    Easy one for me... the Hard Rock pools! Couple are loud and bawdy, one is quieter and a bit more upscale and one (the round one) has a downright exclusive feel. Even the small one at the SkyBar is cool with the clear bottom. The grounds are lush and always well maintained and the scenery (not talkin' about the trees here) is always top-notch.

    My second choice in Encore Beach Club, though that has a more "club" feel to it... I prefer the "wide-open, anything goes" feel of Hard Rock, though Rehab Sunday's is waaaay outta my league... that's just insane, but more power to the youngsters who fill up the joint.

    We loved the pool options at the Ritz, with the lake "pool." Not sure what the new kids are doing out there in that regard. But fave would probably still be JW Marriott's.

    Bally's. It's one of only 2 remaining hotel pools on the Strip to have a deep end and the max depth is 12'. I also like the vibe there and it's never been overly crowded when I was there.

    Don't mind paying the $30 as long as it means there are no screaming 10 year olds running around.

    In that respect, Wet Republic or Encore Beach Club.

    The Flamingo's!

    We thought Bally's pool was lame, and that PHo's pool was too small for the size of the hotel!

    Moorea Beach Club - no one under 21, topless, music, and great CWs - what could be better?

    Red Rock is great and probably my favorite. Caesars has a cool vibe, and I have been known to enjoy the Golden Nugget on occasion. The Nugget would be great if not always so crowded.

    I'm pretty sure the 21 year old guidos you find at those 2 pools are the same as screaming 10 year olds.

    Of all my trips to Vegas I've spent 10 minutes at the Excal pool. I don't understand the concept of sitting around a crowded pool and paying ridiculous amounts for drinks. I can do that at home, and preferable be around a lake/river.

    I have only visited the PH, NYNY, Flamingo, Ballys and Monte Carlo pools. I def enjoyed the Flamingo and Monte Carlo as party pools. Monte Carlo and Flamingo were the best if you want the party type atmosphere. Ballys and NYNY were great for just relaxing and nursing a hangover. PH, I cannot think of anything good to say about that pool. I love the resort, but wont stay in the summer because of the pool.

    I really like Aria's pool. I am more for a nice quiet atmosphere and you can find that there. They have several pools and if you don't like the vibe of one, you can move onto another. Mandalay Bay is also pretty nice. I enjoy the sand and the wave pool.
