    This could have been asked already, but I couldn't seem to find it.

    I already have The Flamingo booked for 8/31-9/4, but that was just to hold the room....SO I am still looking at prices all around, I really want to stay at Flamingo bc of the pool, BUT If I stay at say...Harrahs can I get into the Flamingo pool without paying to get in? I don't know if it matters, but I have a Platinum card....Maybe talk to a host at the hotel I decide to stay at they could get something to work?

    ALSO- We plan on getting a cabana so if we do stay elsewhere and get a cabana will that include the entrance fee?

    Thanks!

    When I called to get a quote from Flamingo for the upcoming trip no fee to enter for the group if we got the cabana. All pools in LV if you get a cabana, daybed, etc. your entry is included. If you just want to hang at the pool, Flamingo does charge if you are coming from another Caesar's property. I thought she said $15 and $25 for non Caesar's peeps. Don't know if higher status helps, didn't ask. Not doing it there and you'll see why.

    My complaint about the cabanas is that the money you are spending just pays for the cabana. When I called it was $500 for the cabana or $600 with 1bottle of vodka or rum. Nothing else. So now you have to tack on the food and beverages all day on top of that. We have 7 going for that Friday.

    Now compare that to Monte Carlo. I can get a cabana there for up to 8 guests for $550 Fri-Sunday or $450 Mon-Thurs. The $550 I pay is for the cabana and is the food and beverage minimum. So I now have the cabana and $550 to spend on food and drinks.

    If my group was to spend $550 at Flamingo we would spend a total of $1050-$1150. Cabana cost plus $550 in food and drinks.

    We decided on Bagatelle for Friday because it is more low key and we are there for a week and have other bigger pool parties planned that weekend. They gave us a cabana for $500 as the food and beverage minimum. Odds are we will go over the limit but financially it is better to go to a pool that offers food and beverage minimums with the cabana, daybed, etc. than do one at Flamingo. I did ask about a food and beverage min and they do not do it.

    Sorry for the long answer but I hope this helps and you may want to look around before commiting to a cabana there.

    Actually if you are staying at harrahs you can get a cabana at any other harrahs property except Caesars. We reserved a cabana at flamingo last year and also this year the price is $500 including a bottle with the mixers water bottles all day, they bring over a cooler filled with bottles of water and a fruit platter. When you call to reserve you will always get a different quote so I suggest call flamingo and tell them you understand the price is $500 including a bottle and get the name of the person you reserve with

    I am with ya, I got a quote of $400 for the weekday with a bottle, $200 without...But I didn't read anything about food...so that helps.
    Then I get an offer from the palms and its MUCH better room rates and weekday renal was $150! I know its off strip but the Palms has a much better rep than the Flamingo! (much more popular for the young ones, I hate their casino)

    I did post earlier on here that I read a Vegas website that people are getting cabannas for less than $100 on weekdays AND weekends (if they have any left)
    by waiting til around noon-1pm and then asking to get a rate on one..which includes a bottle! I don't know, but I wanted it for my Bday, a Tuesday...so I think We might just book it right away...but I do kinda figure its the day after Labor day, people are probably leaving that day....hopefully.
