My wife and I booked a room at a hotel in Israel. My daughter and her three daughters all under age six came to visit us at the hotel at our request. We all sat around the pool and two of my granddaughters went into the pool. The hotel did not ask my daughter who she was when she came with her children into the swimming pool area, and so I was not charged any money. Am I obligated to write to the hotel and to offer to pay them for the visit of my daughter and I?

This also happened on a previous occasion during the last year. On that occasion I did however buy some meals by the pool for my granddaughters and some ice lollies. I don’t know if that is relevant.

Please advise as to whether I am obligated to write to the two hotels to offer to pay.


Generally. hotels allow guests to have a few family or friends visit on hotel grounds and use facilities such as the pool along with the guests. When it is busy season or for whatever reason they wish to deny access to outsiders they will make it clear with a notice in the hotel or in the rooms. Presumably this was not the case and you can rely on the common custom of hotels to allow such visitation.
