    I have called 3 times to try to reserve a cabana, i get voicemail each time i call, i have received 1 call back to my 1st message, they left me a message quoting the wrong dates, so i called back # they left and received there voicemail again. No call back, so waited 2 days and left another voicemail. Does somebody have a # to call to get through to somebody that i can rent a cabana from? Thanks!

    It took 4 calls to get them to call me back. Not a fan because the price quoted is not a food and beverage minimum with cabana but a straight rental fee for the cabana. Then you buy food and drinks all day. Decided on Monte Carlo for one day and Bagatelle for another as our low key pool days during our upcoming trip and the price quoted is F&B minimum plus cabana. Also hitting up Wet Republic and Encore on the weekend days. Still deciding about pools on Monday and Tuesday.

    You might want to consider walking down to Paris and renting a cabana there. They rent to people staying at other properties, which I'm doing on my next visit. I was sub $200 for everyday of the week.

    The pool isn't as nice, but they responded to me via email within 30 mins of my request for price. They do have good food and drink options there.

    Agreed - Flamingo should reconsider the whole "rental" price. Quite dumb

    Can anyone elaborate on this for me?? I called and got a rate of $400 With a bottle of absolute.. is there ALSO a F&B min charge? Thats the reason were not going to Monte Carlo, they charge $400 and a min F&B...
    This is for a Tuesday and its our last full day there, AND my birthday so I really want to do this but not if there are going to be extra fees. I was kind of hoping after a few days of heave gambling a host could get us a discount, has anyone done that?

    Flamingo is charging you $400 to rent the cabana and throwing in a bottle of vodka.

    Monte Carlo $400 F&B minimum means essentially that you get $400 to spend on drinks and food out at the pool. Regardless you will get charged $400, but essentially you get a $400 food and drink credit (of course if you spend more you pay for it).

    It is a MUCH better deal than the flat rental price that Flamingo, Caesars and Mirage do. You are paying $400 to get the cabana, and a fifth of vodka. Everything else you will have to pay for. Trust me, $400 in food and drink is a good deal of drinks/snacks.

    Ok, So I totally read my e-mail wrong. I see that yes, it would be much better to go with MC over Flamingo...and at MC I have the "Picnic By The Pool" from MyVegas... If I do get a cabana there, I am hoping I can use that so we dont have to pay for as much!

    Here is the info as emailed to me in June for my July trip this past July when we booked it. The price was non negotiable even with our Vegas game freebies we had. Hope this helps.

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for contacting the Concierge.

    I have attached the information and pricing for our 2013 pool season, which runs from March 7th until October 15th. The options are based on availability. We do not offer any half or part day rentals.

    Our poolside reserved areas are guaranteed by agreeing to a food and beverage minimum based on the type of cabana or day bed you choose. We charge the first $200 of your food and beverage minimum onto a credit card at the time of booking as a way to guarantee and hold your reservation. Your deposit goes directly to the amount of food and beverage you receive. There are no additional rental fees required.

    You will have up to 24 hours prior to the date of the reservation to cancel without penalty and receive a full refund. You will be required to pay the difference of the minimum above your $200 deposit plus tax and service fees and anything you order above that minimum.

    Please contact us at your convenience to advise to which poolside accommodation would best suit your needs. You may contact us via phone at 702-730-7010 to provide:

    · A credit card to secure the booking (a $200 deposit is charged to secure the reservation)

    · Mobile contact number

    · Number of guests

    The Concierge is available 7 days a week from 8:00am PST to 10:00pm PST and may assist with dinners, shows, tours, spa, golf tee times or any other special arrangements to enhance your stay.

    Cosmo's BLVD pool does F&B minimum also and honestly their Daybed rentals right in the pool are a good value. I was quoted $200 for a Weds and Thurs, obviously Fri and Sat are higher at $500 and $750 like any pool will be but Cosmo's BLVD pool is much nicer than Flamingo and Monte Carlo.

    Flamingo pool is more fun, but with charging flat rentals they wont get my money.
