    I’ve gone up with bottles/pint glasses of beer before and they’ve only requested I pour it into a plastic cup. To be safe, though, should probably just put the juice standard in your bag when entering.

    Juice Standard has glass-glass as well so I’d also be prepared to transition it over to a plastic cup (there’s tons at the bar at the water station) around the corner from the pool. :sunglasses:

    This is a good point. The the "no glass" rule is something they're serious about, not just as a policy matter but because there are legitimate safety concerns with having glass around the pool area. If she can pour it into a plastic bottle or cup that'd probably go over much better.

    Pouring it in a plastic cup is a good idea, thanks!

    Haha yeah I was thinking about that the other day when texting Mrs PTD. Broken glass and bare feet is not a good combination.

    My friend Heather is reserving a cabana for our trip in 2 weeks. She’s getting one at Boulevard for $250 on a Tuesday (promo rate). Is there a food and beverage min on top of that? She said she doesn’t see it anywhere.

    Same cabana is going for $500 on Memorial Day!

    I'm not sure specifically about Cosmo, but usually if there's a flat fee then there's no food and beverage minimum. At MGM, for example, there's no fee but a minimum; at others, there's a fee but no minimum. That said, the best bet is just to call and ask.

    The $250 is the food and beverage minimum. If you don't want to, you don't need to spend any more than that. They do add 18% gratuity to the $250 though. Our daybed last week was $300 plus the 18% and any taxes. We spent just over $300 to meet the minimum and then with the 18%, rax, and additional tip I left we spent $400.

    We had a great day at the pool. We were there on a Wednesday, and while all the day beds seemed full it wasn't really that crazy there. Most people just out relaxing. No really swimming going on at Boulevard, mostly just sitting around as it's pretty shallow. We had the day bed nearest the cabanas on the strip side of the pool. With an umbrella we had shade most of the morning, but once it got around midday there was no escape from the sun even with the umbrella.

    Service was good, drinks tasty, and pool side breakfast/lunch was also good. Ours was $300, we got the minimum of $300 but I did have to order 2 cocktails and a big Fiji water bottle when it was time to close out. Figured I have to spend $300, might as well get my monies worth.

    We ate breakfast and had a light lunch there as well. Honestly I think my wife only had one cocktail and then a bucket of water so I ended up spending most of the money on drinks for myself lol

    The only pictures I took were of this girl, who I assume was some type of aspiring IG model. She was there before me at 9 am, and was still out there at 3:30 when we left for the day. I think we witnessed 7 outfit changes during the day. The photographers may have even been her parents :tearsofjoy: I documented her progress throughout the day because we thought it was hilarious.

    And you have to prepay the entire stay at the time of reservation.

    If you coordinate with the cabana sales people, you can choose where you want to sit (as long as it hasn't been reserved by someone else).

    That's a great deal for daybed at that pool. I spent a lot more for daybeds the Friday of Derby Weekend.

    They say it has to be paid in full beforehand on the website, but so far the 2 times I've reserved through the cabana sales people I've never had to do anything before getting to the pool. Once you get there though they want a CC or room charge information. Unless they just mean physically before you sit on it at the pool.

    I have a question, please. I've only ever booked reserved seating at Bellagio and Mirage and there wasn't any food and beverage minimums required for those. If I wanted to book a daybed at Cosmo using the special on their website for $100/day, does that mean I only need to spend $100 in food and beverage, plus the 18% gratuity and then I'm good?? I would need to spend no more? Or do I just pay $100 for the daybed and there is no food and beverage requirement?

    As far as I know... there's only a F&B minimum for reservations at the Cosmo pools.

    You can see what the final total will be with taxes and the 18% gratuity when you book online before finalizing it give you the grand total. You will get to eat/drink $100 of stuff.

    I have a question since they are including the 18% gratuity do you still tip your cabana server on top of this?

    I did as well. She was coming around frequently and offering stuff constantly.

    Thanks for the info. Haven't 100% decided on Cosmo for our next trip, but if we do stay there, I'd like to take advantage of the online promo. The price is definitely right.

    I'm not familiar with the deal you speak of, but you don't have to be a guest to rent a daybed or cabana at Cosmo, unless that's a caveat of the pricing.

    When you click on the "reserve a cabana or daybed" tab and put in your date, a "promotional price" is listed. For the date I was looking at it's $100 for a lower deck daybed.

    Then I'd assume you could get that price whether you stay there or not. Might be worth it to just book it now. I think you can cancel anytime if it's outside 72 hours from the reservation time.

    If you decide to stay elsewhere and you don't want to go there for the day you can just cancel the reservation.

    Thanks for the info. Typically, I'm not one to frequent pools at places I don't stay, as I just like to get off the elevator and head to the pool vs. walking down LVB in my swimsuit. :rolleyes: Also, I think it's sorta unfair to the paying hotel guests to have non-guests at their pool. I'm old-fashioned, I guess, or just old. LOL!
