RIU Hotel "Caution!!! Thieves "

Date: August 24, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, NY
On August 22nd at 7:30pm I noticed that my wallet was missing from my bag in my hotel room. After searching the entire room to see if maybe it was misplaced I realized that indeed the wallet was stolen from the room. I reported this immediately to the hotel manager. She informed me that she could not do anything about this matter until the morning crew arrived the following day. She also said that she would call the police and report the incident. The following morning I was called to the general manager's office to discuss what steps would be taken to investigate my stolen purse. She proceeded to run the key pad to my room door through their computer system. This would show all entrances that were made to the room at a specific time. The computer system showed that a service employee entered the room at 4:50 pm earlier that that day. She also noted that this was not a schedule cleaning visit. This was also 10 minutes before my mom came back to our roo!
m. I then asked the manager to call the police so that I can report this matter. This was only at my request. The police came and took my report of what happened. Ten minutes after the police left which was 20 minutes before we were leaving to come back to New York, the manager and 2 employees showed up in the lobby where my family and I were seated. The manager had my wallet in her hand, saying that they found the wallet behind a magazine rack in the room. What a coincidence!!! I think not!!!. How is it possible that my wallet mysteriously showed up right before I was leaving? I checked my wallet and all my credit cards and my daughter's diamond earrings were present, however my $200 US dollars was gone. I was so disgusted by this whole incident. I never thought that something like this would happen to me. I know you should be aware of your surroundings and belongings when staying at a hotel, but you also stay at these hotels with the expectation of being safe and secure. It just goes to show that you cannot trust anyone! Protect yourself at all times. Do not leave your money, jewelery, personal documents out in the open when staying at hotels.
