When it opened in 1996, Monte Carlo's wave pool was a first in Vegas, its waves reaching three feet. It's the most popular spot at the pool - most bathers enjoy the refreshing splash as they soak up the rays. The relaxing lazy river is also a great way to cool off and the kiddie pool is just adorable with its child-sized beach chairs and ankle-deep wading pool. The foliage interspersed throughout offers visitors equal parts shade and sunshine. And the beach shop, drink cart and snack bar provide anything you could possibly need.
