    My buddies and I are thinking about getting a day bed here during our stay in July. Does anyone have any Pros or cons I should know about?

    Thanks :beer:

    The Palms isn't what it used to be, and Ditch Fridays falls into the same category. That's not to say you can't have fun, but it's well down the list of the best pool parties now.

    Also, most of their guest performers are of the hip hop variety, which may or may not be what you're looking for.

    Personally, I would suggest looking into Drai's, Encore Beach and Daylight.

    I would advise against it unless you are specifically looking at Friday daytime. In addition to Universal's suggestions... Marquee Dayclub is a great spot. Also Liquid and even Tao Beach can be fun, albeit on the smaller side. Fridays can be slow at the pools since a lot of folks fly in on Friday. So the smaller pools can have a better atmosphere and seem busy compared to the same number of people at a massive venue like Encore Beach Club.

    The last time I was at Ditch Friday's was the summer of 2013, which means I was not there last summer.

    I have always gotten a cabana there on the upper level. For me, the music can be really, really loud at pool level but on that second level of cabanas it is above the speakers so it is not as loud.

    It was crowded and packed, just like it has always been.

    I have always had a very good time at their pool.

    If you want the hot pool parties then you want Encore Beach Club, Marquee, or Drai's but I am willing to bet it will still be packed because on Friday non-hotel guests can go there for a cover charge.
