The Mirage at Hard Rock

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, is now owned by Hard Rock, but so far the pool is still the same. It 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!)
