    Do they provide towels at swimming pool or do I bring my own?

    They have towels there but you have to pay for them think it was €2. We just took the towels from our room.

    Thanks, good to know in advance. How many towels are there in the room? Can I ask for extra?

    I would need 3 for swimming pool. Not willing to pay extra for towels.

    I think there were 4 bath towels in our room, because it was a room for 4 people. We definitely had at least 3 because we went swimming and took the towels from our room and had one each.

    Sorry for hijacking your thread Isila :blush: but am I right in thinking that SL pool is 5 ft deep all round with no shallow end? I am the only non-swimmer on our trip and I don't want to miss out on all of the fun. Is there somewhere I can sit and watch the rest of the family or is there a separate jacuzzi that I will be able to sit in close by the main pool? Although we have stayed in SL twice before we have never used the pool and we want to try it out :goodvibes

    Yes, you are right in thinking that there is no shallow end to the pool. However there is a jacuzzi and there are sun lounger type things by the side of the pool that you can sit on :)

    Do you not have to get in the pool to get to the jacuzzi? All I can remember is access via the pool, could be mistaken though

    I'm not entirely sure, I know you have to get out of the pool to get in to the jacuzzi, but I don't know if you can just get in to the jacuzzi without going in to the pool...if that makes sense?

    Yes you need to get in the pool to get to the jacuzzie. They is plenty of those aeroboard float things if you could use one of them to paddle over to it , its only a a short bit . How tall are you? Im 5'4 and i could reach the floor of the pool. You could walk by the wall over maybe???

    Also slightly off topic (apologies) but was wondering if the SL pool tends to get very crowded - is there a particular time of day I should avoid?

    Isila, i can swim but i didnt do much swimming!! I use float around the pool with one of the aeroboard float things (i dont know the proper name for them lol!).

    As for the kids i brought arm bands from home with us and i brought a baloon pump that i got in euro world for ¬2 to inflate them. Dd2 can swim but she still worn them as i felt happier with the water been so deep.

    the baby pool is just a splash pool its not worth getting changed for tbh, i never seen anyone in it. Even familys with babies had them in the big pool with floate devices of some kind.

    My kids like that baby pool. They were very happy in it in HNY, I coudn't get them out! But DS1 liked jacuzzi a lot. DS2 doesn't like jacuzzi at all. Deep pools are scary for them, they won't put a toe in those. We'll make the best out of it and have our fun.
