“We enjoyed it but didn't get to play poker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Had a nice meal, staff and people sat near us were friendly. There was live music and a good atmosphere. Just a shame we couldn't get on to a poker table.

“Smoky!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We visited the casino to watch an international poker competition, or should we call it a smoker competition! We stood the poisonous atmosphere about half an hour before escaping to breath!

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

I have visited many casinos around the world but this place is i don't know what but not a casino.

There is no ambiance and there are more visitors than players. the management really does not care about the clients and the quality is so disappointing.

The drinks are so expensive and the ambiance does not keep you in the place and try to play.

change the place and finish your night in the various places in Marrakech.

“A big disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Well I've been lucky enough to have visited many casinos around the world and I'm amazed that this can even be called a casino!

They were setting up for a poker tournament which may have been partly to do with it but we couldn't get into the poker / blackgammon area and I've seen more slots (which I'm not particularly interested in) in a pub!

The whole place felt rough and we didn't stay to see how much they were going to try to rip us off for when it came to drinks!

The bottom line is, keep your money for the souks and don't waste your time going there - fortunately for us it was close to our hotel so we didn't waste anything
