    I'll be there the end of May.

    I figure it'll be the weekend. Also a daybed.

    There will be at least 9 of us. What is the cost per bottle?

    We will be there all day with waterproof cards.

    I just saw a post from last year remarking a quote for $850 for a weekend cabana and $400 for a daybed. I am also 100% positive that Flamingo makes that a rental cost, NOT food/drink minimum like most hotels. I believe they throw in a bottle of low end booze (Smirnoff maybe). Prices probably depends on the business level of the weekend.

    A shame really..even Cosmo does food/drink minimum on their daybeds/cabanas.

    Looked into Flamingo for our July trip last summer and it was $400 rental, 1 bottle of Vodka and 3 mixers. Nothing else included, it is not a F&B minimum. That alone made us get the cabana at Monte Carlo.

    The site says

    I know we'd want a daybed as well.

    Busyman,

    My counter against Flamingo has always been for $400 on weekdays, somewhere between 600-800 on weekends you get that which you posted, where anywhere else we have gone the F&B min covers the "rental" of the cabana, daybed, etc.

    Why should I drop $400+ and then run a tab for drinks and food on top of it? You can't bring food in and you're staying the whole day. You're paying 2 to 3times what most pay for a room to get a cabana with nothing but a fruit platter, some water and a bottle of vodka, rum, whatever from say 10am to 6pm at Flamingo.

    Personally there a lot of better options out there. I have the Monte Carlo pricing from last year when we did it and I posted it on the discussion on here about strip hotel pools a few days ago as a response.

    Agree, any hotel will let you in to do daybed or cabana even if you are not a guest. There are times where I would like to do the Flamingo pool when I am not a guest but I won't pay $25 a person and definitely won't pay a "rental" cost. You can go to the Cosmopolitan BLVD pool and get a daybed for $200-300 food and beverage minimum and be right in the water. It may not be a white trash bash like the GO pool but its a good day at the pool but good drinks and food. Pitchers of any drink are $50. You get 6 per pitcher usually.

    Monte Carlo like the guy above mentioned is a good option also. Wave pool, lazy river. You can also do MGM as they do a F&B minimum and that pool is always action packed.

    How do the pools at Caesars compare? Do they do cabana and daybed rentals? Do they have a "rental" fee or a F&B minimum? Is it only at the "adult" pool? Thanks.

    Venus is the only topless allowable one and all the pools 21 and over.

    It is a rental fee they charge you and then you buy the food and beverages on top of that.
