Nice and absorbent
I got these towels for my high school student to use for swim team practice and they are perfect! They are large enough for him to get himself dry, but not so big that they are cumbersome for him to carry around in his bag all day until practice. The weave of the towel is nice and loose so that the towel is absorbent and cozy. I have found that sometimes with "luxury" towels, the weave can be very tight and almost repels the water rather than absorbing the water and drying you off; you end up just sort of rubbing the water around and not actually getting any drier. This is NOT the case with these towels. They work wonderful and launder well. I would certainly purchase these again (and I just might). :)

They are very classy looking. The only problem is the washing, which previous reviews has stated. The threads came out in several. We are just using them around the pool, and they look great, when the kids aren't messing them up by building tents haha

Less than $10.00 each for 2 towels is a price I'm really happy with. They were packaged really nice with a little "fan-key Home" on them, which could actually make a nice gift. We are using them for our daughter for swimming but they are nice and plush. Haven't washed them yet but for now very happy with the purchase! And VERY happy with the price! : )

Buy towels sight unseen, your wallet will thank you
Crazy how expensive towels can be in light of how these fan-keyBasics are priced. Kind of upsetting to me that I waited this long to get some "house brand" towels, but I bought these after being quite pleased with the white 4 piece sets for my guest bathroom. I find these pleasantly styled beach towels to be very absorbent and soft, and they've held up to several washings. I wish I could say the same of other large towels bought at retail for MUCH higher prices! I will shop fan-key FIRST for towels from now on.

Is falling apart after 2 uses
I bought these for swimming lessons for my kid. We have used them twice and have not yet washed them and they are already starting to unravel. I’m very disappointed.

I read some reviews about the towels shedding fuzz everywhere, and they do for a couple of washes in the lint trap. I also noticed it in my bathroom, but it was so fine I could only see it when I dusted and it accumulated on the rag after I cleaned. It's really not a big deal and dissipates after a few washes.
For the price, they are excellent, soft, well made towels. I now have 8. I use them in my bathroom, and liked them so much I bought some for my camper van too.

Nice for the price
I like these towels because they are bright colored, very large and extremely soft but for the right price. Wash them a few times and they become more absorbent. We have 6 yellow and 6 green. We use them inside for the bathroom and outside at the pool.

They truly are basic beach towels. For the basic beach.
I'm not a beach-and-pool guy, so take this with a grain of salt -- i needed beach towels for one week this year. I got these. They worked as beach towels for that week. I have no idea if they'll hold up beyond that, but they worked for as long as I needed them.

This is the first fan-key Basic item that I have not liked. I wasn't expecting plush 5 star quality by any means but these were bad. I bought them for a beach weekend and after the 2nd day they started to come apart. I wasted them once and they got worse. I'm not sure they would survive a 2nd wash without ending up as torn rags.
