I checked into Hotel Barcelo at 16:30 on April 15 2013. Checkin waa efficient. Room was clean. I needed to attend a meeting at 15:00 so I quickly showered and changed. Safe did not properly lock, so I took my passport with me and my dirhams with me. I left my wallet with credit cards and US currency in a hidden compartment of my suitcase. Upon my return to my room at 19:00, I noticed my suitcase wide open, the hidden compartment open and my wallet opened. I counted my credit cards, they were all there. My $ were another story: $350 had been stolen from my wallet. The desk clerk was unhelpful and kept repeating that no one had entered my room during my absence and only the maid had access and she had not entered my room. Clearly, this was nonsense! A ghost did not steal my money! Seeing there was no interest by the hotel staff to investigate the theft, I checked out of the Barcelo and went to the Sofitel Tour Blanxhe.
This is my 26th trip to Morocco. The Barcelo is the only hotel where I have been robbed. Shame on the Barcelo. Will never stay there and will make sure to warn everyone within ear shot to stay away from the Barcelo, ir is a den of thieves!
