    Just come back from Vegas and our next trips are planned for mid april (pacman vs bradley) and 1 week before nfl season starts (31.8 to 5.9).
    We stayed at the Mandalay Bay the last summer trips. We enjoyed the pool the most.
    What are other nice pool areas to relax on the strip? We are not the "pool party people".
    Mirage? Luxor?
    TI looks small... Monte Carlo is very small.
    MGM looks like a "party pool area".

    Thanks for the help.

    Actually, it is not. There is Wet Republic party pool - but that is in that farthest corner of the pool complex. The complex is huge with lots of different pools. Really nice. This is the view from a cabana on the Producers Pool - South side of the complex. This is a weekday, so not a lot of people.

    Luxor is decent. I can recommend Flamingo as well as Caesars. Caesars Palace has my favorite pool complex as they're something for everybody there. You can gamble at the Fortuna pool, or go to the "European Dayclub" at Venus.

    The Mirage has always had one of the best tropical pool areas on the strip...Amazingly, with all the renovation MGM has done to de-theme the once tropical paradise, they've pretty much left the pool area in tact. The only change I saw when we were there last year is they removed the bridge.

    Luxor pool is pretty boring and bland. Much better options. MGM's is nice, Flamingo's too but usually packed. Caesars is very nice.

    I would pick Mirage

    Since I've only done MGM non Wet Republic pools and Monte Carlo I would go MGM.

    Tropicana actually has real grass...
    ...not sure of the "pool party" thing, though.

    I do like Caesars

    Bellagio has a couple different pools.
    Venetian has a big + small square pool(s).

    Mirage! The pool is enormous and has a nice laid back atmosphere.

    thanks for the answers. i think we will go with the mirage for 2-3 nights and then choose the other hotel between vdara, luxor, mgm, ph, flamingo and paris.

    the vdara has very good offers. but the reflections of the building can be a problem.

    I say Mgm and Mirage for a similar vibe as Mandalay Bay. But to be honest for the best adult pool go with the luxury hotels for the most relaxing atmosphere. Wynncore is my favourite and has an amazing pool area and their euro section doesn't allow kids and is just a great experience.

    I'd second Caesars Palace, they have a beautiful pool complex.

    I have been to a couple of pools
    I liked the mirage the best
    Caesars is also pretty cool but i had the misfortune once i wanted to go on asaturday( tooo crowded no place to lay down)
    The least prettiest is at the quad( former ip) but they had the best music:evillaugh
