On holiday, it is part of the fixed ritual for many to secure the best place by the pool with towels. This apparently annoys a hotel in Tenerife. A vacationer films a revealing scene.
Tenerife – Before breakfast, the loungers by the pool are already reserved – with a towel. It is considered a bad habit, but many holidaymakers stubbornly adhere to it. This annoys others and often causes heated discussions. Some hotels tolerate this practice and simply look the other way. A hotel in Tenerife (Spain), on the other hand, knows no mercy when reserving a lounger with a towel. Staff and staff rigorously clear towels from the loungers by the pool. A vacationer films this moment as dozens of towels are collected. She shares the video on TikTok.

"They took their bags, towels and everything with them and left a note where to pick up the things," Amanda Proctor writes about the clip. She thinks the action in the 5-star hotel on Tenerife is right. "It was totally funny!! Some didn't come back until the afternoon." Amanda Proctor would have liked to have filmed that too, she admits in a comment.
The video on TikTok has now been seen by more than 4.3 million people. The reactions to this are predominantly in a tenor. Most people find it simply impossible to reserve towels from loungers. The hotel and the staff receive a lot of praise for clearing the towel. "Herbert and Inge won't like that," jokes one user. Some are hoping for the necessary learning effect.
The phenomenon of early morning couch occupiers is already well known. Germans are considered unbeatable in this discipline, followed by the British. Researchers have even dealt with this topic. And indeed, the Germans have an advantage over the British population when it comes to getting hold of the pool position. It is probably due to certain sleeping habits, as the researchers claim to have found out.
