    I've done a search and have tried to find out if Ballys has a hot tub at their pool? It says they do on the Ballys website. I have been unable to locate it in pictures/videos. I was curious what it is like, if anyone would care to share please. Thanks in advance.

    We just got back from Bally's today. I have lots to say about Bally's, but will just answer your question on the pool/hot tub (with some extra thoughts)

    We had a cabana reserved for yesterday, Saturday. Upon arrival at noon, the outside temperature was about 95 with partly sunny skies. What was so amazing was that the pool was empty, there were chairs available all over, and we were the only ones with a cabana. The other 15 or so went unused the entire day. This was Labor day weekend. Not good.

    The hot tub is right out in front of the cabanas. Unfortunately, unless I missed something, the "hot tub" is actually just a smaller pool. If there were any jets, there were not running when we were there.

    Also, the women's bathroom at the pool was disgusting. No toilet paper, no paper towels, and blood all over the floor. I told the staff at 1pm and when we left at 3pm the condition was unchanged.

    After staying at just about every hotel in Vegas except Bally's, this was a unique experience this trip.

    I bought a spa pass and used the hot tubs in there. Clothing optional woohoo! I come from hillbilly people. Skinny dipping is the only way to go. I wear a bathing suit around polite society so I don't scare people and livestock. But, any chance I get to hot tub or swim as God intended, I take it.

    I was at the pool at Bally's last trip and enjoyed it. I never used their washroom (went to the spa instead, and their ladies room was very nice). And I never walked past the bar, so I never even saw the hot tub.

    I would say if the hot tub is really important to you. Consider getting a spa pass. I'm notoriously cheap and I bought the 3 day pass for a week-long trip. You pass by the spa on the way to the pool. There's the salon and then the spa and then the little store where you can buy a reasonably priced pool noodle and then the pool. It's not far.

    The spa has 2 tubs. A cooler hot tub at body temp. And a hotter tub. The steam room was really hot when I was in there. I liked it but I can see it being too hot for some people.

    I had a light snack/breakfast every time I went in there. Very nice. Hanging out in a robe. Chitchatting with other ladies in there. Listening to the restful music. I had fruit, good trail mix, juice and water. The staff in there was fantastic.

    I would hit the pool first, then go to the spa. After the hot tub and steam room I would use their facilities to get ready for the day. My husband is bad for urgently needing to use the washroom within 2 minutes of me starting to blow dry my hair or put on makeup. And you don't want to go back in there afterwards. I hate sharing a bathroom with that man. Anyhow, no getting pushed out of the way at the spa. The shampoo, conditioner and body lotion in the spa are much better quality than in the rooms. I didn't bring a lot of my own stuff due to luggage restrictions. So, I was happy to use their stuff. They have a very nice vanity area with hair dryers and whatnot.

    Something for you to consider.

    I second the spa suggestion, my husband surprised me with a massage there and I could have stayed all day just relaxing. There is also a sauna in addition to the 2 hot tubs & steam room, and free fruit, trail mix & juices. You also get in & out privileges for the day if you purchase a treatment.
