CHAIRS AT GCP OR LACK THEREOF

I agree

So if I come back to the Crown I should pay all my money up front and then go to Wal Mart and buy a chair? Or I should be left to negotiate with the staff about where I can sit and hope when I run to the bathroom they don't take my stuff. Sounds like things there ere getting even worse than the last...

Just one Mexican Minute

It is a very well known fact , when you are told by someone in Mexico it will be a minute always ask " is that one Mexican minute" Truth be told the people there do not sweat the small stuff( or the big stuff for that matter ) they must think that tourists are crazy the way we worry and are always i...

Obvious

It is obvious you know so much about the resort, the owners, the mangement, the staff, that this kind of business and promotional sales ideas offend you and upset you... but this is just MY opinion... As I have said before I am entitled to my opinion its your right to disagree or agree as you see fi...

Saving chairs

Warm in Winter As I said if you feel the need to sit together better get down early and reserve some chairs , despite what the "regulars" wish the fact is that the resort can't or will not police this and while in a perfect world we would all come down to a nice lounge and palapa people will get up ...
