There are two pools at the Golden Nugget.

Heated / Unheated

The outdoor pools are heated.

Number of Jacuzzis

There is one hot tub on the pool deck.

Wheelchair Accessibility

All three levels of the pool deck are wheelchair accessible. An elevator can be found by the covered area of the pool on the other side of the shark tank. Mobility lifts are available at both pools.

Pool Vibe

Each of the two pools at this resort has it’s unique vibe.

Tank Pool

The Tank Pool is very much family friendly. There were, however, many guests like my wife and I there without children.

A nice feature of this pool is that at the backside of the shark tank there is a covered shaded area which is significantly cooler than being directly in the Las Vegas summer sun.

I was surprised at how cool the pool deck was able to remain even with temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. At many Las Vegas pools when it is this hot you can only walk a few steps before you need your footwear.

For those guests who are young or young at heart, access to the Tank Pool’s waterslide can be found on the right hand side of the shark tank.

Hideout Pool

A fair number of guests staying cool in the Adults Only Pool.  Red daybeds and loungers are along the sides of the pool.

The Adults Only Pool is referred to as the Hideout. Access is up the same set of stairs as the waterslide lineup. If there is a lineup for the slide just keep to the right hand side and make your way up. There is an elevator for those guests with mobility issues.

The Hideout Bar is just a few steps from the pool and it does serve up some delicious drinks. The energy level at this pool starts off rather tranquil but certainly does build as the day progresses. On weekends and holidays this can become a very high-energy Adult Pool experience.

Pool Towels

Complementary pool towels are available. When the pool first opens they limit you to 1 towel per person. I believe this is an attempt to stop people from saving multiple loungers at the beginning of the day, shortly after opening you can go back and ask for additional towels.


Complimentary loungers are available by the Tank Pool. They can however fill up quite quickly. It might take a day to figure out which part of the pool you want to sit at as the sun is hidden from some parts of the pool throughout the day. To ensure all members of your party are able to sit together you may want to consider one of the reserved seating options available to you.

Reserved Seating

There are a variety of reserved seating options available. Keep in mind that all members of your party must be 21 years of age or over to access reserved seating at the Hideout Pool. Reserved seating pricing in Las Vegas can be very dynamic, particularly on weekends and holidays. Be sure to check the Golden Nugget’s reserved seating reservations page for current pricing and availability.

For informational purposes only I have completed the table below showing the reserved seating options and pricing that were posted as of September 26, 2023 for the midweek date of Wednesday October 4 and the weekend date of Saturday October 7, 2023. I have also included the capacity for each type of reserved seating.

As with many resorts in Las Vegas, the Golden Nugget charges a rental fee as well as a Minimum Food and Beverage Spend for each reservation type. This means you and your party will be charged this minimum spend even if you do not meet this spending threshold.

Reserved Loungers

Paying for a reserved loungers is optional at the Tank Pool during the busier summer months. If, however, you would like the comfort of a lounger at the Hideout Pool, you will have no option but to pay a rental fee. There is no food and beverage minimum spend when reserving a lounger, they are however rented as a pair at a minimum. They will set up to five loungers in a group per reservation.

Sample Lounger Reservation Prices

Seating TypeCapacityMidweekWeekend
Hideout Lounger1 per lounger. Minimum 2 loungers$25X2=$50.00$45X2=$90.00

Reserved Daybeds

Daybeds are a great way to increase your comfort level while spending time by the pool. Although the regular loungers are reasonably comfortable, it’s nice to be able to roll over without having to adjust the chair. Daybeds are available on the second level overlooking the Tank Pool and by the 3rd floor adults only Hideout Pool. A rental fee as well as a “minimum spend” is required for daybed reservations.

Sample Daybed Pricing

Seating TypeCapacityMidweek Rental fee/Minimum SpendWeekend Rental fee/Minimum Spend
Tank Daybed4$45.00 – $35.00$75.00 – $75.00
Hideout Daybed4$75.00 – $45.00$115.00 – $65.00

Reserved Cabanas

Looking inside a Cabana you see two loungers outside and seating and storage inside. There is a mounted TV and a ceiling fan with its light on.

Having a cabana to “call home” while at the pool is a very comforting feeling. It’s nice to have a secure place to leave your belongings while you are exploring the pool deck. It is also a great way to keep your family members together, whether you are enjoying a meal together, enjoying the big game on the TV or just creating some great pooltime memories.

As with the daybeds rentals, cabana rentals have both a rental fee and a “minimum spend”.

Sample Cabana Pricing

Food and Drink Service.

Poolside food and drink service is available at both pools. My wife and I found that our food and drink orders were delivered quicker than at many other Las Vegas pools. This allowed for our hot meals to be delivered while they were still hot. The food selection is not large but it is tasty.
