Las Vegas pools are an attraction of their own. Mandalay Bay has a beach, MGM Grand has a lazy river, Caesars Palace has multiple pools for every occasion – including swim-up blackjack. The newest pool scene in Las Vegas is at Palms. This pool complex has a performance stage, DJ stage, 65-foot tall statue, and 39 cabanas – most with their own pool.
The variety of pools in Las Vegas is huge. However, there aren’t many pools that offer a view of the beautiful Las Vegas Strip. Today we’ll look at casinos that offer a great rooftop pool experience with those great views.
The Cosmopolitan pool district offers three different experiences. One of those pools offers great views off the Vegas Strip. The Boulevard Pool offers great scenery and different vibes during the day and night.
This multi-level pool offers unobstructed views of the Las Vegas skyline but it offers more than just a place to wet your toes and look at the gorgeous Vegas Strip. The Overlook Grill is a casual restaurant at the Boulevard Pool that offers indoor and outdoor dining from 9 am – 3 pm daily. You can grab brunch here on the weekends.
Dive In Movies is heading into its ninth year at the Boulevard Pool. Instead of taking a dip in the pool at night guests can watch movies on the 65-foot digital marquee. Hotel guests receive complimentary admission. There’s a $7 admission for everyone else. Here’s the schedule for Dive In Movies:

The Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan offers a lot that pools on the Vegas Strip don’t. The pool area has even been home to concerts in previous years. There isn’t a much better setting than watching a great band with the lights of Vegas Strip everywhere you turn.
The Cromwell is a 188 room boutique casino-hotel on the Vegas Strip. The casino is always rocking and the hotel rooms are among the nicest you’ll find at a Caesars Entertainment property.
The rooftop pool deck is an underrated feature for guests staying at the Cromwell. Like the rest of the property, it’s small in stature and big on looks…and views. The view of the Vegas Strip is unmatched by any other pool in the area.
Similar to the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan, this pool has a different kind of fun during different times of the day. During weekdays this rooftop pool deck is open to all guests at the hotel. The pool area also doubles as Drai’s Beach Club at night and on the weekend (some holidays too).
During the week the pool environment as relaxing as the views are beautiful. You can see as far south as the Cosmopolitan without obstruction. To the north, you’ll find a sweet view of Caesars Palace.
Here’s one note about The Cromwell that’s unrelated to the pool. A couple of years ago The Cromwell added a new quick-serve restaurant, sportsbook and (most importantly) improved their gaming odds for players.
