Is it acceptable to use a bubba

I was just curious what people thought a bought using a a bubba mug or such at a resort like La Blanc.I know pool service is very efficient.If lounging by the pool or on the beach,it's nice not to wait around for another cold beverage because they use those little plastic cups.Or is using these just not done at a 5 diamond resort.

They search every check in guest for bubba's and confiscate them. You will have it back at check out.

If it's all-inclusive, why do you need a bigger mug than the cup provided? You know they will quickly come back and give you a refill.

There have been many discussions on this subject, and I know that I am on the loosing side. Obesity in the developed countries prove that people want more and more and more. Can't you do with what is provided?

Le Blanc doesn't use little plastic cups, even with beach service. They're pretty decent size. I've never seen anyone use a bubba mug at a resort in Cancun. You can ask the server for two drinks and reorder when you get to your backup drink.

I'm not sure what obesity has to do with keeping your drink cold, galveston_gal.

Many people take and use a bubba keg. I have taken them with us several times but never used them. Personally, we just use whatever is offered at the resort.

drink it before it gets warm?

beer at le blanc is cold and you can have an ice bucket,.

you can do what you like here with your bubba or a thermos flask or anything else ..... didn't feel like a 5 star hotel to me whan i was there but you wont go thirsty, the service is good.

I've read they bring you ice buckets to keep your drinks cold.

Nothing screams I am an over indulging American more than a trash can sized mug with a handle. I have no problem making extra trip or two to the bar to get a fresh drink to avoid being that guy.

Wow, so glad I came across this topic. I actually just tossed a bubba into my suitcase for the very reason of keeping my beverage cold on the beach. I won't be staying at a resort where somebody is bringing me drinks. Do I get a pass for having a thermal drink container? I sure don't want to tick anyone off or look like a moron......

We've never taken one before, but this year I'd planned on doing that, because we will be walking along the beach and those little cups at the bar, won't take us very far. I had been reading that alot of people take them. There was just a post on this about a week ago.
