    Caesars is nice. Giant area with several pools, and depending on the time of day, you should be able to find chairs shaded by one of the towers.

    Planet Hollywood is a boring pool with loud music. No shade.

    Paris and Flamingo pools I have not used yet. Flamingo has always had a popular pool, but it may be a bit of a party scene too these days. But if you are debating which hotel to stay at, Flamingo is below the standard of the others.

    Caesars best by far.
    Flamingo tropical but crowded & worst rooms of bunch.
    Paris pool isn't too bad.
    PH has wave pool now, attracts party crowd on weekends.

    Caesars is far and away the best of those listed. I like PH also. Not a fan of Flamingo or Paris.

    These questions are hard without knowing what your definition of "best" is. Do you want a party pool? Or a place to hang out and relax for a bit? Is loud music a plus or a turn off? Is shade from an umbrella okay, or do you want trees and things? Maybe a little more info would get you a better answer.

    I think Caesars has the nicest pool. I love the gardens and atmosphere at Flamingo, but I don't like the crowds or the hotel. I wasn't impressed with the pool when PHo was the Aladdin and wasn't too impressed when I looked at it after it became Planet Hollywood. I can't imagine a wave pool up there on the roof. ;) Paris is also probably okay, but I think that I recall shade is harder to come by there.

    There are about 7 or 8 pools at Caesars. Basically something for everyone. I preferred the Venus Pool because it's secluded behind bushes.....LOL.
    The Jupiter Pool is also secluded but it may require a Cabana, but the Caesar's Pools are among the best and have been for many, many years.
    I recommend Caesars Pools because of it's variety, you literally have about 8 pools to choose from and you can try them all out and decide which one you prefer.

    If it's shade you're really after, would you consider a cabana? Then you could go to almost any pool you liked and not have to worry about it!

    CET refers to Caesars Entertainment group, formerly known as Harrahs group. So refers to the casinos they own. Vs Mlife or Mirage/MGM group and the casinos they own.

    Caesars is tops, pool at Paris is decent and does offer shade depending what time you're there.

    CP pool is excellent. I like Flamingo also, but agree that it gets crowded. Not a fan of Paris (its just a big boring tub) nor Planet Hollywood. Someone mentioned a wave pool there?? I think they mean that PHo added a flow rider. Pretty certain there is no wave pool there

    Now that makes sense. Thank you very much. I'm just about getting used to some of the Las Vegas terminologies :)
