Being one of the premium resorts in LV, and for the price/ night - they don’t even provide a coffee machine or microwave. American Greed at its best ! The cleaning service on the 3rd day was baffling ! Clearly he did nothing else but just so the bed. All the trash was still as-is. Bathrooms were not cleaned ! Seriously? Need I say more ?
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.…
This was my first stay at this property and it left me disappointed. I stayed in on of the Resort King Strip View rooms on the 23rd floor. MGM will nickle and dime you on everything, from the high daily resort fee, in-room services, mini bar, and snack trays. Housekeeping didn't bother to clean the bathroom floors, which forced me to put down towels to avoid stepping on someone else's mess.
A excellent resort to stay while visiting Las Vegas. They have everything you need so that you don’t have to leave the resort unless you show tickets at another location. They are attached to a shopping mall, they have restaurants, and of course a casino.
Charged $44/day (over five days) for a "resort fee" - which was not visible in my company's travel portal. The fee is for internet access, local and toll free calling???, airline boarding pass printing, notary services???, and fitness center access (which is not a huge place and I didn't use anyway).
Very old rooms, no sunlight. Almost at the end of the strip which makes it hard for commuting & exploring strip. Bathroom had water leakage & commode flush was barely operating. Overall, not a great place to stay.
Used to be such a great hotel, but now things are broken and haven’t been maintained, not as clean as it used to be…. Can’t believe they tried to charge me $28 when I asked for some boiling water, no thanks
Stayed in a 2 bedroom panoramic view suite and loved everything from check in to check out. Casino is open and spacious and not cramped...huge plus! Stqff are super friendly and helpful. Lounge was nice and penthouse lounge and staff were amazing!
This place is awesome and perfect in every way possible. Only disappointment was the price for a water bottle in the room's mini-bar, 25$ is outrageous for average people like me (not sure about rich people though)...
Mandalay Bay staffs are very friendly wherever we go. The variety of restaurants to choose from is great and they also have a food court and great entertainment for kids. The room was very clean when we stayed.
