What Pools Are Open in Las Vegas During Winter? UPDATED 2024

What Pools Are Open in Las Vegas During Winter? UPDATED 2024

Share with your friends!

While pool season in Las Vegas officially runs from March to October, surprisingly over a dozen hotels have pools that they keep open and heated all year round. 

If one of your must haves on your Las Vegas winter trip is an open pool, I would advise calling the hotel ahead of time to confirm that it will be open during your stay.

Weather, maintenance and renovations make these pool hours subject to change. 

And while these pools are open, be aware that most services will be limited (loungers, serving staff, food & bars). 

Bellagio pool

You’ll also notice that there are very few hotels that are part of Caesars Entertainment (CET) that remain open during the winter.

So if you’re looking specifically to rack up some players rewards points, I would avoid CET.

Starting from north to south, here are the hotels on the Las Vegas strip that have heated pools and keep them open during winter so you can swim and suntan all year round.

Sahara

The Alexandria pool at Sahara is open year round, weather permitting (meaning it can close on random days due to poor weather).

This is their rooftop pool which offers great views and a relaxing vibe. 

Sahara also has a couple good-sized hot tubs at the Azilo pool deck.

Resorts World

Resorts World aims to have at least 5 or more of its 7 pools open year round, making this the largest pool area on the Las Vegas strip to be open in the winter.

Wynn

The Wynn pool deck remains open year round, but portions of it may be closed at random due to maintenance.

But this is a very nice pool, one of the best on the Strip and is worth checking out.

Both Wynn and Encore guests can use the pool area.

But if you’re planning to use the pool in the winter, I recommend staying at the Wynn since it’s a bit of a walk from the Encore down to the Wynn pool.

The Venetian

The pools at Palazzo and Venetian are heated and open during winter, but cabanas are not available for rent. 

The Venetian/Palazzo is the nicest hotel for your money on the Las Vegas Strip (in such a good location too).

Since the Venetian/Palazzo is a massive property, it’s the perfect place to stay in Las Vegas during the winter.

It’s not as much fun to roam the Strip in the chillier temperatures, and there’s so much at this property to keep you occupied for a few days.

It’s also a quick walk to the Wynn, which is a beautiful property to explore.

Because of the heated pools, nicest rooms and great location, the Venetian/Palazzo is my top choice for a hotel on the Strip in winter.

The Mirage

Private Oasis Pool

The Mirage main pool closes for the winter, but the smaller Private Oasis Pool remains open, but only heated to the low to mid-70s.

Caesars Palace

At Caesars Palace, only the hot tubs are open all year round.

Bellagio

Both the pool deck and the two larger pools at the Bellagio are open in the winter.

The Bellagio’s pools are the warmest on the Strip, heated to 84 degrees.

The Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan keeps only one pool open year round, the smaller Chelsea pool.

This is the pool you want if you’re looking for a pool party vibe in Las Vegas during the winter months.

Aria

The pool at Aria is open year round and they say it’s heated to 80 degrees, but many guests report that it feels much cooler than this.

I would avoid this one if you don’t like chilly pools!

That being said, Aria does have three hot tubs

Another reason to stay here during the dry winter months is because it’s beautifully decorated with lots of foliage.

For what it’s worth, I consider Aria a good alternative to Bellagio if you can’t afford Bellagio’s room rates.

Waldorf Astoria

The pool at Waldorf Astoria remains open year round and is a wonderful choice for those looking for a quiet and low key pool atmosphere.

This is a higher end hotel, so the pool doesn’t seem to get used very much in the cooler months.

You might have it all to yourself.

Park MGM

Park MGM keeps one of their two pools open year round. Which pool may depend on maintenance schedules and weather. 

Hotel guests can enjoy at least one of the heated pools left open during the cooler months.

And this hotel also has a large jetted hot tub open year round.

It’s also worth noting that this hotel and casino is smoke-free!

These hotel rooms are a little more on the cheaper side compared to Aria, Vdara and Bellagio, so the Park MGM is a great choice for being center strip with a pool in the winter.

MGM Grand

The main pool at MGM Grand is open during the winter months, but the remaining entire pool area is closed, including the lazy river.

MGM is also one of the best hotels with a pool for families with kids (read 8 others on the list here)

Mandalay Bay

The main pool area closes, but typically one pool is kept open during the winter.

This is usually the Moorea pool, which is quite small.

But the good news is that this pool is adults only and top optional during the summer months.

So if this usually deters you, you can be at ease over the winter and check it out.

Inside tip: if you’re staying at the Four Seasons (which closes its pool over the winter), you can use the pool at Mandalay Bay for free.

In downtown Las Vegas, the following hotels have pools open year round:

Circa Resort & Casino

The Circa Hotel has the best pool open during winter in Las Vegas, and it’s the warmest!

The cool thing about the pools at Circa is that they’re all a different temperature.

The pools at Stadium Swim are kept at 94 to over 100 degrees every day.

So your pools range from a nice warm bath to hot tub level heat.

It’s also worth mentioning that this hotel (including the pool) is adults only and patrons must be 21 years of age or older to be on the premises.

Perfect choice for a winter couples getaway!

Inside tip: even if you’re not a guest at the Circa Hotel you can still swim here for a fee – you just buy a day pass.

Bonus inside tip: if you’re staying at the D Hotel, they give you admission passes to use Stadium Swim for free.

Plaza Hotel & Casino

The Plaza Hotel’s rooftop pool and hot tub are open year round for guests.

Sometimes there’s also a food truck at the pool on weekends during the winter months.

This is a nice option since most pools open in Las Vegas have severely limited food service.

This is a great choice since the Plaza has recently undergone significant renovations.

Inside tip: there are also 12 Pickleball courts on the rooftop near the pool! Hotel guests can reserve courts for free, and free lessons are offered every Saturday.

The following off-strip hotels in Las Vegas have pools open year round:

Tahiti Village Resort

When you want to be surrounded by lush greenery instead of concrete, Tahiti Village Resort has you covered.

The longest lazy river in Las Vegas is heated to over 80 degrees and is open year round, as well as two hot tubs (one of which is adult-only).

Inside tip: the resort offers a complimentary shuttle to nearby grocery stores 3 times a week so you can stock up on supplies (as well as an hourly shuttle to the Strip).

Tuscany Suites & Casino Resort

Tuscany Suites is one of the best hidden gem hotels in Las Vegas.

Located on Flamingo Road, it’s a short 15 minute walk to mid-Strip.

Not only are hotel prices reasonable, there’s a main lounge pool & hot tub that are heated (pictured above), as well as a lap pool and additional hot tub in the gym area.

Both pools are open year round.

Tuscany Suites is the perfect hotel for being close to all the action on the Las Vegas strip, but having a quiet oasis to escape from the hustle and bustle when you need to.

Tip: there are cocktail servers at the pool here, so you can still enjoy poolside drinks (cheaper, too)!

When Do Pools Close for the Season in Las Vegas?

Most pools in Las Vegas close for the winter by mid-October.

You might get lucky with a few pools that choose to stay open until the end of October, but by November, all the seasonal pools will close until March 2024.

The pools mentioned above will are open all year round.

The reason most pools close is because of cooler weather, but also because of staffing issues.
