The hotel felt very safe...and there is a safe in the room as well!

I have been traveling for about 15 years down south, Cuba, Dominican, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Mexico, one I had an item stolen. It was just a Toronto Blue jays hat and that was Cuba. No matter where you travel there is potential for theft and things to go wrong.
It isn't the hotel!!! It is the staff that they hire and they change from time to time and you run a risk of being ripped off by dishonest staff. I have gone to really great restaurants here at home and had waiters and waitress rip me off and on a regular bases.
Play it safe!!!!! If something is valuable lock it in the safe don't leave tempting items out in site. When leaving your room make sure you pull your door closed tightly ( I have came out and slammedthe door and it didn't actually shut only to realize I left something seconds later and go back to an open door.
Don't be flashing money or expensive stuff around to tempt people.
While we were in Punta Cana this year a older man that seemed to like to give the female bartenders a $20 from his cigerette pack for a tip and a smile. Well he fell asleep after many drinks and claimed he was robbed of his cigerettes and $100
Who knows!!! Just use your head and be careful.
