Belterra Casino Resorts

We found the Belterra Casino Resorts hotel and Casino by accident and Belterra Casino Resorts Hotelwe are glad we did.  Driving along the interstate one day on our way to Tunica, Mississippi, we decided to stop for a coffee and a sandwich.  Once we got off the interstate, there were signs advertising the Belterra Casino Resorts hotel and Casino, so we thought that we may as well go there for lunch, since all casinos are known for their food. We were not disappointed.  This is a first class hotel with many of the amenities that you would find in any Las Vegas hotel. The casino is typical of the virtual riverboat casinos and so it is not as nice as some of the land based casinos, but it is more than sufficient for any ones needs.

An Elegant Hotel

Belterra Casino Resorts HotelThe Belterra Casino Resorts hotel is very elegant and reminds us of the Bellagio to some degree, but on a much smaller scale. Well landscaped out front with water fountains, lots of marble inside with very nice rooms and restaurants. We were really pleased by this hotel since it seems to be in the middle of no where, yet it has all the elegance of Las Vegas style hotel and casino. We will add better pictures of the hotel and grounds next time we are there in Feb 2010.

There are numerous reviews available on some sites, that are quite positive about the Belterra Casino Resorts hotel, although we saw one Belterra Casino Resorts Hotelnegative review after it just opened. Still some construction and new paint smells that did not agree with the writer. We echo the positive reviews about this hotel and we are confident in saying that anyone visiting for a weekend or just passing through will be quite satisfied.


Slot Machines

There are 1600 slot machines of various types and denominations and 54 table games ranging from blackjack to roulette.  There is a par 71 18 hole golf course near by that is ranked in the top 20 casino golf courses inthe United States by Golfweek 2007, the pool area is very enjoyable and the shopping is like many casinos, somewhat expensive, but great variety. They have just about anything the average casino winner is looking for. Shops at the Belterra Casino Resorts hotel include B. Loved, Bling, Blush of Belterra, Studs, TEN. ETC, and Belflora.

Rooms at the Belterra Casino Restors hotelWe were very pleased with the rooms, they were clean and well appointed. The Belterra Casino Resorts Hotel is relatively new and so the rooms and the hotel in general reflect the elegance and style of a new hotel that is among the best there is to offer.

We have only stayed once at this hotel, however we plan to go back several times over the next year to enjoy what it has to offer.

Belterra Casino Resorts – Restaurants

There are some great restaurants and eateries at the Belterra Casino Resorts hotel and Casino including: Jeff Ruby’s steakhouse, The Ultimate Buffet, Aquarium Cafe, Starbucks, Casino Cafe, Ben and Jerry’s scoop andOut of Bounds Bar and Grill.

We ate at the buffet only while we were their last time. Found it to be excellent with lots of selection as well as quantity. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant. Next time we will try several of the other restaurants we have listed.

What We Liked

  • Variety of slot machines
  • Free drinks while gambling
  • Free entertainment at the bar located in the casino
  • Buffet
  • Pool area is free to hotel guests with a heated outdoor pool and there is also a spa. However we do not know if this is included for room guests.
  • Hotel rates are very reasonable and comparable to staying at some of the chain hotels such as Hampton inns or Holiday inn express. In fact last time we stayed we paid the going rate since we were new to this property and found it to be $10 less than the above mentioned hotels.
  • Covered garage parking
  • Easy access from all highways, although you do have to drive for 7 minutes from exit 55 off of interstate 71
  • Safe environment in the casino, hotel and parking areas
  • Great stopover point on your way to Biloxi or points west, or to spend a luxurious weekend at this casino resort hotel
  • Starbucks coffee, with free WI-fi when it is working

What We Did Not Like

  • There are no real complaints about the Beau Rivage hotel & casino
  • Wireless Internet can be purchased for $9.99 for a 24 hour period .
  • It is a 5 star hotel in our estimation and quite adequate for our needs
