Family Checks Into a Tropical Paradise Resort, But What They Uncovered Turned Their Vacation Into a Dreadful Nightmare.

In a seemingly idyllic all-inclusive resort, the Original Poster (OP) uncovers a brewing conflict over lounge chair dominance, marked by the ubiquitous presence of unattended towels. When an unjust confrontation with an older couple turns OP into a vigilante for lounge chair fairness, the holiday paradise descends into chaos, paving the way for a tension-filled climax.

Upon arriving at an all-inclusive resort, OP and their companion found a peculiar situation. The beach and pool lounge chairs were claimed by towels, devoid of people. Despite the afternoon timing of their arrival, they found no spot to unwind.

The following day, OP decided to investigate the towel mystery. They found most loungers still ‘reserved’ by towels but never used, ruining their plans for a relaxing day. The beautiful seaside scenario had a shadow of unfairness looming over it.

On the third day, driven by frustration, OP made a bold move. They removed towels from two unoccupied loungers and claimed the spot for themselves. The day was perfect until it wasn’t.

Four hours into their bliss, an older couple showed up, claiming their ‘reserved’ chairs. They called for an attendant, who sided with the couple and kicked OP and their companion off the loungers. The paradise had shown its thorns.

A week into the holiday, the resort management came up with a decision. They put up signs stating that unattended towels would be removed. OP watched the development from their balcony, feeling a sense of victory.

An Unexpected Ally

Among the vacationers, one person stood out. Instead of being angry, they praised the new rule and congratulated OP for their courage. The lonely vigilante had gained an ally.

The resort management, realizing the truth, decided to side with OP. They officially introduced a ‘no reserving’ rule for the loungers, creating a fair system for all. The victory of fairness was celebrated with cheers from the holidaymakers.

One reader said, “

My husband was head of outside maintenance at a condo resort & a certified pool operator. There would be owners who would “ reserve” the tables with umbrellas as soon as they opened the pool. They were told not to.

He was instructed to remove those towels and turn them into the lost & found. He did the several times a day for 20 years.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote: “Nice. The entire concept of “reserving” a seat using a towel is ridiculous. If they want a seat so badly, they should turn up early. How dare they think someone should sit on the ground just because they hung a towel there? Talk about selfishness and entitlement.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person states, “I stay at resorts often for business, and most have signs at the pool that if your seat is unattended for 30 minutes, your stuff can be moved.

Good for you forcing the lazy management to finally make reasonable rules.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another viewpoint on the story: “We used to go to the beach for a week every summer… one day, the pool area was empty, but every chair had towels on them. My sibs and I collected them and put them all on one set of chairs. It was chaos.”
