3 casinos you should visit in Marbella25-08-2020
The Costa del Sol town of Marbella and the surrounding region are excellent choices for all types of tourists. Costa del Sol is particularly appealing if you are looking to spend a nice and relaxing vacation under the famed Spanish sun.
If you are on a family holiday, you can visit some of the many family-friendly beaches, as well as Marbella’s wildlife and theme parks. You can also stroll through the charming old town and admire its beautiful Moorish-style buildings and the ruins of the ninth-century Arab fortress.
However, if you are someone who is after a sunny holiday but also looking for some clubbing at night, you might be slightly disappointed by what the town has to offer.
Marbella is more of a family destination and if your nighttime activities revolve around the dinner table, you will be more than happy with the experience. However, if you are looking for a vibrant nightlife, you will have to visit the neighbouring Puerto Banus or venture further away and drop by the Ocean Village Marina in Gibraltar.
The same is true if you want to gamble while vacationing in the Costa del Sol region. There is only one quality casino in Marbella, aptly named Casino Marbella. If you want to try out other gambling venues, you should visit neighbouring Gibraltar. It is only 70 or so kilometres away and it is basically in Marbella's back yard.
However, you should know that you don’t have to travel down to Gibraltar to play at different casinos. You can do the same from your Marbella hotel room, from the comfort of your sunbed, or while strolling through the old town.
But how can you do this? It's very simple. You can play at all the best online casinos in Spain at online-casinos.com. There you can find some excellent Spanish online casinos and can choose the ones that are the best for you using the info the site provides. And you don’t even have to leave the beautiful town of Marbella.
However, if you still want to stretch your legs, and pay some of Marbella’s land-based casinos a visit, we have got you covered too. Here are the three best casinos in Marbella and the Costa del Sol region.
If you are in Marbella and you want to play at a top-quality casino, you should look no further than the Marbella Casino. Located in the center of town the casino is your only option if you don't want to venture outside Marbella.
The casino opened in July 1978 and is one of the most reputable casinos in the Andalucía region. It has a wide variety of games including 29 table games and 101 gaming machines and the minimum bet is $0.02. The Marbella Casino offers both self-parking and valet service.
The most popular choices for tourists at the casino are the slot and jackpot machines. You don’t need to have previous knowledge to be successful at them and as such are loved by both casino enthusiasts and gambling beginners.
The table games at Casino Marbella are great if you want to get an authentic casino experience while at the same time relying on more than just luck to win. You can test your gambling knowledge at games such as poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and so on.
Winning at some of these such as baccarat and roulette are based solely on luck. However, games such as poker or blackjack require that you utilize some basic strategies too. Playing with the right gambling system at the Marbella Casino can pay for your Spanish holiday if all things fall in place.
Casino Sunborn is a gambling venue that people vacationing in Marbella often visit. However, you cannot visit the casino on foot as the casino is located in Ocean Village Marina and not in Marbella. It will take you about an hour to get to this super-luxurious establishment if you go there by car.
And while an hour's drive is not too long, the distance is not ideal if you are looking to make unplanned trips to a casino venue while strolling through Marbella. That’s why many Marbella-based tourist organizations are now asking authorities to consider doing something similar to what the hotel association in Benidorm is pushing for.
Benidorm has recently been experiencing a drop in visitor figures and tourist spending. As a result, its hotel association came up with an interesting solution to the problem. They are now planning to turn the city into something of a Spanish Vegas and attract wealthier tourists to improve those numbers.
Nevertheless, even if more casinos open in Marbella, that shouldn't stop you from visiting Casino Sunborn in Ocean Village Marina. This is because the casino is not a regular one, but is the world's first superyacht casino. It is aboard the Sunborn Gibraltar five star hotel/yacht and offers a truly unique gambling experience.
The casino has all the traditional table games you have come to expect from a top-notch venue. These include baccarat (they call it Punto Banco there), blackjack, American roulette, stud poker, and many other games. The table games at the casino are open from 6 pm until 4 am.
Gibraltar Casino (Casino Admiral Gibraltar)
The Gibraltar Casino is another gambling venue that is located on the Marina Front in Ocean Village. And it is not a coincidence that two of the three casinos on this list are located in Gibraltar.
The picturesque region has been the setting for many James Bond films such as The Living Daylights and You Only Live Twice. Bond knows a thing or two about gambling and only spends his time at the most luxurious casinos. So should you.
The Casino Admiral Gibraltar was previously called the Gala casino, but in 2013 it was bought by the game supplier Novomatic. It opened under the new name in May 2015 and is now one of the best casinos in the region.
The casino’s main focus is on the Novomatic gambling machines and there are 200 of these on the gaming floor. There are also table games in the Gibraltar Casino, but it is evident that Novomatic was going for a unique gaming machine experience before anything else.
As with any other top-notch venue, the Gibraltar Casino has more than just casino games. It also features a sports betting section, restaurants, bars, and lots of new and improved VIP areas.
