Reserving lounge chairs at the suites

We are heading to the Iberostar Suites next month and I was wondering if the early morning lounge chair holding is in play at this resort or is it not allowed?

You should have no problem in October. Occupancy should be low. We are headed to the Grand at the end of October and it usually isn't crowded at that time of year. When we went last April that was a different story, they were at 94% occupancy.

Even though the signs say it's not allowed, the practice was in full play when we visited in early August. After the first day, I would go down with my book around 9am and select our four spots. My wife and two boys would generally arrive an hour later. There were instances where seats were reserved when I arrived but I never saw anyone come us them all day. Incredibly rude, but......I only saw one disagreement about seating so it seems that most tolerate the practice.

I agree with the above. However we went in full occupancy high seaon and never had a problem finding seating in the shade by the pool or on the beach.

Honestly, I think anyone who says the towel game isn't played at any resort, is not being truthful. I have seen some resorts where it was not as bad as others, but there is always the "towel game". We always go in the peak season, so most resorts are full (or almost full).
