Absolutley positively not - every resort has a towel area.

Some people bring bright colored towels for easy lounger identification. I usually have a bright beachbag that I place on top of one of the loungers while we swim. Easy enough and not an extra thing to pack as I use the beachbag as a carryon for the plane.

We ALWAYS do so we can identify our "spot" among all of the people. There have been times when resorts run out of towels and we ALWAYS have one. I use the towel to wrap up any delicate items that I might have purchased for the trip back home.

Happy traveling!!!!!!!!!!! (with or without your own towel!)

I always do but its a thin beach towel not a thick one... folds easily right on top of the clothes..its what I use to tuck everything in the suitcase and its bright green so I can always find my chair on the beach.

We didn't bother the first time, and it was fine so if you are stuck for weight don't bother. Since then, we have taken our own just to help identify our beds (we saw quite an argument by the pool when two lots of people claimed the same beds!).

Yup. I do. I like to have more than one towel, and the resorts limit you to just one of theirs (and, hold you financially responsible for it!!!).

Never brought towels on our previous trips - but I purchased really bright coloured patterned beach towels, almost flourescent-lol-for our next trip. Will make finding our chairs really easy and they are not thick at all-but large so won't take up much room once they are folded. Can't wait to use them, regards, Leigh

butterflies79, usually I do pack beach towels ..for the main reason everyone else says: easy identifier.. but this time I didnt (worried about the weight issue) and it worked out fine,,when finished for the day just went to the towel hut returned them and got new ones for next day.. but as poozieny said you are financially responsible for them ...if something should happen...so that is something to think about.. even though all worked out well,, I think for our future vacations we will pack our own towels..

Have a great time!
