AAA Editor Notes

Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino is at 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. S. (just s. of the Luxor Hotel and Casino). This 43-story resort has just wrapped up a major remodeling project, which has given guest rooms a modern redo. The property contains more than 3,200 rooms, 10 signature restaurants and numerous shops. This lush tropical oasis features an 11-acre lagoon complete with a sand-and-surf beach, whirlpools, three exotic pools, a lazy river ride, a wave pool, 100 cabanas and a beachside casino. The hotel's very impressive Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay has a swashbuckling adventure theme. Lush vegetation and walls of faux stone standing in for mysterious jungle temples form a backdrop for large tanks filled with piranhas, rays, ocean-dwelling schools of fish, colorful coral reef varieties and 15 different kinds of sharks. The 12,000-seat Mandalay Bay Events Center hosts top entertainment. A monorail links Mandalay Bay to the Excalibur Hotel, with a stop at the Luxor Hotel and Casino on the return trip. Food is available.
