We had a few problems with theft in PC back in the late 80s when there were only a few hotels to choose from and a lot of the staff were new.Little things like perfume and lipstick that were maybe hard for the staff to get back then went missing but we never lost anything from the safe.Since then we started locking these items in the safe before leaving for the day and in the last 20 years have lost nothing.

Back in the 80s hotels started to pop up on Bavaro Beach and we were likely amoung the first tourists the locals had encountered.Most staff did not speak English and it took some time to weed out some of the thieves from the honest workers.Todays staff are lucky to have a job that pays tips for their good service and few would take the chance of getting caught and losing their job
