“Don't plan an early check in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

We bought a package deal (flight plus hotel). Unfortunately, the flight arrived at 0920 but we couldn't check into our room until 1500. Considering we had to get up at 0300 to get to the airport on time, that was a bummer.

Also, the casino is quite smokey. Overall nice place though.

We thank you for your feedback. We would like to advise you that we offer an early arrival option that allows check-in prior to 3:00pm for an additional charge. We regret you were advised of this opportunity prior to your arrival. We hope to welcome you back to our resort in the near future.

Check in was easy. The room was a free upgrade and was HUGE with a view of the strip from 29 stories up..... beautiful! The location was just right, wish there would've been a tram down to the strip.... it's quite a walk.
Loved the room and the pool. The bathrooms were nice and big!

I would certainly stay again at the Mandalay Bay, but the rooms are a bit pricer than others on the strip. WIth that said, it was money well spent: the casino isn't very smoky and the rooms were VERY comfortable and quiet! The staff was exceptional!

Had a wonderful time at Mandalay!
The resort is beautiful, people are so friendly and helpful.
The rooms are nice , the staff is outstanding.
A wonderful selection of restaurants and the food is great.
The beach is a lot of fun too.

I wouldn't go to Vegas if I couldn't stay at Mandalay.

Love the wave pool! Great value midweek deal using MLife offer. Easy to get around using Mandalay bay to Excalibur tram. Lots of great restaurant variety.

The hotel may be located at the end of the strip but after having visited a lot of the other casinos, it was always so good to get back "home" where the casino air was clean and fresh, the servers always around to deliver a new drink and a whole host of tasty restaurants to choose from including Alain Ducasses' MIX

The hotel was phenomenal but it is a huge facility so take your walking shoes. The Buffet restaurant was absolutely worth the money. The selections and the taste of the food were outstanding.
