USA Today and 10Best.com recently conducted a month-long "10Best Readers' Choice Contest" and the winner for the Best Hotel Pool--in all the country, not just Vegas--is the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Yup, that sound you just heard was our flask dropping under our desk.
The Hard Rock and its 4.8-acre pool scene beat out other contenders such as the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge--the wildly popular Colorado resort that everyone's been to at least once (sike)--and the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, which is actually is a very popular resort thanks to its 6-acre water park that includes a 650-ft. rapid river ride. Alas, it was no match for the Hard Rock and the scantily clad and very drunk attendees of their weekly REHAB pool party.
Speaking of going to REHAB, Johnny Drama (aka Kevin Dillon) will be hosting REHAB on Saturday, June 6 to promote the new "Entourage" movie, premiering today. He'll hit the red carpet around 3pm for photos and should make his way over to the VIP cabana shortly after that.
Frankly, we've never been that big into REHAB. We'd much rather chill at the just-opened Adults-Only Pool at The Stratosphere or take in the swank scene of the Delano Beach Club or go "happy chic" at The LINQ's new pool. We're not saying people won't be trying to get it in at these pool scenes--we are in Vegas, after all--but chances are they will be more discreet.
What about you? What do you think is the best pool scene in Vegas? Sound off in comments below!

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of February 16:
One pool that will be rockin' hard: Hard Rock will dive back into pool season starting March 6 when Rehab as well as Nirvana and Breathe pools open once again. Entertainment on tap for Rehab includes 3OH!3 March 21 and Sammy Adams March 28. Tickets for both start at $20 for ladies, $30 for gents.
Ladies, if sarongs and cover-ups never make it into your Vegas bag, why not flaunt what you've got in the hopes of scoring a jackpot that doesn't require you pour money into a Strip casino first?
Rehab will kick off its 2013 Bikini Invitational tonight at the Hard Rock. But, that doesn't mean you've missed your chance to sign up. Just head online between now and July 15 to create a profile. From there, it’s all about attending events and marketing yourself. A queen will be crowned at the end of July. The winner gets $25,000 and entry to the Miss USA State Pageant, but we consider ourselves, the viewers, winners, too.

We knew it was coming. Now, it's here, whether you're ready or not.
The last of Vegas' adult pools are preparing to pull the plug, but the good news is you still have a few more chances to enjoy Sin City's daylife. At the Hard Rock, Rehab will end the pool season gangnam style with an appearance by Internet sensation, PSY. Head there this Sunday, October 21 starting at 10 a.m. for one last fling. But, don't forget to get your dance moves down first.

VegasChatter fan Kingnormandy has a solution that could land you in that cabana after all and without having to spend all your cash on it, either:
Don't book a cabana in advance! Wait an hour or two by the pool get the lay of the land, then if a bunch are empty at 1PM go make an offer at the spa (where they are usually rented). This has worked at Excal(ibur), Flamingo, and Hard Rock. I paid $70 for a Cabana at Excal(ibur) two day in a row last summer, and got a huge discount with a group at Rehab on Sunday two years ago, so there are always opportunities. Obviously Saturday's are tougher, but if you wait it out, there are deals.

If this screengrab doesn't convince you to plan a trip to Vegas soon, this will -- the last of the dayclubs (save one) splash into the Vegas pool scene this weekend.
Venus Pool Club at Caesars Palace opens today. Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan makes its picturesque return tomorrow. And, Rehab at Hard Rock gets back into the swim of things on Sunday. (Don't forget about Beachlife, either.)

Rehab is the infamous Vegas pool party that keeps on giving... even if we may not want it to. But, if Rehab has become disappointingly tame for you, there's a new way for you to rock the Vegas pool scene.
The Hard Rock has three other ways for you to chill out this pool season, taking the typical
drunken Vegas weekend from two to four days, every week. Dubbed "Beachlife," things start every week with Summer Camp Fridays, featuring water balloon fights (what, no vodka filled balloons?), squirt gun battles (oh, sorry, ma'am. did you not want to get wet there?), and staff dressed in their campy best. Remember that one time in band camp by stopping by Fridays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Ladies and hotel guests will get in free. Guys staying elsewhere will need to hand over $20 bucks.

If your friends always try to make you go to Rehab, you won't have to start making excuses for two more months.
The most infamous pool party in Vegas won't return until April 22, making it one of the last -- if not the last -- to jump back into pool season. Las Vegas Hotel (LVH) already dived back into the daytime party scene on February 8. Meantime, Flamingo (March 1), Mandalay Bay Beach (March 5), Luxor (March 5), Liquid at Aria (March 15), and Encore Beach Club (March 17) will all make a splash in the coming days.

Even though it may not be as debauched as we love to insinuate and its TV show seems to be all dried up (altho, its infamy booty shakes on endlessly on truTV.com), the Hard Rock's adults only pool is still one of the places to par-tay poolside in Vegas.

Not only is today finally Friday (yippee!), it's also one weekend away until the weekend we've been waiting forever for - Memorial Day Weekend!
You know when even celebs are saying how amazing it's going to be that Memorial Day weekend in Vegas is going to be spectacular. There are literally a bajillion things happening up, down and off the Strip so make sure you get your sleep in over the next week. There'll be no time to rest during the extended party ahead. From Fatboy Slim at Marquee to UFC 130, there will be no shortage to the things you can pack into your schedule. Here's an extensive list that's likely just the tip of the mayhem:

The Hard Rock isn't quite through with Rehab just yet. Despite being accused of giving the resort a bad name, Rehab will return for its eighth season this Sunday, April 17. (It turns out you have to be a real Mainhole to get banned from the HRH.)
The pool party that's too much of the right amount of wrong isn't relying on a celebreality star to launch its first weekend back, instead its going with cold hard cash. If it's infamy won't get you down there, Rehab is hoping that $100,000 in cash and prizes will. Among the giveaways will be suite stays and VIP cabanas and all you have to do is grab as many blue balls as you can for your chance to win.
Sadly, the reality of the competition is not as raunchy as that sounds especially given Rehab's history. Instead, Rehab is hiring a helicopter to drop 3,000 blue balls over the pool. The balls will each have a specific text code and if you have a lucky one, you win. If you don't, chances are you can still get lucky in a whole 'nother way this Sunday at Rehab.

If you thought you had a few more weeks to get toned, think again. WET REPUBLIC will make the first splash of the pool season with a debut of a week from today.
MGM Grand's adults-only pool escape will welcome the scantily clad Friday, March 11. No word yet on who will be the opening DJ or celebreality star du jour.
From there, expect to get a lot of use out of that tanning lotion with the openings of BARE at The Mirage on March 14, LIQUID at ARIA on March 17, TAO Beach at the Venetian on April 2, Azure at the Palazzo (our pick for best pool scene) and Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan on April 9, Encore Beach Club on April 16, and Hard Rock's Rehab one day later (April 17).
