    Hi all

    I have decided to move away from Caesars for my next trip in Oct (various reasons) and wondered if you could give me any ideas of the quality of pools (pool areas) in the CET hotels on the strip (not interested in Rio), I appreciate you can "google" and "you tube" the pools but 1st hand opinions are always valuable.

    Most important for us is the sun around the pool, if the pool is in the shade then we may as well just sit in our room.

    From what I can gather Harrah's pool is total crap so we can forget that one right away!

    To be honest if they're all crap we can go to Caesars pool, I have a few key cards lying around to get us in :)

    Thanks for your opinions.

    Nicest CET pool on the strip is Flamingo, but it tends to fill up quick. There are two pools: the smaller "upper" pool, and the bigger "lower" pool. (They have fancy names, I just can't remember and don't feel like looking them up). Upper pool allows kids, lower pool is 18+ (at least, that's how it was a few years ago). 18+ just means no kids running around to annoy you; tops are required for the ladies.

    After Flamingo, it's a bit of a drop off. I'd put Bally's and PH 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Bally's is behind the property. A more simple pool, old school, with a deep end that used to have diving. There are trees around for some shade, plenty of lounge chairs. PH has two pools, again with one being 18+. Bad thing about PH though is they are on the 6th floor, above the casino. So most of the lounge chairs are in the no-mans land in between. The only shade comes from being behind the tower or marque above the strip.

    I have not been to Linq or Paris pools, unfortunately. Others here can can fill you in on them, and slot them in where they feel they should be. Hope this helps a little bit.

    I've only done the Linq pool. It's ok. Not bad, not spectacular, but ok for a regular pool day.

    Paris pool is bland anyway. Nothing really interesting. Cromwell pool is nice but I don't know if it was part of a nightclub, as I never visited Cromwell.

    I like Paris pool actually. It's usually pretty tame, sometimes they have a DJ on weekends to liven it up. You have a great view of the strip/tower. There is never a shortage of chairs. All depends what you are looking for.

    Nothing wrong with the pool at Paris and I put it ahead of PH and Ballys. Nice in size, .plenty of loungers to go around and an abundance of sunshine. It's a nice laid back atmosphere without the loud drunken party goers.
