    Now that the resort is more full than it was when it first reopened, the "reserve a chair at the pool" issue seems to be coming up again. I am curious to know why people reserve (or do not reserve) a chair - perhaps with a lot of responses there might be a suggestion that could be made.

    In particular, I wonder if adding small lockers somewhere in the pool area would be helpful. Let's see how many people pick option #3.

    If I missed a reason, please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments.

    This thread is NOT meant to re-ignite the conversation on this topic - there are already plenty of threads or parts of threads for that. I am simply trying to gather information that might be helpful to present to the hotel with a reasonable solution that might solve the problem.

    Small lockers would be great! If you're just planning on being in the pool it would make more room for people who want to lay out.

    I don't know if I would necessarily say "lockers" and give it that public pool feel. But maybe just some shelving or a cubby type area where you can throw some stuff. I normally just toss flip flops and a tank top somewhere, and Elyse does the same. Don't really need chairs, cause we never sit, but can't just leave our stuff lying on the ground somewhere either.

    I truly do not understand "why" people think they are entitled to reserve a chair in the first place.

    We see someone we might want to meet and walk up, introduce ourselves and ask if we can put our stuff under their chair. We have never been turned down and usually we have a new friend to sit with.;)

    Re storage. Something like this which they have at Desire Pearl would be perfect. Could be next to the staff storage area down below the ramp...

    No need for a chair near the sext pool. If you need a chair go to the ouiet pool.

    The wife burns easy so shade is important to her survival for the time there. Getting burnt is no fun when outside all those days. So we look for umbrella or some other shade and seats there.

    You have to sit at some point right? Usually by the end of a trip to TTR what hurts most are my legs due to standing in the pool for hours, dancing at patty o’s / Bash for hours, doing my husbandly duty for hours ... I need some chill time in the chair simply enjoying the sites and watching the entertainment

    If I'm going to sit, you better believe it's on a bar stool.

    I noticed that nobody's really posted a good reason why they feel like they need to reserve a seat.

    Here's the type that REALLY gets me.

    Cool, fun people show up at TTR, Boobs Cruised booked. The day of the Boobs Cruise, they get up, get breakfast (very smart) head down to the pool, drop a towl on a chair so they'll have a spot when they get back from the Boobs Cruise, and they head off to meet Steve. They pays their money, go down the dock, and enjoy having Chinos make fun of everyone for six hours or so while getting drunken and drunkenly kissed on, joked with, perhaps groped and other things, all while drinking more than they thought they could actually swallow.

    Then they stumble back onto the dock, walk up the pier, back up the beach and crash into the Sexy Pool and re-energize the party!

    All of that is awesome.

    But, why'd they need to drop a towel on a set when they were going to be gone 6 hours or so? Beats me. They generally forget they even did it, so a seat can go wasted all day if nobody caught on when they went off to the BC.

    Well, we have never really had an issue with chairs or what not since we usually put our stuff in the Premier Member area. It doesn't seem to be that far from the Sexy Pool anyways. I have heard people comment and actually get pissed that all the chairs around the Sexy Pool are taken before 8am sometimes.

    I don't have a problem with 'borrowing' seats if it just has a neatly folded towel on it, particularly if it's got to afternoon time. If people's stuff is spread around, then of course I'll leave it be. In 8 trips I've only twice found people who had a problem with this when they returned from wherever they've been all day and found me sitting on their reserved chair.

    I think we need to do this more! Lol... Have never liked to before... However, seeing many, many chairs reserved from early on and not, or barely used.... !!!!

    Being from a cool/cold country, I need my bit of sun in the morning before joining the sexy pool later on for the activities! If for not for anything else.... people here would ask - so you've just been to cancun, and are whiter than before you left???!!!! Lol....

    The only time I did get pi**ed off was on our last day... finally found two sun beds together!!! Sun umbrellas up all around and wanted some sun... Being polite and British, I asked the person next to us, do you mind if I put this down... she said, actually yes, because of the sun. Despite the fact that putting it down would have absolutely no affect on her, only on us, due to the angle of the sun!

    Seriously! Who comes to Temptation, to sit in the shade, reading a book at the sexy pool????????

    I think this is the funniest topic. My wife will tell me she is going down to get a chair. I tell her to only get one beceause I will not be needing one my ass is in the pool.
