    I'll be in the Cosmo next week but I have a question about the pools. I know of 3:

    Boulevard
    Bamboo
    Day crap

    I'm not in the douchbag set so the dayclub is out of the question. Which of the other two is "better"? I want to sit on a lounger, do some swimming, and order drinks. Good scenery in terms of talent would be a plus. Bamboo or Boulevard?

    It depends what u like. The bamboo is much quiter except for a few times when some kids were running around making noise. Its also a better place for swimming.
    The blvd pool area is however much bigger and more busy especially on weekends. It has great views of the strip as well but can get a little tricky getting chairs but i always ended up getting at least two in a row for the 10 days we were staying. Some part of the pool is really shallow and cannot be used for swimming and its only possible on the other half but only if its not to crowded. Both pools got good bar areas and ordering food is no problem either. But overall i prefer the blvd because of the scenery and since its more lively.

    I would definitely go with Boulevard. More people watching potential but not overly crowded, good drink/food service, larger space, etc.

    Also, if it's a weekday and you call in the morning, you can probably get a reasonable price on one of the cabanas, which are great. I paid about $250, but $200 of that is a F&B credit, which will come in handy if you're there for a few hours, since as la carte food and drinks are pretty steep. We weren't able to eat and drink the full $200 worth so they gave us 2 bottles of wine to go to finish off the credit.

    Interesting note on the cabanas. I was/am about to reserve one for our June trip for Monday morning and was quoted $300 (all F&B) for the Bamboo pool (We prefer more serene than "action")... wonder if that's too steep and we should wait?

    Boulevard!!

    We'll be there too next week. Not only is the layout cool for overlooking the strip, they have these huge daybeds out there you can use for free!! Plus you have the adult ice cream place out there, along with a couple of bars. They also have a pool table out there and a little shaded area with some TVs and little lounge chairs.Bamboo pool is a lot smaller and overlooks the interior of the City Center. NO contest.
