Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa Casino Las Vegas

Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa Casino Las Vegas - awesome pools, the Whiskey, great rooms. Green Valley is a posh and stately, Mediterranean-style AAA Four Diamond award-winning resort with trendy nightlife, surrounded by upscale shopping and dining, and four nearby championship golf courses. They once comped us rooms monthly so when we were Vanaboding through Vegas we would frequent the Green Valley Ranch. They have luxuriously comfortable beds with soft linens, plump down comforters and pillows, marble bathrooms, high-speed internet access, mini bars, twice-daily turndown service and robes. Rooms offer pool and Strip views or mountains views.

Green Valley Ranch has the hippest pools with a sand beach to occupy the kids and shallow places for reading and canoodling in 6 inches of water. You also have your choice of poolside lounging equipment, from teak lounge chairs to thick queen-size mattresses strewn with pillows, plus drinks and food served poolside.

Rande Gerber's The Whiskey is an ultra-trendy nightclub that includes the 8-acre Whiskey Beach, vineyards, and an amphitheater for outdoor concerts and events. Private "dens" offer beds for lounging, mister systems, TVs and phones. The Drop Bar is a modernistic, circular bar where you are served by the Drop Bar Girls wearing go-go attire. It is located at the center of the casino and managed by the owners of The Whiskey.

Jason's thoughts - One of the best top notch resort experiences I have ever had. Great room, ask for a pool view balcony room in the East tower if you want the best. Awesome huge number and variety of pools, nice casino, and movie theaters were clean. They don't advertise it but you get FULL FREE use of the spa, gym, private pool area, Jacuzzi, outdoor showers, mens and womens dressing rooms and lockers, and free food and water for hotel guests only (must show key).

Kelly's thoughts - The adult only pool, the pond, plays great music and the vibe is hot and fun. But for me, ultimately, the spa pool and facilities is unbeatable. My favorite part of the day included working out with good machines, treadmills, and bikes, grabbing some fruit and herbal tea from the spa, swimming in the lap pool, tanning on the queen-size cushions, and then going to the womens spa for a relaxing shower and pampering myself with all the perks that the Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa has to offer. Yes, you read me right, I chose the spa as my favorite over eating, although Hank's is absolutely delicious and beautiful.

Overview: one of my favorite places to stay in vegas, absolutely stunning
Location: in Henderson off 215 about 6 miles from the Las Vegas Strip
Restaurants: Hank's Fine Steaks & Martinis was super good but it was also one of the most expensive places I have ever eaten. The Original Pancake House is without a doubt the absolute best place in the world to eat breakfast, the buffet was not good at all especially for the price, The Grand Café is open 24 hours a day and always has "locals" specials that they don't tell the tourists about so ASK!
Nightclubs, Lounges: Casino bought all the nightclub space back from the outside vendors and tamed them down so as not to be too big a distraction from the core business of gaming. Not that much fun really.
Casino: 50,000+ square feet, including all table and slot games, Blackjack, Craps, Keno, Let It Ride, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Poker, Roulette, more than 2,100 slot machines, and a large quiet well run live poker room, race & sports book has seating for 160 people with a TV for each chair plus 10+ big screens for viewing major events.
Entertainment: Huge free concerts held almost nightly in a great showroom with seats for everyone, and large paid concerts are held in the 2,000 seat Grand Events Center.
Extras: The ambiance of this place is hard to deny. Absolutely gorgeous pool scene and the lobby is well appointed and worth seeing.
Pools: private pool and hottubs for guests using the spa or gym only, huge sandy beach pool for families with numerous pools and hot tubs surrounding it, plus a private pool hidden in an enclosed tropical area called the POND that was originally topless but now caters to the heavier drinkers and party animals (no kids allowed).
Health Club or Spa: One of the best of both I have ever been in, they don't advertise this but the gym is free to use for hotel guests which gives you private access to a special pool and quiet lounge area with huge padded day beds and cabanas free of charge.
Shopping: no shops inside the casino but just outside the door there is an entire complex of hundreds of shops and restaurants.
Wedding chapel: no
Childcare facilities: No
Pets allowed: Yes with restrictions
Parking garage: 2 large free indoor parking garages plus limited outdoor parking for oversized vehicles like rv's and buses, free valet is fast
Shuttle service to the airport: complimentary shuttle to and from the Strip
Shuttle service to Strip: complimentary shuttle to and from the Strip
Hotel amenities: Typical, plus valet parking, salon, currency exchange, laundry, luggage handling, electronic check-out
