[quote=@rene]It is now Feb17th and we hear nothing.
Most of the big hotel chains have surveillance cameras everywhere as well as card systems for all hotel room doors. It is possible to review everybody and their where a bouts. This includes staff, the exact time someone entered a room and where they went. Both the Barcelo and Riu chains can provide videos of everything that goes on. Why did they not provide it? ???
In Vegas they have people watching you from secret rooms. They probably can see you get off the plane, everything you do till you get back on the plane!!![/quote]
Key card locks are usually simple battery operated terminals. Most are not connected to allow time stamps on when the door was entered. I think you would be shocked at how many people have a key card that allows access to every room in a resort or hotel. The better the chain, the more they care about security. The more easily the hotel will be investigated and/or sued, the more they care about security. Hotels/resorts are not all that profitable these days. Cutbacks are a way of life everywhere.
Vegas is a totally different animal. Most outside surveillance is done with money supplied by Homeland Security (geysers of cash) and hotel surveillance is done with casino profits.
Provided that you do your homework (most don’t) many areas of Mexico are safe but even I will not travel to problem areas. I’m on a holiday to relax and I can’t do that by constantly looking over my shoulder.
By comparison, I once stayed at a major motel chain in Michigan due to blowing snow and being completely exhausted. We moved the large dresser to barricade the door to feel a bit safer and moved our bed away from the window. The next morning, lots of police around as someone in a unit nearby was murdered overnight.
When your number is up, it’s up. Enjoy life while you can.
