I am just back from the H10 Timanfaya Palace in sunny Lanzarote and had a nice time but there was something that seriously bugged me and I was interested in what you guys thought and it is as follows;
The reservation of sun loungers and parasols by holidaymakers early in the morning (and I mean early!) My wife and I were infuriated by people putting towels down on sunloungers and for the whole week of our holiday we were forced to go to reception after breakfast and ask for sun loungers to be brought down. This was only after 9am for god sake! We had no access to a parasol for the whole week of our holiday. I complained to the hotel and to the rep to be told this was highly unusual and only happened in the past couple of weeks! People were asked at our Thomson welcome meeting to refrain from doing this but alot of people did it anyway! The sun loungers were obviously plentiful in supply as 1 of the staff kept bringing them out but the real issue was with the parasols. I have complained directly to the hotel and Thomson too. Some of the things people were doing took my breath away, from;
1) Putting towels down and not turning up until much later! The usual trick!
2) Coming down after their brekkie and moving the sun loungers away from the parasol completely! Unbelievable! I saw 1 example of this and the vacant parasol was snaffled within seconds!!!
3) Removing the parasol completely and sunbathing all day without it! Jesus!!!
It is utterly selfish of people doing this and it just shouldnt be going on! What is your view on this or were you 1 of the culprits!!!
