Service with a smile.

The LINQ's new pool is so fresh and so clean, y'all. And, you can get slizzard (not that slizzard, but since it's 21 and over, a little slizzard) by indulging in its poolside cocktail menu. Here's how you can stay hydrated, while drinking plenty of water, of course, poolside at the LINQ:

We Kinda Don't Want To Tell You How Nice The LINQ's New Pool Is

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109

The LINQ Hotel, a rebranded Quad/IP, keeps pleasantly surprising us. And, we're by no means complaining.

The hotel-casino's new pool deck opened to guests last weekend and, after a tour Thursday, we have no qualms about saying it's the most refreshing find of the 2015 pool season. (Sorry, Delano Beach Club.) The drab, concert slab of the past (and that awful faux rock display) has been ripped out and replaced with a super cute, beach-y vibe, from a textured deck reminiscent of white-sand beaches to the wooden planks in the cabanas.

Where You'll Find Delano Beach Club At Mandalay Bay

Where: 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Meant to send ripples through the Vegas pool scene this April, Delano Beach Club is still a work in progress. But, not as much as we'd thought.

For some reason or other, we assumed the coming pool experience, which will take over a portion of Mandalay Bay Beach, would involve extensive 'rip it out and mix it up' changes. A walk around the entire pool complex Thursday, however, yielded no grandoise new entrance, no construction equipment and no piles of dirt.

Wet 'n' Wild Is Gearing Up For Its 2015 Season

Where: 7055 South Fort Apache [map], 89148

Spring break is a couple weeks away (*puts down food, runs to gym*) and Wet ‘n’ Wild will be there for those looking to laze away the days. The park will open March 28-April 5 for spring break.

Wet ‘n’ Wild General Manager Takuya Ohki recently told the Las Vegas Review-Journal about the park's newest attraction, Slideboarding. It will be a waterslide gaming experience similar to Guitar Hero. Using a smart gaming system, guests will ride a slideboard and will hit targets for points as well as to unlock new levels. Slideboarding is a pay-to-play attraction so guests will have to shell out money unless they're a Gold or VIP season pass holder.

There's An Opening Date For The LINQ's New And Improved Pool

Where: 89109
March 4, 2015 at 5:53 PM | by | Comments (11)

After a major gut job reduced it to nothing but dirt and a rectangular hole in the ground, The LINQ Hotel is about to debut its brand new pool experience. (Despite failing to rename it the Qool. We thought that was a solid suggestion.)

Sun worshippers will enjoy a completely revamped pool deck beginning March 20. When that date arrives, guests will discover not one, but two pools. As we've previously reported, it will include the original footprint while a second, elevated pool has been added as well. The LINQ's website promises an extensive misting system throughout the pool deck as well as other amenities:

2015 may be the start of the "just for you" pool.

Delano Beach Club is expected to debut later this year at Mandalay Bay exclusively for guests of Delano Las Vegas. In its former incarnation as THEhotel, patrons shared Mandalay Bay Beach with guests of the larger hotel complex. Meanwhile, over at sister resort Aria, those who indulge in a stay in a luxe Sky Suites will be invited to dive into their own piece of exclusivity this season.

At Flamingo, A Cafe Closes And Other Changes

Is Flamingo launching an intensive top-to-bottom overhaul which will bring more room updates? Or, is what's happening around the center Strip hotel-casino meant to update, but not overdo? The big picture over at Flamingo is still unknown, but one thing's certain -- this dirty bird is molting.

Yesterday, the resort's Tropical Breeze Cafe marked its last day of service while the Paradise Garden Buffet scaled back hours last month to just 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Now, VegasChatter fan Jeff C. brings us our latest report on Flamingo, complete with images captured this past weekend.
