Concerts Poolside Gaming


One of Las Vegas' most family-friendly pools, this 11-acre playground offers a wave pool, lazy river, four swimming pools, jogging track, and 2,700 tons of real sand. During the summer months it's also home to beach concerts, which feature bands performing on a stage that extends out into the wave pool. You can choose to watch from the water, or bring a blanket and sit on the sandy beach.

Directly on Mandalay Bay Beach and steps away from the waves, guest may enjoy the three-story, climate-controlled, glass-fronted Beachside Casino. On the first level of the club, beach-goers may dine at the open-air Beach Bar & Grill. The second floor features blackjack, roulette and craps. The third level contains five Sun Villas with views of the entire Mandalay Bay Beach. Ranging in size from 250 to 500 square feet, each villa accommodates up to 16 guests with cabana services and access to a private, third-level pool.

Beach concerts take place April through September on the Mandalay Bay Beach Stage, which rises over the sand and surf wave pool. Concert-goers are invited to bring their blankets, sit on the Beach, or wade in the surf and listen to the music from the cool confines of the 1.6 million gallon wavepool.

Note: This pool is open to hotel guests only, except during special events like the concert series. Cover varies according to event. The Beach Side Casino is open to everyone, with current hours Fri.-Sun., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. (subject to change).

Voted best pool area among all the hotels in Las Vegas by LVA readers.

Non guest access - SilverSurfer111 (09/24/2011)
Just a note to let you know that there doesn't seem to be any public access ( as shown on las vegas advisor), if you are not a hotel guest. We ended up having to pay us$70 (1 guy + 1 girl) to get into the 'adult' pool area, had no loungers and managed to get access to the wave pool from there.

LOVE THIS POOL!! - brianandliss (08/15/2010)
This pool is terrific! The wave pool is such fun, and the lazy river is way cool, too! We rented a cabana at the end of July mid-week in the West Lagoon area of the pool. It was $375, but when we booked our room via Mandalay Bay, they had a bunch of extras tacked on, one being $100.00 off cabana rental. I would highly recommend a cabana, especially if you plan on being out there all day. Of course, food and beer is pricey, but we just brought in the 24oz cans from the gift shop just inside the hotel from the pool area (MUCH cheaper). We did order food at the cabana, which was good, and service was great!

pool and cabanas - redskins3 (09/26/2008)
Best pool, best cabana service and best staff on the strip. Stayed over Labor Day and rented a cabana for the day. Fair price and exceptional, attentive service.

MBay pools - summergal (05/12/2008)
My long-time group (since first grade, and we are way past our 30's!) of girlfriends and I have stayed at the MBay 7 times over the last 8 summers, specifically for the pool area. We've checked out out the other hotels' pools and there is nothing that compares to the Mandalay the fact you don't have to traipse through some public areas in your swimsuit to reach the beach! We love the lazy river and almost always rent a cabana for one day. The Mandalay Bay is a fabulous hotel which just happens be be attached to a fantastic 11 acres of water!

Mandalay Bay's pool is huge, loads of fun, and an all-around great place to hang out at for the day. It also helps that they have a great restaurant right in the middle of the pool action.
