    Things are always changing in Vegas. Is it true the only way to get a chair at the Ballys pool is to pay for it? Also Do they have gambling out by the pool?

    No....no cost involved....unless you get a cabana. No pool side gambling. Just a relaxing atmosphere....no party....

    A nice "deep end" pool.
    A rarity in Vegas !

    I think you can reserve a chair. I stayed at Ballys in both April and May and both times just before my trip I had an email about reserving chairs, cabanas or daybeds. Go to the Ballys website and click on things to do, then click on Blu pool and then click learn more. The next page gives you a place to click on to reserve a chair, daybed or cabana.

    Any idea what the price is on a chair? And what the heck is a daybed?

    A "day bed"...think in terms of a cushioned double-wide chaise lounge, with umbrella.
    A standard chaise ... plenty to go around. We were out by the pool by ten in the morning and it
    didn't really get 'crowded' until around one or so in the afternoon. Before that, however, you pretty
    much had your pick of where you wanted to park. As mentioned before, a very nice deep-end pool,
    so you're not standing chest-deep just to cool off. The cocktail waitress makes pretty regular rounds
    but be expected to drop a wee bit of folding green for a cocktail (though they are good quality).

    Is there one end of the pool that gets more sun earlier? I know if you go to the Paris pool when the open you need to be on the far side of the Eiffel Tower to get sun, the rest is still shaded. I'm wondering since the Blu pool is on the other side of the hotel, it may be nice and sunny all day.
