I’ve changed my mind since last review ... Just no no no to the crowd. Paid approx $135 for day pass for two, another $75-80 for lunch and drinks. That’s no problem ...except some of the food was inedible, and only stayed four hours. I...More

Gabriel at the H2O pool bar was excellent. He provided wonderful and quick service! The pool was packed during the day and he still provided excellent service! I totally recommend him as your bartender.

Do not go to the pool if you want a drink. Ever. Not even a water. Tipped $15 for two waters and a cranberry juice. Never got service again ... 😞 over 45 min waiting at the bar for a drink. Still waiting.

This is one of the best pools I have been to and would put it up against Caesars and Mandalay Bay. Service was a little slow, but there was only one bartender and it was a cloudy weekday afternoon.

I only drink beer and always run a tab so not sure of the price per beer, but I think someone said $7 for a 16 aluminum bottle. They have better deals on buckets too. R&C is about $11 for well
