    I'm just starting to plan my Aug birthday trip. Prob looking at five rooms or more with people that have committed to going. One of my must do's is renting a cabana, most likely for several days. The problem I'm running into is where to make reservations, so that people that aren't staying where I stay can get in. I want to stay at Cosmo. I'm waiting for my Aug offer from Cosmo which I'm told won't come out till prob April.no one else can afford to pay for a room there. I've even gone as far as to look at putting people up at Jockey Club, which would allow them access to the Bamboo Pool. hubbie and I can each get rooms at CET. Dh can get the lowered tiered rooms comped, but his prices jump really high for the higher tiered hotels, ie Caesars, PH, Paris and Cromwell. I can get A free room at most MGM resorts. Trying to keep prices free or really cheap. Harrahs would work if we got several rooms and I could get comped at Mirage. Obviously I can't get non guests into the Mirage pool and the pool at Harrahs really sucks. The flamingo pool is just too crazy for us, so that's out. In the first time in many years, I'm actually thinking of RIO. Love their pool and their rooms. Room rates aren't crazy for people. The whole "off strip" things is getting to me though. Ballys is actually back on the table now, because of all this.

    Proximity is a huge factor, as I have some people who cannot walk long distances.

    Are there any casinos that let in non-guests if a guest is renting a cabana, mid strip?

    TIA

    Quiet a few of them will. We've had folks tell the staff at TI that "our group is at cabana #" and were let right in. Some other pools, someone with a room key had to walk them in. There are ways around it, but contacting the concierge at the hotels you are interested in about the pool arrangements (get the name of who you spoke to) will give you how they handle things better.

    I'm pretty sure most will let you in if you're rented a cabana. Paris and Bally's use to sell cabanas on Groupon so I figure that is a go there.

    I think hotel guests have priority on the cabanas at the regular pools. But I'm pretty sure some pools will let you rent a cabana even if you aren't staying there... but again high rollers and guest have priority.
    I'm not sure of your age group buy you can always do a day club... which I know for a fact you don't have to be staying at the hotel. I haven't checked prices recently but we scored a cabana at Tao beach a few years back for $1000 min food and beverage on a Sunday. When I checked marquee 3 years ago it was $1500 min. MGM's regular cabanas were $400 weekday and $600 weekend last summer... but wet republic was well over $2000 and Encore beach club was over $2500 for their cheapest cabanas.

    oh and I forgot to add..... for most places the minimum price is for total food and beverage charges but some are a flat rate for the cabana plus you have to pay food and bev on top of it... definitely ask before booking. And keep in mind if they say $400 food and beverage, you have to hit that amount prior to tax and gratuity.

    A cabana at Bare at the Mirage is usually $800 minimum spend on a weekday and you don't have to be a hotel guest. I find it's a better deal than paying $400 for a cabana at the regular pool which doesn't come with any drinks or food.

    I've done the MGM cabana rental several times, you don't have to be a guest and the associated cost is your minimum food/beverage charge. Wet Republic is so loud that we didn't need to be inside the day club. Plus the lazy river is there too.
