Of course buying food/drink, does anyone have free chairs/unbrella?

Conversely, other than Club O, does anyone allow coolers if you buy there chairs for the day?

Technically NOT Club O, as not run by Cedric, but right next to it, another guy rents chairs on the nude section of the beach, on the end closest to where Pedro's used to be. They have nice comfy PADS, AND a table in between. They are $20 per day for two chairs and an umbrella, and you can take your own cooler.

Orange Fever has free chairs with pads if you buy drinks or lunch. They do allow coolers too. They serve very good food and not expensive.

My observation was that the beach front restaurants weren't offering this at this time. Yes, it use to be, that if you eat/drank they waved the fee for the set up. They all are trying to recoup there losses. We didn't mind paying at Kontiki. They reciprocated with a free shot for the both of us!

ALL of the resto's at the south end of the beach past the gate (except Club O) offer free chairs.

La String was offering ''complimentary'' chairs for restaurant patrons. Not sure if any will continue this practice once things get back to ''normal''.

Scubaman. They didn't in March/April. Friends went end of May, and they still were not charging, IF you ate/drank there! You mentioned a few months back, since they didn't have ''pads'' you weren't going to go there! So......

To me, I have ZERO desire to haul chairs and umbrella to the beach and there is no way the chairs are as comfortable and the umbrella as big as the ones set up on the beach . Everyone's needs and wants are different.
