Best Vegas Pool with shade

Going in August ,thinking Madnalay Bay or Mirage. Have been to MB , great total pool experience. How is Mirage for shade ? Considering staying somewhere else but really would like some shade. I know Flamingo has large pool area a lot of trees but unsure of the rooms. Suggestions ?

Mirage offers a little more shade than MB, mostly around the edges of the pool area. MB used to have more shade but MGM has removed a lot of the foliage to put in cabanas.

Flamingo has even more shady areas than Mirage. But very simply, everything else there is vastly inferior to Mirage.

All pools offer shade at some spot throughout the day.

Besides shade what does "best" mean to you?

A cabana might work for you - guaranteed shade.

Not a party scene, comfortable lounge, nice pool and surrondings but ability to get out of the 115 degree heat to some shade. Fewer very young kids the better ! A cabana would be nice but pretty expensive would rather gamble the money ! How are the rooms at Mirage vs. Mandalay ?

For a pool with comfortable lounges, shade and less kids head to Wynn - all the others will have kids, especially if on the week-end before school breaks for the summer and all summer no matter the DOW.

when is your trip?

BF is right, Wynn is the only place you can go to avoid kids and have a quiet environment. There are other adult pools, but they are meant to be more party scenes.

The Mirage rooms were recently renovated, but do not compare with those at MB. They are at least 100 sqft smaller, and the bathrooms are much smaller. And if it matters they don't have the floor-to-ceiling windows like MB.

Either going last week in July or first week of August , going to see what's going on in LV before i decide.

"...last week in July or first week of August ..." kids galore - sad to say.

Wynn all the way. With summer pricing rates should be OK. Any other place with a "good pool" will be overrun with kids whose parents think LV is a family destination.

Here's a quick list of the best Las Vegas hotel pools. I'm not sure which ones would have the best shade though.
