    Hello Fello Riu Brides,

    I have been reading reviews about Rui and alot of the couples are saying that their rooms were broken into when they were there for their weddings. Has anyone else heard this or had this happen to them. This is a major issue for me!!!!!!!!!!!

      I stayed there in 2006 and had no problems. In fact I left stuff out all the time like my 400.00 camera haha. I am laughing now because nothing happened, but I had no problems and neither did any of the other 75 guest in our party.

        When traveling anywhere you should be careful with your valuables and if there's anything I've learned from those reviews.. do not use the hotel safes.. my suggestion is to bring a luggage lock and place your valuables in an empty suitcase with your other empty luggage.

        Theft does and can happen anywhere.

          When you travel, you always take a chance on theft. Like Angela said, you just need to be careful and use some common sense with your valuables. I'm sending a letter to all of my guests about a month before the wedding. It will contain what documents they need to bring, what to expect at the airport, etc. I'm also going to suggest they leave crazy expensive things at home.

          Be sure you check with the resort before traveling what their policy is on theft. You might want to check into travel insurance and see what coverage is offered.

          I'm not worried about anything happening.

            which Riu do you mean because you posted it in the Jamaica forum but your profile says that you are getting married in DR? I always read such positive reviews of ROR, people seem to love it. But, like anywhere you do need to be careful.

              I read reviews about breakins at our PV hotel. I think it can happen anywhere, you just have to be careful and not leave flashy expensive things laying around.

                Good tips here. I plan on getting small combo locks for our luggage. I'm going to see if I can find a good enough deal to get some for our guests. I'll keep stuff hidden in a dirty sock. Mostly, we'll avoid taking anything valuable.

                  When we were in PV we used the hotel safes and were fine. I guess we naievely (sp??) used the safes. However all of our stuff was there and we kept a lot of cash in it. HOWEVER...when we were touring the RIU Jalisco, we ran into some ladies that were on the same outgoing flight as we were. They recognized us and said that someone had taken some jewlery and a cell phone from their nightstand in their room.

                  I will definitely take some sort of luggage lock with us to lock up our valuables the next time.

                  I really didn't think of it till now. Great looking out!

                    I just bought a lot of 8 luggage combo locks on ebay for $18. I'm going to give them to guests in their OOT bags along with some safety tips.

                    It sounds like they often target wedding parties because they know when they won't be in their room.
