Lounging by the pool in Las Vegas isn’t quite the same as anywhere else. Whether living it up inside a cabana or lounging on a daybed, your troubles will quickly melt away underneath the blistering Nevada sun. Vegas is all about the perks, and some of the best are found at Sin City’s top hotel pools, where demand skyrockets during the triple-digit heat of summer.
My first exposure to the Vegas hotel pool scene was at the MGM Grand’s Wet Republic eight years ago. The lines were long, security was strict, and there was barely any room in the pool to move—but people weren’t really there to swim. It was more about the drinks and music. And if you have the money or connections for a luxury cabana—typically decked out with a flat-screen TV, video game console, wine cooler, and comfortable furnishings—even better.
Yet dayclubs are only a small part of what makes Vegas fun in the summer heat. Resorts on and off the Strip have pools for families and couples in addition to the party crowd. Some are busy. Some are quiet. But there’s something for everyone. So learn about the best pools in Las Vegas to determine a hotel that’s right for you on your next swimming vacation!
