Mandalay Bay

The Strip, Las Vegas

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 includes LIGHT Nightclub. Japanese cuisine makes an appearance in Kumi Japanese Restaurant. It includes five swimming pools, a lazy river ride and a wave pool with a sandy beach. The fully air-conditioned Casino on the Beach is accessible in your swimwear; 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!

Upon arriving at 8 pm the door lock did not work and required a 2 hour service by maintenance which was frustrating. The room was dirty and housekeeping would not clean regularly as requested. Also no soaps in room so bring your own. Hotel dirty and a lot of broken elevators and other stuff. Additionally sections of the casino had a foul sewer… Read more

Mandalay Bay is not near the monorail; you require a trip on the tram to Excalibur, then another 10-15 minute walk to the monorail station at MGM Grand. Inside the room, one cannot use the fridge to store anything (water, insulin, breast milk, whatever) lest you incur $50 charges for moving items around plus the black sensors in the fridge trigger… Read more

Inside the room, one cannot use the fridge to store anything (water, insulin, breast milk, whatever) lest you incur $50 charges for moving items around plus the black sensors in the fridge trigger extra charges for minibar items. The mobile app failed to facilitate checkout or to operate elevators or room lock. Read less

Mandalay, like all of the hotels on the strip are trying to regain their standing since reopening after/during the pandemic. Staffing shortage is apparent but the staff they have are obviously making an all out effort to satisfy the needs of their guests. Towels and wash clothes looked dingy and worn and I had to request fresh ones from my housekeeper. Besides that, the rooms and common areas were clean but looked dated. Read less
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Good hotel but far from the main strip

Oct 27, 2021 patrickhanna2 Montreal, Canada

Clean hotel, nice rooms, comfortable beds. Staff is okay but nothing special. Casino has high limits (25$ on most tables) which makes tou commit a big budget if you want to gamble. Ideal location if you want to go to the nfl stadium but it is far from the main attractions of the strip.

The hotel is beautiful, the pools are great, the room was large with plenty of closets and a big bathroom. What I did not like was in room coffee costs $12+. This is the only hotel I've ever stayed in that doesn't give you free in room coffee. If they had charged me $12 extra for the room, I would have stayed there anyway. But $12 for coffee, I… Read more
