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!

What worst kind of hotel that would insult a religion solely based on peace "Ahimsa parmo Dharma" (Non-violence by all means and at all costs), that JAINISM is.

What worst kind of hotel that would insult a religion solely based on peace "Ahimsa parmo Dharma" (Non-violence by all means and at all costs), that JAINISM is. Insulting the religion, it's deities and it's followers spread across the world. Keeping the idols of Jain tirthankars in a restaurant serving alcohol and meat, when even a strict non-drinker and a non root veggies eater vegetarian has to take shower, wear fresh clothes, and cover his mouth before he can touch the idol. What kind of a low life would derive pleasure in insulting such a peace loving religion? Why would someone do that? Isn't religious tolerance and respect a thing you would expect anyone to follow anywhere? Read less

Having stayed in Vegas many times, we always avoided Mandalay Bay based on its distance down the strip, but, having stayed there recently it has now become one of our favourites! For a video review of our room, please head over to You.Tube and search for 'Tim and Matt's Travel Reviews' for this, and other resorts. So let's start with the location. It is the resort farthest south of the strip so if walking, it does take a while to get to and from. You can walk outside, or use the connecting bridges to Luxor and Excalibur. There is also a free monorail that connects to Luxor and Excalibur which take only a minute to get you there. Thanks to both the monorail and the connecting bridges, Mandalay Bay didn't actually feel as far as it is. The casino floor is a huge 'square' shape with bars in the centre and dotted around. The ceilings are high meaning it does feel a little less smokey than some of the others. Also, late at night, if there are no events on, it is quieter than some of the central resorts which you may find as a positive or negative. There is a food court which is a bit of a trek away from the main floor and when we went for breakfast early, it wasn't open so ended up grabbing a Starbucks of which there are a few. There is a huge convention centre but we did not use this. The pool areas look fantastic and has a large wave pool and real sand beach which can get very busy as it is often hailed as one of the best pools in Vegas. Our room was fantastic. We received a great deal from M-life for a two bedroom suite, which, for the three of us that visited, provided a mass of space for us with some amazing views. Our room faced the Raiders Stadium but also provided views of the pools, airport and the strip. The beds were super comfortable and the living areas provided loads of space - probably more than we needed! Check in was fine, nothing special but if you do find the queue is long, there is a water fountain with cups nearby you can grab to have in line. The check in process did not take longer than was necessary. I did ask to have a different view but was told this was not possible due to my special offer, which was fine as I didn't realise at the time we would still have a partial strip view! Housekeeping was always excellent and the general cleanliness of the resort was always of a good standard. We visited just before the lockdown back in March and already there were plenty of anti-bac stations everywhere and I believe MGM resorts and Mandalay Bay are taking more precautions than some others as they re-open. Would we recommend staying here? Yes! And we would stay here again. Read less

I stayed here for a convention in July for a week, and overall my experience was mostly exceptional. The service was very professional and helpful, from checking in to staff around the convention center. I appreciated that it is at the south end of the strip, so a little quieter and farther removed from the party scene. The lobby was very classy, and I enjoyed how the casino was not the first thing you walk into, but could be avoided if you were just going up to your room. You did have to walk through the casino to get to the convention center however. The elevator system was rather efficient, with three elevator banks going to different sets of floors. Our room was very spacious, with comfortable beds, and a lovely bathroom. We had a nice large window view overlooking the pool area on a high floor. There were plenty of restaurant choices in different parts of the hotel and convention center, including an Irish pub, the house of blues, an American style diner, a really fabulous Japanese sushi restaurant, and so many others. The pool area was a bit crowded, but the wave pool was a fun experience, and the lazy river was pleasant. Bring your own inner tubes if you are able, as they are quite expensive to buy or rent. The convention center was laid out logically and was easy to navigate, and the staff was always very efficient at set up and teardown. We did not have a chance to visit the shark reef aquarium, but it looked fun. There is also a free tram between this hotel and the Luxor and Excalibur hotels. There is a designated spot to pick up Uber and Lyft down on the lower level. Beware not to take anything out of your mini bar refrigerator, as you will absolutely be charged. Food is definitely not cheap here, but I suppose that’s common in Las Vegas. Overall, if visiting the city again, I would definitely choose this hotel for its more relaxing scene and professional atmosphere. Read less

Mandalay Bay is a great place to visit for anything you need. The casino is huge. Food options are plentiful with numerous restaurants (with a large diversity of food). Large convention area. Entertainment is excellent with shows as well as the Shark Reef.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The room was great, the bed very comfortable. The buffet was excellent. and not expensive. Staff friendly and helpful. Why they would want to aggravate their customers by charging $50 if you want to use the fridge I can't imagine.
