    We loved our stay at Mandabay as we affectionately refer to it. I read some really tough reviews about the pool fiasco during spring break this year but we went in mid April and did not experience any of that, especially during the week. We picked Mandabay for the pool, cause I googled best pool in Vegas and it was number 1. The staff is very friendly, attentive and well trained. Some restaurants, shows and attractions are closed or limited due to COVID which definitely detracts from the overall stay. Also, the mask mandate is heavily enforced by everyone in Vegas so that is kinda a pain. We still had a blast. Loved the view from Mandabay. My wife and I turned our room chairs around so they faced out the window and we drank cold barley pops while we watched planes come and go. So relaxing. Loved, loved the memory foam mattress. Slept like a rock and now I have to buy one. We especially enjoyed the food at the Border Grill and the Ri Ra Irish Pub. Breakfast special at the House of Blues was a good value. We are not gamblers, but the casino wasn't too overly smoky like some of the other casinos we visited on Freemont Street. Live music can be found on weekends but during the week non existent. Only downside is the location is at the far south end of the strip so if you want to go anywere else you are gonna hike for awhile or cab it. Not much is close to the Mandabay aside from the airport. Mirage volcano only blows up on weekends. Bellagio fountains every night. My point is that during COVID season, entertainment and dining options are scaled back. Still really glad we went. Would stay at the Mandabay again, but probably not return to Vegas until the mask mandate is lifted. Most of the locals said that big changes are coming June 1st. Hope so.

    Unfortunate to write a bad review for a place we have stayed so may times in the past but its just become a hassle. We try to stay at Mandalay at least once a year but probably won't be back for awhile if ever. we stayed the second week Mandalay opened up from Covid lockdowns and went to Delano pool several days. The mask restrictions were intense but we could kind of understand as they didn't want any heat from the state. This week we returned and the staff was better but we were constantly told something by a different person and we were doing everything they said to do. Hard to relax with staff telling you something different every 10 minutes. We decided to leave when my wife and I went to the pool as we understood that if you were in the pool you didn't have to have a mask on or drinking. We chose a section of pool where there wasn't another person within at least 20ft and we had our drinks. We were sitting with out legs the pool and a member of the staff rudely demanded that we put on a mask. We said we are in the pool and We were drinking from our beverages. She said we have to be "waist deep" in the water. She was very rude about it and seemed a bit obtuse as we weren't anywhere near another person other than her who came to us. She could have been more tactful and these arbitrary rules are a bit ridiculous being that entire states are opened up and showing dropping numbers. Also, not a prude but, the hallways smell so strong of weed. All the time, every time

    This has always been my favorite place to stay when in Vegas (don't tell Delano). :) The rooms are clean and updated, the staff is friendly and the other guests are easy to be around and get along with.

    Loved this hotel, pool, staff, and restaurants. Do t need to leave the hotel if you don’t need to. Enjoyed everything about our stay and won good money too. Citizen and house of blues has great food and of course the beach pool was nice especially since we rented a beach daybed.
