Avoid this hotel at all costs!

Avoid this hotel! I booked a few nights here, and one morning I was out for a bit, and left my wallet hidden (there is no safe in the room), and locked the room. Upon returning to my room, I found my wallet still there, but missing all the money inside. The room was still locked, so clearly it was an employee (a cleaner, manager etc). I ran downstairs and told them someone from the hotel stole from me, and I asked them to call police. The police came and interviewed me, but conveniently there are no cameras in the hallway of course! The police also told me that hotel management accused me of making up the robbery! Absolutely absurd. The police then told me that apparently the hotel has a safe at the front desk that you can rent, but why would I trust the hotel to watch my safe when one of their employees robbed me in the first place! Robberies sometimes happen in poor countries like Panama, but to have it happen from an employee - and then be accused of making it up by the hotel - is absolutely mind boggling. If you want to avoid getting robbed, avoid this hotel at all costs! Spend the extea $15 per night on a decent hotel!
