Great air on in the sweltering heat. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff are super friendly and I enjoyed the restaurant food. Situated just outside of the town on the main road, it’s easy to get to a great location on the golf course.

I enjoyed the golf course view from my balcony and will recommend this hotel . I have one recommendation for the kitchen. I don't eat pork but bacon was added to my breakfast.Checking on diet needs by staff can prevent such.

I really enjoyed my stay at Desert Palace. There is so much to do there. The staff are really friendly and the rooms are well equipped and comfortable.

The only issue I had was that I was given a packed lunch containing meat when I asked for a veggie meal. But apart from that, everything was perfect!

Everything here at the casino was below average or worse. For the amount that you pay for an executive room you can get way better value for money somewhere else in town. Me & my partner went on a day trip, and booked it as such. The room they gave us had 2 single beds instead of just 1 double. I was okay with it but then they only gave 1 set of towels and 1 of everything else (eg. Coffee etc). The fridge was full of mold. The phone was broken so no room service or front desk calls. So we went to the restaurant, they are heavily overpriced and the food is so disappointing and again, below average. Don't understand how they're still open.

Situated, ironically, close to the Cemetery on the edge of town, this Hotel is in it's death throes. Staff are untrained and indifferent.Security is cursory. The whole ambience of the place is uncaring and run down. When we were there the Restaurant was closed and the Shop did not take credit cards! The rooms are small, furnishings old and faded - the only chairs in our "Premium" room were two blue plastic garden chairs. We were so disappointed in our experience there ,we did not return even though we had paid in advance.

I know that it is a casino. Maybe allocate section of hotel for business guest so the late night early morning rowdiness does not disturb guests that just need a peaceful nights rest. The pool area is ok but could do with some caring, especially the water treatment as your summer days are very hot.

Sadly our rooms were not ready, even though we were given our keys on check in at 4pm. Sadly towels only arrived later in the evening.

Not sure why you want 200 characters, so I just add a few useless letters -)

Nice and clean. Just wish we planned more time to use the facilities. We arrived late due to an unexpected problem. It all looked good and nice and quiet. We would use the venue again when we return. Helpful staff
