Noted to be the south most hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, Mandalay Bay Hotel has its own style and charm. As with any casino + hotel + resort, this place aims for you not to leave the compound and enjoy all its offering. Of course with accessibility, this would lead to a significant price tag. A week or so ago, I was able to stay in this resort and enjoy its offerings. Here's a little bit of room tour/experience.

Mandalay Bay is an MGM property. As such, it offers a STAY WELL version of their room. This means that your room has some upgrades that would make your visit a cleaner and more relaxed stay. Mandalay is a little bit of an upgrade from MGM Grand in terms of rooms. The MGM is more accessible while the Mandalay tends to be a family oriented place to visit. With the wave pool and shark reef aquarium, it targets family visits. 

Well enough of that. My friends and I checked into our respective rooms. There was a little hickup with their reservations. Thankfully, it got fixed. They weren't charged for their upgrade but it was a little bit of a hassle as we got in late and tired. I was upgraded to their floor without me asking. I did leave a tip for the front desk for her service.  The room in itself is quite normal except for the "stay well" features.


The features include an air purifier, diffuser, and even a vitamin c water purifier for your shower area.  Since we brought bbq for dinner in my room, it was notable that the smell didn't linger. I guess the purifier did work it's charm.

Washroom wise, the toilet was separated by a door. The shower was on a corner and not with the tub. Unfrotunately, there was no television in there.



  The bar was fully stocked but you should already know that it would cost you an arm and a leg for these items. Thankfully, ice was still free. Better to just pack your luggage with drinks and snack from the local grocery to save some dollars.

The view though was pretty good. It's not to lit up that you might have a hard time sleeping.
The pool is another reason to stay here. If you're staying at the Mandalay Bay you have access to the Beach. It's a collection of pools. A lazy river, a heated wave pool with sand, and a couple of normal pool. If you're staying at the Delano or the Four Season, you have access to private pools just for their guests.
The place opens up at 9am and closes at 6pm. There's a lot of seats that you could go for since it's 100%capacity already. Some though are by reservation. You have to pay for the cabanas and some of the premium seats. Towels are free of course. A few minutes before 9am though, a line could be seen forming. You just need to show your hotel room key card for you to gain entry.
There are of course food and drinks available. There are wait staff that roam around. You could also go to the stalls themselves.

VEGAS IS DEFINITELY OPEN. There are a lot of visitors that roam the strip. Hotels and restaurants are ramping up their employment drive because of the demand. There are now a lot of places that are opening up as well. 
Mandalay Bay Hotel is one of them. The place is relaxed although the casino isn't as complete as other places. It's a definitely a must try to visit but honestly, I might go for something else next time.
