Hi there, I thought I would post this question to raise discussion around the Etiquette on Sunbed reservation.
I have recently returned from A 14 night stay in Icmeler which was again wonderful. We decided that after a tough year we were going to stay around the pool during the day therefore I entered into the 'sunbed reservation race,'
One particular morning I reserved my beds at 7am and returned to my room, I returned just after 9am to find my towel thrown onto the adjacent bed I had reserved for my daughter, the person who had taken up residence on the bed was approaching therefore I asked them 'did you take the bed?' their response being 'I promise you I didn't'.
I did not respond as on holiday and did not want a scene however went away to find a chair annoyed (no sunbeds left).
As human nature always prevails, the accused person was then given up by various parties of the apartments.
This then brings me to discussion topic, as the person had been voluntarily 'dobbed in', which made me chuckle, I thought had they actually done anything wrong, there is no law or policy on sunbed reservation just an ethical reasoning that a towel means reserved.
My own opinion is that if I was as confident (nicest term I could think of) as the person in question, would I have done the same, possibly not but that's on me and not their fault.
So I guess the debate is:-
1. When is a sunbed reserved?
2. Is it acceptable for towels to be removed if sunbed not being utilised?
I'm kind of swaying to the second but would not have the Confidence to do so.
