    The wife and I would like to book a day bed at the Flamingo GO pool. The hotel staff I spoke to over the phone were unable to 100% answer my questions and I have yet to receive a call back from the direct pool line.
    Anyways my question is there will be two of us, do you need to have 6 people or pay the cost for 6 people to rent the bed? Or is it 50 bucks to rent and then a minimum of 50 per person on food/booze even if only two of us will be using the bed. We are going on a Thursday if that makes any difference. Thanks!

    I just booked a day bed at the flamingo on Sunday in August for my husband and I. I suggest you book online. When I emailed and called, they quoted me a price that was higher than online.

    The price online was $50. That does not include food and beverage minimum. Each person must spend $50. Tax and gratuity on F&B was not included.

    They also have a $10 service charge and $7 processing fee. I believe in total it will end up costing us around $200 if we stick to the $50 per person F&B minimum. (Highly unlikely)

    I would definitely book sooner than later. When I checked back on the $50 day bed on Sunday they seem to have sold out and only have the $100 day beds left.

    I did exactly this on my last trip. Your experience with the staff on the phone is par for the course. You'll come to observe that Caesars Entertainment is a laughable failure when it comes to interacting with their guests. It's almost like they hire people based on their ability to be as unhelpful as possible. I had to chase up a pool host, and it was an exhausting task. I have the direct phone number of one if you'd like me to PM it to you.

    I was in the exact same situation and you don't have to worry about spending for six people. It's $50 for the rental plus whatever BS service charges they add on it, plus $50 per person who's actually there. So if it's two people, the F&B minimum is $100 - plus tax and gratuity. Don't worry, you won't be stuck with a six-person $50 each minimum if it's only two of you.

    The pool is excellent and the daybed is definitely worth reserving. You also get to skip the lineup for the pool, since daybeds and cabanas have a separate line from general admission.

    I did so online with no issues. You also get to bypass the line in the morning to get in the pool.
