This was a treat for my 70th Birthday. It met my expectations of a great time with my hubby. This started with the bubbly in the room. We went to the show at the Lyric and had dinner at the Ocean Basket.

The cost per night
Hi, on inquiring at the Gold Reef City Hotel, I was advised that Unless they know a specific date of the proposed booking, they cannot give a specific answer. The reason given for that is because they sometimes have specials running and again depending on the season, the prices may vary. The traveller can call them directly or go to their website.

"For families, the suites were amazing"
"If you want a good room, then insist upon one upon arrival and ask the concierge to give you their advice about the best."
"If you love casinos and entertainment good family place , do not forget access to Theme park free in your accommodation..."
"We stayed on the first floor and could hear the casino from the bathroom but not the bedroom."
