The dining area is at one end of the pool, and the bar (occasionally with music) is sort of towards the other. You can opt not to look at the pool at all and get an room closer to the casino, on the driveway that leads to the street. No view, but no pool noise. On the other hand, I had a second floor room overlooking the non-food end of the pool and wasn't bothered by music or pool crowd noise. However, I usually was out during happy hour, and returned about 7 pm.
