After many thoughts and reading the reviews I switch my hotel from the Excalibur to the MGM. Basically I was a little dissapointed that the pools at the X was not shaded plus they are doing some kind of expansion. My husband and I are water people, we love to swim like fishes, so MGM was what I decided to do. Did I made a mistake on doing that? I pay just a small small price (kinda) to switch, afterall at 95 plus degrees during June a nice pools are a plus in our book. Stayed at the Grand Wailea and also the Hyatt in Maui (wonderful pools)and I was looking for something like that without flying 10 hours from the east coast.
