We enjoyed our stay at Mindil Beach Casino Resort but there were a few things that surprized us and not in a good way. When we arrived we thought we had booked into the Resort and discovered that we had a hotel room which was very outdated and needed renovating. The air conditioner could not be altered and one minute it was hot in the room and the next it was cold during the night and we were told it was just blowing the outside air into the room there was no air conditioning. The shower was inside in the bath which was not ideal. We did have a nice view of the ocean and the pool from our balcony. We were surprized that we had no one clean our room or change our towels or sheets for 3 DAYS it was not until the day before we were leaving that housekeeping came to our room. Luckily we had brought our own milk, bottled water and shower gel. We did not think this was acceptable when you were paying over $300 each night for your room. The Infinity pool had very few pool lounges and each time we walked past they were all occupied. The Lagoon pool was much warmer and much nicer with more pool lounges but the swim up bar only had 6 stools and they filled up very quickly especially towards the end of the week. Breakfast was not included in our room which was a shock and we were even more shocked to discover that if we wanted breakfast it would be $28 each so we were glad we brought our own bowls, spoons and cereal. Restaurants at the Casino are very over priced so look local for food.

We stayed in a 1br suite with ocean view. It was spacious and clean. The lagoon pool that is surrounded by lagoon rooms (quite expensive) It was beautiful and large with swim up bar. The resort itself is very nice.

The room needs a makeover badly and our bed hadn’t been changed for years was lumpy from where people had formed into it. Bathroom looked very tired. Good was delicious but expensive.
