- What's Included
My wife and I just returned from a 3-night stay at the Mandalay Bay. For those who don’t know, the Mandalay Bay is situated on the end of the strip, very close to the airport. They have a free tram which does to the Luxor and the Excalibur, which gets you closer to the other casino resorts. It was my first time here and I was curious to see how they were doing after the tragedy last month. I was given a King-classic suite, on the 34th floor The suite was nice, with a small living-room area facing the strip. It was not as big as some suites I’ve seen in other places. A small tv-in the mirror in the bathroom was a nice touch. You can’t use the fridge because it was full with drinks that you had to buy if you touched them. Everything in the room worked great, including the AC and the cable tv. They have security checking room keys for all rooms. I understand that this is new, since the shooting. Overall, I was happy with the room. The Mandalay Bay has a huge area for conferences and there was a conference there this week with over 2000 participants. Plenty of room for weddings and events. In the same area is the Shark Reef exhibit. There were many smaller sized sharks and large stingrays (which you could touch). There were also hotel guests who were swimming with the sharks w/protective gear on (obviously for an additional charge). The general area was 25.00 and I’d say the exhibit was worth the price for that city. They also have a food court in the same area as a change of pace from the higher priced restaurants (Johnny Rockets, Nathans, Subway and a pizza place (NY Pizza- what else)). The casino is not as large as some others (Bellagio, MGM) but bigger than ones such as Planet Hollywood or the Cosmopolitan. It is shaped like a square and is easy to navigate. The casino was empty the first night I was there but more crowded the 2nd and 3rd (Wed. & Thurs). Still, there was plenty of room to sit down at tables and play and plenty of empty slot machines. I loved the idea of mostly $10.00 tables, even at night, instead of $15.00 like some other places. I play at the Borgata in NJ, and they have only 25.00 tables for blackjack at night and I won’t play. So a casino will end up getting more people to play if the tables are less of a minimum. I was a little disappointed with the amount of poker players there. I am a poker player and the first night, they only had two cash tables open at prime time of 10:00 PM (about 18-20 players) and those tables were full and I ended up playing in a small tournament. During the day, there were no cash tables that were active, none …until about 6:00 or 7:00 PM. The next two nights, I was happy that they had about four cash tables going and I was able to play. The staff in the poker room was super attentive and always trying to help. All the dealers that I came in contact with were friendly and courteous. The waitresses as well. I don’t think this casino will eve get as crowded as some of the other (Bellagio, Venetian, MGM). That could be bad for management but it’s good for the player who doesn’t need the hassle of too many people and not enough room to play. I wanted to see the Michael Jackson - Cirque DuSoeil show but was disappointed to see that they were blacked-out on Wednesday and Thursday. Maybe nest trip. They had a band playing in one of the clubs in the casino and they were excellent, loud but excellent. They also had a guy singing Frank Sinatra and similar italian songs in once of the lounges and he was very good. The hotel has many, many choices to eat. All are expensive, but that’s expected in a Vegas resort. I ate breakfast in the buffet two mornings and it was excellent. The buffet is about 18:00 p/p for breakfast. Had dinner in the noodle place once and the service was a little slow and they also close way too early for a casino in vegas. But there were plenty of places I could have gone to and just chose not to. One of the attractions of the Mandalay Bay is the pool area. It had just closed when I was there (mid-November) but it has a lazy river, a wave pool and the sandy beach area. The Beach Club was open though, with a nice pool and comfortable lounge chairs (21 and older for this area). The parking turned out to be a disaster, although the staff tried they’re best to make it better. The resort has free self-parking if you are an M-rewards member at a certain level. I happened to get an upgrade while I was there. While my new card worked fine in the casino, it did not work at the payment machines in the parking lot. So every time I left the lot, which was a few times, I had to call the hotel, explain that my card didn’t work, and give all my info before they would open the gate to let me out. This happened every time. They even had a parking attendant standing there most of the time because, evidently, there are so many people who have this problem. The staff understood the problem and did a great job to get around it….but it’s still a big problem nonetheless. By the way, this happens in all the M-rewards casinos. There are about 10 of them. Also for you slot players out there, if you have free-slot-play at the machines, you must put some cash into the machine. Otherwise, your free slot play won’t work. I believe this is in Vegas only. Even though there were a couple of negatives, perhaps I’m being a little picky and I would definitely return to this resort.
Beautiful Hotel. Rooms were very comfortable, pool area very nice with multiple pools and spas. Great access to end of strip properties with walkway connections to Luxor through to Excalibur, ew York New York Monte Carlo etc. walkway easy to access other side of blvd. nice restaurant access to Luxor restaurants as well as Mandalay Bay. Store selection not as strong as other end of strip shops. Fast check in\out. Easy uber pickup area, great service we received throughout.rooms not large but well maintained and had everything needed. Will definately return. Totally different experience than recent trips on other end of strip
Mandalay bay is a very nice resort at the end if the strip in Vegas. The rooms are spacious and feel very luxurious. The casino floor is pretty big and there are a whole lot of signature restaurants, including a fantastic steakhouse (StripStake) and a high end Japanese (Kumi) one.The hotel has all the ingredients but the thing us that it is at the end of the strip quite distant from the rest of “the party”. I feel it therefore is never very crowded, it seems a bit empty even but that’s probably also because it is so big and because people won’t walk over to it easily from the Strip.There is a massive convention center attached to the hotel. If a show is ongoing there, than the hotel feels busy but it feels different with people all wearing badges 😬.( I visited as a trade show attendee myself )From within the Mandalay you can walk to the connected Delano hotel and visit Skyfall, a high floor bar with a fantastic view on the strip, definitely go there for a cocktail with a view.The mandalay pool is fantastic in summer (been there😀 ) - with a lot of hangouts and cabanas but is obviously closed of season.So if you like luxury and great facilities and don’t mind being a bit “disconnected” from the Strip buzz, the Mandalay bay could be your pick.
We visited Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino for our anniversary. We had a great room with a beautiful view of the Strip. Staff from the check-in process, house keeping, bellhops, concierge service was wonderful. I highly would recommend this resort.
Just days after the tragedy, the Hotel, Casino, Restaurants and Clubs were back to operational excellence. Got into Billy Idol's show and the crowd packing the House of Blues was ready to put it all behind. The Staff, from the doorman, to the casino host and hostesses were on their toes and ready to please. Excellent service and attention throughout the realm. No one I saw missed a beat all and expressed genuine happiness that we were there.
