We visited Las Vegas and stayed in the Bellagio in Dec 2012 and it was amazing, definietly the best hotel on the strip in my opinion and very central. We booked 2 rooms me and my husband had a huge room, with King size bed and massive bathroom with bath, separate shower and double sinks, my 16 and 17yr old had a room with 2 queen beds, both very nice. It was always spotlessly clean, infact the whole hotel is spotless. We had views to the rear of the hotel overlooking the outdoor heated pools and jacuzzi (even though it was dec we managed a few days in the pool and sunbathing) and all the lights of the city and mountains in the background were amazing.
It is 21 for drinking and gambling but our children didn't seem to find it a problem, they can still walk through all the casino's and there is plenty to do, the hotels are huge, you will walk like never before, take trainers or comfortable footwear.
All the hotels are huge most have their own shopping centre, (clothes are cheaper than at home) restaurants, casinos, etc
No one told us how expensive it was, £5-£6 for a bottle of bud, £50 for the 4 of us in the downstairs breakfast buffet. We found cheaper places towards the end of the week, up at freemont street is cheaper. You can also buy beer or drinks from the shop to take to your room, they provide an ice bucket and there is free ice vending on each floor to keep drinks cold.
A life saver for us was the 24hr bus pass which is $8 each, just go down to the bus stop (correct change) and they have a machine where you can buy this ticket and just hop on and off anytime. It runs all the way up the stip stopping at all the hotels (there is also an express which doesn't stop so much) but buses are every 10-15 mins and they tell you every stop.
Also we found out at end of week that there is a free shuttle train between some of the hotels, excalibur, luxor, mandalay bay. A free shuttle bus between Ballys and Rio (just look for shuttle signs in hotel) it was good for us as we went to a show there.
Excursions we did was the Heli usa (which is just behind MGM hotel and we got there on the bus) we did a tour of the strip, it was really cheap and well worth it, even though I didn;t think I liked helicopters it was great.
The other trip was the pink jeep safari to the grand canyon which takes 5 hrs to get there but it is amazing and you have to go, the trips expensive, but very good so if you can afford it I would do it if not there is a coach that goes and is much cheaper.
We only did the Penn and Teller show which was okay.
It is worth getting a free yellow booklet in the shopping mall that says vegas at the front, It has lots of vouchers in and also tells you what to look out for in each hotel.
Also It is very near the hotel about $15 one way which is about a tenner.
