The complex is just across the road from Summerstrand beach, and has different food options (fast food, restaurants etc). It has an gaming arcade and casino too. We stayed for a short while for lunch only.

A safe place for a walk, maybe some shops and take a dinner. You can also walk along the waterfront.

You need to try your luck at least once on a breakaway trip .......The staff assisiting you with application of mvg card was very friendly and helpful .....overall experience was average .....think more can be done to upgrade the gambling area ....otherwise a great way of a night out

What a fab place! Right on the doorstep of our hotel so we were spoiled for choice as to where to go for food. It was pretty quiet when we visited, but it was off season so that's to be expected, plus it meant we could appreciate the place without the crowds.

The boardwalk is situated right along Summerstrand. There are plenty of entertainment i.e. movies, kids play area and lovely water fountains. Plenty of small shops and restaurants available.

We were staying in a hotel nearby so this was really convienient place for us to pop by and get something to eat. Sadly the fountain show was not working when we were there which was a disappointment.

Probably be fun for families with little ones. Other than that the usual restaurants. Not bad. Apparently they have water & light shows at night time, but wind was too strong so it was cancelled the night we were there. Close to the beach, so its nice to grab a bite when you come from the beach.

Centrally located entertainment area. Lots of shops and places to eat plus the casino if you want to do some gambling. Pity the fountains in the lake are not working as this would make the area a bit more interesting. When i saw the fountains advertised I was expecting something like Belaggio in Las Vegas but alas no.
