One of the reasons Las Vegas is such a popular vacation spot is because of its climate. If you want a holiday with heat, visiting America’s most popular desert oasis (especially during the summer months) will not disappoint. Everyone knows a real vacation includes rest and relaxation and the hotels and casinos in Las Vegas want to provide this to you, and then some. Swimming pools are a necessity in providing this comfort amidst the heat, and in true Las Vegas style, these pools are definitely worth the visit. Here are some of the most stylish pools in Las Vegas to help beat the desert heat.

If you want a taste of the Caribbean then the pools at the Flamingo are the best in Vegas. The lush jungle plant life surrounds two, 80 ft. long pools. These pools are also family friendly so the kids can play while you can relax in the sun. In order to keep yourself refreshed, there are swim up bars and even swim up Blackjack if you need something else to do while working on your tan. The Flamingo also features the GO Pool, which is for adults only. Located on the higher terrace of the Flamingo Hotel, the GO Pool is equipped with plasma TVs and cabana rentals for your group.
