Theft at the Riu Touareg?

We are going to the Riu Touareg in a few weeks time and a bit concerned about the reviews stating there have been theft of money from the room safes. Has anyone else heard of or know of thefts at the hotel?

You can pay for trips before you go. Sounds like it would be advisable.

We have booked with giggling gecko trips so you pay when you get there.. Will have to think of some good hiding places!

There is two cash machines in reception that you can get money out of. There's over 800 rooms and only us and someone else had something taken that I had heard of.try not to worry too much it didn't spoil my holiday and would go back.

Got back Thursday after 2 weeks here and we had no problem with anything being stolen. The first week we accidentally left the safe open and all was ok.

Strangely though, the second week we noticed our door was being double locked by someone every time we returned. Asked rep and she said that no one had signed out a master key for our room bar the maid. She had already made up the room so it was not to do that. We would return to room and it was double locked, then go for a massage and on return it was double locked, then go for a walk on the beach, return an it was double locked again. Can't explain it but nothing was taken.

Glad you had a good time Shamus. Funny you should say about the room being double locked when we went in June for 2 weeks went back to our room a few times and it was double locked but being oap's we both thought the other one had done it but we both denied it. (Of course). Ha ha. Spooky.

Hi All,

We got back on Thursday and we had nothing taken, we had even left our iPad and Kindle out by mistake and it was still there upon our return. What we did do though was lock all of our cash in a suitcase so we knew only we had a key.

Hi we've just returned from the Riu Touareg.

Did not have any problems whatsoever. We put everything of value in the safe.
