THEHotel at Mandalay Bay Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Huge suites, solid service, and fine art on the walls make THEhotel -- part of the Mandalay Bay hotel complex -- a sophisticated haven from the Vegas circus; but access to Mandalay's amenities -- including its pools -- means you can have a foot in each world. The rowdy pool scene at the Moorea Beach Club is open to guests 21 and over.

Best Hotel Pools to Go Topless in Las Vegas (1 of 12)

Huge suites, solid service, and fine art on the walls make THEhotel -- part of the Mandalay Bay hotel complex -- a sophisticated haven from the Vegas circus; but access to Mandalay's amenities -- including its pools -- means you can have a foot in each world. The rowdy pool scene at the Moorea Beach Club is open to guests 21 and over. Quieter but hipper than Mandalay Bay, THEhotel attracts a younger crowd that prefers urban chic to ornate luxury. At the Moorea Beach Club, poolside massages are available and "European" sunbathing (read: topless) is permitted. The entrance fee is $10 for women, $50 for men. Plan to get to the pool early if you want to snag a cushioned lounge chair. Otherwise, you'll have to splurge on the "opium beds," daybeds, or pavilions. Aside from the adult pool, THEhotel has probably the most kid-friendly pools in Las Vegas (among them a lazy river and a wave pool). Topless sunbathing is allowed on weekdays at the Venetian's rollicking Tao Beach adult pool.  If you want to tone your bikini body during your stay, the hotel’s fitness facility has a huge range of cardio and strength equipment (all with video monitors), an indoor climbing wall, and spinning and yoga classes. Like the Paris and New York-New York hotels, the 5,030-room Venetian is an enormous and extravagant tribute to a place far from the desert, complete with gondola rides and a replica of Saint Mark's Square. Located on top of Tao Asian Bistro and Nightclub, Tao Beach is one of the best places to see and be seen in Vegas. Celebrities that have been spotted at Tao Beach include Heidi Klum, Jessica Simpson, Jay-Z, and Michael Jordan. Seven poolside cabanas come with HD plasma-screen TVs and stocked mini-fridges. Preprogrammed iPods and daybeds are available for rent, while lounge chairs are first come, first served. On Saturday nights the pool is illuminated by a light show and 14-foot-tall fire columns. The Venetian has six pools, including Tao Beach, and guests are also welcome to use any of the seven pools at the Palazzo next door, which are connected via a pedestrian walkway to the Venetian pool decks. An elder statesman among the Strip's megaresorts, the 3,044-room Mirage relies less on thematics for its appeal -- opting instead to emphasize comfortable, well-designed rooms, an enormous pool, diverse dining options, and attentive service. As the name makes clear, topless sunbathing is very much allowed at the adult-only Bare pool. Drinks are served by bikini-clad servers, and live DJs play the latest in pop and hip-hop. At Bare, the price of admission isn't as steep as what other party pools charge -- $20 for men, $10 for women -- but watch out for the food and drink minimums if you want to fully relax: Guests face a $50 drink minimum to sit on a daybed. Cabana rentals come with a $500 to $1,500 food-and-beverage minimum, depending on the day of the week. Since 1966, the 2,419-room Caesars Palace has defined excess on the Strip -- a massive spa with Roman baths and elaborate mosaics and classical architecture around the pools. Topless sunbathing is allowed at the adult-only Venus Pool, which is also the scene of some parties at the Pure nightclub. First opened in 1946, the 3,626-room Flamingo takes its history seriously. The '70s decor, scenic Paradise Garden buffet, fabled tropical-themed pool draw couples, families, conventioneers, and occasional partiers. The Go Pool, an adult-only area with topless sunbathing, gets a fair amount of traffic (and fair amount of topless activity). The crowd is a bit older than at other adult-only pools like Bare at the Mirage. Admission for men is $10. Women get in free. Remote-controlled drapes in the giant rooms, eight premier restaurants, an 18-hole golf course -- the 2,716-room Wynn is one of the Strip's most extravagant luxury hotels. Topless sunbathing is just fine at the 21-plus European pool. It's a little livelier than the main pool, but the scene isn't nearly as raucous as it is at the Hard Rock Hotel's pool. The music is kept low, and you won't find many people dancing. Opened in December 2008, the 2,034-room Encore is about pure opulence; not surreal, family-friendly showmanship. The European Pool, restricted to guests 21 and over, allows topless sunbathing. The Island Bar at its center offers drinks, gambling, and airline-quality prepackaged sandwiches.
