We have stayed at Bally's two times now and are thinking a different hotel for our Vegas trip come September (Mon - Thur.). We really enjoyed the pool at Bally's as it is laid back and we could find some shade with no problem. We like to get up around noon and then hang around the pool until 5 pm'ish and then head out to the strip. We are looking at the Flamingo this time as they are about the same price as Bally's and they seem to have a huge pool. Questions are this..... 1. Is it easy to find a spot in the shade at the Flamingo pool? 2. No extra cost at Bally's for the pool, does the Flamingo charge extra for this? Thanks all!
