So as I've stated on a few threads where I've had questions there's a group of us going to Vegas in June. Everybody is going to do their own thing so I'm not worried about staying where they stay, etc. But with a few of us, we looked at our CET offers and they are pretty nice in terms of comps. But we are all people who like to hang out at the pool and drink and relax. So does anybody have any experience with the pools in terms of how crowded, what's the scene like, drink service, etc... We aren't into the day club scene, we just want to relax and drink. We would probably get a cabana. The last time this group got together we did Flamingo (mainly because we were comped). We all had bad experiences there and thus, none of us will go back. The one thing that was a great thing was their pool. We all enjoyed it. That was the only positive. So here's a list of places we are looking at right now. If you have any experiences or thoughts, I'd love to hear it. Ballys - We can all get comped rooms here and a lot of people in a previous thread say "take the comp room!" However, looking on Google Earth, the pool doesn't seem too impressive. Paris - Same as Bally's, all of us can get comped, or very cheap rooms here. Pool doesn't seem anything spectacular other than it's a big pool. Planet Hollywood - This one is probably the most intriguing to us as it appears there are two different pools there. We asked to take a look at it but somebody said it was having some work done on it. Nobody is comped at PH, but the wife and I stayed there for New Years and enjoyed it. We would stay there again. Caesars Palace - Nobody can get comps here but obviously it's Caesars. Not sure if it is worth it or not. One of the guys stayed here for our wedding almost 5 years ago and said "Meh". My personal opinion is that it is cool, I do enjoy going there but damn it is always crowded. Cosmopolitan - I'm still waiting to hear back from our host on what she can do and this is the place I want to stay, but it all comes down to cost on the room. Boulevard Pool looks awesome, I think I went out and saw it one time but the wife had a broken leg. We went to Marquee one trip as well at Easter and that was cool (A friend from High School is a promoter there and she hooked us up) but I don't think that fits into this crowd. Aria - None of us are big MGM players as we don't have any MGM connections in Cleveland. We don't have any CET anymore either now that the Horseshoe has turned into "The Jack" which means "Jack Shit for comps in Vegas now". Mirage - Same as Aria, nothing special here... Mandalay Bay is a little too far away from Center Strip where we will do our damage. We know the pool is awesome there, my wife and I got married there. Thanks!
