Mandalay Bay

The Strip, Las Vegas

Virgin rating

The hotel

Everywhere you turn there are awesome spectacles to behold in this exotic wonderland, including the amazing 1.6 million-gallon aquarium known as Shark Reef, world-class nightlife in the form of LIGHT Nightclub, and top class cuisine makes an appearance in Kumi Japanese Restaurant. More highlights include the whopping five swimming pools, lazy river ride, and a wave pool with a sandy beach, all of which give you a welcome relief in that midday Vegas sun. The fully air-conditioned Casino on the Beach is accessible in your swimwear too, even the dealers wear casual beach outfits! All in all, Mandalay Bay is not so much a hotel as a big, beautiful resort city with everything you need right on property!

Image of the Tripadvisor rating Nice but expensive

Our stay was nice but there was nothing spectacular that justified the price we paid for two nights. The staff was friendly and helpful. Don't bring any leftovers home from restaurants though because there is no refrigerator for personal use. The Citizens restaurant was amazing though, we went there two times!

May 17, 2022 Wwjdolson Phoenix, Arizona

Shower wouldn’t drain, 50 minute wait in rewards line, room cleaning had to be on their schedule- every excuse was “lack of staff”- which may be true but their is no price break to match their poor service level.

Navigating the hotel was fairly easy and the views were wonderful. The free tram came in handy and the beach/pool area has ample seating and was quite enjoyable. The rooms could have been cleaned a bit more thoroughly and the elevator was easily heard but was easy to tone out.

- Casino was good, spacy and good lighting - Hotel is nice - rooms are spacious but outdated - Service was great - Shops in the Hotel are all overpriced - Pool closed a 6:00 pm😫 - East Pool Area with Cabanas closed during the week after Holiday ? Why ?

First time staying here & I’ll definitely be booking here in the future! The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful by letting us check-in early. It’s great to know that guests are offered a discount for the Michael Jackson ONE show & the pool area is amazing!
