OK so here's the deal. At 6 am I put 2 towels on 2 chairs that I dragged under a palapa at a popular Maz resort. At 9:30 I come back to the palapa and there is a chaise pulled up next to mine and at\rticles of clothing sitting on one of my designated chairs. I removed the clothing and sat down. Where upon this younger woman with a small child proceeded to read me the riot act about removing her stuff. Apparently there is no reserving seats. I can read the sign on the post, but this is done all the time, fair or not! She spends the rest of the day bad mouthing my wife and I for leaving to "stuff our faces"
We are not newcomers to this resort and I know what the sign says but here it is first come, first served. Those that come late fend for themselves. I know, I have been in the same situation with 2 towels at 7am looking for a spot with no one in sight and no palapas without towels draped over the chairs. I would gladly share our space, given the need for shade but did not extend the favor due to an afternoon of verbal onslaught. So, is there a realistic protpcall here?
