We first checked out GVR in 2010. We took the free shuttle from Mandalay Bay (which was quite the chore to locate) to GVR which was great. Our intention was to tour the resort, have massages (I was joined by my husband and girlfriend on this trip), enjoy the casino, have lunch, do some shopping at the District and head back to the strip for dinner reservations at Sinatra at Encore. You know what they say about the best laid plans! We arrived at Noon and went straight to the spa where we were WOWED. The washroom/change room is magnificent, as is the spa/hot tub in the change room and the showers. We tried everything out and then went into the co-ed spa where we could all chat together. This is one of the very few spas in Vegas that have a co-ed spa/hot tub. We all enjoyed our FABULOUS massage (hubbie) and facials (me and girlfriend) I was so relaxed when I was done. We then laid outside by the outdoor pool and had drinks. Then we were off shopping at the District. Managed to tour the shops very quickly to get the lay of the land while husband played poker. By the time we met up it was dinner and we enjoyed the buffet which I believe was $10 ea with player card. Now it was time to head back to the strip and we were no way ready to go back. So we went to the concierge and he volunteered to call the restaurant for us to cancel our reservation. We were so happy, had no time limits so we went off and explored the casino. We loved the machines and the friendly staff here. If you looked lost, someone was quick to point you in the right direction. We left there about 10:00 pm after being there for 10 hours. We took a taxi back which cost $40 to get back to the Venetian.
We could hardly wait to go back -- next time we will stay the night!
In Sept 2011 we returned, this time with 5 girlfriends and hubbie. We had room reservation this time and stayed in the East Tower. We found access to the pool and casino very easy from this tower. It was a nice quiet tower and we faced the mountains. The room was spectacular. Two Queen beds which were very comfy. Nice glass walk-in shower and deep tub with toilet in separate room (just like the Venetian & Palazzo). Unique feature of room is instead of a hanging a do not disturb sign you simply press a button inside the room by the door. This lights up outside near your doorbell (YES, a doorbell). You get free newspaper delivery (hanging on your doorknob) when you wake up in the morning. There is a coffee maker in the room - nice! And we could actually afford to take a beer from the bar fridge (less than the cost of a beer on the strip) and a snack.
We wanted to use the hot tub by the pool at night time but unfortunately the hot tub was undergoing maintenance. A disappointment to us as we were only spending the one night and wanted to get together as a group to enjoy.
We loved the spa yet again. Last year I had a facial which was to die for (massaged your neck, shoulders, legs, arms as well) This year my hubbie and I opted for the pedicures which are in a different building from the main spa. He said he would do agai.
We enjoyed the pool this time - spent 3 hours laying around enjoying our drinks and relaxing. Drink Service was great. Must mention though that in Sept -- the resort is quiet -- very few people. By the pool there were maybe another 8 people total. So guess drink service should be quick. Waitress was great! She even offered to take our group photo -- BIG Thank you for that!
Breakfast Buffet was great - we all enjoyed it and as a guest of the hotel you jump the line. For $5.99 all you can eat -- great bargain and great food.
Staff in all areas of this resort are helpful and friendly. Such a pleasure!
There is a free shuttle to and from the strip every four hours. Between Noon and 8:00 pm. Takes you to Mandalay Bay.
Casino has a great selection of machines. Love them all. I liked that I could sit outside one of the lounges and hear the music while playing my machine.
Should mention that as a guest of the hotel you have FREE access to the Spa (you pay resort fee for this). So you need not have a pedicure etc to enjoy the spa facilities. Also includes the gym.
We are going to return to this resort in 2012. In fact we already have a night booked for Dec 22, 2012. First time in Vegas at Christmas. We are spending this particular night to enjoy Michael Grimm at Ovation Lounge. $5 entrance -- cannot beat the price and have followed him since he won America's Got Talent. Can't wait to return. Too bad the hot tub won't be open outside - would def use. But we will enjoy the co-ed hit tub at the Spa.
Will write another review after our 2012 visit.
