Whether you’re planning a family trip to Las Vegas or just looking for a fun place to soak up the sun from about March to October, these hotels have some of the most impressive pools in the city. From rooftop oases to lavish day clubs, there’s something for everyone (even if you are just a day guest).

Here are a few top contenders for the best hotel pools in Las Vegas.

Best way to book: Book directly for the best deals and packages.

Three levels, six pools, and a 40-foot-tall gigantic jumbotron playing your favorite games: Circa Resort & Casino’s Stadium Swim multiplex is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The hotel is so confident of its pool’s excellence that Circa branded it “the best pool in history.”

Book one of the 38 daybeds to indulge in a glorious afternoon nap or sunbathe on one of the 337 chaise lounges. Swim-up bars are scattered around the premises, but guests can also reserve a private cabana to get individual service from one of the 100-plus attentive staff members.

The Downtown Grand, known for its modern aesthetic, is a quiet retreat from the Las Vegas Strip — even though it’s only a minute or two from all the action. The resort’s 36,000-square-foot rooftop pool is a classy addition to its many other amenities.

The Citrus Grand Pool Deck overlooks Las Vegas’ singular skyline and feels like an upscale but fun garden party. Besides the incredible view, the pool area is filled with unique features.

Now, the resort might be better known for its pool complex. Lagoons and waterfalls surround five acres of saltwater pools. Palm trees border the pool area, creating a dream-like, jungly atmosphere. With two jetted whirlpools, waterfalls and 16 luxurious private cabanas, the Mirage feels like a hidden tropical oasis.

For a more personalized experience, the second floor has beautiful private daybeds.

Best way to book: Book directly on the hotel’s website.

Palms is a short 10-minute drive away from the city’s legendary Strip — far away enough to be a peaceful setting, but still close enough to all the action.

In addition to its theater and world-class spa, Palms has two over-the-top pools. Cabanas and daybeds are scattered throughout the ground level of the Palms Casino Resort Pool; the oasis-style setting offers guests a comfortable place to relax. The second level features private cabanas with a plunge pool overlooking the ground level.

The Palms Place Pool is 50,000 square feet of paradise located on the sixth floor of the hotel. Its bright, modern aesthetic and seclusion offer guests a quieter option than the more electric Palms Casino Resort Pool.

FLAMINGO LAS VEGAS HOTEL & CASINO/JON BROWN/FACEBOOK

Best for: Waterslide lovers and live music aficionados.

Why stay here: Prime location, plenty of options.

Best way to book: Reserve directly through the hotel’s website.

The Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, and its two distinctive pools have big personalities during pool season.

The Go Pool is an adults-only area while the Beach Club gives families a nice place to regroup after fun out on the town. Unfortunately, the pools are only open from March through October.

The Go Pool hosts live DJs and music on its premises. Spend the day underneath the Flamingo’s iconic pink umbrellas on one of the many complimentary lounge chairs, or rent a daybed or private cabana. Cocktails and drinks are plentiful on the Go Pool’s poolside menu. Guests may also take a short walk to the Beach Club Cafe.

The Beach Club is a perfect destination for families looking for a fun pool experience. The main attraction is the exciting waterslide, which is designed to look like it shoots through huge boulders. The pool also features lagoons and waterfalls, giving it a tropical feel that transports you away from the hustle and bustle of Sin City.

In addition to the slide, The Beach Club offers cabanas and daybeds, as well as a bar and cafe where families can order food and drinks. Whether you’re looking to cool off in the water or relax in a cabana, The Beach Club has something for everyone.

Tahiti Village Resort & Spa

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

TAHITI VILLAGE RESORT & SPA/ERICKY J.HERNANDEZ/FACEBOOK

Best for: Families with younger children looking for a wide variety of options.

Why stay here: Heated lazy river, endless activities, family-friendly.

Best way to book: Book directly through the hotel’s website.

Tahiti Village Resort & Spa has been voted the best family-friendly resort by the Las Vegas Review-Journal for four years. Maybe it’s because the suite-only resort has a tiki-themed arcade or a wide range of activities for families to participate in (such as a mermaid encounter, poolside treasure hunt, and wine and painting classes). But it’s also probably because of its incredible pool.

The heated lazy river is simply iconic. It measures an eighth of a mile, and it has four distinct waterfall features and tiki torches placed all around it. The main pool has a sandy beach entry to the water, making it ideal for building sandcastles with the kids. Plus, two hot tubs (one for adults and one for all ages) make it a desirable destination for all.

If the pool isn’t enough, the hotel’s Mahana Spa is open seven days a week, offering massages, facials and more. In addition, with four on-site dining and drink options and two tiki-themed bars, you’ll never run out of ways to eat and celebrate after a restorative day at the pool or spa.

Located less than 2 miles from the legendary Strip and just south of the airport, Tahiti Village is well-positioned for all of the action of Las Vegas. The main pool is closed (seasonally) until February 2023, but the lazy river and hot tubs are open year-round.

Rates start at $117 per night.

Why stay here: If lavish displays of opulence are your cup of Champagne, these twin resorts will deliver.

Best way to book: Book through our partner Skylark to enjoy elitelike benefits and on-property credits.

Wynn Las Vegas hosts the World Pool Tournament and F1 racing, and it offers fitness classes with coaches trained in Tom Brady’s TB12 workout regimen. In addition, the Encore Theater presents internationally renowned artists and comedians. But did you know Wynn has four pools that rival even its most exciting events during pool season?

The Pool at Wynn boasts plushly pillowed lounge chairs where guests can order signature cocktails poolside or from a private cabana. Each cabana includes a flat-screen TV, complimentary bottled water and snacks. The setting is lively but appropriate for the whole family.

The Pool at Encore is surrounded by scenic gardens and is best for decompressing from the energy of the Strip. Cozy chaise chairs in the intimate setting inspire ultimate relaxation for guests looking for an escape.

The resort’s adults-only offerings are the Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub Sunday Nightswim. Both temperature-controlled pools host live music acts and acclaimed DJs to kick off the party in Vegas style. DJs like Calvin Harris and Marshmello have performed at the venue, making it one of the hottest spots in town. The SX Nightclub even has a luxurious indoor setting for those cooler desert nights.

Rates at Wynn and Encore Las Vegas start at $254 per night.

Hilton Vacation Club Cancun Resort Las Vegas

HILTON VACATION CLUB CANCUN RESORT LAS VEGAS/CANCUN RESORT LAS VEGAS

Best for: Familiarity, waterslides.

Why stay here: Away from the Strip with the benefits of being a Hilton.

Best way to book: Book through Hilton to earn or redeem points for stays.

Hilton Vacation Club Cancun Resort Las Vegas is an outpost of Hilton Grand Vacations. The all-suites resort is located just south of the legendary Las Vegas Strip — about a 10-minute drive from the main drag. It’s close enough to the action but far away enough that families can find a respite from the crowds.

The resort features two beautiful pools. A Mayan-inspired pyramid stands in the center of the two, with a grand waterfall rushing down into the main pool. That’s not at all, though. Four water slides are strategically scattered throughout the pool’s premises, promising fun for the entire family. The poolside restaurant and bar offers guests delicious takes on classics like the bacon cheeseburger or Cancun breakfast burrito.

Rates start at $82 per night.
