Using the sun beds at beach clubs.

I'm assunpming that you aren't allowed to take your own food and drink in.

Right?

Think that's right, they will bring you food and drink to the beds :)

At Playa Miguel I would imagine they would want you to buy their drink/food but I have often hired beds and taken filled rolls/bottled water/fruit with no problem.... and seen Spanish families with picnics.

Perhaps if you hire the beds without wanting their food and drink you pay a bit more or if you buy it all from them the bed is included? Would be good to know a definitive answer.

I assume there is some confusion between a beach club and an area of beach with hamacas, sunbeds, and umbrellas. The former is going to want you to buy from them and usually is sectioned off with canvas walls. The latter is often, but not always, independent of the chiringuito behind it but it is a either a beach club or chiringuito plus beds and there you shouldn't have a problem bringing food and drink in.

What's the problem? That someone who has paid to stay at that hotel and to use its facilities finds the beds full of freeloaders - a modern version of Goldilocks.

No problem taking your own drinks and food I stayed at playa Miguel last year and hired sunbeds we went to the local shop and brought back crisps and water and even a bottle of chilled wine some of the beach beds you can hire include sangria and fresh fruit brought to you that is included in the price

I only use a hotel that has empty sun bed of which there is quite a few. Used a Hotel this afternoon didn’t deprive anyone of a bed. Later on in a bar got chatting to a couple who are staying in the hotel I used my hubby grassed me up, oh dont worry they said the Spanish use it in their droves and they are a nuisance. So I will carry on with my Goldilock ways, as long as there is plenty of empty sunbeds.
