while staying in town at a nonAI - when you "park" yourselves at a restaurant or beach club, do they rent the chairs, pads and towels? or would we need our own towels? thanks in advance.

As long as you purchase food & drink there normally is no charge for lounge chairs or pads. Buy yourself a nice PV beach towel to take home with you. All the shops sell them.

Typically you can have fresh beach and pool towels daily. You sign out the quantity and you sign again when you return them. The hotels do this so people won't use the hotel towels at the pools and beaches. Just because you did not go the all-inclusive route does not exclude you! We have never had any issues with towels, beach chairs, or signing for our drinks and snacks.

towels for the beach

Post by susana » Sat Nov 12, 2005 8:09 pm

It depends on your type of hotel. The budget ones do not have beach towels for you to use. I do as Stew does, buy a PV beach towel upon arrival and take it home as a souvenier.

for the restaurants/bars along Playa Los Muertos, most let you use a chair or lounge and palapa/umbrella, small tables, as long as you purchase food &/or drinks. The waiter will come out to you when you sit down.

p.s. There is one place that charges you for a chair then give you the 1st (lame) drink "free"... don't sit there because all the other places are better IMO.

Chico , every hotel I have stayed at has issued a towel card which you have to exchange for towels. This vacation at Fiesta Americana they even recorded a code off the towels . So I left my towel card and also a record of the towels I received. I talked with the waitstaff and they had no problem with guests using the loungers and pool as long as you bought food/drinks.

hey all, as i understand this questions is specific about downtown and non-all-inclusive hotels,not resorts. how things work on the public beach in the palapa bars is different than a fancy resort managed beach area. believe me in budget hotels there are no towel cards, etc.
