we spent 6 days at this hotel during Chinese New Year. we haven been to ritz-carlton which is on the same beach for 7 times and this was the first time at MGM. the experience was horrible. They charge pretty much the same but the service was not comparable to ritz-carlton. the worst part is the attitude of outdoor staff...

Big resort hotel - nice location with direct access to the beach. Large rooms most with nice views. The build quality of this facility is high. I would say that many of the touches such as English competency is low. Not unexpected due to the location and the primary clientele which seem to be from PRC and from Russia. That's...

I was torn between all of the large resorts, ended up selecting here and glad I did. Location along with the Sheraton are the best. Plus the food is amazing. Also like the little Cafes set up around the resort where you could chill out with $10 coffees 😉

Very nice resort with a very clean and beautiful beach. Top notch service! Stayed here for three days and enjoyed it. The resort was a little too big for me. I'm more favor boutique style hotels and resorts but this was a free vacation for me. Can't really complain about anything. The morning breakfast was fantastic! Everything there is expensive,...

Alright, I was here for a few nights for a conference. At first, I thought it is a fake MGM. The photos of the rooms are very different from those in Las Vegas. It is so Chinese, big red and etc. . . But then I found a link from the MGM website, So, I guessed it is an official...

I had dinner in the hotel when I was here at Christmas so thought I would try it out during my next visit. Unfortunately the hotel lacks any sense of customer service you would expect from a MGM property. The only positive things I would say is the rooms are large and modern with a comfy bed. The food is...

I have visited the hotel numerous times over the last 3 years. The deluxe ocean view rooms have nice view towards the ocean and pools. I guess only the suites have direct ocean view. Garden view rooms have no balcony, so these rooms may smell tobacco even if branded as non-smoking rooms. The major issues I have with MGM: [1]...

We stayed here for an anniversary trip. The staff was ok, if lacking English ability. The hotel was fine, but one got the sense that this was a place trying to copy an American luxury hotel, not a place that was an American luxury hotel. On top of that, they had a fire drill in the middle of the day....
