I just got back from Isla Mujeres and had such a wonderful relaxing trip. It truly is beautiful there with an amazing ocean that is quite similar to swimming in a pool!! My entire experience was great EXCEPT for the hotel I stayed in. SEA HAWK HOTEL is NOT a safe hotel. I stayed in room 4 which is the first floor above ground. It has a balcony and a nice view of the beach. The room itself was great!! Clean, comfortable with very nice taste in furniture etc. However, one night someone entered our room while we were sleeping and stole my laptop!!! What was even more scary was they stole $500 pesos (equivalente to $50 usd) from my shorts pocket which was on the floor right next to my bed!!! I did not hear or sense a thing!! I had slept with the screen door (no lock) closed. In the morning I saw that it had been open and my laptop, money, 2 pareos and an undershirt of all things missing. The owner (can't remember his name) was great about it. He filed a police report and later gave me new pareos as his wife owns a gift shop. What disturbs me the most is that the owner tells me it's not the first time something like this has happened and when I looked at the building from outside, I realize it takes only a hop and a jump to climb up to the balconies!! The fact that this has happened before and that nothing has been done to the building to avoid it happening again, worries me. I think a little barbwire would prevent anyone climbing. And if they don't want to do anything to the building they should atleast WARN their customers to sleep with the airconditioning on and lock the sliding door. Some might ask why I would sleep with an unlocked door. Maybe that was stupid but, it was hot and I don't like airconditioning and the last thing on my mind was that someone would actually climb up to the balcony!! The positive to all this is that I didn't wake up while the robber was in the room and that a laptop can always be replaced!! I would definately stay there again ONLY if I saw that they've done something to secure the building.
