Visiting downtown or off-strip Las Vegas allows for more budget-friendly accommodations, drinks, and transportation.
While there are excellent options for hotel pools in the central Las Vegas Strip area, like Stadium Swim, there are many available pool locations in the downtown and off-strip area that are as appealing even without a lazy river.
You can both stay within your budget and lounge by beautiful pools.
Below are the best Vegas pools in the downtown/off-strip area.
Best Vegas Pools Off The Strip and Downtown
Red Rock Casino Pool – Red Rock Resort
The Red Rock Casino Pool provides a poolside gaming experience and a relaxing pool deck to hang out on. There are multiple gaming tables (like Blackjack) nearby that can be used. A café is available near the pool for both eats and cocktails.
The pool here is both kid and adult-friendly. You can purchase daily tickets for entry. Children under three years old can access free admission.
Other benefits include daybeds and cabanas for rent. Cabanas include misters, pastry/fruit plates, and private cabana costs. Chair-side service is available around the pool as well for all seating areas.
Circa Pool – Circa Las Vegas
A standout feature of the Circa Hotel Pool is the 143-foot HD screen visible by all six pools. The pools are laid out between three levels, which include a rooftop pool.
This location touts itself as an Instagram-worthy spot with selfie walls available for picture-taking. You can rent multiple swim-up bars and cabanas.
This pool complex is open year-round, and lounge chairs, daybeds, and cabanas can be rented. Hotel guests can access the pool earlier than those with day passes.

M Resort Pool – M Resort
M Resort Pool is another excellent family-friendly location. There are two pools; both have infinity pools as well as two hot tubs. The deepest part of the pool is 3.5 feet making it perfect for children to swim in or for adults to lounge in.
The palm trees and tropical plants add a tropical island vibe which creates a relaxing atmosphere. Both bottle service and regular food and drink services are available near the pools.
Cabanas and daybeds can be rented for VIP service. If you’re staying in the hotel, you have free access to the pools. Those who are not staying at the hotel can pay a $10-$25 fee per person depending on what day you are using the facilities.
Green Valley Ranch Pool – Green Valley Ranch
The pool at Green Valley Ranch provides a highly relaxing atmosphere. You enter the pool using a sandy area, making you feel like you’re somewhere between a beach, a resort, and a hotel.
Excellent views of The Strip can be seen while lounging by the pool. There is also a poolside service for drinks and food. Palm trees and green lawns surround the pool area providing a serene feeling.
Cabanas are available for reservations here and include amenities like TVs, fruit platters, and dipping pools. As with most of the pools on the list, those staying at the hotel can access the pool.
If you are staying at a different location, you can still visit the pool by renting a cabana. The minimum age is 21 for cabana rentals here.
The Tank Pool – Golden Nugget
Head to the Tank Pool at the Golden Nugget for a luxurious experience. It’s named so because there is a giant shark tank (200,000 gallons) in the middle of the pool area. No other pools in Las Vegas have a 30 million dollar shark tank included.
There are 17 cabanas available to reserve, split between three different floors. Food is available inside the hotel and can be brought out near the pool.
There are also table games that can be played during swimming breaks. Cabanas, gazebos, and super cabanas are available for full-day rentals at The Tank.
The cabanas feature TVs, safes, and fridges, while the gazebos offer a spot to lounge out of the sun. Pool parties can be found at Golden Nugget during the summer, one of our favorite hotels in Downtown Vegas.

Tickets will need to be purchased for the Elia Beach Club. Imagine a concert combined with a pool/beach, and you’ll understand the exact vibe provided here.
