Review written by Sophie Couard, on March 31, 2015.
The Spanish island of Ibiza is one of the Balearic Islands and famous in the whole world. The island welcomes thousands of tourists every year, and the whole world visits to party to the rhythms of the biggest international DJs. It has been a popular tourist destination since the 1960s and 1970s, and not just for entertainment, the island is also a tropical paradise with beautiful landscapes and many UNESCO world heritage sites, such as the Sa Caleta, the Ibiza harbor or the egg of Columbus.
If you are a player just like me, there is also another attraction that will be of interest to you: the Casino of Ibiza. But what does this casino offer? This is what I will elaborate on in this review about it in the few paragraphs below.
An excellent casino
Before I start with more details about the game selection of the establishment, I would like to talk a little about the interior decoration, as it is particularly nice. The Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola designed this luxurious space that offers a multi-sensory experience. You can enjoy various works of internationally renowned artists, such as Takashi Murakami and the different architectural elements and used materials both show the beauty of the Mediterranean and also the culture of the island. In short, the interior design is very pleasant and combines tradition and contemporary design.
