Hello Tuggers!

My family has voted, and we will be having our annual reunion vacation in Las Vegas in mid-June. I know, it's not the ideal time but between school and work schedules over 5 different States to coordinate 30+ people, this timeframe will have to do. We have stayed at the Elara before for long weekend get togethers and wondering if there are other timeshares we should consider. The units are awesome, we have stayed in the red room unit with a gorgeous view of the strip, location is fantastic but the pool area is ok. We like to have a BBQ day by the pool as one of the items on our itinerary. So are there any other timeshares that has a great pool, BBQ onsite and still close/convenient to the strip?

I have HGVC, Marriott, RCI points and access to Interval so if it's a timeshare and there's availability, I can most likely get it. Open to suggestions and opinions solicited :)

Thanks in advance.

Can't help you with the timeshares, but be aware that mid-June in Las Vegas will see daytime temperatures well over 100 degrees, perhaps as high as 110 or more. You can roast to a crisp in a very short time. Be very cautious.

For the HGVC options, the Boulevard location has a fantastic, spread out pool area that would work well. However, I don't know if they have BBQs onsite -- you might give them a call.

Thanks, hopefully it won't be terrible. 2 of the families live in Vegas so it's a staycation for them LOL. They assured us that it's bearable. I'm sure it will be an experience those of us coming from out of State.

Ok, then they've warned you what to expect. Bearable for them may not be bearable for you. We flew in from Seattle for a mid-June wedding about fifteen years ago, and it was awful. I now live 80 miles outside of Las Vegas, so am more acclimated to the heat. Those of you not from LV will be roasting. Just be ready. Sunscreen and shade are your friends. :D

We just spent this past mid June in Las Vegas at Polo Towers (16-23), and the weather was perfect, it didn't break 100 the entire week. I would not recommend this property at this time as it is surrounded by construction, but hopefully the road work will be done by next year so you won't have to deal with that. If I could choose anyplace, I would go with the HGVC Flamingo because it has its own pool that should meet your requirements, plus access to the Flamingo pool.

I keep coming back to HGVC Boulevard because of the pool area. Although it is not huge, it is nicely spread out and the space is well-utilized. There is shade if you want it, grassy area, games area and tennis, pool lounge service when it's busy and a pretty decent poolside grill that has daily happy hours. At the edge of the grassy area are BBQs to use.

I especially like that the pool area is open late, because many Vegas pool areas close ridiculously early. Between the two pools is a nice outdoor firepit and seating area with lots of tables spread around, and an outdoor big screen TV. It's a great space for groups to gather.

It's not my favourite location on the Strip, but the Deuce stops right outside.

Thanks, I'll take a look at Flamingo and Boulevard. The Flamingo pool access looks like a nice perk but are kids allowed?

You would have access to three different pools at the Flamingo.

1. The Flamingo timeshare itself has a smaller, less busy (and shaded) pool. There are BBQ available here. Because of the proximity to the Flamingo GO pool it will be loud during the day with DJ music.

The Flamingo Casino/Hotel has two additional pool options. Both of which can be accessed for free as a guest of the Flamingo.

2. A family pool which allows access for all ages. It is right beside the GO pool.

3. The GO pool which is usually what people are referring to. It is 21+ only. I was there last summer and had a great time. It is essentially one big party. Note that unless you are willing to pay for a lounger or cabana, most of the free loungers are not really too close to the pool.

If you are wanting a more relaxed and quiet poolside day then the Flamingo may not be the best choice. For me, I love it and am heading back for a quick trip this Saturday.

We stayed at Club de Soleil and loved it! Nice rooms (we stayed in a one bedroom with full kitchen). They have pools, grills, and a shuttle that goes to the strip every hour. We were there in December so it was chilly at night. We like it being a few miles off the strip.
