Food/drink prices

My wife and I are heading out late June for our 10 yr anniversary. Trying to decide which hotel. Deciding between Bellagio, Mirage and Monte Carlo. Looking for a nice room, great pool and good location. Is the food and drinks more expensive at Bellagio then Mirage then Monte Carlo. My main concern is breakfast and lunch by the pool. I know Cabana prices are higher. Trying to figure out the best way to spend our money. Staying for four nights. The frugal part of me says Monte Carlo and spend money on nice restaurants and plurge on other things. The good husband says Bellagio since it is our 10 yr and her first time to Vegas.

I have to agree to the husband... For a 10th anniversary..... Bellagio it is!!! Great room, great pool, great service and great restaurants. It's expensive compare to the other 2 hotels but you sure want to have a great memory about it!!!

Yes Bellagio will have more expensive food options, Monte Carlo the cheapest (MC has a food court). But you could easily tram to MC from Bellagio. Mirage has a great (although crowded) pool and would be the middle option in cost.

Having stayed at all three hotels, Bellagio, Mirage and Monte Carlo, Bellagio gets my vote for a 10 year anniversary stay. And if it is the wife’s first trip...staying at the Bellagio will ensure that she will want to return.

Cheers!

Yes food and beverage prices are a little higher at Bellagio. But it will only be $1 or $2 at the pool. Drinks at all the pools are over-priced, so you may pay $16 for a drink at the Bellagio pool, probably the same price at Mirage, and maybe $14-$15 for that same drink at Monte Carlo. And in fact, it would probably be $14 at Flamingo and $13 at Ballys. As I said----all over-priced.

So I certainly wouldn't let this be a factor in your hotel decision.

I'd agree with ktinca that food and drinks at the pool are expensive everywhere. While eating by the pool is fun, you'll pay a high price and have few options. You might think about leaving the pool area is the cost is an issue.

That said, there are no cheap places to eat at Bellagio. Mirage has several cheaper choices (BLT Burger, California Pizza Kitchen, the Deli who's name escapes me). Monte Carlo has a food court. Venetian and MGM Grand also have food courts. MGMs is very near the pools.

IMO, you cannot compare Bellagio to Mirage or Monte Carlo. The first location is high end, whereas the other two don't compare, imo, and the prices reflect this. Almost anywhere you go in Vegas, food/drink prices are high - and many places aren't worth the cost if you like good food.

My vote is also for Bellagio - or The Vdara Hotel, which is next door. We stayed at the Vdara in December and enjoyed seeing the Bellagio fountains during the day & evening. To save money, bring your own wine or booze to the hotel and make a drink in your room to save money. And many people bring their drink to the casinos, but the hotel will charge you for the glass if you don't bring it back. Or buy plastic glasses, then you don't have to worry about it.

I also brought coffee and made it in the room, plus we got bottles of juice for the morning. So much better than having to dress and go downstairs for coffee.
