Is it safe to have a parcel sent to our resort?

I have found a camera that I would love to have for my trip to Cesme Turkey, however I will need to order it online and have it sent to my resort as Im leaving tomorrow.

It is quite expensive, over $2000 and Im worried it may get stolen from the front desk.

Has anyone had any experience with this type of situation?

I have never been to Turkey and Im really not sure how honest the staff are in hotels there.

Nothing to do with the staff, generally you can trust the people in Turkey, but even when I order online within Turkey it takes at least a few days to arrive by courier, and then usually we have to collect it ourselves from town.

Once İ ordered something from Austria to come with mail, that never arrived, and when it was send again it took again about 2 weeks. İ would never take that risk with a camera!

İ am working now for several years with a point and shoot and even with my iPhone, first İ though İ could never miss my professional camera, but İ can... all you need to learn is to work with some limitation but that can be liberating!

It's not a matter of honesty. It's more that the parcel will take weeks to get to Izmir and will stay at the Customs centre there until you go to collect it, in the unlikely event that news of its arrival ever reaches you!

I have twice sent parcels to Turkish friends neither arrived.one of our friends said he never got the parcel as it would have been stolen by the postman.He told us it would be safer to send to the post office for collection,I would not post again.
