    During my last Vegas trip, approx. 3 years ago, we were able to use other property pools when staying at a CET hotel free of charge. Anyone know what the current policy is?

    I don't think that is possible. There are times when neighboring properties can use other properties pools, like in the winter when Bally's pool is closed you can use the Paris pool. Not sure if people staying at Cromwell are allowed to use the flamingo pool or not as Drai's takes over the pool a lot.

    Now, having said that, there are some CET pools that you can pay to access even if you are not a hotel guest, and some where keys are not checked upon entrance, but simply staying at a CET property does not grant you access to all CET Property pools.

    I stayed at Caesars last July and they've got a big sign by one of the pool doors that says something like: "All Persons Over 21 Are Welcome At The Fortuna Pool." Law states that all gaming areas must be open to the public. They'll ask for you to flash them a room key but if you tell them you're there to gamble you shouldn't have any issues. I guess they technically could follow you to confirm that you're indeed there to gamble, but it seems really unlikely.

    The pool hopping thing was one season only and didn't include every pool even then. The pool season rules should be updated on each hotel page soon, probably by April. The lesser pools will be pratically open for the public and the better ones will charge for admission, even if you are staying at CET.

    only way to get free all access to every caesars pool is a 7* card, other than that you need a room key or a casino card given out while you wait for your room or pay the admission fee

    Linq pool is not open next week :nono: Can't find my notes, but I remember they said we can go to Paris pool. Harrah's is closer, I will try that one first.


    Why do some pools not open until March?? For those of us coming from the north, even low 70s is like 60-70 degrees warmer!!
    and next week looks like maybe upper 70s. :woohoo:

    Incorrect. If you have the Vegas VIP Access Card -- which you can get for $10,000 spend on the Total Rewards Visa per year -- you get access to all CET pools without a hotel key. I am planning to take full advantage of this on my next Vegas trip this upcoming summer.

    If a pool was an important part of my trip I would just stay at a place that has a great pool. Too much hassle for me to go to a different hotel to use the pool. Lithium is right, the VIP access card will do the trick. I have one and it's nice, but I don't use it for pools. If you have stayed at a particular place before and still have the room key (I keep mine) you could probably use it to gain pool access. Some places swipe the key to make sure it's active but most places you just flash it. Key designs change I suppose from time to time but it's not like they really look at it closely anyway.

    You can pay $20 ($10 if you're diamond) to use the Caesars Palace pools.

    Vegasvic how have you used the VIP Access card? I recently qualified and plan on using it for our upcoming trip and wasn't sure how valuable it will be other than cab lines.

    You can use it for free early check in and late checkout. Which is nice for me since I usually arrive in the morning and depart at night. There were also a couple of restaurants where I got to skip the line, I don't remember which one's they were.

    Oh, that's great! I had no idea that free early check-in and late check-out were part of the deal. That's really going to be nice for our next visit. Did you have to get the card at Caesars' Total Rewards desk before you could use it or would they accept the use of the letter Total Rewards sent until you got the card?

    i never payd for any pools i just go thats it and i dont know or will pay 10$ for a CET pool, i always showed my diamondcard(not roomkey) and i never had any problems, not even at the so called european pool at Caesars last year. only things you need to pay extra is the SPA at Caesars(20$) and the new linq Spa(10$)...
    i assume the vip aces card is similair to having a diamond card (certain perks like not standing in line at some buffets/restaurants and free use of most cet spas)

    I got the card, I'm not sure if the letter would work or not. It probably would.

    Its not free unless there is any promo running. CET guests has a minimal entry fee for some of the pools which is less than other guests who are not staying at CET hotels.

    My husband and I are both Diamond and both had to pay $10 last summer to use the pool at CP while staying at PH.

    You can show the VIP letter at check in. You can get the card at your convenience.

    Was that on a weekend? I got in free last summer with 3 friends using my VIP Access card. It was during the week though.
