Mandalay Bay Resort is a staple on Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas locals and tourists alike flock to Mandalay Bay for great live shows, comfortable accommodations, and most importantly, the Mandalay Bay pool complex!

If you’re looking for some aquatic fun while you’re in Las Vegas, you’ve come to the right place! Here are the highlights of one of the best pools in Las Vegas. 

Lazy River

If you want a break from the fast-paced Las Vegas life, a quarter-mile-long heated lazy river is as good as it gets. This is consistently named the best lazy river in Las Vegas. You’ll understand the hype when you try it for yourself!

Inner tubes are available to purchase at the Mandalay Bay Pool area, or guests can bring their own inner tubes. All inner tubes have to be 48” or less in diameter with an unobstructed path through the tube. 

Family-friendly cabanas are available to rent with a great view of the lazy river. Cabanas include an LED TV, ceiling fan, dining table, and a refrigerator stocked with drinks. Cabana guests can enjoy easy access to the lazy river whenever they get the urge to go for a dip.
