Catch a wave at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Think we're kidding? We're not.This gargantuan hotel that gleams of gold at the southernmost tip of the Las Vegas Strip is home to Mandalay Beach. It's an 11-acre aquatic paradise smack dab in the middle of the desert. In addition to three large pools, a lazy river (with a current that runs at 3 mph) and 2,700 tons of white sand, there's a 1.6-million-gallon wave pool where the surf's always up. So you can grab a bodyboard and, as we said, catch a wave at one of Vegas' most popular hotel pools.Around Mandalay Beach, you'll discover some adult-oriented fun. The three-story Beachside Casino is positioned, like its names suggests, beachside. Concerts are held on a huge outdoor stage above the wave pool. And then there's Moorea Beach Club. Its sexy setting makes you feel like you're on a French Polynesian island, and this dayclub allows topless sunbathing (so men, behave yourselves). Plus, there are "opium beds" and tricked-out villas for lounging around, as well as an infinity-edge hot tub that can fit a crowd.Also embracing the ocean vibe is Shark Reef Aquarium. Now this isn't your typical aquarium. It's filled with 15 different species of sharks and other marine predators. Imagine "Sharknado," except in here the sharks are swimming safely inside their tanks instead of flying through the air and raining down around you.You can always dive into a tidal wave of fun at Mandalay Bay because there's just so much to do. Concerts and major sporting matchups are regularly featured in the Mandalay Bay Events Center. And when it comes to entertainment, "Michael Jackson ONE," created by Cirque du Soleil, is a tribute to the King of Pop that fans will cherish and even non-fans will get swept up in. Combining original master recordings with high-flying acrobatics and eye-popping props, Jackson's life and music are presented onstage in a truly inspirational way. (A sequined glove will never seem the same to you after you've seen this show.)When it comes to music, you can rock out in several places at Mandalay Bay -- such as the House of Blues and the Foundation Room, which sits atop the resort on the 63rd floor and has a view of the Strip you're sure to recognize...because it's printed on all of the postcards in the gift shop.Over at Eyecandy Sound Lounge & Bar, you'll not only enjoy listening to good music, but thanks to the interactive touch tables you'll be able to send songs to the DJ. (These touch tables do other cool things, but they're too high-tech to explain here.)And if you want to party, well, Light Nightclub truly shines. It's another ridiculously amazing creation from Cirque du Soleil. You'll find the usual awesome club stuff in it -- big screens, a state-of-the-art sound system and dazzling lighting, but there are also special areas set up for performers to show off. So, while you're dancing, keep an eye out for the odd acrobat or contortionist overhead. By the way, manning the turntables at Light is a roster of superstar DJs including Alesso, Baauer, Nicky Romero and Skrillex -- more proof of just how brilliant this place is.If you get hungry, watch out. Waves of wonderful restaurants are ready to wash over you, one after the next, at Mandalay Bay. Seriously, there are more eateries than you can count on your hands and feet and...you get the picture. They offer everything from gourmet dining to quick munchies.One of the standouts is chef Charlie Palmer's Aureole, which features a spectacular four-story wine tower attended to by "wine angels." Dressed in sexy black jumpsuits, they fly around on a high-tech suspension system fetching bottles. (You probably have to see them to understand this.)Savor exquisite creations at Fleur by Hubert Keller and Stripsteak, where chef Michael Mina uses only sustainable foods like all-natural meat and line-caught seafood. Thought Russian cuisine was all borscht and pickles? Red Square will prove you wrong. Eat a laid-back meal al fresco at Border Grill, which serves Mexican dishes with a modern twist by chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. Or grab a fast bite at the Bayside Buffet, Citizens Kitchen and Bar, Mizuya, The Noodle Shop and Raffles Café.Wait...there's still more. We haven't told you about The Shoppes at Mandalay Place yet. As if Mandalay Bay didn't have enough to offer already, a skybridge was built between it and Luxor adding 40 more fabulous stores, restaurants and bars.Behind a hidden door near the escalator to this retail complex, you'll uncover 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque by Holly Madison -- perfect for an illicit night of drinking and debauchery. Rick Moonen's RM Seafood and steampunk-inspired RX Boiler Room are also here. If you're a pizza, burger or nacho lover, you'll hit upon heaven at Slice of Vegas, Burger Bar and Hussong's Cantina. Besides these, there's Rí Rá Las Vegas, an authentic Irish pub (get this, almost everything inside it -- including the 500-pound statue of St. Patrick -- came directly from Ireland), and Minus5° Ice Bar, where you can say goodbye to your summer sweat stains in a room made completely of ice.Rounding out Mandalay Bay's wealth of amenities are Spa Mandalay, a large casino and sports book...actually, forget it. There are so many things at Mandalay Bay still to mention (including Delano Las Vegas, another entire hotel) this description will never end.Suffice to say, you could stay at Mandalay Bay for a week -- without ever setting foot off the property -- and every day will be filled with new experiences from sea to shining façade (okay, that's a bit corny).

Overall experience was ok...not out of this world.
PostedJuly 7, 2013
Loved the hotel...Mandalay Bay is a great hotel with wonderful customer service and customer satisfaction. They have great pools but hard to locate seating, as they seem always packed. We checked in on a Tuesday and were there through 4th of July. However, I was not happy with our room location which faced the rooftops and the highway, away from the Strip which I had hoped to get especially because I traveled with my 9 yr old. I also was not happy with the $25 dollar resort fee plus tax per day you MUST pay on top of of all your charges for the room. With my reservation I received a complimentary breakfast for two which I was charged and at the time of checkout I was told I'd only receive the amount charged reimbursed but NOT the tax...what? I had to speak w/a Manager to get that reimbursed as well. My overall experience was ok...would I stay there again? Maybe...it would take some persuasion.

If you stay at the Luxor hotel you'll always easily be able to find your way back to it no matter how directionally-challenged you are. Not only is its distinctive pyramid shape one of the most recognizable landmarks in Las Vegas, all you have to do is look for the world’s strongest light beam shooting up into the sky from the top. It's so bright that on a clear night, it's visible up to 275 miles away by airplanes at cruising altitude.When the Luxor opened in 1993, it proudly touted an Egyptian theme with things like a Nile River ride and a replica of King Tut's tomb. Today, you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside, but Luxor has traded most of its Egyptian roots for a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Luxor is one of the most unique places to stay in Las Vegas. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed inside the pyramid and two 22-story towers. If you're staying in the pyramid, check out the Luxor's version of a thrill ride. You'll have to reach your room by "inclinator," an elevator that travels along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. We're willing to bet you’ve never had an elevator ride like this before.There are plenty of ways to get your party on at Luxor. Start out at Flight, a bar with cocktails, beers and inexpensive shots. It's a great pre-game before clubbing at LAX, a two-story nightspot for the hip-hop and Top 40 crowd. If you want something a little more laid back, the lobby bar, Aurora, is open 24 hours and serves contemporary cocktails. Just look for the cool lighting effects on the ceiling that mimic the Northern Lights.Luxor has dining options that will satisfy just about every taste. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and a rock 'n' roll atmosphere. Our advice: stop in on Sundays for the Mariachi Brunch and kick that hangover with specially priced margaritas and bloody Marias. Those with gourmet tastes will enjoy a good steak or fresh seafood at Tender. On the go or traveling with kids who are picky? There’s also a food court with fast food favorites.There's enough entertainment and attractions at Luxor to keep everyone happy. Guys will love the sexy ladies of "Fantasy" and hilarious prop comedian Carrot Top cracks everyone up. Your teenager will dig the hot urban dance crew Jabbawockeez, who perform in the show "PRiSM.” And magic lovers will be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this show filled with illusions.Guests of all ages will want to explore Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs. Sounds like it could be a bit gruesome, but it's actually really fascinating. "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and some eerie re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Plus there is a 15-ton piece of the ship's hull (the largest piece ever raised from the wreck) on display. Guests at Luxor can also easily take advantage of amenities at either Mandalay Bay or Excalibur next door. Mandalay Bay and Luxor are connected by The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, which houses unique shops and restaurants. A free tram also provides easy access between all three hotels.There are dozens of ways to stay busy at Luxor but maybe your vacation is all about relaxing. They've totally got that covered too. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. There's also a spa where you can be pampered with an array of treatments.

Love the hotel and it's service..
PostedJuly 6, 2012
We checked in and immediately asked for a room that wasn't high up so I wouldn't have to ride their inclinator which makes me so ill the higher it goes. The agent was very accommodating and put us in a room that was on the 3rd floor and promised us a great view of the pool especially for my 8 yr old however, when we got to the room our view was the rooftop w/air conditioning equipment...we were SO bummed. I called as soon as I got to the room but we had to wait till the next day to be changed, which they did without a problem. The pool was great too but they tend to close one of the pools on the far end and make up stories such as a "someone dropped glass in the pool" making the ones open very crowded... The one thing I disliked a LOT is that their Valet Parking isn't covered leaving your car parked in 110+ degree weather, other than that our stay was great.
