24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport.  This hotel has many
recreational attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy
River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows, a number of
restaurants, etc.  The hotel is within walking distance from most other
attractions (recreational destinations, golf courses, ...).
You are to reserve your hotel room directly by calling Monte Carlo Resort at
1-702-730-7000 or 1-702-730-7777. Make sure that you mention the Group Code
