I’m rating this hotel very low because as a newly wed, my husband and I wanted privacy as soon as we got to our hotel room. Unfortunately we didn’t get that because someone from mini bar came right into our room after knocking just once. Then we had the worst experience at one of the restaurants Citizen, not once but twice! Never again….
Amazing mini family vacation! This review is geared towards parents with toddlers. If you’re worried about taking kids to Vegas, don’t be! We took both our toddler kids and Mandalay Bay is the perfect spot for families. Family friendly and has an amazing pool. I’ll start with the following: MGM APP. We downloaded the app, super easy to use and convenient. Don’t waste your time at the front desk checking in, you can do that on the app and use your phone to unlock room door and parking. Each purchase you make is also uploaded quickly on the app so you can track all your purchases during your stay. You can check out with a breeze on it too. I don’t know why people don’t use this and avoid the long check in/out lines. Pool: amazing pool! The wave/beach pool is for kids 48 inches and taller BUT to the left of that is a kiddie pool and the smaller waves go towards that side so you can just relax on the beach with your kids if they’re still under 48 inches. The lazy river is awesome. TIP – bring your own tubes as they do not rent them. They sell them for $30 each but you can bring in your own and they have an inflation station. If you don’t care for them, you’re allowed to go in without them but when it’s crowded, you might get bumped. The bigger pool is also nice, tons of families go there. I think the deepest was 4 feet. There’s another pool geared towards adults when you first walk in. FYI, a 32 oz Miami vice will run you about $30 but so good when it’s hot LOL. Parking: $18 a night BUT you can park at any of the MGM hotels so it’s kind of nice if you don’t feel like walking strip but want to get closer to another hotel, just use the app to open gates at one of the MGM hotels. Tram: It’s FREE! Kids loved this. It goes from Mandalay Bay to Luxor and then Excalibur and back every 10-15 minutes I believe. We hoped on it a few times to check out Luxor and Excalibur. I will say though, Mandalay Bay seemed to have “fresher” air inside. Luxor is nice but you could smell the cigarette smoke more for some reason. Maybe there was a lot more smokers at the hotel, not sure. Room: Clean, big and has a huge bath tub the kids loved to go in there. They also have a walk in shower. We stayed in a 2 queen bedroom. Tons of room if you wanted to bring in a twin air mattress or cot for little ones. We took kids to M&M World, Coca Cola Store which is right next to M&M. Hershey store, drove to the “welcome to fabulous las Vegas sign” which is just a couple of miles away from hotel. We walked around and took pics at New York, New York. Didn’t get a chance to check out the fountains at Bellagio or the free circus act at Circus Circus Hotel but we figured we’d do that next time. Overall, amazing stay and won’t stay at any other hotel from now on. 2 nights went by quick and wish we stayed a 3rd because of pool. It was about 105 degrees (August) when we were there but didn’t feel like it in the pool.…
First class resort . Service,food,entertainment. A place I wil visit over and over again. Everyone from housekeeping to management were friendly and made you feel like a VIP.Be sure to try all the food spots all which are very good.
There's SO much to do under one roof! You could spend several days and never leave the building. I know because I just did. From the hotel to the casino to the aquarium to the Michael Jackson show to the concerts at the House of Blues to the convention center, shopping mall, food courts, etc the list is enormous. I'm extremely happy with my stay at the Mandalay Bay and can't wait to visit again!
We checked in and there was no water for about 2 hours, then the water came and there was no hot water until the next day. We literally could not do anything because we couldn’t get ready. This was supposed to be our couples night out.
I was here with family for a get together. It was a bit off the main strip hence the 4 stars but it is a nice cheaper alternative. The hotel is very nice comparable to Caesars and I really like the gold trims and designs outside and inside the resort. It’s also not as crowded which was perfect for family. They also have decent nightlife and rooftop lounges you can visit and get drinks. Would recommend if you want to experience the strip without the crowds
Room needs to be cleaned better but housekeeping was very friendly when items requested, visible dirt on bathroom floor, toilet light out so had to prop open door to see as door closes automatically; however, light was replaced later that day, casino floor was Smokey with cigarettes/cigars and 1 day without hot water was enough for me to decide where not to stay next time in Vegas.
There was multiple water cut during the stay. Before checkout we couldn’t take a bath since no water. AC was making too much noise and there was no solution. We spoke to manager multiple times but they compensate with resort credit.
We had no water in our room. Could not shower or enjoy the tub. Disappointing!!!! Could not use bathroom because it would not flush… disgusting!!!!! Could not get ready in morning brush teeth the usual use water routine in the morning. Total inconvenience. Would have better service at RV Park.
Fun trip to see Michael Jackson review . Great show! We stayed at Mandalay Bay Hotel which is a convenient location for the whole strip. We walked the whole strip and enjoyed seeing all the different hotels.
