Las Vegas is famous for its Strip, its hotels and their magnificent pools.  Some are fun and exciting, and others are pure, laid-back relaxation, so go get ready for pool season and check out our top 10 pools in Las Vegas.  Just be aware that to enter the pool complexes of the hotels, you probably need to be a guest or will have to pay a fee, but anyone should be able to enter the ones listed below.

1. Mandalay Beach

Mandalay Bay Beach is the most action-packed pool on far south strip.  The beach features a relaxing lazy river experience with or without inner tubes, a great recreational wave pool where you can body surf on the waves into the shore, and real California sand!  In addition to those amazing features, the 11-acre beach contains four additional quieter pools to swim in and two jacuzzi’s to relax in.  Try your hand in the beachside casino, have a meal at the Beach Bar & Grill, grab a drink at the Bikini Bar or from any of the red bikini-clad servers walking around, or relax in Moorea Beach, Mandalay Bay’s European-style pool experience.  If you want the option for an even greater resortist experience, you can rent one of their many cabanas, daybeds, bungalows, or personalized villas.  You will never be at a loss of things to do at the Mandalay Bay Beach.


2. Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesar’s Palace

Caesar’s Palace– a classic Vegas escape featuring five acres of the Garden of the Gods pool.  It offers eight different pools surrounded by beautiful Roman architecture and a clean, relaxing design.  With so much space you won’t know where to start.  Immerse yourself in cool waters freshened by waterfalls and the stark white of the Greek statues.  Each pool has a different purpose; the Fortuna pool for swim-up blackjack, the Venus pool for the European topless experience, the Temple pool for family-friendliness, the Neptune pool for casual laps, and even the Bacchus pool for celebrities and the like alone.  Rent a daybed for a flexibly comfortable lounge or go all out and rent a modern, nautical-style cabana.


3. Cosmopolitan 3 Pool District

For the new kid on the block, they sure have made some waves with their rooftop Boulevard pool.  Considered one of the hippest pools on the strip it contains sweeping city views, a shaded area for table games such as foosball and billiards, special events, innovative alcoholic concoctions, and a 65’ digital marquee screen.  Their upper-level Marquee pool boasts private cabanas with their own individual infinity pools and Monday night showcases “Dive-In Movies”.  For a posh and semi-wild adult escape, Cosmopolitan may be for you.


4. The Mirage Pool

Mirage represents a beautiful mix of a creative hotel pool with magnificent landscaping.  The area of water is fascinatingly massive and emanates the idea that you could swim there forever.  They focused on quality over quantity with just two perfect pools and two secluded whirlpools.  It is considered one of the best pool retreats in Vegas for a reason.


5. Go Pool

Flamingo– options for families and die-hard partiers alike.  An experience itself, the Wildlife Habitat of the Flamingo Hotel provides lush greenery, wandering pink flamingos, and picturesque waterfalls.  Follow the path back to the extensive pool complex featuring pools for adults and kids.  The family-friendly pool features a maze of waterslides and the GO pool, which becomes a party pool during busier hours, is complete with sitting ledges and a full grotto beneath the large, cascading waterfall.  It’s an adult-only retreat where you can rent cabanas with startling amenities and play poolside blackjack.  When the party happens, you will see crazy crowds, flowing alcohol, and scantily clad dancers on landings.  Follow the trail past the pool to find the wedding chapel, tennis courts, and more interesting monuments.


6. MGM Grand Pool

MGM Grand- An island oasis in the desert.  Whether you like it wild or you like it calm, you can plan around different times to experience either in this jungle oasis.  Boasting fresh trees and greenery, hidden whirlpool nooks, and a relaxing lazy river, the complex has a little something for everyone.  Visit the Director’s adult only pool as an escape from the family-friendliness or choose a quiet spot throughout the complex to just sit and enjoy not being able to see the forest through the trees.  A real gem of beauty, action, and options in the middle of the desert, the MGM Pool will make you feel like a star!


7. Monte Carlo Pool

Monte Carlo features an outdoor paradise complete with the first strip wave pool, a lazy river, and a sand volleyball court.  They regularly have DJ’s and MC’s pumping out the music, volleyball competitions, weekend pool parties, and poolside food service.  Everything you want is at your fingertips including a kiddie pool complete with mini lounge chairs and available admission for non-guests.  This pool is known more for a family-friendly spot than a party pool so if you want to avoid the crazy party scene, this is a great place to kick back and relax poolside.


8. Bellagio Pools and Courtyards

Bellagio– Who can resist the faux Italian villas and the atmosphere where no detail is overlooked.  Take in the scenery from the balcony before descending down the stairs into aquatic oblivion.  Five pools grace the beautiful grounds for a calming, luxurious experience on a beautiful tiled cement deck.  Athletes will love the lap pools for their morning routine and daytime loungers will appreciate the escape from the action of the strip.  Dine at the poolside café, take a soothing dip in one of the four whirlpools, or order a massage poolside.  For upscale pampering, Bellagio has it all.


9. Tropicana Pool

The Tropicana Resort’s newly renovated pool complex sits on four acres of South Beach-inspired landscaping.  The grounds include a large and beautiful main pool, the Lagoon, an adult-only retreat, and a six foot deep Garden Pool.  With tropical lagoons, wild waterfalls, plush daybeds, shaded eating areas, and peaceful winding paths, you could spend the entire day lost in another world.  The grounds are impeccably manicured and the offset jacuzzis offer some peaceful reprieve from the fun in the pool.  To feed your wilder side, visit the Lagoon Pool for the music, eye candy, and swim-up blackjack that get your heart pumping.  The fun doesn’t stop for the winter months when a portion of the complex is enclosed for a heated 24 hour a day experience.


10. Excalibur Pool

Excalibur’s pool complex is probably the most underrated pool on the strip.  Freshly renovated in 2007, the area features 30,000 square feet of sundeck, four different pools, three Jacuzzi’s, and Drenched, their poolside restaurant.  They thought of it all when they designed the complex; two pools are for casual swim, one pool is family-friendly with two waterslides to keep the kids entertained, and one pool and Jacuzzi are located in the back corner with a fire pit and reserved for those over 21 only.  The area is lined with tons of lounge chairs, private cabanas, and convenient amenities.
