I have been twice to an all inclusive in Puerto Vallarta and yes, the "reserving" of deck chairs and Palapas started very early in the day. My DH and I were usually able to get a couple even after breakfast and often didn't see anyone come back for the ones they "reserved" for many hours and for some, just to pick up their stuff at the end of the day. The resort also posted signs but were never enforced. I am dissappointed to hear we are likely to have this same problem on our upcoming Diamond Princess cruise.
