We just put our stuff near the bar and went in the pool, no problem there. I just enjoy sitting in the sun a bit during the day and couldn't do that by the sexy pool. Most chairs are not actually occupied, just saved. So we sat on the beach a little bit to enjoy the sun and have a break from the party. We usually rolled out of our room about noon - hey, it's vacation! So did not want to bother to save a chair at 6am.
