Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Apparently sport dressing to enter at 18h59 is fine but after 19h00 is not. I call BS! What’s the difference? Also one day is fine but the next is not with the same exact clothes. So it depends on the security garde’s mood. Total discrimination!

Signed up for the poker cash game.. It was good fun.

No drink holder at poker table though. That an onion in the ointment.

Free to enter.. They are not to strict about dress code.. I got in with shorts and slippers..

I enjoyed myself.. Would recommend

The buffet lunch at the Casino cannot be beaten, for 16.50 Euros you can have the buffet starter and dessert and eat as much as you want with the excellent champagne and wines on the menu. This is not to be missed but is always packed and you must book in advance particularly if you wish to sit on the balcony. The service from the staff is of a very high standard. Try it.

Lovely restaurant inside the casino. Good varied menu . We chose the duo menu either starter and main or main and dessert. Their starter buffet is superb. Very charming staff.

Visiting Royan for the day and wanted to spend some time (and money!) in the casino. Checked the website beforehand so knew we needed ID for entry (states Passports/ID). However, the unsmiling chap in a suit at the reception area checked our driving licences, looked disdainfully at them, showed a colleague and said no entry as Passports were required. Well how does that work - surely photo ID is ID? - the website doesn't say French visitors are welcome with whatever and British spenders aren't - very disappointing as we were ready to have an afternoon of gaming. We passed 21 well over 30yrs ago and definately didn't drink from the fountain of youth before entering. We've visited Las Vegas casinos many times and never been ID checked - trust me, Royan is definitely not LV.

The moral of the story for Brits is - don't forget your passport otherwise "On Ne Passe Pas"!!

Hello nnmercman and thanks a lot for comparing Royan with Las Vegas ! French law imposes us to check the identity of whoever wants to spend time (and money) in a casino. The only way to proove who you are as a foreigner is to show your passport (english driving licence is not worth). We hope your unpleasant experience helps other person in the future.

It's a French casino Not American. It's some old fashioned slot machines with free drinks - no not those. A cheap restaurant too. It is on the Sea front and has a great view of the sea. If I were you skip the casino and go to the beach.

We came here as a change, and neither of us have been to a casino before. Upon arrival we were asked for I.D. So if you are planning on coming here, don't forget your passport.

There is no dress code here, but to be honest it really isn't a top ended kind of casino.

We spent a few hours here, which included having a drink on the bar's terrace, which has beautiful views of the beach.

The machine's can be a little confusing to understand, and I did end up losing 20 euros on one machine, because it was badly explained. After that I stuck to the 1 centime machines.

Not a bad place to visit to waste some time, just be warned it is full of elderly people who sit on the same machines all day!

Hello claireetguillaume87, thank you for visiting us. It is right you need to show your ID or passeport to get in, we need to check you are not someone "not allowed to play in a casino". Strange isn't it ? However, anybody can come in and play, and people are younger at night... you will see next time !

Blackjack is my game of choice and my return visit to the casino didn't disappoint! Don't hang about the slots... go straight to the salle de jeux.
