Mandalay Bay’s Moorea Beach Club is now open to the public, but it’ll cost you $50 to get in if you’re a guy, even if you’re staying at the hotel (all women are free).
Despite the high admission cost, on a hot weekend afternoon in the summer you’ll find the pool fairly crowded—maybe 100 guests on average, about half men and half women, mostly in their 20s and 30s. Perhaps a quarter of the female guests will be topless—relaxing in the long thin arc-shaped pool, sitting in one of the two spas, or sunning on the deck. On a typical day, half or more of the topless women would figure into the SGNC (stripper-grade nipple count). Unfortunately, I haven’t seen any titty-ball games here (no beach balls) or any other nipples in motion to speak of.
The music is the typical hip-hop/rock/house you hear at most nightclubs (and Vegas pools) these days. If you don’t rent a cabana or day bed, shade is hard to come by; you pretty much have to sit up by the bar if you want to get out of the sun. There’s a reasonably-priced sandwich/burger/wrap/salad menu.
The disadvantages of this pool for a strip-club aficionado are: 1) You can get a better show elsewhere, especially considering that 2) the admission price is so high. While I have definitely seen cute topless girls here, as well as quite a few more babes in bikinis, I object to the $50 admission fee for men. Thus, the CPN (cost per nipple) is high and that brings down the ANEI.
And they really ought to get some beach balls into that pool! This place is supposed to be hip and their pricing policy is definitely indicative of an American-style pool, yet they’ve never heard of titty ball? I also think they ought to make a few more umbrellas available out in the deck lounge areas. That Vegas sun is hot.
In any case, even if I had a room at Mandalay Bay, I probably wouldn’t pay fifty bucks to go to this pool, with so many better topless pools around for less.
