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, 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!

Almost every interaction with the hotel staff had undertones and policies based around trying to get more money out of me. The rooms are also slightly dated (How about some USB access ports or some exhaust for the toilets?).

I was so sorry to leave. I could have spent a whole week at the resort and not step foot on the Vegas Strip. There were so many activities to experience: the ice bar, the tram, the beach club, the aquarium, and numerous restaurants. My husband enjoyed the turkey sandwich at Citizen.
