The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
One of the most epic views of the Vegas strip is from the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan. It features cabanas, daybeds, and lounge chairs.
But the best part is that they play movies on Monday at 8 PM. They call it a dive-in movies. How cute is that?
The movies are free for 2 hotel guests and Identity reward members and 1 military member & a guest (with valid ID). It is also open to locals for $10 (with ID) and $15 for non-locals.

The Soleil Pool is closed during the Winter months, but open from 9 AM to 6 PM during other seasons.

For a premium experience, upgrade to a cabana with a private plunge pool!
The Venetian Pool Deck is open from 10 AM to 4 PM. Hours are often expanded in the Summer months.
The Tank at Golden Nugget
The Golden Nugget’s main pool, aka The Tank, features a waterfall, lounge chairs, and private cabanas.
But the best part is the $30 million, 3-story water slide that cuts right through a 200,000 gallon shark tank.
The slide is see-through, so you’ll feel like you’re right in the tank with the sharks!
Tours of the shark tank are available twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays at 1:30 PM. The tour is led by a Marine Biologist and currently costs $50 per person.
The Golden Nugget pool areas are closed during most of the Winter season, but often opens up some time in mid-February.

Sky Villa pools at Palms Casino Resort
The best infinity pools in Vegas are at the Palms Casino Resort’s Sky Villas that overlook the city skyline.
To top it off, not all of the Sky Villas are alike, so that’s not the only cool feature to come with it! Some of the villas have personal saunas, swings, personal butlers, and more.
Could a pool be any more baller??
The GO Pool at Flamingo
This 21+ pool is free for hotel guests AND the public from Sunday through Friday.

Influence, The POOL at LINQ
Next up is Influence, The POOL at LINQ, a popular choice with 20-somethings who want a cheap, but cool place to stay with a fun hangout spot where they can cool off.
A cool feature at Influence is that you can book rooms that open up to the pool deck that have a private lounge area attached. No need for a cabana or daybed, plus you don’t have to wait in line for the bathroom, ha!
The pool is open to adults 21+ only. If you’re traveling with anyone under 21, you can use the Flamingo Beach Club next door for free.
Influence is open 9 AM to 6 PM. It is free to hotel guests, $10 for guests of other Caesars resorts, and $20 for the public. It occasionally has free entry to the public, as well.

Moorea at Mandalay Bay
In addition to the massive main pool area, Mandalay Bay Beach has a 21+ pool area called Moorea.
Moorea is a topless optional area, or “toptional” as the Mandalay Bay marketing team likes to call it.
The cover charge wildly varies from free to $40. Call 877.632.7700 to confirm availability and cover charge.
Delano Beach Club
Located at Mandalay Bay’s Delano resort, the Delano Beach Club is a secluded pool open to guests of the Delano only. So if you want to play here, you’ll have to stay here!
This fun pool features an in-water life-sized chess board, complete with playing pieces. Suddenly I want to learn how to play!
Bellagio Pool Deck at Bellagio
Bellagio has 5 pools available, such as the Terrace Pool seen below.
Each area at Bellagio is so impeccably designed that you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the backyard of a Mediterranean mansion!
Access to the pool area is free for hotel guests, with fees for additional services and items, such as cabanas, lounge chairs, massages, food, and drink. Non-hotel guests are not permitted.
The Bellagio pools and jacuzzis are open from 9 AM to 4 PM, though hours are subject to change.
Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace
The Garden of Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace spans 5 acres and includes 7 pools, each with a unique vibe.
One of my favorite features at Garden of the Gods is the ability to place mobile orders for food and drink.
To place a mobile order, all you have to do is text PALACE to 227466. Then you’ll get a text message with a link to the menu and ordering system.
After you place your mobile order, you can retrieve it at the Snackus Maximus order pickup area.
Fingers crossed that Caesars Palace figures out a way to have mobile orders delivered straight to you in the future!
Garden of the Gods is available for free to Caesars and Nobu Hotel guests. Non-guests can enjoy the area for a $20 cover charge.
Psst – here’s how I’d spend 1 perfect day at Caesars Palace.
When do pools open and close in Vegas?
Before you jump to book your Las Vegas resort based on the pool, make sure it’ll actually be open during your visit.
Yes, Las Vegas weather is nice year round, but it can get too chilly for outdoor pools during the late fall and winter months.
Each resort differs on when they open and close their pools for the winter season. In general, most resorts will have their pool open from spring through mid-fall.
If you’re planning to visit Las Vegas outside that time or in the shoulder season, double check with your preferred resort about whether their pool will be open before you book.
Which of the best pools in Vegas is your favorite?
So which Vegas resort are you going to book based on their pool? I know, it’s so hard to choose a favorite between all the great pools in Las Vegas!
