Against the far wall, a long reception desk and electronic self check-in kiosks await arriving visitors. The resort’s 1,898 spacious, ocean view rooms and suites are modern and airy, tastefully appointed with stylish furnishings. The hi-tech amenities range from an electronic “smart” room key to a bedside tablet computer that controls lights, room temperature, hotel services, and Internet access. The elegant, supersized marble bathroom suites have his and her sinks, glass enclosed showers and separate toilets. Revel’s heart is its 130,000 square foot casino, an expansive, stunningly decorated space, a theatrical kaleidoscope of lights, colors, and textures. The gaming machines and tables are organized in different “neighborhoods,” defined by oversized lanterns, hanging art pieces, curtains of beads, and lowered ceilings. The lighting changes subtly, creating a warm atmosphere during the day, and a nightclub-like radiance in the evening. One of the resort’s draws is its “concept” restaurants from New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, along with dining venues operated by handpicked, awardwinning, celebrity chefs. Amada is an authentic Andalusian tapas bar by Chef Jose Garces, offering traditional Spanish small plates as well as seafood, meats, and paellas. Order white anchovies with pine nuts, grilled lobster, garlic shrimp, diver scallops, empanadas, and “cocas,” Spanish flat breads. If you prefer, treat yourself to “La Mesa de José,” a tasting menu prepared at the discretion of the chef, also available with paired Spanish wines. On weekends, the restaurant presents a fiery and exciting Flamenco Sitting Area. Guestroom. Bath Suite. July - August 2012
