  • It's always a pleasure to walk around Monte and feel like you've been whisked away from reality for a little bit. There is always a positive buzz. Happy people. Lots to do in terms of entertainment for both adults and kids. Movie theaters are always clean. Comfy seats. Many restaurants to choose from. The arcade is always a hit with the kids. It's a great place to go to with your family or on a date or even just for a bit of solo shopping and leisure time.
  • Not a bad casino. I have to say I am not much of a gambler but when I want to play blackjack there are almost never any spots available. Seems like a very popular game. On the other hand even if I cannot play there are some really nice restaurants at Monte and would definitely recommend them. The theater is also really nice and they have some great show there.
  • Monte is fantastic if you have the money to spend. It caters largely to an international audience with strong currency. So if you have the cash then the options of where to spend it are limitless. For those locals who have enough there is a lot to do as well but no more than your local mall. Still a great experience.
  • I don't often frequent casinos and when I do it is hardly for the gambling aspect. I thus have no comment on that. As for the rest of it, it is okay. I have attended a few functions here and never had a bad experience really. They have some nice outlets situated here as well. I do find the whole Italian village theme a bit wanting and it is very reminiscent of another casino, Emperor's Palace. I do however find Montecasino better though.
  • Pleasant overall experience. One of the premium venues in jhb. Convenient for locals and good enough for tourists. Lots of other entertainment besides the casino. The complex houses food court and upmarket restaurants. Great movies and gaming section for the kids. Tuscan style building. Be sure to visit the outdoor piazza on expo days and a must visit during the day is the adjacent BIRD PARK
