Anyone on here stayed at the Bellagio?

If so, can you comment specifically on the pool area - on their website it appears to be really small and with little room around it.

I stayed last year at the Wynn wich had a brilliant pool area, but I can't afford Wynn prices this year so I looked around and spoke to some veteran LV visitors I know and they recommended the Bellagio, although they never used the pool at all.

I want to be able to laze around during the day before my nightly assault on the Roulette and Blackjack tables, but if I can't get a lounger cos there's a) no room and b)only a few available anyway, I'll be proper ****** off!!

So if anyone has visited the Bellagio and used/looked around the pool area, could you offer a comment on how small / how much space there is, and how many loungers?

Many thanks

stayed there years ago and it is a nice hotel.i don't think the pool area is that big but to be honest i didn't go out there too much.why not send them an e mail and ask them,they all seemed very helpful when we were there and i am sure they could give you the information you require.

not totally relevant but the MGM grand we got a poolside sunbed easily, but we only went out there once

blackjack and roulette is cheaper in the day and i dont fancy playing for megabucks so afternoon gambling was how we worked it

Yeah, lower table minimums in the cheaper/older hotels during the afternoon + guaranteed loads of free drinks, Versus high minimums, busy tables & not a cocktail girl in sight during the evenings of the nicer hotels :thumbsup:

Mandalay Bay isn't the best casino for free drinks & low stakes, but it's a gorgeous hotel & the 11 acre swimming/beach area is fantastic. There's loads of room, loads of loungers & there's even a slightly more exclusive private pool area should you want to pay a little extra.

Did you see if the Bellagio had any private Cabana to rent by the pool? They had them at Hard Rock when I was there with LCD TV and mini bar built in, maybe there are some at Bellagio too.

precisely, that said the $2 blackjack we was told about to get some cheap practice in never materialised :mad:

if your new to it try hooters or the tropicana for gambling about lunchtime to practice, cheapest tables down that end of the strip. or go downtown they are quite cheap there too. in the evenings on the strip expect a $10 minimum.

unfortunately most hotels you have to pay for the pool if you arent a guest so we stuck the the mgm grand one that once

Mandalay Bay has cabana's to rent. I had a fantastic view directly down on them from my room.

Back in 2000 we found a couple of $2 tables downtown but generally just spread out play around loads of different hotels on $5 tables. Luxor definitely had a $2 table during the afternoon. Evening's we just went with the flow but still managed to stay on $5 tables most the night. 4 of us got ask to leave a blackjack table at The Mirage one evening. We weren't doing anything wrong, we just weren't losing enough compared to the amount of free drinks we were consuming. They keep an eye on absolutely everyone in these places, not just the ones winning fortunes. We stayed at Tropicana on this trip - not the nicest hotel but very cheap & in a great location.

Went back in 2003 & stayed at Mandalay Bay. Nice hotel but struggled to get any free drinks & the tables were generally $20 minimum. Didn't spend much time in the hotel - spent most evenings in MGM or Luxor after covering the strip. In 2003 we noticed everything had shot up in price though, food, drink, gaming, everything was double.
