Mandalay Bay – Las Vegas, Nevada

I’ve always loved going to Las Vegas especially experiencing new hotels. This time, I found myself checked in at Mandalay Bay, and the hotel is beautiful. The resort is absolutely beautiful but I wished the staff was friendlier as i had an incident with them, and they didn’t seem to value my experience.

The room was very nice and spacious. The bed was a king size bed and really comfortable. It was a great hotel to lounge at after a long day in Vegas!

The room offered only a bit of storage area, but had lots of space in general and seating area. It’s a lovely room with a stocked mini bar.

The bathroom was very impressive, it was large, tiled, and offered a separate toilet area. There’s a double sink, a stand up shower and a soaker tub.

This bathoom even has a TV in the room so you won’t miss anything on TV when you’re winding down in the tub.

Overall, the experience was quite pleasurable. We enjoyed the beautiful lobby, the pool area looks nice – although it was not opened during my stay. The complimentary flavoured water in the lobby was really a nice touch as well.

The Mirage Hotel and Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada

I really enjoy trying new resorts on the Las Vegas strip, and we got the chance to try Mirage which is located pretty centre on the strip. A beautiful resort that offers a volcano outside.

I have stayed in their Resort King Room and it was really beautiful. One of our favourite hotels on the strip with a strip view. The king bed was very inviting and it was indeed very comfortable. The rooms here are quite quiet considering the amount of people and traffic. You can still get a great nights sleep!

The entry way of the room was beautiful as well as it opens onto a beautifully tiled spacious area. Tons of space for shoes and suit cases and there is a huge closet space as well.

The bathroom, although quite standard in comparison to the rest of the room was spacious and still very nice. Lots of counter top space for those who needs it and the shower had a nice pressure to it.

I do like this hotel, the windows to open a little bit to hear the volcano eruption and just to get some fresh air. This room definitely has all the amenities that you need including a stocked mini bar fridge, ice buckets, and a business desk with ports.

The pools at the Mirage are beautiful as well, although when we got here, they were closed for winter – which makes me have the urge to return to the resort and try out their pools!

Market Cafe Vdara – Las Vegas

We were staying at Vdara and I needed to grab a quick bite to eat before heading to the airport – so we just ate at the cafe downstairs called Market Cafe Vdara.

Once I saw the menu, I knew what I wanted! I wanted their Pacific Coast Bennies which is their salmon eggs benedict! It came complete with hashbrowns and asparagus! The salmon wasn’t bad at all and the hollandise sauce was really good. Overall, I still love my favourite breakfast!

Sticking with the salmon mode, we also ordered the Smoked Salmon Bagel which again was delicious! You can top your bagel with whatever toppings you wanted and how much you wanted as well – as it came on the side. Everything wa so fresh and delicious, it was a good time!

Overall, it was a great place to stop for food. However, be prepared for a long wait as there are tons of people grabbing take out and what not! It is worth the wait though!
