Pool 101: Beat the heat with a Las Vegas pool experience
Ready for some fun in the sun? It doesn’t get any better than a relaxing pool day. From cabanas and drink options to specific pool itineraries, here’s everything you need to know for the ultimate Las Vegas pool experience.
Is it pool season in Vegas yet?
YES! All 10 of our Caesars Entertainment pools are officially open in Las Vegas.
What are the typical hours for pools?
Pools usually open around 9 a.m. and close at 6 p.m., just before sunset. Pool clubs, like Venus Pool Club at Caesars Palace and The Voo at Rio tend to open around 11 a.m. - noon.
So, what do I need to bring with me?
Your fun self, of course!
Well, you won’t need towels because the pool provides them for you. We do suggest asking for two – one to dry off with and one to put across your chair - these seats can get really hot.
Any tips on pool gear?
Other than the obvious – swim trunks, bathing suit, flip-flops and sunglasses – hats are a must. The scorching sun beaming down on you is no joke! You can always score a hat at Goorin Bros. at The LINQ, which offers a bunch of stylish straw hats for men and women. Step up your game with new sunglasses from Chilli Beans, also at The LINQ. They have every style, from cat-eye to John Lennon-inspired frames. If you’re walking through a casino before or after your trip excursion, bring a cover-up. The air-conditioned gaming areas will be a harsh transition. One more thing: Personal water misters come in handy; you can find them at any sundries store.
I’m hearing security is pretty strict - friends told me I have to be careful what to bring to the pool. What’s safe and not safe?
Items that AREN’T allowed include: Eye drops; mints; gum; compact mirrors; and bottled water (or any liquids). If you have a prescription bottle, it must be unexpired. The name on the bottle must also match the name on your ID.
If I want to live it up with all my friends, how does the cabana / daybed situation work?
Well, well, well…you’ve come to Vegas to party during the day? Good choice. Cabanas typically offer the following:
- Fan and/or air-conditioning
- Flat-screen TVs
- Stocked refrigerators with bottled water
- Refreshments / fruit
- Iced towels
- Personal cabana host
Let’s talk about pampering. Are spa services available poolside?
Yes. You would need to coordinate these with your hotel’s concierge in advance. They’re typically standard poolside massages. Massages are done in a remote area, ensuring the ultimate relaxation.
Can anyone just go to these hotel pools?
Hotel pools are for guests only, but if you’re staying in any of the eight Las Vegas Caesars Entertainment properties, you can travel from one pool to the other. Some pools may offer an entry fee. Pool clubs, however, are open to the general public with admission.
I understand your hotels are pet-friendly; can I bring Fido to the pool?
As adorable as Fido would look doggy paddling, pets are not permitted and only allowed in the resort’s designated areas.
