These are very nice-looking towels; however, they are way too thin. They don't absorb much. They are supposed to be beach towels. I think they should be thicker for the price. I'm not sure I would recommend them, mostly due to the price when they are a tad flimsy. Not that the price was outrageous, but you do want value for your money. They certainly aren't terrible towels, and they are really cute.
