“Modern Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stayed at Mandalay Bay on March 9 and 10, 2013. Traveled as a family vacation starting in Las Vegas and driving through Arizona.
- resort is vertical and easy to maneuver; 2 entrances so you can bypass the casino if needed;
- central elevator area to find rooms; room is spacious with very comfortable beds and pillows; soundproofing is good; bathroom is large with 2 sinks, large bath and separate shower area.
- finding food: we only ate at the small cafe for breakfast which was good
- shark reef: excellent; well built and interesting - Disney level attraction
- pools: excellent; sand beach, wave pool, small lazy river, 2 smaller pools, hot tubs - all heated.
- shops: many shops - a mini mall in the lower level
- tram: there is a free tram which runs from M.Bay to the Luxor and Excalibur, which is nice. The tram is okay but not like the smooth ride at DisneyWorld. It does save on the dreaded street walking though. Beware of walking the strip - the sidewalks wind around and up to walking bridges. Wish we would have known this prior. We did a lot of walking. We took cabs also but those were around $25 each time we went up the strip. They (the city and casinos) really need to spend some of their wealth and build a tram all the way up and down the strip. It is much needed.
- Families: do not go on the strip at night - too many creepy characters and men handing out naked prostitute photos everywhere - just awful and not good for kids to witness. But it is legal in the great state of Nevada. There is a lot for kids to see though but rent a car and be in control of what they are seeing.
- Loved the Caesar's Palace Forum Shops - my 13 year old loved it as well.
- Loved the Stratosphere - amazing at the top
- Liked the Stratoshere Roxy's restaurant - the waiters sang old songs while we ate

We enjoyed a 3 night stay here after 2 nights at Treasure island. We wanted to spliot our 'strip' time between each end of the strip.
Checkin was quick and easy and whilst waiting we were given a bottle of water which was a very nice touch. Our room was beautiful a huge window, large room with very comfortable beds and a large bathroom with a big bath and seperate shower with lovely products. The room and corridors were all very clean and well maintained.
We could see the stalled structure of the observation wheel on the wasteland at this end of the strip from our window. However, the wheel at the Quad appeared to be well on it's way to being completed.
We weren't huge fans of the Casino here it appeared to be under some kind of renewal, as there were banks of slots missing and at the sides stacked slot machines which weren't in use. Which gave it a rather dishevelled feeling. Also the drink service was really bad, so we rarely used our home casino, preferring to go further onto the strip. Hopefully when the refurb has finished it will return to the very nice casino it has been in the past.
In all the staff and property are very good and we will definately stay again.

Room Tip: High level strip or Mandalay Beach view

From arriving to leaving this was a fantastic experience, we came her for my wife's 50th & there was 6 of us we enjoyed our stay immensely. The rooms were very clean & comfortable, restaurants we used excellent service good quality food. The whole experience of this hotel for us was great & will be our first choice when we come back to Las Vegas.

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino made our trip to Vegas a good experience. The rooms are clean. Beds are super comfortable. The service of all the staff is polite and helpful. I would recommend this resort to everyone. In fact I liked it so much I am having my granddaughter's 21 birthday there.

Not expected. Hallways littered with room service trays. Strange smells in hallways and room. Room very worn. Furniture damaged everywhere. Way over due for a renovation. Weird window in bathroom. Poorly designed and poorly decorated. Skip this hotel until they renovate. Better options everywhere. Location is very secluded and the rooms are not worth the walk.

Each year I am able to stay here for my company meetings. The rooms are huge. They include a massive Jacuzzi, separate shower and separate w/c. The hotel is clean and very well taken care of. I have never experienced a single issue. The casino has something for everyone, the restaurants are varied and top notch. This hotel connects to the Luxor by way of a mall which has lots of great shops and restaurants. And with the tram you can easily connect to the rest of the strip. A great place to stay.

Awesome hotel/casino on the end of the strip - go in the summer as they have one of the best pools in Vegas. Love the Shark Reef, and there are some awesome bars - Minus 5 and Red Square. Casino is open and bright and spacy. Like a good casino should be. They have a good train running between other properties so the location is good.
