I will start by saying that my friends and I had a great time. We pre-purchased a section online which was very easy to navigate. When we got there, we had more people than the table allowed for, and they figured out a way to accomodate us which was great. Also, the bathroom was beautiful and clean!

The bad news is that upon checking in, the guy in security tried to steal my wallet. He checked my small purse (THOROUGHLY). He thought I wasn't in my right mind, and didn't think I would check my bag before walking off, but I did. I told him multiple times that I couldn't find my wallet. He acted like he didn't hear me. Finally, I said I wasn't moving without my wallet. He pointed to it. They had put it into a basket off to the side. I was literally shook that he almost got away with it. I didn't make a stink about it because we were there for a special occassion, but BEWARE. If you do decide to go there, some of the workers are THIEVES. Keep your stuff secure, and do not take much with you at all.

We just visited this club last night, off the back of our hotel doing a paid trip there as a set group (700 pesos per person, transport there and open bar)

Originally we were really excited to head out to the centre and see the nightlife. The club itself is nice - little small for a dance floor but nothing too bad, the staff were friendly and helped us with getting drinks (as we had a free bar from 10pm-2am).

Within the next hour (11pm) the waiter came up to myself and began to tell me I need to tip him or I should tip him now for his service (an hour into the night, barely even sat down) I said I will later as we are planning to stay till late. Time goes by and he’s not only asked and demanded from myself, he’s asked my brother, my girlfriend (when she’s by herself) and my brothers girlfriend numerous times. Then proceeded to get the other female waitress to ask the girls.

It comes to the end of our free bar and we’re dancing and I see the waiter and waitress with two security guards standing over my brother and his girlfriend again (around 1:50am) - they’re telling us they take cards for tips and no coins just high value notes?? I go over and he’s demanding I tip him and i told him that it’s not how it works.
We weren’t planning to leave at that point as we enjoyed our night and met people there. But off that interaction alone and the whole process throughout the night we ended up really disliking it and told them we’re just going to leave and won’t have the last drinks we had from our free bar.

F.Y.I all of us are very much up for tipping and were going to at the end of our night as we were enjoying it. However when you’re continuously hounded by waiters telling you that you HAVE to pay them extra, you lose that sense of generosity very quickly.
Especially when they can’t remember your orders or you have to ask multiple times till it comes and then on top of that have them spill a table of drinks on your feet.

Came with a few friends, ended up paying $450 for two bottles that were kinda forced upon us. Even if we we’re okay woth paying that much, it’s not worth it. Club is below average. If you really want to check it out, pay the 20 pesos for cover and stay upstairs where the locals are.

Mandala night club was easy to get in with ID, they had security we felt very safe, it was really clean and pretty and awesome music. It was indoor-outdoor which was nice. At 10 pm it was pretty empty but by 12:30 pm it was pretty packed. The drinks were expensive.

This is a tourist trap and they will try to scam you. They tried to charge us for a USD150 bottle of tequila that we did not order. When we said we did not want nor order the bottle and tried to leave, the security blocked us and forced us to pay for the bottle.

Used to visit this place every now and then when in town and it used to be fine, but my last two visits along with the experiences of some friends here have definitely made it a RED FLAG. The staff has shown to be completely INCOMPETENT, RACIST and RUDE, mostly “security” and managers, who are starving for a dollar. Don’t be fooled, they aren’t interested in making you have a good experience, as all they care about is taking advantage of you to make some extra cash. By checking out other reviews, I am not surprised there are many many other terrible experiences here, which should be alarming in and of itself. If you decide to ignore all these warnings and still want to check the place out, be EXTREMELY CAREFUL with your personal belongings (phone, wallet, credit cards), as these are frequently targeted items. Recently heard the place just reopened in the middle of a pandemic and without proper safety measures, just goes to show you the lack of quality and the greediness of this place and the people who run it, no regard for human health and safety whatsoever❗️❗️❗️Please DO NOT spend your time and your money here, AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️

Saturday night we are on the dance floor and my phone was in my top. I always put it there and was wearing a tight top with no room for it to have wiggled out. So I just put it back in my tit, the fog went crazy. Few seconds later I was bumped in the shoulder. Didn't think anything of it at the time because it was by someone who worked there, same song is playing & I reach for my phone to take a photo, thinking maybe they will do the fog again, and its gone. .
.
Me being the person who likes to believe people around you are also just there for a good time, looked around, asked everyone around me if they saw it, didn't even consider that I was pickpocketed from my tit pocket. I thought it was the safest pocket but apparently it's not. .
.
How do I know it was an employee and not a patron? Not one single patron ran into me from the front, only the waiter. It wasn't that crowded. Normally I bump into all sorts of people but not that night. We actually had room to dance. .
.
I was in contact with the people we went to the club with and they passed my phone number along to people at the club. This morning I get a call from a girl who says she has it. She said things that made it known she was there watching me. The person who ran into me was a man and she said she got the phone from a man. Sounds like teamwork to me. I played along with attempting to make arrangements to get it back but the girl thinks I'm going to electronically transfer her money to fedex it to me. She won't send me a photo of the phone, won't set up an in person meet to get it either. I know whats going on with that. You cant have my phone and my money. I've already reported it stolen and ordered a replacement.

The club was informed of the situation and has done nothing to find the employee

Very concerned for making and keeping a copy of my Driver License and credit cards ... Mexico is well known for cloning credit cards so next time you stop by make sure to pay CASH ONLY.

Don’t waste your time here. Go to the club beside called The Zoo. Better people, music and better service.

I been there several times. Usually we been there around 11:00, it opens until 5:00 am. Going inside very easy without any line. Staff are friendly and music is excellent. Music is combining of Latin and English songs. Always I have a lot of fun there and dancing whole night. It is a wonderful nightclub at PV.
