On December 27, 2010 a thief came through my hotel room window and robbed us while sleeping. I woke up as he was leaving and could not catch him. The Manager Cesar Cuneo did not take any responsibility for the event. The thief walked right though the front door of the hotel, it definitely needs more security, cameras, fences and...
