Families won’t be too concerned that this impressive casino resort in Summerlin is 10mi (16km) from the Strip. Though there is a shuttle service to the sights, kids will be too busy seeking out the delights of the hotel itself to worry about leaving. Highlights include a cinema, kids’ club, 72-lane bowling alley with its own deli, cyberquest arcade, and incredible 3 acre (1.2ha) pool area with cafe, poolside entertainment, and lounger service.

There’s nothing understated about the Luxor’s towering black pyramid soaring above the south end of the Strip. Inside, the hotel’s wealth of entertainment and dining options are just as extravagant. Guests can hit the casino, choose from several restaurants – serving everything from Mexican dishes to frozen yogurt – or book one of Luxor’s long-running shows including the extraordinary Blue Man Group. Spend days recovering at the mammoth 19,000sqft (1,765sqm) pool complex or indulging in spa treatments at the Nurture Spa.

Don’t expect quiet days and early nights at Mandalay Bay. This is a Vegas hotel that can outdo even the most ostentatious hotel on the Strip with its headache-inducing choice of activities and amenities. The focus is firmly on fun here, with its own 11 acre (4.5ha) sandy beach, wave pool, lazy river, and lagoon. There’s also a range of big-name theater shows, along with a shark aquarium that’s home to over 2,000 animals – including piranha and giant rays.

If lazing by the pool appeals more than neon-drenched nights in a casino, Cancun Resort offers a compromise between the thrill of the city and a well-earned break in the sun. Ten minutes’ drive from the bustling Strip, the resort itself is a laid-back mix of penthouse suites, villas, and apartment-style rooms with full kitchens – so traveling groups and families can spread out. Meet each morning by the huge pool complex, complete with Mayan pyramid, waterfall, four mammoth water slides, hot tubs, and cafe.

Club de Soleil offers a luxe Mediterranean-style sanctuary minutes from the Strip, but with added home comforts when you crave a little more than a hotel. There are laundry facilities, a clubhouse, and barbeque grills available, while every suite has its own full-sized kitchen or kitchenette – with an in-room grocery delivery service to make self-catering hassle-free. Luckily, the two 24-hour heated pools, hot tubs, and tennis court ensure it will still feel like a holiday.

A gleaming high-rise a short walk from the Strip, the ARIA Resort is a grown-up playground that truly comes alive after dark. If the casino doesn’t appeal, try the enormous JEWEL Nightclub with its roster of world-famous DJs, several secluded cocktail lounges, or the glittering poker room with nightly tournaments. Foodies will love the choice of restaurants, including a tapas bar, traditional pub, authentic French brasserie, and spendy steakhouse from renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
