She did get up to stretch her legs and show off her tanned figure at one point however, looking far more relaxed in flip flops than she had done in heels over the weekend.
Joey looked a little restless on the sun lounger, shifting around from time to time, but ever attentive when Sam leaned over to share a quiet word.
Tender moment: Sam used her boyfriend's chest as a pillow as they drifted off together
A little help? Sam used an unconcerned Joey as a support to sit up
He was briefly distracted when a couple of young female fans came over to have a chat, but quickly resumed his prone position once they had left.
Sam was clearly quite happy to sit back and take a break from her usual role of Essex glamour queen.
Over the weekend the blonde boutique owner was spotted filming scenes for the Only Way Is Essex looking more her usual self, wearing a slashed to the navel black swimsuit.

She accessorised with a huge, gold neck piece, featuring a large circle in the middle which hung off the main plate and nestling between her breasts, drawing attention.
Sam wisely protected her face from the sun’s rays at Sisu Club and Hotel in Puerto Banus, pairing her skimpy outfit with a giant black and white striped hat and large sunglasses.
A crocheted waistcoat and sky high clogs which elongated her legs completed the look.

Blending in with the crowd: Sam was sporting none of her usual TOWIE bling, with unstyled hair and no jewelry
The overall look was significantly more high-maintenance than her low-key poolside look yesterday.
But Sam's more casual appearance clearly wasn't an issue for Joey, who was undeterred in his attentions.
The pair made a touching display of their affections during the final episode of season five last week when Joey penned a heartfelt love letter to Sam.
Time to head for the shade: Even the sun-loving pair needed a break at one point
Joey made Sam laugh as he reminded her of memories they share from when they initially got together, and displayed his childlike handwriting.
His closing words were: 'I love you and you're the love of my life.'
Joey's gesture appeared to make up for the distress he caused when he was photographed getting into a cab with another girl.
