Sail away to the Caribbean in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Treasure Island (also known by its hipper initials as "the TI") is something of a tropical island getaway -- and it's set along a beautiful manmade cove.You can celebrate the spirit of the high seas as well as the legacy of pirates here. The décor is reminiscent of the lively markets of colonial times. Instead of a snooze on a hammock, guests rest their weary heads on the resort's exclusive Elite Sensational pillow-top beds in the 2,885 rooms and suites, all are which are outfitted with modern-day amenities.Like the tropics, lazy days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub!) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Calypso calamari, or get an island-infused drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you will discover several rollicking bars, restaurants and shops. Things often get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. There are multiple bars within a hangar-like atmosphere. Patrons can drink, watch bikini bull riding contests, dance and listen to live bands. The restaurant, which specializes in barbecue cooking, runs along the front of Treasure Island and sports glass windows looking onto the Strip.Infamous in Mexico for its party scene -- and now at Treasure Island -- is Señor Frog's. Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...but there's an outside balcony for those who just want to chill out, too..For more traditionally staged entertainment, get tickets to "Mystère" -- which is anything but traditional. This imaginative production is packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility. "Mystère" is the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.Several bars are spread throughout the premises including the upscale Breeze Bar and the outdoor Margarita Bar. Need a quick bite? Choose from a variety of fast-served favorites, such as slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's, delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs or pastries and coffee at Starbucks. The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two more wonderful options for speedy, cooked meals morning, noon or night.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steakhouse. Fennel-crusted halibut, spinach and ricotta-stuffed free-range chicken breast  and other American fare with Italian twists are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon is a place that offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, the menu boasts an array of relaxing and revitalizing treatments from around the world, like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.Interested in shopping? You'll find something for everyone -- from jewelry and souvenirs to perfume and apparel. Don't miss the unique items sold at the Couture, TI Bling Co. and Adixion stores. A pedestrian bridge leading to the Fashion Show mall, one of the city's most prestigious shopping venues, is also just steps away. Plus, construction has started on a new three-story, 40,000-square-foot retail center on the northeast corner of the property opposite the Fashion Show Mall. The new retail center is scheduled to open in fall 2014.Perfect for swashbucklers and buccaneers -- or anyone interested in a fun and affordable Vegas visit -- Treasure Island has so many entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming options, along with plush accommodations, you'll think it's all been pillaged and plundered!

Enjoyable stay
PostedJune 25, 2012
My stay at Treasure Island was enjoyable. The room was neet and clean, the hotel staff was nice and helpful. The hotel had all the amenties on site so there was not a real reason to go any other hotel just for only a change of scenery. The only thing wrong with the room was that the refrigerator was old, didnt work all that well and didn;t look all that clear. I didn't like the resort fees. I paid over 100 dollars and didn't use any of the things assocatied with the resort fees.

Discover the days of yore on your Vegas vacation. The Excalibur endeavors to re-create the Middle Ages, a time filled with adventure and enchantment. Centrally located amid all the action at the southern end of the Strip, the storybook-like fortress boasts a drawbridge and moat. Other medieval touches can be spotted throughout the architecture and décor, such as turreted towers, stone columns, wood paneling and candle chandeliers.The Excalibur is perfect for families because they can let their young ones act like knights and fair ladies. The Fun Dungeon is among the themed activities. It's packed with carnival-style games. The expansive pool area has a thrilling waterslide -- as well as 17 decked-out cabanas for parents. After dark, everyone can attend the "Tournament of Kings," where they'll experience the gallantry and equestrian feats from one of the tales about King Arthur. The arena is spectacular, and in addition to cheering on your knight, there is a three-course dinner to be eaten with your fingers.Opened in 1990, the castle has undergone extensive "modernization" to appeal to singles and mature travelers without kids. Additional entertainment offerings are definitely geared toward grown-ups. Women will go crazy for the hot Thunder from Down Under troupe (the men strip off nearly everything onstage!). Plus, disco aficionados will revel in the rich vocal harmonies at "The Australian Bee Gees Show."Only a fabled resort can bring you dining beyond the ordinary. For gourmet fare, the Excalibur features The Steakhouse at Camelot. A Zagat Award winner, this steakhouse prepares fine cuts of beef, fresh seafood and decadent desserts. Enjoy Old World hospitality and family-style service at the beloved Italian restaurant chain Buca di Beppo. Johnny Rockets serves favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner including hamburgers, fries and premium ice cream shakes. Or grab quick, casual meals in the Castle Walk Food Court. Extremely large at 25,000 square feet, it's home to Schlotzsky's, Cinnabon, Hot Dog on a Stick, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Pick Up Stix, Tropical Smoothie Café, Auntie Anne's Soft Rolled Pretzels, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Popcornopolis. (Note: The bountiful Excalibur Buffet is closed for remodeling but will reopen in January 2015.)The over-21 crowd will have a blast at Dick's Last Resort. It's perfect for nightlife-loving visitors. The bar and stage in there are always rocking, and when guests get hungry they can turn to a menu of pub grub complete with Macho Nachos, Mumbo Jumbo Chicky Wings and the Big Ass Burger. Or spend a high-energy night in the Octane Lounge, a classic rock bar with a display of custom-designed motorcycles. Among the signature drinks are the Blood, Sweat & Gears Cosmo and the High Octane Kiss, served by bartenders dressed in black leather.The resort's casino floor has also assumed a party-like vibe. On the weekends an area dubbed "The Party Pit" features table games set near a stage topped with scantily clad dancing girls. And the 12-table poker room hosts a sexy "Strip Poker Tournament" on Saturday nights, where guests can watch a lovely lady remove items of her clothing on losing hands. The Lounge, also located on the casino floor, features Miami all-girl band Dollface who perform a variety of music styles from pop to punk.Staying at the Excalibur is not about roughing it. Most of the rooms have been renovated and offer a contemporary take on castle-themed accommodations. The widescreen rooms come with granite countertops, 42-inch plasma TVs, pillow-top mattresses and iPod-compatible clock radios. Even the standard rooms are very comfortable with wood furnishings, cable TVs and hair dryers.Need a bit of pampering? Everyone can be a king or queen for the day at The Spa at Excalibur. Overlooking the pool area, it provides a selection of massages, facials, scrubs and wraps and uses Aveda products exclusively in its treatments.And romance never goes out-of-date at the Excalibur. The Canterbury Wedding Chapel is cherished by couples who wish to celebrate their big day traditionally or in medieval attire.If your family or friends are looking to get away from it all, the Excalibur promises endless activity for all ages -- while still being a child-friendly haven. With an ideal location on the Strip as well as a tram that connects it to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay, the Excalibur is a good-quality, value-oriented resort. In fact, if a trip to the real castles of England is out of your price range, then a visit here will more than suffice.
