    Please tell me about the Flamingo Pool. How many are there? Is drink service available? Is it busy in mid-April? How early do you need to get there to secure a lounge chair? Are cabanas available and if so at what cost?

    Thanks for your help.

    I never had an issue getting a lounge chair, now prime spots were booked. I have only been during the summer months though. I know in the Go Pool there is drink service.

    They do have Cabanas but I am sorry I do not remember the cost.

    Hello Mr. Craps,
    My information is about 4 years old, but as I remember it, there are 2 pools...the 'main' pool, which is very nice, good sized pool with waterfalls, etc., and a smaller (used to be adult, but I think they changed that) pool. I have been there in mid April, and yes, the main pool was rather crowded each day we were there. I would say you would have no trouble getting a chair up until 10, and possibly until 11. After that, hope that someone who got there eary decides to leave. They DID have drink service, but as I recall, there were so many people vs the number of waitresses, it was a bit slow. Afraid I can't help with the Cabana question. Good Luck!

    Your best bet is to call the pool and get pricing for the cabana rentals. Rates vary and are less expensive during the week compared to the weekend. You can rent with or without bottle service. Once you book your cabana, you can reserve your cabana location the day before
    If I remember correctly, the pool opens at 9 and if you aren't there when it opens, most of the prime locations are taken and won't see much sun until after 10ish. You should have no problem finding any spot until about 10:30-11am and then it gets sketchy.
    Drink service is available but it is much quicker to walk over to one of 2 bars and order your drinks. They do have drink specials until 11am. They like to free pour nice and long and appreciate tips. A couple of bloody Mary's before 11 and you've got a buzz going already.

    I was there last summer; when you go in the gate at the pool, you have two choices: the left choice goes up to the smaller pool. This used to be the adults only pool, but it is now considered the "family" pool. The choice to the right is the 21 and over pool. This is the larger "main" pool. As others have said, it gets crowded pretty quick. If you don't mind getting a seat that's tucked far away from the pool, show up whenever you want. If you want a "prime" location, show up before 10. Though April may be a little slower, I do not know.

    I was just there Saturday and Friday. Both days we got there by 9:15 and the line was 30-50 deep to get in. Mainly this is because they look through every bag extensively and argue with half the people about dumping out water or some other beverage before going in the pool. By 9:30-10 every lounge chair has a towel on it. Most are just from people putting them there to save the chair for later then going back up to the room or eat breakfast. It will look like there are a ton of open chairs but many are kinda taken. We rented a daybed on friday. Mainly because it was only 150.00 and you have to spend 150 in food and beverage. You could sit 4 people on it easily. More if only 1-2 at laying down the and rest are just sitting. It was poolside so easy to sit on the edge of the pool and it has a safe. So money well spent since we had 6 people and 2-3 would be playing craps at a time then rotate to hang at the daybed and pool. 4 buckets of corona's got us to 160.00. And the other drinks were free while playing craps excluding tips. Service was great at the daybed and the table games also. Saturday we didn't rent a daybed and the only was you could sit 4 people by each other was to sit towels on the cement. I just played at the tables all day but it was packed all day.

    Voltron12,

    Do you know the general price difference between day beds with/without cover? And, who do you really speak with about this rental?

    I've been to quite a few pools, the Flamingo pool is the best in my opinion. There are two pools, but the other pool are for children, you'll be at the go pool. It is always busy, always. If you want a lounge chair, you HAVE to wake up and be in line when it opens. People place towels down, and it's almost impossible to get a chair if you show at noon. Cabanas are available, you have to call ahead to reserve them. The last time I checked, it was $350 during the week, and $550 (Fri-Sat). Here's a tip, get a cabana on Thursday, it's $200 less, and still has the "weekend" vibe.

    They put 1 craps tables outside, but it's only during the really hot months. May/June/July/August, it's the only way to justify the costs, according to the pool manager. The pool is a blast, trust me.

    I'd say the drink service was acceptable

Your posts says that there was a craps table at the pool there in March? Is that correct? I'm staying at the Flamingo for 5 days (fight weekend) and craps is my game of choice (as long as the limits are 10 or less, then its Paigow). Also did all 6 guests have to be staying at the Flamingo or just 1 person??

    Yes, I was just there. It was out there Friday and Saturday all day along with at least 3-4 bj tables. It was 90 and 92 degrees those days though, so maybe that had something to do with them having them out there.

    You don't remember what the limits were on those tables do you? $5, $10, $15? and 6:5 or 3:2?

    All blackjacks are 6/5 and mins were 15 and 25. At least 2 15.00 tables. I think I noticed a 10.00 table also but that was early In the morning, and didn't look at the blackjack tables again later. Craps table started out a 5.00 min on Friday morning. It was raised to 10.00 min around noon. Saturday it was 10.00 min when I first started playing at 11 am so I assume it started there.
