Whether you're on a cruise, at the beach or staycationing at a Valley resort, there's one poolside ploy that really irks a lot of people.

You may think it's no big deal saving an empty poolside lounge chair by throwing a towel over it, but a TripAdvisor Pool Etiquette Survey found that 84 percent of people get agitated when others save chairs and more than a third of respondents said there should be a 30-minute limit.

Debbie Kellam, with the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa in Phoenix, said the seven-acre water park's staff is trained to watch for empty seats.

"Essentially, look for personally belongings -- shoes, sunglasses, beach bags or food and beverage items -- that are there and consider those as occupied seats," she said.

More cruise lines and resorts are introducing or considering introducing chair-etiquette rules.
