Had a good 2 days here. 1st off, if you are new to Vegas, prepare to get an education in how to save money. The strip, and Mandalay bay are set with one thing in mind.....business. So, with a few pieces of basic advice, you can save money and enjoy your trip.

For starters, Mandalay Bay has a HUGE resort fee that is not in this $99 per night deal you see. Count on about $150 per day for room and fees.

2nd, you don't have to stay at Mandalay Bay to use their pool. We ran into some people from the Luxor using it.

Next, the parking at Mandalay Bay is expensive. $15 per day, even if you are a guest. The Shoppes, (that is the name) next door has free, that is right free, valet parking. They also have a sign saying don't use it if you are staying at Mandalay Bay. This is your chance to read between my lines.

Which leads me to my next point. If you are doing anything in Vegas, the first stop is the players club desk. It is basically your chance to get a discount card to all the shops, valet, shows, restaurants...you name it.

Make sure you ask the right questions. The people working are just employees. They will can only say yes or no. So ask them....."How do I get a discount" and they will tell you. If you don't ask, you will pay full price.

The other thing to know is that the price of things varies by location...even in the same casino. The same food item at New York New York was $10 upstairs and $5 downstairs. Crazy.

Mandalay Bay has a new security policy where your room key will only take you to your floor....which is a problem if you have more than one person in your party staying on another floor. That was a huge pain for us.

Regarding the pool, you can use your own tube in the lazy river, provided it is a donut. Our kid cut himself pretty severely in the wave pool on the last day. Tile...slice....blood. The staff seemed pretty relaxed. Like that happens all the time. While we were there the wave pool shut down for 2 hours at least 3 times in 2 days. People crapping and throwing up. The normal public pool routine.

There were all sorts of unattended kids at the pool. About a 10:1 kid parent ratio. Don't let you kid run around splashing pool piss into someone's drink. It is just bad manners. It is your kid. Take care of them.

Finally, we ate at Hussongs in the Shoppes. It is a LOUD mexican joint with good food and prices. Probably the best value at Mandalay Bay. We also ate breakfast at House of Blues.....good value.

One of the other things we have noticed while visiting vegas over the last 2 or 3 trips is that no one is winning at the slots. You look around. A bunch of zombies loosing money. If they are charging you $15 to go to their house (self park) and spend money, imagine what they are doing with the slots. Ripping you off.

Mandalay Bay has everything you need all in one place. There is more than enough restaurants located inside the resort. The pool area is outstanding! There is a wave pool, a regular pool or even a topless pool (if that’s what you want). The casino has ample slot machines and many table games. When I go back, I will stay away from the buffet though. The food will make you sick. It’s literally awful. Everything else is great. The service, the location and the room were all great!

I am heavy sleeper, which I don't really hear anything when I sleep. However, when I was sleeping in Mandaly Bay, it wasn't great because noise were coming from everywhere: hallway, next room. I woke up several times. Moremore, next room was extremely loud I called security several time to calm them down

Not really impressed with the facility here, it was just okay. Previous visits to Vegas staying at the MGM Grand and the Wynn found much nicer, cleaner and better maintained facilities. Nothing here to really knock your socks off Vegas style, better venues to be had for sure. Bed was pretty comfy but the towels were super scratchy and low quality as was the soaps. Shower needed a cleaning for mildew and cracked bathroom tiles should have been replaced-had big missing pieces.
