As you drive south down Las Vegas Blvd and out of town, the scenery turns from tall buildings with beautiful landscapes into empty plots with dry and cracked soil. Just when you think you’ve driven far enough away from the main strip and there is nothing to see until you get to the mountains, a giant, glass structure pops into view on the left. You’ll be wrong if you write this oasis off as a mirage, because it’s actually the M Resort & Casino. The M has an enormous Pool and Entertainment Plazza complete with a stage at the far end where they host outdoor concerts and events. Even though the main pool area is impressive, the intimate Daydream pool is where you will want to go for the adults-only party.
If you arrive early (before noon), the cover charge is minimal for men and free for women. You will also save a bundle on rentals here as they offer cabanas starting at $175. The pool is a long, rectangular infinity-edge pool with lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas lining either side. Palm trees surround the whole club area making it feel quite secluded even though its just right off of the main guest pool.
With all the cash you save on seating, you’ll have plenty to spend on drinks, and the bartenders here serve up some delectable drinks. Try out the Watermelon Mojito and the Acai You Later; both of those are refreshingly delicious on a hot summer day. Daydream has incorporated cutting-edge technology into a drink rail that encompasses the bar. The rail is frozen and keeps your drink cold if you set it on the rail.
Given its remote location, low prices and cozy atmosphere, there is no wonder why this haven is a popular spot for locals. Take a trip down south past of all the packed pools on the strip and discover Daydream. There’s no need to pinch yourself; this reverie is the real deal.
