How does your resort handle the lounges/palapas/guests?
How do you go about getting your lounge and shade there?
We own at LaCabana and get out on the beach early to snag a 1st or 2nd row spot.
(Often what we do, is we make camp at the pool. We head over to the beach to jump in the ocean a couple of times a day. Not leaving our spot at the pool for more than an hour at a time)
There is no line up or reservation on the afternoon before....It is first come first served on the morning that you want to be on the beach.
Some people go out there as early as 5 am, others at 10 am.
Some resorts offer the opportunity to reserve the day before.
Some resorts charge $ for prime shade/lounge (Marriott is one of them)
