Arrived at the property on the evening of Sunday, March 15th checked in and was shown to our rooms. On the evening of Monday, March 16th our hotel room was robbed. My friends wallet and jewelry were taken from their rooms while we were at dinner across the street. We found out after we had returned to the hotel room around 9:30 pm. We search everywhere because we did not believe we could have been robbed because this had never happened to us before. We checked our accounts online and saw that someone had used one of the check cards at a local gas station while we were at dinner.Immediately we went to the front desk to report the incident to find that the office had closed at 10 pm and only a night security guard on duty. The security guard spoke no English which was a another barrier we had to get over in the middle of the night. With the little Spanish we knew we were able to tell him that we were robbed and asked to call the police. The local police came, took our passport numbers and told us we had to go to the police station to make a formal report which we did. We decided to check out of the hotel because we no longer felt safe there. In the morning we spoke to the hotel manager as we were leaving, he sincerely apologized and said he would give us a full refund for our stay at the hotel. I am making a formal request to have a full refund from Expedia/Byblos and will wait to see what happens. The hotel was fine but the violation/robbery was very scary and scarring.
