Casino's are meant to conjure up an air of glamour and excitement. This casino failed to deliver in almost every respect. The only clientele were badly dressed pensioners feeding tokens into slot machines. The atmosphere felt very sad and depressing.

The room for table games was slightly more glamorous, but only two tables had any action, and again there was no atmosphere.

The building itself is quite grand, but the tacky flashing lights of the slot machines detract from the faded grandeur of the past. The trompe d'oiel window effect up high was bizarre, like a three year old had been finger painting.

We were staying in a nearby hotel, which gave us complimentary vouchers for a free cocktail at the casino. The cocktail menu had just 4 drinks, and both the ones we chose were small and didn't feel that there was any alcohol inside.

We drank our drinks quickly and left. An experience to forget.

We are sorry that the melange of the modern and the old decoration did not please you. We have nevertheless a signed decoration jacques Garcia. I think that the O2 sofa bar our lounge bar you will have better suited, because we have a wide choice of innovative cocktails.
I hope to see again you for one second experience casino.

Nothing much to it. It's not like the typical "James Bond" Casinos from the movies. The only words to sum it up is : It's Nice! The walk to and from the casino was good. Alot of interesting shops and people. We played the Slots for an hour came out ahead and we left. Would I go back? Maybe

Forms a nice part of the Deauville experience and gives one the feeling of being a high roller (if only for 5 minutes!) and you might just win enough to pay for a good meal at one of the town's restaurants.

Full of slot machines which i expect make money for the Casino but it used to be much more classy when they had fewer machines & a beautiful table with flower arrangement at the top of the stairs
