It’s Pool SZN in Las Vegas! It’s actually been pool season since the beginning of March at some properties despite the rain and cooler than normal temperatures. This blog post is geared towards the millions of Caesars Rewards (formerly Total Rewards) members that plan on visiting Las Vegas during pool season. Many Las Vegas visitors are loyal to one casino players club and tend to visit those properties more often than not.
Since Caesars Rewards has eight casinos to choose from in Las Vegas it makes sense group their properties together so you can make the best pool selection on your next visit. Sometimes staying at a casino-resort with the best pool is the most important part of booking a summer vacation. Last year a friend booked a certain tower at a specific hotel just to be closer to the pool entrance. We all have different priorities.
We’ll save the dayclubs and pool parties for another day. Today we’ll look at the different pools that are open to Caesars Las Vegas hotel guests.
Caesars Las Vegas Pools
The Blu Pool is a classic Las Vegas swimming pool. Unlike most newer pools in Las Vegas, this pool is large, deep (12 feet) and made for swimming. The secluded pool is located outside of the basement near the tennis courts and sportsbook. It’s a hidden gem away from the action. As you’d expect they have cabanas, DJs, and cocktail service. They have drink specials and Happy Hour at 10 am and again at 4 pm.
Caesars Palace has a massive pool area. There are seven pools at the Garden of the God’s pool complex. There are family friendly pools, 21 and up pools and even an adults-only toptional pool (yeah, tops are optional at this hidden pool). This pool complex is particularly popular in the summer because they offer swim-up blackjack where you actually play cards in the pool.
Drai’s Beach Club also doubles as the pool for hotel guests. While the beach club parties cost money for everyone, entry earlier in the day is included with your hotel fee. Since the hotel is small, this pool is relatively calm before the beach club opens. The rooftop pool deck has spectacular views of the Vegas Strip if you need to take a sweet pic for the ‘Gram.
This is one of the most popular pools in Las Vegas because they have an all-ages family pool and a 21+ pool with gambling and DJ. The 21+ Go Pool also has pool parties during the day and at night if you’re looking for more than just lounging. The Go Pool even has drink specials that include $5 off beer buckets, $5 off specialty pitchers, and $150 bottles.
The pool area is relatively small and mellow when compared to some other Caesars Las Vegas pools. Early in the week, you can enjoy the heat in relative quiet at this rooftop pool deck. They have DJ’s spinning from Thursday through Sunday so it might be a little loud if you just like sitting poolside and reading a book.
The Influence Pool is only open to adults 21 and over. This small party pool deck has multiple pools and almost always has music playing in the afternoon. There are games to play and plenty of booze options to choose from. Guests at The Linq even get discounts on liquid encouragement. If you love partying at the pool, you might want to consider a cabana room. These rooms open to a semi-private deck connected with the pool. Just walk out of your room into the pool.
Paris Las Vegas
The Soliel Pool is a two-acre pool deck. This family-friendly pool is above the Vegas Strip and sits in the shadows of the Eiffel Tower. By comparison, this is one of the more mellow pools on the Vegas Strip. Upgrade your experience with a cabana or villa.
The Scene Pool is large with multiple pools including a FlowRider surf pool. This is an all-ages party pool. Adults to the right, families to the left, and a casino pit in the middle. There’s live music Tuesday-Saturday, frequent special events, and live music. This is another pool deck above the Vegas Strip and it offers something for anyone – much like the casino-resort and mall below.
The Voodoo Pool is one of the best secret pool environments in Las Vegas. The tropical pool area is open to all ages and features four pools, lush greenery, and multiple waterfalls. The massive pool area has two bars and room for 500 lounge chairs. If you want to spend your entire day at the pool you can even order food with your mobile device so you never have to leave.
