      A bride whose wedding was 2 days before ours told us that while they were at the wedding and reception that all of their valuables were stolen from their room. Laptop, camera, cash out of the safe, etc. It seems that the resorts have a list of all wedding guests and can scan the rooms b/c they know people will be elsewhere during the wedding time. We did see two maids scoping out (or so it seemed) our room prior to our ceremony. We only had cash ... but did not keep it in the safe (my brother had about $80 stolen from the safe ... but they take money from the middle of your bills so it doesn't appear to be anything missing at first look).

      I left my fake e-ring out in plan view, and it was still there afterwards ... so I guess it all depends.

      Anyway, my advice would be to keeo valuables in a suitcase, covered with dirty clothes or something ... and locked with a luggage lock. We then put that suitcase inside of another suitcase and didn't have any issues.

        This is a really good thread. I have heard about people stealing from our hotel. I don't want to tell our guests that, but at the same time I want them to be safe. I would feel horrible if something happened! We didn't have a problem with the in room safe during our last visit, but now I'm getting concerned.

          Wait, white gold can't go in the pool? I didn't know this? Are you ladies bringing your engagement and wedding rings with you? I want to for pictures, and was just planning on wearing it at all times instead of leaving it in the safe Yikes!

              just reading this thread is making me scared. I alway use the hotel safes and never really thought twice about it.

              Now i'm afraid to bring my ring, unless i wear it the whole time.

                I have travelled quite a bit and when not using the in room safe then I simply keep everything in my suitcase ( obviously locked ) , also I always have an extra lock , a combo one that I can use for one of my other luggaages or carry on peices while in the room .
                MY FI has a luggage set that came with a lock and he has ever had any problems either ....I hope I am not jinxing myself , we leave for Dominican for 10 days tonight !!
