South Beach Casino & Resort Hotel
South Beach Casino & Resort is a 3-star hotel located in Scanterbury, a town near Lake Winnipeg, one of the largest lakes in Canada. The complex prides itself on being eco-friendly, participating in the Green Key Eco-Rating Program. The guesthouse has 95 rooms, a large casino, and several other attractions. It is a good place for fans of hiking: guests have an opportunity to visit Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail and Patricia Beach Provincial Park, enjoy some lovely views, and make excellent photos. It takes about an hour to drive there from the nearest airport.
Apart from its usual rates, the hotel offers three different packages: Stay & Play and High Roller packages aimed at casino players and Romance at the Resort — for couples. They include the room price, late checkout, some free dining options, and casino bonuses. Other promotions are available as well, mainly for members of the Ocean Club.

South Beach is a fitting choice for both work and leisure. It offers a large business center, thus being suitable for conferences. Visitors with children can book special family rooms and spend time in a tropical pool. And lovers of gaming can try their luck at the casino.
The hotel’s 20,000 sq. ft. casino provides more than 460 various slot machines. The available games include Wheel of Fortune, Farmville, Fort Knox, IGT, and Konami. A single bet does not exceed $5. There are also blackjack tables, but no other games are featured, so it is not the best place for fans of cards or roulettes. South Beach offers Stay & Play and High Roller packages, which include free $20 per person to play.
Dining options include Mango’s Restaurant, the Blue Dolphin Lounge, and South Beach Café. The restaurant is the main dining site. It is buffet-style and has no specific kitchen, featuring burgers and signatures, such as pork ribs, meatloaves, and schnitzels. Take-out is available, as well as kids’ menu. The café in the lobby provides quick snacks and beverages, and the Blue Dolphin Lounge is perfect for an evening drink.
There is an Art Deco swimming pool on-site, decorated with a beautiful waterfall that creates a tropical atmosphere. Children are allowed in, but those under 12 years old must be accompanied by their parents. There are also regular live performances in the Blue Dolphin Lounge (each Friday and Saturday). For those who want to spend an evening out, there is another casino option in the town, the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation Entertainment Centre.
The hotel also hosts annual car and bike shows. Those are great days for families to come and take part in outdoor festivities.
There is a gift shop on-site, but it is rather small. Those who wish to go shopping can explore the town and see what it has to offer, though it should be noted that Scanterbury is not the greatest place for this kind of leisure. There are a couple of community stores nearby, but no large stores or shopping malls.

An option similar to Deluxe King, but with two separate queen-size beds. This one is better suited for friends who are traveling together. The price is the same, as these two types are considered to be standard rooms.

Junior Suites have a bedroom and a sitting room. They are 752 sq. ft. large and located on the Executive floor as well.
