After visiting other local casinos I visited Dubai Palace since it was very recommended by hotel. The casino gave a Vegas like experience and there was a wide variety of live games and machines!

At first the vetting in the slot machines were quite confusing.. credits-pesos-dollars. But after the 2nd visit we figured out that a $.05 line bet was 1 peso and 5 credits = 1 peso. Ex. 500 pesos gives you 503 credits which is equivalent to...More

I am not familiar with Occidental. If you call your hotel and ask for an english speaking person (if you need that), the concierge can tell the rough distance and how much a taxi will cost (roughly).

I honestly don’t remember. I was playing blackjack the whole night. I know they have poker and a lot of slot machines. Keep in mind, it’s a cash only facility and they only accept pesos. They don’t accept USD.

Dubai Palace CASINO in El Centro as of 1/22/15 (17 Replies)
The Dubai Palace Casino is located at the southern end of Av Tulum in Cancun's Centro. It is NOT associated with the Palace Resorts in any way.

Sorry but I didn't check the roulette price. We haven't been to any other of the Casinos so don't know if they too have real table games. It doesn't look like the...More

I know nothing about casinos but went to the Royal Yak at Plaza Americas with a friend on Tuesday. She pointed out to me that the blackjack there was now in operation. First I knew that it was allowed here.

It is a casino. But not much of a Palace, in my opinion.
