I'll be leaving in two days for Playa and can't wait. However, i've been reading the forums for my hotel (Sandos Caracol Beach) over the last couple of days and there have been many entries on money being stolen from room safes. From what most people seem to be saying, it seems like it is the security guards--who have master keys to the safes--that seem to be the culprits. People have also noted that they've encountered security guards with other staff coming out of their rooms with 'excuses' of why they were there, or worse still, people were in their rooms when security came in on them--obviously they thought no-one was home.
Does this type of thing go on at other hotels? Almost all of the posts say not to trust the safes. It's causing me quite some concern since I'll be travelling along and would love some input.
