Not only does it house a 16-screen Regal Movie Theatre and a 72-lane bowling alley, but it also features a professionally supervised play area and floor-to-ceiling climbing maze for kids called Kids Quest. And though this hotel is located far from the noisy Strip, it still has a state-of-the-art casino on site … so while the kids are away, parents can play!

With one of the best pools in Vegas, how could not make the list of the top Las Vegas family hotels? The hotel’s Beach offers a wave pool, lazy river, three swimming pools and a shoreline made of real sand. When you’ve had your fill of fun in the sun, explore the on-site Shark Reef Aquarium, housing over 30 sharks and other creatures of the deep. Or ask the concierge to arrange for a babysitter so you can try your luck in the 135,000-square-foot casino.

Thanks to a large outdoor pool, no casinos, no smoking, and spacious suites complete with a kitchen or kitchenette, this Las Vegas hotel is definitely family-approved. And since the hotel is situated far back from the Strip, the chaos below won’t keep kids up at night. But for parents who want to sneak away to enjoy the less kid-friendly side of Vegas, Trump also offers a babysitting service.
