Review written by Sophie Couard, on March 4, 2016.
The Club Hotel Casino Loutraki is probably the largest casino in Greece and one of the largest in Europe. It is a very impressive place. The resort has been built by the sea and even has a private beach, and when you see it for the first time you will be amazed at the majestic setting and charm of the resort, which was designed by renowned architect Alexandro Compazi.
The resort overlooks the largest and most beautiful beach of the famous coastal spa town, which has been well-known for its mineral springs since ancient times. It offers a beautiful atmosphere and has become an excellent starting point to visit the Peloponnesian islands.
So, it is definitely a great place for tourists, but will it also live up to its prestigious reputation and the standards of gambling fans? This is the question that I will try to answer in the rest of this review about the resort.
A nice casino
The Club Hotel Casino Loutraki spans over an area of over 3,000 m² on three floors, and invites you to enjoy a very diverse game selection. The casino is very modern and elegantly designed, and you can access the casino upon presentation of a valid ID. It is open to adults aged 21 or older. The casino also has two separate VIP areas for high rollers, and the games there have very high stakes and a flawless service that will surely make everyone happy.
The slot machines
There are more than 700 slot machines from 1 cent to €10 available 24 hours 7 days a week. Among them are:
- mechanical slot machines offering you a true vintage feeling,
- latest generation video slot machines,
- multi-game devices,
- different variants of video poker,
- video bingo,
- games where you can win a progressive jackpot,
- electronic roulette games for up to 35 people.
The table games
Everyone who loves traditional table games will be happy to hear that there are more than 80 tables available, offering:
- stud poker,
- mini punto banco.
These games are available from Monday to Thursday from 1 pm to 7 am, and Friday to Sunday 24 hours a day.
The establishment was the first casino in Greece to offer a poker room. The room has a contemporary design, and it is possible to play Texas Hold'em and Omaha high pot limit games in tournaments or cash games.
The Club Hotel Casino Loutraki organises one or more lottery draws every day. If you want to participate, all you need to do is to pick up a ticket at the reception. The ticket is valid for all draws of the month, and you can win up to €20,000!
Everything available for a great stay
Although it is very far away from Las Vegas, you might get the feeling a little bit when you are there. In fact, the resort does not only offer a casino to their visitors, there are also many other things to do apart from gambling, just like in the famous establishments on the Las Vegas Strip. That is surely a good thing, isn't it?
A fantastic 5-star hotel
The hotel is surely one of the most luxurious places in the region. Everything is equipped with stunning modern furniture, including some pieces from the designer Philippe Stark.
The resort by the sea offers 275 rooms, including 20 suites. You can find:
- the executive moutain room,
- the deluxe room,
- the junior room,
- the golden suite,
- the royale suite,
- different types of themed suites (Venice, Paris, Provence, Modern and Black & White),
- two types of imperial suites (Exotic and Mediterranean).
The rooms are spacious, quiet and perfectly decorated with one or more king size beds with excellent bedding. There is also a lot of equipment in the bathroom, for example a whirlpool tub and a separate shower. There is even a TV screen in the mirror above the bathtub. Another positive point is that the air conditioning is very good and quiet!
Four restaurants and two bars
In the games room you can find:
- a bar that serves coffee and free soft drinks, and it also has a nice alcoholic drinks menu,
- an international self service buffet (Neptune Restaurant) which is open every day during the week from 8 pm to 1.30 am, and on the weekend from 1 pm to 5 pm.
Outside of the casino are also:
- a fish and sea food restaurant (Oceanos Restaurant),
- a Japanese restaurant (Sushi Bar),
- an international self service buffet (Deep Blue Restaurant),
- a lounge (Admiral Bar).
Some leisure facilities
The complex also offers some entertainment:
- beautiful gardens,
- a theatre,
- a modern playground for children from 4 to 12 years,
- a fantastic outdoor swimming pool with a beautiful view of the sea,
- a nice indoors swimming pool,
- a spa with many facilities (massage salon, hamman, sauna, etc),
- a fitness centre,
- a shopping centre.
There are also 5 interconnected rooms available for conferences of up to 900 persons.
The Club Hotel Casino Loutraki is located just an hour west of the airport of Athens towards Peloponnesus via the motorway E94. The luxurious establishment combines an excellent casino with a 5-star resort by the sea.
It is located in the outskirts of the famous spa town of Loutraki, near the famous Corinth Canal and near the archaeological sites of Corinth, Mycenae and Epidaurus. The location is perfect and offers a world of entertainment.
In short, it is an excellent establishment and I surely will return there to spend a week long holiday in a peaceful atmosphere, and enjoy sightseeing, relaxing, the swimming pool, massages and the casino of course! That sounds very nice, don't you think?
From Athens or the international airport of Eleftherios Venizelos, towards Attiki and Olympia odos and then take the exit towards Loutraki.
Slot machines : 24 hours, 7 days a week.
