    A four star hotel with a grand lobby, spacious room, business center, self-service internet, indoor shopping, casino and shark reef, as well as a grand outdoor pool. Very decent environment and good customer service, with promotion:- one can get a good deal plus free show tickets.

    Walk from the parking to the hotel is long.

    The rooms are nice but the beds are too soft and not very comfortable.

    The bathroom is nice with a jetted tub, TV and a nice stall shower.

    It was 3am when we strolled in, hardly anyone there - I thought this was the city that never sleeps?!
    Grabbed food from the food court - it was amazing.

    The pool and swim areas make this hotel a hit with our family. Wave pool, lazy river, and swimming areas keep the kids busy. The restaurants were nice as well and we enjoyed a whole lobster dinner at a reasonable price.

    Das soll ein Hotel sein...?

    ...das ist eine Kleinstadt! Als wir das Mandalay Bay betreten haben wussten wir noch nicht so recht, was auf uns zu kommt. Dass es augenscheinlich ein großes Hotel ist, okay - das kann man von außen durchaus erahnen. Dass man sich aber auf der Casino Ebene in den Augen behalten sollte weil man den Abend sonst allein verbringt, muss man selbst erlebt haben.

    Neben den vielen Attraktionen, Spielautomaten, Shows und Blinkdingern muss man erst einmal versuchen, das eigentliche - nämlich das Zimmer - in den Vordergrund zu bringen:

    Der 55qm große Deluxe Room ist WAHNSINN! Komfortabel, elegant, geräumig und sauber! Das lässt für den Preis (unter der Woche) definitiv keine Wünsche offen. Dann nur noch der Blick direkt auf den Las Vegas Strip und ein Zimmer in einem der oberen Stockwerke und schon geht man nicht mehr vor die Tür.

    Sollte man aber definitiv, denn allein schon die Fülle an Restaurants INNERHALB des Hotels sollte begutachtet werden. Direkte Verbindungen zum LUXOR und EXCALIBUR lassen außerdem vermuten, dass Sin City noch weit größer ist, als das allein schon riesige Mandalay Bay...

    This resort was very impressive, the sheer size of the place and everything it holds is amazing. There are innumerable shops, restaurants, a beautiful array of pools, and even a House of Blues inside of the resort. However, given how expensive it is to stay there - I don't think that you should be charged a daily fee of $12 if you want wifi in your room (the budget hotels across the street have free wifi!). Also, every little thing costs. On the travel site we used to book our trip - the resort had incentives of added credits that came with your room. Come to find out there are weird limits and restrictions on these credits that they don't explain. Also, the location is strip side - sure... but alllll the way at the beginning of the strip. It was kind of a pain to get around, through all of the crazy traffic. Next time - I think I'll probably stay at a more central location, like the Venetian or Caesar's Palace... or jeez, maybe just a motel 6. Who cares?! You're not there to sleep right?!

    Amazing place if a little expensive to eat n drink but never mind. This was 5 star luxury. Big room on the top floor with amazing view of the strip. Huuuge comfy beds and an awesome bathroom with a phone in it!

    The food was really tasty (we ate at the Chinese place again as it seemed to be the cheapest place there) and the food, setting and staff were top notch apart from the stupid bar maid who tried to take the piss out of our accents. Yorkshiremen don't appreciate that and she got told.

    The pool was amazing, 3 different pools including a wave pool and a lazy rapids. Each of the pools had it;s own cocktail bar and jacuzzis, so we did the Bond thing and sipped Daiquaris with beautiful women in the jacuzzis. Top place, shame we missed a wicked gig at their club the night after. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, and for 5 star business like this, it's cheap too

    3 notes on Mandalay bay

    from

    Clientele: relatively young with lotsa' money; if you need to feel 'hip' and 'with it', this is a good place for that. (not intended as a criticism)

    Wave pool: the sandy beach is a nice touch, but the 'waves' are an absolute joke, more like a mild current rather than anything you'll find at a waterpark wave pool; and the Hitler Youth manning the wave pool are extraordinarily efficient at their job ("You zall NOT come vithin a half-mile of ze front vall!! You zall NOT hang onto ze outer valls for a nanosecond!! You zall NOT enter ze pool while ze vaves are inching in!! You are THROUGH here at Faber wave pool! We are calling the national office! We are revoking your charter! No more fun of any kind!!!')

    Eye candy: The cocktail waitresses working at Mandalay Bay are no better looking than many other casinos. They simply have the sleaziest outfits, which I do understand is what most guys who use the word "hot" actually mean by it.

    Fantastic Stay @ Mandalay Bay

    from

    Wow, this was my 10th trip to Vegas and by far the nicest property I've stayed at yet. In comparison to the Mirage, MGM, Luxor....no comparison. Very attentive staff, my huge room had both a shower and garden tub with great view of pool area. Only complaint, typically at a hotel of this caliber one expects a bathrobe, but oh well.

    Definitely recommend.

    Love this place!

    from

    Have stayed in several Las Vegas hotels (Aladdin, Monte Carlo among them) and have found Mandalay the most pleasant by far. If the eye candy in the hotel and casino isn't enough, the cozy and luxuriously comfortable rooms should be. The buffets and pool area are also fantastic!

    We will be back!

    Excellent as always

    from

    My wife and I stayed there this past Labor Day week. We arrived on Monday(Labor Day) and left the following Friday. We have stayed there the past three years in a row this same week. This is a great time to visit Las Vegas. It has always been excellent.

    The people are always friendly, food is great, and rooms are clean and very nice. We have never experienced any problems checking in-no long lines. The pool area is the best in town. Regular pools, lazy river pool with floats, and the wave pool with sand beach. The pool drink service is great!!

    There are in room safes! We have not experienced any noise in the hallways or in our room. We have stayed at Lady Luck, Ballys, Monte Carlo, and Mirage before. Mandalay Bay is the BEST! Look up their website and find out when the rooms are cheaper and plan your vacation that way. Enjoy!!

    It was just OK!

    from

    Front Desk was not properly manned for a Sat. night . . . 3 on duty with about 50 people in line. Had to argue to get the king room that we had reserved. Ended up with a smoking room on the 4th floor. The bathroom has a two-panels that do not come together properly, nor does it have a lock on it. The shower stall had a clear, see thru glass door which I personally don’t like . . . especially with no lock on the main bathroom door. (What if I was traveling with kids and didn’t want them in the bathroom while I was taking a “clearly visible” shower.) There were no handrails of any kind in the shower stall either. My husband used the round white soap in the bathroom the first night and by the next AM he was broke out from it. He said it made his skin burn & sting. The rooms were dark, even the bathroom. It was hard to apply make-up, even with the make-up mirror in the bathroom. Not much to choose from on TV. There are no in-room safes, which is not good in Vegas. I agree with a previous comment that I read; the hallways are noisy (due to poor insulation probably), the paisley print carpet is dirty and the tropical scent in the lobby gets to you after while. The Orchid Lounge was packed Tuesday evening and there was no cocktail waitress. She was there one time and then disappeared. We waited 30 minutes for the cocktail waitress to bring our drink back while playing the slots. It kept us playing and that was what they wanted I guess. It wasn’t really warm enough for the pool so I can’t comment on that, it looked nice though. The Rock Lobster restaurant is now closed as they are turning that location into something else. The Raffles Café (open 24-hours) is good. Everything that we had there was good. I really enjoyed the chicken noodle soup and their dinner rolls are excellent! The desserts looked great, but we never had room to try them. The staff was always pleasant in that location. The bed was comfy and the pillows were plentiful. The location in reference to the airport is great. However, it is

    he strip. Actually, it does not sit on the strip but is accessible via the monorail from the Luxor or Excalibur.

    Overpriced but ok

    from

    I stayed at Mandalay Bay in August of 2002. When we got there at 5 pm and went to our room, the previous vacationers were still there (just walking out when checkout is at noon.) That room had a view of a concrete roof not to mention the fact that the previous people looked like they were doing something heinous in the room when we arrived) so we called to get a diff room. That room had a decent view (kind of high) but the light in the bathroom was broke. The rooms were ok with a huge bathroom but I expected a little more for the $$$. The pools are way crowded and if you dont get out there early then you get stuck tring to run across the 200 degree sand and maneuvering through 100 chairs which they put so close together that you literally have to touch strangers to get through. The food at rumjumgle was excellent, a little pricey...but excellent but the shark reef was a disappointment and not worth the $12.95. I expected more of a hands on experience but got a national geographic walk thru with descriptuions. I cant say I ate at one bad place at Mandaly Bay so thats a good thing. We also went to the House of Blues club on pop night (saturday) and had an excellent time. They played awesome songs.

    Should've Learned The 1st Time!

    from

    My coworkers and I stayed at Mandalay Bay in 8/02 and it was the worst experience and biggest waste of time and money that I can ever recall having. We were in town for a convention. It was the second time that the convention was held there, and the second time that we stayed there. The first time, 8/01, my only complaint was that they screwed up our reservations. We had reserved 2 rooms for 2 nights. The rooms were to be held and payed for by the credit card of the buisness owner that we were there representing. They only reserved the rooms for one night and after what seemed like endless phone calls and faxes back and forth between the hotel and our employer I just ended up paying cash. When I made the reservations for our second stay, 3 nights, 2 rooms, they assured me that every thing was charged to the credit card and that I would not have the same problems as last year. Of course when we got there it was the same thing all over again. When I asked to speak to a supervisor, he (Dan)would not speak to me. He simply told the woman at the desk that she should give me a form and get the phone numbers and the whole faxing, phone call thing would begin again. The first night was fine. The second day I left my room at about noon to meet my coworkers for lunch. I returned to my room at 4:00 to freshen up for the convention. I returned to find that my watch(valued at about $300), and $500 that I had left tucked at the bottom of my purse on the table (the room had no safe) were gone. My first thought was housekeeping. I was on my way to meet my coworkers to tell them of what happened when I saw a note left on my tv cabinet addressed to Mom. I have no children. The reply was from Lynn. I don't know anyone named Lynn. Someone had been in my room! I called hotel security and waited half an hour for them to arrive. When they did I spent another hour with them. They gave me the number of a woman in guest relations named Melissa and told me to call her in a couple of days. After all of this I had to have my

    ...Barbary Coast. By the time this was all taken care of we had missed the most important part of the convention. When we returned there were messages left on our phones saying that our room keys were expired and that we had exceeded our 1 day reservation. Then having to deal with the front desk, we missed more of the convention. I asked for a supervisor again this time it was Steve. He came out and spoke to me and was very helpful in resolving the issue. That night and the 3rd night I got no sleep. Every noise I heard I thought someone was entering my room. In my thoughts, either housekeeping had let someone in or the people who had stayed in that room the previous night had keys that had not yet expired either way, this is a security issue for the hotel and a huge inconvenience for myself and my coworkers. When I called guest services, they said that they had not recieved the report yet and that they would call me in a few days. After 2 weeks had passed I called again. My call was returned the next day with a reply on my voice mail of "your report has been filed, we don't know what happened to your things, have a nice day". Have a nice day? No "I'm sorry", nothing. Not even an apology at least. Thousands of dollars LOST, a sense of security LOST, valuable time LOST, and all for what? Have a nice day. I will never go back! This is the poorest form of customer service I have ever seen. I guess that I should've learned the 1st time.

    Worth the $$$

    from

    Recently, I spent one night at Mandalay Bay. I have visited Vegas in the past and this is by far the nicest place I have stayed. The pool is the best in town. The casino has surprisingly good food and a lot of free stuff to do. For example: feeding the parrots by the check-in desk. The hotel is very open unlike the dark and dismal atmosphere of most other casinos.

    It was a bit pricey, but the room had a good view of the strip and had an oversized bathroom and closets that were wonderful. I would definitely stay there again.

    Bad experience

    from

    Over the Christmas holidays, we took my brand new car (less

    than 24 hours old) on a road trip to stay at the Mandalay Bay. I left my car with vallet (with an extra tip) to take care of my car. We left the next morning after my husband developed a high fever, and got home to find that I had a big dent in my back bumper. The vallet had intentionally taken my receipt and the hotel could find no record that I had my car in vallet (although "every car parked in vallet is video-taped". The hotel told me that they would not take responsibility, so now I have a new Lexus with a dented bumper. I don't recommend staying at the Mandalay Bay and I certainly recommend you don't leave your car under their care.

    3 nights at the Mandalay Bay in Vegas

    from

    Just a few thoughts on my visit to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas

    - The pools were crowded. If you are an adult that likes to just float around and relax this was not the place. The cost of a intertube was $20.00 a day.

    - The room (I got a suite) It was a little thread bear and I could hear the kids next door.

    - The staff were very accomodating. They seemed like they went out of their way to help

    - The buffet was excellent

    - The rum jungle had good food, but the night club was a bust. They seemed to have tables available but liked to keep people in a line outside. The entertainment and dancing in the casino clubs was a lot of fun.

    - There featured show Storm was ok.

    Overall I would take Ceasar's Palace. It seems more geared to the adults.
