What does everyone think of those who hog/reserve sun loungers at an ungodly hour? Is it a question of everyone for themselves or are they saddos as some describe them?
I've often wondered what prompts peeps to do this and in particular now, because we are off to stay at the Arona Gran this week. We booked after seeing very good reviews but...quite a few are tempered by the apparently awful situation around the pool areas with most sun loungers 'booked' by 8am. This is despite 'hotel policy' forbidding this tho no-one seems to be ensuring it doesn't happen.
So, a few questions for you all. We all pay the price we pay to stay at given accommodation. Why, therefore, do some guests think they have more rights than others to reserve sunbeds in prime spots,then go off or not appear until the afternoon? Allowing for the fact that some may have mobility issues, why do others stay in exp hotels to basically not move and prevent others from catching a few rays to chill for a welcome break from work?
We're not going to Tenerife to stay in one place, in fact we're very much looking forward to seeing some of the Spanishness of it, but would also like to sunbathe around a pool occasionally. Does that mean we too sneak down in hotel robes at the crack of dawn to get a bed in the sun? Watching this is quite entertaining at the Arona, apparently.
Nearly there! What do you do out there? Do you accept it and go out all day or play the game yourselves (but I get up early enough when working)? Or, whisper it quietly, has anyone dared to remove towels and acquire a sunbed (admittedly am thinking of this). What response have you had if you've drawn sunbeds to the management's attention?
Would just like to say have no intention of offending anyone with this post but would like to know what you all think.
