Review written by Sophie Couard, June 29, 2016.
Le Tréport is located on the border between Normandy and Picardy, between the cities of Dieppe and Cayeux-sur-Mer. It sits at the foot of the famous chalk cliffs of the Alabaster Coast. The city has a charming harbour and docks, and an old quarter with an authentic charm and many beautiful old buildings. You can also enjoy several monuments and other places of interest, such as the fish market, the Saint-Jacques church which is a historical monument, the Saint-Julien Chapel, the Musée Contemporain de la Poupée d'Artiste and a lighthouse. There is also a casino which is operated by the Joa group, and you can find out what the casino has to offer in the rest of this review.

A diverse leisure complex
The Joa Casino in Tréport is the perfect place for a good time with family or friends. The casino does not just offer gambling, it is also a leisure complex. In addition to the slot machines and table games there is a restaurant, a bar and even a cinema. However, there is no hotel available, so you will need to stay somewhere else if you are planning to stay in town overnight.
Having a drink
The slot machine bar is located in the middle of the games room and offers you the option to take a break from the games. There is a nice menu with all kinds of hot and cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and a special mention goes to the very nice blonde or amber Joa beer.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner (except Mondays and Tuesdays), and it a brasserie-style menu. The restaurant has a nice design and you can enjoy your meal with an exceptional view of the sea!
Watching a movie
There is also a movie theatre that shows all the biggest movies currently out there. From Thursday to Monday, the prices for a movie ticket are €6.50, Tuesday is €4, Wednesday costs €4.50 and Sunday at 11 am costs €4.
The casino does not offer accommodation, but you can find a hotel a few hundred metres from the casino. The hotel Le Richelieu is a small two-star hotel with prices starting from €65. There is also the Villa Aultia Hotel, a 3-star hotel in Ault which is located just 7 kilometres from Tréport.
In short, the Joa Casino in Tréport is a nice small casino. You can relax there when you come for a holiday or if you live in the area. The casino offers everything you need for a nice evening.
