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!

I used to stay at multiple properties, but I've switched 100% to Mandalay for the following. Incredible rooms/service, beach is great and easily accessible, variety of food options, great slots/table games, and ubers are quick and easy if you need to get anywhere! Always worth the stay, go see for yourself!

My Husband and I came here for two nights. The resort was beautiful. The pools were nice. The tram was very convenient. The mobile app was very useful.

I'll start with the positives of the resort, because there are a lot of them! Mandalay Bay really has everything you could ever need under one roof. The building is extremely well kept, and all the staff in every department we encountered were great. The pool is truly second to none. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and very well kept. My point of complaint is that the rooms (and other parts of the resort) have extremely inconsistent temperatures and humidity. We could not get the room temperature to stay consistent at any point during the stay. Throughout the night we were either freezing cold or sweating profusely depending on when the AC wanted to kick in (and yes we know how to use the thermostat). Between that and the air in the room being so dry, our skin was dry as can be, our noses were crusty and bloody, and we were completely under slept. Some might think "this guy must be in Vegas for the first time", but that's not the case! I usually go around 6 times a year, and have stayed at the majority of strip (and some Fremont) properties. In fact, this was the second resort we stayed at this weekend alone, and these issues were simply not present at the other resort despite those days actually being hotter and dryer outside. The only other time I've encountered anything like this in the past was at Delano. I had hoped the issue was isolated to that tower / room / floor, but unfortunately I was wrong. Even with this trip, our friends staying on another floor within Mandalay Bay experienced all the same issues. Hopefully one day upgrades are made to the central air, because this is a truly spectacular resort. Yes the location isn't ideal if you want to be in the middle of the action of the strip, but they really have everything you could need on property, and there's a shuttle that runs between Mandalay/Luxor/Excalibur if you want to get further north on the strip quickly. Where it lacks in being strip central, it wins with being extremely close to the airport! Read less

Stayed at Mandalay Bay with our teenage son and had a great time. The pool was the best. We enjoyed the wave pool and lazy river. Had breakfast at Citizens and it was very good. Staff was accommodating by getting us adjoining rooms with my sister and her family. Although it’s at the far end of the strip, we utilized the tram to get us closer to mid strip. Room was very spacious and modern. I would definitely stay again!! Read less
