After a long day of gambling, shopping, and walking around in the hot Las Vegas sun, there is nothing better than taking a dip in one of the luxurious pools that the city has to offer. However, with so many options, it can be hard to find where the best pools in Vegas are. Here is a list of the best pools in Vegas, so you can make the most of your vacation.
1. Mandalay Bay Beach
Located at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, this 11-acre pool area is complete with a lazy river, sand beach, and wave pool. Visitors can also enjoy drinks from one of the many bars located throughout the pool area. This breath-taking, 11-acre aquatic wonderland transports you to the South Seas with 2,700 tons of white sand making it one of the best pools in Vegas. There’s a wave pool where the waves can get up to as much as four feet, or you may prefer to go floating down the lazy river or relax at any of the three heated pools. Mandalay Beach features the enticing Moorea pool where it’s quite okay to lose your top.
2. Bellagio Fountains
The iconic fountains at the Bellagio Hotel are not to be missed. At night, these fountains put on a spectacular light show that is synchronized with music. During the day, you can take a dip in one of the five different pools onsite.
3. Caesars Palace Pool
Caesars Palace is home to four different pools, including an adults-only pool if you’re looking for a little peace and quiet. These pools are beautifully landscaped and provide plenty of room to sunbathe or take a refreshing dip. Fountains, waterfalls, giant columns and ornate statuary add to the theme. Cabanas, day beds and chaise lounge chairs abound, so take your pick – we’re really liking the tops-are-optional Venus pool and the sun-drenched Apollo.
4. Wynn Las Vegas Pool
The Wynn Las Vegas hotel has no less than seven different pools spread out across their property. With everything from an adults only pool to a family friendly option complete with a water slide, there is sure to be something for everyone here.
5. MGM Grand Pool
The MGM Grand Pool complex is made up of six different pools spread over 15 acres of land. In addition to traditional swimming pools, there is also a lazy river where you can float around and relax. This is one of the best options if you’re looking for a lot of variety in your pool experience.
6. Golden Nugget’s The Tank
What’s the grabber here? We could say the three-story water slide, but that’s only because it takes you right through the center of a shark-filled 200,000-gallon aquarium. Other serious “Wow!” worthy wet attractions include the opulent curved pool featuring two cascading waterfalls, and the two-story infinity pool of the adults-only Hideout.
7. Flamingo’s Beach Club Pool
The oldest resort on the Strip, certainly has no problems outshining some of the new kids on the block. A collection of exquisite flamingos, swans and ducks reside in the lush Wildlife Habitat next door to the family-friendly pool area. The lagoon shaped main pool delights children (and adults) with its maze of water slides winding through rocky caves, leading you to smaller terraced pools.
8. The Rio’s VooDoo Beach
VooDoo has completely nailed the tropical island paradise theme. From the palm trees and waterfalls to the cozy rock grottos hiding even cozier Jacuzzis, this gorgeous resort offers four distinct pools with something for everyone. The sand pool is a hands-down kids’ favorite, with its impressive real white sand beach. Older folks may find the flair bartenders and live DJ’s of The VooDoo pool more to their liking.
9. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Boulevard Pool
The resort’s east deck is the perfect setting for fun and frolic, or for just simply relaxing and letting the day go by. The elevated Boulevard Pool on the third floor boosts a striking view of other Strip resorts. When not sightseeing, there’s always table tennis and Foosball, or unwinding in any one of the hot tubs.
10. The Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa’s The Backyard
We’re pretty certain your backyard doesn’t look quite like this. With its exclusive cabanas, interactive island fountain and first-class café, this three-acre spread is a true aquatic marvel. The main circular pool, the Sandbar, is generously complemented by wading pools, a beach, private pool areas and hot tubs.
