Top 10 Las Vegas Pools
Dennis Lauritsen

What do you do in Las Vegas during the daytime after an evening in the Casino? Enjoy a buffet breakfast in your favorite restaurant, take a walk, see some attractions, then...
a must do...relax, take a Swim and get a tan.

Here are the TOP TEN POOLS in Las Vegas with a brief description of their offerings and themes. Did you know many visitors to Las Vegas book their Hotel based on their favorite pool? Seems like most first time visitors to Las Vegas have the impression that it is at least 100 degrees here year round. Well, it isnt. Most outdoor pools are open from March/April to October/November! Weve listed Hotels that have year round indoor pools or heated outdoor pools.


10. The Palms Night Time Fun! Be Cool! Hang out! 75,000 square feet of pool, 21 Cabanas, The Skin Pool Lounge, music, dance by the pool, enjoy Wet N Wild after dark!

9. Luxor - The Luxor has created a 7 acre, Egyptian theme complex that is nothing short of spectacular! Outstanding poolside service, open year round! Be treated like King Tut!

8. Venetian - Known to be the ultimate romantic destination for couples. 5 full acres of pools, fountains, flower gardens and statues. Relax, get a tan, be in love. Even get married. Thats AMORE!

7. Bellagio - What can we say? Prestige, Ritzy, Swanky just what you would expect from a Billion Dollar setting! 85,000 square feet of 6 pools, beautiful fountains, colors, flowers and Premier service. Be pampered in an elegant refuge for the rich!

6. MGM Grand - A longtime favorite of Hollywood Movie Stars, a 27,000 square foot complex of beautiful pools, spas and Backlot River where you can have a drink and take a leisurely 3 MPH float around the complex! Get a tan where the stars of Le Femme hang out!

5. Flamingo - From the dreams of Benjamin Bugsy Siegel in 1947 to the posh pool fun of today. Enjoy the lush Hawaiian theme with water slides, stone water falls, even shade! Luxury at its finest. Try their specialty drinks!

4. Caesars Palace - Roman decadence in the Garden of the Gods! 3 pools covering 5 acres of Italian opulance! Have a drink by stone pediments and be served frozen grapes by Goddesses (weekends only). Or, have your photo taken by the pool with Caesar and Cleopatra! Very cool!

3. The Mirage - A Polynesian tropical jungle lagoon. Amazingly beautiful foliage amidst waterfalls, 3 waterslides, hidden alcoves covering 5 full acres of jungle. An afternoon of sunshine and cool fun you will remember for years to come.

2. Hard Rock - Want to party? This is the place you want to be! Vegas party central. The Pool Party runs from 10:00 AM to Midnight 7 days a week! Hang out with Rock Stars, Movie Stars and the Beautiful People or play Las Vegas only blackjack tables in the water! Pools, hot tubs, 37 cabanas, a float river and Party, Party, Party!

1. Mandolay Bay - Mandolay Bay went all out in creating an 11 acre lagoon of lush greens. They hauled in 1,700 tons of sand to create Vegas only Wave Pool with 6 waves of bodysurfer paradise. 4 pools, waterfalls surrounded by a jungle atmosphere where you can take a mile RiverRide or relax the day away and come away with a Las Vegas tan!

My favorites that I've been to are the MGM and the Mirage. I've seen the Flamingo but I haven't been in it. Mandalay Bay, Hard Rock and Palms don't do much for me. All those hardbodies just remind me of how out of shape I am...

My sentiments exactly, Dave! That's why I do all my laps with the senior citizens (or non-PC term: "old people") in Henderson!
