5 Best Family Pools in Vegas for Kids

Escape the summer heat (and save some money) at these incredible Vegas pools tailor made for kids

Honestly, there is no better way to spend a hot day in Las Vegas than relaxing by the pool. It is refreshing, saves you money and it is fun for the whole family. Plus these are no ordinary pools we are talking about either. Las Vegas does everything extra and their pools are no exception. 

Just like every attraction in Las Vegas, every hotel is trying their best to outshine the competition. That means it is always a win for you! Most of the pools in Vegas are beautiful and luxurious spaces, but there are a few that just do it better.

Some Vegas pools are great for kids, and others just aren’t.

This article will show you the best pools in Las Vegas for families with kids. These outrageous pools will please everyone in your family, from baby to grandma. Think cascading waterfalls, wave pools, lazy rivers, beaches, cabanas, poolside restaurants and more.

Before you plan your next trip to Vegas with kids, consider our list for the best pools for kids in Vegas.

Top 5 Vegas Pools for Kids

Mirage Hotel Pool

The Mirage

The Mirage, 3400 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

The Mirage pool is, and has always been, my favorite pool in Vegas. It earns the #1 spot on our list of best family pools in Las Vegas. The first reason we adore the pool at Mirage is that it is completely isolated from the strip and lush with tropical landscaping, making you feel like you have escaped to an oasis. 

The Mirage pool is designed to resemble a tropical lagoon and that goal was definitely accomplished. The cascading waterfalls that you can swim under, shady palm trees and whimsical bridges make you feel like you are somewhere exotic. The kids will love splashing around this tropical island pretending to be mermaids and pirates. (That’s what I did as a kid at the Mirage pool, anyways!)

We’ve had a lot of fun with the kids at Mirage Pool over the years!

But not all the pool fun involves getting wet. That’s right, there is an amazing poolside restaurant to enjoy a meal among the waterfalls, and the Dolphin Habitat is located just beyond pool gates. Best of all the pool is always super clean with a pleasant crowd of Las Vegas vacationers.

Mandalay Bay

3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119

Just because you are in the desert, it doesn’t mean you can’t hit the beach. The Mandalay Bay Beach is basically an 11-acre water playground for kids and adults. You can partake in everything from a sandy beach and wave pool, to a lazy river and tranquil lagoon, making this one of the best pools for kids in Las Vegas. 

There are endless options for fun in the sun. Innertubes are allowed in the lazy river only and if you don’t have one there are some available to rent. There is a stage located near the wave pool for live music to make this beach vacation in Las Vegas complete. Mandalay Bay Beach also has beachside dining at the Beach Bar & Grill if you get hungry or need a break from the sun.

MGM Grand Pool Las Vegas

MGM Grand

3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

MGM Grand Pool Complex is definitely grand. This pool is tropical on a large scale with a huge lazy river, waterfalls, grottos, palm trees, and several pools for playing or relaxing. With 6.5 acres of pool property, your only stress is deciding where you would like to start the fun. Kids will love all the spaces to explore.

The pool is surrounded by retail shops as well as poolside dining, like the Cabana Grill. So there is ample opportunity to escape the heat if needed. The MGM Grand Pool Complex is nicely maintained and clean, which is definitely appreciated.

Luxor

3900 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119

The Luxor has one of the largest pool decks in Las Vegas at a staggering 125,640 square feet with 4 large pools totaling 19,000 square feet. There is plenty of space to find a place to relax for the day, including cabana rentals and a snack bar. 

As one of the best pools for kids in Vegas, little ones will enjoy splashing in all the water features, like waterfalls and fountains. If you are traveling with babies or toddlers, you will love the walk-in pool located near the snack bar. It is shallow, has a waterfall and perfect for little swimmers. Plus, from the pool you get an awesome view of the pyramid!

Now, this pool is called the Tank for a reason and that reason is because the pool is located near and within the hotel’s shark tank! Yes, kids get to swim alongside (protected by glass barrier of course) huge sharks! What makes this pool super unique and one of the best kids pool in Las Vegas is that it features a 30-foot water slide that soars right through the shark tank. Pretty darn cool right?

That’s a Wrap!

I know this isn’t a huge list, but is an honest list of the best family pools in Vegas that we love and recommend based on personal experience. That being said, there are many great and luxurious pools in Las Vegas that I didn’t add to this list, because they didn’t offer features that stood out as it relates to the needs of families with kids. I hope you enjoyed this list and it helps you make a better decision when choosing where to stay on your next Las Vegas family vacation.
