    I've never spent any time at a Las Vegas pool. Until last year, I lived in Arizona and so sitting by the pool in hot weather was something I did at my apartment, not on vacation. However, I moved to Chicago last year and I think I"m craving the Vegas pool experience I plan to go to Las Vegas on Memorial Day and stay for 2 or 3 days. I usually stay at Luxor and from what I've seen, their pool looks nice.

    What should I expect for a Vegas pool experience? Is Luxor the best choice for a south strip MGM property? How ridiculous are the drink prices and can you charge them to your room and just tip with dollar bills?

    Mandalay Bay has the best pool complex on the south Strip. There's a wave pool, a lazy river, and Moorea Beach: a 21+, top-optional club pool. They are also opening another day club this Spring in what used to be the south lagoon. Plus, they have numerous cabanas scattered throughout the pool complex.

    Enjoy your upcoming trip!

    Monte Carlo has another nice pool. The one at NYNY is nothing special at all, plus you have a lot of noise from the roller coaster.

    Any word specifically on the Luxor pool(s)?

    With all the complications of my booking I might go completely out of the box and stay at the Luxor.

    How's the Tropicana pool? I've never stayed there but have heard they have renovated everything including their pool.

    I usually stay at Mandalay and we are thinking of going in June. If we get a Cabana, what is involved? How much do you pay for it, can it be comped, what do you tip the attendant, etc?

    Mandalays is nice for sure, but I actually have come to prefer Luxors after several visits to each, mainly for one reason, they have an adult section that is not a toptional area. The Cabanas, chairs and such cost far less as well and the drink service is FAST and cheaper. Too bad next trip is back to THEHotel LOL

    If you look on the Mandalay Bay website, you can see the features and amenities of the various cabanas. I'm not sure if the website shows prices or not - but I'd figure on a minimum of $400 to reserve a basic cabana on a weekday, more $ on the weekends. Of course, larger cabanas command higher prices. The price includes water in your fridge and sometimes a bowl of fresh fruit. You also have a dedicated hostess for food and beverage orders. IIRC, they put a standard gratuity on the tab, but we add to that if the hostess is above average, particularly helpful, etc.
    Yes, we charge the cabana to our room so it can be comped at checkout.

    If you get a cabana day of it, can be charged to your room and potentially comped. We usually get one on a weekend so we book in advance to ensure we get one, in this case you have to prepay
