    We haven’t been back to TTR since the renovation but we’re finally making the return pilgrimage in December. Is it still standard practice to reserve the seating around the sexy pool early morning with towels and t-shirts? Thanks!

    Hmmm, ok. We’ve been twice before, 2013 and 2015. Both of those trips if you didn’t get up at about 6 a.m. to “reserve” pool chairs there was no chance of getting one all day.

    Wasn't that bad last year...………. best thing is to party all night and then go and sleep on a sun bed.. sorted. We arrange things between us, one day I get the beds, next day, oh yeah I find them again.. that goes on for 10 or fourteen days.. I know my job !!......Viv just sleeps till the coffee turns up (nice life if you can get it LOL)

    Yes it still happens.

    If staying in the tower you get a butler and he will work with Kiki at the pool to reserve you desired loungers. Kiki puts out your shirt or personal item on each chair and then recommends by 9 or 10 (at the latest) to go get towels etc onto the chair or someone might scoop it.

    We did use our chairs a lot during the day so we wanted 2 together didn’t want to roll the dice during sell out days.

    Pool is too deep for Kath and not as warm in April as hoped for so we were back and forth between the chairs and the pool shallow spots.

    Was there Apr 27 - May 1st; most (~80%) chairs around the sexy pool were claimed by 8 am.

    Pro tip: If prime seating is important to you, pay a staff member to reserve your seats.

    We were there mid April and Yes, staff had all the prime seating reserved every day we were there! Roughly 70% of all. Got frustrating! I would go down around 7. Only thing available was on either side of playmakers games area.

    We got tired of the game this trip. Even were in a lush suite and were told we had a butler and then told we did not and could never find one to help us anyway. So instead of getting up early we got up when we wanted at 10ish and could always find seats in the last row or on the deck reserved for tower guests (note that deck also has the chairs where you can adjust and lie on your stomach). Neither of these locations are prime viewing locations but were fine for a home base for us. We would just go in the pool if there was something we wanted to watch or if we wanted to socialize more.

    I thought that was just a member deck? I wasn't aware that Tower guest could go up on the deck and use chairs. Is that both decks, or is it the one to the left if you have your back to the hotel?
