"Poolside at the Bay" Mandalay Bay Tip by Mambino

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas: 44 reviews and 84 photos


What’s better than nursing a hangover poolside? The Beach is great – the only hassle is that you’ve really got to motivate and get down there early enough to claim lounge chairs. They fill up very quickly and are essential to your pool time enjoyment. While you’re there, make sure to check out the lazy river off in the corner. Even after multiple stays at Mandalay Bay, I had no idea it was there. It’s a nice change of scenery from poolside and makes for a great break from the desert heat. If you can’t spot it, don’t be afraid to ask one of the servers to direct you.

Club Morrea. This is the “private” pool adjacent to the already epic beach/pool available to guests of the Mandalay Bay. The cost for entry is $25, and in my opinion, is worth every penny. It is a “topless optional” pool, and although I rarely mind seeing naked breasts in my line of vision, I would hardly say the topless aspect is its strongest feature. Sometimes it’s just nice to enjoy “Adult Swim” all day long. Your $25 goes toward a stylish and understated pool landscape. There are no children running around screaming for their parents and friends to come play with them. The area is much smaller, so it’s easier to either meet your fellow patrons, or catch a glimpse of whatever US Weekly regular who may have flown in from LA for the weekend.
