Not as good as the Casino at Portamasso

It is ok and convenient to the Westin but frankly not a patch on the other nearby Casino. Staff are not particularly helpful or friendly and the slots seem old.

Not very glamourous and very few tables were being used. Had to walk all the way around the building to get in after visiting the balcony.

This was a nice, albeit small, casino. It was a quick cab ride from our hotel (Hilton). When we registered (bring your passport), we asked about cabs returning and were told there was a free shuttle, which we used to return. We had dinner at The Brasserie (?) in the casino.
