2. Re: mugging in rooms in ocho rios rui hotel

I stayed at the Riu in May.

my camera was stolen from the lobby (I forgot it on a chair). I alerted the staff and they were more then concerned and did everything in their power to try to help me find it.

They even set up a search that night and let me be there at the exit of the resort while they searched the staff members. I felt like the staff at the Riu went well above their duties to try to help me find it.

I also never once felt unsafe at the Riu

(I am a 24 year old female who travelled with two 19 year old females)

I did read that trip report.. and I also noticed that that is the 1st review that person has posted... I am not saying it didn't happen, but honeslty, After staying at the Riu, I can say that I felt way safer and felt the staff was way better there and more caring then any resort I have stayed at in the Dominican.

Muggings, room & safe burglaries, even shootings...Maybe one day management will care enough to actually try to make the place more secure...

I am friends with one of the couples who posted about the break in and robbery. This story is true. It was a nightmare which shouldn't happen at any resort, hotel, etc. The 2 men (one dressed in a resort uniform) entered their room with flashlights, had them lay face down on their beds, duct taped their mouths, wrists and ankles, cut the phone lines and robbed them. They then went to 2 other rooms and did the same to both couples. The group I know chose not to stay any longer and booked a flight home....I don't blame them.

If you have questions, I believe you can send them an email from their review post. I think it is odd that some of the rooms have different types of locks on the doors? They have yet to hear back from the resort regarding any type of compensation. Imagine if they would have had their children with them! Absolutley horrible.

I have been to many resorts and have always felt very safe. I will for sure be checking the type of locks on my door in the future.

Hello Group of 10, Just a question, It was my understanding that the police apprehended the men and recovered all of the stolen ariticles. Is that not the case?
