For many people, a trip to St. Martin often includes planning a visit to a casino. There are quite a few casinos on both the French (GCBC) and Dutch sides of the island.
Adjacent to Princess Juliana International Airport, Maho village is a one-of-a-kind mini-Vegas of the Caribbean, with all the sequins and glitter, lights and music, nightclubs and casinos to go with it. Maho Village is a “destination within a destination” that has truly redefined entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming in a vibrant resort atmosphere.
The original Casino Royale is the largest casino on St. Martin, boasting 14,000 square feet of gaming. Thirty gaming tables and 500 state-of-the-art slot machines tempt lady luck. Actually, Ian Flemming set the original Casino Royale in the fictional town Royale-les-Eaux in Northern France, so there is no connection save for the name.
