Okay, so I know some of you will think this is really dumb, but I've only been to MB once and I am considering returning, but something really turned me off when I was there and I'd love some feedback.
We stayed at the Breakers a few years ago. It was a great hotel, just beautiful, in spite of being blocked at check in by the time share pushing devils.
Every day we tried to go down to the pool/beach and have some fun. And every day you could NEVER get a chair, because it was like everyone staying there went down at breakfast and "reserved" their chairs by putting towels, whatever, on them. I don't have a problem with that...and I'd do it to, but when hours, and I mean HOURS went by and the chair had clearly never been used...well, that's downright rude. The Breakers at that time had a "no chair reserving" sign up but no one paid any attention to it and no one seemed to patrol this. On one day in particular, I did get a chair and there were several nearby that had been "reserved" so my son could not get one near me. I was at my chair for 4 hours and no one ever came to those chairs, and based on what I saw no one had been there prior to my arrival, either.
Are there any "beach etiquette" rules when it's okay to just dump the stuff and take the chairs from these rude folks???
