There are enough things to do to keep busy without stepping foot in the casino, but there’s no denying that the casino is the star attraction. Belterra keeps friendly professional staff and comfortable rooms for those looking for either some quiet time or for fast-paced gambling action.
Belterra Riverboat Casino
The casino is a two-story stationary riverboat. Both floors have plenty of gaming options, from slots to table games to poker. Like many casinos, Belterra has converted all slot machines to the ticket-out variety, so payouts are by ticket rather than coins or tokens.
A large selection of penny slot machines is on the lower level of the boat. The upper level has a high-rollers area, cafe, non-smoking slot area, and poker room. The casino holds daily poker tournaments.
Belterra has more than 600 guest rooms, both regular and deluxe. The bathrooms in the deluxe rooms have a shower and hot tub, as well as a wall-mounted plasma television. The bathrooms of the regular rooms, while not as large as in the deluxe, are still spacious.
The rooms also feature comfortable beds, safes, Starbucks coffee, and high-speed internet connections. The television offers movie and game rentals, a child lock, HBO, and in-room check out so you can avoid waiting in line at the front desk.
The spa is open 7 days a week and offers massages, facials, bodywraps, manicures and pedicures. It also features a hair and nail salon. It is best to make an appointment for any treatments before you get to the resort, because during busy times guests may not be able to find an available time. It also has a sauna, steam room, and gym that is free for guests.
The hotel also features an outdoor heated pool, open from May to October. There is also a Tom Fazio designed, par 71 golf course, and several meeting rooms. The CenterStage theater is small, but all seats have a clear view of the stage, even from the sides and the balcony section.
Shopping and Dining
There are seven shops to explore, including Ten, a store where everything is priced at $10. It has a large selection of jewelry, purses, scarves, hats and ties. Another highlight is Blush, a high-end women’s store that has clothing from designers such as Michael Kors and DNKY, and also a small selection of plus-size clothing.
Other stores are the jewelry store Bling, the men’s clothing shop Studs, the lingerie shop B.Loved, the florist Belflora, and the gift shop ETC. There are also two kiosks that may have anything from shoes to gifts for your pet.
There are three restaurants in the main walkway of the resort: The Ultimate Buffet, the Aquarium Cafe, and Jack Ruby’s Steakhouse. In addition, this walkway has a Starbucks and a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream parlor. The Casino Cafe is located within the casino itself, while the Out of Bounds grill is in the golf course clubhouse. There is also a bar in the lobby of the hotel. Click here for more information.
