of service for drink orders and sometimes even though you order they never serve you, so it best to keep away. There is another Casino just around the corner known as Casinomax,... More
