  • Went for a morning walk along Mindil Beach. Nice walk between Myilly Point and Ski Club. Great views.  more »
  • Overall pretty impressive resort style casino for the city it serves. The infinite pool is really nice and has an amazing view of the ocean. There is a good variety of table games, and the food from the buffet is actually really good quality (they had all you can eat oysters when I went). Will be going back.
  • Sorry , wet season, no one there but very nice location
