Sad to say we had clothing stolen at Sirenis La Salina : (

We returned from SLS on the 16th of June. We had really enjoyed our vacation, travelled with 3 children 7, 5 and 5 months.

At home doing our post trip laundry, I started noticing missing items. When we are away, once clothes are worn, they go back into a suitcase, ready for home. Never had a problem before. Most missing items were my 5 year old sons. Someone sorted through our dirty laundry, taking whatever they wanted. I feel disgusted that someone would steal from a child. I should mention that we locked our suitcases in our hotel room when we went home and none were broken when we got home.

I just feel it is important to be careful wherever you are, I hate to think I should lock a suitcase full of dirty laundry.

Wow Cubafun 123 - do you really think that way, or are you just trying to stir the pot?!

LaurieandTom: I have the same system: dirty clothes in the suitcase... and it would have never crossed my mind to lock the suitcase full of dirty clothes... Having clothing (or anything else) stolen is not a fun experience, it happened to me at a Sol Melia resort as well - a couple of my son's onesies and one of his hats were taken... And the worse part is if the person who stole them would have asked me for them, I would have gladly have given them!

Whether you agree or disagree with Cubafun 123's opinion it's ridiculous that the mods deleted his post. It broke no posting guidelines whatsoever.

I'm really tired of seeing posts deleted simply because it's a controversial opinion. Differing opinions keep a Discussion Forum alive and useful.

Sorry to hijack this thread as its sad and very disappointing that something like this could/would happen. Its just not Cuba, it happens everywhere. Terry I agree with your statements re TA moderators. In my opinion because of that many very knowledgeble people(Steve yyz, Mardi,GOM, and others whos names I forgot) have left or have been banished from this forum. Yes some could be brash in there comments but they had a wealth of information to give to people traveling to Cuba. JMHO

Yes, it is a disappointment to have things stolen anywhere, for sure.

I agree, Terry & Bergerman. It is frustrating to have posts deleted as it takes away the opportunity to see the real viewpoint of some posters, whether or not we agree with them. Just because we don't share the same opinion doesn't mean that a voice shouldn't be heard.

Maybe.. stir stir stir. Guess I will tone it down a bit.
