There’s nothing more sweltering than the Nevada sunshine, but luckily, there are some incredible pools you can dip your toes into where Las Vegas is concerned. Some of them offer adrenaline-packed fun with water slides, rapids, lazy rivers, and tons of water sports activities.

Others have a genuine oasis feel to them with plenty of relaxing sun lounges, private cabanas, all night DJs, and even a fake beach! If you’re looking to make the most out of your trip to Vegas this summer, here are some of the top adult and family-friendly pools that promise to make it a truly memorable one!

Garden of the Gods // Caesars Palace

The Garden of Gods at Caesars Palace certainly lives up to its name! The Romanesque style oasis makes the ideal place to cool off from the desert heat, and features seven decadent swimming pools modeled after classic Italian architecture. One of these is the Fortuna pool, which features a swim-up blackjack table for anyone looking to try their luck outside the casino.

There are also air-conditioned cabanas with cold drinks and fruit plates at every poolside, sun lounges, daybeds, plus the option to get pampered like a genuine goddess with a Caesar’s deep tissue massage.  

The Tank // Golden Nugget

Get your trip to SeaWorld and the casino all in one, because the Tank pool at the Golden Nugget casino is full of real blood-thirsty SHARKS! Ok, so maybe they are in a separate secure tank and fed regularly, but you can’t deny the fear factor adds to the excitement! And there are a lot of other things to get geared up for at this place too, including a 30 feet tall water slide that goes straight through the 200,000-gallon shark tank, 17 cabanas, wellness waterfalls, and a classy H2O bar where you can knock back a refreshing cocktail or two. 

Grand Pool Complex // MGM Grand

If you’re looking to have fun with the family, the Grand Pool and the MGM is unquestionably the place to let the kids run wild. The pool complex stretches across a massive 6.5 acres and sits directly behind the casino resort. Guests can make use of 5 different sized swimming pools, a lazy river, three spacious hot tubs, and five pool bars with a broad selection of delicious food and drinks options. There are hundreds of lounge chairs, 26 cabanas complete with TVs, minibars, towel boy, massage, plus plenty of water and poolside activities to enjoy.

Encore Beach Club // Wynn Las Vegas

Anyone on the hunt for a raucous pool party should head to the ECB if they want a real Vegas-style experience. Partygoers come from all corners of the globe to bask in the sunshine, guzzle down booze, and dance the day and night away in the adult-only pool. The club is known to bring in the world’s top DJs to spin the latest anthems most weekends, and there is always a unique theme that invites guests to dress and impress — even in their bathing suits! Just be prepared to wait a while, as people line the streets to join the party!  

The NoMad Pool // Park MGM

You already have to have pretty deep pockets to enjoy the opulence of the Park MGM, or at least have had a successful night at a casino beforehand! To stand on the pool deck of the NoMad Las Vegas will set you back $20, and cost more than $1,000 to use a cabana for the day! The pool itself is located on the 6th floor and inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco.

Guests can unwind in one of the deluxe pool lounges and enjoy succulent morsels cooked up by Eleven Madison Park’s top chef, Daniel Humm. Once you’ve pleased and cleansed your pallet, you can serve yourself a juicy cocktail from your own cocktail fountain, step foot into the lavish rooftop pool, and take in the breathtaking views of the city. 

Mandalay Bay Beach // Mandalay Bay 

If you think the Grand Pool Complex won’t be big enough, we’re pretty confident MGM’s Mandalay Bay Beach will satisfy your need for aqua antics. The world-renowned water playground sits on 11 acres made up of three swimming pools surrounded by 2,700 tons of real white sand.

Guests can ride the tidal rapids and enjoy live concerts inside the 1.6-million gallon wave pool, float leisurely down the resort’s lazy river, or take a break from the sunshine in one of the private cabanas. There is also an oasis-like lagoon with mini gazebos to get some personal space, plus the open air Beach Bar and Grill to replenish some energy before your next dip!

The Palazzo // The Venetian

The Venetian is one of the best casinos in Vegas, and home to 10 heated pools surrounded by beautiful, Venice-inspired decor and gardens. The complex spans across five acres and is recognized as one of the best pool complexes along the Strip. Clubbers and beach lovers can dance the day and night away to beats from celebrity DJs, and sip on cool beverages at the party-famous Tao Beach.

Those looking to have a more low-key swim can choose from the adult-only pools before relaxing in the shade of a lush cabana. Visitors with young children can also relax and enjoy the family-friendly pools, and get everything they need for a fun-filled day in the water from the on-site store. 

Don’t Forget the Sun Screen!

Now you know the best places for a splash in Vegas, be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out! An important thing to note is that most of these venues require you to be staying at the complex to get free access, so don’t forget to factor this in before you arrive! Above all, enjoy, stay safe, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
