Theft in Paradisus Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

I am planning on having my wedding here and have read many reviews stating that the have been robbed. Many of them had personal items and money stolen from their room including their safes! I thought thats what safes were for!!! I am getting concerned...

Anyone had this problem?

Any insight?

Thanks

As long as you put your valuables in the safe and keep your cases locked when you leave the room, everything will be fine. I was at Paradisus Punta Cana and even when I forgot to lock my case up or left some jewelry on the table in my room, it was still there when I came back.

We, along with our 24 guests had absolutely no concerns or issues whatsoever with any staff at the Paradisus!! Only at the airport did we sort of have an issue....there are guys who try to help move your luggage for you and one of our friends cell phones got picked off of him...

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

Knock on my wooden head here!!!

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.

I too have done a bit of travelling. And it is true about using common sense. Try not to leave out anything that is valuble or that you don't want to replace. Most of the employees in these hotels are honest people who would not risk their jobs with theft. But you will always find a bad apple somewhere in the bunch. So use caution. Don't exchange large amounts of cash, don't wear lots of flashy jewelry and don't leave valuable (money, cameras, phones, jewelry, etc) unattended.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
