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!

Hotel is not a great location due to it being at the southernmost point of the strip but we chose for our family for the pools. Room was outdated. Walls were paper thin. There was mold in the shower.

Hotel is not a great location due to it being at the southernmost point of the strip but we chose for our family for the pools. Room was outdated. Walls were paper thin. There was mold in the shower. Hotel is in desperate need of a refresh. Pool reservation system is awful. They are accepting 90-100% capacity in the hotel, requiring you pay a resort fee but only allowing 50% capacity at the pool. It is not clear or communicated well how to work the system. We waited 4.5 hours on a weekday to get into the pool. Ridiculous! Spent 1 full day attempting to get into the pool on a 1 week vacation. Very disappointing. Pick a better resort. This doesn’t have the location or appeal anymore. Pass. Read less

Apr 14, 2021 yardie8860 Kalamazoo, Michigan

The room in itself was great. Housekeeping was good. However, the check-in experience is why i will never return. after calling 5 times in 4 weeks to ensure that I had connecting rooms. Checking in at the airport on the MLIVE app at 11:00 am. I did not receive my room keys until 6.30 pm. The worst part i have been traveling with my family from… Read more

We chose Mandalay Bay for the pool. At no time were we made aware that you must wait in line 2-3 hours before the pool opened at 9AM to get on the "wait list" to get in the pool. Apparently there were no time limits once you were in so if you didn't camp out early in the am then no pool for your family. Extremely disappointed. will not return… Read more

Image of the Tripadvisor rating Room was amazing but the pool was impossible

Apr 14, 2021 mrsbabcock87

To go during COVID was stupid because the pool was impossible to get into. The staff was nice and the room was the best part. Will try again after the pool restrictions lessen, the bath tub in the room was the best part.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Thoroughly mediocre and a bad example of Vegas excess in the 90-00s

I'm a Vegas veteran averaging 8-12 trip a year pre-covid. Mandalay has been a mainstay but it's just getting worse and worse. I remember back in the days there would be slippers and bath salts available in the room. Now you have to call to have them delivered and they don't even have them sometimes, including bath gel.

I'm a Vegas veteran averaging 8-12 trip a year pre-covid. Mandalay has been a mainstay but it's just getting worse and worse. I remember back in the days there would be slippers and bath salts available in the room. Now you have to call to have them delivered and they don't even have them sometimes, including bath gel. Now they provide crappy toiletries and tiny pucks of soap like a motel 6. Pools are still nice and it's the reason I even consider staying here, but prices are out of wack even for strip prices. Beers at $10 is $2 more than their closest competitors. Have been dropping MB out of my rotation and will continue to do so as new hotels open up with plenty of offers for gamblers. Read less
