    good evening all!

    My wife and I will be at the mirage in two weeks but I have a bunch of comp offers from Total Rewards as well. I really like the Mirage pool, but for a more party atmosphere one day would it any value to trip to book a comped room (king studio suite or Go room) just for access to the Flamingo adult pool Sunday or Monday?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I was there this past Sunday through Thursday . It was full but not packed. But it was also 112 or so.

    I haven't been to flamingo pool, but I can assure you that mirage pool is plenty nice. It probably is one of the top pools on the strip. So, why bother? Especially given a lot of negative remarks about the flamingo lately on this board.

    Or you can just find a room key lying around in the casino and sneak into the pool like that.

    Unless it's changed, Flamingo doesn't check most of the time.

    Agree with others that Mirage pool is fine.
    If you really want a party pool just pay and go to EBC,Liquid,Wet Republic or one of the others.

    Go Pool is ok but I would stay put. No need to just switch for a day with a comp just to switch back.

    They looked at our key but didn't check if it was valid or not.

    It's what, $25 to spend the day at a fun pool on vacation? If you want to go, go. Flamingo is a higher energy scene than Mirage. I prefer the pool at Mirage but obviously, lots of folks like Flamingo.
