Do all rooms have balconies?
No - the rooms with balconies are in the Ferenghi Towers and only from certain floors upwards. We paid extra to have sea view with balcony on a high floor (21st). Our balcony also had a little contraption where you could dry suimsuits etc.

We stayed in a partial sea view in the Tower Wing which is across the road from the main hotel and has a walkway over the road for easy access. Rooms were really quiet and comfortable.
