It will take some time to see how successful the new Fontainebleau Oasis Pool Deck is at capturing the interests of the existing South-Strip pool enthusiasts. Much is still unknown about this new player in town but their PR team is doing their best to win over guests even before the pool deck is open.

This post will be updated as new details become available and after my first visit in the Spring.

Fontainebleau Pros

  • Brand New Venue
  • Day Passes available (A pro if you are a non-guest just wanting to check it out)
  • Evening poolside events planned (No specifics at this time)
  • This may not be the most family friendly pool (A pro for some)

Fontainebleau Cons

  • May not be the most tranquil of pool decks (a con for some)
  • Day Passes will make the pool deck busier
  • Still many unknown factors
  • The only adult pool is LIV Beach
