very nice swimming complex. Super packed on the weekends and after 11 am. Not open at night. Free if you are staying at Mandalay Bay or Delano, but the prices for the floaties are outrageous, pack a few inflatable inner tubes from the dollar store...More

Crowded, shabby, and dirty, why would anyone want to wade or swim in a grease trap! People pay a small fortune for pool side cabanas, why? The entire experience was gross! Not recommended.

What a strange place...they advertise it as a free beach/pool area, but almost everything there has a price associated with it. In addition, there are almost as many lifeguards as guests who seem to be there just to enforce where you can sit or stand....More

Visit Mandalay beach every vacation and it is absolutely the best beach/pool on the strip! A must visit for anyone. On separate note staff was fantastic during the mass shooting!

We spent two afternoons enjoying the pools and lazy river. Overall, we had a really good time. Skip the wave pool -- hardly any waves and they are very strict on where you can stand in the pool. The staff could be friendlier and they...More

We chose the Mandalay Bay as many people had recommended their wave and lazy river pools for our kids. Despite the room costings hundreds of dollars a night, very little value-add was offered to guests. Shade had to be purchased at an absolute premium, along...More

This is by far the best pool on the strip. It has a lazy river, wave pool, several other small pool additions. The sand on the beach make for an amazing way to lay out and enjoy the sun

As a local, we've been to many pools on the strip. I like Mandalay Bay beach best. We've rented cabana's twice and both times it's been a great experience. Unlike many pools on the strip, you can enjoy it without all the partying drama nonsense....More

Stayed at a few hotels in Vegas and this is my favorite pool area. You have a beach in the middle of a desert, with a casino right inside. What more can you ask for.
