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 in the form of LIGHT Nightclub, 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!

My wife had been wanting to visit Mandalay Bay for a long time, so we decided that our 25th anniversary was the perfect time. Just getting to the check in was a chore, as self parking is on the farthest side of the hotel from the desk. When we checked in, the desk agent asked if we were celebrating anything, and after we told him, he didn't offer any perks for loyalty, or such an occasion, as we have had offered at other hotels. After asking about upgrades, he offered $50 off on a room upgrade of almost $300. The elevators, especially in the self park garage were nasty dirty, the floors were sticky, and some call buttons did not work. The room didn't have washcloths, or enough towels, and everything, including the use of an in-room fridge was an additional charge. Trash, room service carts, and broken refrigerators were left in the hallway for more than a day. We have stayed at many properties on and off the strip, and this was the worst. we will NOT be coming back Read less

Amazing spot, near everything in Vegas and 5 min away from the airport. Mandalay Bay has very good restaurants and clubs. You don't have to go outside if you are going to Blackhat. I had an amazing view from my room and very nice pools

This hotel is always a fan favorite of ours. I’m a Platinum MGM life guest and retrieving an incoming package is a debacle. Asked the bell desk and he couldn’t help me so he sent me to the front desk. The line was super long so I went to the priority check in desk due to my status. That agent suggested that I wait until tomorrow to retrieve my package. I told him time was of the essence (hotel didn’t even contact me earlier to notify it arrived). He called his manager and was advised to ask the bell desk. So I walked back to the bell desk and was again redirected to the front desk. I went there but the line was super long so I gave up. Getting a package retrieved in big hotel with lots of staff and departments shouldn’t be impossible. If I wasn’t a peasant with my Platinum status, then maybe I could just call my host for help. But why should it be so difficult. I’ll just wait and retrieve my package directly from the hotel FedEx tomorrow. Read less

Everything was perfect! The family loved the pool and the food choices were great. Location is away from strip but the free monorail makes it easy to get around when you want to leave the complex. Will be back
