“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

“Thieves - escroquerie”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2011

This place has two price lists with very different prices! my wine was 110 on one and 150 on the other, what a difference. When I got the bill, they told me it didn't matter and expected me to pay the higher price (210 total). Then they let me just wait indefinitely. So I again objected and they asked for, get this, 180. I gave the correct amount 170 and walked off to a lot of insults. Tried to talk to the manager who was obviously not interested, so probably well aware of the practice! if that's how the bar is run, don't expect a fair bet in the casino! Avoid!
