Las Vegas pool season is the real deal. There are experiences for every person, mood, and age. We recently highlighted the Las Vegas dayclubs and pool parties opening for the 2021 pool season. Today we’re going to look at the pools for everyone to enjoy at the different MGM Resorts Las Vegas properties. Altogether there are more than 10 different pool environments at properties that fall under the M Life Rewards loyalty program.
“While people go to D.C. for cherry blossom season and Colorado for ski season, travelers come from all over the world to be a part of the Vegas pool season,” said Ari Kastrati, Chief Hospitality Officer at MGM Resorts International. “The city is known for its hot summer weather and its cool pool environments. Our teams are ready to help guests escape and enjoy a much-needed respite.”
I like to focus on MGM Resorts pools because no other Las Vegas hotel company has the same variety.
The massive Mandalay Bay Beach complex is 11 acres large. It includes a lazy river, wave pool and an actual beach. MGM Grand has another lazy river for the family and also one of the most popular dayclubs for anyone 21 and older.
These hotels have thousands of hotel rooms. The resort pools can get busy because so many people stay in the main hotel towers.
One of the neat features for MGM Resorts pools are the hotels within the hotels. For example, visitors can stay at Delano or Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay where they will have a quieter pool experience. These guests can also choose the big beach complex.
Mandalay Bay isn’t the only MGM Resorts property with this option. Guests who book a room at the Aria Sky Suites also have access to a private pool experience from the rest of Aria.
