Room

The check-in lines are insane on the weekends, so be prepared to be patient while you wait to get your room key. It’s not uncommon for guests to wait in line for over an hour during peak times. Valet and self-parking is free, which is always a bonus in Las Vegas where parking fees can add up quickly.

Pool

The pool at Rio Hotel & Casino is a great spot to cool off and have some fun in the sun. With four swimming pools, two whirlpool spas, and plenty of activities for kids and adults, there’s something for everyone at Voodoo Beach.
