    Just back from a weekend Vegas trip. On Saturday 6-22 we did the adults only pool at Voodoo Beach. I think there's a name for it, something like "Ultra Pool at the Voo" or something like that. Entry is $20 for guys and $10 for girls. Didn't matter that we were staying at the Rio. For cabanas its a $100 minimum F&B purchase per person. The daybeds were $50 minimum per person. There was 3 of us so we did a daybed. Easily spent over the $150 required. There's a DJ but its not super loud. Fairly easy to carry on a conversation. Pool started off slow around noon but by 2 it had picked up. Lounge chairs are free and were gone by about 2pm. Kind of an older crowd, 30's and 40's but definitely some younger crowd also. That weekend there was some EDC fans as well. Fairly laid back vibe, def not like a crazy bigger pool party. We enjoyed it because were not into the craziness.

    On Sunday 6-23 we did Moorea Beach at Mandalay Bay. Directly next to Moorea is the brand new pool party called Daylight. It was packed out with blasting music and the whole cool crowd scene. Walked past it to Moorea Beach where they wanted $50 for guys and women are free. My host said she would walk us in for free but I didn't need that, my MLife Platinum was good for free admission for 2 guys, and our third person(female) was already free. Lounge chairs are free but there's very few of them, less than 20 probably but they had 3 available at noon. Lounge chairs by the pool edge are $100, and that's actual cost, not a F&B minimum. Also umbrellas are $100charge. I didn't ask about daybed or cabana prices. This is a topless pool and from the hours that we were there (noon-5pm) there were at least 15-20, probably more, women going topless. Most were late 30's and 40's and slightly overweight. But there was 1 porn star looking girl going topless and at least 5 or so young attractive early twenties girls.

    This is also a laid back pool with a DJ that doesn't blast the music. Most of the topless women at this pool were with their partner, except 2 groups of younger girls who only went topless laying out, not in the pool. The topless women in the pool all appeared to be swingers possibly. That's the vibe I got from the guys that were with these women, and some appeared to be exhibitionists. Stayed here till 5pm and had a good time! Most odd thing about this pool is armed security guards in street clothes occasionally walk around the pool?

    Todd, what time did you Hit Moorea on Sunday? We are going to give it a try in August and I wondered if it was super crowded later in the day so your report is perfect timing. We instead wondered if it would be better for an early 50 something couple to stay away.

    We showed up around 12:30 and it was fairly slow. Moorea is a small place but at 12:30 it felt half full. I think its a good option if you're early 50's, there were definitely a few couples in that age range. Most of the pool clubs close at 7:00, we left at 5:00p.m. and there was a good amount of people there. No lounge chairs available but a few cabanas and daybeds were available. When you get there the staff tries to seat you, and they were helping people set up towels along the ground near the pool later in the day.

    Enjoy! We are early 50s and love the cabanas at Moorea Beach Club.

    Nice to see this thread as I've been thinking about MB sometime for a trip, partially because of what looked like a pretty cool pool area at Moorea Beach on the MB website.

    Not sure I'll try it this trip as we're in town the same time as the I Heart Radio concert at MGM so that south strip is going to be busy and expensive.

    Thought about trying to get tickets for one night of the concert once the schedule of artists come out but I see last year they sold out in 8 minutes and then were going for $800.:confused2:

    Thanks, Dino.....another 50-something:wave:

    Sounds like Moorea is the Allegiant of pools. Add a fee for everything.

    We were thinking of hitting Moorea while at Mandalay on an upcoming trip and it sounds like its our speed except for the lack of shade. Is it impossible to get and shade without shelling out some money for bed/umbrella?

    There's really no shade anywhere. They do have a few 50 foot palm trees, so you might get shade for 5 minutes if the sun is directly above you, but otherwise no shade anywhere.
