Hotel staff scolded removing towels from deckchairs as Brits tried to reserve them
A controversial moment when hotel staff were caught removing towels from sunbeds after tourists tried to reserve them has gone viral. British tourist Amanda Proctor captured the video in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands.
She captioned the footage: “Hotel staff and security take towels kept on beds.” The clip shows hotel staff removing yellow towels from poolside beds.
Veds aren’t allowed to be saved until 10 a.m., Amanda added as people flocked to have their say and respond in the comments. As the video spread like wildfire on TikTok, one person wrote, “Good. Totally agree with that.”

“They remove towels that have been there for over an hour with no one lying there. I loved it,” agreed a second. But not everyone was on the side of the hotel.
Despite some criticism, others have flocked to support the movement. One TikTok user wrote, “I go to a hotel that reserves your beds for your entire stay for your room.
“Don’t rush downstairs, they’re yours the whole time you’re there. Best idea EVER.” Etiquette expert William Hanson previously explained: “Reserving sunbeds with a towel for more than 30 minutes is a big no-no, beyond that grace period it’s first come, first served. “
