Hotel manager at resort in Antalya slams ‘tourists who steal random items’
ANTALYA - Doğan News AgencyA hotel manager from the Mediterranean province of Antalya has slammed those tourists who steal random items from hotels, referring specifically to a number of bizarre recent incidents.
Seyfi Öksüz, the manager of a five-star resort, described via his social media account how a number of tourists opt to steal random items from the hotel, including toilet paper and cutlery.
A full bag of oranges, apples, herbal tea, juice, shampoo, toilet paper and towels were found in one couple’s luggage by security officials last week, Öksüz stated.
A 12-piece set of cutlery was seized in another tourist’s bag, he added.
“We don’t withhold anything from anyone. Buffets are open 24/7 in our hotels. People don’t need to take anything up to the rooms,” Öksüz said, complaining of serial thefts.
“Guests do not need to leave the hotel in order to eat. They do not need to eat in their hotel rooms either. A hungry guest can eat or drink at our restaurant at 3:00 a.m., but this has now become a habit. The guests eat what they can in the restaurant, accumulate what they can’t eat in their rooms and take it with them when they’re checking out,” he said.
