Hotel safes

If your hotel has a key code safe rather than a key you could be in danger of theft and you would not even know it.  The criminal only takes a little bit of money so you would not notice it gone.
 
Here's one potential theory about how the thefts are being done:

I hadn't heard of that way to enter one of those safes. But I have heard that on the keypad safes that only take a 4 digit code that they can tell which 4 digits are used because you do leave smudges on the keys--doesn't take long to figure out what sequence to use. We always either wipe the keypad off, or touch all of the keys after we've locked the safe.

The Bahia has the old metal key kind, also.
 
I kind of like it that way.  It's never been a problem for us - and the lock changes every time the guests change in the room - the lock mechanism is removable, so it's not as if the staff knows which lock mechanism is in any room at any given time.
 
It works for me!  [:)]

I'm "old school" (well, I'm old!!)--and sometimes the old fashioned way is the best!

I prefer a metal key to my hotel room, too.
 
Those "credit card" keys never seem to work well for me. [:@]

Playa Caribe has the same type of safe locks described by Sandinmypants.  I prefer them to the old key code safes we used to have.
