U.S. News Review

Perched at the south end of the Strip, Mandalay Bay offers a great view of bustling Sin City. And when you want to explore Las Vegas further, there's a monorail system that will take you to other casinos nearby. Recent travelers give Mandalay Bay mixed reviews, though; some complain that there are too many kids at the pool and man-made beach (it's known as one of the most family-friendly hotels in town) while others describe a relaxing ambiance at the poolside cabanas. Rooms at the upscale Mandalay Bay feature spa tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and his and hers closets. If you're really hankering for a quieter atmosphere, you can book a room upstairs at the Four Seasons, which occupies the Mandalay Bay Tower's top five floors.

Critic Reviews


“Mandalay itself is decked out like a South Seas beach resort, complete with the scent of coconut oil drifting through the casino and pagodas rising out of the vast casino floor.”


“Reservations at many of the nearly two dozen restaurants in Mandalay Bay are among the most sought after in town.”
