Just wondering how far mandalays regular pool area is from "the hotel" and if in general it is a LONG walk to everything? (the buffet, pool, casino). The regular suites at "THE" hotel look gorgeous... but are they worth it for us late 40 somethings to get the nice room and then have to walk 4EVER to anything in the Mandalay Bay area:confused2: We have a great rate , otherwise i would just get an upgraded room in mandalay bay tower...we have stayed there many times and the rooms are looking dated already, thought we'd try "THE" hotel this time. We like the mandalay pool, and dont care about the "club" atmosphere in the other pool areas.... just a nice "quiet" pool and a cool drink! ( I know, ... in Vegas, the pool areas are turning into a party atmoshere) nothing wrong with that,... but this is just me and hubby ...just want a couple hours of "relaxation"..by beach area and am hoping its not a "billion" miles away from "THE" hotel.
