    Is there safe deposit boxes in the lobby that I can use to put passports and important documents in ?

    There is a safe in your room which you choose a code for. That's where we kept our passports and other valuables.

    Does anyone know if they have lock boxes behind the front desk for passports, etc instead of using the in room safe? Concerned with what I've read about the amount of theft from the in room safes.
